The store isn’t big. However, a lot of guests can take a while to shop here. Essentially, it’s easy to be fascinated by every item you’ll find here. I’m sure that this store has the highest density of products labelled “organic” you can find in Singapore. Little Farms is a part café and grocery store. And they are most popular for their fresh produce and all-natural grocery options. Don’t forget to stroll down the grocery aisle. You’ll find a bunch of vegan and vegetarian snacks.

4. Whole Earth – Vegetarian

Whole Earth | Singapore Restaurant Specializing in Plant-based Cuisines

Whole Earth is the first restaurant in Singapore to be awarded by Michelin Bib Gourmand for four consecutive years. Coming here is a delight. Everything feels like nature. You’ll see walls coloured emerald green. There are a lot of tables and chairs that can accommodate more people. While a lot of people dine here, you won’t worry about too many guests inside. They have a good ventilation system to keep fresh air circulating inside. 

You won’t regret booking a reservation at Whole Earth. The restaurant serves flavoursome local vegetarian dishes. I’m not a big fan of vegetarian foods, but some plates here are surprisingly good. It makes me think of switching my diet. When you taste the dishes, you may think it has fish or chicken meat on it. But in reality, it’s basically full of mushrooms, beans, and other green foods. Dining here is an experience that can last forever. Guests will surely come back for their mutton rendang and meatballs. So, see you!

Real Food has three vegetarian cafes. You can find them at Orchard Central, South Beach and Square 2. You can easily spot them with their Zen-like interiors. We featured Real Food in this article because the vegetarian café serves with no processed ingredients. They are also true to No Artificial Preservatives and No Trans Fat dishes. If you’ve been to their branch in South Beach, it is quite a nice place. But some fans say Orchard Road outlet looks even better!

When you drop by their Orchard Road outlet, make sure to check their retail space at the front of the Real Food restaurant. This is where you can buy healthy foodstuffs. Of course, there’s a bunch of selections, from snacks, milk, to fresh vegetables! We recommend ordering Nourish Your Heart smoothie from the café. Although relatively expensive ($8.80), it contains a lot of good stuff (avocado, coconut oil, flaxseed, etc.).

As for the foods, their menu changes as per the locale taste. Aside from the regular vegan menu, Loving hut offers Weekday specials. It’s worth it to try this offer. One elder couple orders a weekday dish, and all I can say was it is very large and appetizing. There’s also an option wherein you can ask for a special dish from the counter. Just tell them whatever you need or prefer, and they’ll serve it for you.

The Boneless Kitchen is a Korean restaurant that only sells vegetarian food. If you think of Korean fare, barbecued meats, and fried chicken comes to mind. Surprisingly, this meatless Korean restaurant will change your mind. Guest dining here says it’s extremely rare for a restaurant to serve vegan Korean food. And don’t get surprised by how they can cook well without meat! The food and the simple setup alone are worth the trip all the way to the east. 

If it is your first time to try Korean style vegetarian food, try out their kimchi pancake. You’ll thank them for allowing you to have the opportunity to taste Korean cuisine but plant-based. You’ll even find this amusing since Korean food tends to be full of meat. So, their effort to make their cuisine full of veggies are already quite commendable. Serving can range from S$10 – S$20 per pax.
