An unassuming little Vegetarian Stall hidden in coffee shop along Hoe Chiang Road (near Amara Hotel and within walking distance from Tanjong Pagar MRT) serving delectable vegetarian food at a very reasonable price.
Surprisingly, '3 veggies + white rice' cost ONLY $2.7 and with an additional 30cents you get brown rice instead. A good deal!
From the Ala carte menu, it offers adequate varieties of those popular picks. Owing to my dilemma (problems with deciding what to order) in my lunch's time choices, I ordered the Stir-fried Mee Suah @ $4, which turned out to be flavorsome and not grease; although I should have ordered their Specialty Tom Yum Soup Noodle.
The downside, the coffee shop is a little too cramped without enough seats and air-con, otherwise it would be a good lunch place for cheap eats. It seems that many of their customers ordered take-away instead.
The Greens Vegetarian Kitchen is located in a coffee shop named Lakopi at 5 Hoe Chiang Road (opposite Amara Hotel). It is operated by the owner of Lakopi and offer economic vegetarian meal during lunch and a la carte for dinner. Operating hours from 11 am to 9 pm. Last order 8.30pm.
My office is in near by Rank Xeron building and is convenient for me to try out the food for lunch as well as dinner. Lunch is very reasonable. Any 3 items at $2.7 with rice or bee hoon and Any 4 items for only $3.2. It has on average 15-20 items each day to choose from and the food is neither oily or too salty. It is just right for me. I also tried the a la carte menu with friends. We ordered the sweet and sour mock meat $7 , mock shrimp cooked with oat meal $8 and Tofu in claypot $7. I particularly like the mock shrimp cooked in oat meal. The portion is sufficient for party of four. Overall, the food is good and parking is convenient.
Lakopi also has a stall offering Hong Kong style food such as wanton noodle, beef brisket noodle, century egg and pork congee , Hong Kong style desserts, ginseng chicken soup and many more. It is quite exciting to find so many items in a coffee shop environment.
This place is definitely worth exploring. I have yet to try other items . Let you know next time.
