Delicious vegan burgers, sliders, waffles, and cakes at Hello Baby
Hidden along the quieter side of the Chinatown Street Market, Hello Baby is a new vegan fast food kiosk opened by HRVST Restaurant and Bar, the popular rooftop vegan eatery in the CBD with an edible garden of its own!
Quaint and surprisingly photogenic, the food kiosk serves a delightfully wide variety of food items despite its small size – think sliders, burgers, sandwiches, waffles, cakes, and ice cream!
All ingredients are prepared fresh daily at HRVST before being transported over, and when business is good – especially on Friday and Saturday nights – they close early once they’re all sold out!
Making vegan food fun
Trashing the misconception that vegan food is all tasteless grains and greens, Hello Baby’s grab-and-go bites are filled with interesting plant-based alternatives like jackfruit sliders, beetroot chips, and coconut-milk ice cream.
They even have a local-inspired Chilli “Crab” Mantou Sliders ($10), which are actually enoki mushrooms cooked with a vegan chilli crab sauce and stuffed into a baked mantou!
To beat the heat though, opt for their vegan Waffles and Ice Cream ($11), which was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. While the coconut-milk ice cream didn’t have the smooth creaminess of gelato, it was just as refreshing as fresh coconut juice – no complaints there!
Plus, keep your eyes peeled for their Beyond Meat patty burgers launching next week! Well-loved worldwide for being just as delicious and authentic-tasting as beef, the famous American plant-based patties are made from pea protein and beetroot, and each burger will go for $18.
We tried the tentatively-named “Nothing Can Go Wrong” Burger, and it was a classic with housemade vegan mayonnaise, rich and savoury cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce, and pickled zucchini and beetroot chips for that added crunch in every bite.
Make sure to give the Double Dutch tonic drinks ($4) a try too – they come in unique flavours like Cucumber & Watermelon and Pomegranate & Basil!
