Organic food and veganism are slowly gaining a foothold on our tiny island, and I, too, am trying to steer my diet towards veganism for environmental reasons. Real Food is an organic vegetarian restaurant that can match to your personal diet, be it meat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, or garlic/onion-free.
Slouch couches by the shelves for some reading up on nutrition, health and veganism in both English and Chinese.
Brown rice set.
Rise-n-Shine breakfast. Saw many others having their dumpling soup, which I’d love to try on my next trip.
Ended it off with a dairy-free vegan ice-cream, which was whee-bit pricey. Friends of soy ice-cream may want to try Soyato at Bugis Junction too.

It seems stretched, but it’s true. Going vegan saves the earth. Forests and plants are earth’s natural air purifier, yet we removes large areas of these to grow grains for rearing livestock, which contributes more greenhouse gases than all our vehicles added together.
But being carnal, I can’t give up my meat just yet, so practicing Meatless Monday is my flagday contribution to ease some guilt and maybe lift some load of our planet.
VeganBurg is an organic vegan outlet that believes in quality, wholesome food. Its Hawaiian Pineapple burg is tasty, tangy and guilt-free satisfaction.

Mocha latte, National Geographic Cafe.
Olive fried rice at Honzen. Tasty vegan meals at very affordable prices. Also recommended is their Rendang Curry Rice.
A lovely plate of fried olive rice which goes down well just by itself!
Monkeyhead mushrooms with broccoli, which is good actually. Pity it pales in comparison to the other dishes.
Nonya Curry. The bursts of rich curry flavor. Oooh. Better than the real deal.
