At Singapore Kosher Vegetarian, carefully fanned salmon-colored napkins grace tables set with elegant silverware and mahogany and pink velvet chairs. The elegant dining room contrasts with a cluttered front desk overlooking and a few tables dedicated to prepping potstickers.
But this doesn’t detract from the experience; it gives the place a homey feel, like you’ve been invited into a friend’s kitchen for dinner; the host and wait staff is warm and informative.
The menu is confusing at first, with beef, chicken and pork on the menu of a vegetarian restaurant. But it’s all “faux meat.” And if you aren’t in the mood for tofu-based meats there are plenty of traditional veggie meals on the menu.
The miso soup consists of a hearty serving of Wakame seaweed, tofu and scallions. The lo mein with veggies is sweetly flavored with peanut oil, onions, celery and carrots. Come hungry because the portions are generous. One of the highlights of my visit was the tempura vegetables, lightly battered bite-sized treats that, light and flavorful.
The meal is traditionally completed with some nicely presented fortune cookies and orange slices; a sweet finale to a sweet dining experience.
