Review: 3 of the Best Vegetarian-Friendly Restaurants in Singapore

Let’s face it: we all love to eat. Eating is not just a necessity. It has become some sort of comfort for most of us. Think about it. People eat when they’re happy. They resort to food when they’re depressed. Whenever we think about going on trips, we think of what local dishes to try. We are consumers of food that are consumed with thoughts of food.

With all the heavy eating we do, we also need to watch what we put in our bodies. Not everything we eat is good for our health. Everything is permissible, but not all things are beneficial. This is why, based on The Dining Advisor’s reviews, we came up with a list of some great spots in Singapore that serve healthy food, a sure hit among vegetarians from all walks of life.

Resto and Food Review: 3 Singapore Vegetarian-Friendly Spots


The World’s First 1-Michelin Star Peranakan Resto

Known as the world’s first 1-Michelin Star Peranakan restaurant, Candlenut’s small menu contains some of the best Straits-Chinese cuisine set in an upscale and refined environment. Peranakan refers to the descendants of local Malays and Chinese immigrants who moved to the Malay archipelago from the 15th to the 17th century.

With a unique blend of Chinese, Malay, and other influences, Candlenut is popular to both locals and tourists, especially for vegetarians and pescetarians. Their food has a distinctly spicy yet tangy and herbal Malay flavour. The portions are just right and served family-style. Chef Malcolm Lee wants his diners to get the experience of going to your grandma’s house and getting served lovingly-prepared food.

El Mero Mero

The Go-to Guys for Mexican Food Coma

El Mero Mero is the go-to-guys for Mexican food in Singapore. It mixes the island life vibe with casual sophistication perfectly. With a more updated look and menu, this restaurant is the perfect spot for casual dining or fun and romantic dates.

The food is straight-up authentic Mexican gastronomy, much to the delight of every diner. The resto also boasts of classic South America cocktails like Tequila, Pisco, and Mezcal. Overall, it is a great joint any foodie will love — a unique place, refreshing food, and great service. It’s simply outstanding.

Light and Healthy Dishes in an Instagram-worthy Place

With a menu that presents the best dishes from Como hotels all over the world, Como Cuisine is perfect for picky eaters while taking healthy eating to a whole new level.

It’s not health food, just a healthier option. Their menu contains a slew of dishes from Europe, Australia, the United States, and of course, Asia. The food is light, but the flavour is never compromised. Their light and bright food choices blend perfectly in the restaurant’s ambience, which makes it a good spot for Instagram (or any social media) posts.

While these restos do not serve an all-vegetarian menu, their food is simply some of the finest vegetarian-friendly food in all of Singapore. Regardless if you’re vegetarian or not, you can enjoy healthy and delicious food prepared only by the top chefs.
