Enjoying old school dishes @ Yi Xin Vegetarian at Temple Street ...

Few days ago, I ordered an unusual combination for quick dinner after work - a bowl of vegetarian porridge ($2.5) and a plate of vegetarian cuttlefish kang kong ($4). It's nice to see this veganised dish - Cuttlefish Kang Kong on their menu.

Dinner and Dance @ Four Seasons Hotel

On a contract assignment and was included in the company D&D 2018 event. So, I went to check out what interesting vegetarian menu can there be. It was at the Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore. Quite a different experience for the past D&D that I attended, it’s buffet style.
Some dishes like yu fu noodle, vegetables, sushi, mushroom soup were veg*nised but were served together with non-vegetarian food (like the sushi).  Wasn't eating that much that night, but enjoyed the Lychee Sorbet the most.

CNY Lunch at Folk Creative @ Asia Square

Another mini CNY Team lunch, another mini Lo-Hei. This place was picked because there’s vegetarian options (we’ve few vegetarians in our team).

Was a little disappointed, as I was craving for green curry, but this dish used chicken stock and not suitable for vegetarian. But the vegetarian Pad Thai ($12.9) and Pineapple Fried Rice ($12.9) were good and I can enjoyed the dessert Red Ruby ($6.9).

Only down side was the Yu Sheng dish, the shredded vegetables were too thick and all got entangled together which made serving so difficult.

Fruit Yogurt with a CNY taste ...

Having fun and letting "Thinking Out of the Box" go wild a bit! Decided to add a touch of CNY to this Green Apple mixed in Yogurt with Raisins, Blueberries and Cranberry, to be served during Chinese New Year.

How? By adding some bits of sun-dried orange which is a ingredient found in Yu Sheng !

Vegetarian CNY Lunch @ TungLok Signatures

I love the Vegetarian restaurants under TungLok Group, which serves innovative scrumptious vegetarian cuisine. By default, I would think the non-vegetarian restaurants under this group would have few impressive vegetable-forward dishes on their menu too.

How do I feel about the vegetarian menu (S$78++ per pax) at TungLok Signatures? There’re some delicious, innovative and beautifully presented vegetarian dishes which wow me!  

The mock salmon in the YuSheng, unbelievably, so real. The Grilled Bran and Beancurd Skin served on Pancake combined with Fresh Fruit and Crispy Charcoal Bamboo Beancurd in Sesame Sauce, were innovative.  The Chilled Aloe Vera Lemongrass Jelly topped with Lychee Sorbet was refreshing!
That isn't wet tissue, it's pancake for wrapping (with TungLok's stamp on it) ... 

Whereas the Chrysanthemum Tofu in Consommé dish, beautifully crafted with flavourful broth but the tofu was quite tasteless. Poached Handmade Noodle with Diced Fungus in Broth served in Bamboo Cup was something new and unique dish to be included in a traditional Chinese banquet menu, just that the noodle was too bland.
The only not so impressive dish and lacking was the Sautéed Mushroom with Green.  On the whole, it was good to see vegetable-forward cuisine in non-vegetarian restaurant. A nice experience.

Miao Yi @ People's Park (Chinatown)

This place was once known as Xin Man Yuan Vegetarian and now is Miao Yi Vegetarian. No wonder, I could not find the noodle dish that I loved - Truffle Braised Ee Main, on the menu. 

Anyway, I was here because I was too tired to cook dinner after work. Although, there are 3 vegetarian stalls in People’s Park Centre, I often have the idea that by 7pm, most vegetarian stalls wouldn’t have much options, so I decided to go to the restaurant for quiet quick simple dinner in a spacious environment.

We ordered Creamy Shark’s Fin Soup with Crab slice (S$13++), Olive Fried Rice (S$9++) and Assorted E Noodle (S$6++). Love the soup and the fried rice.

Vegetarian Assam Laska @ Yi Xin (Temple Street, Singapore)

A revisit to Yi Xin Vegetarian at Chinatown, Temple Street. It’s just beside Dragon Gate Vegetarian which took over their old premises.  They are an eatery serving  vegetarian economic rice with veg*nised Malaysian dishes. There are also daily desserts and 10 other noodle/salad dishes for diners who do not want to go for rice-based meals. Usually quite crowded.

I was there for their Vegetarian Assam Laska ($4.5) which is quite a popular dish.  I love the deep fried seaweed very much – unique. Serving is big. The broth used is not too spicy too nor sour, tasty. 

For me, I would love to have peppermint and sliced red chilli instead of green leafy vegetables and cabbages which don’t seem to pair well with this traditional Assam Laksa dish.

Vegetarian options @ ABC ...

I came to Artisan Boulangerie Co. (ABC) because they have more vegetarian options than most non-vegetarian eateries, on their menu. I love the ambience and the Mushroom Truffle Soup ($7+). The Truffled Mushroom Risotto ($14+) was not so impressive due to the presentation and a tad too salty.
Was wondering is there any Smashed Avocado Risotto suitable for vegetarian and vegan …

Playing with Cooking: Golden Soymilk with Cinnamon

Give it a try, trying something new – I ordered Turmeric latte a week ago.  I like the below saying a lot and finally able to improvise this Vegan Turmeric Soy Latte along that line:

“Whatever twist or turn, whatever happened in life, you can always make something good about it … How you make it works! …”

I guess, with the cultivating of perception of beauty,  wabi sabi philosophy, things or events can often turned out to be something unique and beautiful, with a totally different perspective.

PS: Ingredients and method for Golden Soymilk with Cinnamon - Bring sweeten soymilk with turmeric powder and cinnamon to a boil.

Inclusive concept & vegan/vegetarian options on their menu...

Love the word – “Rebel” in the restaurant name – Kitchen by Food Rebel. I like being rebellious in a positive way (being a vegetarian), have a bit of fun, not following the norm and go find it out for myself. Often, there’re interesting discoveries.

Like this restaurant’s inclusive concept, so veg*n option is on their menu, lovely! And I ordered Vegan Sweet Potato and Chickpea Bowl ($19) and a Turmeric Latte ($6).

It's crowded and full house. Our meal took 45 mins to arrive even we've pre-ordered over the phone. Anyway, it was Friday, so we kind of more relax and in no hurry!

A beautiful new discovery...

Life is full of beautiful things await to be discovered. You never know what you'll find. This evening after work, need a stroll and chosen a different route leads me to this beautiful, relaxing and peaceful space - Red Dot Museum.

I love this cosy Museum Shop and Cafe. This moment I'm sitting in the Museum Cafe - Food Anatomy and listening to beautiful Cafe music and enjoying the Creme Burlee ($6++), after $4 discount (from Admission ticket), I pay $3.10.

How I wish one or two of those beautiful TAPAS can be vegetarian friendly. It seems that Crème Burlee is the only vegetarian option but is fine.  Life can be simple yet beautiful.

Cheers! It’s Christmas Buffet Lunch @ Town Restaurant …

Lunchtime and by the river. Christmas Lunch @ Fullerton Hotel – Town Restaurant! Buffet style and which dishes are suitable for vegetarian? The label didn’t show which dishes are vegetarian friendly. I wonder.  Then, I asked – Is there any vegetarian food?
I'm happy that the restaurant whipped up a Vegetarian Hor Fun for me.  I guess it is rather an unexpected order therefore this vegetarian dish didn’t really excite me in term of taste and presentation.
