~ No Longer in Operation ~

Having a vegetarian restaurant that opens till 9pm is hard to find, but one opens up to 10.30pm, honestly this is a good news to many vegetarians. Some more, all dishes are made to order, and it’s not like any other just like economy rice style where you get a plate and dish out the food that you want. It’s just like any other ordinary restaurant, but this is vegetarian that’s all.

Discovered this restaurant not long ago, and honestly the food is absolutely delicious and the price is reasonable. Though compared to ordinary restaurant, vegetarian restaurant do not have much choices, or variety, but with the current situation where many folks out there are shouting for saving the earth and all that… this is not a bad place to consider.

What makes us falling in love to this place is this special dish, its normal and nothing special, but what attracts my attention is they remove the head and the tail of a bean sprout. Thus, I concluded that the owner is definitely taking hygiene into factor. This was our very first dish recommended by the owner and the owner’s wife too. Especially the tau-keh-soh, she will recommend add some chili padi to this. And am talking so much, so what dish is this then? Well, that’s Bean Sprout with Salted Fish (銀芽鹹魚, RM7-00).

How would be a Pai Kut Ong (排骨王) taste like for a vegetarian dish? Then let me tell you, it makes no different at all. It tastes exactly like a Pai-Kut Ong. Seriously, how could you not impress, right? A small dish like this is only RM8-00, it’s definitely reasonable for 2 to 3 persons.

Marmite Honey Hericium (Marmite 猴頭菇, hóutóugū, RM8-00) is their signature dish. Marmite is something that you either hate it or love it. However the way the make this is definitely no regrets.

Another signature dish, which you shouldn’t miss is Huizhou Preserved Vegetable & Pork (惠州梅菜扣肉, RM7-00) . Preserved vegetables is either too salty in other places or too blend, but for this, it has its combination of the vegetarian meat. In fact good to eat with their special made Sambal Chili.

Not to forget their Sambal Chili also the best! You shouldn’t miss it as well. I’ve tried many places, their Sambal Chili is something that you wouldn’t want to miss, though it doesn’t has the sambal belachan taste, but, it’s blended with ginger and chilies that make the chilies so awesome!

Apart from the dishes that mentioned above, they also have fried noodles like Hokkien Char, and Fried Rice. My personal favourite is their Hokkien Char.

Yong Chow Fried Rice is also nice to have. Normally fried rice is oily, but bet you, you can have this place of fried rice not to have extra oil on your plate.

If you find Hokkien Char and Yong Chow Fried Rice is not enough for you. What we did was, we added Deep Fried Kangkung aka Water Spinach (泰國炸蕹菜, RM6-00). It’s crispy and mostly children will love it.

Interesting to see deep fried kangkung in their menu, since this would usually be in Thai cuisine. Very reasonable pricing, and the Pai Kuat Wong looks exactly like the real deal.

Hi J2Kfm, oh yes, no doubt about the Pai Kuat Wong. In fact, it tastes so real. :)

Doesn't look like vegetarian food at all. Nice to know about this restaurant.
I just cooked a vegetarian meal for our lunch today. My vegetarian means meatless, but no restriction to onion, garlic, milk and egg. :)
