Respond to Review of Popular Vegetarian Restaurant
Review: I never got speedy Hong Kong service in Kuching restaurants. But the meal here was definitely worth the long wait, as the quality matched the best I've had in Hong Kong. Had one of the recommended dishes (called Shanghai mixed vegetables), which exemplified the finest traits of Chinese cuisine: diversity in color, taste, and textures. Besides the standard veges, it included lotus roots, lotus seeds, and almond slivers - all delicately cooked, remaining crunchy though not raw. Also had a silky steamed tofu, served in a beautifully carved wooden platter (while waiting, saw a huge dim sum platter served on a model of a longboat!). It was such a feast that I almost felt obliged to contrive a justification. Yet it was not rich (i.e., high-fat), but light. Not a budget eatery (two dishes, steamed rice, and drink came to RM32), nonetheless highly recommended. NOTES: - According to sign on door, hours were 9:30-2, 5:30-9:30, closed only Thursday. No reservation was required. - On menu items, note the small symbols that indicate egg dishes, spicy dishes, and recommended dishes.
