1. Original Sin
I can’t talk about vegan food without paying tribute to the godfather of vegan food in Singapore. This long time favorite of mine serves delicious Middle Eastern and Italian cuisine.
Tip: Take the outdoor seating, great place to people watch. Order the mezze platter to share and the moussaka for a perfect portion for two. If you feel like you still have some room, chow down the truffle fries and chug it with some red wines after.

Prive spiced up the dynamic local F & B scene after re-invigorating their existing outlets and adding new ones in 2019. The food is delish, and their healthy lunch set is good value for money at only $22. Find familar comfort foods, such as the spaghetti and salads.
Tip: The outdoor seating at the Paragon outlet is a great place to chill. Order the vegan biryani and vegan bolonaise to share and end your meal with home-made coconut ice cream topped with berries.

Hands down to one of the best burger joints in Singapore that offers a wide choice vegan option for their gourmet burgers. Smacked in the heart of Orchard road, the restaurant has lush greenery and natural lighting. Ingredients are good quality and fresh.
Tip: Order the Kaserbor or the Wolpertinger meal and chug it down with one of their ice cold german beers.

Another favorite vegetarian joint, Real Food serves organic vegetarian food. Their Orchard Central is usually packed to the brim despite the generous space. Food is great with a fantastic at atmosphere.

Timeless Peranakan and Thai favorites are served at this restaurant that has been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand award since 2016. I can’t say much about ambience but their food is sure to wow your date.
