Herbivore 190, 13/14 Middle Rd, #1 Fortune Centre, Singapore 188973
We start our Lunch back at Fortune Centre (190 Middle Rd), where we headed because we were craving that mysteriously accurate flavour of Unagi rolls at Vegetarian/Vegan restaurant, Herbivore, that we discovered on Day 12 of our Veganuary Journey.
I loved the Unagi sushi rolls so much I decided I was going to try the entire thing. Turns out, as good as it was, the unary sushi rolls are THE BEST! So if you do go to Herbivore, which I HIGHLY recommend, I still recommend that you order the Unagi sushi rolls instead of the equally tempting Unagi bento.
We then headed up to the 2nd level, in search of the brand new Vegan bubble tea place that everybody was talking about…
First of all, let’s start with the name of this shop! ‘Mong Cha Cha’ in cantonese is used to describe a person who is stupid, clumsy or confused (according to the google dictionary). But the word ‘Cha’ also means ‘Tea’, aka Bubble ‘Tea’. Which makes the name of this shop ULTRA ADORBS if you understand the context.
Also, I had never been a fan of bubble tea due to the fact that they mostly come with milk, and/or sugar. As a person who is both dairy and sugar sensitive, I prefer to limit myself to enjoying beverages that don’t hurt my sensitive stomach.
Which makes ‘Mong Cha Cha’ SO AWESOME!
Coz finally, ANYONE can enjoy vegan bubble tea, made with freshly squeeze oat milk, and brown sugar tapioca boba, the way it was originally made in Taiwan, where the drink originated!
To top it off, ‘Mong Cha Cha’ also had 7 VEGAN ICE CREAM FLAVOURS including Durian, and matcha!
Sadly, Ice-cream is also another dessert that I haven’t been able to enjoy due to most of it being made of milk. But now, I can!!!
This evening, we had to run some errands at Somerset 313, and not knowing what to do or where to go for a vegan dinner (other than Real Food at Orchard central that we already featured in Day 9 of Veganuary), we turned to Google Maps for help. We keyed in ‘Vegan’ and tapped ‘Search this area’, and discovered that there was a small mall behind Somerset 313, called Triple 1 Somerset.
Inside it, were many little independent restaurants, a beautiful Cold Storage grocery store, and a Vegetarian dining place called ‘Green Ba’, that serves vegan options.
All in all, it was a pretty good experience, except we couldn’t have any dessert because all their desserts were only vegetarian…
Which, come to think of it, all cakes are! HAHAHAH!!
Check back in for Day 18 of Veganuary, where I prepared HOME MADE VEGAN CHICKEN RICE!!! Then head out to a sustainable clothing swap event by ‘Swapaholic You X Rentadella’, and then took Zenos’ Japanese brother from another mother, Kohey & his girlfriend Su-Chan, around Chinatown and to one of our favourite Vegetarian/Vegan restaurants everrrrrrrrr!!!
