It’s no secret that Singapore’s food culture is tasty AF. From Michelin-starred fine dining to its world famous Hawker stalls, the Lion City always has something exciting and delicious to look forward to. The same sentiment can be said for the plant-based world in Singapore.
While food tech companies like vegan burger patty Impossible Foods and revolutionary mung bean ‘egg’ JUST Scramble have launched their wildly popular products in neighboring Hong Kong earlier this year, the small island-state is hot on the tail of amazing vegan eats all over the city. With a diverse culinary scene that continues to evolve, Singapore has upped the ante with its own vegan ‘fried egg’ version. Crispy and decadent – as a fried egg should be – this new must-try has us looking for flights out to Changi stat!
For a limited time only, Singapore’s top vegan burger joint, VeganBurg, will debut its first ever plant-based sunny-side up egg on a burger. Mung beans, carrots and vegan soy cheese make up the yolk, while the ‘egg whites’ are made from bean curd skin. Completely plant-based and gluten-free with no added preservatives or artificial colors, it’s a perfect fried egg without the cruelty or cholesterol! Done sunny side up with VeganBurg’s popular vegan patties made in-house daily from seasoned breaded wheat protein, the Rasa Sayang burger – which translates in Malay to ‘Feel The Love’ – comes topped with fresh cucumber slices, a generous mound of homemade hot chili-based relish sambal sauce, sweet caramelized onions, creamy vegan aioli and crunchy greens on a fresh wholemeal bun. Sweet, spicy, and super sedap😉, you get all the flavor without the sacrifice – everybody wins.
Coinciding with Hari Raya Eid, an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan (the Islamic holy month of fasting), the Rasa Sayang Burg is the perfect pairing of honoring different culinary traditions. “Celebrating diversity is a big part of what we do at VeganBurg and the Rasa Sayang Burg is the perfect tribute to Singapore’s diverse multi-cultural food heritage,” says burger founder Alex Tan. “For many, we’re certain that the Rasa Sayang Burg will bring to their delight a familiar taste of Southeast Asia. We cannot wait to share this delectable experience with everyone.”
To celebrate the new season special, the burger joint (which also has a San Francisco outpost) will debut on May 15th and showcase a fusion of Singaporean and Malay treats for everyone to enjoy. Make it a meal with popular pink-hued rose syrup milk bandung (a vegan version, natch), coconut fries (yum), and Malaysian fave Chendol ice cream, flavored with vibrant green pandan jellies, tropical coconut and luscious coconut palm sugar. Available for two months only, be sure to taste all the love Rasa Sayang Burg has to offer.
