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
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.
During my amazing stay at Dwarika’s at Nepal before we did our Poon Hill trek, N and I tried some amazing food at the Dwarika’s Resort. At that time I wasn’t vegan, but the food quality was exquisite. Since then, I have come to learn that at Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel, Mr. Pramod Mahaseth, the head chef, obtains almost all of the restaurant’s ingredients from their very own two organic farms – one near Dhulikhel and the other in Chitwan. I am glad that while the Dwarika’s Group preaches that food is a very important aspect of the lifestyle at the resort, they live what they preach by sourcing and growing their own organic, fresh Nepali ingredients. Here is one amazing looking salad recipe from Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel, which I believe we can all reproduce at home even if we can’t travel to beautiful Nepal!
