Zen Fut Sai Kai, said to be Singapore's oldest vegetarian restaurant, closes after 64 years

SINGAPORE - A vegetarian restaurant along Kitchener Road that first opened in 1953 has closed down after 64 years. Zen Fut Sai Kai, said to be Singapore's oldest vegetarian restaurant, was known for its traditional decor and Cantonese-style dishes. Vegetarian food blogger Luke Otter, 30, first broke the news of the restaurant's closure last Friday (Aug 25). "In my view, it was a cultural and historical landmark, a glimpse into the past," the British-born Mr Otter, who was in the news recently after starting his durian business, wrote in his Facebook post.
