Whole Earth’s mission is to elevate the standard of plant-based cooking and promote it to a wider audience beyond vegetarians and vegans in our little red dot. They have been able to do just that.
Using fresh ingredients, they come up with these flavourful creations:
Beef rendang is a popular favourite amongst locals but have you tried shiitake mushroom rendang? This dish is marinated in Peranakan herbs and spices and is a great vegetarian alternative to the well liked meat version. It’s juicy and bursting with flavour, definitely a top pick.
This iconic dish is aptly named ‘Sambal King’ for all the right reasons. The perfect balance of spicy, savoury, sweetness with a tinge of bitterness from the petai beans. This combination of lady’s finger, eggplant, long beans and petai beans is a harmony of great textures and flavours in every bite.
Rice, an absolute staple in asian cuisines. This olive rice is both fragrant and savoury, it’ll remind you of home-cooked goodness with every bite. Choose between the white rice or brown rice options, you can’t go wrong either way. If you’re looking for something with a bit of a spicy kick to it then consider ordering their ‘XO Rice’ instead.
