Top 10 Vegetarian Eateries in Singapore


Singapore has been my home for over seven years.  When I first came to Singapore, I heard a lot of people tell me that it is tough to be a vegetarian/vegan in Singapore.  After living here for long enough, I found this simply was not true.  Therefore, I created Hungry Ang Mo to document all the amazing food that can be found in Singapore.

This list below is my unbiased opinion on the best vegetarian food that one can find in Singapore, please consider, I have reviewed literally almost everywhere (around 450 eateries) in Singapore.  This is not one of those lists that people create just to get views, without actually knowing about the subject they are talking about.
 
So without further delay, lets start from 10th and work our way down:-

**Note - Updated as of 6/05/2016** 

  
10th Zen Fut Sai Kai Vegetarian Restaurant
The incredible Kum Loo Wanton ($6.00), served with sweet & sour dipping sauce.

Upon stepping into Zen Fut Sai Kai, customers will get the distinct feeling of being taken back in time.  This restaurant opened in 1953, and the interior design and menu have remained completely unchanged since then.  The wantons are a must.  Crispy, fresh and absolutely delicious - Without question the best wantons in Singapore.  The owners (which are currently the third generation of the grandmother who originally opened the place) are the typical Cantonese style characters, which certainly makes it an experience to eat there.  This restaurant is living proof that Little India doesn't just have great Indian food!

Why go?
Kum Loo Wanton, Sap Kum Sugar Cane Flower Soup, Kwai Hou Loo Mee

Opening Hours: Tue-Sat 10.00am - 9.30pm.  Monday closed (unless day is 1st & 15th)



9th Yi Xin Vegetarian Food
The mouth-watering Chili Fish ($7.00) from Yi Xin

Lots of good vegetarian places can be found in Chinatown, but this is by far the best. They have a menu for cheaper priced foods, and one with more expensive dishes. Having tried a lot of them, all are really impressive.  The stable (everyday) meal for most Singaporeans is economic rice and dishes, and I must say the best economic rice (in terms of variety and quality) that I have tried was at Yi Xin.  If you're anywhere near Chinatown, this is a place you should be going to!  Be warned, this place can get feverishly busy during the peak eating times, and seats can be hard to come by!

Why go?
 Olive Fried Rice, Chili Fish, Satay, Economic Rice and Dishes

8th Bespoke Japanese Vegetarian Dining
What a visual display on the table, this is the Green Tea Soba Set ($18.00)

When you feel like trying out a different cuisine, then I highly recommend heading down to Bespoke Vegetarian.  This restaurant is serving exclusively Japanese vegetarian food, which makes it the only one of its kind in Singapore.  I highly recommend their sushi and noodle soup dishes, which are the items I regularly order when visiting.  The ambience and atmosphere of this eatery is excellent, making it perfect for gatherings or special occasions.  Definitely a place you must visit when eating in Singapore!

Why go?
 Avacado Maki, Green Tea Soba, Gai Lan Sesame Sauce, Unagi Maki

7th Komala Vilas Vegetarian Restaurant
A fireworks display of food placed on a banana leaf, the Dosai Set Meal ($7.50)
  The Komala Vilas chain of restaurants have occupied Singapore for over 60 years, which in the ever changing landscape of Singapore, is quite incredible. What Komala Vilas offers the customer is traditional South Indian delights, set in an authentic eating ambiance, which makes you feel like you've been whisked away to a side street of India. Fork and spoon hinder the eating enjoyment of this food, simply grab it with your right hand and enjoy!

 6th Fill-a-Pita
A little parcel packed with flavour, the Falafel Pita ($5.50)
If you're looking for amazing Middle Eastern food in Singapore that is totally 100% vegetarian, then Fill-a-Pita is a must try.  Egyptian-born owner Hassan offers mouth-watering pita's, with the fava bean pita being my particular favourite (especially with the chilli cranked up higher).  Not only is the food excellent, but Hassan manages to make every customer feel like long lost friends.  This eatery usually serves the business crowd (hence the opening hours), but is open on Saturdays as well.

Why go?
 Fava Bean Pita, Falafel Pita, Koshari Rice

5th Tanaka Vegetarian Food
Chicken Rice ($3.00) - The rice is so incredibly fragrant.

Life can be tough for vegetarians living in the West of Singapore.  But you can take comfort in knowing that arguably the best vegetarian stall exists in the West.  Mr Goh has been successfully running vegetarian stalls in Singapore for over 30 years now - But it is his Tanaka stall which is his most successful.  Both Mr Goh and his wife work meticulously to ensure all food served to customers is as faultless as possible.  This stall even gives away free food to all customers on certain days of the year, as they believe giving is far more rewarding than receiving.  One rare occasions they serve their famous nasi briyani, which is probably the best, if not one of the best dishes I have ever eaten in my life!

Why go?
 Chicken Rice, Nasi Briyani, Roasted Meat Rice, Hokkien Mee, Satay Bee Hoon

4th Murugan Idli Shop
The amazing Masala Dosai ($3.60), the potato masala is so amazing I almost cried.

