Graces Court Vegetarian

Had a recent visit to Graces Court Vegetarian, one of the pioneer vegetarian restaurants in Singapore.  

Love their Laksa, and soup of the day~ authentic Black bean soup!

Their spicy dishes such as Sambal KangKong & Brinjal were dishes not to miss ordering for spicy lovers!

Love their Sweet & Sour Fish & Prawn balls! Well fried, crispy & fantastic sauce that enhances one's appetite.
Oh their Wolfberry vegetable soup was also a surprise to taste so refreshing.
And their White Fungus dessert so full of ingredients and tasty to end the meal with.
Located at 12 Queen Street, Hotel Royal @ Queens #02-03, their Ala Carte Lunch buffet at S$16.50 nett during weekdays and S$17.60 nett during weekend, Lunar 1st & 15th & Public Holidays is definitely value for $.
Service and ambience was good too for a gathering.
It is advisable to make reservation for weekends.

Opens daily from 11:30am – 2:30pm, 5:30pm – 9:30pm
Contact: 6238 5085

素满园 (Kopitiam at Plaza Singapura)

Sometimes Simplicity is the best.
Over the counter economical rice dishes ~ fresh green Kailan and mushroom...
And a bowl of hot soup to accompany the rice is heaven for a rush dinner. :-)

Tian Yuan Vegetarian

Love  this from Tian Yuan too!
Nice Vegetarian Fish Mee Hoon Soup with good grinded ginger juice taste with fried beancurb skin mock fish pieces, ikan bilis and big yam pieces! The strong ginger soup is a Perfect remedy soup for warming one's stomach.

This Vegetarian Supply Shop - Tian Yuan is hidden at level 2 (#02-23) of Fortune centre, right on 2nd stretch of shops up from the escalator. It takes a bit of effort to look for it but luckily it has a bright sign.

健康斋素食 Vegetarian Food, Hong Lim Complex Food centre

This stall won the vote of M who will make an effort to buy their Rojak whenever  she is around Hong Lim complex. But the rojak is really worth trying without peanuts by default, and with good portion of fruits and crispy fritters. The sauce used is excellent, being refreshing and appetizing! It is  available generally only after 12.30pm.
The stall is at #01-49 (facing the market) of Hong Lim Complex Food centre. It is closed on Sundays.

A9S Heliren 和利仁

Another new Healthy Vegetarian choice at Raffles Place!
A friend introduced this vegetarian salad fruit juice bar, A9S, in The Arcade, Raffles place which opened barely a month ago. With the vision and mission of promoting vegetarian diet to the working people there, their price is very reasonable, considering the high cost of fresh ingredients and high rental in the CBD area.

They have S$5.90 set salad with 5 standard toppings. Each set caters for specific intent, e.g., Fiber Salad for a smoother stomach to pass motion, Detox Salad for 'over-eating of unhealthy stuff', Zoom Salad for energising oneself with more protein and calcium intake, Fruity-Nutty Salad is lighter for 'dessert' and 'social' meals.
Alternatively, one may have own choice of 6 toppings out of the 36 selections at $7.90.
The friendly staff will be there to advise their various home-made dressings  (was told there is choice of sweet & sour and even of spicy taste!) to match with the chosen salad.

For thick soup lovers, I would strongly recommend trying their home made Soup of the day! Currently they only serve mushroom or broccoli soup for a start and was told they were popular and sold out fast daily.
It was Mushroom soup for day of visit and I was pleasantly surprised with the thick broth of the mushroom soup especially when I was told it was cream-free. At $3.50 or $3 with order of salad, it is certainly worth the price.
With the big bowl of salad and soup, it is certainly a healthy nutritious filling meal. 

A good choice for the stomach to get started for the week, especially after partying over the weekend or when one feels that a healthy meal is to be consumed. 

Out of curiosity as the name of the shop does not sound like one for a salad bar business, I managed to understand from the boss its origin.
We were impressed with his interesting explanation!
By breaking up the third Chinese character "Ren" (仁), it signifies 2 persons which represents the business is the combined effort of him & his wife mutually supporting each other.
By breaking up the 2nd character "Li" (利 ), it signifies a platform (刂 ) for serving plant food (禾).
By breaking up the 1st character "He" (和), it signifies eating plant food.
So in combination it is a husband & wife business providing a platform for serving plant based food for all to taste.
And 'A9S' simply stands for "Always Nice'...

A9S is located at #01-04 near rear of The Arcade, right turn after florist. 
Opens from 8am-5pm Monday to Friday.

Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food 观音斋

Besides their famous Laksa,  Kwan Inn Vegetarian Food has other nice dishes such as this Spinach noodles tried. Though it did not look presentable with much ingredients,  the noodles serving was Hugh and QQ springy with nice gravy that won my heart. Will definitely return when I have cravings for good dry noodles. :-)

It is located at corner coffee shop at Blk134 Geylang East Ave1, 2nd bus stop from Aljunied Mrt. Opposite Tan Swie Hian Museum.

Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant

This is the Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant located opposite OG Albert at Bugis Area.
It is well renovated compared to its other outlets. We tried their Stir-fry Hor Fun and was pleasantly  surprised with the wok feel taste available.
The salad sushi was also fresh, tasty and crunchy. The better ambience and service compared to its other outlets made our dining there an enjoyable experience so even though its price may be slightly higher compared to its other outlets, it is still worthwhile. :-)
