Brunch at Fu Tien Vegetarian


Recently, we had brunch at a vegetarian shop in Medan Ipoh Bistari ~ Fu Tien vegetarian.  I find that the menu is slightly different from the norm as they have sushi, bento and other a-la-carte dishes that sound interesting.  I ordered some sushi as I've never tasted vegetarian ones before.
The picture above is Fu Tien Salad consisting of shredded carrot, red cabbage, cucumber, potato and abalone topped with some flakes made from beans, sesame seeds + a mayo dressing.  Priced @ 6.00 rgt
I noticed that this is a popular item amongst the customers.





This is Mika sushi with apple, mango, carrot, Chinese turnip rolled in seaweed powder ~ 7.00 rgt






Fu Tien special fish made of seaweed, served on a bed of shredded cabbage and carrot, laced with sweet sour sauce  ~ 9.00 rgt.






This is their signature dish .....Lotus root with marmite sauce, served on a  bed of red cabbage and carrot. ~ 8.70.  This is quite unique and it's delicious.






Ginza sushi .... made with fried tuna, seaweed salad, cucumber rolled with crispy flakes ~ 7.00 rgt



The interior of the shop, clean, not very spacious and we were told that they do not entertain reservations.

The total bill, plus 2 green tea drinks came to 41.70 rgt. for the two of us.  This place will be  full come the 1st and 15th day of each month where people of the Buddhist and Taoist faith observe a vegetarian diet.

Fantastic Chicken/Chicken in black bean sauce ~ 豆豉鸡

This is a copycat dish from Old Kingdom Chinese restaurant in Surrey Hills, Melbourne.  When we saw 'Fantastic Chicken' dish on the menu, all of us were curious and yes, we agreed to give it a shot.  When the dish was served, there's nothing 'fantastic' about it, it's just chicken fillet fried with black bean sauce.  Nonetheless, it was a delicious and tasty dish to pair with a plate of steaming hot white rice.
