Blue Pea Flower Drink changing colour ..

 

Had this drink in one of resort spa in BKK. It was served with a little glass of lemon juice. You can drink it as it is. Or add the lemon juice and see it changes colour to a beautiful purple - now it's sweet plus sour - very refreshing. 

Remind me of  Ice Coconut Mint with Blue Pea Flower drink at Elemen.


Crave delicious food and incredible experience …

Now every vegetarian has every option to choose from in Singapore. For those who prefer restaurant dinning, they can have it at this new restaurant – experience a nice ambience and delicious vegetarian food. It was Friday. I came here for a relaxing quiet and well deserved good lunch for myself.

The Fusion Goodness lunch set promotion from $9.9+ with free complimentary beverage or should I go for the Nasi Padang at $14.9+ which caught my eye in my previous visit.

The Nasi Padang was beautifully presented, not too spicy and delicious as well. The eggplant was piping hot, must be just out from the oven. The thoughtfulness in this dish - the extra gravy was served in a small container.

Good food in a cosy and spacious setting!

It’s an impromptu recce trip after work, why not go and check out where is Green Ba actually located in Marina Square.  Didn’t expect to find that Green Ba is such a peaceful and beautiful restaurant. Still full after a pasta set lunch, so I just ordered the Dumpling in Chilli (红油素饺) at $6.9. It’s served hot, I like that. Delicious.

Browsing through their menu, what caught my eye is the Nasi Padang, I will come for this, the satay and Tempura too. I love Indonesian Cuisine but yet to find an eatery that serves veg*nise version.  Menu wise, there’s a good variety of choices.  

Polite and pleasant wait staff even I just ordered one dish. Nice dining experience.

Bonding over Coffee at New Starbucks Outlet ...


 
A new Starbucks outlet and our Boss said let’s go and coffee on Me.
Here I was, enjoying the new drink - Apricot and Peach Yogurt Frappuccino. A big group of us drinking coffee together.
The Spinach and Mushroom Quiche ($5.9) look tempting to a hungry me. I asked the wait staff, it’s vegetarian? He said yes but there’s egg. Egg is still OK for me. So, that become my late lunch.  It’s good to see eatery that serve items which cater to different customer needs.

At Tin Tai Fung - Vegetarian Dumpling or Egg Fried Rice ...

My Team asked me to join in the lunch date with an overseas HRBP. So, we’re at the Din Tai Fung few weeks ago and glad that there’re vegetarian options available. To have the Vegetarian Dumpling or Egg Fried Rice. I was thinking of vegetarian dumpling but ended up with Egg Fried Rice. Don’t ask me why. Nevertheless, it’s delectable and reminded me of the Egg Fried Rice I've in London in 2001. I'll go back for the vegetarian options - vegetarian dumplings etc ...

Veggie Burger @ Nando's

After a Team Bonding Event and followed by dinner at Nando’s. Ordered their Veggie Burger @ $12.9 (1 Reg side)/$13.90 (2 Reg side). Pondering between Mashed Potatoes, Wedge or Char Grilled vegetable for the side. In the end, chosen Char Grilled Vegetable (it has onion). 

Good to see vegetarian option. Else our big group will go somewhere that fulfil everyone diet requirements.

Love Gokul's Indian Rojak @ Fortune Centre ...

Like to order their Indian Rojak ($7) as takeaway and enjoy it at home. The sauce is delicious. So far, I've tried the Indian Rojak at Shu Vegetarian, not a bad choice too. Another dish I like in Gokul is the Vegetarian Murtabak (Mutton).

Real Food South Beach - A beautiful restaurant @ South Beach Road

This’s a beautiful cosy relaxing restaurant and it’s located above Esplanade MRT. I love the décor and ambience.  Perfect for meeting up with few friends over a hearty and healthy meal or for big group gathering. They have different type of seating arrangement, communal table, sofa seat, alfresco outdoor seating even quiet corner.
 
Like their delicious Dumpling noodle ($11.8) which well-presented and tasted like home cooked food. The fruit salad ($7.5) is so refreshing.

Friday Penang Prawn Noodle @ Cafe Nature...

It's only available on Friday and missed a few Friday. Finally got the chance to taste their Penany Prawn Noodle @ 5.9 yesterday. Not too sure how Penang Prawn Noodle tastes like, no comparison can be done. Quite a tasty soupy noodle and I like the Morning Glory (aka Kang Kong) and Bean Spout in the noodle.

Delicious Vegetarian Italian Cuisine @ Roma's Deli

Located in Shaw Tower is Roma’s Deli, a great place for Vegetarian Italian Cuisine. I’ve been to this Café in 2008 and it’s still around. A little lovely and cosy café that serves delicious food at a very affordable price. I love their Spaghetti and Mushroom Soup Lunch Set ($8.5) and Bake Rice and Mushroom Soup Lunch Set ($9).

Took a small spoonful of Curry Potatoes Bake Rice which my colleague was having. Simply yummy, will order that next round.

