Let's go Vegetarian!



Once in a while I would like to have a vegetarian meal.  What I like most is dishes made with bean curd sheets, 'fu chook' or gluten puffs.    I've never been to this restaurant eversince they shifted to this new and bigger place and so last weekend, trotted there to check it out  ....... Gui Lin vegetarian restaurant.
We ordered 4 dishes for the three of us and let me introduce them to you, one by one ......





Tidbits made of seaweed, cost 3 rgt and when I asked what it was, ...... the waitress replied that it's their signature seaweed biscuits, and added that they're very nutritious.


My favourite, deep-fried mock goose, see it's half a portion, can you spot the 'wings' at the side?  This was totally made of bean curd sheets and there's chilli sauce to go with it.  Not garlic chilli sauce, because garlic and onions are not vegetarian in the religious view point.  This dish cost 5 rgt.


This is Lemon grass chicken, the chicken pieces were made of gluten puffs and it's slightly spicy, curry leaves were added for extra fragrance, taste wasn't too bad.


Yam rolls ..... yam paste wrapped with bean curd sheets and deep-fried, also served with chilli sauce.  The taste was quite alright except that I found the paste to be a little too soft.


Cantonese braised rice vermicelli ..... the rice vermicelli was shallow-fried for a while to give the 'wok' aroma,  heaped with a generous serving of oyster sauce gravy with mushrooms, vegetables, black fungus and mock squid, served with pickled green chillies.  It wasn't salty enough and we had to drizzle in some light soya sauce.


The last three dishes were 10 rgt each.  In fact, from the menu, you'll notice that they only serve one size dishes and the majority of them cost 10 rgt each.  Our meal came to 43.80 rgt plus tea.

  1. My daughter & I both love vegetarian food. We're having it at least once a week. I love how they cook these with sweet & sour flavour. But I still think the deep-fried mock goose is pretty oily. I don't really like it! I even make my own vegetarian rendang chicken. Hmm..very delish! The lemon grass chicken sounds very inviting too. Maybe I try that at home someday.
    Have a nice day!
    Cheers, Kristy

  5. Wow....all of them look interesting to me. But looks like that's a lot of gluten you eat. My tummy can't handle that.

    I love the vegetarian assam fish curry. Yes the goose is oily, they need to deep-fry it, that's why.

    Sonia, totally agree with you!

    I prefer 'Chuk Lam', the one at Kampar road, runs by a Buddhist nun. That place is full most of the time.

    Mary.
    Yes vegetarian food is mostly of wheat flour and bean curd sheet.

    Think most husbands are 'meat man', ha, ha! My other half also is not too keen, says it's oily.

    Have you been to this place in Melb? Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery, 141 Queen St., They serve tea and food, sometimes the chef is from M'sia. Seems the vegetarian food there is not too bad. Downstairs is art gallery re Buddhism and upstairs is prayer room.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
