The other day I was at Toa Payoh and decided to try out the veg stall at Fork and Spoon food court (beside the entertainment centre on the 2nd floor). They had quite a number of dishes hor fan, sheng noodles, etc. I decide to give the chicken rice a shot although it's unhealthy :p
The difference between this and other vegetarian chicken rice is it comes with a slice of "ham" and vegetables. The two "black" stuff is black pepper "fish" - not really nice and quite oily (this doesn't come with the chicken rice set). The "chicken" looks a lot like the real thing it makes you feel uneasy. It's taste is different of course, but not tasteless like it looks. The rice and chilli is very nice. $3.50 for this.
I bought some vegan cookies by orgran. Orgran food range are all vegan. 14 small pieces for $5.25. It doesn't snap easily nor is it crunchy, more like soft crumbles.
These 2 vegetarian pastes were bought sometime ago from Malaysia. On the left is the vegetarian tom yam paste, great for seasoning your economy fried veg been hoon or making your own tom yam dishes. The one on the right is "Penang prawn mee paste" it is also good on bee hoon. The taste is quite hard to describe. Salty and hot, but with a unique taste thrown in too.
If you want to make your own shrimp paste here's a recipe for it.
