Sitting at the top of Orchard Central is a beautiful restaurant blessed with tons of natural light and luscious greenery — the perfect backdrop for your next date or special occasion. Splurge on a 7 Course Set Dinner ($68.80) to enjoy a wider range of dishes. Expect dishes like the Vegetable Sashimi on Ice with Sea Grapes Shooter Glass that manipulates ingredients like coconut, konjac, huai san and aloe vera to embody the texture and bite of the real thing. As part of the 7-course dinner, Burppler Aunty Discount Club recommends choosing the Grill Summer Mushroom Steak on “Pu-Ye” Hot Stone and drizzling on the accompanying thick peppery sauce.

This was incredibly interesting! The salmon looking thing was actually carrot, and the other ingredients were coconut, konjac, huai san. We were thinking on how they’d be able to do sashimi platter out of plants, but this was done beautifully.

Everything surprisingly went well with the wasabi and soya sauce, even the coconut. If you’re looking for something truly unique, you got to order this cold dish. 👍🏻

Quite an interesting dish with layers of Apple mozzarella and basil dressing, none of the flavours in the sauce stood out, it was just a pretty good creamy sauce in between the thinly sliced pear. I love how refreshing this is, together with all the flavours combined together. This dish made me pretty happy 🙂

Other than that, the tomato on the side, was a little too sweet. Mint yoghurt dressing pretty standard.

Grilled monkey head mushroom with truffle mash and with crispy “pasta”. Very interesting flavours with the mushroom. Love the texture of it, overall a dish worth trying!

Would have been better if the sauce was unique, rather than just a standard black pepper sauce.

To finish off our mains, we each got different desserts to get a taste of various flavours. Their desserts are pretty average, nothing to rave about.

1 - Red wine poached pear with Lime sorbet:
The poached pear was quite sweet, more of a berry flavour compared to red wine. Sorbet was pretty standard

2 - Layers of red bean and yam with rose glass:
Hardly could find any red bean on it, mainly the yam purée which is just like orh nee in between pastry sheets with chocolate sauce and ice cream

3 - Yoghurt pudding:
Personal favourite as it wasn’t too sweet, the base was like a mix of yoghurt and a little custard topped with chia and some crunchy bits, but it’s kind of like a breakfast jar so.... no complaints

4 - Warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream:
A very basic one, no float chocolate out of it though

If Whole Earth sets the standards for Asian vegetarian restaurants in Singapore, then Joie does it for fusion veg, or creative veg, or just veg. All the dishes in the lunch menu are very good; the ‘steak’ made with monkey head mushrooms and the gratin which tastes like French escargots are outstanding. The only weak dish is the charcoal tempura, where the batter is a big thick. Extremely friendly service, and reasonable prices. We will definitely go back to Joie with joy.

This is my favourite main course at Joie! Lion’s mane mushrooms are my favourite because they taste so good, so juicy and are super nutritious. They are also kind of pricey and it’s so rare to get such a big serving.

The mushroom was nicely grilled and the juices well-sealed within so you get to enjoy it with every bite. The mushroom was placed on top of a hot slab of stone and you will hear the mushroom sizzle as you press against the stone. The truffle mashed potato was superb too.

I wasn’t expecting much bc all these kinda “mock meat” stuff that I’ve tried in the past weren’t impressive, some of them don’t even taste like meat haha. But this one actually had the same texture as salmon sashimi!!!! It wasn’t rly soft and mushy but there was also some kind of chewiness to it like a real salmon!!!!! Omg how did anyone manage to do this to a 🥕?!?! hahaha

This light-filled restaurant located at Orchard Central's rooftop garden continually rakes in the crowds with its beautifully presented vegetarian plates — they might even have converted a few stubborn meat eaters! The elegant and tasteful decor is a bonus, making it an ideal location to wine and dine a date or business associate. Burpplers even voted this as the top "fancy" vegetarian spot in our recent survey! Joie offers a six-course lunch ($38.80) and seven-course dinner ($68.80) that showcase both the natural flavours of fruit, vegetables and herbs, as well as the kitchen team's creativity. Expect the likes of gratinated champignon mushrooms with mozzarella and a stunning zucchini 'tower' filled with creme cheese and truffle mayo, along with the Burpple community's top picks — silky pumpkin and spinach ravioli in a light cream sauce, as well the vegetable sashimi (you have to taste this to believe it!).
Avg Price: $50 per person

But I must say, this mock / vegetarian Salmon Sashimi tastes nearly like the real deal - firm, springy, saccharine.... you're never gonna believe if I reveal that this is actually made of carrot.

Ahh, the mastery of some talented Chefs....

It is not looking bright but a dull brown. But do not let looks deceive your eyes or rather your tummy.
My mains from the set lunch. A grill summer mushroom steak and placed on a leaf which rests on "pu-er" hot stone. Garnished with a crispy tempura fan and a very creamy mash below. It was sizzling hot & kept the mushroom hot for the longest time. This mushroom is called "monkey head mushroom" originated from Taiwan.
Known for its boosting immunity properties. It really does not taste like mushroom. Spongy .. kinda reminds me of chiffon cake, atad sweet and slight smokyness from the effects of grilling. Dipping sauce is like teriyaki sauce with sesame seeds but is actually mustard sauce. I am no mushroom fan but I truly enjoyed eating it.

I totally enjoyed my vegetarian dining experience at @joiebydozo and I cannot wait to revisit them again!
Thank you @cindi1601 for being my dining and foodie pal that day! 😘 #nofilter #nosnapseed #raw

It is.... MUSHROOM.

This is the pseudo steak in the form of mushroom created by @joiebydozo. You could even choose to have more cook on your mushroom by cooking it longer on the hot stone. SO FREAKING COOL!

This is made up of CARROTS, COCONUT AND PEAR.

But trust me, you might find yourselves doubting your tastebuds when you dip each of these into the soy sauce and wasabi. You'll go HUH THIS IS CARROT MEH?

Cleverly made with carrot and konyaku, like the salmon sashimi in disguise, the textures were ON POINT, and taste wise, it's really might fool you once you have them together with the soy sauce provided!

Ingenious creation by @joiebydozo, the most amazing vegetarian restaurant (imagine mushroom served like a steak) I've ever been to, and it's only $38.80++ for a 6 course lunch set. CRAZILY MINDBLOWING!
