In recent years vegetarianism and veganism have shifted from the margins to the mainstream. Long gone are the days of boring nut roasts and over-boiled vegetables. Thanks to increasing awareness about the environmental impact of the livestock industry, improvements in alternative proteins, Veganuary, and numerous Netflix documentaries, turning to a plant-based, animal-friendly diet is one trend we can get on board with.

And in Singapore, the number of vegan and vegetarian restaurants continues to increase (hurrah to that!). As does the number of restaurants including more plant-based menu choices; noticed the explosion of alternative proteins like Impossible™, Huera, Beyond, and OmniPork appear on menus island-wide? In addition, thanks to apps like abillion, it’s never been easier for herbivores to find something delicious to eat. If you’re looking for inspiration, here’s where you’ll likely spot a GITNB member eating in the wild. Our guide is split in two: the first section covers our favourite vegan and vegetarian restaurants. And the latter half includes our favourite restaurants that serve meat but are vegan and veggie-friendly. Happy eating!

A little slice of Paris in the heart of Sentosa, Le Faubourg’s homely vibes provide the perfect backdrop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a glass of rose. The menu is filled with French classics like sweet and savoury crepes, galettes, platters, and more. There’re plenty of vegetarian options on the menu, making it a safe choice if you’re dining with a group featuring mixed dietary requirements. And it goes without saying the wine list reads like a dream with glasses starting from $14 a pop.

Wine aficionados will be familiar with this bright, breezy spot at the foot of Club Street. It’s home to an ever-evolving selection of natural wines with a buzzy atmosphere. The best part? Its vegetarian set-lunch offering is really bl**dy good. Think burrata with pumpkin seed gremolata. Then gnocchi with hazelnut, and broccolini. Followed by a cheese selection or dessert of the day. Heck, we’ve known meat-eaters who rate the vegetarian dishes more highly than the carnivorous offerings. Go there.
Le Bon Funk: 29 Club Street, S069414 | Tues – Sat, 12:00 – 14:30 and 17:00 – 24:00.
