Haven’t heard of many vegetarian restaurants in Singapore actually, Sufood is actually the first vegetarian restaurant I’ve heard of. Being a subsidiary of Putian, I have no qualms on the standard of the food. And after trying their eight course meal, I can safely conclude that I’m right. I do have friends that are vegetarian and its always a challenge trying to find a place to have a meal together. I’m sure Sufood will be one of the favourite place for my vegetarian friends now! I’m not sure if this place is halal, but if there are no meat involved it could be a possible dining place for our muslim friends as well. I was really happy to invited to a food tasting event.
Before the server took our order, she took the effort to check with us if we consume garlic and onion. Some strict vegetarians do not take strong ingredients like these because it can do damage to their delicate stomach. So, its good to check! After we placed our orders the food came speedily.
The Sufood Appetiser
We’re suppose to start with the extreme left, which is radish with what seem to taste like raspberry sauce. Very crunchy and tasty. The middle dish was slightly stronger in taste. The sauce tasted a bit peanut-ish but I can’t seem to determine what it is though. The last one is my favourite! Its a bit sourish and jelly like with half a cherry tomato inside.
Bread sticks, you can catch a glimpse of it in the photo above, but we were all too hungry and we just gobbled it up. There was a sauce that came with it, tasted like honey mustard but its really a great combination. The breadsticks were crunchy yet soft as the same time.
Vinegar, its a light pink clear fluid. Doesn’t taste yucky, just a little bit sour. I suspect its to cleanse our tastebuds for the appetiser and main. I sipped it in between my dishes.
Salad: Mushroom Salad
There were four choices to choose from: Tropical fruit salad, Summer Salad, Mushroom Salad and the classic garden salad. Mushrooms are my favourite! So I had to have them! Cooked to perfection!
There were four choices as well, Cream of pumpkin, mushroom and pea pottage, cabbage and sweet potato stew and the root soup. The last two are the clear soup and the former two are the cream based soup. I like my soup. It was light and the lotus was really crunchy. There were ginkgo nuts in it as well!
Macaroni Alfredo Casserole
By the time this dish came, I was already 3/4 and after eating 1/4 of the casserole, I was already filled to the brim. Its really cheesy, with lots of greens in it. Who would have thought a main dish without any meat could taste this good. There were 7 other choices to choose from and I think I would want to try them all if I could. Hahaha.
Sesame Panna Cotta
Mint Herbal Tea
I love all things black sesame! This oriental version of the panna cotta did satisfied the dessert portion of the stomach definitely. If you’re a fan a sesame, go for this! Its milky, silky and creamy!
The mint herbal tea was meh on the other hand. I was having a pretty bad throat and wanted something to soothe it. But there wasn’t much of a minty taste though.
All in all, the experience was fabulous. Priced at $25++ its definitely very worth it. I think two girls could share a meal like that and still be filled to the brim. If you’re a vegetarian or simply just want to try out vegetarian food, this place has gotta be first on your list.
