Vegetarian chicken rice at Fork and Spoon food court

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.

That's great that you have some vegan options in the food court there.

By the way, I responded to your comment regarding my recent blog post over on my blog.

Veg tom yum paste is a staple in my kitchen. I think tom yum soup is the cure for the common cold ;)

How come this dish is not healthy? My husband would just love it!

I had a try yesterday but hey the ham is missing, could be that it is the special menu for day with discount of $0.50 at $3.
Anyway, I still prefer the one at Rocher centre coffeeshop:HuanXin Su
You should try it, it tasted too real the last round I tried:P

Ok I will give it a go next tim i m at rochor, it looks really good! Oh you are lucky! The ham isn't worth 50c anyway hahaha...

isn't tom yum paste normally vegan?

dreamy said...

Hi Kham Ing, nope :) Tom yam paste can contain shrimp and fish sauce, but it is easily veganizable if people are willing to do it. Many dishes are, just that people usually pur a couple of non-veg ingredients in the dishes.
