After enjoying so much exciting and innovative plant based cuisine during our stay it was always going to be hard for Straits Kitchen to live up to our expectations at the most vegan friendly, city centre luxury hotel we’ve ever stayed at. Combine that with the sheer amount of food we’d devoured at Grand Hyatt Singapore then perhaps a simple fruit salad and a coffee would suffice for breakfast…
But of course, we are professional vegans who never want to miss an opportunity to explore the vegan food that is on offer, and there was plenty available during breakfast at Straits Kitchen. We opted for a healthy, fresh and nutritious salad, followed by noodle soup which was packed with rice noodles, vegetables, tofu and a vegetable stock base, both provided a light and flavoursome start to our day.
The Western dishes including baked beans, sautéed potatoes, cherry tomatoes and fried mushrooms, all cooked in oil and not butter so perfect for vegans. Rice with mixed vegetables in vegetarian oyster sauce was another option, it was great to see that traditional oyster sauce had been replaced with a plant based, mushroom ‘oyster’ sauce. So often we stay somewhere and dishes that are labelled as vegetarian with only vegetables and tofu have oyster sauce which can be so frustrating. There was also plain congee with a whole bunch of condiments, fruit, oatmeal, soya milk and a large selection of Indian curries, many of which were plant based and suitable for vegans.
It was the perfect, plant based finale to our stay at Grand Hyatt Singapore.
