33 Vegetarian Chicken Rice from @redwingx82

Meat-free chicken rice? You best believe it. 33 Vegetarian’s best-selling chicken rice tastes like the real deal. Their Healthy Vegetarian Chicken Rice set (S$6.80) lets you choose between steamed or roasted chicken, and comes with soup, achar and oyster sauce greens.

If you ask us, we’d take the steamed chicken any day. Made from seitan, or wheat gluten, it looks and tastes like actual chicken. We don’t know what’s going on in the kitchen but there is definitely some vegetarian sorcery going on in there.

A familiar name in the vegetarian community, Gokul Vegetarian Restaurant has one of the most diverse menus we’ve ever seen. You’ve got traditional Indian eats alongside local delights, such as Mee Rebus (S$8.50) and Char Kway Teow (S$8).

One of the must-tries here is the Gokul Special Hokkien Mee (S$8). Three types of noodles — yellow mee, bee hoon and kway teow — are tossed in a fragrant house-made sauce and served with fiery chili sauce. Vegetarian or not, you’re bound to be a convert after a meal here.

Kwan Inn Vegetarian Laksa from FB @kwanninn.vegetarian

With over six outlets islandwide, Kwan Inn Vegetarian is definitely one to watch in the local vegetarian food scene. While they pledge themselves to serving healthful, wholesome fare, rest assured that taste is not compromised over here.

While vegetarian laksa isn’t the most groundbreaking concept, Kwan Inn Vegetarian’s rendition is in a whole other league altogether. Swapping out the coconut milk for soy milk, its broth is a lot lighter on the palatable and won’t have you feeling like you just downed five packets of coconut milk in one sitting.

Loving Hut O-Luak from FB @lovinghutsg

We can already hear the scoffers — “Oyster- and egg-free orh luak? That’s like ordering chicken rice with no chicken and no rice”. Well, you all won’t be laughing once you have a taste of Loving Hut’s surreal creation. Their Vegan O-Luak is fried to a glorious crisp and harbours delicate chewiness within.

Apart from this dish, their menu houses a trove of other hawker delights. Think laksa, mee siam and — get this — char siew. We are quaking.

Nature Cafe Wanton Mee from FB @naturecafe.com.sg

Nature Cafe has certainly upped the stakes with their overwhelming variety of nosh. Get swept off your feet by the flood of dishes in store, some of which you didn’t even know could be made vegetarian.

With every turn of the page, we’re astounded by what we find. Rojak (S$6.50) and Satay (S$9)? Check. They even have Kuey Chap (S$6.50). Don’t ask us how. Just eat.

New Fut Kai Vegetarian from FB @newfutkai

If you’re looking for a classier spot for a family celebration, New Fut Kai is a pretty good bet. This restaurant is more than ready to entertain your zi char impulses, whether you’re feeling for some yam ring or cereal prawns. Go big with their “suckling pig”, which is outrageously good.

But, if your palate is crying out for simpler fare, they have the usual wanton mee and lor mee.

A jack of all trades and a master of many, Sauté-San refuses to be confined to a singular cuisine. Their menu is a mix of Japanese, Western, Italian and local influences, with pizzas and udons sharing the spotlight.

But, one page of their menu, in particular, has got our heart racing. It’s an entire section dedicated to orh-luak, with vegetarian and vegan selections. Kimchi and Mala Orh Luak already sound like great combos, but they’ve raised the bar even higher with their Orh Luak Okonomiyaki. Damn, son.

Tanaka Vegetarian from @qriexz


With a rotational menu that changes every day, you’d better make sure you visit Tanaka Vegetarian on the right day if you’re after a particular dish. But, even if you didn’t, you’ll probably like what you get.

Tanaka Vegetarian does some really legit food, with mainstays on their menu including Fishball Noodle (S$3.50) and Roast Pork Rice (S$3.50). If you happen to be there on the day they have Chicken Rice (S$3.50), get it.

Victor Veggie Satay from @cancerian_jen

If you simply handed us a plate of Victor Veggie’s satay and otah, we’d wipe it clean without batting an eyelid. The man behind this stall is, you guessed it, Mr Victor. He has been in the vegetarian hawker trade for over 40 years, and it certainly shows in his food.

Smoky, charred and slightly sweet, his satay skewers (S$0.80/stick, min. 10 sticks) can barely be told apart from its meaty counterparts. It’s not surprising that they usually sell out by dinner, so fastest fingers first.

Yi Xin Vegetarian from @hungry_monkey_yeah

You’ll probably find as many vegetarian spots as you’ll find tourists in the Chinatown area. Yi Xin Vegetarian may look like just another one of them but you’d be very wrong to undermine them.

Their Vegetarian Laksa is an absolute powerhouse, brimming with coconut fragrance and heaped with toppings such as fried beancurd skin and crunchy greens. Healthier folks can opt for their herbal Bak Kut Teh which is comfort food for the soul.
