Fried Olive Wild Rice @ Clover 8

Clover 8 Bistro Vegetarian & Vegan Dining by Miaoyi @ Kallang Leisure Park

I was so excited to visit Clover 8 last weekend, 7 days after this vegetarian & vegan restaurant at Kallang Leisure Park. Clover 8 serves Thailand, Vietnamese and Italian cuisines and also hand made vegetarian dim sum by Hong Kong Chef. Overall, within Kallang Leisure Park, Clover 8 is relatively affordable. We prefer their Asian dishes to their Western dishes. For starters, we tried their: Glutinous rice in Lotus Leaf ($4.80) – nice without being too oily! Deep Fried Cashew “Cheese” Ball ($5.80) – unhealthy but glad that there is a vegan cheese option! Toasted Ravioli ($5.80) – Don’t recommend this dish as the it was relatively tasteless and very oily! Olive Fried Wild Rice ($5.80) – One of their signature dishes and healthier option to white rice. Love the vegetarian crispy floss! Vietnam Hot and Sour Soup ($5) – Looks innocent but quite lethally hot! Pad Thai ($5.80) – Good value and decent taste for that price in a mall setting. Nasi Lemak ($5.80) – I enjoyed this dish. The mock fried fish and chilli made it …

Real Food

Real Food is arguably the leader of organic, vegetarian food in Singapore. They started in a humble space in Central, Clark Quay a couple of years ago even before juicing became a fad, and have expanded to 4 outlets in Singapore and Malaysia. Real Food café is free from processed ingredients (food grade or otherwise), artificial preservatives and Trans-fat. Real Food is a restaurant we frequent, and Eatprayflying is privileged to able to speak to Jeeyang, one of the founders who started Real Food to understand more about Real Food’s vision and journey. One reason why I support Real Food is because they support ethical farming and ethical food preparation which really stands out in the food industry. Real Food sources mainly from organic farmers and even if the farmers do not have enough scale to pay for organic certification, the partners personally visit the farms to ensure the food is REALly (pun intended :P) free from pesticides and toxic farming ingredients. They also take pains to ensure their food is as healthy as possible – the oils …

Top 8 Healthy Organic Vegan Restaurants/ Cafes/ Wellness Centres in Phuket

espressolab @ China Square

I have been looking out for cafes that serve both good vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes so we can have a good meal with our friends who do not want to eat vegetarian dishes. So I am glad to find espressolab at China Square with good selection of vegetarian dishes. In fact, Ms Alicia Teoh, owner of espressolab at China Square, was a vegetarian for a few years before! Espressolab is conveniently located in the CBD with many seats, so this is an excellent choice for lunch. The cafe is also brightly lit so it is a good place to camp at if you need to do work or have work meetings. Alicia is extremely particular about the quality of her decor and even imported all the rubberwood tables from Penang to ensure quality of the furniture is not compromised for the customers. Generally, I find that when owners are very detailed about comforts for the customers, the food and service tends to be good and espressolab did not disappoint indeed! Vegetarian dishes: Vegetarian Aglio Olio ($9.80) …

Fried Beancurd Balls with Kailan @ Zen Fut Sai Kai

Zen Fut Sai Kai Vegetarian Restaurant @ Kitchener Road

I heard of Zen Fut Sai Kai from my grandmother for decades. Now that we have turned vegan and have lesser food options, we decided to give it a shot. The food doesn’t disappoint indeed, tastes like healthier version of local tze char. Was introduced this signature dish – Fried Beancurd Balls with Kailan. They have many dishes that are full of vegetables so I personally opt for those rather than mock meats. The flavours are also very local and tasty.  No wonder they have been around for decades! Also affordable at $20+ for 3 dishes. Will be back to try other dishes. — Address: 147 Kitchener Road, Singapore 208524 Tel: +65 62912350 Operating Hours: Tue-Sun: 10am – 930pm (Closed on Mon)