来碗 Nature Vegetarian @ Suntec热腾腾的养生石牛肉拉面汤 (Stone Pot Braised Noodle Soup) @ $7.5,是素的,但味道不错。我花了一些时间才把面吃完。不急,慢慢吃,难得是午休吃饭时间,好好享用。雨天吃热的食物,感觉真好,吃热的食物对我来说,才是真正有吃饱饭的满足感

Rather disappointing vegetarian experience at

We walked over from Le Meridien (Suvarnabhumi) Golf Resort and SPA to The Fountain at Summit Windmill Golf Residence for a late dinner at 21:30. 

We’re looking for vegetarian options. The staff did manage to whip up a Khang Jeud Taw Hou Moo Sab (THB 150++) and Yakisoba (THB 240++) but it didn’t taste that great. Maybe, they didn’t foresee having a vegetarian request and unprepared.

In today world, vegetarian diet or cuisine is a New NORM. Reputable hotels would have some delicious vegetarianised dishes/options on standby to provide vegetarian/Vegan guests a good dining experience.

Vegetarian looking for Vegetarian Food in Changi Airport (Departure/Transit Lounge) …

Doesn’t have much time checking out which are the vegetarian friendly eateries in Changi Airport. Hungry and only want vegetarian food. Happened to know that Ippudo serves veggie ramen, and glad to see this option at Ippudo Express at Changi Airport Terminal 2 (Departure/Transit Lounge) Enjoyed a delicious hot food,  soupy ramen - veggie ramen (S$10). Love their hearty vegetable consommé, so tasty. Do note, garlic oil is used, I guess can be omitted if asked.  

For LACTO-OVO-Vegetarian, may add an egg (S$3).

Sipping Turkish Coffee and Doing Nothing (La Dolce Far Niente) in Singapore

Was at Istanbul Turkish Restaurant, doing nothing (La Dolce Far Niente) and sipping Turkish coffee (drinking Turkish coffee is a slow and gentle process) @ S$6.60 (with service charges). 
Discovered this beautiful Halal non-vegetarian restaurant has quite a lot of vegetarian options. A good place to taste vegetarian Turkish cuisine or for group lunch or dinner with different dietary options.

Wonderful, warm and friendly wait staff - Very pleasant experience.

Enjoying simple things in life!

Life can be simple, enjoyable and happy.  Who says Breakfast must be Benedict with Bacon or Egg Omelette? Do it differently. Go for something different.  Enjoyed the All Day Breakfast set (S$4.8) @ HarriAnns Nonya Table. 

Love the bite-sized old-school Nonya kueh, so beautiful which allow me to indulging more and the coffee is exactly how love it to be.

Quick lunch @ Mummy Yummy


I’ll go to Mummy Yummy Shenton House to settle lunch, if I on a hectic schedule. Was there 1-2 weeks ago and happy to see vegetable dishes look fresh, green and yummy. Over cooked dishes often not appetising. I ordered Bee Hoon with 2 dishes @ S$3, taste good. Only one type of chilli available. 

Also noticed they’re getting more environmental friendly now – using brown food wrapping paper instead of styrofoam product. In the past, the hawker centre stalls normally grease-proof brown food wrapping paper for take away too.

Disposable cutlery is still used here. So, if I know I'm go there to dine in, I’ll bring along my own cutlery set.

Meditation & Cuppa Joe

Morning, pick-me-up - one hour of meditation. Afternoon, saving a cuppa Joe (White S$4) @ The Glasshouse Speciality Coffee & Toast Bar. A hidden gem - Lovely ambience and the lingering aromatic taste of coffee. 

Appreciating the many little things in life … ME Time to meditate, drinking coffee and more …

Tasting New Fut Kai Vegetarian Food @ Vesak Day 2562 Celebration

Zi Zai Vegetarian @ Beemdeer (Boon Keng MRT)

A little cosy and relaxing vegetarian eatery serving vegetarian food at affordable price. Easily accessible, as it’s located along the NE line (Boon Keng MRT station), so if you’re looking for vegetarian dinner (Zi Char Style) just get out of this station. Here you can find two vegetarian eateries that still serves good vegetarian food for at this hour - Zi Zai Vegetrian and Yuan Xiang Vegetarian (Blk 27, Coffeeshop). 

Was at Zi Zai Vegertarian, 1-2 weeks ago and ordered a plate of Hong Kong Fried Bee Hoon @ $4.  What is the difference between Hong Kong and Singapore Fried Bee Hoon? I don’t know. Here, the serving is big, if you’re a small eater then this’s good for 2 pax , to go with some other dishes.  It’s a little tasteless, could be the Chef forgotten to add salt that day.  Minor issue.

Going vegetarian is so easy in Singapore ...

Besides Vegetarian Cuisine, we’ve Vegetarian-Friendly Cuisine at most of the restaurants/eateries. Hmmm…. that’s the NEW thing and is getting popular. It would be very behind times, if restaurants has no vegetarian menu or vegetarian options on their menu. Just looking around, it so easy to find vegetarian food now.

