This was an invited food tasting session courtesy of the Singapore Health Promotion Board.
Here’s Destination No. 5:
Ananda Bhavan Vegetarian Restaurant (Near Mustafa)
The final destination for the day’s outing was to Ananda Bhavan Vegetarian Restaurant in Little India. If you are wondering where it is, it’s just beside Mustafa.
I did not know that fried bee hoon has so many calories!
For a meal with less than 600 calories, you get a portion of this brown rice bee hoon with mixed veggies and a side dish.
If you do not like bee hoon, try the wholemeal chapatti.
Two very big pieces of chapatti and two side dishes.
The tasting portion here was for us to try it out.
I particularly liked the cauliflower curry. It was very appetizing and it goes well with the chapatti. The palak paneer, I like it without the paneer (cottage cheese). I like palak (spinach) only. Ya, my taste buds is a bit different.
For the brown rice bee hoon, it was very peppery. If you like peppery food, you will like it, if not you will be wanting to drink lots of water to cool down your tongue.
