Yuan Wei Quan Vegetarian (YWQ)

Its menu of the day - vegetarian fish soup with beancurb skin rolls is always a favourite and delight to have when I visit Toa Payoh Central.:-) Hopefully, the price will remain at $2.50 for at least next 1 year...:-I

The food court is located at B1 of HDB Hub. You can either enter thru basement car park entrance or from entrance besides McDonald from Bus interchange.The stall is located at far right end if from entrance besides McDonald.

素满园 (Kopitiam at Tiong Bahru Plaza)

A long time since last visit, this round arrived slightly before 5pm again but fortunately they do serve those easy to cook noodles like Lor Mee, hence I ordered their Lor Kway Teow.

They used the thick flat version of Kway Teow and the colour of gravy and ingredients which consists mainly of Tau Pok made me mistaken that they had given me Kway Chap instead.

However, the gravy came with some mild degree of "glueiness" so it is indeed Lor Mee gravy of maybe another clan and the taste is mild like Kwap Chap too. :-)

Long Ji Soya Bean Drink Stall

This bowl of soya bean curb only costs less than a dollar, very reasonable in today's inflation market, and a good & chic remedy for a bad throat.
Just like Cong Cong Vegn, this Long Ji Soya Bean drink stall at Tiong Bahru Market also
has a competitor who always has long queues. Is it fengshui? Before it moved into the new renovated market food centre, in my fading memory, it used to enjoy good business as its competitor now located at same row. Curious, I tried once to buy from its competitor when queue is not long and also at this stall. I think Long Ji serves as smooth & delicate soya bean curb if not better. I could understand for Cong Cong which its style of cooking is different from its competitor but for the soya bean drink stalls, hmm, I really don't know why???:P

Located at 2nd level food centre, Far right 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

Yong Vegetarian

KL Noodles! Stir-fry thick flat yellow noodles in thick dark sauce. Had not tasted for a long time since my favourite stall that cooks this well near my home moved. Served in a round bowl rather than plate, it looks more like Lor Mee. However, it tasted like the authentic dark sauce noodles that I missed. Love the soft vege that almost melts in one's mouth and its just nice, not too salty gravy with pepper. Love it!
The stall is at People 's Park Complex, located along the outer stretch opposite Bossini/McDonald.
It is located beside a fruit & drink stall and the 4th stall (#01-1042) counting from the 1st stall (directly opposite Bossini shop) that sells banana fritter & fried pastries.

Komala's Restaurant

Appetising? This is cheese Naan from Komala's Restaurant. The cheese is light and if you eat the whole naan by yourself, it is very very filling. One of the gravy that comes with it contains small potato balls which tasted quite nice, however, the gravy contains onion and is not suitable for pure vegetarians.

The only pure vegetarian dish (without onion & garlic) may be their vegetarian burger & fries set which the patty is actually potato with some curry seasoning. Love their well-fried thick fries.:-)

Saw quite anumber of patrons ordered their Bhattura which is gigantic & tempting-looking. May be next trial...

It has quite a few branches around town area, for info, you may explore their web:

Eight Immortals (AMK Hub)

Visited the Ang Mo Kio (AMK) Hub recently & glad to find another Vegetarian stall of Eight Immortals in the mega Foodcourt, Food Fare, on level 3. It is located at an easily identifiable spot, 1st stall on right of the foodcourt's entrance. And my all-time favourite, Ngian Toufu is available at this outlet. As usual, generous in portion but unlike its Toa Payoh outlet, which serves with herbal soup, it's just plain soup over here. Nevertheless, reasonably priced & value for $.:-)

一心素食, Chinatown

This is their Clayplot noodles & one thing I like abt Yi Xin Vegn is their flexibility in allowing combination of noodles with their different soup base. Generally, this & their Fiery Spicy Noodles uses the yellowish round or thick noodles but they allow change of noodles to La Mian or any choice noodles. Nice soup base & generous ingredients, but the portion is smaller in comparison as the claypot is smaller in comparison to their normal bowls. Just nice portion when you are not too hungry. :-)

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.
