Vegan Burg (Raffles Place)

I was at Raffles Place to run an errand and decided to try Vegan Burg again.
Well, only 2 choices for No onion No garlic as Creamy Shrooms not available that day.
Decided to try Cracked Mayo of Soy Patty verus Tangy Tartar (more of fish fillet).
Though the burger top did not come in good shape as their menu picture but I like their generous portion of lettuce. The patty was quite nice, something like my fading memory of McDonald's McChicken patty. The chilli & tomato sauce available for self-service at the counter was not without onion & garlic and upon asking, the helpful staff provided another version. Quite good service. :-)
Vegan Burg 's outlet at Golden Shoe Carpark #01-28D, is located more to the right of the building behind a printing shop.

Lan Xiang Yuan Vegetarian (Koufu, Commonwealth MRT)

I was craving for the Stir-fry dishes of Green Vegetarian Kitchen (GVK) at Commonwealth Koufu foodcourt but discovered that Lan Xiang Yuan had taken over. On its menu signboard do show similar dishes being served.
Fried Udon was my choice for that day and well, pretty reasonable taste though I would prefer it to be sweeter with dark sweet sauce like Fried Kway Tiao. It's a pity though that its portion smaller than GVK's. Well, at least it is another vegetarian stall retained though sad with  turnover rate of nice vegetarian stalls at foodcourts recently.

Econ Vegetarian Food

Sadly, ceased operations ...

Passed by the corner coffee-shop by chance to find a new Vegetarian stall and it's Econ Vegetarian which had shifted from Geylang to 745 Havelock Road shophouse corner coffee-shop (Hong Xiang Eating House) near NTUC Fairprice.
Their menu had increased choice to include stir-fry dishes like Vegetarian Seafood Hor Fun, and Fish Slice Mee Hoon, etc. However, as I was craving for fries, I decided to order their Grilled Skewers which looked appetising. Good presentation is their strength and the coleslaw was good & fries well-fried. The Skewers were however too flavourful sauced that I have to drink lots of water after.
Good to find the fifth vegetarian stall in this small estate.  Hopefully it will survive well in this neighborhood, being only available vegetarian stall for dinner and supper (10am-10pm daily except closes on Sunday unless it falls on 15th of Lunar month, rests from 2-4pm).
Likely return to try my favourite Spaghetti and stir-fry dishes.:P

Kingsland Vegetarian

C recommended a budget yet good and popular vegetarian food stall at corner Halal coffee-shop just behind Stanley street ~ Kingsland Vegetarian inside 121 Eating House, at Telok Ayer Street. The only set-back is hard to find seats during busy lunch hours. But it has good variety of Daily Special & economical rice dishes and reasonable priced too.
Wanting something soupy, I had Kway Chap on its Daily Special menu. The soup was good & the flour pieces smooth, with good portion of ingredients. No wonder there is always queue which is fast moving though. Will visit again one fine day...

Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food (Tai Sun Eating House near Lavender MRT)

Returned for quick dinner, I was curious on the first item on their Stir-fry menu: how does the Black-bean Dry Hor Fun taste like as preserved black beans are usually used in the wet version Hor Fun to add an unique flavour.  

It was per reflected in picture...not very blending to the Hor Fun. Unless you are a great fan to such preserved black bean, which you love eating it dry just like that, I don't see the need or appreciate adding it in the dry version.  
However, the beans aside, the stir-fry Hor Fun came sinfully oily but Nice!
Just drink more tea to dilute the fats later...
Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food  is located at Ground level of the HDB block 808, French Road, inside Tai Sun Eating House , next to a NTUC Fairprice.
(2nd HDB block from Lavender MRT for the evening as well, starts at 6+am to 8pm Daily)

Tian Xiang Xiao Ji

Discovered a new vegetarian eatery besides the Pandan Cake shop at level 2 of Blk 535 Hong Lim Complex (HDB block opposite Hong Lim Market and Food Centre).
Was told it opened for slightly more than 2 months, opens around 11am-5pm from Mon-Friday. On Saturdays, they serve free food to elders above 60 years old from 11am till food finishes. 
The shop generally serves 2 Daily Special and desserts. On day of visit was Herbal Soup Noodles. The soup tasted like Bak Kut Teh (Pork Ribs' Soup) with mild herbal taste. They used La-mian as noodles which I think may taste smoother if cooked longer. The smell of their Red Bean Paste dessert was enticing but too bad I was too full to sample. Maybe another time...:-P

Blossom Seeds

Sadly, they ceased operations, but now they diverted to serve Free Vegetarian food at Yes Natural Restaurant located near Aljunied MRT on Lunar 1st of each month...hopefully that will sustain...

