Vegetarian Food @ Suntec...

Stopped by at Suntec for a quick dinner before going to the Concert at Esplanade last evening. So, where to find Vegetarian food at that hour on a Friday evening at Suntec?

There is a vegetarian stall at Food Republic, but I don’t feel like having Zi Char.  Heard that there is also vegetarian food at the Kopitiam (East Wing), which I yet to explore.  I tried to check up Tuk Tuk Cha & Love Mee whether they serves any vegetarian option, but they don’t.  So, I ended up ordering Masala Dosa $4.2 at Saravanaa Bhavan @ Food Republic (West Wing). 

Enjoyed my meal, it was delicious and I like Masala Dosa.

My new recipe: Hearty Pumpkin Soup


Cooking is a form of Art, Meditation and Therapy which nourishes the body and soul.  Taking my time to discover the wonder of ‘No Rules Cooking’. Totally no rules. Hence create the space for fresh thoughts and new perspectives to flow naturally. 

No precise measurement of each ingredients. Touch, play and feel the ingredients, you will know it by gut feeling how much to use and what to put together.  I decide to use pumpkin, carrot, sweet potato and potato. Then lovingly put them in a pot with water and boil till tender. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour back to the pot to boil and add water to get the creamy soup texture I desired. Then, sprinkle a dash of Himalayas Rock Salt.  That’s.

I know it will work out and have that trust in the process and ourselves.  I’m happy with the outcome - a delicious bowl of natural and hearty pumpkin soup for lunch!

我的沙拉和面包早餐


我很少为自己好好的做早餐。昨日,我决定疼爱自己,做个沙拉和面包早餐给自己。禅修回来后,不必忙着工作,创意和灵感都回来了。
享受那分平静和轻松感,发现许多事都变更容易,也得心应手,理解能力也提高了。也不知道怎么办到,许多无形的枷锁都自然解开了。很简单的,创意就自然来了,连已经生疏的 food photography “技巧也回来,随手乱拍的照片也可以好看。 我的新食谱就这样诞生了。

没工作也能这样开心,对于未来我充满着信心。感恩

Dessert @ Good Old Days


Beautiful Summer Weather! Sandy Beach and Blue Sky.  Soaking in the sunshine, invigorating body and soul at the Siloso Beach, Sentosa.  I went to Good Old Days after that looking for some vegetarian food. 

As there wasn’t much vegetarian option available, I ordered cold dessert - Chendol @ $3.5+.  A lovely and cosy eatery.

In the space of relaxation …


Relax and everything become easy. I used to be able to create recipe and snap nice food photo without much preparation 8 yrs ago. I lost that special touch. After the recent retreat, that ability came back again.

With a green mango, using whatever ingredients in the kitchen. I created this Green Mango Salad with Mango Salad Sauce. Looking at it, what I see was beautiful. I snapped a picture. Happiness is here and now.

Vegetarian Food @ Phuket Marriott Hotel


Was attending a Meditation Retreat at Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa, Merlin Beach. A beautiful clean beach resort with a lovely good beach.

The western vegetarian buffet dishes served in the Merchant Kitchen were delicious and I like it.  But for asian vegetarian buffet dishes, in my own opinion, there are still rooms for improvement and creativity.   

There were many raw ingredients, with some creativity, it could easily churned out delicious vegetarian dish without much hassle.  In doing, it created a more variety vegetarian spread. 

The restaurant could also spur vegetarian diner to have some fun creating their own vegetarian dish by putting DIY Suggestion Tag (Jasmine Rice + daily creamy soup). In doing so, lesser work for the kitchen. It also making vegetarian feel more welcome and come back again to enjoy the resort and also the food.

There was a noodle station allow the diners to “make your own” soupy noodle. But there wasn’t a vegetarian soup base. I guess, with some hot water/milk and simple seasoning, a simple vegetarian soup base can be achieved.  It could also make use of the tom yum soup, miso soup, green curry or daily creamy soup if it is vegetarian.  

