Well Dressed Salad Bar

Well Dressed Salad bar lets you design your own salad bowls, but they offer far more, with other tasty and healthy options, right in the heart of Chinatown. The tofu burger is my fave, with vegan (tofu) fetta cheese, there’s also curry and soba. However We first stopped at Well Dressed after spotting the vegan cakes and cute Donuts out front, (they are working on gluten-free options too!). Not everything is vegan but most items have the option. Service is also super friendly.

Close to Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, at the end of Smith Street, a short walk from Chinatown MRT Station.

Green Dot

Green Dot offers a mix of Healthy Vegetarian Asian and Western inspired dishes, in a sort of healthy-fast-food format. At the top of Paya Lebar Square, Green dot is bright and cheerful, and busy every time we visit. The new branch at WestGate is also popular and a needed addition to the west side. They have some tasty food on offer, including Bento sets, Mushroom Pots, Salads, Burgers and Curries. They also have a Tea Bar, and desserts from Delcie’s and Brown Rice Ice Cream! The ice-cream cakes are quite good.

It seems like the owners are still figuring this place out a little, adjusting the menu and slightly confused over which meals are and are not vegan, dairy vs coconut milk etc, but they are trying. They were welcome to suggestions and feed back and they have updated their menus once already and added a vegan burger. So just check when ordering to be sure.

Daily 11:00 ~ 22:00

Whole Earth

I’m not sure why it took me so long to visit this place, but I should have gone much sooner. Whole Earth is a Thai-Peranakan restaurant. The service is very good, some of the best service I’ve seen in Singapore. Friendly staff, knowledgeable, efficient, food delivered together etc. The menu is large and the food is tasty. We got hooked by the pumpkin-glutinous-rice dessert! Overall a great experience and I will definitely visit again.

Dishes range from S$10-30, desserts around S$5.
Right near Tanjong Pagar MRT.

Delcie’s Cakes

There are a few cafes offering vegan and even gluten free cake slices in Singapore, but at Delcie’s its their specialty. All of the cakes are vegan, and they have options for diabetics (no added sugar), gluten free and without nuts too! The cakes themselves are quite rich and can be a little heavy, but very tasty (I’ve only tried the gluten free ones). You can buy whole cakes at various sizes, cupcakes, cookies etc.

They come well presented in portable packaging, and you can get custom text, images, candles etc when ordering. You can even order it frozen so you can collect early and let it thaw overnight for optimum freshness. Get it delivered or pick up at Boon Keng.

Warning these cakes are not cheap, prices ranging from S$40 for 5×5″ vegan cake up to S$250 for 10×10″ gluten free version. But vegan gluten-free cakes aren’t that easy to come by, especially at this quality. So if you feel like splurging for a birthday check out the big range on offer here. And of course cupcakes and Muffins etc are obviously cheaper and good for single desserts.

Boneless Kitchen

Korean Vegetarian in Singapore! Right next to Nature Vegetarian, near IKEA, is Boneless Kitchen. They have both a Korean and Italian Menu to select from, with some interesting takes on Bibimbap, veggie toppoki, kimchi pancakes and more. The Glass noodles were good and the pan fried tofu was simple yet tasty. The menu clearly states which options are vegan, which contain egg etc.

If you like Korean food, or haven’t had the chance to try it because of a lack of options, here’s your chance! The Italian is probably good too but am yet to try it.

Tues – Sun 11.30 ~ 21:00
Mon – Closed

Closest MRT Station is Red Hill. From there, cross the road and take bus 33 to IKEA and continue walking along Alexandra Road. Turn left at the intersection onto Jalan Bukit Merah. Boneless Kitchen is on the left at the small carpark.

Living Cafe & Deli

Living Cafe is a great cafe with lots of Raw, Vegan and Gluten-Free options! It is not entirely vegetarian but the range on offer is pretty good. The vegan tofu burger and wedges were great and they have a few v-g-f cakes too! The staff weren’t all that knowledgeable on item specifics but they are friendly and happy enough to check with the chef. The cafe has a chilled atmosphere with a lot of space and light.

Take a bus from Botanic Gardens MRT, or its a 30min walk from there.

Afterglow

Afterglow Raw “Vegan” restaurant in Chinatown. I put the vegan in “” because while they claim to be a vegan cafe, many of their items include honey, and this is not mentioned unless you ask. I found this out for one item after it had already been served, which is quite annoying.

Although they are open late, the kitchen closes much earlier and so I could only try a dessert and a cocktail, both quite expensive for what they were. I may try once more when the kitchen is fully open, but in no big rush.