Blossom Seeds at 440 Race Course Road : Free Vegetarian lunches for the needy or Pay As You Deem for general public as token of appreciation and subsidises towards future meals. (Think it is a miniature of Spore Buddhist Lodge concept to encourage vegetarianism to all)
Opens from 11am to 2pm daily except Friday & Sunday.
All are Welcome.
For those not familiar with the area, here's more description of how to get there:
From Farrer Park MRT exit B, pass by HDB blocks along Tessensohn road with wholesaler shops selling crystals, then cross opposite to Sakaya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple and walk down the stretch of shop houses along Race Course road. Near the last few units of the last stretch of shop-houses, you will find Blossom Seeds.

Simple & cosy environment. It is buffet style depending on what is available from the market. On day of visit, we enjoyed Cabbage, Winter-melon, Xiao Bai Cai, Stir-fry bean curd, Fried vegetables fritters and Wanton skin pieces as well as Soup and water.
After food, one will have to proceed to washing area to wash own cutlery according to steps indicated on wall of washing area.

Your contribution will go a long way to benefit the next customer who visits them...

素满园 (Forks & Spoon Food Court at Toa Payoh Central)

Long time didn't visit the Forks & Spoon Food Court at Toa Payoh Central and originally craving for Laksa which I recall it used to serve, I was glad to fnd a vegetarian stall still around but realised it was taken over by 素满园 SuManYuan.
The picture menu of Stir-fry dishes differs from the usual SuManYuan menu that I recall and it did not serve the usual SuManYuan style of  Laksa & Lor Mee.
Only economic rice is available during time of visit so I ordered their brown rice with dishes. Reasonable price for reasonable portion and good to enjoy a bowl of hot soup.
Hope it continues to serve the patrons well.

Yes Natural Bakery (Haig Road)

Exploring the Haig Road area for vegetarian food, I came across an outlet of Yes Natural Bakery! Located at Blk12, Haig Road, #01-349, S430012, it is just near/opposite the Haig Road Hawker centre. There's even waffle and ice-cream on sale in the shop but I am not sure if it's also eggless though.
But at least a complement if the only vegetarian stall at the hawker centre is not open, one can also have the eggless bread.
I was told that to cater to the local likes there, the cakes are not eggless so if you are on vegetarian diet, do clarify any purchases in this outlet on a safe mode.
The shop also sells vegetarian supplies.
Opens daily from 7am-9.30pm. Tel: 67482295.

SunnyChoice (Bt Batok)

SunnyChoice, haha not to be mistaken, this is not my shop but the name did catch my attention! :P
In fact it has 3 outlets but we visited the one at Bukit Batok and it is conveniently located at walking distance from Bukit Batok MRT. Just cross the traffic light towards Mcdonald but turn left at 1st HDB block before it, then past the HDB branch office, one will see a couple of small shops. It is diagonally across Pasta Mania of West Mall.

Hakka Abacus, not a fan of the dish till I tried it here. 
The outer skin was smooth and soft and it kind of melted in one's mouth.
Their Pineapple Fried Rice using brown rice which is not that common in Spore but encouraged was flavourful and the mock floss goes excellent with it.

Oh, I would also recommend their Vegetable Curry. The curry gravy won praises from all. And I love their soup, especially the Mushroom soup which may not look good but it did taste good! 

Located at Blk 630, Bukit Batok Central, #01-154, S650630, it opens on Tuesday-Sunday 10am-9pm with 1st order: 11am to Last order: 8.30pm.
However, if the 1st or 15th of Lunar month falls on Monday, it will operate and rests on Tuesday instead. Contact: 68990918. Ref:

Loving Hut (Suntec)

