Simply delightful!

At Sufood again enjoying an incredibly healthy and scrumptious meal with a group of lovely retreatants that I met in Plum Village (Thailand), 2016. It’s a surprise that I felt so relax and peacefully dinning with these ladies whom I hardly contact after the retreat. Guess, each of them has a beautiful heart and naturally emits a loving, uplifting and peaceful energy around them.

Dinning with lovely people plus adding a little dose of mindfulness in eating, the Vegetable Chowder with Edamame ($6.8++) and Roasted Sweet Potato with Corn & Macadamia Salad ($7.8++) - simply delicious. Never know that I can feel so satisfied with my salad! Simply delightful!

Al Fungi Sandwich serves in disposable container !!! …

I love the vibe at AP House Speciality (HQ) at Asia Square Tower 2 and also the vegetarian option on their menu - Al Fungi Sandwich @ S$11.9! A vegetarian friendly eatery.


I’m dinning there, why is my food in disposable container? Hmmm…. not so environmental friendly and not so presentable.

Vegetarian Thai Cuisine @ Absolute Thai ...

COOL! I LIKE it! A vegetarian menu. That's the way to go. Be a Vegetarian friendly restaurant. Nice to see such a big vegetarian menu and it led me to change our lunch date venue with my colleagues to Absolute Thai.

Ordered the Vegetarian Pad Thai ($12.9++) and it is delicious. I love their Thai Tapioca with coconut milk, simply soft and delicious. Red ruby ($3.9++) is my favourite’s dessert but I do not really like too much crashed ice (too hard). Such a vegetarian friendly restaurant, I'm thinking of going again and to taste their Vegetarian Green Curry on my next visit.

Feeding everyone different food desire @ Blue Lotus ....



Sundown. It’s dinner time! Let’s head to Sentosa Cove, Blue Lotus can feed everyone different food desire – The Herbivore, The Carnivore and The Carnivore that say No to Seafood!

To some restaurants with creativity and flexibility, no sweat! It’s easy to convert some of the dishes on the menu to a vegetarian cuisine or vegetable forward cuisine.

We’ve ordered some vegetarian dishes for Vegetarian and to share among the team. It is a beautiful act, a concerted effort creating an Inclusive culture and climate which values diversity in different forms. Lovely!
Human nature, I often have high expectation of the high end and good restaurants to at least have few great vegetarian dishes on their menu. The spicy tofu is delectable and fried rice tastes good. The greens and claypot tofu I would think could be made more interesting.

What’s their secret?

Grove is a go-to for a good one bowl meal! Dry Truffle Noodle (S$8.8), simple awesome! What’s their secret? Is it the noodle? Is it the truffle oil? Is it …? The best way to find out would probably be taste it, enjoy it. 


Dry Kung Pao Noodle (S$6.8), is one of my favourites.  So beautiful and delicious! Simple lunch yet feel great.

I’m a vegetarian, what can I order?

Handmade Ricotta Cavatelli (S$28++) 
Coriander rocket pesto, cashew nuts, pecorino cheese, roasted pumpkin, yellow zucchini

Team lunch at Cook & Brew. Here again, dining at level 33 with a lovely sea view.

I’m a vegetarian, what can I order? There aren’t much vegetarian options available, so I ordered the Handmade Ricotta Cavatelli (S$28++) again and Shoe String Fries (S$6++).   The presentation of this dish - Ricotta Cavatelli was so much better than what I had in April.  Taste wise – delectable!   Love the Shoe String Fries a lot, I can’t stop eating it.

My wonderful bosses ordered some vegetarian friendly starter dishes for all to share – Roasted Broccoli (S$14++) and Burrata (S$21++).  Interesting presentation. Such a fun and delicious team lunch.

It would be much more fantastic if Cook & Brew could has more vegetable forward cuisine dishes on their menu which mean more vegetarian choices.

Delicious KOKO Thai Ice Cream!


This wonderful delicious KOKO Thai Ice Cream was the result of ripening of our instant karma. 

