Let’s yum cha! Dim sum has traditionally been a popular choice for communal meals in Singapore. Whether you are dining with family or friends, sharing steaming baskets of bite-sized goodies is a fantastic way to encourage bonding.
Unfortunately, this activity becomes less accessible when accommodating for vegetarian family members and friends. Even for popular Chinese restaurant chains, their vegetarian dim sum selection tends to be uninspired, and is sparse at best.
To maintain the spirit of dining together, here is a list of restaurants that offer a more robust menu of vegetarian dim sum items, and are led by chefs with sufficient imagination and skill to recreate non-vegetarian dishes into original vegetarian alternatives.
By serving up palatable vegetarian dishes, these places prove that meatless doesn’t mean tasteless!
Based on a recent research finding, it concludes that Singaporeans are consuming well below the recommended serving of vegetables in our diet.
Those pathetic slices of cucumber with our chicken rice? Definitely not enough. Yet while vegetarian and vegan cuisines are growing in popularity, the general mindset towards our leafy greens are still “Huh? No meat? No thanks.”
We hope that with this list of casual vegetarian eateries in Singapore that won’t have your wallet take a beating, we could change your mind about meatless cuisine—however feeble the attempt you may think it is.
Chinese New Year is one festival that all of us Chinese people look forward to the most every year. It is an occasion of feasting, non-stop celebration and sheer exuberance; Lunar New Year is a time for a reunion with family and loved ones.
This joyous occasion is ultimately a celebration of family, hence gatherings with family and relatives around the dining table are a common sight. While it is commonplace for families to slug it out days before through the preparation and actual cooking, it definitely draws out the joy out of the festivities. This year, save yourself the trouble and effort of preparing everything from scratch by indulging in TungLok’s takeaway offerings.
What you can expect from the colossal brand this year is nothing short of grandeur for your family to luxuriate in—minus the hassle of cooking and washing up, of course. Their competitive prices make them a distinguished option for all home parties but rest assure that the quality of their food goes above and beyond their price point.