Was at the renovated Suntec Convention Hall for a seminar, so I make good use of the opportunity to explore the new & old vegetarian outlets there.
Well, glad to know that Loving Hut at level 3 of  SuntecTower 2 where a couple of cafes or restaurants are situated is still there. Wanting something soupy, I decided to try its Wanton soup noodles. Considering the high rental at the area, the portion is still reasonable with quite a good portion of vegetables with 3 fried wanton (which I would prefer the unfried version in soup or served separately as it kind of become soggy in soup). 
Taste wise reasonable but the spaghetti next table looked more flavourful which I may be inclined to order for future visits.  Oh, but do take note that some of the dishes contain onions/garlic so do take note to enquire if you also do not want/take onion/garlic.
A quick exploration of other vegetarian outlets at Suntec area:
On same level, just beside Loving Hut is Pangat Indian Vegetarian Cuisine, and at the other corner is Komala Indian Vegetarian outlet.
However, with the renovation there is no longer vegetarian stall at the new Basement food court. Realising the potential vegetarian needs, the new Breadtalk café just opposite the food court has a big poster that states it serves vegetarian friendly dishes (curry & spaghetti)
Venturing to Millenia Walk, one could find 7 Sensations which had moved in to #P3-07 (3rd Floor) Parco. I went to find its 2nd level food court located near Harvey Norman or linked walkway from Marina Square to discover it had also renovated but thankfully, a vegetarian stall is still available. The old "Eight Immortals" stall had been replaced with "SuManYuan" which used to operate in the old Suntec food court.
So, there are still choices for vegetarians visiting Suntec area and hopefully more vegetarian friendly choices are becoming available. :-)

Bento set from 素食林 (Su Shi Lin) Happy Realm

This is the 2nd time I had this catered Bento sets at retreats and I was surprised with the answers where these delicious bento sets were from. I was told they were from Happy Realm, the traditional vegetarian restaurant at Pearl centre!
This is really a pleasant surprise to us and I am really touched while we enjoyed the bento set which each has a good variety of dishes and while eating, one can feel the "heart" put in by the preparer in preparing the bento sets. CHEERS!

Happy Realm, a traditional vegetarian restaurant, located at:
100 Eu Tong Sen Street, #03-16 Pearls Centre, Spore 059812

Bishan Vegetarian

Another satisfactory meal from Bishan Vegetarian.  
Vegetarian Fish Soup Kway Tiao without milk~clear soup.
Love their hugh pieces of compressed beancurd skin texture of mock fishes used with generous portion of vegetables and Kway Tiao. Worth the value at $4.
And the hot clear soup is nice on a rainy day.

Located just above the food centre above the Bus Interchange, Up from the colorful stairs near the traffic light, you can see it just 2nd stall away from Drink stall.

Soon Lee Vegetarian (Near Red Hill MRT Hawker Centre)

Dumpling soup noodles! I really missed good ones and always on look-out for good vegetarian version. On its Daily Special menu of Soon Lee is Dumpling noodles so that's my choice for that day.
I love their soup Wanton type of noodles, Smooth & the mock ikan bilis and mock fried onion slices with the chilli padi really made the soup a fantastic drink that I always finish up. :P
The dumpling though not hand-made but can be bought from instant frozen type, instead of cooking it directly into soup and become mushy after, they are smart to steam it that the shape remains firm and nice and add on the soup after.
A satisfactory meal! :-)
Located beside the market near RedHill MRT, it is the central corner stall at 1st stretch opposite the HDB shops.

Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food (Tai Sun Eating House near Lavender MRT)

Hurray, a new vegetarian stall opens within walking distance (2nd HDB block) from Lavender MRT for the evening as well (starts at 6+am to 8pm Daily).
A good news for vegetarians who visits the area for events for the morning & evening .
I was quite surprised by the revamped Ground level of the HDB block 808, French Road that now houses a NTUC Fairprice & on its left, a new Tai Sun Eating House that has a vegetarian stall with same name Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food but is unrelated to the popular Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food which is famous for its vegetarian laksa at Geylang.

Was told the owner is a Malaysian who used to cook for Vegetarian restaurant in Malaysia and he serves economic rice dishes as well as Stir-fry dishes. We tried some stir-fry dishes such as LuoHan Zhai (Mixed vegetables), Vegetarian Honey-sauced Pork Ribs, Fried Rice and Spicy Beancurd.
The Mixed Vegetables is of average standard, for those who don't mind mock meat will like the well marinated vegetarian pork ribs, the fried rice was of dryer & firmer grains though my preference is of softer & wetter version, its fragrance saved the dish. And my favourite is the appetising soft beancurd, thumbs up for that. :-)
On its signboard showed pictures of laksa and dry noodles, etc. as well.
Will definitely revisit given the long hours availability.
For those who may arrive late close to 8pm, to avoid disappointments, you may like to give Mr Wu a call at 98788639 to place your orders.
May there be continuity to serve the vegetarians around the area. :-)

Yes Natural F&B (Retail & Bakery)

It's been a long while since I pass by Geylang Lor27 stretch (2nd stretch of shop houses near Aljunied MRT) & I was impressed by the renovated Yes Natural Retail shop which now is just side by side with its Bakery & Restaurant.
The product shelves are now much better organised from last visit and wide variety and choice of similar Vegetarian products of different brands such as the range of tidbits shown in picture which also have improvements in packaging.

