莲芯茶坊, Lotus Heart Tea House

Yes, I couldn't resist the temptation to visit them to try their new menu:P

I discovered that their previous quarter's menu still remains but they added more dishes shown in their poster like the Lamian. Deciding that their Seafood Lamian may contain too much mock products as reflected from their poster, I ordered their "Eight Treasures Spicy Lamian" (sorry, cannot remember exact name:P) which had a good portion of beancurn cubes and mushrooms. (I think some unidentifiable slightly bigger pieces of bean curb-like ingredients maybe monkey-head mushrooms). The Lamian's noodles texture was relatively smooth and I liked its spicy sauce or gravy that had abit of Sichuan Spicy taste. Its roasted cashew nuts & peanuts added marks to it too. Mum liked their delicate yam pastry while I am not much a yam pastry lover myself :P.

With their new concept of having tables available at where it used to be an exhibition hall, ( now where the souvenir shop & library are) you could have an enjoyable meal there too. They have some nice souvenirs that you could consider as Christmas gift, e.g. their presentable recyclable bags, hp accessories etc.

The tea house's operating hours are daily from 9am to 7pm with last order at 6.30pm.
It is located at level 2 of Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum which is located at Chinatown: 288 South Bridge Rd, off Sago street or opposite the famous Maxwell food centre, nearest MRT: Outram/Chinatown MRT.

The recipes for the Vegetarian Seafood Noodles Soup and Eight Treasures Spicy Bean Paste Noodle is printed in their free Buddhist mag - Nagapuspa (Nov/Dec 2008) issue.

The mag is available at BTRT :)
