My Vegetarian Way - Raffles Place
My Vegetarian Way
Location: #03-24, 50 Market Street (Golden Shoe Market & Food Centre)
Opening Hours: Mon-Fri 8.00am-3.30pm. Weekends closed.
Brown Rice Porridge. This porridge tasted...Healthy. Ok, I admit it, Chinese porridge probably ranks bottom of my list of dishes that I crave for. With that being said, this porridge manages to capture a quite delightful creamy texture (all the more impressive as it is vegan). The taste is subtle, and may be considered bland by some. But personally it was pretty enjoyable overall - That is saying a lot coming from me.
Price: $1.50. 7/10
Fried Hor Fun. No, don't adjust your screens, the picture is indeed fried hor fun. The chef at My Vegetarian Way has done their best to make this dish as healthy as conceivably possible. It is not fried, and a great deal of fresh crunchy vegetables have been added inside. This dish should be eaten immediately upon serving, when it is fresh. It is another dish which has very subtle flavours, but it goes perfectly with the pumpkin chilli (see below), which customers can help themselves to at the front of the stall.
Price: $3.50. 7/10
Lei Cha. This Hakka dish, also known as 'thunder tea rice' is by default extremely healthy. It is a dish that allows the natural flavour of the ingredients to shine. Rather than relying on salt, MSG and other harmful flavour enhancers. Lei cha is one of my girlfriends favourite dishes, so I'm often coaxed into ordering it when out and about. I've slowly started to gain a greater appreciation for this dish. But irregardless of taste, this is a dish we should all be eating on a regular basis, to increase our overall health and longevity.
Price: $4.00. 7/10
Conclusion - It is important that customers who visit My Vegetarian Way adjust their expectations. Yes, the food may seem bland to many of us - Because we have been brought up our entire lives eating strong tasting foods. We need to go back to simplicity, and this stall is a great example of how to do that. If every typical bee hoon/rice and dishes vegetarian stall in Singapore was replaced with stalls like My Vegetarian Way, the country would definitely be a healthier and better place.