Likewise is their improved bakery presentation of vegetarian bread, it is getting more popular and does not lose out in taste to non-vegetarian version.
Cheers to more vegetarian bread & pastry choices...

Yes Natural Super-mart, Bakery & Restaurant are located at 51-57 Lorong 27 Geylang, Singapore 388184

Angel's Bistro


Located at 28 Stanley Street, it is just a street across from Amoy food centre near Tanjong Pagar MRT. On day of visit during lunch hours, it was hard to find a seat.  
They have regular Daily menu and even samples displayed at the cashier to facilitate orders. Their sets for Teriyaki Sauce Tofu Steak Brown Rice and Wholemeal Noodles with Almond Sauce attracted our order.
The Teriyaki sauce was kind of too overwhelming and salty that affected our appreciation of the tofu steak but goes well with the plain brown rice and the fresh vegetables with the red ginger slices saved the dish.
C finds the almond sauce salty to her taste but we will still likely return to try other popular dishes such as its Vietnamese roll that looked healthy and nice which in consideration that we may not be able to finish the meal sets, decided to leave it for next visit.
It is definitely a good option for Vegetarians working around the area as I even bumped into 2 friends working around the area unexpectedly who commented they are regular patrons and liked the food there.:-O

Econ Vegetarian Food


Located at Food Loft, a coffee-shop near the junction traffic light opposite Aljunied MRT, Econ Vegetarian locates at the centre with a bright eye-catching signboard.
Missing western food, I was there with much expectation. I ordered a set meal for Black-pepper sauced chop that came with mushroom soup and a mango pudding dessert. The presentation was nice and considerate with delivery of bottles of pepper, tomato and chilli sauce as well. However, I was kind of disappointed with the patty which tasted just like those common instant frozen products but I liked their accompanying fresh salad and appetising coleslaw. I would recommend their Black-pepper sauced Spaghettis instead. The Spaghettis was well-done and smooth and the accompanying black pepper sauce was well-mixed. The sauce came with a mild spiciness initially that gets stronger as it reaches your stomach so it is appetising for a spicy lover but be prepared to drink lots of water for the after-effect and again I like their accompanying salad! :P
For non spicy lover, you may try their tomato-sauced version which I saw a patron ordered which looked nice in presentation too. Perhaps I will return to try that next time. :-)

 The stall is available from 11am-8pm daily except Tuesday.

Loving Heart Cafe

Returning to try more dishes, too many choices from their menu so seeing a lot of patrons ordered their Fish Soup Meehoon which looked good, I followed suit. Well-fried mock fish with hugh piece of seaweed and the addition of a preserved plum for the light flavoured soup made it a good dish to try.  
Their Laksa comes with thick gravy that is spicy and sinful and gives one the impression if sip too much of it may cause bad stomach-ache later (due to the heatiness from the spiciness) and Yet one would still risk taking it. Only setback is it did not come sizzling hot and the meehoon had not fully absorb the gravy or else it will be real robust.

Located at Blk134, Geylang East Ave1, #01-219, same HDB block as Kwan inn Vegetarian Food.

Ahmed Khan Restaurant

Located at coffeeshop beside Komala, opposite Farrer Park MRT exit A, C recommended the chapati at this last stall nearest to the drink counter at the shop that sells vegetarian dishes as well previously introduced to her by her Indian friend.
Freshly made naan (top left) , chapati (right bottom) of 2nd picture and Tandoori Roti (semi-circle) at $1 per piece with dishes of spinach gravy with bean curds (smooth) and dish of cauliflower with green peas (nice) at $2 each. Good texture chewy naan (softer vs chapati) and chapati (more chewy) prompted us to try their Tandoori Roti which the texture is similar as naan but much crispier. Good Try, strongly recommend!
Not sure if the roti comes in cutted half pieces or the friendly owner is very considerate to help us cut it in half for us to share for our 2nd order. We like the dishes too, in good portion and according to the owner, most of his vegetarian dishes (about 6 to choose from) are without onion and garlic which I am glad to enjoy but do ask in advance which are the ones before you order if you do not take onion & garlic as well.
The stall opens daily around 11am-11pm.
