A coffeeshop selling only vegetarian meals, Nature Vegetarian Delights is located along Sin Ming Avenue.
Over the past few years, I think Vegetarian Cuisine is going mainstream and heading toward the same general acceptance as other cuisines such as Japanese Food, Korean Food ...
The number of vegetarian eateries continues to rise, very diversify and adding colour to our food culture here. So, is the vegetarian population growing or vegetarian food is getting popular?
Nature Vegetarian Delights @ Sin Ming Ave has turned an entire Coffeeshop into a very Unique Feature! The Whole Coffee Shop with Zi Char Stall, Economical Rice and Teo Chew Porridge Stall, Roti Prata Stall, Yong Tau Foo and Laksa Stall, Dim Sum Stall, Hot and Cold beverage Stall, Fruit and Fresh Fruit Juice Stall, Grocery section, ALL selling PURELY Vegetarian Food.
Amazing! isn't it? And, they also have other outlets at Hougang, Bukit Purmei, Teck Chye Terrace and Kallang Bahru.
You may not find ALL the BEST Vegetarian Food in this Coffeeshop but the Extensive Array of Vegetarian food here, you will not be able to find it elsewhere.
Items such as Soup, Fried Carrot Cake, Thunder Tea Rice, Congee, kueh, Big Bun, Chee Cheong Fun, Pumpkin/Yam Cake, local delights (such as Mee Rebus, Mee Siam, Lor Mee, Chicken Rice etc), Western Food are available too. Reasonably priced - just like Zi Char's pricing, starting from $3.
I ordered "Gui Hua" Bean Vermicelli ($4), it is not "Ma Yi Shang Shu" (means Ants climbing up a tree). It is stir-fry Glass Noodle with Egg and Vegetables.
I requested for an eggless version and it was stir-fried with cabbage shreds, carrot shreds, bean spouts, mock ham, black fungus, green pepper chilli. It was served with vegetarian chilli paste and a lime, but I would think red chilli padi with lime juice, sugar and light soy sauce would be wonderful.
The staffs and Chefs are very friendly and flexible, if you want your food with egg, without egg, less oil, no mock meat etc, just let them know. I had even requested them to just sell me the Thunder Tea Rice Broth Paste only and they happily prepared for me. I just kept it frozen in the refrigerator and make a bowl of piping hot Thunder Tea Rice Broth when I crave for it.
They do have home-made barley drink (hot or cold) priced at 80cents and dessert too. The Barley drink is very different from others, it is rich and tasty.
BTW, this is a favourite lunch place for Taxi Drivers! You will notice there are many taxi parked at the car park during 12-2pm. Another feature!
What more could a vegetarian ask for other than an entire food court dedicated to her??
There is a good selection of roti prata to rojak and dim sum to duck rice! I love it!
Lets admit that local food is only rarely healthy and is predominantly soaked in oil. So just choose healthily and you will not clog your arteries!
I’m not a fan of vegetarian cuisine, but since my mum likes it and we’re supposed to celebrate her birthday, so we went to this branch yesterday.
First thing we noticed was, there were a lot of cars parking outside the small restaurant, and it’s like 12 pm! So we went in and walked around until we find a just-emptied table. Their menu is not overwhelming but is enough to bring out some ooohhs and waas from us. They have all sorts of cuisines and we thought we should all try different ones. So we order claypot mee, Hong Kong fried noodles, bean-paste hor fun, fish & chips, and seafood spaghetti and a few more side dishes. They have set meal options for western, italian and japanese cuisines, so we decided to go for it.
After waiting for a very looooong time (I would like to assume that it’s due to overwhelming walk-in customers), our food came. Gado-gado and tauhoo-goreng (fried dried tofu) came first. The gado-gado comes with a sauce that tastes like satay sauce (or maybe it IS satay sauce), and we ALL commented that it’s nice. Not too sweet, not too salty, just nice. Same goes for the tauhoo-goreng, except that this comes with light lemon and peanut sauce. Very nice and I simply loved it! Next comes the apple-grape-honeydew-fruit salad, with thousand island dressing.
Then our main dishes are served...finally! All looked delicious and most ARE delicious. Why most? It might be because we (my sisters and myself) cannot really appreciate vegetarian food, so we simply cannot take the taste of the fish & chips. It’s NOT utterly disgusting, just that we got sick of the taste after some time, and the serving is big.
Other than that, the rest of the food that we ordered are good. Their mushroom soup (included in the set meal) is nice, and a little thick though. Rojak’s nice too, and tastes no different with the ones you get in coffee shops. The only thing is, you really need to be early to minimize waiting time, even if you drive, because the carpark nearby was full by the time we reach there, just that we were lucky enough to catch a just-emptied (again) car slot.
Overall, I definitely would recommend this place to my vegetarian friends. Also, our bill is only $43 for 5 main dishes (2 with sets), 4 side dishes, and 3 can drinks, and we are VERY full by the time we leave the restaurant.
