园香素食 Yuan Xiang Vegetarian

The best place to have vegetarian supper if you are at Bugis area will be this food court located opposite Bras Basah complex. Shared this vegetarian satay dish with a friend who did not even realise that what we were eating was vegetarian. Look & taste wise is so far the best replica I had for vegetarian satay!:-)
So sad the food centre is closed and Yuan Xiang had moved, 1 less choice near City Hall. May visit it other outlet such as the one near Boon Keng MRT.

The stall is located at the food centre just opposite Bras Basah Complex.

Fo Lai Ping (Popular) Vegetarian

I had seen patrons ordered this dish & giving their thumbs up when they sampled. So, in my next visit, I ordered this vegetarian Sweet & Sour Pork (S$6) which really also let me put a thumb up and hmmm....very good culinary skill that captured the essence of the dish.
The only tiny setback that could also happened to the meat version is that they should had used the "less meaty but fatty" ingredient. :P But still a dish strongly recommended to try as the exterior is really very well-cooked.:-)

I usually only order this Luohanzhai (Mixed Vegetables) in a non-vegetarian eatery place but not knowing what to order, my friend ordered this. At $4, this was also surprisingly authentically cooked with generous portion of abalone mushroom, black fungus and green vegetables. Nice!:-)

It is quite easily accessible, being located near the lift lobby of Blk107, Lor 1 Toa Payoh, #01-0264 (same stretch as POSB & McDonald), HDB flat from Exit A of Braddell MRT.
They are usually opened to around 10pm but closed on most Sundays so do make a call at 63580107 to check to avoid disappointment.
