If you’re a meat eater and the only time you intentionally had a meatless meal was when Impossible™ Foods launched in Singapore, I don’t blame you.
The vegetarian food scene in Singapore only became fast-growing in recent years, with more Singaporeans converting to vegetarianism or opting to eat more plant-based food due to health and environmental concerns.
But long before you started noticing Impossible™ Meat dishes at semi-atas restaurants, these 11 vegetarian eateries in Singapore have been serving delicious plant-based food to customers. This 2021, discover vegetarian eateries that deliver to your home to welcome the new year and new phase!
1. A-One Green Signature
Many may recognise Green Signaturefrom its founding company “A-One Group” that also owns A-One Claypot House and Hey Yummy. But more than just being a member of the group, Green Signature prides itself in being a vegetarian concept that was created to meet the rising demands of the vegetarian market and to cater to those with healthier eating habits.
Lingzhi Vegetarian is a plant-based restaurant owned by the famed TungLok Group. Established in 1991, the restaurant’s quality ingredients have kept both vegetarians and meat-lovers coming back for more.
If you’re looking to host a family or friend gathering at home, Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant also has a Set Meal ($94.60 for 4 to5 pax) that allows you to select your choice of Main and Soup, and dishes from the Mushroom Series, Soya Series and Vegetable Series. Why go out and endure the crowd when you can dine in the comfort of your home over green treats?
6. Love Handle Burgers
If you decide to go plant-based this and need more options besides Vegan Burg, Love Handle Burger’s classic all-American burger menu is sure to do the trick.
All their patties are made with 100% Impossible Meat so it looks and tastes like a real beef burger sans the extra fat. Have your pick from the Cheeseburger ($12.50), Mushroom Cheese ($17) to the Fillet-O-Fishless Combo ($16.50). Who knows? You might be a convert after this. The world is your burger at Love Handle Burgers.
7. Nature Vegetarian Delights
With an extensive plant-based menu featuring a variety of cuisines such as Chinese, Western and Japanese, Nature Vegetarian Delights is a restaurant aiming to make a difference in people’s perception of vegetarian food.
The restaurant also prepares modern dishes like the Veg Salmon Poke Bowl ($9.50) to cater to the younger population with “trendier” tastebuds. However, if you do order food from this restaurant, definitely try out their Signature Soymilk Miso Charcoal Hotpot ($25) filled with superfoods and collagen! Finally, end off your meal with a bowl of Black Sesame Paste ($3.50) for a sweet finish.
The Salad Shopis one of those places that nourishes the soul after a long week of work. I’d like to think this makes the perfect ‘reset meal’ after a weekend of binging junk food while catching up on my favourite Netflix series.
Their salad bowls come in 3 sizes, the Small Human Feed ($11), Vegman Feed ($13) and Human Feed ($15). Every size comes with 1 base, 1 dressing and 1 topping, so you can customise your bowl to your own liking. If you aren’t a fan of cold salads, they serve 2 variations of Hot Boxes too. For spicy food lovers, the Fire Box ($11.50) served with their signature chilli will be right up your alley. Otherwise, non-spicy food eaters might enjoy the J-Box ($11.50) featuring its lemon and garlic chicken.
11. Vegan Burg
I know, can a vegan burger ever taste as good as a normal beef burger? At VeganBurg, they can. Sure, I was skeptical at first. However, that quickly changed once I had a bite of their winning burgers.
Their GMO-free plant protein patties mimic the texture of meat and let me tell you, I wasn’t missing a thing. Opt for one of the award-winning Chilli Krab Burg ($11.90). A yummy tribute to the local favourite, featuring a crunchy, gluten-free patty topped with a sweet and tangy chili crab sauce, romaine lettuce, coriander, finely shredded farm-fresh cabbage and a generous scoop of creamy vegan aioli. All meat-free.
