Herbivore is a restaurant tucked away in a corner at Fortune Centre that’s decked in dark wood furnishings and warm lights, creating a zen atmosphere. This restaurant serves Japanese vegetarian fare and is well-loved by many patrons.
We recommend the Vegan Unagi Maki ($15++), which stars teriyaki tofu unagi, avocado, and cucumber wrapped in Japanese pearl rice. The Vegan Spicy Ramen Set ($18+) is also worth a shot—this set meal comes with a bowl of highly savoury ramen and a side of pan-fried gyoza dumplings that are filled with assorted vegetables and mushrooms. Sashimi fans, be sure to check out the Vegan Salmon Sashimi ($20++) that’s made with konjac jelly.

Lei cha, AKA thunder tea rice, is a great option if you’re looking to eat something healthy. Living Wholesome Vegetarian is where you can find this dish but with a twist: they serve it with bee hoon instead of rice.
Priced at $5.90, the Thunder Tea Beehoon Set is loaded with peanuts, blanched vegetables, and tofu, while boasting a good balance of salty, sweet, and bitter notes.

New Green Pasture Cafe is where you’ll find healthy salads, soups, hand rolls, sandwiches, and rice sets. This restaurant uses only organic ingredients, hence the slightly steeper price points. The Penang Laksa ($10.30+) and Miso Mee Swa ($13.80+) are what most regular customers come for. The former is said to have an addictive spiciness that’s offset by the slight tang of tamarind, while the Miso Mee Swa is more savoury with an umami kick.
