    Default Any Vegan restaurants in Singapore and KL ?

    Hi all,
    A friend of mine is coming from Beijing and she is a strict Vegan. Looks like most vegetarian stalls in the foodcourts will be out too, as they don't really cater to a vegan clientele.

    I have the unenviable task of finding vegan restaurants for her in Singapore and KL.
    I suppose she will do her research before coming here, but being the host I have to make sure I do my part as well.

    One option that I know of is the Lotus restaurant in Quality Hotel at Balestier Road.

    Any other suggestions are most appreciated. Help please.

    Does your friend take dairy products (cheese,eggs, milk)? If she does then you could probably check out Original Sin. It's a vegetarian restaurant. Not Chinese food though.

    I suppose she doesn't take garlic as well? Then eating at this restaurant may not be a good idea.

    If you are looking for STRICT vege rest ... there are two i can think of that serves good Vegetarian Food.

    1) One is at Yangtse Building at Outram. It's at 2nd floor call Kwai Hou Lin. 快活林
    2) The other is at China Sq. Ling Zhi Vegetarian Restaurant.

    the 1st is very affordable. The later is classy and if you wanna provide 3 meals a day in that place... prepare alot of money.

    Thanks Melvin. I was sure you would know of some places.
    I shall go check out the restaurants next to BTRTM (too me a while to figure what it was though) one of these days. That tip on dating helps too though I have no plans of that for the moment

    friends,

    any places in KL that you've been to ?

    i know of one in China Town - run by a girl who studied in the US or Canada. One moment she speaks very sweet English with an American accent, the next moment switches to Cantonese and the very next to Mandarin. The food there is damn shiok , I just know the location, but not the address or the name of the restaurant. Not a problem though as I can give the directions to get there...