Enjoying my lunch at Saravanaa Bhava @ Clifford Centre Basement (NTUC FoodFare) - Indian Vegetarian Cuisine – Mini Tiffin @ S$6.4

I’m so full! If not or the portion can be reduced a little, I would definitely add a cup of Mango Lassi or Teh Tarik to my meal. That would be perfect!

OMG, I’m wrong!

Often I just walked past this place and thought that it’s just small kiosk where you grab a salad or a drink and go. Today, was thinking of getting a cold drink at Well-dressed Salad Bar & Café, only then I discovered this cosy interior décor inside this old shop-house (with air-con), a perfect place for pit stop to enjoy a refreshing fresh fruit juice (S$5) in this hot weather.  Like their environmental friendly straw!

Will return again for other items on their menu …

Moment of Pause ...

Sometimes, it's healthy to take moments of pause. If the glass of water get too heavy, put it down for a while and then pick it up again later, it'll become much lighter.

This afternoon, I tried this theory out, by drinking a good cuppa of latte and enjoying a slice of sweetness - carrot cake @ 63Celsius, recharging ... Coffee and cake, simply good and delicious!

Go to The Boneless Kitchen ...

What’s Boneless Kitchen? It’s an eatery that serves 100% Vegetarian Korean Cuisine located near Tai Seng MRT station (Exit A).  It’s great to see such diversity in Singapore food scene especially the vegetarian cuisine area.

One of the most popular dish here is Soondubu Jjigae 豆腐汤配饭 ($12.9) with Ramen or Rice, and I ordered it with Ramen.  Delicious broth and spicy enough for me. Just that, it has too much tofu. I would prefer it to have a little more Kimchi or maybe replace with some Soy bean spout.
Kimchi Pancake ($3.9) is nice but a little oily and soggy. Otherwise, I would fall in love with this dish easily. 

The Jajangmyeon 炸酱面($10.9) is popular with kids in Korean, no wonder my BIG kid who can’t take spicy food, loves this dish so much and only order this whenever he dines here. Not for me.

The side dish are free but not refillable, mashed potatoes and lettuce were served to us. Overall feel, it’s a nice eatery. Located in “Industrial area” and yet it’s almost full house on a Saturday. Reservation is recommended.

Where: The Boneless Kitchen. 1 Irving Place, The Commerze @ Irving, #01-31 S369546. Tel: 8457 6464.

Tasting the creatively crafted healthy tasty dishes @ Elemen(Millenia Walk)

Innovative and artfully presented vegetarian cuisine at Elemen.  The dishes are so stylist, vibrant and colourful. I go for the 8-course set at $32.80++ instead of 5-course set @ $26.80++. My pick are Rojak (Fruit Rojak), 5 Elements Soup, Blue Flower Tofu with Truffle Wild Rice, Ice Coconut Mint with Blue Pea Flower drink, Chocolate Laver Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream.

I’ve figure out what I love – the refreshing Rojak Salad with unique ingredients, the piping hot clear 5 Elements Soup and Blue Flower Tofu with Truffle Wild Rice.  The Asian Curry with Naan Bread is a good item to be on the menu but lacks oomph.

Look like I’ll be here again for to feast on the dishes like Black Truffle Porcini Pasta, Pesto Fettuccine!

At lunchtime, grab a Vege Medley Roll $3 with Viet Pesto @ Saigon Rolls.  Simple, fresh and light!  Fell in love with salad dress – Viet Pesto. 

Thinking of having some fun and doing a creative combination by mixing with the other vegetarian/vegan options – Mushroom Roll, Avocado Roll and Tofu Roll for my next bento lunch box.

Little fun working in town! Drinking free Coffee @ Boulevard …

Yes, free coffee from 8am-5pm at Boulevard these few days, near workplace. I’ve tasted few cups of free coffee from Boulevard – Cappuccino, Flat White, Latte ...

Soon I'll leave this place and learning to enjoy those simple little moments and discovering the joy in it. A chance to practice looking for positive things in life and expressing the gratitude.

Let’s do dinner @ Nature Vegetarian Delights!

Too lazy to cook and looking for something nourishing yet inexpensive. Here we’re at Nature Vegetarian Delights for a simple dinner.  We ordered a tonic Soup ($6), full of goodness and tasty.  Can we just have Petai Bean? Yes, they did it for us but it’s priced at $15. That’s fine as it’s simply delicious and paired well with rice.   

Like the taste of the past, so we picked the Trotter with Black Vinegar ($10). This dish was different from what we had before. I like that the eatery constantly improving and bringing vegetarian cuisine to a higher level. The mock Trotter used is different from the past, it gives a different texture but may not be so suitable to cook longer to absorb the braising liquid.

I practice DON'T eat lunch at my desk ...

The thirty ways to reduce stress at work which I read from the book – Work, one of the points is: Don’t eat lunch at your desk. Change environments. Go for a walk.

I often venture far within the vicinity alone, so I'd move swiftly, the freedom to go where I like to explore, savour vegetarian cuisine and enjoy those quiet moments (solitude inspires creativity) …
