Sun Rise Vegetarian Restaurant

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

Good news for all the vegetarian fans ! I found a restaurant in Kuchai Lama which serves extremely delicious vegetarian food. They have a variety of food ranging from “man-made” chicken, duck, fish …. etc … they even serve sharks’s fin! If u’re thinking that vegetarian shark fin is cheap then u’re wrong! It costs about RM20 – RM 30(can’t really remember the price) for that small bowl ! Let me know how it taste if u ever try it !

I ordered a “Pei Pa Duck”, Salted Deep Fry Lotus and also Asam Fish … All these three dishes has a unique taste … they really have have the taste of the real duck, and fish ! The deep fry lotus is best served as a snack after meals. It’s crunchy and abit salty.

Overall, it’s a nice vegetarian restaurant and it’s not very expensive for all the dishes (unless you order the shark fin lahh … )

I decided to chance upon this place since the feedback was interesting (based on The Star’s review). The overall experience was wonderful … but expensive as expected from Japanese cuisine.

As for me, the booths were sufficient and comfortable enough, letting the tastefully lighted deco consume me. Ordered the following spread of mouth-watering experience…

Penang Village

A recent hit chain of restaurants with nyonya & penang offerings in an oriental / nyonya / chinese fusion environment ie. high class hawker restaurant (that’s how I describe to my foreign friends). My usual orders are prawn mee, char kway teow (RM7.90), ice kacang (RM5.50)/ chendol and assam laksa. Ordering the nyonya dishes for a proper meal is also nice. Choosing the ‘recommended’ choices will be a sure hit eg. Chicken kapitan (RM13.90), samosa, brocolli and prawn (RM14.90), Cincalok omelette (RM8.90), Yin yang Garoupa (RM48). Lunch crowd is to the brim compared to dinner.
