Vegetarian Lunch

Post by Quasimodo » Tue, 23 May 2006 4:03 pm

Bro' is flying back to Beijing in a few days, all healthy and tanned and wants to take us out to a great vegatarian restaurant . . . :-| Umm, yipee!

Having said that we took him to Sushi Tei at Paragon yesterday and he had to atch us eat fish - raw even.

Bananaleaf tomorrow lunch, so that's covered.

Any good sugegstions for excellent vegatarian restaurants that are open for lunch and are in the west or city/west?

Cheers!

You always come through, don't you Mary?! I will miss you greatly when you leave.
What kind of food does Original Sin specialise in (yes, vegs)? Also, where is Chip Bee gardens?

(Took TripleM into the freshly cleaned pool just now, all resplendant in her new daiper-like bikini bottoms - she went topless :o for the neighbours who always comment on how little clothing she has on . . . Yes, I guess when it's 35 degrees one needs a wooly hat.

Anyway, she loved it!

So surprised you've never been, Mr. Bailey and I love it. It's part of the Michaelangelo's group, on the back road of Holland Village, near da paolo and cho lon gallerey. Strictly vegetarian, no meat at all. We like the mezza platter, principessa salad, magic mushroon... hell, it's all good.

Here is some more information:

I'm told by a few vegetarians that Lingzhi, part of the Tung Lok group, is an excellent restaurant. Branches at Liat Towers (next to Wheelock Place) and Far East Square, although I realise FE Square doesn't really fit your criteria.

Thank you, seasider. I will presume that this is Chinese food? Cheers! :)

It surely is. I'm on a roll today with these recommendations, what. :)

The Liat Towers branch is quite upmarket, I am told. FE Sq more casual. Guess that makes sense in both cases.

I'd been racking my brain for last hour trying to remember the name of this place, thanks Seasider! Been to the FE Sq one a couple of times and it's very good!

Perhaps you can tell me then, Saint - do they rely heavily on tofu? I love it but have been told to go easy on it (and all soy) for health reasons. Not easy here. Thanks.

We tended to go for the steamboat buffet and you could quite easily avoided having any tofu such is the large choice of veg available.

Ahhhhhh . . . . what a lunch that was, what a day that was . . .

(All done to the tune of Mission Impossible please)
a.m. - pack TripleM into the taxi and head off to the Oz High Comm to pick up her passport -
((in another thread I will tell you how happy I am with the service there. German Embassy? Someone should dump a load of faecal matter on it! Ok, so she's an aussie now))
Pack her into another taxi and head off to MoM to get her dependants pass . . . no worries the lady will do it personally and have it done by 14.30 . . .
Pack the Gringe into another cab and off to Holland V to meet Bro' for lunch at Original Sin

(Stop Mision Impossible music)
Mmmm - excellent, excellent, excellent.
Mrs 'Cluse: Eggplant Timbale . . . [-o<
Bro': Somesort of burgers . .
Me: Principessa Salad =D>

Washed down with a few nice glasses of Merlot. lemon meringue was just ok, but the fresh rasperries were lovely.
The coffee was a bbit disappointing, but the service by a young lady from Malaysia was excellent - after having the snob treatment by some Malay thing with attitude.

(Resume Mission Impossible music)

Rining! Jump into a cab, with TripleM tipsy from the wine-wetted index finger - rush to MoM, grab a number rush upstairs, go to the counter and everything is ready = brilliant Singapore Public Servants!
the Gringe is starting to complain about being dragged in and out of cabs so off we go home . . .

Opened a bottle of my favourite sake, doimng some work and thinking it was pretty good day.


Many, many thanks for the recommendation - will definitely go again but pass on the coffee and desert.

Wow! Glad you enjoyed it. You can always walk down the street there and get a gelato at da paolo gastronomique.

Don't drink to much while you work at the computer, that's how I end up with lots of ill-fitting mail order shoes...
