One of the purposes I went to Singapore is to visit my friend’s restaurant. He started the restaurant 6 months back. Before started, he was in Taiwan for “Hell” training for 1 month. Since then, I told him I definitely will pay him a visit when I was in Singapore. In fact, I visited the restaurant twice during my stay in Singapore. Oh, the restaurant is called Water Drop Teahouse. It is a vegetarian restaurant and located inside the Fo Guang Shan temple, in Punggol.

Just after you stepped out from the elevator (Oh, the restaurant is located at 3rd floor of Fo Guang Shan), you will see a beautiful decoration before you headed to the main entrance of the restaurant.

Main entrance.

Inside the restaurant.

If you don’t want to sit inside the restaurant and want to get some fresh air, you can choose to have a seat outside.

My friend was busy when I was there. It was Saturday and the restaurant was crowded with customers. However, he still come and serve me. I ordered 3 drinks: Chrysanthemum Tea, Lotus Tea and Honey Lemon.

Chrysanthemum Tea ($2). Not too sweet, I like it.

Lotus Tea ($2) that recommended by my friend. The fragrance was a little bit weird. This is the first time I taste on the Lotus Tea. Maybe that is why. Overall, it was quite unique and acceptable.

Honey Lemon ($2). It is a very normal drink, you can get it anywhere. Although it is very normal, I like it very much. The taste was just great. Highly recommended.

For the main course, I chose to have Vegetarian Noodle. My friend suggested on the Tom Yam Meehoon, the daily’s special food for the restaurant.

Vegetarian Noodle ($4). It comes with a lot of chopped mushroom. It is almost the same with the minced meat noodle, just that the mince meat is replace with the mushroom.

Tom Yam Meehoon. It’s not that spicy that I’m expecting. I think it is because Singaporean cannot eat too spicy. Not bad.

Besides these two main dish, I also ordered some snacks. From the 10 snacks on the menu, I ordered Crispy Ginger, Fried Tofu and Fried Spring Rolls.

Crispy Ginger ($2.50). For those who like ginger, this is a must order item. When you first bite on the ginger, you will not feel the spiciness of the ginger. But after few chew, you will start to taste the spiciness. I cannot finish all of them. I took away the left over.

Fried Tofu ($2.50). It is another must try item from the menu. The Japanese Tofu is being used for this dish. The tofu was slightly fried and served with some vegetarian spices on top.

The Fried Tofu was soft. The spices used was a bit salty, but it was just fine. If without the spices, the tofu will be tasteless.

Fried Spring Rolls ($2). It comes with 5 mini spring rolls.

The spring rolls were crispy. I forgot to ask my friend on the filling. It seems to have yam inside, besides the vegetables. I need to confirm with him. I like this very much.

Peanut Tofu. I am the first customer who tasted this dish. This is the very new snacks from Water Drop Teahouse. It will only appear in the menu by next year. I am so honored to have the chance to
taste this.

At first, when I see this snacks, I thought the brown sauce on top was made by the brown sugar. I was wrong. It was salty and not sweet. The taste was a little bit weird for me. I prefer it to be sweet rather than salty. I told my friend about my concern. He told me this is based on the Taiwanese snack, that is why it was salty and not sweet.

I was happy to have my lunch there. The dining experience was comfortable and great. The price was reasonably cheap! I was satisfied with all the food prepared by my friend. Since I not yet tasted all the food in the menu, I told my friend I will visit him for the second time before I go back to Penang. Please stay tune for my second visit post.

For those who are residing in Singapore or happen to go holidays in Singapore, if you want to have a good vegetarian food, don’t forget to pay a visit to Water Drop Teahouse. Do mention my name, maybe you can get a discount from my friend. ^.^
