🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: Cedele was one of my fave places when I used to live in Singapore a decade ago (and was vegetarian). I'm glad that they have a few options clearly marked as "vegan friendly" on their menu. 🌱 I had two meals here. . • Portobello and Tri-colour Quinoa with grilled pumpkin, tofu, vine tomatoes and miso-ginger sauce - This was delicious 🤤 but wasn't enough for me so I also ordered their Curry Pumpkin soup - something I always loved. 😋 • The second time I visited I got their Mixed Mushroom Garlic Tossed Rice - Organic Jasberry rice (which I did not know was a purple rice), cauliflower-quinoa-chia patties, veg furikake, edamame, cherry tomatoes, chilli padi, coriander. This dish I didn't like as much as my previous meal but of course I finished it. I found it a bit bland and I wasn't a fan of this rice breed either. 🍚 I also got a side of Truffle Sweet Potato Fries 🍟 - delicious but a huuuuge portion so I took the rest home to eat later. 😋 . If you decide to visit, do check the menu for that specific location as they're different based on whether it's a Bakery Kitchen, Bakery Cafe or All-day Dining place. ✅ . 📍@cedelesingapore, Wheelock Place, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: Back at Kind Kones 😍 for their Brownie Sundae (gluten-free brownie and a scoop of ice cream.) 🍨 Their flourless sweet potato brownie was rich, dense, fudgy and moist - amazing texture. I could not taste the sweet potato at all thanks to all the yummy cacao in it and the delish ice cream.🤩🤤 I love that all the ingredients are clearly listed on every item in this store. 🌱 The brownie had sweet potato, cacao powder, almonds, walnuts, coconut milk and dairy-free chocolate. I got the Mocha Almond ice cream to go with it and added toasted almond and fudge sauce as toppings. Yum! 😋 . This place is a must to if you're in Singapore! 💯😋✅ . 📍@kindkones_sg, Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: An underwhelming meal at Patara Fine Thai Cuisine, a place that looked promising but wasn't worth it. . We got: 1. Khong Nung Jay - Steamed dumplings with chives and mushroom filling - Very thick wrapper and bland filling. 🥟 After the dumplings at Din Tai Fung, these were disappointing. Skip this. ✖️ 2. Satay Hed & Tofu - Tofu and mushroom satay with aromatic peanut sauce and cucumber salsa - This was delicious. Especially the tofu - super soft, chunky and melt in the mouth. ✔️🍢🍄 3. Soup Phak - Clear broth with mixed vegetables - A regular clear soup 🥣 4. Gang Kiew Wan Hed - Green curry with mushrooms, tofu and assorted vegetables - This was fine. The tofu again was excellent. 🍛 5. Khao Ob Maprao - Roasted coconut rice with smoked coconut water - It sounded amazing but didn't really have the coconut flavour. 🥥 Also I was expecting white rice so 🙁 6. Mango Sticky Rice 🥭 - Thai fragrant mango with sweet coconut rice - Surprisingly bad! 😮The rice which was just like a tough blob. 🍚 I've had great mango sticky rice even at the tiniest stalls in Thailand so it was surprising that a fine dining place like this one would get it wrong. 🤷🏻♀️ . The service too was off...the staff seemed uninterested and unenthusiastic (in an almost empty restaurant). So overall, I would not recommend this place! . 📍@patara_sg, Tanglin Mall, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: One of my fave new spots in this city...A fully vegan ice cream and dessert shop! 🙀😻 Kind Kones is a place I could visit every single day. Amazing vegan ice cream made with clean ingredients, no chemicals, no refined sugar, no artificial flavours/colour and of course no dairy or eggs. 🥥🌱 And they also have the most amazing #glutenfree waffle cone made from almond flour. It felt crisp and fresh with a slightly nutty taste but I don't see why anyone would mind it! My usually fussy niece gobbled it up in no time. . In this photo: Tiramisu and Strawberry 🍓 in their gluten-free cone.🍦 . What I especially loved about their ice cream is that you don't feel heavy and stuffed after eating it! Their flavours also keep rotating so you'll always have new options. Most are made with coconut milk combined with either almond/cashew/oat milk. They also had some sorbets. . Even if you have just a day in this city, this place is a must-do! Be kind to your body, to animals and the planet! 🐄🌏 #nonveganapproved 💯😋✅ . 📍@kindkones_sg, Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇸🇬 Singapore Diaries 🇸🇬: Dinner in Singa soon after arriving...trying out the Verde menu at Pizza Express! 🍕🌱 1. Vegan Margherita - my niece's pizza. I didn't try it but she said it was good. 2. Vegan Giardiniera - Asparagus, butternut squash, mushrooms, roasted peppers, cherry tomatoes, olives, passata, vegan cheese and garlic oil. - Good but would've liked a more generous helping of @daiyafoods cheese and veggies. 🧀 3. Impossible Curry - Impossible™ (meat) with vegan mozzarella, passata, red onion, red chilli, garlic oil and kale. - This one was so unique and flavourful thanks to the curry flavour. Was my first time trying out @impossible_foods. As I'd always been vegetarian before going vegan, I wasn't sure if I'd like this but as it was all ground up, I was okay. 😊 4. Vegan Apple Tart - Apples, cinnamon and roasted almond in a shortcrust pastry crust. Served with a mango sauce. While this wasn't a tart that satisfied dessert cravings, it felt healthy with the amount of apple 🍎 and I liked that it wasn't overly sweet. The mango sauce was a weird pairing for me. . I have to say while these pizzas were good they weren't as good as those at their London outlets. 🇬🇧 Just a more generous helping of vegan cheese could change that! 😋 . I'm back in India now but had a very eventful week in Singapore with my niece getting very sick soon after we got there but thankfully, she's okay now. 🧿 We weren't able to do much for most of the week but I did get out for meals so a lot of yummy pictures and Stories coming up soon. 😋✅ . 📍@pizzaexpresssg, Scotts Square, Singapore 🇸🇬 . . .
🇵🇹 Lisbon Diaries 🇵🇹: Vegan sorbet🌹 🍨 at Amorino - I got their Litchi and Organic Chocolate.🍫 Litchi was a new flavour so had to try that. (I've tried all their other vegan options (swipe for menu) last year in Spain. 😬) I loved that their cone was vegan! 🍦Yummy + helps save the environment, one less laminated cup at a time. 🌎😊 . And that brings me to the end of my Lisbon diaries (from April)! On to the next destination tomorrow! 😁 . @amorinogelato, Vasco da Gama, Lisbon, Portugal 🇵🇹 . . .
When Google Assistant takes you back to a time full of amazing memories... Christmas in Peru 🇵🇪 in 2014. 📅 This was the first country of my three-month solo trip across South America. ✈️🌎 Four years later, it still feels surreal... At times I can't believe I did this but it was surely the best decision I've ever made! 😇 I still remember the mixed feelings and slight panic I felt the night that I was leaving home but a few days into the trip, I felt so calm and settled...wherever I was felt like home! 🏡 It's not very common for Indian women (especially Gujarati women) to travel solo so I'm even more grateful for this life-changing experience! 🌟 . This🎄tree made from plastic bottles was in Aguas Calientes, the sleepy town from where you can visit the fascinating citadel of Machu Picchu. . . . #grateful #throwback #peru #machupicchu #indiantraveller #visitperu #exploreperu #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #doyoutravel #gujju #ladiesgoneglobal #iamatraveler #gujarati #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #instatravel #travelphotography #igtravel #traveladdict #forbestravelguide #saynotoplastic #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmastime #christmaseve
