One of the better Japanese vegetarian restaurants in town

Teng is a Japanese vegetarian restaurant opened last year in Sunshine Plaza that is similar in concept to Herbivore just across the road – think vegetarian / vegan replicas of mostly common Japanese dishes (along with some Singaporean Chinese dishes) and simple, pleasant deco. No eggs, onion or garlic are used but dairy is used – in particular, vegans should watch out for mayo in the sushi. Service was efficient and helpful.

Japanese Yam

Slices of crunchy, subtly sweet, raw Japanese yam, served with a light shoyu-based sauce and topped with seaweed, made for a light and refreshing starter. ($5)

King Mushroom

The firm, chewy and meaty king oyster mushroom strips were perfectly complemented by sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce. Recommended. ($10)

Five Kind Sashimi

...the Five Kind Sashimi plate is an assortment of mock tuna, salmon, shrimp, squid and abalone. The mock tuna, salmon and squid, made from mung bean powder, mostly differed in terms of their food colouring, and they were barely distinguishable in terms of taste and consistency. Like the mock shrimp, they resembled softer versions of fish cake. The mock abalone was a bit chewier and was a tad too salty. All in all, the sashimi wasn’t particularly impressive and certainly not worth the price. One could try it for the novelty but don’t expect much. ($32)

Avocado Maki

Sushi roll with mock tuna, cucumber and mock prawn, topped with avocado. This tasted as unexceptional as it looked. It was also very disappointing that the restaurant did not bother to use sushi rice for any of its dishes. Vegans should take note that this usually comes with mayo. ($12)

Unagi Maki

This fared much better than the avocado maki – avocado and cucumber rice rolls were topped with soft and slightly crispy mock unagi, and topped with sweet unagi sauce. ($12)

Mix Vege Tempura

Tempura made with fairly fresh sweet potato, eggplant, enoki and shitake mushrooms, and – best of all – crunchy lotus root. The tempura ought to have been crispier, but it was commendable effort nonetheless. ($9)

Paper Claypot

The paper claypot came with mostly soy-based products (like mock squid balls, dumpling, and mock prawn) with some lettuce, cabbage, carrot and enoki mushrooms in a vegetable broth.  ($13)

Mix Vegetables with Tofu (Hot Plate)

Firm tofu with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, tri-colour strips of capsicum, tomatoes and shimeji and black fungus mushroom, served in a light yet flavourful sauce. ($10)

Conclusion: I found Teng Bespoke to be superior to Herbivore. Go for the dishes made with more natural, whole foods, which were far more interesting and palatable than any of the processed faux sashimi / seafood.

niece bought dinner this evening on 21.4.2016. ^^

the radish salad was a great start. it was refreshing & good for 7pax. the goma (sesame) sauce was light & quite perfect. radish was crunchy. 

didn’t think much of the black sesame yu tofu.

king mushrooms was one of the recommended dish. it was pretty good.

nice mushroom taste, good texture & great condiments.

niece ordered a nabe dish. there were like 5 or maybe 6 dumplings. pretty ok too.

soup was plain, good taste.

wife ordered a tomato spring roll. i like this wonderful dish, crispy skin, very tasty spring roll, simply excellent!

niece ordered a mushroom tempura. it was very good too, not like the usual tempura at all, more like a korokke (croquette).

it was nice…i loved the cheese!

the avogado maki was ok, pretty good actually. still i like the usual maki a whole lot better, so in the sense just like mock sashimi, i would rather have the real thing la…:-)

it was a very enjoyable get together.

dinner was S$110 for 7pax.

Lousy customer service

Its the second time visit to this restaurant on 24 Jan 2016. Despite with its high price side on the food, we still bring our vegetarian friend to go and try. The restaurant is full on Sunday with a few empty tables occupied by reservation tag. We also waited when this pinoy waitress told us to. After aorund 15 mins of waited, she seated the guests behind us first instead of we are the first in the waiting queue. Subsequently, we wish to place our order once seated cause we have decided what we want while waiting in the queue, she also served the later customer first before us despite we calling her and her colleague few times. Very bad service and lousy in prioritizing the guest follow the sequence. We end up leave the restaurant without ordering and decide not to go back again.

try once

the outlet is spacious with front and back seating areas. the service is quite good and fast. overall dining experience was quite delightful. a little expensive for the quality of food. the quantity is quite a lot though. the looks and presentation of food is beautiful and looks very appetising. however the quality is not very high. must go in bigger group so as to try different dishes. the signature sashimi plate looks gorgeous but all pieces taste the same. to be specific, no taste. i was rather excited to try it but is disappointed by the taste.

celebrated my dad's 60th birthday with a party of 6 adults and 3 children. Staff accommodated our request to sit us somewhere quieter and more private, with enough space to accommodate our strollers. Folks love the texture of the buckwheat noodle and the unagi maki.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I had such a delicious meal and I can't wait to go back for a another round!
Never thought that vegetarian food could taste so good, let alone vegetarian Japanese dishes.

For those who have a misconception that vegetarian food is oily and too floury, try Teng Bespoke. You'll be super amazed.
