For Immediate Release:

Singapore – Hungry diners in search of healthy and delicious plant-based cuisine in Singapore can find everything from vegan chicken and waffles to meat-free pulled barbecue and dairy-free mac ‘n’ cheese. Thanks to its roaring vegan scene, “The Lion City” has earned the number two spot on PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Cities in Asia.

“Whether you’re looking for first-rate artisanal food, a decadent dessert, or a low-key lunch, Singapore has the vegan restaurant for you”, says PETA Vice President of International Campaigns Jason Baker. “PETA loves Singapore for its top-notch cruelty-free grub that satisfies appetites while being kind to animals.”

Pigs, cows, and chickens are individuals with feelings – they experience love, happiness, loneliness, and fear, just as dogs, cats, and humans do. Most animals who are raised for food are confined to filthy warehouses, where they’re deprived of everything that’s natural and important to them.

Included among Singapore’s all-vegan eateries are VeganBurg, which features an impressive variety of “meaty” plant-based burgers slathered with dairy-free mayonnaise and sweet smoky barbecue sauce, while Genesis Vegan Restaurant prepares “fish head” vermicelli, “chicken” rice and vegan cheesecake. Diners can find meat-free versions of traditional dishes such as nyonya laksa, mee pok, and orh nee at Loving Hut and vegan char kway teow and tofu goreng at VegCafe. Among the standout dishes at fast-food joint nomVnom is the QQ Cheezy burger, and Brownice Italian Vegan Ice Cream & Kitchen is famous for its vegan barbecue chicken pizza, waffles, brownies, ice cream, and more. Compassionate diners can also feed their hunger for nutty buah keluak at Whole Earth Vegetarian, Singapore’s only Peranakan-Thai vegetarian restaurant, or they can fill up on clay-pot “chicken” curry at Gokul Vegetarian Restaurant or grab a falafel at Fill a Pita – and don’t miss out on the vegan durian cake at HotCakes!
