Nyonya Laksa Lemak

$9.90 · 9 Reviews

The servings, or at least the crockery, at this vegetarian restaurant are huge! That slightly made up for the inflated prices. Nothing to complain about the laksa, yet also nothing special. It's like standard laksa, vegetarian or not.

This quaint hidden gem tucked away in Joo Chiat allows vegetarians to get a taste of the local cuisine while staying meat-free. Served with bowl of sweet corn soup, the Kampung Fried Rice Set ($10.90) is a delectably smoky, belacan-infused dish with soy-prawn and tender mock satay doused in a creamy peanut sauce. Another popular alternative is the coconutty Nyonya Laksa Lemak ($9.90) that has tons of mock prawns, fishcakes and tofu soaked nicely in a rich and creamy spice-filled broth.

I think this is my favourite vegan restaurant in Singapore now. Everything I’ve had here is awesome.

This time I decided to try the Teochew mee pok ($9.90) which didn’t disappoint. The perfectly cooked mee pok came with a yummy mushroom-based topping, “fishcakes” and “fishballs”. The portion is much bigger than you would get in a Hawker centre. I also highly recommend their warm soymilk.

It can be tough to find a place to go to with non-vegans/vegetarians but Loving Hut is the perfect solution to that. They offer vegan renditions of local dishes (laksa, char kway teow etc), Chinese food, Western food and more!

Get hawker food cravings bad on Meatless Mondays? Pop right over to this Joo Chiat Road cafe, which really impresses with its vegetarian spin on popular local dishes — think Vegan O-Luak ($12.90) and Vegan Kway Chap ($9.90), available respectively on Tuesdays and Fridays. Their rice plates are equally local, with options like Banana Leaf Nasi Campur ($12.90), Three Cup Chickin Rice Set ($10.90) and a smoky Kampung Fried Rice Set ($10.90) that even comes with a few sticks of soft and moist vegan satay. What Burpple Tastemaker Jason Wong really enjoyed is the Nyonya Laksa Lemak ($9.90). "The broth is rich and creamy with unabashedly bold flavours of coconut and spices, chock-full of mock prawn, fishcake and tofu cakes," he describes. He even declares that it'll give nearby Katong Laksa a good run for its money! Loving Hut's extensive menu includes Western plates like pastas and burgers too, but it's the local flavours we'll be visiting for.

Loved this place. Definitely recommended for vegans and non vegans alike.


Giving nearby Katong Laksa a run for its money is this vegan rendition of a beloved local dish. Living up to it's "Lemak" namesake, the broth is rich and creamy with unabashedly bold flavours of coconut and spices, chockful of mock prawn, fishcake and tofu cakes.

Taste: 4/5


A very recommended cafe to dine in for all vegans, they serve local delights like mee siam, laksa and chicken rice?! Interesting food, nice ambience and reasonable pricing.
