Disappointing Food and Service - Edit

Food was disappointing. Mala was properly cooked and did not taste like Mala. Satay was not throughly cooked, inside was frozen. Satay sauce was ice cold and ice crystals could be seen. Highlighted to staff and was told this was how it should be. Staff turned cold after highlighting the sub par standard of the food

Just OK - Edit

I had the Yam Ring. 16SGD. It was fine.
Prices are not too cheap.
Owner speaks some English and she use it for up sales...
They have another store at Fortune Centre with the same exact menu. It is also listed here.

No vegan food - Edit

The listing claims that this restaurant is vegan-friendly, however I went there today and they didn’t know what vegan means. They made no effort to understand what it means and I ended up having to go elsewhere. Terrible experience and terrible service.

Overpriced and mediocre food - Edit

The service wasn't friendly at all. Food very mediocre. I think I had maybe 2 mini-slices of tofu in my dish and the rest was fill-up rice and a bit of veggies. If I had made it myself it would have been better. On top of that, very expensive for the simple food you get.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Overpriced, Mediocre food, Unfriendly staff

Modernized and still good - Edit

Xing Hua used to be a simple pick and choose place. It has modernized it's interior for some time now, but I have just been back. Still great food. Mostly processed tofu or soy meat dishes, Chinese style. They still offer Mee Rebus if you ask for it but prices have gone up. The 'fancy' dishes like Satay are more expensive. Still very good though. They have been in business for 20 years!

Pros: Lots of Chinese-style dishes

Great discovery - Edit

I came across this place after buying the microphone I used to do my interviews in Southeast Asia. And so I noticed it wasn't on Happy Cow, and wrote the original entry.

It's a chinese restaurant serving mainly mock meats out of large buffet-style trays (although the prices are a la carte). It was really tasty, and I appreciated the meal.

I didn't find they had a wide range of English.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Not much in the way of actual vegetables, Greasy spoon ambience

Great menu range - Edit

Ate here several times on my recent Singapore trip. They have a huge menu and many daily hot plates of tasty foods. They use a lot of veggie proteins and the food is mainly Chinese, with Singaporean and Indonesian influence; I didn't try the small range of Euro dishes.

It was very cheap and much better quality than several other places I tried in Singapore. Excellent place.

Pros: Cheap, Great range, Good quality

Cons: No interesting desserts

Alfresco Dining @ Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant - Edit

Few weeks back, I was passing by Bugis and dropped by to Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant for a quick bite.

This eatery has been in this location for many years, I guess. Even though I knew about it, I have never dined in this outlet before. Some time back, a colleague recommended this place and talked so much about their hotpot, so I decided to give it a try.

The variety of dishes is good and I like the alfresco dining area with the resort style tables and chairs. As usual, it always takes me a long time to decide what I would want to eat. I have tried their mee rebus, laksa in other outlets, I am not too sure whether it will turn out to be the same and having to pay a higher price for it, so I pick the something else - Claypot Rice @ S$6 instead.

The claypot rice turned out to be flavourful and well presented with colourful ingredients that make the dish appeared appetizing but there was too much moist in the rice, a little soggy. I like all the ingredients such as yam, cabbage, mushroom etc.

I might be coming back for the hotpot.

Great small restaurant - Edit

Don't really feel a need to write a review, the previous reviewers have said all that needs saying, but I thought a more recent review would confirm. Small and busy restaurant in a busy area of Sing city. A good range of tasty vegetarian fare. Not expensive, ~$10us for a full meal with a drink. One reviewer said there was little English, I found a good knowledge of the English as she is spoken. Recommended. I usually swing by at least once when I am in Sing town.

Pros: tasty, price, range

Cons: busy area, no sitting and relax., Feels cramped space wise.

Nice - Edit

I feel like I was in Jakarta when I ate there. Serving mainly yes Chinese food and it's really cheap! Not very yummy but I think it's because I like spicy food.

Pros: Not expensive

superb dishes - very tasty - Edit

the pre-cooked dishes here are very tasty. considering that they came from a place in China and managed to adapt to Singapore's style of food, it's amazing. They even have mee goreng, and laksa etc..

They have a wide range of dishes, and unlike some other stalls, the dishes also seem new and different, in a sense that you don't see the same thing everyday. Their 菜饼(something like veg crackers, but soft and the 'skin'/outer layer is like pancake, but no egg!) are absolutely delicious. It's highly recommended. They have different choices of the 菜饼, there's pumkpin crackers, crystal ball, spring rolls etc, all very yummy (i'm not too sure but they might cost a little more).

They sell 老鼠饭 too (a type of noodle that looks like a mouse's tail, hence the name 老鼠饭), in addition to bee hoon, fried rice, kuey tiao, etc. The staff are also very friendly, and the atmosphere is very cheery and bright.

There's another location (but smaller, since this Bugis one is the main branch) at Tampines, address is Blk 201D #01-1171 Tampines Street 21. Telephone no: 96387524.

This location also have some very nice drinks, like water chestnut, lime juice, and fruit juice (not found in the Tampines location). and also have longan drinks, coconut and aloe vera drinks etc.

& the prices are very cheap. about 2 dishes + noodles/rice costs around $2-3 only. the a la carte ones are around $3 +, unless you order their Xing Hua speciality that ranges from $8 to $10.

one should really try out this shop. super delicious, the food and everything. 5 stars to Xing Hua Vegetarian Restaurant

Pros: delicious food, good value (cheap prices), friendly staff and atmosphere

i am not too sure about this location, but the one at Tampines has a wide range of veggies, apart from mock meat(though the mock meat is also delicious like their deep fry fish :) and other nuggets). lots of nice veggies like french bean, eggplant, curry, potato, etc. mostly like local style
