Vegetarian Food Review: Sufood Singapore at #02-19 Raffles City S179103

Famous Taiwanese vegetarian chain Sufood has come to our shores by collaborating with the folks from Putien. Finally, vegetarian diners now have a healthy and non-apologetic option to go to in town, where it is conveniently located at Raffles City.

Non-apologetic you read? Yes. I find that often times, vegetarian food here consists of a lot of mock meat, which is typically soy in various forms made to taste like meat because chefs are unable to create dishes from scratch without meat flavors OR diners are unable to comprehend a dish that doesn't come with meat (all veggies, so expensive and not satisfying!)

That is why I found Sufood to be so refreshing -- as explained by our host, the chef has done extensive R&D into creating dishes using the natural flavors of the ingredients, in a Asian style. So for example, the use of seaweed (the original source of MSG) to layer it on top of their pizzas. Mushrooms are also used to a large extent to provide protein as the alternative.

So here's what we had that day. It was the Italian-inspired $25++ menu set, which comprised of 1 starter, 1 soup, 1 main and 1 dessert, plus two drinks. Really value for money!

First we had the very addictive bread sticks and dip, to go with the lightly refreshing trio of appetizers.

Then there's salad. I would definitely pick the mushroom salad amongst the salad choices because I really enjoyed the taste of the fresh mushrooms.

Plus a choice of soup. The pumpkin was rather bland, but the Root Soup was wonderful. I hope the chef will improve on the pumpkin, because I typically love pumpkin!

The favorite of the night was the main course - the Wild Mushroom Charcoal Tagliatelle. The mushroom was juicy and plump, while the pasta was al dente and flavoured just right.

We also tried the Star Pizza, which is so innovative and addictive -- it's almost like a light pastry or tea time snack! The huge mound of seaweed on top gave it unique touch. 

I also really enjoyed the desserts because they were so fun. There was the sesame panna cotta, which was creamy and smooth. Sesame is good for your hair, apparently. 

The Osmanthus Flower Jelly was quite standard, similar to what you can get from Chinese restaurants.

And lastly, the crowd favorite, vanilla ice cream with ready-to-harden chocolate that you can drizzle over, to create interesting "covers". I really liked this because its fun to eat and create.

Contemporary Asian/Western vegetarian cuisine done right, Sufood is set to enjoy many patrons to their doors as I would imagine it to be perfect to visit for a change, as well as to bring your parents or even grandparents who are vegetarians to try out!
