Taiwanese vego food

3 Posted on 03 / 18 / 2012

There's a vegetarian menu here if you ask for it specifically. I enjoyed the pickles, the congee (made on water, not stock), and the steamed bun. The staff are friendly and it's a fun bustling atmosphere. Legend has it that the proprietor's wife is the daughter of Mother Chu from Pitt St, so we refer to this place as Son-in-Law Chu.

You pay at the table when you order, so have your loose change ready.

Pros: Vegetarian menu, Dishes not seen elsewhere
Cons: Vegan options not marked

Conveniently in the Heart of Chinatown

3 Posted on 07 / 28 / 2010

This eatery is conveniently tucked in the heart of Sydney's busy Chinatown. On the window, some kitchen hands are busy making dumplings, yu-tiaw (Chinese donuts), and other snacks. They mainly serve meat dishes, however do ask for a separate VEGETARIAN MENU, which includes vegetarian fried rice, fried noodles, noodle soups, congee (Chinese rice porrridge), stir-fries, etc.

The food taste good but doesn't have the "wow" factor, but the prices are good value, ranges from $1.20 for snacks/entrees and from $7.50 for main meals. The location is also very good, in case you are around Chinatown and hungry, especially if you are with non-veg friends - you would be able to sit down together and order what everyone prefer. There's always something for everyone here. This place is always buzzing with customers especially lunch and dinner time.

A must try: their Taiwanese snacks which they are famous for, e.g. dumplings, yu-tiaw (chinese donuts), vegetarian buns, pancakes, congee, and soy milk drinks (hot or cold).

Pros: convenient location, cheap, separate vegetarian menus
Cons: doesn't taste "wow"
