This is a world class vegetarian treasure trove. Its amongst Singapore's top award winning restaurants and deserves its reputation. Even non veggies will be bowled over by the tastes and quality. Not to be missed--especially the Red Riding Hood and also Cheeky Monkey, two dishes that really hit the spot. Go there!

Naive serves unique and tasty vegetarian cuisines. I especially like the monkey cheek mushrooms. A must-try for vegetarian cuisine lovers.

We have visited Naive on four occasions now and each time they prove they are great at making vegetarian food. On this latest trip, it was Chinese New Year weekend and they added some special dishes to their menu. In particular, they had a Peking Duck dish that was the closest thing to real duck I have yet tasted. It had a texture of both duck skin and duck meat all within each tasty morsel. They also had a pomelo salad which was a great way to start our meal.

We love the Chunky Monkey (monkey head mushrooms with Oats and Basil) that is one of their signature dishes. My kids ask for this each time and it never fails to disappoint. Our new favorite is the Red Riding Hood (sweet and sour boneless spareribs with pineapple). It has the right mix of tangy and sweet flavors.

Overall, the meals are typical Singapore price range of around 25 per person but we are happy to pay it for some of the best vegetarian food around.

Have driven past this interesting looking restaurant a few times and always intrigued by the minimilist decor and look so when we had a veggie friend staying recently we decided to go along to try. Really interesting menu and very cool vibe but the service was soooo slow. The place wasn't super busy but our waitress took ages to bring drinks and menus. But the food was great so it's a must try if you want a meat free dinner in a cool, trendy atmosphere.

Read about Makansutra K F Seetoh mentioning about Naïve’s Cheeky Monkey in The New Paper (Jan 2010, I think) and I realized I have no encounter with this Cheeky Monkey at all!

So, I went to Naïve again. To check out the suspicious Cheeky Monkey? You may wonder what is this all about? Who is or What is Cheeky Monkey at Naive?

It is just the name of the item on Naïve’s Fun Menu that usually would evoke few laughs. Cheeky Monkey ($12.90+) is fried chunks of monkey head mushroom tossed in crispy cereal with curry leaves and chilli. The crispy cereal bit together with the crispy curry leaves is simply delicious! Love the Fried Monkey Head Mushroom in it, very tasty and has a nice bite.

Using Monkey Head Monkey is another good alternative for the popular dish - Cereal Prawn.

For those who are allergic to seafood like prawn .Worry Not! Just enjoy this dish whipped up using Monkey Head Mushroom. Not a mushroom lover! Hmm…, then go for Cereal Tofu at Whole Earth.

One thing to take note: if you are ordering this for kids who do not take spicy food well, it is better to request the Chef to omit the chilli bits else you will have fun time doing treasure hunt (for chilli) or you will face a kid on fire(screaming).
