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.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add in the high protein flour, seasalt and sugar.  Mix well.  Then add in coconut milk, cooking oil, egg, yeast mi

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too! Mixed Fruit Bread  ~    杂果面包 Ingredients 290 gm high protein flour 10 gm wholemeal flour 30 gm sugar 3.1/2 tsp milk powder 18 gm butter (cubed) 1 tsp seasalt 100 gm dried mixed fruits (I used cranberries, sultanas and golden raisin) 1 whole egg beaten wtih 1/2 tsp water, for egg wash 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cinnamon  (optional) 2 tsp dry yeast             ) 170 ml warm water     )  Yeast mixture 1 Tbsp sugar               ) Method Add yeast and sugar to warm water, stir and let it set for about 5 to 8 mins. till foamy.