Creating a vegetarian dry noodle version if there were good sauces (soya sauce, sesame oil, tomatoes sauce) available.

As vegetarian don’t consume fish balls etc, it can be easily substitute with the different vegetable from the salad bar or roasted egg-plant/carrot/pepper chilli.  

So with the Vegetarian population growing and they do travel a lot but are also looking for good vegetarian food.  So,  … [smile]

Reindeer Soba (Veg)!

Take away:  Reindeer!

Vegetarian food can be simple, healthy and delicious.  Another vegetarian friendly eatery at Food Garden located at Asia Square Tower 1 - Wheat Baumkuchen!  Lovely to see their creativity also in the area of whipping up delicious vegetarian food.

This soba has an interesting name – Reindeer! Combination of Edamame, Shimeji Mushroom, Carrot, Wakame and quite delicious. I wonder how it would be like if in hot soupy broth.  

This soba inspired me and my mind started forming different kind of combination …

Searching for eateries that serve Vegetarian option …


Was at Food Garden at Asia Square and searching for vegetarian option for lunch. 

Glad to find another vegetarian friendly eatery, 180º Rotisserie. They serve Cold Spicy Ma La (Veg) @ $7.9. It was a rainy day, I prefer to have hot food. When I requested for a hot version of this Cold Spicy Ma La, they made hot for me. Appreciate it and love eateries that are truly vegetarian friendly.

Delicious food entice just anyone and vegetarian cuisine can be easily attainable in this sense. For this dish, Cold Spicy Ma La is just Angel Hair with Mushroom and Ma La Sauce – simple!

New Look – Revitalised Feel @ Whole Earth

Simply too lazy to cook dinner tonight.  Go with the flow and an impromptus decision - I head to Whole Earth this evening for a quick dinner.

Surprisingly delicious Banquet Vegetarian Cuisine.

Attended the Vesak Day Celebration Dinner at Bukit Batok St 31 Hard Court yesterday and was surprised by the delicious vegetarian banquet prepared by Supreme Vege Pte Ltd.


Cold Combination
Usually, the quality and standard of the cuisine can be difficult to control due to the location and also the huge quantity.  I must applauded that Supreme Vege did a great job in serving delicious dishes. Most of the dishes were to my liking and the presentation was simple yet beautiful.   If the portion could be bigger, that will be even better. 



Steamed Mock Ball with Chinese Herbs (on my plate)
Braise Ee-Noodle (on my plate)

Guess, I will visit their restaurant at Hotel Royal @ Queen.

Discovering the beauty in Vegetarian Cuisine ...

Simply loves the revamped menu @ GroVe. We ordered the Laksa Sayang Hey! @ $9.8, Mushroom Pesto Pasta @ $9.8 and Truffle Fries @ $6.8.

In term of presentation, it looks great and appetising.  This uniquely combination - Laksa with Ramen, is delicious, I like the texture and taste of the broth.  The Mushroom Pesto Pasta is what I would like to order again on my next visit. It’s so much better than those serves in the fast casual restaurant chain. Good to have another option to go to now.   


Lately, having some craving for fries, so the Truffles fries is just perfect.

Vegetarian Ricotta Cavatelli!


Great that there's vegetarian option on Cook and Brew's menu. Ordered the 2-course Executive Lunch Set @ S$35++, they served my Pumpkin Soup without Bacon and the Handmade Ricotta Cavatelli, which is suitable for Vegetarian.



The Pumpkin soup was a little too salty for me. As for the Ricotta Cavatelli the different ingredients mixing together gives a delectable unique taste.

A sense of spaciousness in the restaurant and with beautiful sea view overlooking the Marina South Pier.

Taste of Indian Vegetarian Cuisine @ Shree Ganga(Lau Pa Sat)


I love Masala Dosai and decided to order this on Shree Gangal’s menu.  There are few vegetarian stall sat Lau Pa Sat and it is great to have a wider choice. The Masala Dosa which I ordered was simply delicious and I love the potatoes in it. I wonder if I can simply request to up size the potatoes

Where: Shree Ganga @ Lau Pa Sat. Stall no. 40, 18 Raffles Quay, Singapore 048582.

