So, you made the decision to go against the world and turned a plant-based eater overnight. But believe it or not, taking a huge decision like this comes with its own set of hurdles. Everyone loves trying out new places almost as much as they love returning to their old favourite spots. They love exploring new menu items and discovering new ways to consume the foods they enjoy the most.
Eating out can be both a wonderful and a very risky, especially when you are on a sustainable diet. From scrutinizing the ingredients to spending hours on analysing the dishes, doubting the restaurants’ ethical policies.
Devoted plant-based eaters are on cloud nine, when they are sure that the restaurant follows a 100% sustainable food menu. They will not have the hassle spending hours on the menu and are able to order whatever they like without analysing the ingredient list.
In Dec 2019, PETA Asia declared Singapore as Asia’s second most favourite sustainable city. From Herbyvore’s Pea Paneer to Mock meat burgers and dairy free ice creams, Singapore is becoming the paradise for plant-based eaters.
