Vegetarian restaurants have definitely come a long way in the past decade. No longer are they places with some sad, limp vegetables, and a couple of weird looking dumplings that you think taste like cardboard. Here are 4 spots with delicious, healthy vegetarian food with creative twists!
While vegetarian Indian food is certainly nothing new, Adda spices things up with their fun creations and recipes that you definitely don’t want to miss! Located off the side of Beach Road, Adda is a popular spot for their intoxicating atmosphere and good bites – and that of course includes their vegetarian options as well!
For starters, we recommend their signature Adda Nachos ($14), served with chargrilled cottage cheese and spiced salsa queso! Other fun dishes to look out for include the Prata Quesadillas ($18) and the vegetarian Bollywood Burger Sliders ($18), featuring a beetroot bun with spicy roasted mushrooms!

Whole Earth –
With close to 2 decades of history and several Michelin Bib Gourmand awards, Whole Earth is no stranger to the scene of vegetarian cuisine. Whole Earth specialises in their own unique style of plant-based, Peranakan-Thai fusion dishes. This combination of spices with vegetables, legumes, mushrooms, and grains creates a unique dining experience that’s hard to find anywhere else.
Feeling hungry yet? Their standout dishes include the Enchanted Forest ($25), which features a blend of monkeyhead mushrooms and broccoli drizzled in their own blend of angelica root and wolfberry sauce. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of spice, their rendition of Nonya Curry ($21) is another great pick, with a thick, savoury curry sauce over shiitake mushrooms and potatoes.

Love Handle –
While a “Plant-Based Butcher” may seem like an oxymoron, Love Handle’s plant based meats will probably leave you pleasantly surprised! Located on the slopes of Ann Siang Hill in Chinatown, they’ve got an impressive menu of burgers, sandwiches, and even mains like Chicken Rice!
Looking for recommendations? If burgers are your thing, be sure to try their Love Handle OG ($24), which presents with a wonderful combination of smashed Impossible patties and caramelized onions. While you’re at it, keep an eye out for their Impossibro Wellington ($28), their very own vegetarian version of the classic Beef Wellington!
