Tucked on the top floor of Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre is Nature Vegetarian Delights, a humble vegetarian restaurant established in 2003.
Having been vegetarians for over 3 decades, Toh Ah Gek and Toh Eng Han are no strangers to the wonders of the lifestyle.
“If we can live a good life without harming any animals, why not?”, shares Eng Han.
The siblings are fully committed to leading a plant-based lifestyle—be it for wellness or for spiritual reasons.
Continuing their mother’s legacy with Nature Vegetarian Delights
“It was our late mother’s wish for us to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle… We want to further her wish by making food that will change people’s perspectives of vegetarian food.”

Many dishes on the menu are a tribute to their late mother. These items also capture the siblings’ memories of growing up.
Ah Ma’s Mee Hoon Kueh (from $6.80) was handed down from their mother. To feed the big family of 12 siblings. The version at their store is handmade from scratch and hand-pulled piece by piece, just like how it used to be done.
They also recently launched the DIY Popiah Party ($23.80 for 3-4 pax), which is only available via delivery and takeaway.
“When we were young, we always had a good time wrapping popiah as a family. We want our customers to be able to recreate this same experience at home when they buy our popiah.”
