Wellness Tea Time at Capella Chef’s Table
Having an additional meal in between lunch and dinner doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure. Capella’s upscale kitchen, Chef’s Table rolls out a wellness-centric afternoon tea (pictured top) every Friday – a perfect way to end the work week, in our opinion! The spread of vegan bites is made from wholesome ingredients (think chia seeds, quinoa, and zucchini) and paired with Ayurvedic teas.
Capella Singapore, 1 The Knolls, Sentosa Island, Singapore 098297
The world first plant-based burger joint can’t be left out of this list. Since launching in Singapore, VeganBurg has captured the hearts of vegans and omnivores alike with the healthier and more sustainable take on fast food. Classic burger flavours include the smoky BBQ and Hawaiian teriyaki, while the local-inspired chargrilled satay is a crowd favourite too. Psst: VeganBurg is now on Food Panda and Deliveroo for everyone who can’t make it to the outlet in Geylang!
VeganBurg, 44 Jalan Eunos, Singapore 419502
The newest vegan fast food kid on the block, Hello Baby has already caught our attention – the menu is a party of sweet and savoury treats. Mantou sliders with chili ‘crab’ sauce, beetroot burger with melty Kroodi cheddar, nut butter chocolate cake, the list could go on. One thing’s for sure: this burger joint will be our go-to for a less sinful fast food run!
Hello Baby, 10 Trengganu St, Singapore 058464
What do you do if you’re vegan but want a taste of the most popular local dishes? You head to Loving Hut, of course. In addition to the cafe’s dedication for saving Earth, we love how it offers vegan alternatives to local favourites like mee siam, kway chap, claypot rice and more. They’ve even managed to create a vegan version of the O-Luak, a Teochew omelette dish that’s typically made with oysters!
Loving Hut, 229 Joo Chiat Road, #01-01, Singapore 427489
Helmed by two vegetarian head chefs, Hrvst focuses on ‘making vegan food cool’ – and we certainly think they’ve achieved that goal. If you thought this rooftop bar looked amazing, wait till you see the food. From the soy satay and the bak kut teh barley risotto to the vegan cocktails, you’ll forget that you’re having a meat and dairy-free meal.
Hrvst, #05-01 OUE Downtown Gallery, 6A Shenton Way, Singapore 068815
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 is anything but bland. Drawing inspiration from a range of cuisines, the menu includes the avocado kimchi rolls with homemade kimchi, the Cuban burger made with a black bean patty, and the Asian tofu salad that provides a dose of protein without the meat.
Afterglow, 24 Keong Saik Rd, Singapore 089131
The Living Cafe
We absolutely love The Living Cafe for its comprehensive menu, labelled with vegan, vegetarian, raw, gluten-free and nut-free options. Whether it’s the satiating kale and black sesame sushi bowl or a comforting cup of matcha, the food here is as tasty as it is healthy. Cold-pressed juices and catering services are available too!
The Living Cafe, 779 Bukit Timah Rd, Singapore 269758
Honourable mention: Food Rebel
Food Rebel is a great cafe to hit up when you’re in a group of friends with different dietary needs (they’ve also got paleo and gluten-free dishes). For plant-based eaters, we recommend the vegan chickpea and sweet potato bowl, topped with beetroot hummus and tahini dressing.
Food Rebel, 28 Stanley St, Singapore 068737
