Respond to Review of Dharma Realm Guan Yin Sagely Monastery
Review: A friend who gave us the low-down on KL vegetarian food told us about this place behind a Buddhist temple within walking distance of KLCC park/mall. We stayed 6 days in KL and ate 3 lunches at this place. There's no reason not too, there is so much to choose from you won't get everything you want the first time. You are charged per plate, so get as much as you want (we had just come from Indonesia, where most warungs charge you by number of dishes eaten and where eating a little bit of 4 things costs more than eating a lot of 1 thing, so our first time here we weren't sure if it was the same and only got a few things, the second and third time i think I tried 10 different dishes...). Some mock meat but also delicious vegetable dishes. Pumpkin dishes, lotus root, so many different flavors. THE STEAMED BUNS! The old women making the steamed buns were super cute and excited to talk about the buns they were making. We tried the peanut, red bean, and lotus paste, as well as the cookies (great!) and the steamed cake (wow). All seemed to be made with whole wheat After getting all this I think the price came to about 20 ringgit for two people, including getting steamed buns, which comes out to less than 7 USD. You cannot beat that for the flavors, the quality, the friendliness, the nice scene of lunchtime KLCC business-types mixed with Buddhists all eating while chanting is played over loudspeakers. Amazing place to eat. Prior to eating we liked to walk the 1.2km loop of KLCC park a few loops, getting prepared for what we were about to do to this buffet...
