Respond to Review of CLOSED: Fo Guang Vegetarian
by mikebinos

Review: Our plan was never to even go to Kuala Lumpur proper. My wife and I were to fly home from Jakarta with a stopover in KL, then on home to Amsterdam. The flight from Jakarta to KL was delayed, however, and we missed our flight home, which meant 24 hours in KL until the next flight. We got put up by Malaysian Airlines in a hotel near the airport but decided to go into town for lunch and walked around Jalan Petaling. I don't know why the map of this place is in the wrong spot, but it's definitely on Jalan Petaling, and not in Petaling Jaya. We saw this vegetarian place in a foodcourt and decided to stop in while wandering Jln Petaling and the markets around it. We saw just the first half of the stall and thought "wow this is a lot of exciting vegetarian Chinese food!" Then we noticed then stall just kept going and going. Yes, the food is out and thus some of it has gotten cold, but the flavors make up for it. You get a big plate of rice and then load up on all the different dishes you want. All the best (Southeast Asian) Chinese dishes are here, and vegetarian versions (usually using mock meat) of traditionally meat dishes. I try not to go overboard on the mock meat but did get 2 mock meat dishes and about 5 vegetable-based ones (you can get a little bit of a lot of dishes) and all were excellent. Prices did seem kind of made up at the end but my wife spoke in Chinese so it ended up being incredibly cheap. Well worth getting stranded for a day in KL.
