Where do you want to go?

Fancy Vegetarian Stall, Orchard

Finding vegan food in Orchard is tough, especially anything under $20. Enter, Fancy Vegetarian Stall. There is nothing particularly fancy about this hawker stall, but its cheap and surprisingly tasty! And right in the heart of Orchard. I will definitely be going back here.

Downstairs in Lucky Plaza, not in the main food court but the smaller one, “Lucky Food Center” also in the basement.

Mon – Sat – 6.30am-6pm

Ah Balling – Closed

Ah Balling is a small cart stall on Smith Street, selling “Ah Balling”, which are glutinous rice balls stuffed with various fillings, and served in peanut or ginger soup. These are quite tasty, and while not quite a full meal they are more filling than they look. The peanut soup is good and the ginger soup is also good but quite strong, great if you’re looking for an immune system booster.

The chocolate ones are probably not vegan but the rest of the fillings are.

They are just S$2 for 5 balls in soup, and open late, till around 22:00

One of only 2 vegan options on Smith Street, Chinatown. Walk from CHinatown MRT Station.

Choo Zai Zhai Vegetarian Food, Macpherson

The food court at 79/a Circut Road, Macpherson, is pretty popular and kind of “famous” in Singapore. There is at least one decent vegetarian option there, and that is Choo Zai Zhai Vegetarian Food. They have a pretty good range, big portions, and average cost. The food is OK but is a bit of a random location so I wouldn’t especially head there, but if you find yourself at Macpherson, this is your best bet! Open late too which is great. Roughly S$3-7 per dish.

Short walk from Macpherson MRT Station.
Daily 11:00 ~ 23:00

Pangat Authentic Indian Cuisine

While Pangat at Vivo City is not totally vegetarian (some meat served), about half of the dishes are vegan. It’s one of the very few options for vegetarians and vegans inside Vivo City. Its also quite good Indian food, especially from a small hawker, and good value at S$4.50 for a big portion of rice and 3 veg.

Dishes can be a little spicy (but still hold lots of flavor), so if you don’t like it hot, or if you are not sure which dishes are vegan, just ask them. I eat here every time I’m at Vivo City.

When entering Vivo City from HarbourFront MRT, turn right and go inside Kopitiam (left side).
Open daily till around 21:00~

Su Man Yuan Vegetarian @ People’s Park Centr …

There are actually 3 Vegetarian stalls at the food court in People’s Park Centre (B1), one of which is my favorite hawker in Chinatown, and one of my favorite in Singapore. As well as menu options like pineapple fried rice & claypot tofu, they have a large buffet selection, including pumpkin, curry, multiple tofu and mock meat types. The guy that runs it is quite friendly, and its the only vegetarian hawker in China Town open past 7pm.

Contrary to most vegetarian hawkers, the free soup here is actually worth taking. It’s tasty and has real vegetables, like corn cob and soybeans.

Su Man Yuan Vegetarian, in the basement food court of People’s Park Centre, The back left corner. There is an exit from Chinatown MRT directly to the centre.

Daily 08:30 ~ 21:30

Big Bites

Big Bites is a small chain of Indian restaurants/stalls that are either stand-alone or attached to Hawker Centres. The menu is extensive,including various snack foods. But there seems to be a problem with consistency, with many other reviews stating the same. For me, the food is sometimes just far too spicy. Maybe my tolerance isn’t high enough, but when spice overrides flavor, I’m not a fan.

Big Bites is worth a try, there are several branches around and open relatively late so it is a good option for a late dinner, just get a drink to go with it!

Branches open daily, roughly – 08:30 ~ 22:30
