XD Comprising of seaweed soy patty (for the protein component), topped with β€œIkan bilis”- a clever substitution of dried, crispy mushrooms, roasted peanuts, cucumber slices, fresh coral lettuce and lastly, not forgetting the essential nasi lemak chilli. As a fan of spicy food, I would say the nasi lemak chilli here is no kick and I would personally prefer if there was a greater fiery factor! 😬 In fact the spicy satay sauce packs a greater punch of spice as compared to the chilli here. Nevertheless, this was still a winning combination that bears a striking resemblance to a leggit nasi lemak. The seaweed soy patty was flavourful and β€˜tender’ whereas the dried mushrooms and roasted peanuts added a pleasant crunch factor. Coupled with slices of cucumber that was crunchy, refreshing, each burger order comes with a small shot of apple cider that makes a great kickstart to the meal. Thanks @nomvnom_sg for the pleasant service and enjoyable meal that never fails to disappoint always. Lost count on the number of times I have tried the food at @nomvnom_sg (though it’s my first visit to the Tai seng outlet). Given the wide variety of options and interesting, creative flavours, I would certainly be back for more! πŸ˜‰

πŸ”₯ Comprising of QQ mushroom stem patties, spicy satay sauce (warning: the spiciness is no joke!), coral lettuce and purple cabbage embedded within a wholemeal bun, the staff even warned us about the spiciness prior to our order. No regrets indeed as being a fan of spicy food, this was shiok and not a great kick for me! ✌🏻 The mushroom stem patties were deep fried to a crisp, panko-crusted exterior while encasing chewy and juicy mushroom stems. Coupled with fresh coral lettuce and purple cabbage for a refreshing crunch, the spicy satay sauce was thick, creamy and flavourful with an aromatic, lingering spice that packs a punch! πŸ’₯ For a fulfilling meal, you can also opt for the combo meal where u get a burger, a side and a beverage at $2 off/ set. I opted for the mushroomy mashed potato as my side and cold matcha latte for the beverage. Reviews for these will be up in the next post, stay tuned! :) In case you are wondering, the burgers here are all vegan and hence meatless. Great for the herbivores and for those who wants to go green on their diet! 🌱

Featuring charcoal buns that comes with a spooky face πŸ‘½, each set is served with frizzy fries (yay to twister curly fries πŸ’–) and a witch’s kiwi brew (kiwi chiller πŸ₯πŸΈ). Encased within the soft and fluffy charcoal buns lies a thick layer of panko crusted soy patty, fried to a crisp and well-breaded perfection with a β€œtender” minced soy filling. Along with fresh crisp lettuce, tomato, onion rings (raw) , the burger also comes with barbecue sauce (slathered beneath the lettuce) and mayonnaise (on top of the tomato) that added a tangy note and a creamy texture. Love the frizzy twister fries that’s crispy and addictive, if only there was more!! 😬 The witch’s kiwi brew was pretty mediocre, just the usual kiwi flavored chiller with a unique presentation in a cup adorned with raspberry syrup on its edge. Though the raspberry syrup was kind of negligible here, given it’s mere presence that subsided within seconds 😒. Nevertheless, the kiwi brew is a mandatory refreshing chiller for the thriller! (PS: swipe to view the thriller - a feast for the sight before the sense! 🌬πŸŒͺ )

A vegan-ised version of the Singaporean famous local dish, this fiber-fueled wholemeal bun sandwiches a konjac "crab meat" plant protein patty, fresh romaine lettuce, topped with homemade chilli krab sauce made from handcrafted traditional rempah. An option to have it with or without onion&garlic, which I opted for the latter as I was on a strict vegan diet that day for some reason. Nevertheless, even without the addition of the spices, the sauce was flavourful and packs a punch! Tangy with a lingering spiciness, the rempah chilli "crab" sauce highly resembled those of the local tze char in terms of appearance and texture, a slightly thick and lumpy viscosity. The copious amount of sauce provided (PS: beware of your hands while eating) was literally dripping with each bite, providing the bulk of flavours to the "crabmeat" patty that came with a crisp battered exterior encasing a chunky, fishcake-alike interior of konjac. Along with a crunchy romaine lettuce, the bun was also soft and fluffy. Available as an ala carte or set meal (choice of broccoli/ fries), this burger was a tad pricier than the rest but certainly worth a try at least once if you are a fan of the signature local dish. What's more, you can also reserve through @eatigo_sg and enjoy savings of up to 50% off to lighten the burden to your wallet πŸ˜‰. (PS: Look out for their Halloween special that is soon to be launched!) .

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˜†. [PS: Do head over to @idealitesingapore 's Facebook page, share their post and get a free serving of this tempura mushroom!πŸ˜‰].
