Mai Zhi Su (Bt Batok)

After reading alot from Veggie Bun's blog on MZS, I finally had a chance to taste its food when I requested my brother to help me buy dinner from the Bt Batok branch on his way home today.

Instead of adding mushroom, its Bak Chor Mee or Minced Meat Mee has fishballs & fish-cakes instead. Surprisingly, the texture of both are very much replicate of actual fishball & fish-cake. Very different from the usual mock fishballs & fish-cakes sold in market that are rubbery in texture. The texture of the noodles is smooth, very much like the thicker mee hoon version. Nice:-)

Originally I also ordered their "Black-black Face" recommended by Veggie Bun but was told that they do not have it today & was introduced "White-white Face" instead. Well, I thought that maybe the soup or noodles is different but in comparison to Veggie Bun's picture on "Black-black face", they seem to be similar. The noodles is also white in color, same texture as the Bak Chor Mee. Hmm, maybe the soup is slighter lighter in color than "Black-black Face"? Anyway, the soup has a very strong herbal taste, with nice mushroom & well cooked mushroom stalks as mock meat. It also has mock pork-rib :P . Overall, it is quite nice especially for those who like strong herbal soup.

We were told that MZS (BB) will be open for business on Day 1 of Chinese New Year. A good choice for vegetarians if you are looking for vegetarian eateries that day.:-)

It is located near Bt Gombak Mrt, at Blk 376, Bukit Batok St 31, #01-126, S(650376). Tel: 65630973. On its namecard, it indicated operating hours as Mon-Sun & PH: 7am to 10pm (Wow, no rest days :P).- sad to inform that this branch had closed down

May visit their AMK outlet at Blk 128 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 St 12#01-1853. Tel: 64563307.

Last year, when i went, i saw the notice on their glass panel that they are off twice a mth (can't remember which day, one of the weekday).

Oh, they change that?

Black black face noodle is nice for that price.

It closed and replaced by a new veg eatery - Eternal Vegetarian at the same location.

This new eatery got Monkey head mushroom too and another dish look like cereals prawn but it named Butter Frog Leg!

Look like same dishes everywhere now with slight modification! Want more different veg cuisine :p

Not sure the monkey head mushroom is those from Wholesaler or they did it by themselves from dried monkey head mushroom.

Cheers :)
