Meat has always been part of my diet. I do have friends who are vegan and sometimes, I do feel bad for bringing them out to eat as you do not see as many vegan restaurants in Singapore. Sometimes all they eat is fries.
My friends have always told me to try out vegan food. They explain how vegan food is made of plant-based ingredients and how it tastes like actual meat. At first, I did not believe them, like how is it possible that food made from plant-based ingredient could taste like meat?
However, I was curious to find out if it really does taste like meat. I have yet to get my hands on some vegan food, but I will definitely try them one day. Let’s look at some of the vegan restaurants here in Singapore.
8ash puts a meatless spin on our usual fast food menu items. It is part of the Ebb and Flow Group’s multi-concept space, serving a wide range of meat-free options. You can get a taste at some of their classics such as their Cheeseburger ($12.50) and their Mushroom Cheese Burger ($17).
Apart from that, you can also find night market favourites such as their Vegan ‘Ramli’ ($15). Similar to the ones available at every night market, it is made with an eggless frittata, garlic aioli, barbeque sauce, melted vegan cheese and their signature Impossible burger patty.
Treat yourself to some sides too such as their Cream Spinach Loaded Fries ($9), Prawn Cocktail ($10), Calamari Rings ($8) and more.

Located at City Square Mall, Saute-San is the first halal-certified Japanese and Korean plant-based restaurant. Offering a wide range of meatless dishes, this restaurant is a popular option for vegans, vegetarians, and those who want to indulge in healthy and delicious food.
Try their Handmade Vegan Katsu Curry (17.90) made with plant-based patty coated in katsu batter and breadcrumbs. It is then fried until golden, served on top of Japanese short grain rice with a side of vegetables, and drenched in Japanese curry.
You can also try out their steamboat (from $36.90). Pick your choice of soup and staple (rice or ramen). The set includes tofu, cherry tomatoes, enoki mushrooms and more. I am definitely going to try this restaurant out!

By the name, you can already guess that it offers vegan burgers! Veganburg is the world’s first 100% plant-based burger joint that was founded back in 2010. They only have two outlets worldwide. One in San Francisco and one here, in Singapore.
Their burgers are 95% made from scratch as they believe in integrity in their food, thus, their burgers are always made fresh for their customers. You can choose from a wide range of their delicious burgers.
They are currently offering their seasonal burger, Rasa Sayang Burg (from $13.90) made with their 100% plant-based patty, topped with a sunny-side up egg, cucumber slices, sambal, caramelised onions, vegan aioli, and lettuce.
Apart from burgers, you can also order sides such as their Phish Fingers (from $5.90), Shrooms Pops ($5.90), and more. Pair your meal with beverages such as Kombucha ($7.80) and fresh coconut juice ($5.80) to end off a great meal.
