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.”

The kitchen is helmed by a pair of partner chefs, Addis Tan and Dylan who have 20 years of experience working for established F&B names such as Tippling Club, Esquina and Cheek by Jowl.
Any Singaporean who has not visited Mustafa—a glorious 24-hour megamall in Little India— is certainly losing out big time. With six different entrances, it takes a certain level of skill to navigate the madness within.
