Henry Vegetarian


Returned to try Henry Vegetarian after seeing their Fb post of Chicken Noodle but it turned out to be a Daily special instead of Weekly Special which I missed. Instead, Claypot Braised Noodles was on its Daily Special Menu. Curious what it is, I ordered, and it turned out to another delicious dish I would recommend. Flavourful with Green Pepper & Red chilli slices and Hugh Mushroom as main ingredients, I love the Gravy that went well with the Wanton noodles type of slim noodles.  Thumbs Up for those who like "heavy" flavour food.


Located at corner HDB coffee-shop at Blk 5, Upper Boon Keng Rd, #01-22 (Near carpark entrance) . Cross traffic light from Kallang MRT & keep left. Opens Tues-Sun 10am-9pm.
Search under facebook for "Henry Vegetarian" for updates of Weekly & Daily Specials.

滴水坊 "Waterdrop" Teahouse



Really long time since visited Waterdrop Teahouse as it is kind of far for me but had heard much about it recently from a Fb friend that finally made an effort to visit it. S recommended their Lime Tea and that is really a nice tea that I strongly recommend for future visits too. Very smooth and appetising for a heaty day.
Oh I really missed their Golden Triangle sandwich which sadly was no longer on menu.
We ordered their Cheese sandwich which made me missed their old toasted Golden Triangle Sandwich even more...:P
Dumpling noodles was recommended and always a dish I like to try whenever I hear they are hand-made rather than an instant off-shelf product. Well, perhaps I already had too high an expectation from the internet recommendations, it kind of fall short slightly of my standard but luckily the "Q" noodles saved the dish to make it still worth trying.
But am glad to know my favourite snack "Crispy Veg. Sliced Chicken" still on menu, hmm would love to try next round...

This teahouse is located within the 佛光山 Fo Guang Shan building (level 3) near Punggol MRT.

GreenDot @ Paya Lebar Square

Yummy Chef recommended Burger~ Lion's Mane Mushroom Burger,  (1st item on burger section on menu ) tasted like long missed McChicken! 
Was told patty made of monkey-head mushroom, chewy with bite, overall met my criteria of a good vegetarian burger! 
Herbal Noodles ~ Well cooked with mild herbal taste with variety of mock ingredients and vegetables.
I will definitely return to try their burgers again...:-)

Pine Tree Cafe

Stir-fry Black-pepper Udon ...at this long time stall, Pine Tree Café, on level 2 of Fortune Centre near left of Up escalator. Nice, Spicy & Flavourful, just that I find the portion is small :-p. It was accompanied  with a bowl of simple soup which aids to help cool one down on the spiciness of the black-pepper. :-)
Their vegetarian Char Siew Wanton Noodles was in general nice too with the soy type mock char siew and Q slim noodles. The only setback was their Fried Wanton came too little filling ingredients and the thick skin came with a strong flour taste that wasn't crispy at all. Hopefully, they can improve on their fried wanton to have more fillings.

SUFOOD (舒果)

SUFOOD ~ the deluxe Italian-inspired Vegetarian Cuisine located at Raffles City with set meals at $29.90++ had attracted many vegetarians' attention...
Recommending some preferred dishes during a recent gathering...


Standard Appetisers for All 
From light flavoured Yuca root with blueberry sauce, to unique stack of green to the strongest flavour of cherry tomato jelly amongst the three. 

Salads

This Classic Garden Salad was nice & fresh!

This Summer Salad was not bad too...
Oh! The complimentary vinegar drink is most memorable, must try!
But being Not a bread lover, I can give their Rosemary Breadstick a miss to enjoy my other dishes...
Oh I Love their Soup!

Their Cream of Pumpkin Soup was excellent!


For their Chinese style soup, this Root Soup of stewed Burdock root, lotus root, and cashew nuts is preferred though I think the standard dipped a little from last visit.

Main Courses

For mushroom and potato lovers, I would recommend this Baked Potato Al Funghi.


This Mediterranean Vegetable Skewers came in interesting  presentation with nice flavoured rice (but too dry) which tasted like Rice Dumpling though white rice is mentioned in menu.

Desserts!

Interesting Sesame Panna Cotta ~ look liked Chinese Black Sesame paste but was Chilled cream and milk simmered with black sesame seed puree. Nice! Served with nice Mint Herbal Tea too. :-)

Banana Cheesecake with wafer roll and coffee.

Well, some of their dishes do contain egg, onion and garlic and the staff had been trained to ask customers their diet preference of omitting them which I think added points to their service.
The presentation of the food certainly attracted a lot of snapshots from diners, and can be a good gathering place for Fusion food lovers if one is not too concerned with the price.:-)



SUFOOD is located at Raffles City Shopping Centre (CityHall) #02-19.
Reservation in advance via phone: 63335338 is recommended...
Lunch: 11.30am - 4.30pm (last order at 3pm)
Dinner: 5.30pm - 10.30pm (last order at 9pm)

Keat Lim Vegetarian Food



Ventured to Whampoa Food centre (Blk91? nearer to market), and discovered there are 2 Vegetarian stalls, both popular with long queues on non popular Vegetarian days (Lunar 1st & 15th day of month). Good signs of popularity of Vegetarian amongst the people. :-)
Decided to try Keat Lim Vegetarian, which serves standard fried Mee hoon/Noodles dishes and a number of Delicious looking vegetable dishes and fried stuff. Nice noodles, especially with good choice of vegetables and braised mushrooms and well-fried Wuxiang roll. :-)
