It was Mid-Autumn Festival and the fifteenth day of lunar month August last Monday. Being a full day vegetarian, Mom and I resorted to Tien Sing Restaurant for dinner on our way home from Miri.
Vegetarian restaurants in Brunei are normally very packed during the first and fifteenth day of every lunar months. Surprisingly, the restaurant was not as packed as I anticipated. Food were served promptly after we ordered. Mom and I both ordered a rice dish each.
Without further ado, let me show you what we had for dinner the other day!
Hotplate Homemade Tofu with Rice | B$5.50
Tien Sing Restaurant house made all their tofu and they contained egg. If you couldn’t consume egg, please let them know and they will replace with non-egg tofu. All the time I ordered their tofu dishes, the staff would double confirm with me if I am okay with egg in tofu.
I liked their house made tofu and they fared a lot better than the ones served outside. The house made tofu were deep fried and place atop of a small piece of omelette. Thinly sliced coriander leaves were strewn on top of the tofu. Taste wise, Mom commented that it was a bit spicy as the sauce was cooked with some chilies.
Chicken Claypot Rice | B$5.00
Portion wise, it was overly generous and could easily feed two in my opinion. The dish came with soy sauce coated white rice, deep fried mock chicken and some Bok Choy with extra sauce drizzled on them. The deep fried mock chicken were rather hard and dry for my liking. I personally think that the dish could do some ginger and sesame oil? I am no expert in this but this is just my two cents.
