Almost a third of Indians in India are vegetarian, so it’s no surprise that Indian vegetarian restaurants abound. See below for our favourites in Singapore. And head here for all types of vegetarian dining spots in Singapore.
While Little India is the epicentre of Indian veggie restaurants, one of the city’s best is, surprisingly, on Amoy Street in Chinatown. Annalakshmi also has a most interesting concept: eat what you want, pay what you want. The restaurant is staffed by volunteers and all donations go to charity. And the home-style curries, breads and rice dishes are excellent.
104 Amoy Street (there are also other outlets)
