Respond to Review of Ee Beng Vegetarian Food Center
Review: We came here with high hopes, as it is the top ranked restaurant on HC so we assumed it would be a treat. The exterior looks nice - different from the typical run down hole-in-the-wall veg place often found around Asia. Upon sitting down on one of the very small stools provided and checking out the menu though, it soon became apparent that it was going to be a struggle to get a good meal. Firstly, most of the dishes are only available on certain days of the week, so the choices are very limited. We were unfortunate in that neither of the 2 choices for that day were what we felt like eating. That meant we were left to choose from the everyday menu but upon enquiring which they could make without MSG, we were left with some green leaves and nothing much else. Even if you are willing to swallow a gutful of chemicals with your food, the nutritional value of the choices on offer were decidedly poor. So we left and went for some Indian, never to be back. Why this place is rated above Lily's we cannot fathom - there must be a lot of junk food vegetarians in this town.
