If going vegetarian or flexitarian is one of your new year’s resolutions, then this list is for you.
The good news is for those adopting a vegan or plant-based diet, Singapore has ample vegetarian restaurants to satiate your appetite. With more diners adopting a vegetarian and flexitarian diet, we’ve seen many new vegan-based restaurants sprout up over the years.
Our vegetarian offerings here have also evolved from plates of vegetarian noodles with mock char siew from the hawker centre to gourmet diners serving up exquisite dishes. Even more promising is the fact that this plant-based revolution is set to gain even more momentum in the years to come, especially as more vegetarian restaurants begin to mushroom all over Singapore.
