A revisit - Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant at Quality Hotel …

We revisited Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant for their sumptuous Buffet @ $24.8++ (weekend price), after my Meditation Session at Zen Center, few weeks back.   

The selection and quality of food is getting better and better! Looking at the mouth-watering selections of dishes ranging from Asian Noodles, Taiwan Cuisines, Assorted Sushi to Crispy Pizzas and Pasta, simply enough to excite my taste buds.

My well-loved dishes they got it done perfectly - the vegetarian chicken rice, Laska, Taiwanese Mee Suan, Curry with toasted bread, Congee, flavourful Soups and many more …

Was it after meditation, I filled with more calm energy that enhances the taste of the food or Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant has treasure trove of dishes full of flavours. 

Hmmm … I would say – BOTH. [smile]  Happiness is enjoying sumptuous vegetarian meal with loved one!

静思书轩 ... 我终于来喝杯咖啡!

我终于来喝杯咖啡!到禅林坐完禅,心静下来后,我顺道来这点了Cappuccino @ S$5。生活可以很简单但却不无聊。有许多许多事情值得做, 学习,体验而不是去比较和争执。

记得两年前,上过温宗堃教授的两日工作坊。学习了一种生活的艺术 - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program。教授在教我们瑜伽时,对我们说只是依自己的能力去做,不需去看旁人,快或慢都没关系,把正念放在每个动作上,觉察自己。那时我终于有一种新的体验,原来瑜伽依这种方式做,感觉和以前很不一样,也不累。心情是静安和放松的,充满正面的能量。


回想起来,原来自己是幸福的,看来像是没成就,但却有有那么多的机会学习和体验人生里的酸甜苦辣 好丰富的人生。

Delicious Vegetarian Green Curry @ Silom Village (BKK)

I really appreciate those vegetarian friendly restaurants and eateries.  After 240km land journey from Pak Chong to Survarnabhumi Airport and it was great to be able to enjoy a delicious vegetarian late dinner at BKK airport just before my flight back to Sin.  

Language is a barrier for me in Bangkok and it was great to see a vegetarian menu in this restaurant with different good option. Thumbs up for the Vegetarian Green Curry.

静思书轩 ...

第一次路过静思书轩,觉气氛不错 - 书香,咖啡香,心灵香 ,有台湾的味道。蛮喜欢这里的气氛。说下次经过时,要来这喝杯咖啡。但每回都忘了,只是进去买了静思语妙用卡。

Exploring Vegan Cuisines @ Genesis Vegan Restaurant …

If you’re looking for a reasonable price (no GST & service charge) and good, healthy yet delicious vegan food, Genesis Vegan Restaurant at 115 Owen Road (Farrer Park MRT) is the ideal eatery to go to.

Dishes that I enjoyed are Nonya Laksa @ $7.9, Ba Kut Teh @ $7.9 and Original Dumplings @ $6.0, Hakka Abacus @ $8.0.  

The menu is good enough with Western, Rice and also Local selection but I thought it would be fun to do a mix and match.  Personally, I like their Nonya Laksa broth and Dumplings, how about forming a more adventurous combo - Dumplings with Laksa broth or pairing Dumplings with a mini salad that came with Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta.

Hakka Abacus dish is simply delicious, well done and not oily.

The Ba Kut Teh soup is robust with plant-based ingredients such as tofu, mushroom, yam, wolfberries etc. The rice is serves with vegetable that make a healthy balance meal.  Rice or Noodle, Noodle or Rice,  for Ba Kut Teh, hmmm …. I wonder ….

Awesome Lunch @ Afterglow

Quinoa Bowl @ S$16+ 
My young man has fallen in love with the awesome vegan raw food at Afterglow and he brought me there.  

Co-incidentally, Keong Saik Carnival is on May 28, the area is simply vibrant.  It reminds me of the Rocks Market in Sydney and Portobello Road Market in London. I love places with aesthetic appeal and the ambience today at this hip eatery was simply awesome for alfresco dinning. 

Quinoa Bowl @ S$16+ that I ordered was crisp and fresh and with its unique exciting tasty natural flavours. Simply love it. The Raw Lasagne @ S$22+ that my young man had was wholesome and delicious! I will try The Raw Taco Bowl next visit, as it was out of stock today.

Feeling blessed, a lunch can has such unexpected outcome, this world is amazing … [smiling]

Some interesting food options to look forward to at Nature Vegetarian Delights ...

