The Kind Bowl is a plant-based Vietnamese spot that’s just a short walk away from Somerset. Couldn’t really imagine how chicken pho can be made plant-based, but we were so impressed! The unassuming broth was clean tasting yet very flavourful, with a distinct fragrant mix of your usual pho herbs. If you’re thinking what about the meats? It’s replaced with a generous portion of king abalone mushroom slices and mock meats. Lots of textures here and was such a comforting bowl! It comes with alliums, but you can request for them to exclude it.

Looking like any other churro dusted in sugar, but these actually had a fluffy potato centre! Was very pleasantly surprised by these though the combination may sound incompatible. The exterior has a light crisp and wasn’t too sweet.

There’s Burpple Beyond 1 for 1 here now for their Double Classic sets. Thank you @thegoodburgersg for having us and @burpple for the kind invite! ✨

Make sure you have these hot! Personally found the crust a tad too thick though the mozzarella was indeed pretty generous.

Feasted on a whole range of plant-based @impossible_foods burgers from The Goodburger and also got to try their newer @tindlefoods chicken burger. Have been here several times and I like how their burgers are not the sort that’s overwhelmed with sauces - they are clean tasting yet flavourful with various choices like classic, truffle, smoky BBQ etc. Plus points to how these don’t leave any greasy mouthfeel! Buns are fluffy and patties seasoned well, my only gripe is for more greens and a better patty to bun ratio for the single patty ones.

As for sides, we munched on a lot of their french fries the last round, but happy to see a bigger variety now - crunchy beer battered onion rings, mozzarella sticks, nuggets and what was a surprise, sugar dusted churros with a fluffy potato centre. Prices are definitely on the steeper end but psst, they’re on Burpple Beyond for their Double Classic Sets. Thank you @thegoodburgersg for feeding us with your yummy burgers and @burpple for the kind invite! ✨

Another vegan dish on the menu are these vegan kebabs made with Impossible meat. Texture was average and would have liked perhaps, a stronger and more distinct char. These are served with a lightly spicy and tangy lemongrass peanut sauce to dip which I liked, as the usual satay peanut sauces are too heavy for me. Found this quite apricey for its portion.

Riders Cafe’s no unfamiliar name in the cafe scene. They’re one of the OG cafes, best known for hearty brunches in their quaint space tucked away in all the greenery. Came by this time for their dinner that’s available 5pm onwards and enjoyed the different evening ambience.

Started off with this vegan appetiser which I loved! This was very thoughtfully put together. Sweet Japanese squash that was perfectly roasted to a fluffy texture, served with lots of bright toppings - grains, pops of sweet pomegranate, and a refreshing mix of chopped tomatoes, onions, kale, mint and parsley. All these were brought together with their lightly savory house made miso tahini. This was not only fun to have, but was actually of a good substantial portion too.

This was one of those dishes that was spotted on many diner’s table! They have orh luak of different flavours - Mala ($17.90), Kimchi ($15.90), Okonomiyaki style ($17.90) and all are available to be done vegan as well. The fried egg omelette has straw mushrooms, seaweed and a side chilli sauce. For the price, I was definitely expecting a lot more mushrooms. Other than that, it was seasoned nicely with crisp sides, and had a good ratio of starchy parts! It was quite oily though, and would recommend to finish it while hot.

Wasn’t a fan of how watery the pesto sauce was, thought it would be better if the sauce had a thicker consistency and a more concentrated pesto flavour. Toppings were pretty generous though, with shiitake mushroom, slices of king oyster mushrooms, cashew nuts, mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

Was one of the recommended dishes, but unfortunately found it a bit bland with a powdery aftertaste. Not sure if it was supposed to be this saucy, but it was almost like a soupy type of pasta. Toppings were shiitake mushrooms and soy ham slices.

Tried something new during our most recent visit to Green on Earth, the Ten Herbal Soup was one of the daily specials. It was strong of herbal notes though a touch sweeter than I would have liked. Would be nice to more a little more variety of ingredients other than mock meat chunks.

Was deciding on a vegetarian spot in Fortune Centre and settled at Pine Tree Cafe. Was a tasty and affordably priced bowl that came with mushrooms, mock meat balls, a generous portion of vegetables and a bowl of flavourful herbal soup. Not too much a fan of the fiery chilli as it overpowered the other flavours, but the mee kia was done well with a good bite. Saw that they have ma la xiang guo, yong tau foo and abacus seeds. Will be back to try those next time!

Tracy’s Special Udon has udon in a mushroom broth topped with mock meat, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and broccoli! Might seem a bit pricey, but their thick broth is made generously with lots of mushrooms. Think I expected it to be more savoury but it had a nice tang of which I think are from tomatoes. It was well balanced and kept the overall bowl easy to have without being jelak. Portion was filling!

They are open till evening but when we were there for late lunch around 3ish, most dishes were already sold out - wanted to try their Lei Cha too but that’s only available on the 1st and 15th days of the lunar month. Probably good to pop by earlier if you want to catch more items!
