Wonderful place

4 Posted on 09 / 09 / 2012

This restaurant is amazing. In the midst of Little India is a fantastic vegetarian/vegan chinese restaurant. A huge menu full of choices, and the service is almost too attentive. Choice of brown and white rice and they give you free nibbles (tofu skins made with seaweed and pickled veggies) when you sit down.

Pros: Excellent food, Service, Price
Cons: No garlic used

Hi, I am newbie to vegetarian meals. I found this Resturant via happy cow. I was planning to go Mustafa, so found FO YOU YUAN within walking distance. We have two kids so we ordered four dishes, with a soup. The food are delicious and very creative, I was pretty impressed that it was vegetarian. There were some mock meat and tasty. The ambiance is typical mid range chinese Resturant, well suited for families. Nice place, would defineitely go again to try other stuff. Pricing is average, S$ 60 for four.

Pros: Chinese style Vegetarian , Not oily, Family friendly
Cons: Small place

Discover the Wonders of Healthy Chinese Vegetarian

Discover the Wonders of Healthy Chinese Vegetarian Cuisine in a 30 years old Restaurant ...

Fo You Yuan Vegetarian Restaurant may be unknown to many folks. But it is a Restaurant with 30 years history, serving healthy and gourmet Chinese Vegetarian Cuisine (awarded by HPB - Healthier Restaurant Award since 2005) by Owners-Mangers-Chefs (if I got it correct).
The Place
The interior of this restaurant is nondescript but with a very Chinese Feel. It serves up awesome and innovative vegetarian cuisine at a reasonable price. There are mock meat options, but if you don't fancy them, choose other healthier mushroom or vegetables choices on the extensive menu.
The Food
The specialty dish is SUGAR CAN E FLOWER, which is a RARE dish (and mysterious)! Opt for the Pan-fried Sugar Flower with sauce ($12+) if you do not want the Deep-fried Sugar Cane Flower. The banana-shaped buds of the sugar cane plant have a crunchy texture that gives a nice bite .
The Fo You Yuan Signature Rice Vermicelli or "Guai Hua" Rice Vermicelli ($8+) which is not listed on the menu is something similar to Fried 'Hing Hwa' Bee Hoon, is excellent - soft, aromatic, moist and delicious and yet not oily.
The Imperial Vegetarian Cocoon ($15+) which we ordered is mango with mock ham wrapped with rice vermicelli, deep-fried and garnish with mayo sauce. It is crispy with a little crunchy, delicious and was not oily.
The "Open Food" which is Ikan Bili ( deep-fried beancurd skin with nori is additive, simply love it) and Achar costs only $2+. Servings generous. We had Chrysanthemum Tea that is charged only $2+. Want more tea, just request for it.
I found many dishes I like (Vegetarian Escargo, Signature Rice Vermicelli, another mango dish etc) and their dessert menu (east and western) look tempting. The setting is ideal for family gatherings to enjoy healthy and yet delectable, creative Chinese Vegetarian cuisine, for a change. It is another eatery that definitely keeps me coming back for more.

Pros: Excellent Food, good value, Friendly Staff
