To Tibet by way of Chinatown

Si Chuan Noodle, Ci Yan Organic Vegetarian Health Food, Smith Street, Chinatown, Singapore

I MAY not have the patience of a Tibetan monk, perched high in the summit of Mt. Everest, contemplating the fate of this world.  But I sure could at least try Tibetan cuisine.  Or have really tasty – surprising, I know! – healthy organic vegetarian dishes in a setting that could awash even the stone-hearted with an overall sense of calm.

The first thing that strikes you about Ci Yan Organic Vegetarian Health Food is that the menu is quite short.  When we went there, there were only a couple of items on offer, beautifully handwritten on a blackboard by the entrance.  Between the Brown Rice Set Meal and the Si Chuan Noodle, I opted for the latter, and received a huge portion of firm handmade noodles in a rich sauce of beancurd and diced vegetables so flavorful that you would doubt for a second the veracity of the vegetarian claim.

I have The Malaysian to thank, yet again, for this discovery.  As the place is touted to not offer the exact same dishes every day, there is reason enough to pay it subsequent visits.

Curry Puff


Red Date Juice


The menu board says it short but sweet, a choice between two items.


What did I say about mirrors and me?! Haha! (This red striped Topman shirt has been shelved for over six months before I decided to try wearing it. And it has since become a favorite. Haha!)
