The dilemma! Where does a vegetarian who is meeting up or lunching with non-vegetarian friends or colleagues go to?
I have really wonderful friends and colleagues who do not mind going to a Vegetarian Eatery due to my vegetarian diet requirement. This is what I am very grateful for. Sometimes, we do face a problem where there is no vegetarian eatery around and we do not want to travel all the way to the vegetarian eateries in town.
Under this type of circumstances, we would pick those non-vegetarian eateries which are Vegetarian Friendly and have a good Vegetarian Menu Option.
Yes, the good news is that in Singapore, this is a vegetarian heaven and more and more eateries are getting vegetarian friendly. With the urge of Dr Pachauri (Chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), eat less meat for the green cause, I believe more people will take into consideration of eating more green for a healthy body and the healthy planet. Soon, eateries will go green and include creative vegetarian or vegan menu with more varieties.
@ Causeway Point, there are few vegetarian friendly eateries - Pasta Mania, Pizza Hut and Sakae Sushi! We decide to dine in Pasta Mania. We were served by a friendly and cheerful young lady. I was surprised that she had a good knowledge of what vegetarian food is all about. When I asked her whether the new dish - Mushroom Baked Rice is vegetarian, she replied that the cheese isn't (if rennet is used, that the cheese isn't suitable for vegetarian). This really brightened up my day to know that non-vegetarian eateries are getting more knowledgeable about Vegetarian Diet and are honest in dealing with customers.
We then opted for pasta in vegetarian category. My non-vegetarian ex-colleague who brought me lunch even picked a vegetarian dish on their vegetarian menu!
Where: PastaMania @ Causeway Point. Basement 1.
