Prata Wala @tampinese

Awww maaaaan! 
It's back to school so my food adventures are cut down a little bit T.T  
But anyway, love knows no boundaries yo!
GOOD FOOD, here I am waitinnn' :DDD!

We were miraculously released early at the weirdest time 11+ am (nursing students can understand why) 
So we decided to go get some better food rather than in school. Because I'm vegan my friends had to decide soemwhere that at least sells vegetarian stuff hahaha :X so we decided on prata wala cuz they HAVE vegetarian options

Vegetarian Briyani (6.90)

I'm sorry for this "unglamorous" shot of the food, WAS JUST TOO HUNGRY TO SPEND 30 minutes taking a perfect shot! It tastes REALLY GOOD but the camera makes it look average and bad ain't it? :p hahaha 
First off when you order, the person will ask you to choose 3 vegetables on the top shelf. 
The first one being number 1, second being 2, 3 
I chose Potato, eggplants (super faveee) and Okra :D ,  with a free cup of vegetarian curry!

My friends ordered their chicken curry with rice and once the food arrived, everybody ate and because it tasted good no one talked during the whole time we were eating~

Anyway I find the price really reasonable because of the portion! Was expecting 8 dollars or smth.  You gotta understand- This store is in a shopping centre by itself not inside the food court so if it's 6.90(or 7 dollars) with this big portion and extra serving of curry, it's pretty worth it :P
My food and Surya and syafiqah's chicken and vegetable curry rice :D!

Currently pooping and the smell of curry is so strong HAHAHAH!

Something sweet @sembawang

Red bean paste with red bean glutinous ball (4.00)
Rating: 4.5/5 cos I know there's even better ones out there 

NICE! If you're a red bean fan, you sure like one. Smooth natural tasting red bean texture, not artificially sweet at all. You just know that it's purely made.

JJ Thai @Sembawang

Imma back with a new food adventure, located opposite Sembawang shopping centre , beside the You huak white bee hoon stall, JJ THAI !
And I'm really glad to live somewhat near there hohoho.

Firstly, I noticed that the atmosphere of the stall was good- all the staff(mostly thai and phillipine) were genuinely caring and friendly towards each other and the customers, unlike some stalls where the workers don't even interact and you can just see that they hate everyone even their innocent customers lol.
AND .. I'm super surprised... Even when they are full house, and super busy, they serve our food within 10 minutes of ordering! 
 Mother of all SAUCERY! :P

Everything on the menu had meat in it but I told them not to put meat, egg or any dairy products in them :D

Mixed veggies (6.00) 
Rate: 3.5/5

It tastes good! Not oily like the Cai fan types neither is it watery type . Taste just right for me 
Broccoli, carrot, cAbbage, mushroom...

Sorry har I didn't edit the pictures that's why the quality not nice. But like that good what, at least y'all will see how it really looks like without all that Fake lighting and editing etc! Well, Not like I don't use them hahaha :p 

Fried vermicelli (6.00 if I'm not wrong)
Rate: 4/5

Hahaha forgive me for not noticing the price but I know it was around 5-6 dollars  X:! It just looked too good to even look at the price once more
Looks normal tastes alright, bcos it isn't as salty as I wished it to be T.T just add soya sauce abit can le :9

(Mango sticky rice 3-4.00 , Red ruby 3-4.00)
Rate: 5/5 really like it :D!

Forgive me for forgetting the pricing again. But it's within this range, and it's affordable! :D 
My mango sticky rice is Not like those soo sweet kinds! And also not no taste kind
Instead it's in the middle lor, very nice sia! 
Creamy from the Coconut milk and sweet sticky from the glutinous rice and mango.. WAHHH I WANNA GO AGAIN LIKE RIGHTT NOW HAHAHA

AND . The red ruby? JUST AS GOOD ! Creamy coconut milk, some ice, red ruby bits and sago= SHIOK TTM !

