Sweet potatoes (carb), ginger scallion tofu (protein), button mushrooms and broccoli (supplements), furikake (toppings), pesto vinaigrette (dressing) were my pick. As for the proteins, tofu was the only vegetarian option. There's also premium options e.g. Shrimp, salmon and steak at an additional cost. The tofu cubes were soft albeit firm and beancurd-like, without much seasoned flavours of ginger scallion. Fortunately that's when the dressing comes in handy, as well as the furikake toppings I had garnished atop. The pesto vinaigrette was creamy, thick with a characteristic minty herbaceous flavour, a complementary pairing to the tofu and mushrooms as well. Broccoli was crunchy and juicy whereas the mushrooms were well sautΓ©ed with a pleasant earthy note. Sweet potatoes were soft, dense with a subtle sweetness. Not quite a complementary element here and I would prefer having it in silo for a dessert / sweet fix after the meal instead. Perhaps rice/ wholewheat pasta would be a better option. For those on a greener and cleaner diet, there's also lettuce, baby spinach and quinoa for the carbs as well. A value for money, fuss-free and filling meal that's also convenient when you are in a rush of time, especially for the office crowd, given its location in the CBD district. .

The soy patty had a crisp golden brown exterior with a tender, juicy interior that highly resembled the texture of real meat. Love the creamy carbonara-alike sauce that paired well with the chewy and juicy button mushrooms that came with a pleasant earthy note. The artisan buns were soft and fluffy, embedded with pumpkin seeds and nuts for that extra fibre. For every set meal ordered, you get to choose between broccoli or seaweed fries for the side and a cup of cooler to go along with. My cravings for fast food yet trying to indulge with less guilt made possible with veganburg's plant based burgers that are both healthy and yummy!πŸ˜‹

The satay sauce is thick with a slightly gritty texture, infused with exotic spices and herbs that came with a lingering spiciness. Flavourful and aromatic, a complementary pairing to the dense, compact and tender grilled soy patty. Along with a sweet, juicy pineapple that added a tangy flavour, the raw greens added a pleasant crunch factor as well .

The stall is located within the hawker centre at queen street (near the temple) which is pretty easy to spot with its prominent signage (swipe to the end). The thunder tea soup had a robust, pleasant earthy note that actually exceeded my expectations for a hawker stall. Atop the bed of brown rice (white rice is also available), an assortment of greens: cabbage, long beans, spinach, tofu cubes, turnips, ikan bilis, floss and peanuts (which I requested to be omitted). The different elements provided a crunchy, juicy mouthfeel to the grainy brown rice which also resulted in a flavourful outcome. Pair it with the hot thunder tea soup for a hearty, wholesome yet satisfying and guilt/free meal! A place I would highly recommend for thunder tea rice, given its pocket-friendly pricing and substantial portion. πŸ’š

😨 Thanks @welldressedsaladbarsg for the special reservation! No regrets travelling all the way for this brownie which was fudgy, dense and sufficiently moist πŸ’š. The green tea flavour was distinctive with a lingering jasmine-alike floral fragrance. Coupled with a pleasant tinge of sweetness of white chocolate and dark chocolate drizzles, I would personally recommend consuming this warm(instead of chilled as recommended by the staff) for a more distinctive and prominent matcha flavour, as well as a softer and more fluffy texture. Pair it with the vegan ice creams offered (a pity matcha was sold out on my visit 😭) for a perfect hot-and-cold combination πŸ’š What's more, u get to enjoy $1 off every cake + ice cream combo! πŸ˜‰ .

The thunder tea soup is served piping hot in a mini jug that was thick with the characteristic earthy flavour that was robust and lingering. One of the best lei cha soup I've had which surprisingly exceeded my expectations with its thick, concentrated texture that bears an intense earthy note. So unlike most places that serves up diluted soupπŸ˜…. The seemingly small portion is definitely sufficient for the entire dish but if you are a hardcore fan of thunder tea, feel free to go ahead with an extra portion of soup at an additional cost of $2.90. Though the traditional way of consuming lei cha is to pour the soup into the bowl of rice and mix it up, I would personally prefer consuming the two elements in silo to fully savour the flavour of the soup (and also to prevent sogginess to my rice πŸ˜…). The ones here also came with vegetarian floss atop the fragrant brown rice that added a pleasant umami flavour. Coupled with the crunch of the assorted greens, it's definitely a hearty, wholesome and satisfying meal- especially at times when you are trying to eat clean πŸ™ˆ.

πŸ’– The batter of the golden brown exterior was crisp and cracker-like, with an interior of soft, chewy bite sized mushroom chunks. Sprinkled with ProvenΓ§al spices that added a pleasant umami seaweed-like flavour and a fragrance of spices, it was an addictive side dish that I couldn't stop munching on- if only I can have this as my movie snack! πŸ˜†.
