Sunrise Bread Cafe

Another nice vegetarian bakery choice for vegetarians! Again located at the Vegetarian Paradise, at Bugis area - Fortune centre.

It is located at center row of shops just after Tracy Juice from direction of Waterloo street, you may just easily miss it.
Tried their vegetarian Otah bread & Sardine bread. The Sardine tasted much like the vegetarian Otah smashed but nice in their unique way. They also serve bread with Vegetarian Curry as their main course which looks tempting.
Passed by recently and they had added some main course to their menu other than just bread.
Looks interesting...
Located at level 1 of Fortune centre (190 Middle Road), at row of shops after Tracy Juice.

Uncle Rojak (Vegetarian)

This is quite a surprise, was passing by the coffee-shop of basement 1 of Fu Lu Shou Complex, at far end, I saw the wordings of "Uncle Rojak (Vegetarian) " & that immediately attracted my attention. Long since last tried Rojak, and per label, it's really an uncle selling Rojak!
Unlike some vegetarian Rojak tried which their Rojak gravy is more diluted, his Rojak gravy was really thick that I have to ask him if he was really serving vegetarian version. The gravy also had a special ingredient added: thinly shredded lime pieces that did add a special taste to it. The cucumbers were still crunchy & taupok still nice to bite when I packed home. For those who want to watch their diet & have to avoid the shrimp paste in non-vegetarian version, they could turn to this vegetarian version.

He also has a special dish: Rojak Popiah which he uses his Rojak gravy with lettuce & bean sprouts to roll into popiah. Would love to try but was sold out by the time was my turn to order.

When you are tired from your CNY goodies shopping at Bugis, you may just drop by the coffee-shop for a snack. I noticed that there is also another vegetarian stall in the same coffee shop. :-)

The Uncle Rojak stall is located at far corner of coffee-shop at basement 1 of Fu Lu Shou Complex.

Classic Lao Di Fang Vegetarian Restaurant PL

Another favourite vegetarian place, Classic Lao Di Fang Vegetarian Restaurant at Park Mall, Orchard. Relaxing environment, another nice, simple and cosy meeting place with friends.

Asparagus with mushroom - healthy dish with Macadamia nuts

Spicy beancurb - strongly recommended!
The spicy beancurb is more of those sweet & sour chilli gravy, very appetising to go with their brown rice and the beancurb tasted so smooth that really gave a sense of satisfaction.:-)
Also another outlet for consideration for Chinese New Year visit. They already have their Chinese New Year and Reunion dinner menu available for booking. (Was informed they are open on 1st day of Chinese New year, rest on 2nd day and opens from 3rd day)

It is located at 9 Penang Rd, Park Mall, Basement 1, #B1-12, just turn left from the down escalator.

Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant (Coronation Shopping Plaza)

Another visit to my family's all-time favourite with universal votes from young to elderly : Miao Yi Vegetarian.

Some new dishes this round:-)

Yam basket with mushrooms - scored points with its crispy texture of yam basket

Sweet & Sour chicken pieces - well-flavoured to attract non-vegetarian children
Mapo Tofu (Minced meat spicy beancurb)-Excellent gravy that goes well with rice:-)
Generally, if you are looking for authentic Chinese dinner dishes, this is the place to visit especially to introduce to die-hard non-vegetarian folks.

They are a good consideration if you are looking for Vegetarian outlets that open during 1st 3 days of Chinese New Year period.
