Lao Di Fang Vegetarian 老地方素食 (Chinatown Complex Hawker Centre)

Visited the Lao Di Fang Vegetarian stall at Chinatown complex and glad to find it still in operation.
I tried its Laksa. Superb ! Spicy & Tasty with the fragrant Laksa leaves. And using the special noodles, longish type of what the local will call "MithaiMak", sensation between the thick meehoon & udon, it is a great try! :-)

Best way to locate #02-055 is to start from the centre escalator. On left of escalator, you could easily see "MingFa Fishball stall" move to its right corner and where you may think that it is the end, you will see a poster on the wall that guides you to stalls 051-098, just dare dare walk towards direction where you thought could be leading to end, you will see another lane of stalls hidden from the human traffic.

Great, must go and try. Good suggestion too. Toast Box's laksa is using Mi Tai Mug! There was once dys-funct veg eateries, using rice stick instead, special.

6 years ago, I was so crazy that I requested a veg stall to cook wanton mee and use laksa broth for me and I would pay for the extra. The combination turn out not so nice! They accomodation my werid request, off peak hour lah!

Maybe, Ramen would be a much better option rather than wontan mee. In fact, manybe BIG nice wonton (blanched) in laksa broth (not too much), sprinkle with laksa leaves or garnish with mint leaves can be an option too. Maybe, my next recipe experiement, i should try out this :p

cheers :)

Hi Crystal,
I tried using the thick laksa broth for mee pok & thick mee hoon with broth for Lor Mee and they tasted great. Yes, they will only entertain one when they are off peak period. Ramen with Laksa shd be good :-)

Hi Anonymous, They used to sell that and I think its shd still be on their menu. Do visit to explore their menu & come back to recommend what's nice.
Cheers:-)

I don't know, maybe, veggies eateries should be more innovative and flexible, to stand out, via some careful planning, so the materials would not cost too much and wasted …

Denise's got this - Designer Gourmet Sandwiches, where the customer is the designer - they can choose the bread, the meat, the seafood and veggies fillings and the dressing.

Many non-veg eateries are been very flexible and creating a new different dinning experiences.

Some of them mix and match the Japanese cuisine with Chinese Cuisine and come out something very acceptable...

Like Agedashi Tofu top with MaPo Sauce garnish with Deep-fried Lotus chip ... all these are very simple and is vegetarian and yet by combining them together, it gives a new yummy dish and yet something or food the customer can accept without much problem ...

If they can create something special, it can even become something customers can talk about them with others or be in the news …

Cheers : )
