Cheng Beng Buddhist Society ~ Ci Su Xuan

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...
Due to redevelopment plans, they had revised their meal serving hours: 
Dinner on Mon-Sat:  5-7.30pm
Breakfast on Sun: 8-9.30am
Lunch on Sun: 12-2pm

Yesterday(Sunday) I went there for Lunch at 12 noon,and I found out that for Sun,it is Free, give whatever you wish or otherwise.

But it is pretty crowded even thought Buffet just started.Mind you the prayer session on the 2nd floor haven't ended yet.Staff are there to portion out the food,unlike weekdays when you help yourself.

But they set up more tables and chairs,even then I anticipate it will be chaotic when the prayer session ended and the devotees choose to try the Buffet.
