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.