A beautiful and rewarding experience for us to remember. Just 1-2 hours ago, we both added a little dose of generosity and gratitude to this universe. Surprisingly! We’re both rewarded indirectly with this free ice cream and it’s extremely soft, yummy and refreshing with real coconut fresh! Love it! Simple pleasures and happiness in life!

So, when there’s a chance to do good, go for it. You can really add positiveness to our World. One day, good things will just come back in different forms. You never know … [smile][gratitude]

Mummy Yummy @ Shenton House with a beautiful cause ...

In this world, there are many amazing vegetarian restaurateurs and owners who operate vegetarian eateries not for profit but for the continuality of this beautiful cuisine and for a good cause. I salute them for their hard work, dedication and the losses they bear in such ventures.

I chanced upon Mummy Yummy in April 2017, hidden in Shenton House level 2 with other eateries where the nearby office workers go for cheap lunch options.  Just like other eateries here, Mummy Yummy doesn’t have fancy décor nor special menus. It serves basic traditional Vegetarian Bee Hoon, Olive Fried Rice, Chicken Rice and Curry Rice, selling at a very cheap price.  

Today, I’ve had my breakfast - Vegetarian Bee Hoon with Curry Potato @ $1.5 and for lunch - Curry Rice with more Curry @ $1.5.  
Also, they cook and deliver free vegetarian food to the needy in Singapore. For S$1, you can sponsor a free meal for the needy and help out in this wonderful cause.  I put some cash into their donation box for this beautiful cause.

OMG! Is sugar cane flower!

[Throwback 4 September 2017] 
4 years ago, I lured her to Fo You Yuan Vegetarian Restaurant as she hasn't tasted sugar cane flower before. We're lucky to see this unusual sugar cane flower dish available on their menu, as this's seasonal dish and very rare that eateries serving this. How does sugar cane flower taste like? Shh…. A secret.
Not sure how she got it, she gave me some sugar cane flower few days back. For lunch today, I experiment cooking these sugar cane flower first time with what I can find in my kitchen!

For a good bowl of vegetarian soupy noodle …

Needed a soupy noodle fix! I was delighted that Vegetarian Cuisine @ NTUC Foodfare located in Clifford Centre (Raffles Place), serves Mee Tai Mak with Vegetarian Fish Ball @ S$4.5 on Thursday, besides the normal economical rice.  

Mee Tai Mak paired well with bean sprout and lettuce. I’m glad the Bean sprout in this noodle is fresh and crunchy.  Mee Tai Mak is rather unique in this part of the world and it reminds me of a rare dish which I had in Malaysia as a child - Claypot Crabmeat Mee Tai Mak and the gravy in it was rather similar to light-coloured Hor Fun gravy, which I yet to find it on the menu of any vegetarian eateries.

For healthy diner, just order one serving of vegetable dish. This stall has a long queue and I guess for a good reason ….

@ Palm Beach Seafood – Vegetarian Menu, please?

What business does a vegetarian have at Palm Beach Seafood? It is a Team Lunch where 3 out of 8 members are vegetarians!  We asked if they had a vegetarian menu - they said no.  A little disappointed.  


Anyway, we requested the tofu, vegetable, fried noodle and fried rice dishes to be cooked in vegetarian friendly way and for sharing. The Braised Tofu with Gingko Nuts and Green, Green Asparagus with Shimeji Mushroom and Fried Noodle were surprisingly delicious. The Vegetarian Fried Rice was a little too dry and hard, and I believe this dish can be cooked more creatively with better plant-based ingredients.
In this era, it is very common for people who are vegetarian or have special dietary requirements dine together with other non-vegetarians. We often pick places that cater to our needs and offer alternative choices like creative vegetarian menus.

