This old shop is located just beside the famous Kwan Im temple at Waterloo street. I almost forgotten about its pioneer status in serving traditional Vegetarian Dim Sum until someone dana its pastries at the recent retreat.

Kwan Im Vegetarian Restaurant
Although not one with sweet tooth, I was attracted by its Lao Po Bing (Wife biscuits), its sweetness is just nice "Tian Er Bu Ni" that leaves a lovely sensation in your mouth. Personally, I feel that it tasted even better than the famous brand from Hong Kong.
I don't know why I had not visited the shop for years, always passing by, forgetting about its water chestnut cake which I used to love. It has a take-away counter at its shop's front to sell these traditional pastries as well as a mini Dim Sum section that included authentic water chestnut cakes, carrot cakes, vegetarian char siew buns & pastries, etc. and if you are early and lucky, you may still see the traditional vegetarian beancurb skin roll (Su Ji). Oh dear, thinking of them makes me crave for them already. :P
They are located at 190, Waterloo Street, Singapore 187965
