Vegetarian Stall at Singtel Comcentre Cafeteria

I prefer their special of the day menu which is at much reasonable price at range of $2-2.50. Fearing the small portion that cannot last me until late dinner, I often requested for upsize and they are really generous with the request.:-)
The spaghetti upsized costed only $3 & the wanton (mini dumplings) noodles' original cost is only $2. It may looked like there was insufficient gravy for the hugh portion of spaghettis but it turned out to be just nice portion and the tomato-sauced gravy (and spicy lovers, do request for their chilli sauce) was appetising for you to finish the hugh plate.
I ordered their soup wanton noodles upsized which the noodles almost filled up the whole bowl and it came with an extra portion of vegetables at only $2.50.
The soup was dark-sauced which is different from normal clear soup for wanton and was spicy with heaps of black pepper in it. The wantons were hand-made & nice. :-) I find these 2 menu of the day Very fulfilling and gives you a sense of satisfaction. :-)

The stall is located at Basement 1 of cafeteria of Singtel Comcentre at Somerset. No name (just known as stall m) but easily located when you visit the cafeteria, entering from door leading to car-park.

Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant

This shop is located just opposite the Chinatown complex's row of shop houses along Smith street. Xing Hua is a place in China and I assume their speciality is supposed to be their Xing Hua dishes. Hence, I ordered their Xing Hua Fried Vermicelli (Mee Sua/Mian Xian). The Vermicelli is usually cooked with Soup and is softer than Rice Vermicelli (Mee Hoon) so it requires additional skill to stir-fry it. I like its softness (my friend once commented that I am a baby food lover:P) and it comes with an overly generous portion of vegetables & garnished with some peanuts.

Its Ngian Toufu variety is not much, but the soup is quite nice with some herbal taste. The shop actually serves a variety from mixed rice dishes, stir fry dishes to snacks as well as brewed soup.

甜甜屋 BB Home Sweet Home Cafe

(Replaced by new outlet...)
It is great to know more vegetarian places available at Bishan!
Originally I had intended to try Fo Xin again at S11 but saw a queue for it and as I was rushing for my class, I decided to make a detour to this new vegetarian shop introduced by Vegetarian Society's newsletter, located just a few steps away.
I recalled seeing All About Veggie's compliment about its rice sets and phew, no queue then and was warmly introduced to try their black bean sauced abalone mushroom rice which they promised could be served within a few minutes.

No regrets ordering it as it really came fast, and though I can't really taste the black bean sauce as it was named, it had a pinch of black pepper that made the gravy very appetising to go with the rice. The mushroom with the red pepper & vege were well cooked and hmm, I like the black pepper gravy which was not too spicy. I guess I will go back to try other rice sets in future ...:-)

It is located at HDB behind Bishan CPF building & Library, steps away from S11 coffee shop: 505A Bishan Street 11 #01-440 Singapore 570505.
Opening hours: 11.30 to 3pm, 5pm to 10pm. Rests on
Thurs except if it's the 1st or 15th day of the lunar month

Fancy Vegetarian Food stall at Lucky Plaza

Yes, another new discovery of reasonably priced vegetarian food stall at Orchard!!!

This stall is situated in a "coffee shop" near to the right rear of Lucky Plaza level B1, among various food stalls, which is a hit with many office workers in Orchard.
It sells mixed rice dishes as well as stir fry Hor Fun, etc. I ordered the mixed dishes (my favorite mushrooms, braised beancurb skin, and a piece of mock prawn which is actually made of beancurb skin) with their ready fried Kway Tiao & noodles and that costed only $2.80. The dishes were not oily & the curry gravy was great.
If you are observant enough, there are actually small shops with food stalls located at the shopping malls like Lucky Plaza & Far East Plaza (upper levels) to cater to office workers in this expensive area.

This "coffee shop" is located to the further right of Asian Food Mall, just walk further right from the Food Mall and you will find this shop towards direction of the right entrance of Lucky Plaza.

Fo Xin Vegetarian Stall at S11, Bishan

Located at S11, at a HDB block just behind Bishan Library/CPF building, the stall sells mixed rice dishes as well as Stir-fry dishes.
I tried their Mee Goreng & Fried Kway Teow. Quite reasonable priced with reasonable portion.
Looks nice? I prefer their Fried Kway Teow which the noodles still retains a certain level of moisture which you can see from the picture. I must compliment the beancurb cubes they use as one of the ingredients. I think it is the smoothest ever tried. I would like to try their Toufu Goreng next. :-)

Vegetarian Stall at Singtel Comcentre Cafeteria

New Discovery!!! There is actually a cafeteria or rather a traditional food court at Basement 1 of Singtel Comcentre at Somerset.
No name (just known as stall m) but easily located when you visit the cafeteria, entering from door leading to car-park.
This stall sells mainly rice/fried mee hoon/noodles with dishes with also menu of day like spaghetti & vegetarian chicken rice. In comparison to other food courts in Orchard area, the food at the cafeteria is generally cheaper (3 vege dishes with brown rice at around S$3)and is always crowded.
Was surprised that their vegetarian chicken rice cost only $2.20 with value for money portion of fried drumstick (smooth beancurb skin coated with a layer of flour) and bean sprouts. The rice was fragrant and tasted very much like the real version except that it was abit dry and the chilli was abit too sour for my taste. Considering the price, it is definitely value for money....
