VeganBurg

It was a total spur of the moment that we ended up at VeganBurg. Had previously heard about it from Tiny Island, and just as we were driving past it, my father said he’d heard about it too. That was good enough reason to stop by and try it out, never mind it was only 5pm and not really dinner time yet!

VeganBurg looks quite nice and inviting. I like the bright and woody feel to the place. 3/4 of the seats were taken up, not bad for 5pm and a place slightly off the beaten track. It’s only 5 minutes from Eunos MRT station and just off the turn-off from the PIE, but not along the main pedestrian routes.

VeganBurg specialises in vegan fast food burgers. There are only 5 burgers to choose from, but it seems they also have a 6th Christmas themed one. In addition, they offer sides like seaweed fries, vegandog (like a hotdog), potato spinach pops etc. The potato spinach pops sounds interesting, wish I’d ordered that! Coffee is quite affordable too. A cafe latte costs $3.80. We didn’t try the coffee since we were trying to keep with the healthy theme here. Click the photo below to see the menu.

Vegan Burger Drinks

The burger meal comes with drinks and fries. We chose the Apple Blackcurrant and Beetroot Carrot. Tastes quite nice but unfortunately, the drinks come out of a bottle and aren’t freshly made.

VeganBurg - Hawaiian Pineapple

My father tried the Hawaiian Pineapple Burger – Organic Ciabatta bun with a pan-grilled pineapple slice and a soya patty glazed with sweet plum sauce. He didn’t enjoy the burger and said it was  too plain.

VeganBurg - Tangy Tartar (2)

I had the Tangy Tartar Burger – Organic Wholemeal Bread, soft and flaky Vegan patty that is bread crumbed and battered and deep fried, tangy tartar sauce with alfalfa. I thought it was quite good actually! The bread was soft and light, while the patty had a very nice texture. I can’t really describe the flavour, to say it tastes like soya beans would be wrong. I’ll just say that if you didn’t tell me this was a vegan patty, I may not have known. I do wish they had reduced on the Tartar Sauce, I had to use a fry to scoop the excess out.

VeganBurg - Tangy Tartar

The chilli dips have onion powder in them. Tasty! Try dipping the fries in the pepper mix too, tastes great. I often dip my fries in pepper at McDonalds, does anyone out there do the same?

VeganBurg Seating Area

Each table has a magazine slot with magazines in them. A nice touch.

VeganBurg Santa

Great to know that Santa doesn’t eat meat. How did he get so fat then?

 

VeganBurg
Veganburg is situated next to a pet store. There will be kitties strolling past outside but they are cute and harmless. The flatface kitty next door also likes a good rub. He was enjoying it very much!

Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

One of my favourite kaya bun places. These buns are soft and somewhat dense, which I think is a good way to enjoy kaya. I don’t really like the fluffy types because I feel like I am eating air. They are open everyday except Mondays. They often run out of buns on Sunday afternoons because they don’t want to have left over buns which will not be sold on Monday. You still can get the flat square breads (like the Gardenia types) if the buns run out. I prefer the flat ones because they toast them longer.

Apart from kaya buns, Chin Mee Chin offers cream buns, Swiss Rolls, chiffon type cakes and cupcakes. The cupcakes are tiny little things that come in several different flavours:- Chocolate icing, almond, and plain. Other than these, CMC doesn’t offer much else. People still flock here nonetheless because this place is just so old school. It brings back memories of a simpler time. My father has been coming here for more than 30 years and knows the staff well. He was once even interviewed on TV when they happened to be doing a documentary on CMC!Chin Mee Chin Kaya Buns

Fullerton Hotel Gingerbread

Isn’t this quite an amazing piece of cookery art? Some talented chef has fashioned the entire Fullerton Hotel out of Gingerbread. I want to peel off a pillar and chomp on it!

Hello New Office

Swimming Pool

At this point in time, this is about the only thing that I am looking forward to from the impending office move. I really hate to have to say good bye to City Hall! Today wasn’t exactly the best of days to conduct a site visit to the new office. The sky was so hazy, it made the grey-themed buildings even greyer. The “vast expanse of sea views” was lost to the haze as well. The chartered bus took more than 1/2 hour to get from our current office to the new one. I feel so depressed about it! It doesn’t even look that far based on the map.