Although you might think that the must order dish at Murugan is their idli - You would be wrong.  Murugan has (in my opinion) the best masala dosai in Singapore, amazing.  Having said that, it is of course worth order their idli, which is what they are most famous for.  The dosai is fermented to the point of being slightly sour, it is crispy yet chewy at the same time.  But what is most amazing is the potato masala in the center - It has the texture of mashed potatoes almost, and is packed with amazing flavour.  I am salivating just thinking about their amazingly sinful food.

Why go?
 Masala Dosai, Idli, Ghee Podi Idli, Medhu Vadai

3rd Nature Vegetarian Delights
Spicy and sour, lip-smacking Banana Leaf Sambal Fish ($12.00)

In third place is this delightful Chinese vegetarian restaurant, 10 minutes walk from Serangoon station. The dish I adore the most from here is the claypot pig's trotter, the blend of vinegar, ginger, sugar is just delightful, and it has one of the best mock trotters that I have ever tried. Their banana leaf sambal fish is also incredible.  This restaurant has recently moved from its old location to Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre. Although prices may seem a little steep, it is well worth it.

 Sambal Fish Hotplate, Claypot Pig's Trotter, Olive Fried Rice

2nd Divine Realm Vegetarian Restaurant
Consistently one of the best Chinese dishes I have ever eaten, the Sambal Petai with Eggplant ($10.00)
 If you want to consume truly the best Chinese vegetarian food in Singapore, then I have no doubt in my mind that Divine Realm is the place you must go.  There are so many excellent dishes to try, that you really can't go wrong.  Although a little inconvenient to get to, I can guarantee it won't be a wasted journey.  Whatever your fancy, whether it be rice, noodles, tze char vegetables, soups etc - You will find it here, and it is almost always excellent quality.

1st Gokul Vegetarian Restaurant

The classic North Indian curry Malai Kofta ($8.50)

There wasn't much of a debate as to which was coming first. Since first writing this article back in 2010, Gokul has remained on the number 1 spot consistently for over six years now. It is a place I must have gone to around 50 times, and everytime I am in awe of how good the food is. The menu is vast, and having tried almost everything on it, I can honestly say every dish I have tried is above average - That is quite a feat. What's more impressive, is all dishes are without onion and garlic and 75% of their dishes are totally vegan.  This is not just an Indian restaurant.  The menu has over 500 dishes, from all cuisines such as Malay, Chinese, Indian, Thai and Western.  This is one of the best restaurants in the world, you simply must go and experience it.

Why go?
 Chicken Tandoori Tikka, Palak Paneer, Baingan Bartha, Butter Chicken Masala, Malai Kofta, Chicken Kurma, Ayam Mesak Merah, Mysore Mutton, Char Kway Teow, Chicken Rice

    I am also hoping to be able to post more places for you all, however with my current work load I am sadly struggling. So for the time being, I may only be restricted to post once per week.

    Good idea about taking a picture of the menus! I will consider that for future posts!

  7. Hi Luke, Good reviews there.

    But I see some non-vegetarian dishes such as Chicken Tandoori Tikka, Sardine Curry Puff, Butter Chicken Masala, Chicken Kurma, Chicken rice, Hainanese Beef Stew listed under 'Why go?'..Are you referring to mock meat? Else how are these dishes figuring in top veggie restaurants??

  8. Hi Anonymous!

    You've assumed correctly! Everything on my blog is either vegetarian or vegan. Therefore, the dishes that you mention, yes, they will be mock meats!

  13. Yes finally I tried the chicken rice on the second visit. After the first bite, I stopped eating a while coz I'm amazed with the texture of the "chicken", it is really a work of art to be able to invent such texture using gluten. However I am not really a fan of gluten so I can't rank this highly in my list. I also tried and preferred the fried one coz the gluten texture is masked by the crisp of the skin.

    The rice itself is ok, but I still prefer the rice at Lotus (Quality hotel) and Grace Court (Royal@Queens Hotel, they called it ginger rice and need 1 day advance notice). Of course we are talking about different price range there.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey Suhendra!

    I'm also someone that doesn't really like the gluten derived mock meat. There is actually a place that has better chicken rice in the Tai Seng/Paya Lebar area, but that is also made of gluten!

    You seem to spek very highly of Lotus, I have yet to go there myself, so I will put it on my list of places to go!

    Thanks for your constant support and comments!

  17. Hi,

    Just discovered your blog. Great stuff! Quick question: can you direct me to restaurants that serf gluten-free options (i.e. tofu)? Also, many 'vegetarian' restaurants have things like 'shark fin soup' on their menus. How do you make sure you are ordering 100% (NO animal products, no fish sauce, no shrimp paste, etc.) vegetarian food?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hey notabilia,

    Glad that you have discovered and are enjoying my website!

