Dishes are healthy too, and the atmosphere is fittingly tranquil in keeping with the spa next door.

The chefs from Cassia are also extremely accommodating with requests and are willing to adapt dishes to suit vegetarian and even vegan tastes.!
It may be a bit of a trek to this beachfront restaurant at the Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa resort, but the ocean views and the fabulous food make it all worth it.

There are several reasons to be at this beach-side chill spot. The laid-back vibe and excellent drinks aside, FOC’s food menu is packed with delicious Mediterranean and Spanish eats, several of which are vegetarian.
Hot and cold tapas like the sizzling padron peppers, the refreshing burrata & seasonal tomatoes salad, and zucchini carpaccio make great starters, but do save room for the main event; a hearty vegetarian paella that can feed up to four hungry diners. There is even a live barbeque, churning out grilled organic veggies like the roasted pumpkin in five spices.
