Singapore is a very vegetarian-friendly city with many options for cruelty-free dining. The real food chain is easily among the best. The dishes are creative and all abundant with flavour and fresh. The veggie dumplings are my favorite dumplings in the world. I have brought many meat-eaters here who love to come back. There are multiple locations but this location... More

We are vegetarians and struggle to get a decent meal at most restaurants even in this day and age. There are never really many options for vegetarians. So Real food was like a boon. They have so many options and we were a group of 6 and we tried 6 dishes. Boy was each good or what! Full of flavours... More

I didn't expect the food to taste that good as im used to having some meat in my meals but boy was I wrong! Their food tasted so good! The beetroot burger didnt have a strong earthy taste to it, but it was packed with flavour! Im glad that I found this hidden gem!

We were so lucky to stumble across this restaurant while trying to find a money changer! Such a great variety of yummy foods from salads, to Asian dishes and plenty of new ideas and things we hadn't tried before! Felt very safe with the gluten free choices and some of the best things on the menu were vegan. Yum. Great... More

Visited the Real Food Cafe for breakfast, and it was a lovely way to start the day. The gluten free waffles are just delicious! We also had the yummy mushroom omelette and freshly made juices. A fresh and healthy and tasty way to start the day. Huge servings and nice service, and a well designed cafe space. Highly recommended!

Holidaying as a vegan is very hard to do but Real Food made this super easy! We went everyday for 6 days straight and never got bored of the menu. The fried dumplings are superb, pasta is fresh and tasty and the noodles are very authentic. If I ever go back to Singapore, I will definitely be eating here daily!

The noodles dry with mushrooms, the wedges made with organic potatoes, and the tea for throat recommended by the staff who saw that I was having an itchy throat... I could never be more satisfied. I ended up buying a box of the tea that got my throat feel really much better even after a meal. Yes, the tea is... More

We loved Real Food! We stayed across the street and ate here a handful of times during our visit to Singapore. We had amazing gluten free/dairy free waffles, scrumptious soup, noodles, and pizza. Everything was delicious! It's a little tricky to find, but it's in the basement of the shopping center at this address. Highly recommend!

Excellent food, had the pesto pasta which is out of this world. Lentil soup full of ginger was terrific. Quinoa burger was fresh though a bit bland. Salad leaves fresh.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