龙门斋的马来炒面

龙门斋这店名不知为什么就是很容易让我连想到龙门客栈。也许武侠小说看多了吧,或许二十多年前,好像也有家龙门客栈素餐馆在牛车水。今晚去牛车水,路过龙门斋,就向店小二要碟斋马来炒面(Mee Goreng S$4), 出乎料之外超好吃的。很少见到素餐馆用那种的素廋肉炒面,合我的胃口。 印度炒米粉 Indian Bee Hoon Goreng,或是干炒 Dry Mee Siam ,这两道小吃,就比较难找到斋的,如果有就太好了。

老板和店小二挺会招呼客人,很热情的对我说有热汤,自己去盛一碗来喝吧。那我就不客气了,汤是很热,我喜欢热腾腾的汤,里头料也很多也美味。

好的,下回,会再来尝尝些别的。

'You are what you eat' & 'I realised I was nuts!'

Saw this poster in Jhana Grove. At a glance, it could mean - "eat good food in order to be healthy and fit".

I guess, in a deeper sense, in cultivating good health both physical and mentally, plus happiness, pay attend to things we consume like edible foods as well as be mindful of those products indirectly contains toxins such as certain websites, films, TV programs, magazines, books, conversations etc ...'

A new breed of vegetarian restauranteurs …

With a new breed of vegetarian restaurateurs these days, here is what you get – wholesome and nutritious delicious dishes with a creative twist.

I like this dish at GreenDot - Stir-fry Brocooli with Creamy Pumpkin Puree ($5.9). It uses pumpkin which is a good source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and also lends a naturally sweet flavour and beautiful yellow colour to the dish. If pine nuts or almond slice or cashew nuts are added, it would lend this dish extra crunch!

Those lovely green bunch of florets (brocooli) has a taste of “wok hei”, Oishii!  It’s high in fibre, iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin Bs and C plus beta-carotene.

With so much goodness in this dish, what are you waiting for?

A new genre of modern, causal, wholesome Vegetarian Cuisine at Greendot ...

Life is great, isn’t it? Doing things that we love:  tasting the creatively crafted brand-new dishes at Greendot (exclusively at Vivocity and Paya Lebar). Great to know that Greendot focuses on using wholesome ingredients to offer a nutritious vibrant home-cooked dishes that ANYONE can go for good hearty meal.
Sweet & Sour Crispy Nuggets ($7.9)
Herbal Lion’s Mane Mushroom ($7.9)
A well-loved popular classic is the Sweet & Sour Crispy Nuggets ($7.9). It’s hard not to love this. If it is the Lion’s Mane Mushroom that you are after, don’t miss the Herbal Lion’s Mane Mushroom ($7.9), which pairs well with fragrant sesame rice (tasted like chicken rice) or brown rice.  

 Golden Mango Yogurt Konnyaku ($7.9)
Another new addition to the menu is the Golden Mango Yogurt Konnyaku ($7.9). It is coated with batter and deep fried - it goes well eaten alone or with the tasty tangy mango-yogurt sauce.

All these dishes are affordable. The menu comprises of dishes intended to be shared among friends. The small serving is perfect for single diners or for sharing (2-3 pax) which allow the sampling of more dishes. If you like a particular dish, just get another plate.

For drink, try this - I call it the “one glass is never enough” addictive Osthmanthus Jelly with wolfberries drink. 

Are you hungry already? Head over to Greendot then!

Drinking Tea @ Jhana Grove Meditation Centre

In retreat, I think it’s good to have some calming tea available, letting retreatant feel relax and settle into the environment fast or able to have better sleep at night, then able to meditate.  I remembered in those Executive Retreats, often, special afternoon tea served by the hotel are pandan, lemon grass, blue pea, roselle … (w/wo sugar)

In Jhana Grove, I often made a cup of coffee in the morning and a cup of tea in the afternoon. Then, simply sat down, leaning this – “When there’s nothing to do, then do nothing. When there is something to do, give it 100%”.

Some kind soul left different type of ginger and chamomile tea bags there – chamomile and peppermint, chamomile with honey, chamomile with vanilla, peppermint, ginger with honey, ginger …

Sitting down and enjoy it. A way to learn how to relax and give the body the rest it needed. Not rushing and reacting to every single thoughts that come to mind …
