Stumbled upon Real Food Café while I was on my way to a meeting with Nuffnang back in Singapore. So I managed to convince Huiwen and Amanda to have lunch and our meeting there 😛

All-vegetarian food @ Real Food
The set-up was simple, cosy and typically like every other organic stores...
To be honest, we only realized that it was a vegan restaurant upon reading everything on the menu. There were no fish, chicken or meat in any of the dishes!
Huiwen & Amanda both tried the Mushroom Aglio Olio (SGD7.80) which they found to be surprisingly tasty and filling.
They also tried the Organic Lemonade and Organic Cola carbonated drink (SGD4.00 each). You can choose to add a scoop of vegan ice-cream with the Organic Cola or Creaming Soda, but this time, the girls didn't feel like pigging out!

I had the Pesto Pasta (SGD8.80) and Wheatgrass Apple juice (SGD4.60). I wouldn't say it was mind-blowing but I did like the French beans with my pasta.

The dish could use a little bit more flavor – perhaps some garlic would do the trick. I sprinkled a little too much seasoning on it (I think it was paprika powder…) which made it tastier but my stomach was burning by the time I finished everything on the plate. I should really take my doctor’s advice and lay off the spicy food until my acid reflux has gone down. But man, I just can’t live without spice.

The Wheatgrass Apple juice was recommended by the waitress and I liked it. It tasted more like apple juice than wheatgrass but was certainly refreshing.

Thoughts: While the food is reasonably priced, the dishes are fairly easy to prepare for yourself at home. Everything on the menu is so healthy that they don’t even do fries! It’s nice to see that there’s finally an organic vegan restaurant in town, perhaps they’ll bring Whole Foods to Singapore too? Although, I highly doubt it as the prices will be insane.

Speaking of which, would I be vegan if I wanted to? The answer is yes. But I don’t think I’m ready to commit on giving up fish and chicken. I could maybe try it out for a week though. We’ll see about that.

KL, when are you going to catch up and start opening up more healthy restaurant/cafe spots?

Real Foods is located at Central (Clarke Quay) at#B1-52/53.

  1. When you’re back in Singapore, you can try organic vegetarian food at Fortune Centre, the yellow building just beside Campus 1 of NAFA. There’re a few stalls selling organic vegetarian food (a few on the 2nd level and 1 on the last) and their food is healthy and tasty, too!

  2. hey! hmm about going vegan right, why not go pescatarian? that way, you do not have to give up fish & seafood, but no land animals though, (chicken, beef, lamb etc). i’ve been a pescan for about a year now,and i feel really great about it! just thought of sharing, takec.