My sisters's seafood tomyam soup and pork basil rice,  and my "customized till vegetarian" Fried vermicelli and mixed veggies :D


'Customized till vegetarian' Pineapple fried rice (5-6.00)
Rate: 4/5

SEDAP PE! The fragrance of the rice, and the moderate sweetness of the pineapple. There's not too much or too little of anything, it just seems like whatever they cook is just right in amount, portion and ingredients :)!
Eat there until so happy sia , thai food FTW :D! 

Ps: Non-vegans, other than all the normal thai food: tomyam,pad thai, olive rice, etcetc  there's also a  MOOKATA (Thai steamboat with meats) in JJ THAI :D!

Ok lah tmr school must wakeup early, goodnight food fans :D!

Lime ice jelly @You Huak

                             Lime ice jelly ($2- $2.50)
The vegan girl can't eat You Huak's Bai mi fen/white noodles because it has seafood and egg in it so I just got their Lime jelly :D 
It does pack a punch for anyone who looooves sour stuff, followed by a sweet aftertaste.
The transparent gelatin feels so chilled as I bite into it :D! Softens the sourness of the lime juice around if.
Squeeze the lime, even more sour!
Personally Im not a fan of sour stuff. So I prefer the Lime juice that Adeline got, because it wasn't as sour as the lime jelly
Adeline loves sour stuff so she ended up eating the Jelly for me and she LOVES IT!  
Sour-lovers, confirm shiok for y'all! 

Brownice @upper Thomson(pt 2)

My Tummy says YESYES but my wallet says NONO 

Went with my Vivian cupcake to Brownice today, got lost and a kind uncle showed us the way, Xiexie uncle :D!

Pumpkin Alfredo (12.80)
Guaranteed yummy! ALmost everyone who eats this dish likes it. 
I did like it but not as much as the Spinach Hedgehog pizza, because for me I prefer something that is a little saltier. :D
But their bits of mock ham was delicious! Wished it was really big !
However Vivian really liked this dish that she ate everything and left me only a few pieces of penne 

Spinach Hedgehog (16.90)

Worth the price, vegans!  Nut cheese, spinach paste, tomato sauce, tomatoes, mushroom, and nut? Health food altogether man! Not to mention, the DELICIOUS VERSION ! 

Salted caramel tart (7.80 ala carte) with pure hazelnut, hazelnut chocolate and peanutbutter chocolate ice cream(3.80 per scoop, 3 scoops @7.90) 

And the taste of the hazelnut was so strong, taste like ferrero Roche!  it felt like I was really eating a  hazelnut by itself-only in ice cream form! Not like those normal ice creams that put so much of dairy it's like 20% the flavour and 80% smothered with other ingredients that it ain't taste like that flavour anymore. 
Choco peanut butter- Wow. Just pure peanut butter with chocolate in ice cream form. Soooo good. Y'all should know how peanut butter and choco tastes like right,  Nuff said. So delicious
Hazelnut choco- imagine eating a hazelnut with a chocolate bar. With more sweetness and smooth texture. Brings me on cloud 9! 

NOW, Vivian is in love with Brownice! HAHAHAHA 

Brownice @Sin Ming Centre

Today's post will be about this well-known Vegan food store called "Brownice"
I don't know if it's supposed to be pronounced as "Brown ice", "Brown nice"/ "brownies" , as pronounced by one of my vegan friends 😂
Originally it sold Ice cream only but now it selling pizzas pastas sandwiches cakes.. Wowowee!

Anyway we walked to Brownice from Marymount mrt was yes it was like a long walk of 10-15 mins. When you wanna eat, the time to reach the place always feels like the longest xD!
Actually, it was only at upper Thomson and we could have taken a bus there 😂
All that effort...

When we entered, their signboard of pizzas greeted out eyes!
WOAH, so we didn't sit down yet, immediately order because so hungry .
We couldn't decide what to order so just Eenie movie meenie moe anything also can:
"Tofu crumble" and "Breakfast pizza"
We also sampled ALL the choices of ice cream- Chrismas special (chocolate and mint), coconut,strawberry,green tea,pure hazelnut, hazelnut coffee,dark chocolate,French chocolate,Madagascar vanilla, and a few others.
Their ice creams sometimes got change flavour one not always the same, interesting...

