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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
