Discovering old tastes @ 2 Decades Old Restaurant
Posted on 03 / 27 / 2010
With the current trend of going Haute Vegetarian Cuisine or Organic Cuisine, yet there are vegetarian restaurants that still serve traditional vegetarian food. Trying to preserving the Traditional Vegetarian Food Culture heritage that would otherwise gradually fade from existence ...
Situated in the luxurious residential estates of Bukit Timah district, this 22 years old vegetarian restaurant at Coronation Plaza maintains an old-world charm and even carnivores are happy to visit them for the old tastes of Traditional Chinese Vegetarian Cuisines at a very reasonable prices (Service Charge: NO, GST:YES).
We were to attend a talk near Coronation Plaza and our initial plan was to have dinner at Miao Yi. Due to its opening time is from 6pm and we figured out we might not have sufficient time to really savour their dishes, therefore we postponed the dinner date.
How can I miss the opportunity of not having something from this restaurant where so many reviewers rave about it. Hence, I went and I dined alone! Shocked to see the restaurant was 60% full within 5-10 minutes after its opening hour at 6pm. By 6.30pm, it was 90% full, look like tables on weekend evenings are almost impossible to get, so reservation is a must!
The noodle dishes priced from $5 but Claypot Hor Fun @ $7 was what I had. Tasted like authentic Zi Char Hor Fun without meat. No mock meat for this dish at all. There were vegetables, mushrooms and Yam instead. The Chrysanthemum tea was priced at @ $1 for a whole pot. Comparing to other vegetarian cuisine in other vegetarian restaurants in Singapore, I would think each of them have their own unique feature and selling point, thus allowing diners with more choices and catering to different tastes.
Dining alone, I could only peek at other tables' dinner happily enjoying the Vegtarian Peking Duck, Ginger Rice and ... So, must go with family or friends, so you can try more of their delectable dishes ...