----15 minutes later ----

                                                           Breakfast Pizza

*pizza on table*

The breakfast pizza has nut cheese, baked beans, HASHBROWNS <3! ,
Crusts of the pizzas are thin and crisp :9
And, Gotta LOVE the nut cheese  !
How can it be hard to go vegan when there's so much awesome lovely yummy delicious tasteful nommable vegan food!? :D
I feel that , everyone thinks being vegan is just boring veggies with rice but that's so not true. Like that we all have died of boredom!

Todu crumble (11.80)
The appearance of the tofu pizza looks like a normal minced meat pizza.
But it has Nut cheese, tomato pasta and minced tofu! Doesn't look that good, but the taste was fine :D!
Personally, the breakfast still tastes better to me, probably cos I love hashbrowns :D!

After 10 minutes we were still hungry so we wanted to order some dessert like maybe a waffle with ice cream or their cake. BUT BEING GIRLS WE COULDNT DECIDE. so end up just anyhow make decision.

We ordered a salted caramel ice cream cake, and for the ice cream, LADYBOSS recommended coconut goes well with this salted caramel ice cream cake, so we got that and with another scoop of  strawberry ice cream.

THE CAKE WAS SO DELICIOUS! I mean not just delicious. But delicious delicious delicious that kind!
Salted caramel cake (7.80 ala carte, 10+ with one scoop of ice cream) 
The top of the cake was salted caramel chocolate and the bottom later was soft creamy buttery nutty base, like fudge texture, lastly a cookie base!
I wish that you guys can lick the picture of the cake and taste it hahaha!
Sang was not a dessert person so when we got the cake she was like anything la... If u all want to eat..
And she doesn't like nuts
When she ate the cake she kept eating more and more. Within 5 minutes the cake was gone.

And the ice cream, altho without any milk and any dairy stuffs, WAS JUST PURE FRESHNESS .
Like, Healthy guilt free nourishing natural ice cream

Altho we were all sharing the dessert, everyone  was controlling themselves from wolfing the cake down to themselves hahaha!
Becos ladies don't wanna be fat ma so all share one dessert X:   jk

Being Vegan/vegetarian @Fat Boys Burger Bar

'That rare vegetarian/vegan find in your local restaurant' line, isnt really true. 
Thank God we live in Singapore! (because we have many of vegetarians, due to some of their religions)
Yesterday, i went to our regular food haunt, 
A TOTAL meat burger restaurant and I still remembered the first time i went there i was like: Oh no my friends wanna eat here but i'm vegan.. how ah.
At the bottom of the page was a Vegetarian/vegan option.
A portobello something-something burger ($11+)
OR much better, a  BUILD-YOUR-OWN-BURGER section where you can customize  your burger and add any ingredient you want 
Gotta pay for each ingredient when you build you own burger so the more u add the more you pay :)!

Obviously it sounded much more INTERESTING, SO I WENT FOR THAT :
Portobello mushrooms, Sauteed mushrooms, Beetroot, Garlic aioli, Sauteed onion and Guacamole, AND garlic aioli sauce!  :D
My Build-Your-(Vegan)-Burger,(9.80)

Everytime come here customize burger always around this price one 
All burger sett comes with a side of fries, tomatoes and lettuce :B

OH AND,For non-vegans if you add meat it'll be $8 and above for either chicken beef or lamb .

Close up :D! Aint looking too sumptious but the taste is really sumptuous!
The flavour everything stands out. When i bit into  it, the sautéed mushroom captured my taste buds, then the bouncyness of the portobello mushroom, sweet crunchiness of the beetroot, and the mushy texture , LE YUMZ taste of guacamole  and the sweetness of the garlic aioli and caramalized onions YUMYUM! 
Sorry har if you don't like it but i did enjoy it all my favourite ingredients hahaha :p 

My cheeky friend anyhow take unglam shot of me eating 
PS: Add the Maple syrup form the condiments area (near counter)  to your fries, It  tastes like delicious waffles after that!  
Non-vegans, the staff told us that the first four burgerslisted  on the fatboys menu are the BEST SELLERS! My meat eating friends love the Shroom Cheese burger, if that's what it's called :D
