The Veggie Cottage is one of the few fully vegan eateries in Singapore. A little gem of a cafe tucked between rows of unassuming shophouses in Little India, its easy not to notice it because it doesn’t have large signs or flashy banners unlike its next door neighbours. Luckily for me, I saw pictures of the exterior when Mr & Mrs Vegan blogged about it previously and spotted the red windows from far!
Initially, I told the bf that there was this new place I wanted to check out and I heard good reviews of their Fish & Chips and Nasi Lemak. And because we always dine at places where there are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, he assumed that I was referring to real meat. So I could sense his disappointment when we arrived at Veggie Cottage and he found out that the Fish & Chips was actually “Fish” & Chips! My bad, forgot to clarify :X Luckily for me, he’s really accommodating and we quickly settled in.
We reached the cafe at around 8pm (last order is at 830pm) and sadly, hot favourites like the veggie cottage pie, spaghetti and dumpling soup were sold out =( But the nice ladies at the cafe recommended us a few alternatives. By the way, the cafe menu also indicates which items contain garlic and onions, so its pretty ideal for buddhist vegetarians too!
I loved this salad! Though they don’t use fancy vegetables or ingredients , it still tasted really good and fresh. And its solely attributed to the amazing homemade vegan mayo that the chef made. YUMYUM. Vegan Salad Medley $5.50
The bf had this dish and he was eyeing this dish suspiciously as it was placed on our table. But to his (and my) surprise, he LOVED it! The fries were crispy and not over fried and they did a great job making the fish taste succulent, tender and like the real deal. Yummm. Understand that the fish patty was made from mushrooms , totally couldn’t tell. Fish & Chip > $6.50
Overall, I thought the quality of food was pretty good! Fresh ingredients and tasty dishes. The price range is pretty comfortable and value for money as all dishes are between $4 – $7. Oh one last thing, only cash is accepted at the cafe so remember to draw money if you’re going. Will definitely be back soon to try the rest of the “best sellers”!
