12 Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Singapore That Serve Delicious Meat-Free and Sustainable Meals

12 Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in Singapore That Serve Delicious Meat-Free and Sustainable Meals

Just because these menus don’t feature meat, doesn’t mean the food on offer isn’t scrumptious – but for vegetarians and vegans reading this, I’m sure you already knew this. 

From beautifully plated haute gastronomie style  cuisine, to local favourites and flavours from around the world, they all look to Mother Nature to take care of our bodies and what we put in them – as well as ensuring we’re conscious eaters whilst we’re at it.

1.  Singapore’s first Meditterranean Restaurant: Original Sin

Dishes on this menu to delight your veggie palette include a whole roasted cauliflower – if you’ve never tried this dish before now’s the time – Halloumi, Mezze platters, Moussaka and Spanakopita!

One thing we love about eating anything vegetarian or vegan is that our tummies always thank us afterwards, and we can feel it in our mood too – oftentimes eating meat makes you feel sluggish/lethargic.