Spaghetti Soya Bolognaise @ Cafe Salivation

Café Salivation @ Little India

Café Salivation is the first Western Vegetarian Café that opened in Little India since 2008. They use no MSG in their cooking which is why I was keen to try. We started off with a strawberry shake that was supposedly vegan as it is from soy milk. But in retrospect, the server didn’t seem too confident when he answered me, so for fellow vegans, I suggest you double check before ordering! The first main we tried was Penne Arabiatta ($11), which was Penne pasta tossed with button mushrooms, red/yellow/green capsicums and garnished with red chilli flakes. The tomato base was very fresh tasting, and the chilli gives it an adequate punch without being too spicy.

Living Cafe Dessert

Top Natural/Organic Healthier Dessert Places in Singapore

Because I love desserts, I am starting a list for good raw/organic/vegan desserts separate from the restaurants and cafe list! 1) Delcie’s Desserts and Cake Organic, Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Diabetic Friendly I am so happy to find a healthy dessert alternative! Delcie’s mother passed away due to stomach and intestine cancer, which is why Delcie became a strong advocate to healthy eating, as she believes that “food can either be your medicine or your poison.” She pioneered the technique in baking guilt-free Organic, Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Diabetic Friendly cakes in Singapore, which is today’s Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes. We tried the double chocolate cake before and it was very yummy without the guilty!! Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes Address: Blk 34 Whampoa West #01-83 Singapore 330034 (map) Boon Keng MRT Exit Operating Hours: Tue – Sun (11am – 8pm), Public Holidays (11am – 3pm), Closed on Mondays.

All the good Vegan/Vegetarian Restaurants in Singapore!

When my mum recovered from Stage 4 Colon Cancer but still needed to be extra careful with her food, my top 5 picks of the restaurant I bring her to criteria are based on: 1) Organic 2) Vegan 3) Raw Food options 4) Taste 🙂 Enjoy! 1) Real Food One of the original pioneers of real, organic, no MSG, vegan food in Singapore, Real Food is doing well with 3 outlets in Novena, Orchard Central (previously Killiney) and Central. 2) Sunny Choice Sunny Choice is an inconspicuous cafe along Rail Mall that I had walked past umpteen times without even glancing at it once, but now has became a frequented cafe. They try to use as much organic produce as possible, and also stock fresh organic produce like fruits, vegetables and chia seeds. They also serve cold-pressed juice if you want a drink full of enzymes before your mains. My favourites – Xin Zhou Bee Hoon, Nasi Lemak, Po Piah. 3) Afterglow Afterglow – Probably the one and only organic cafe focused on RAW food. …

LivinGreens @ Rangoon Road

LivinGreens (I used to confuse myself by searching for Living Greens!), an organic vegan cafe, is a blessing to my mum and family. Ms Barbara Chin, the owner and chef of LivinGreens, has years of experience taking care of cancer patients so she is very aware of patients’ dietary needs. All her food sauces and salad dressings are painstakingly prepared from scratch using fresh ingredients. Even the water she uses to make her soups is filtered. LivinGreens used to be located at Beach Road but I am so glad they have now moved to relatively central Rangoon Road so we can eat there often, and without do the stress of food preparation at home! Most of LivinGreens mains are under $10, and these are some of our all time favourites! Raw dishes

Loving Hut @ Joo Chiat

As a relatively new vegan, I was very glad to hear that Loving Hut opened its flagship store in Joo Chiat. Loving Hut is an international vegan chain with around 200 stores worldwife. It is pretty difficult to find organic, vegan, non-GMO options in Singapore to bring mum too, so I strongly support all these restaurants and cafes now. And Loving Hut does not disappoint. It is one of my personal favourites in terms of the freshness and taste of the food. Loving Hut is the fastest growing chain of international vegan restaurants in the world. All our ingredients are 100% vegan. We use as much organic vegetables and non-GMO products as possible for all our dishes and drinks, with a particular focus on sourcing our ingredients from local producers to offer our customers the most natural, healthiest and most delicious cuisines.
