Buddha Jump Over the Wall @ ($15/$25/$25)+
When I last dined at Eight Treasures Vegetarian Restaurant, something caught my eye - Buddha Jump Over the Wall, which is a Chinese Cuisine delicacy dish! So, on our next visit, we ordered this specialty dish - Vegetarian Version Buddha Jump Over the Wall. The dish looks presentable and the pricing for this dish is reasonable ($15/$25/$25). We ordered the $15 Buddha Jump Over the Wall which is more than enough for 2 pax.
It consists of broccoli, mock abalone, mock shark's fin, wolfberries, mushroom, mock sea cucumber, angelica root (I think). What I loooove most was the mock sea cucumber, the chewy texture was just right and it tastes so delectable after soaking up the rich broth. It paired beautifully with their special brown rice - which consist of barely too and very delicious.
8 Treasures Herbal Soup @ S$18.80+
Herbal soups served in Vegetarian Restaurants are not losing any goodness. There are 2 types of herbal soups to choose from - 8 Treasures Herbal Soup and Ginseng Mock Chicken Soup.
As I am not a big fan of mock meat, I picked the 8 Treasures Herbal Soup that uses many different types of herbs and mushrooms This is a big pot for a small eater and both of us just could not finish it. The waitress was so proactive that she suggested packing it up for us to take back home.
Black Pepper Mock Chicken Chop @ S$7+
They has quite an extensive menu with 120 dishes - which include a well planed small section on Western Menu that consists of Crispy Green Salad, Fruit Cocktail Salad, Black Pepper Mock Chicken Chop and Fish and Chips which taking into the needs of local and tourist (vegetarian) who likes western food.
On the whole, the food is more toward Traditional Chinese Cuisine (Vegetarian) and is delectable. Prices, in the range of any causal dinning non-vegetarian restaurants/eateries but if with their privilege card that entitle to 12% off, it offset away the 10% service charge. Ambience - a Chic and Stylish Chinese Vegetarian Restaurant with a lively and cool ambiance.
My non-vegetarian friend who has a lovely dinner at this restaurant decided to bring her Catholic Friend to this restaurant and they really enjoy and like the food even it is vegetarian.
