Best vegan restaurants and cafes in Singapore for plant-based food
If you’re familiar with the cocktail bar Native, you’ve surely heard of Analogue, a bar and restaurant putting a future-oriented spin on plant-based food and drinks. The carefully curated menu is anything but ordinary: get a table for a classy night of cactus cocktails and meat-free mains.

Afterglow encourages a vegan – or at least flexitarian – diet for a more sustainable world. And the cafe does this by serving up a variety of farm-to-table, eco-friendly food that’s anything but bland. Drawing inspiration from a range of cuisines, the menu includes avocado kimchi rolls with homemade kimchi, lentil flaxseed nuggets, and Kyoto summer which is an Asian tofu salad that provides a dose of protein without the meat.
