9 fine places for vegan and vegetarian dining in Singapore

There was a time when you wouldn’t have heard the words “meatless” and “fine dining” in the same sentence in Singapore. Plant-based menus are becoming more popular in high-end restaurants. What’s clearer than ever in the industry is that vegan and vegetarian restaurants aren’t a constraint, but rather an opportunity for creativity and flavour potential. There’s never been a better time to find delicious meals that don’t rely on meat – and they’re fancy enough to bring your partner for a date night.

“A steak is a steak — you generally know what you’re going to get,” says executive chef Jeremy Gillon. “But with vegetables, you can do so much more.”

One Michelin star JAG is a French fine-dining restaurant that takes an Omakase Discovery Degustation Menu approach, which means there is no set menu. Since its initial opening in 2018, the French omakase restaurant has offered vegetarian and vegan degustation menus, but it has only recently begun to emphasise those more heavily.

Diners are taken on a seasonality driven indulgent culinary journey with the Discovery Degustation lunch menu, which costs $175++. This is a journey of flavour progression through the medium of vegetables and foraged herbs from the mountains of Savoie, France. This approach enables the chef and his team to use the freshest produce available and pivot to create bespoke and one-of-a-kind dining experiences each time. This personalised experience will be tailored to your dietary preferences and preferences.

Chef Julien Royer, our list’s only three-star Michelin contender, offers a full plant-forward French-style tasting menu that, like his other menus, changes daily. Odette’s vegetarian degustation menu is just as sophisticated as its meat-based counterparts.

In 2020, Corner House featured a boldly original menu from  Chef David Thien. Born and raised in Bordeaux, David Thien has toured some of the most venerable Michelin-starred and gourmet cuisines in Europe and Asia.