Ippudo @ Food Garden

The vegetarian gourmet scene is seeing new freshness.

Nowadays, the vegetarian population is increasing and also many meat eater would enjoy a vegetarian cuisine for a change. Love to see eateries are more vegetarian friendly now which make dinning with meat-eaters or vegetarian friends/colleagues with a much wider choice.  

I chanced upon Ippudo Express offering a vegetarian option on their menu, it was a surprise.  So far, I haven’t really come across vegetarian eateries that serves good ramen yet. So, I ordered a bowl of Veggie Consomme @ S$11.  

Tasty and flavourful Ramen!  I would think if this Ramen has some crispy seaweed added to it would be even better. I will ask for softer ramen when I ordered next time. And it would be great if there are more vegetarian option here.

My new drink - Pumpkin with Gula Malacca!


I bought half a pumpkin for still life drawing 1-2 weeks ago. Impermanence, my plan and schedule totally changed, didn’t have the time + mood to draw.
The perishable pumpkin can’t wait. So today I used it to create a simple new drink - Pumpkin with Gula Melaka and Coconut Milk!
Rather similar to the Eggless Pumpkin Kaya and Pumpkin with Ginkgo Dessert recipes which I improvised in 2009.

Afternoon Coffee by the Singapore River …


Stop in to ACM. Joined a free guided tour to explore Buddhist Sculpture in 3rd /4th Century, picked up new forms with local ideas borrowed. Also Tang Shipwreck Exhibit, discovered in 1998 after 1100 yrs. Interesting!

What’s next? It’s time for tea! Head to Prive ACM to eat, drink and relax at Alfresco area, looking at Singapore River view and CBD skyline. Life's good, enjoyed 50% off sliced cake (suitable for Lacto-Ovo-Vegetarian) with a coffee ordered on weekday 3-6pm! Final bill is S$8.20. Service is good. The Kopi-C is a little blend, otherwise it is great. If there are more vegetarian/vegan option, it would be fantastic. 

The realisation – Human do not know a lot of things! The world is so vast, our knowledge and understanding are so limited. History is always in progress of re-writing. Even we ourselves, Do we know ourselves? Not really. Hmmm ..., time to start the self-discovery journey! 

Where to find Vegetarian Food @ Malaysia Food Street Resort World Singapore …

Being a Vegetarian or Vegan, if you are given a meal voucher to be used in any restaurants in S.E.A Aquarium/Adventure Cove Water Park and Malaysia Food Street, basically you haven’t got much choice.  

First of all, there isn’t clear any indication where to find vegetarian/vegan food.  Either do I want to waste time queue up and only to discover that the stall cannot “customise” a vegetarian version for me. 

It was a relief to see Roti Canai & Nasi Briyani serves Vegetarian Biryani Rice Set @ S$6.5, it’s delicious but the curry is very spicy even for me who loves chilli padi.  

For those who can’t take spicy food, you may want to try other vegetarian friendly eateries or restaurants in the premises.

A new dinning experience for Non-Vegetarian!

Indulged our taste buds at one of the best vegetarian fine dining restaurants in Singapore.  It is a perfect place for meat-eater friends to treat their vegetarian/vegan friend a good meal!

My meat-eater friends are simply impressed and all of them love the Wild Mushroom and White Truffle Pizza @ S$15.80++ or S$23.80++ (5-course set menu) and find the 5-course set very refreshing.

Go drink Coffee!

A cuppa of traditional coffee and pumpkin kaya toast at this beautiful cosy Owl Café located in the National Gallery.  I love the quietness and the ambience.  A little rest place for me after completing the free docent-led guided tour in the gallery. 

Simple pleasure and happiness can be found in life, if we chose happiness and be open to it in all different forms.  

It didn’t cost much, just S$5.20 for the set meal and I can use the receipt to redeem 2 admission tickets (S$15/ticket) to the Artist And Empire (En)countering Colonial Legacies (end 26 Mar 17). 

