Respond to Review of CLOSED: Happy Realm Vegetarian
by Peace ...

Review: Located inside the Pearl's Centre, this eatery has been around for many years. When I turned vegetarian in 1993, this eatery was one of those few vegetarian restaurants that we could go to. Nowadays, been a vegetarian is such a blessing as there are so many vegetarian eateries mushrooming everywhere and even non-vegetarian eateries are vegetarian friendly. Nothing much has changed in this eatery, it still maintains the 80s Chinese Restaurant Vibe. The menu looks the same, serving Traditional Chinese Vegetarian Cuisine, with maybe a dollar or two increases for some of the dishes. No Service Charge and No GST. I already had some free snack at Ginger Cafe at Blood Bank after donating blood (iron is not an issue in vegetarian diet, we vegetarian can donate blood too). And dinning alone, I can't order much except for those noodle or rice dishes like Hor Fun, Fried Noodle, Fried Rice etc. As I wanted more vegetables, therefore I ordered Curry Vegetable@ $4 (deep-fried tofu, potatoes, cabbage and bean curd skin) and a small bowl of steamed rice @ $0.50. On the whole, the curry looks quite plain and without much color or vegetable variety and tastes just like any normal curry but a little thicker. But the portion is good and price is reasonable and the plus point is that there is no mock meat, the ingredients like potatoes, tofu, cabbage are of high nutrients. For those who are health conscious, we can simply do not consume slurp too much of the curry sauce which used coconut milk. There were quite a sizable crowd on a weekday lunch time after 1pm when I was there. And they have a little shop beside the restaurant near the lift but the door is shut, so if you want to buy any vegetarian products or grocery there, you need to approach them at the cashier in the restaurant.
