About an hour's drive from Melbourne is a place where Singaporean cuisine has found a new home: Oh My Greens in Melton South.
Visit Oh My Greens for Singaporean vegan dishes
Oh My Greens is a family owned and run eatery that started in Singapore back in 1998 with a mission to break down perceptions about vegan food being tasteless. Fast-forward to now, Oh My Greens has established its roots in Australia to bring this mission more to life.
Oh My Greens welcomes everyone to try their vegan Singaporean delicacies
This Singaporean establishment serves an all-encompassing vegan menu that delivers the diverse flavours Singaporean cuisine is known for. While it's tricky to choose what to eat, it's best to start with an iced coffee while you peruse the menu's pages. An espresso shot is poured over ice-cubes then topped with soy milk and crowned with a scattering of coffee beans.
Travel the Silky Road for starters
Start your Singaporean vegan food experience here with an entrée called The Silky Road; lightly seasoned silken tofu cubes dipped in a creamy peanut sauce. The kitchen is well-versed in gluten intolerances and uses an air-fryer to prepare this dish, so as to avoid gluten cross-contamination. There is a slightly longer wait time, but this delicate care will be appreciated by gluten-intolerant and coeliac diners. Plus, the dish is more flavoursome because of the air-frying technique employed. For mains, and to keep in theme with the restaurant's name, Seasonal Greens is a wise choice. A selection of seasonal greens lightly stir-fried and coated in a delicate sauce brings Singaporean food back to basics, again proving that vegan food is far from tasteless. A serve of steamed rice complements this dish well.
Required eating at Oh My Greens: a big serve of seasonal veggies

Any of the food choices taken here suit Melbourne's warmer days and warm diners in the more cooler months of the year, emphasising the versatility of Singaporean food in its vegan incarnation here at Oh My Greens. Diners will certainly drive home with a filled belly but you can grab a cupcake from the cake cabinet if you want something more to finish.
