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.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.

Kai Chai Paeng aka Little chicken biscuit

Kai Chai Paeng or 'Little chicken biscuit' was one of my father's favourite item to take away whenever we stopped by Bidor, a small town south of Ipoh on the way to Kuala Lumpur, long ago before the North-South Highway came into existence.  Those days, Bidor's famous restaurant, Pun Chun,was like a half-way house whereby travellers would stop by for their signature 'Ngap thui meen' or duck thigh noodles.

Pun Chun restaurant is right in the middle of town along the main road and has been in operation for 70 years and their Kai Chai Paeng were of the thick, doughy type made with lard and some pork but now they also have the thin and crispy version.

Another small town, known as Kampar which is nearer to Ipoh is also famous for their thin and crispy version of  Kai Chai Paeng.  However,  I'm not too sure which town is the originator of these 'chickenless', unique but absolutely aromatic 'Little chicken biscuit'.
