Vegetarian Society (Singapore)

If you are a vegetarian or vegan staying in Singapore, or are planning to visit the country, Vegetarian Society (Singapore) is one website you must check out. It contains a great list on where you can get vegetarian food. Singapore is a very vegetarian-friendly place, so you do not have to worry about where to find veg food :). Many of these outlets offer chinese vegetarian food, and these are usually vegan. However, vegans need look out for eggs or dairy in the dishes, though it is seldom a problem if you choose to stick to the regular stir-fry dishes - vegetables, bee hoon, rice, etc.. Those that vegans need to look out for are e.g. laksa - the hawkers may mix coconut milk with milk. Fish head bee hoon is another dish which may contain milk used to colour the soup. When in doubt, always ask. There are also many other hidden non-vegan ingredients in food, such as honey, non-vegan magarine etc. Magarine may be used to make the crust of e.g. curry puffs, or are found in baked goods. Another thing is that for those who love garlics, onions, leeks, shallots, and chives, you may not find them being used to flavour the food in many chinese vegetarian eateries.

If you have any questions feel free to ask at the forum of Vegetarian Society (Singapore). If you wish to receive free electronic newsletters from the society you can sign up here.