    To answer your questions in reverse order -

    All the vegetarian eateries in Singapore are run by strict vegetarians, and therefore the chances of there being meat either intentionally or accidentally in the food is extremely slim. Moreover, the restaurants/stalls are run almost entirely by Buddhist or Hindu devotees - These categories of vegetarian never consume fish, therefore you won't find any vegetarian restaurants in Singapore that cater for pescetarian (fish, but no other meat) based diets. So, again, fish sauce or whatever, there is no chance you will be served it.

    Regarding your first question, this may be a little more tricky for me to answer. To my knowledge there are no vegetarian/vegan establishments in Singapore that claim to be gluten free. Perhaps some health food stalls/restaurants might not serve gluten. I am sure that in all vegetarian eateries there are many dishes which you could select that would be gluten free, I think this may be the only option...Sorry if I couldn't be more helpful on that!

    Thanks for your support!

    Luke

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you so much for your reply, Luke. I avoided so many of these stalls because I wasn't sure if they were "strict" vegetarian (no animal products, in my case). Now, I can eat free!

    Was just curious about the gluten-free thing. I prefer tofu rather than mock-meat but it's not a necessity.

    Adding your wonderful blog to my reader. And if you fancy a tea/coffee with a fellow blogger, do shoot me an email. I am keen to meat like-minded folks on this tiny island!

  26. Hey! I saw the comment on restaurants which do not use gluten. You may want to try Whole Earth (76 Peck Seah St, http://www.wholeearth.com.sg) they use mostly mushrooms and I'm not very sure but if I'm not wrong they don't use gluten. I'm actually quite surprised that there's no review on Whole Earth!

  27. Hey RJ,

    I called Whole Earth to make double sure that they don't have any gluten dishes, and indeed you're right, they say most of their menu is gluten free. However, they recommend people who have gluten allergies not to order some dishes from their menu, as they contain rice flour.

    I do have a review on Whole Earth, which I did a couple of years ago, I will leave the link below for you.

      I live in Sengkang, so you've definitely asked the right person.

      Unfortunately Sengkang/Punggol is quite a morbid place for vegetarian food. However, there is one fantastic place - It is called Waterdrop Teahouse, located about 7 minutes away from Punggol MRT. It is located inside a Buddhist temple.

      You can take a look at my 'Punggol' and 'Sengkang' sections on the right hand side of my blog for more details on veggie places in those areas. :)

  45. Great resource for a vegetarian like me. I have been in Singapore for nearly 7 years and haven't tried or heard about many of these places. So discovering this blog has given me a whole list of places to try out.

    Have you been to Sichuan Dou Hua (Beach Road branch at Plaza Park Royal)? They have a dedicated vegetarian menu as well as a number of vegetarian dishes in the normal menu. In my opinion their food is materially better than a number of names in your top 10 (at least the ones I have tried e.g. Vegetarian Era). Of course given the prices you would expect that - expect to pay $25-30pp for a group of 4.

    Their Kung Pao (mock) Chicken is killer! One of my favourite dishes anywhere, ever. Other recommended dishes are Sichuan Chilled Noodles, Sichuan Dan Dan Noodle, Stir Fried French Beans and Mapo Tofu. All are either available as vegetarian or can be made so on request.

    Also, if you haven't, try Thunder Tea Rice at Lau Pa Sat or Suntec City. Be sure to mix the soy sauce, chili sauce and the soup in the rice - it can be a bit bland without the sauces.

    Hopefully you will like both of these. They are far and away my favorite vegetarian discoveries in Singapore.

    1. Hey Apoorv,

      Thanks for the kind words about my blog, I am very pleased that it has been useful for you.

      I haven't tried the places that you mentioned in your comment. I have eaten at some non-100% vegetarian places before (reviewed them also) - But I got feedback that people would rather me review just 100% vegetarian places only. This is coupled by the fact that I also don't really like going to non-100% vegetarian places, mainly cause I don't trust whether these 'vegetarian' dishes have been cross-contaminated with meat or not. But I will consider trying those dishes you mentioned, as they sound delicious!

      Thanks once again for your comment!

  47. Hi Hungry Ang Mo!

    Thanks for the recommendations! I have been to most of those places and they were great! There's a vegetarian restaurant in Holland Village, called Original Sin, you should check it out too! It's pretty awesome!

    1. Hey spicerover,

      Yes I agree that New Green Pasture Cafe is also a really fantastic veggie eatery!

      It was one of the first ever vegetarian places I visited in Singapore, so always brings back fond memories.

    1. Hey Sarah,

      Thanks so much for bookmarking my blog, hopefully it will prove very useful for you whilst staying in Singapore. Singapore actually has thousands for 100% vegetarian places, it is just a matter of knowing where they are (which can be difficult) - I will strive to blog about more and more places all over Singapore, so life can be easier for the vegetarians and vegans living here!

    1. Hey prgati,

      These items are MOCK meat, they are not real meat - Usually they are using mushroom, soy or gluten to replicate meat. Thanks!
