Before there were Impossible Burgers at burger joints everywhere in Singapore, there was VeganBurg doing it first. A favourite of ours, VeganBurg make all of their burgers from a combination of soy and mushrooms and have a range of 10 different burgers that can all be customized with addons like Vegan bacon or Vegan cheese. We highly recommend their Avocado Beetroot burger which combines a plant-protein patter with fresh avocado, beetroot, lettuce, onions, and creole tomato all on an artisan bun. With many “Sidekicks” to compliment your burger including crispy fries or even char-grilled Sizzlin’ Broccoli, you are in for a good time at this Vegan institution.

9. MTR Singapore
Another highly recommended South Indian Vegetarian joint is MTR. MTR is a mainstay of Little India so expect a queue and there are no reservations but the wait is absolutely worth it.

Another winner is the Pudi Masala Dosa, a thick rice and lentil dosa topped with spiced tomatoes and chutney.
