Food For Life

Feeling a little hungry on way but still  an hour to dinner,  decided to have some snacks and there at Food For Life 's menu showed an appetizing Pumpkin soup at only $2.50. Much healthier than any snacks, I decided to try.
I was even more surprised it was not scooped from already cooked big pot  but freshly made on spot.  I saw a good demo on how easy the soup could be prepared!  A few big pieces of steamed pumpkin slices and a small potato with a pitch of salt? and a ladle of vegetable soup put into blender to blend and a nice bowl of pumpkin soup is ready with garnish of white and black sesame seeds and parsley.
Yummy! Tasty and healthy, certainly worth the price!

Food For Life is situated At Bishan cafeteria, just on 2nd level above Bishan Bus Interchange. One could easily spot it at traffic light at Junction 8 crossing over to bus interchange.

The most value for money vegetarian meal around Aljunied MRT area is $2 Buffet economical rice at the Dining Hall of Cheng Beng Buddhist Society ~ Ci Su Xuan, at 20 Lorong 27A Geylang, S'pore 388112. One just needs to buy a meal coupon at the Reception or Cashier behind the right door of level 1 of the building.  Then show the coupon to the uncle behind the Wei Mo Hall pane where a buffet table is revealed. One will be given a plate in exchange for the coupon.

If one is lucky, they may serve Vegetarian Chicken Rice/Duck rice (yam rice)/Nasi Briyani instead of plain rice. Usually there will be a Curry dish, 2 vegetables,  a fried item, fruits and a bowl of soup. For the fried item or what may be deemed as special dish, they will indicate that only 1 piece is allowed. Though one is free to scoop big or small portions for other dishes, this Buffet is only restricted to 1 plate or 1 time.
Then one move on to the Dining Hall at side and to clear one's plate/bowl/cutlery at a pantry after one's meal. It is popular among the vegetarians visiting or working around the area. Gratitude for the Daily nice heartily food at $2...

Food For Life

New vegetarian stall at Food court above Bishan Bus Interchange.
Thunder Tea Rice on its Daily menu. The cubes of vegetables, mushroom and bean curds were nicely cooked and cut. Crunchy pickles and the Thunder tea soup made it an authentic dish. It would be even better if more and thicker version of soup given. But generally quite nice and right portion for me.
It also has vegetarian Rojak,  perhaps another time....

Yuan Wei Quan Vegetarian (YWQ)

Long queue during lunch hours. Being only vegetarian stall left of the food courts around HDB Hub with Koufu on 2nd level under renovation and the other vegetarian stall at Forks & Spoons closed down.
Vegetarian Fish soup was on its daily special menu at price of $3.80. Still tasted as nice but wished they could be more generous with the soup.
An enjoyable meal though ...

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.

园香素食 Yuan Xiang Vegetarian

Finally had a chance to visit Boon Keng area again and decided to try Yuan Xiang.
Had not had Tom Yam for ages, hence that's the order !
Right Spicy & Sourness ! Good Tom Yam soup that was really appetising!
At $4, though the portion of Mee hoon and other accompanying ingredients were small in my opinion, the soup made up for it. So now I know where to go when I have craving for nice Tom Yam Soup...

It is located at coffee-shop opposite 29 Bendemeer Road (Bendemeer market), near Exit B of Boon Keng MRT.
