Went dinner with two of my colleagues yesterday evening after work. Our first choice was Bee Hwa Restaurant in Kiulap but the restaurant was so packed. There wasn’t even one table vacant. Most of their roasted menu were sold out as well. So, we went for vegetarian food at Pureland Vegetarian House located a few shops away from Bee Hwa Restaurant.
My colleagues and I were trying to cut down on gluten intake so we went minimal with food that contains wheat. But what’s vegetarian cuisine without wheat products? LOL! We didn’t order any drinks but ordered plain water only. I brought my own drinking water stored in a thermal flask. We ordered everything in the smallest portion and they fed the three of us just fine.
Sweet & Sour Fish | B$6.00
The mock fish, made of wheat and wrapped in seaweed was good. It tasted almost like a real fish. Aside from the mock fish, this dish came with generous portion of greens too! The pineapples were sweet and I wondered if they used store bought canned pineapples.
Claypot Taufu | B$6.00
The three of us contemplated between Sizzling Taufu and Claypot Taufu. We settled for the latter as the former may be too heaty. We regretted and thought we should have gone for Japanese Tofu instead. Reason being the deep fried beancurd in our Claypot Taufu weren’t the freshest and tasted tad sour.
Stir Fry Hong Kong Kailan | B$4.00
We had a hard time deciding which vegetable dish to order. I wanted Stir Fry Eggplants but it wasn’t something that I would eat for dinner though. So, we resorted to a simple Stir Fry Hong Kong Kailan topped with crunchy bites that almost resembled garlic.
Fried Rice with Egg | B$3.50
We ordered two plates of white rice in the first place. But when we saw the next table of patrons having this, we decided to order one to share among the three of us. We loved it. The rice weren’t wet but grainy. The mock pork luncheon meat was good too. The texture was almost like the real deal.
