    1 / 8 Boneless Kitchen

    With World Vegan Day coming up on Nov 1, we have rounded up the best places for vegan food. Leading the way is Boneless Kitchen.

    If you’re hankering after some spicy, tangy, umami laden kimchi or a bubbling pot of Korean army stew, give Boneless Kitchen a try and be amazed by how delicious vegetarian Korean food can be!

    Tucked away in an industrial estate in Tai Seng is this pocket-friendly restaurant, which serves a huge variety of Korean dishes, such as dolsot bibimbap (mixed vegetables in a hot bowl), mock Odeng (fish cakes), Dubu Jorim (spicy braised tofu) and Kimbap (Korean rice rolls). Fans rave about their mock meats — and almost everything is made from scratch, in-house.

  • Green Dot 
    2 / 8 Green Dot 

    Green Dot’s many outlets often see queues at meal times and we can see why.

    Its concept of vegetarian/vegan “bento rice”, where customers get to mix and match from a variety of dishes and pair it with brown rice, is both affordable and delicious and particularly popular with the health-conscious office crowd.

    Think sides like braised mushrooms, tofu, wakame seaweed, tender eggplant, mock meats, and more! Psst, its Mushroom Rendang is the bomb.

    3 / 8 Afterglow by Anglow 

    European-style vegan dining with a strong emphasis on sustainable and seasonal produce is what makes Afterglow at Keong Saik a star. More than just vegan, Afterglow also promotes the raw food movement, so mock meats are out. Try its raw desserts like Chocolate Banana “Cream” and raw cheesecakes – they are so good – and good for you!

  • Real Food
    4 / 8 Real Food

    This is the place to go if you’re looking for the very latest and vegan hipster trends — think plant-based drinks like Ginger Beetroot Kefir, Soy Turmeric Latte and the dairy-free Vanilla Quinoa Milk.

    Savoury dishes worth mentioning include creamy Mushroom Soy Carbonara and signature Dumpling Noodles. Real Food is also a grocer so you can pick up some hard-to-find health foods.

  • Joie Restaurant by DOZO 
    5 / 8 Joie Restaurant by DOZO 

    We’re surprised that not many people know about this wonderful fine-dining Japanese vegetarian/vegan-friendly set-up — it’s excellent for delicate, delicious food in a posh, zen-like environment.

    The multi-course menus change with the season and feature whimsical fusion dishes like a vegetarian tempura platter, mushroom hot pot and an exotic “tartare” platter with ingredients like sea grapes that will impress and delight.

  • Loving Hut 
    6 / 8 Loving Hut 

    A cruelty-free vegan restaurant that caters to a distinctly local palate, Loving Hut is well known for meatless takes on Peranakan and Singaporean food. Laksa here is particularly popular and fans say it packs a really “lemak” punch, complete with gravy drenched tau pok (tofu puffs). Other popular dishes include vegan rendang and vegan “oyster” omelette.

  • Brownice Italian Vegan Ice Cream & Kitchen
    7 / 8 Brownice Italian Vegan Ice Cream & Kitchen

    Guilt-free ice cream that’s also dairy-free? Yes please! Many vegans in Singapore lament the lack of fresh vegan ice cream (beyond the supermarket) and that’s where Brownice comes in.

    The local vegan Italian ice cream bar serves vegan ice cream made from organic brown rice milk — no dairy, no eggs, no artificial chemicals, and with less than 3% fat per scoop.

    Flavours range from the more common Nutella and Strawberry to local-inspired Gila Gula Melaka and Coconut. We found it satisfying, if not as creamy and smooth as dairy ice cream. But hey, its guilt-free!

    Feeling peckish? The cafe also serves a selection of vegan Italian food with its ice creams.

    #01-03, Sin Ming Centre, 8 Sin Ming Road; tel: 6456-6431; http://brownice.weebly.com/

  • VeganBurg 
    8 / 8 VeganBurg 

    If you’re a fast food fiend and you think vegan food has no appeal for you — think again.

    VeganBurg, Singapore’s first vegan burger and fast food joint, draws both vegans and the omnivorous with its extensive menu of juicy fat burgers, crisp fries, and a whole menu of “sidekicks” such as Shroom Pops with sambal mayo and White Truffle Fries.

    Each burger is stacked and bursting with layers and feature mostly a plant-based GMO-free patty, fresh vegetables and special sauces. They are customisable with add-ones such as vegan bacon, vegan cheese, plant-based eggs, and avocado.

    VeganBurg’s tofu-based sausages with barbecue sauce are a hit with kids, and we hear that fans always go for seconds of its creamy, savoury cracked mayo dip (which are egg and dairy free!). Please note that garlic is used in the dishes.
