Eastern Highland Healthy Cake House (Rocher Centre)


Thanks to S, this year I managed to get to try this Chocolate- flavoured Vegetarian Christmas Log Cake. Beautiful, isn't it?

However, taste wise, I think I still prefer their Birthday cakes which in my opinion was much smoother, softer and creamy in taste (maybe also bec the Birthday cake was ordered and freshly baked while the Log cake was bought off -shelve and could be in their freezer for more days in comparison that caused the texture to harden:P)

But it was really a very beautiful cake so we have to thank all who managed to let vegetarians enjoy eggless cakes!!!

Also Big Thank you to all who had contributed to make vegetarian food more & more attractive and delicious in taste !!!

Rice House 粥大王

Last posting for Rice House was July08, how time flies.
This time I decided to reorder my once-favourite- their signature vegetarian duck rice.
In my fade memory, their yam rice used to taste better but the gravy for the mock duck (made from mushroom stalk) is still as good. And their belachan chilli is nice too.

I noticed that they seem to have increased their range of tibits to sell at their shop.:P

They are located at Blk 129 Geylang East ave 1, beside Foo Hai Chan Monastery & Opposite Sims Ville Condo. May alight at 2nd bus stop from Aljunied MRT & walk further up & turn left to Monastery direction.They are closed on Monday. Tel: 6747 3739

Their Mini-pot noodles, QQ noodles with sweet soup full of vegetarian mock ingredients and seaweed.
Laksa which my friend commented tasted better than Geylang's Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food.
Their vegetarian Prawn Dumpling soup noodles, noodles also QQ and their dumplings very nice! It even consisted of a mock sliced prawn in each dumpling & the mock meat ingredients was very replicate of the real version with black fungus added to its taste. I would like to try their fried prawn dumpling version next time. :-)

一心素食, Chinatown

一心素食 really has a variety of soup noodles with similar soup base though.
I tried its LaMian this round.
The hand-made noodles texture was good & well-cooked.
I would strongly recommend Yi Xin to Vegetarians who like Soup noodles.:-)

Located at a coffeeshop at 39 Temple Street, 一心素食 is just near centre of street opp Lucky Chinatown, beside stretch where the new Grand court Vegetarian restaurant is. Opening hours: 8am to 10pm Daily.

素食林 Su Shi Lin

One of my favourite snacks: slim strips of potato chips. A new dish tried: Ngian Toufu with curry gravy. The Tou Pok is very crispy, and their curry is always nice:-)

Black bean sauced Hor Fun & Wanton Noodles.
The Hor Fun tasted average, maybe not saltish enough in my opinion. My friend tried the Wanton noodles and find it quite okay.

Cong Cong Vegetarian stall at Tiong Bahru Market

New Vegetarian Fried Hokkien Noodles in addition to their usual Fried Maggie Noodles was tempting enough to make me order it and Eyeing their equally tempting curry, I requested for more gravy to make it into semi-laksa or curry noodles. A wise choice indeed. They should have served this semi-laksa or curry noodles as one of their specialties.

Located at 2nd level food centre, Far left Corner from direction of escalator of Tiong Bahru Market (30 Seng Poh Road), about 2 bus-stop away from Tiong Bahru MRT. Bus: 5, 16, 33, 63, 195, 851

House of Tau Sar Piah

I think Balestier Road may be one place where there are many temples around and surrounded by eatery shops but you can hardly find any vegetarian stalls.
I walked up & down from stretch nearest to Thomson Medical centre to Shaw Plaza but could find no vegetarian stalls. I asked around and no one knows of any! So, this is really a potential place for vegetarian stall owners!!! I didn't have the time to locate Quality Hotel which is only place I know in that area that has a Vegetarian restaurant. In the end, I managed to special order Vegetarian Hor Fun from a non-vegetarian eatery outlet in Balestier Plaza. And look what a big portion of green vege I had and it's quite economical & tasty:-)

Balestier Road is famous for its many outlets of Tau Sar Piah (traditional bean paste pastry,豆沙饼). I think the House of Tau Sar Piah is the only Vegetarian outlet I can find along the stretch of Balestier Road that I explored. It is located at 529 Balestier Road, just beside the Kwang Im Tng Temple. I was surprised besides the traditional sweet & saltish type of pastry fillings, it has coffee, pine-apple and green-tea flavour as well.

Although not much a traditional pastry lover, I find the green-tea pastry that I tried quite acceptable. (Sorry, its surface may have suffered some casualty on my way home:P) Worth a try if you are vegetarian and love traditional pastry as the non vegetarian version generally has pork lard or onion oil as part of its ingredients. :{

And, do feedback to me if you know of any vegetarian eatery around Balestier Road as I may have to travel to there occasionally.

Thank you!!!

园香素食 Yuan Xiang Vegetarian

It's being long while that I visited the stall. Was my last feedback being tapped or just inflation? :P I think now their dishes started from $3.50. :P

I ordered their Lor Mee, its gravy came with sufficient vinegar, hence was quite appetising. The 2 big brown pieces were actually mock prawn coated with a layer of flour which tasted rather nice. Portion wise, just right this round. :-)

The stall is located at the food centre just opposite Bras Basah Complex.

莲芯茶坊, Lotus Heart Tea House

Yes, I couldn't resist the temptation to visit them to try their new menu:P

I discovered that their previous quarter's menu still remains but they added more dishes shown in their poster like the Lamian. Deciding that their Seafood Lamian may contain too much mock products as reflected from their poster, I ordered their "Eight Treasures Spicy Lamian" (sorry, cannot remember exact name:P) which had a good portion of beancurn cubes and mushrooms. (I think some unidentifiable slightly bigger pieces of bean curb-like ingredients maybe monkey-head mushrooms). The Lamian's noodles texture was relatively smooth and I liked its spicy sauce or gravy that had abit of Sichuan Spicy taste. Its roasted cashew nuts & peanuts added marks to it too. Mum liked their delicate yam pastry while I am not much a yam pastry lover myself :P.

With their new concept of having tables available at where it used to be an exhibition hall, ( now where the souvenir shop & library are) you could have an enjoyable meal there too. They have some nice souvenirs that you could consider as Christmas gift, e.g. their presentable recyclable bags, hp accessories etc.

Their new web link:

The tea house's operating hours are daily from 9am to 7pm with last order at 6.30pm.
It is located at level 2 of Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum which is located at Chinatown: 288 South Bridge Rd, off Sago street or opposite the famous Maxwell food centre, nearest MRT: Outram/Chinatown MRT.
