From Singapore Hotels & Singapore Lifestyle
Strict vegetarian outlets serving vegetarian cuisine do exist in Singapore, such as Lingzhi Restaurant. Some of these are run by Chinese Buddhists. Quite often, these Restaurants make up for the meat deprivation by creating "mock" versions of chicken, shrimp, fish, pork, beef and mutton, and serving innovative dishes from these mock meats. Even their sauce mimic the non-vegetarian versions, such as mock oyster sauce.
One of the best places to eat vegetarian food is at the Kuan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple at Waterloo Street. The roadside vendors, Temple pilgrims and visitors all add to the colourful backdrop at the Kwan Im Vegetarian Restaurant in the South East Asia Hotel.
The Brahmin Hindus also have strictly vegetarian cuisine outlets and you will find that even eggs are not used in these Indian vegetarian places. There are popular chains like Komala Vilas or Ananda Bhavan, and several outlets are found in Serangoon Road or the Little India area. Some Indian vegetarians have also taken a page out of the Chinese cooking book in using "mock" meat to emulate meat dishes.