If there are more vegetarian or vegan option, I love to come back again and again.

A vegetarian café that looked good!


Having such lovely café all around the places in Singapore and served delicious vegetarian food really make going vegetarian so easy.  Nowadays, more and more non-vegetarians are attracted to vegetarian food.

As a vegetarian, I like the food served here. This is my second time visiting the outlet at The Aperia.  Service is good and the menu is good.  As a soup lover, I love to order soup – Lotus Soup as usual.  The fried rice is tasty too.

This place was recommended by my non-vegetarian boss who had dined there few times before and thought the dishes served are delectable. 

So, she brought me there and indeed the food served was delicious and the price reasonable. We ordered a vegetable dish, mushroom dish and a soup to go with rice. A simple good tasty meal.    

A vegetarian café hidden in the old HDB housing estate and I was surprised to see that there were many dinning there.  If it isn’t too far from my place, I definitely would go often.

一碗素肉骨茶汤!


没肉的肉骨茶好吃吗?是肉骨茶吗? 一直认为一定要有肉,其实不然。

一碗素肉骨茶汤蛮容易煮又好吃。人生可以像这碗素肉骨茶汤。没肉就看看厨房有没有别的可用的材料,加点心思,爱心和创意,就可以呈现一碗好看好吃的素肉骨茶汤 了。

昨天随便煮的家常便饭,我在窝里加水,肉骨茶汤包,把需要煮久点的材料如日本豆腐,豆干,冬菇,炸豆腐皮,灵芝片,红枣,枸纪子,萝卜等等先放。煮开了就慢火再煲下,差不多要吃时,我才放菜和调味。配饭或做面汤也行。

同样的汤,用点创意来呈现,看起来可以是一碗特别的素肉骨茶汤 !我想人生也可以这样吧 - 就算没什么也可以把它变成一碗与众不同的素肉骨茶汤!

Vege Pot @ Fortune Centre


At Bugis, Vegetarians are simply spoilt for choice! This is simply a vegetarian heaven, just in Fortune Centre this building housed more than 10 vegetarian eateries. Nowadays, many people, vegetarian or meat eater too, go for Vegetarian Food. 

Vege Pot located at Fortune Centre (level 2), has a good variety of choices  Hard for me to decide what to order. Anyway, I went for Vegetarian Penang Prawn Mee @ $5.5,  as not many places can do vegetarian Prawn Mee well and I want to try this in this eatery.  

There is one place where I love the Vegetarian Prawn Noodle soup base, but it is located at the hawker centres in Hougang  The price is very reasonable but doesn’t have what I would love to have – Kang Kong Veg or Pawn Mee Special Sambal chilli would that added oomph factor to the soup.

Here, presentation look good, serving is big and quite delicious. Just that, it isn’t spicy as I thought it should be.  Will be back to try other food they serves.

Vegetarian Dim Sum Hi-Tea


I’m a biased Vegetarian when come to Vegetarian Dim Sum, love to go to LingZhi. Since turned vegetarian out of a sudden in 1993, I’ve been dinning at LingZhi and love their Vegetarian Dim Sum.

By default, I went to Lingzhi last December again for Dim Sum Craving. Dim Sum Hi-Tea @ S$14.8++. 

However, I always open to delicious Vegetarian Dim Sum by other eateries if there are any other good ones around!

Let’s fall in love with Bangkok again!


Will Bangkok Jam become a popular choice for Vegetarian Diners? I don’t know. 

They have few outlets and lovely enough to have a vegetarian menu option. So I went to the outlet at Singapura Plaza, last December.  Overall experience still good, cozy,  location is easily accessible and with reasonable pricing.  

Will definitely go more if there are more diversify Vegetarian Option. [smile]




Enjoying the simple yet miraculous things in life …


Being a vegetarian in this Vegetarian Food Heaven country is simply easy! With so many wonderful vegetarian eateries in Singapore, I can really eat a lot and a lot, if I want to. Don’t be surprised!

