一心素食, Chinatown

I love the stall's specialty: home-made traditional pumpkin cake & yam cake but it is always sold out by evening.
This round, I shall introduce its La Mian 拉面, which is a popular dish ordered by its patron. The noodles are the flat type, like those served in Lor Mee & its gravy tasted like the more diluted version of Lor Mee gravy too. The noodles & the gravy are quite nice. They are served with a variety of ingredients like mock meat, mushroom, bean sprouts & also some funny fried strips that resembled mock salted fish which I do not really like the taste. I noticed that its Dumpling La Mian is also another dish being frequently ordered.
Just beside 一心, is a new small stall selling only 3 specialties: Vege Roll, Rojak & Sushi Set. Its Vege Roll as shown in picture below contains raw vege, red & white carrot, beetroot, the sweet ingredient used in Yusheng which I cld not recall its name. Very nice & refreshing taste, like seaweed wrapping Yusheng ingredients. Its Sushi set which contains a few variety was not available today but from picture it looked nice. Its rojak with alot of peanuts looked nice too. I shall try next time.
It seems that with the opening of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum, there are many new vegetarian stalls/cafe/restaurants around the area. I just noticed that the Grand Court Vegetarian Restaurant also opened a new branch at the shop house besides this coffeshop. That's good news to Vege-lovers. Cheers :-)

Located at a coffeeshop at 39 Temple Street, 一心素食 is behind 德宝点心, De Bao Dian Xin. Just near centre of street opp Lucky Chinatown.
Opening hours: 8am to 10pm Daily.

Where is Grand Court Veg Restaurant?

It is just at the shophouse beside the coffee shop, either 2nd or 3rd storey, shdn't be difficult to notice its signboard once you locate the coffeeshop.

Hi Anonymous,
Sorry, I don't know its exact name, I think you may ask them during next visit But I think I saw them at those vegetarian supply shop, it could really be called mock "salted fish". :P
