Dine Zi Char style at D'life because even plants deserve to be part of a feast!
Let us explore D’life, a hotspot for amazing vegetarian food. This article will take you through two of their branches: their peaceful outlet at Jurong West and their buzzing haven at Chinatown Point.
D'Life @ Jurong West
Nestled beneath the towering HDB blocks, D’life Jurong West beckons with its unassuming charm, marked by a simple wooden signboard and a lively, green façade that lures passersby to explore its culinary treasures.
Inspired by its quiet allure, food enthusiasts like @Kevin S ventured inside and were greeted with a speedy procession of delectable dishes. A hot plate brinjal, meticulously wrapped in glistening aluminum foil, emerged alongside a herbal mushroom soup that warmed the soul, and tofu stir-fried to perfection. The verdict? These dishes were not just good; they were genuinely flavourful and expertly prepared. As Kevin attests, "The brinjal didn't turn into mush, and the tofu maintained that delightful spring in its step."
And when it came to quenching their thirst, homemade barley drink earned a compliment from @Kevin S, and extended a hearty invitation to all to sample its exquisite goodness.
But let's not forget the ambience! Dining experiences are best savoured in the right setting, and as @Kevin S added, "I went on a Wednesday night, and the place was still relatively crowded… Nevertheless, we reached at about 7 pm and could still comfortably get seats for 4 of us." The icing on the cake? Dining at D'life won't break the bank, with prices hovering just above $10 but comfortably below $20 for a satisfying meal.
Now, speaking of converts, @pogstal, a self-professed non-vegetarian enthusiast, found herself irresistibly drawn to D'Life's delectable offerings. After indulging in the Sweet and Sour Hericium with rice, she couldn't contain her excitement, exclaiming, "ITS DAMN GOOD like legit no cap." Her resounding recommendation? "Bring more friends along, then y'all can share-share the food ZICHAR STYLE 😍." According to the knowledgeable staff, must-try dishes for solo diners include the Nasi Lemak, Hericium Delights, and Bak Kut Teh.
Meanwhile, @Zhang Yong offered a glimpse into the restaurant's welcoming ambience, characterizing it as clean, spacious, and endowed with an earthy charm. Here's a delightful bonus: you can snag vegetarian biscuits, snacks, and instant noodles at the cashier, rounding out your D'life experience on a delicious note.
D'Life Signature @ Chinatown Point
However, not every D’life branch is cut from the same cloth. When it comes to D'life Signature at Chinatown Point, according to @Foodadvisor, this is where dim sum dreams come true. "The restaurant is well-known for its delicious dim sum, freshly made and served with a variety of sauces. They also offer an array of other Chinese dishes, including noodles, rice, and stir-fries."
But does it live up to the hype? @iamruien embarked on a daring dim sum expedition at D'life Signature, and her journey was a rollercoaster of sensations. "Went to D’life Signature today and tried some dim sum 👍. Xiaolongbao without soup but still somewhat moist? A bit weird.” The walnut bun, though, was a pleasant surprise, concealing a delightful custard filling. Although her friend had mixed feelings about the custard, variety is the spice of life, right?
And then there's @malguguyumyum, who serendipitously stumbled upon a golden opportunity – a buy-3-get-1-free dim sum deal. While snapping a quick photo might have slipped his mind, the taste of the pumpkin cake was imprinted on his memory. "Tastes just like it looks. Fried, oily, but similarly to fried chicken, its good lah." Oh, and here's a fun twist for some– the free dim sum is a delightful surprise since you can't choose; it's a true "yolo" moment!
D'life restaurants stand as a testament to culinary creativity and an unwavering commitment to the art of vegetarian cuisine. They extend an irresistible invitation to explore a realm of flavours that bridges tradition and innovation. From their signature dim sum that tantalizes the senses to the quirkiest veggie twists that spark delight, D'life promises a culinary adventure that will linger long in your memory.
