Exquisite Savoury Vegetarian Dim Sum Hi-Tea Buffet @ LingZhi

Food/Drink 5 | Value 5 | Ambience 4 | Service 4

I love the cosy hip decor and the sumptuous vegetarian food which uses only natural ingredients in this restaurant - especially their exquisite savoury Vegetarian Dim Sum and Hotpot @ Lingzhi @ Novena Square.

Making Dim Sum is real time consuming and required lots of work and skill. Not to mention the long list of ingredients required. Therefore, the smartest thing is to enjoy it at the restaurant. Go for the Hi Tea Buffet which is only S$10.20++ on weekday (which consist of 26 items) and S$15.00++ on weekend (consist of 32 items).

Last December, I have a meet-up with my boy's classmate and his mother at LingZhi. We were having Hi Tea Buffet, as a non-vegetarian, she was amazed that the vegetarian dim sum can be so delicious and just love it. It was value for money, it is better than going to a Coffee Chain for a cup of coffee and cake.

Many of my non-vegetarian friends, they are not aware that there is such scrumptious vegetarian Dim Sum at such a good price in such a hip restaurant. In fact they would not reject any vegetarian food as long as it is delectable. To them, it is just another meal and they can have meat at other time, it is not an issue to them at all.

What I like:

The causal hip decor in the restaurant. The awesome food, dim sum, hotpot. Prices is reasonable, like any casual dinning non-veg restaurants in the market.

Nice at first bite but can be overwhelming if eat too much

LingZhi Vegetarian Restaurant is the vegetarian arm under Tung Lok Group, serving gourmet non-meat fine dining cuisine. There are two outlets currently, one at Liat Towers and the other at Velocity at Novena Square - we chose the latter for lunch. I have been wanting to try a fine dining vegetarian meal for a long time, so I was glad to finally be able to get *Zachary to go with me.

One could choose to either take the buffet lunch or order a la carte - we chose the latter as well.

The first selected dish was the Golden Delight Soup (SGD$15.00) - basically shark's fin melon with lily bulbs, bird's nest and golden mushrooms in a clear broth. It was surprisingly tasty even without the presence of meat, having been infused with the stronger flavor of the mushrooms. The lily bulb added crunch to the soup, and the shark's fin melon looked exactly like shark's fin in its shredded form.

Curiosity piqued us to try the Vegetarian Satay (SGD$16.00) - 4 thick skewers of chestnut, mushrooms, green pepper and what seemed like fried flour or dried beancurd (taupok), all drenched in the dense coating of satay peanut sauce. It was a little spicy, but very delicious. The usuage of the fried flour / taupok as well as chestnuts gave the skewers a good bite as well.

Next, the Deep Fried Lotus Root Rolls (SGD$18.00) which had actually been named as "seafood rolls" or something on the a la carte menu, and that was the only reason I had ordered it (to try mock seafood). Turned out that it was all deep fried lotus rolls with a crispy exterior and sticky interior, stuffed with some vegetables. The taste was rather bland, and this dish was very filling.

Unimpressive food and services

Made a reservation more than 2 weeks in advance and was shocked that our reservation wasn't recorded in at all. Server at the entrance was rude and loud when sorting out the issues with us. At first offered us a table with a time limit of 1hour time limit and we rejected as we made a reservation in the first place and the timing was too short for a dinner for 7 pax. Next he located us to another table and commented sarcastically that we have no time limit and we are able to dine in as LONG as we want. Argh! 
The variety of food was little and the servings of the dishes were inconsistent too. My family only enjoyed the fried rice and we dislike the satay. Other than that we left unimpressed and disappointed given that Ling Zhi is under Tung Lok company. There are many better and economical vegetarian restaurant out there so we won't be returning to Ling Zhi anymore.