Don’t miss this Claypot Main Xian (Mee Sua), S$5.5 at Nature Vegetarian Delights,  my non-vegetarian ex-colleagues simply love ordering this when they swing by for lunch.

A flavourful heart-warming comfort bowl of Main Xian. Add some pepper and black vinegar for the oomph factor.  Kind of taste like Shark’s Fin Soup.  

Serving is quite big and price is easy on the pocket, $5.5.  Quality yet affordable. They do have a fantastic good variety of  choices for noodle, rice, al carte dishes etc.  Most intriguing is the Prata with Ham and Cheese Wrap @ S$2.5. Check it out at the restaurant or their Menu

Do note, it is crowded on New Moon and Full Moon days.

Be prepared to queue – but it’s well worth the wait …

Simply love the vegetarian duck rice and vegetarian chicken rice ($3) at this stall located very near to Boon Keng MRT, the Hawker Centre.
There is always a long queue for the chicken rice, be prepared to wait.  You will never be disappointed, as what you will get is warm crispy deep-fried mock chicken (made from beancurd skin) fresh out from the wok.  Hot food always taste better.

They make additional effort to present the chicken rice beautifully and also with fresh ingredient - the cucumber is crunchy and fresh.  The vegetarian chicken chilli taste good too and it also comes with a small bowl of soup.
The vegetarian duck rice – I just love the tasty rice with the special sauce on it, which I haven’t find it selling anywhere. The soup is kway chap soup, tasty. 

I still haven’t figure out which day of the week, they will serve chicken or duck rice.  Their Vegetarian Mee Soto and Vegetarian Mee Rebus are delicious as well.

Gourmet Vegetarian Wanton Noodles …

Till I find the gourmet vegetarian wanton noodles, I will consider the wanton noodle ($5) at Nature Vegetarian Restaurant, the best vegetarian wanton noodle I have so far.

The noodle is well cooked and taste just right with the tasty sauce.  I have a special liking for the bowl of wonton in soup that comes with it. The charred vegetarian char siew is so much better that those used in the vegetarian hawker stall.

I wonder whether can I up-size the bowl of wonton soup or are they able to elevate this noodle dish to a different level with the option of premium version that priced differently.

Mix of Indian and Asian flavors for both Carnivores and Herbivores

Little India in Singapore has ton of eateries and restaurants, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. There is a hidden gem that serves up good mix of Indian and Asian flavors for both Carnivores and Herbivores – GOKUL Vegetarian Restaurant.

Bringing along with me is a non-local lovely young lady to feel the vibe of dining in an authentic Indian vegetarian restaurant in Little India. Also to taste the insanely delicious vegetarian food. It was a week day night, yet the restaurant is packed with diners. Is a night that I enjoy the crowd.

Laksa Goreng ($8.5+) is a fusion creation, Laska in Hokkien Mee style. Toothsome! Yet to find another eateries that dishes up Vegetarian Murtabak ($8+), so I forgo the temptation of other dishes on the extensive menu
Northern Indian Food, Bee Hoon Goreng, Soup Kambing … I will come for it!

A basket of papadum was served (on the house). No service charge and plain water is free flow.

Rise and shine with a lovely solo morning walk from Premier Inn to Bicester Village to grab a bite for breakfast. Enjoyed the cool countryside fresh air, relax and recharged!

PRET A MANAGER is a cozy eatery and offers Vegetarian Option too. Phew! 

Enjoyed the lovingly handmade Avocado & Herb Salad Wrap. Fresh and light yet delicious!  If there are more vegetarian option, it would love to try and eat more.

I like their concept of charging different price for dinning in and take away (cheaper).

Eat & Drink at Sky Garden - Darwin Brasserie (UK)

A rare chance to experience dining at Darwin Brasserie with breath-taking views. 
Simply love restaurant that serves excellent vegetarian options that are beautifully presented. Wish that there is more vegetarian options.
The Courgette & Basil Risotto (v) with Levin Down Cheese £14.50 was a tad too salty otherwise it was great. 
 Latte £2.80
It was such a joy wandering around the Sky Garden that offers 360 degree uninterrupted views across the City of London. Love this space that spans three storeys which offers the best view.

The chic and modern vegetarian menu that offer either five-course set or eight-course set, priced from S$23.50++. Just excellent value for money.
