Are you a meat lover and shun at the idea of having a vegetarian meal? Although there may be many health benefits for adopting a vegetarian diet, it is not uncommon to see an average person choosing meat over vegetables. This could be due to factors such as taste preferences or habits, which have been moulded over many years and hard to change.
Despite the challenges involved when it comes to switching dietary habits, the improved awareness to the need to eat healthy, and increased vegetarian food options available in Singapore, are encouraging more people to try vegetarian cuisine. Here are five of the best vegetarian restaurants that can potentially make you a convert before you know it –

Be intrigued by the stylish eight-course vegetarian set meal at Sufood, a restaurant chain hailing from Taiwan with it’s first branch opening in Singapore two years ago!
