pleasant surprise for a meat lover !

Decided to try out this restaurant sometime ago, even though I am more of a "predator" (meat lover).
 
 I tried the Mushroom Sea Cucumber Abalone with Oyster Sauce, Vegetarian Pork with Winter Melon, Deep Fried Prawns w/ Oats and the Yam Ring with Vegetable.

Must say, that the experience blew me away. Never expected vegetarian dishes can taste so good. The chef has actually been able to deliver a range of delactable dishes without using meat. 

Would recomend this to anyone who wants a different dining experience (unless ofcourse you are already used to vegetarian cuisine) ! This indeed changed my perception of vegetarian cuisine.

Dinner @ Lao di fang with Wifey and granny

Wifey decided to bring her granny out for dinner and what better place then granny's all time favourite Lao di fang which use to have many outlets around the island...

Visited the place on 20-Nov-11. Ordered the following dishes

1) Spare ribs: $8.80

- Mock spare ribs which taste like dry beancurd skin curled up with sweet and sour sauce. Taste crunchy and appetizing with a slight sour taste, goes very well with the brown rice.

2)Oyster sauce w Veg: $8.80

- First taste of the mushroom on top of the veg, one word..."fresh"..you can literally taste the mushroom as though it is freshly picked from the farm....

3) Deep fried Matsutake mushroom: $10.80

- Deep fried mushroom with cereal and some dried chilli, taste very much like cereal prawn but too many of it will make one feel greasy.....

4) Fried Beancurd from dim sum section: $3.80

- This is Wifey's favourite dish when she last visited LDF while it has an outlet in causeway point. A simple dish, fried toufu with very crispy outer layer and juicy fillings. There is a hole in the middle of the toufu which is filled with a black sauce..."i thought it taste like black pepper sauce but wifey says there is also brown bean paste sauce in it as well"...Well. not sure who is right but it taste quite nice

Total bill with the Rice, Towel and Tea +++ GST is $48 for 3 pax.

Can see this becoming a regular Meatless Monday haunt!

Had lunch here yesterday with a couple of friends. The food was good overall, though i can only comment on what i ate because the food had already been ordered when i arrived.

We had the Tomato and Veg Chicken with came in a claypot - mock chicken with a tomato-ey gravy that went well with the Ham Fried Rice (very large portion, not too oily). The stir-fried asparagus and mushroom was good, cooked with a subtly-flavoured stock that wasn't too starchy.

Our fave dish was the sweet & sour monkey head mushroom, which had great texture and flavour.

I had the honeydew sago for dessert which i liked as it was too sweet or thick, but my friend didn't like her yam paste as she found it to be too thick and gummy.

The service was pretty good and the ambience great for a quiet lunch.

My favourite Vegetarian Restaurant!

Everytime i visit this restaurant, i never fail to get sick of eating the same dishes.

I totally fell in love with the carrot cake when i first tried it. It's soft texture with the outer crispy surface accompanied by the sweet sauce. PERFECT!

Vietnam duck meat! It's really a wonder how they make the mock duck meat to blend with the sauce. The stir fried bean was just nice, it's crisp and just keeps me going!

Like what my friend said, after trying the warm yam bubble tea, she will never go back to drinking yam tea from other bubble tea shops. It's just different. While talking to the staff, they actually uses yam powder instead of syrup which was a much healthier choice!

I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant! I love this awesome place!

NICE vegetarian

I work at Park Mall. So I'll visit this vegetarian restaurant quite often. This place usually serve chinese (taiwanese) style vegetarian cusine. The ambience is cosy. Food is good, service is good too. only it cost slightly high for me. Overall its good, i will return during special occasions. 

During lunch, they have special ofter for take-away, i usually try their fried rice, its FANTASTIC. Its not too oily, its fill with some leaves (herbs i think) which make it taste great..... MUST TRY...
