Vegan Venues of Singapore

A plant-based restaurant reference…

The world needs more lists like this, because, well, you do a search for vegan restaurants and the results come up with vegetarian restaurants and ordinary restaurants that have maybe one plant-based item on the menu, like a green salad or a glass of water. Hmph.
