There is a new spot for vegetarians or folks who are seeking healthier meals. Lotus Kitchen Vegetarian Restaurant dishes out over 50 contemporary Chinese vegetarian cuisines from the made-to-order dim sum to delicious local favourites such as handmade noodles and stir-fried dishes. You can indulge in a vegetarian feast prepared with natural premium ingredients and herbs such as lion’s mane mushrooms, agaricus blazei mushroom, pearl mushroom, tian ma, cordyceps flower, burdock and sugar cane sprout specially imported from Taiwan.

Ms Lee, who boasts over 13 years of experience in preparing vegetarian cuisines is the lady behind this 80-seater vegetarian restaurant. She has a penchant for mixing different herbs to create new aromatic blends as well as using homemade sauces and spices to whip up authentic local and Taiwanese vegetarian dishes. The launch of Lotus Kitchen rides on the success of its predecessor, Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant, another concept by Ms Lee. The restaurant prepares over 100 vegetarian buffet dishes daily and has numerous accolades under its belt such as Singapore’s Top 100 Signature Dish Award & Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards 2004-2005.
