Thai Goldmine Kitchen is located at 147 Kitchener Road, a five-minute walk away from Farrer Park MRT station. The former Zen Fut Sai Kai, said to be the oldest Chinese vegetarian restaurant in Singapore, used to lie along 147 Kitchener Road. In its place is Thai restaurant, Thai Goldmine Kitchen, which offers authentic dishes from the Land of Smiles, with a wide array of starters, salads, soups, curries, meat, fish, rice and vegetable dishes.
Along a row of shophouses on Kitchener Road lies Zen Fut Sai Kai, said to be the oldest Chinese vegetarian restaurant in Singapore. The restaurant is known to serve up a wide variety of Cantonese food such as Yong Chow fried rice, fried wantons and sugarcane flower soup.

England-born Otter lives in Singapore with his Singaporean wife and regularly goes to vegetarian eateries around the island to review them on his website in his free time.
