Eating vegan isn’t a new scene in Singapore. In fact, you don’t have to be part of the vegan crowd to enjoy vegan food; many have innovated the stereotype of salads and seeds to fusions of faux meat and explosions of taste. A new favourite is letting dishes be influenced by culture and cuisines. Therefore, when you want a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine that is also vegan and delicious, look no further than Glitz fave: Herbivore.
Vegan Japanese food may seem like an oxymoron to some, considering the cuisine’s major reliance on fish. However, Japanese cuisine has a wide variety of delectable vegan dishes. Rice, noodles, veggies, seaweed, soy products, and mushrooms are all common ingredients in Japanese cuisine. Because of these contradictory characteristics, Japanese cuisine is one of the most plant-based of all cuisines while also being one of the least vegan-friendly.
In fact, ordering a vegan dinner at a normal Japanese restaurant is so difficult that you should generally avoid doing so. Many times, the dish gets agonisingly close to being completely vegan while yet falling short. However, at Herbivore, these carefully curated dishes are innovated to be vegan by replicating the taste and appearance for a spot-on taste of Japan.
Herbivore Japanese Vegetarian Restaurant is located at 190 Middle Road in Singapore, within Fortune Centre and next to Midlink Plaza. Zen Japanese Vegetarian Restaurant invented this idea, which delivers 100% vegetarian cuisine prepared in a Japanese manner, as well as a few Western items such as burgers, sandwiches, and even steaks. Eggs are not used in the preparation of any of the dishes, and garlic and onion are not used in any of the meals. Vegan sashimi and sushi rolls are available, as well as other Japanese cuisine options such as vegan ramen, tempura, hand rolls, katsu curry, gyoza, and different bento sets.
