Rice House 粥大王

Looking for soupy dishes around Aljunied area made me recall the Rice House that I had not visited for ages.
Arriving there, a new impressive Hugh menu appeared that spoiled us with choices. Finally decided on their Energy Mushroom Soup Noodles.
Well, the mushrooms are few (dry mushrooms soaked and don't look energised :-p) but compensated  by many other ingredients. I believe the energy refers to the soup of herbal taste. It is of reasonable mild herbal taste, I like it! Finished the bowl of soup which went well with sliced chilli as advised by S. :-)
And their portion also improved from last visit. Will likely return to try their other appetizing looking curry and popular dishes.
Oh, the same owners opened a Vegetarian Mama Shop just beside Rice House.
Good variety of vegetarian supplies neatly arranged. Cool!

The Rice House is located at Blk 129 Geylang East ave 1, beside Foo Hai Chan Monastery & Opposite Sims Ville Condo. May alight at 2nd bus stop from Aljunied MRT & walk further up & turn left to Monastery direction.

Eastern Vegetarian Food

Was at Novena area during lunch hours and recalling there is a cafeteria open to public at Level 2 of Revenue House, I tried my luck and was glad I made the right try. There is a vegetarian stall in it. :-)
It sells economical rice dishes and a few common stir-fry dishes like Hor Fun and Hokkien Mee,  etc.
Prefering some hot dishes, I ordered the Hor Fun.
Hmm, gravy is starchy type and ingredients reasonably nice though there needs more improvements in its Stir fry skills for the white noodles. :-p.
Still glad though, to have additional vegetarian choice in this area. :-)

八仙素食 (Koufu - Toa Payoh central)

Visited Toa Payoh central and could not resist going back to ordering this Vegetarian Ngian Toufu. Today's soup has a heavier herbal taste, making it even more palatable. :-))

Eight Immortals,  Toa Payoh Central level 2 Koufu Food court...

Vegetarian Indian Cuisine

A new Vegetarian Indian Cuisine stall opened at Tiong Bahru market food centre, making it the 3rd Vegetarian  stall at the food centre. From the name,  I was expecting prata but it was not in sight on day of visit or its menu signboard.
I saw Nasi Briyani, Rojak Noodles, Mutton Soup, Mee Goreng, Fried Mee Hoon and Fried Rice on display. They have curry puff too.
It is a welcome change from the traditional vegetarian standard mee hoon stall so I decided to try their Rojak Mee which resembles mee rebus in the gravy with yellow noodles, accompanied by fried bean curd slices and fried vegetable fritters.
Taste wise so so but I do like their Nasi Briyani which I packed home for lunch.
The yellow flavoured rice was soft and  tasty with nice curry mutton and crispy papadum.
Their curry puff skin is a bit thick in my opinion but the ingredients of potatoes is quite nice.
I would likely return to try their mutton soup which the owner recommended saying it is very nice and added it is vegetarian.: -)
The stall is managed by a Chinese couple hence their cooking style of Indian food is more towards Chinese taste rather than authentic Indian taste.

It is located at level 2 of Tiong Bahru market level 2 food centre, at straight far rear end corner from the escalator. Just 2 stalls away from the popular long queue vegetarian white mee hoon stall, Ruyi Vegetarian.
