Great tasting veg lunch buffet

Posted on 01 / 02 / 2015

We ate lunch at Jia Yi Dao. There's a lunch buffet with about 20 different sauces to go with either brown or white rice. Not so heavy on salt and oil as most chinese veg buffets, nor was there so many mock meats. Lots of greens, veggies, mushrooms and tofu. I liked especially luffa gourds with tofu, kabocha squash with some kind of green beans (not favas, although a bit similar shaped but tasted different), and stir-fried greens with black fungus mushroom and goji berries. With lemon juice, cost per person was 6,50 ringgits.

Pros: fresh ingredients taste good, brown rice, not heavy on salt or oil, inexpensive

Best Lunch in Taiping

Posted on 08 / 25 / 2014

Jia Yi Dao has by far the best lunch buffet in town. There are bigger ones, there are cheaper ones, but this has the best selection with the best flavor. The only thing you have to watch out for is what time you go. If you get there after 12:30, there won't be much left or you.

The dinner on the other hand isn't all that great. It's a lot more expensive and not all that tasty.

Pros: Lunch, Cheap, Really good
Cons: Dinner, Restrictive Hours