Last November, at this Vegetarian Thai Restaurant, I finished a big claypot of Tang Hoon and a delicious Thai Chendol, all by myself.  It shocked the Waiter : O  I laughed.

Happy Food Moment @ O’bean …

After a not so fantastic buffet near Tanjong Pagar (my expectation has “levelled up” a lot), we took a slow walk to Chinatown.  On the way, we passed by O'bean Organic Soya and went in.

Had been to O’bean for few times but it was “grab-and-go” rush experience. Never did I know, this vegetarian eatery is such a lovely gem. I fell in love with the décor and convivial ambience in the eatery.  

Browsing through their menu … I knew I’ll come back for their speciality which I may not find it elsewhere and savour slowly.

YES! Veggie Crunch Burger

Within the diverse food scene in Singapore, I really appreciate vegetarian-friendly eateries/restaurants.  

With Veggie Crunch Burger @ S$3 permanently on the menu, my non-vegetarian friend will never have to worry that I don’t have anything to eat if we are in a non-vegetarian eateries and making it so much easier to making choices on where to go!

This Veggie Burger is nice, so much better at some eateries which used deep-fried hash brown for the patties!

哈! 是魷魚蕹菜!



第一次尝魷魚蕹菜是10岁那年,在马来西亚怡保街边小食档。好久没吃了。

几个月前下班后,都会特地溜个大圈儿,在新加坡唐人街散步,享受夕阳西下的时光,再搭地下铁回家。就这样子在庙堂街的一家素食店  --  一心素食,找到了素魷魚蕹菜,就叫了一盘当晚餐吃, 味道还不错, 很满足,开心。

现在素食越来越普及化了,在新加坡非常容易找到美味的素食。感恩。

Eat Green Days @ Thunder Tree … [RELOCATED to People's Park Centre Food Court]

I was thrilled by Thunder Tree operating at NorthTech! I head to this newly open stall which serves fresh and delicious organic food often now.
Simply love Hakka Lei Cha! Oishi!  One bowl is never enough, I would ordered 2 bowls with the extra bowl @ $1.  No one serves  the Hakka Lei Cha Rice Set priced ($5.5) quite like Thunder Tree,  the speciality is in the rice itself,  a different texture, fragrance and flavorful.
The Lei Cha Noodle ($4) is another item which I think the health-conscious diner would love.  As a chilli lover, I think this noodle dish would go best with red/green padi with soy sauce!
The Yam Porridge ($2.5) is a light yet comforting meal - simple and tasty. I tasted yam in it.   Maybe, they could introduce the option to choose a bigger bowl that priced differently or pairs with mini side dishes(Lei Chai Rice Vegetables).  While savouring the porridge,  my creative mind got turned on, what if they can serves Lei Cha Porridge, for something different?
Besides, these few items which I tried and satisfied with, there are Tofu Salad, Organic Salad, Fried Rice etc which I definitely will come for again.

Comforting Indulgences @ Shu Vegetarian


I like the taste of the food and the atmosphere here and pop by for dinner quite often. 

The Indian Rojak ($6.0) was good, I love the deep fried tempeh – crispy and delicious. It paired well with a glass of Ice Jelly Drink ($2.5).

Definitely a great option for budget-conscious me – that is the best part. Just $20.5 for a Western set, French Fries, Soup of the day – Lotus Soup and Fried Rice.

Slurping the fresh, lively food – Yasai Ramen @ Heathrow Airport T5



@ Heathrow Airport and was craving for piping hot noodle or rice and it needs to be vegetarian or vegan!  

Glad to find wagamama which serves fresh and exciting food!  After checking with the staff whether there are any dishes suitable for vegetarian, I decided to enjoy my dinner there.

Simply like good atmosphere restaurants that are vegetarian/vegan friendly and if there is a good permanent vegetarian option menu, that will be fantastic!  I love exciting Asian Vegetarian Food.



Dinning along the communal tables and while waiting for my food to arrive, I was captivated by the mini signage on the table.  Slurping the fresh, lively food - Yasai Ramen, wonderful.
