Musafir Tip: Definition of ‘vegetarian’ in Singapore
The Chinese and Malay sometimes have a different understanding of the word ‘vegetarian’. You may find ‘vegetable soup’ with chunks of chicken, the logic being that if any dish has vegetables it is vegetarian! The solution is to be highly specific while ordering your food – don’t just say ‘vegetarian’; but stress that you eat ‘no meat’, ‘no seafood’ and ‘no egg’. And do make sure that you have been understood!
Now that you know where you can satisfy your taste buds with some tasty vegetarian dishes, all that is left to do is set off to Singapore, and you can do that with our Singapore tour package. Happy eating!
