Changing my mind

2 Posted on 04 / 05 / 2014

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.

One of my favourite restos in Vancouver

The food is excellent, each dish is distinct and the menu has a huge selection. I often wish I could be there with a large group of friends so we can try more dishes. The wait staff are fast and efficient. The place is clean and the opening hours are great.

Pros: Really good food, Lively and happy environment, Great experience
Cons: Sometimes have to wait for a table

Excellent choice for a Birthday dinner!

4 Posted on 07 / 14 / 2013

Came here on Thursday July 11th for a friend's birthday dinner. We were 13 people around a large table.
A great idea.
One of the guests was very knowledgeably about Chinese foods, and ordered our dishes.
We had an excellent set of dishes, such as:
spinach noodles with veggies
udon with black pepper sauce
sweet and sour tofu chicken with pineapple
cashews and greens with tofu chicken
fried rice
wonton soup
..
It was a very good meal of at least 15 platters/ dishes!!
I'd really recommend giving them a try.

Pros: Wide variety of dishes, Good value for money, Flavourful dishes
Cons: Some dishes were too oily

Heaven in the morning

Went to Po Kong Vegetarian Restaurant on a Sunday with friends. Off the Dim Sum menu, we ordered spring rolls, sweet rice dumplings, sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaf and barbecue buns. From their regular menu, we ordered Bean Curd Skin Rolls with Black Bean Sauce. Everything was fantastic. What a luxury to have an all vegetarian Dim Sum menu. The place is cheerful and very clean. We will return often.

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff, good value

Try it, you'll like it

Went with friends to try out this new veg Asian restaurant on Kingsway. Food was fantastic with generous portions, and reasonably priced. Friendly service. Reminded me of Whole Foods vegetarian restaurant on Main. Hope to see it busier next time, it certainly deserves it.

Pros: Great veg food, Friendly staff, Good portions
Cons: Plastic tablecloth, Brightly lit
