We went back to Po Kong a couple of times after that first review. We got a different waitress that had no clue about the menu so all of a sudden we were not so confident about the vegan options.
Second of all, we parked at the back and had a peek in the kitchen: disgusting! I will not set a foot in there again.
Plus the toilets were also gross.
We had wanted to go to Po Kong for a while but were put off by the fact it is vegetarian, and not fully vegan, so it makes it harder to know which options are vegan when they are not clearly defined on the menu. We asked for no veggie ham in any of the dishes and they did a great job.
The service was so fast, like it took a few minutes to prepare 6 dishes when the restaurant was already packed. We tried the salt and pepper deep fried konjac (amazing and highly recommended!), the bean curd rolls in black bean sauce, spicy green beans, 3 mushrooms and taro hot pot, pineapple fried rice and seaweed bean curd rolls. Everything was super tasty and the portions were HUGE! Luckily we were planning for lunch the next day.
Updated from previous review on Friday October 25, 2013Pros: Huge menu, Fast and friendly service, Large family style portion
Cons: hard to know what's really vegan?
