Do you know the difference between vegan and vegetarian diet? Some of my ex-students used to think that both terms are interchangeable, while others thought that the former would refer the person, while the latter would be used to describe a lifestyle or a dish without meat. nomVnom is a vegan - not vegetarian - fast-food eatery within a stone's throw away from Telok Ayer MRT station.
The vegan diet is stricter than its vegetarian counterpart, for the former excludes all animal products, including eggs and milk. Also, advocates of veganism avoid inedible products from animals, such as leather, silk and wool.
Dhal Fusion Burger S$7.30
I tried the Indian-infused burger comprising crunchy soya patty brushed with lentil curry sauce, topped with sweet corn kernels. The patty was pretty substantial, while the curry was piquant alright.
Kimchi Croquette Burger S$7.60
My BFF ordered the Korean-infused burger consisting of potato croquette, lettuce, kimchi (Korean dish made of fermented cabbages) and sesame mayonnaise. I felt that the croquette could be crunchier on the outside, while the kimchi could be slightly sweeter and less sour.
French Fries S$3.50
The thick shoestring fries were fried and subsequently seasoned well with salt. None of which was soggy.
Vegan Banana Cake S$3.50
I truly enjoyed the banana cake, which was moist and exuded a heady fragrance of ripe bananas. The texture was dense, yet pretty soft. My moderately sweet slice of cake had three raisins at the top.
Pika's advice: Ordering one burger and two sides is considered as Combo A with a S$2.00 discount from the total price. Ordering one burger, one side and one drink is considered as Combo B with a S$2.00 discount from the total price as well.
