Vegetarian food in Singapore

Vegetarian food is often misunderstood as boring, when there are actually so many options available in Singapore, that cover multiple cuisines. These range from hearty Korean fare to Japanese cuisine. Whether you’re a plant-based eater, or looking to take your vegetarian friend out for a meal, our list of 15 vegetarian food places in Singapore has got you covered.

1. LingZhi Vegetarian Restaurant

LingZhi Vegetarian Restaurant prides itself on its menu of innovative dishes, made with fresh and organic ingredients. A must-try is their Firecracker Monkey Head Mushroom ($24++), a take on the Sichuan la zi ji. Otherwise, get the Vegetarian Satay Served In Fresh Pineapple ($20++) which is equally delicious as it is aesthetically pleasing.

The restaurant also serves an A La Carte Hot Pot Buffet (from $24.80++). You can choose collagen, mushroom, or tom yum for the soup base, with over 30 dishes on the buffet menu. Do note that a minimum of two diners is required per table.

My personal favourite on the list is The Boneless Kitchen, a social enterprise that sells vegetarian Korean food in Singapore.

Meanwhile, the Kimbap ($9.90), a Korean rice roll snack, and Kimchi Bulgogi Fries ($11.90) make for moreish bites.
