The vegan food vogue
No meat? No problem! Have a taste of vegan food at VeganBurg, Café Salivation and Sarnies Café.
We all know that Singapore is a blissful food paradise for food lovers. But what if you have a non-conventional diet?
For the vegans and healthy foodies out there, here are our top three dining eateries – vegan style!
(Psst: Check out the special promotions at the end of this article too!)
1. Vegan burgers @ VeganBurg
Want to try some vegan burgers…or shall we say, vurgers?
We tried VeganBurg’s homemade Smoky BBQ burger. The fresh ingredients used and the strong BBQ flavour helps one forget that they are even eating a vegan burger in the first place.
Aside from the generous BBQ sauce (which I found a bit strong) and the soft and fluffy organic wholemeal bun, I loved how the pan-grilled mushroom patty was crispy outside but tender on the inside.
I also tasted the Seaweed Fries which complimented the burger well. Customers can even replace the fries with a unique alternative: broccoli.
The health-conscious can also opt for grease-free, soy patty burgers stuffed with leafy veggies and tomatoes at the restaurant.

2. Vegan pasta @ Café Salivation
When it came to pasta, Café Salivation’s Spaghetti Soya Bolognese was my pick. A delicious fusion of Indian and Western cuisine, the pasta was rich with herbs and spices.
Café Salivation took almost six months of innovative and experimental research to perfect its recipe and replicate the taste of non-vegan pasta. Their Spinach Lasagna is another hot-selling vegan pasta in the franchise.
Other than vegan pasta, Café Salivation also offers a range of eggless cakes such as the Black Forest Brownie. The chocolate taste is not too strong and could be a slight let down for those with a sweet tooth or chocolate lovers (like yours truly, but this makes the brownie a healthy option.
3. Vegan soft serve @ Sarnies Café
For dessert, indulge in the guilt-free and gluten-free vegan soft serve: Cocowhip. In fact, I feel Cocowhip is the authentic, 97 per cent fat-free soft serve you must taste. Using coconut water as an alternative to milk, they assert that zero cows are suffering or killed in the process of producing soft serve.
Cocowhip soft serve is available at Sarnies Café, a café that has the Aussie feels. Upon entering, I felt like I was in a different country, because most of the patrons were Ang Mohs – which makes Sarnies Café all the more interesting!
The coconut flavour in the original Cocowhip might taste a little overpowering despite the generous toffee topping, but it gets a thumbs-up from coconut lovers like me!
We also tried the Cocowhip breakfast bowl which is essentially a soft serve accompanied by fresh seasonal fruits and nut medley. Somehow the coconut taste was not as strong in the breakfast bowl.
Cocowhip was surprisingly filling and makes a great healthy breakfast alternative. It also breaks all stereotypes about soft serve being a dessert, as this unique dish is only available for breakfast.
