Fo You Yuan Vegetarian Restaurant

Shifted to 30 Lavender Street S'pore 338815




Located along the stretch of shop houses just directly opposite City Square Residences, S recommended to try this vegetarian restaurant which she recently visited.

We tried their Longevity's Noodles - quite nice:-) Soft & Smooth.
Claypot Brinjal with Petai - the dish's sauce is usually saltish in other outlets but here they do it with a plum sauce, unique taste. The dish should be more sparingly cooked with Petai to justify the name of the dish.

Vietnamese Prawn roll - may not look as presentable but quite nice, it's actually mashed potato fried with centre edible sugarcane stick that you could chew on.

Lastly, we end the feast with their ice-cream dessert: Fruit Gelato : Peach Fantasy and Lemon Limet.
At the size of the clenched fist, most of the Fruit Gelato were beautifully moulded into their representing fruits, especially the peach alike gelato that we originally could not bring the heart to eat it.
The refreshing Lemon Limet (refreshing mild sourness after a heavy meal) is strongly recommended.:-)

慈缘轩 (Ci Yan Xuan) Chinatown

Visited Ci Yan Xuan and noticed some new dishes that I had never tried before on its Today's Menu ~ Claypot Noodles & Steam Tonic Soup.
There are 5 types of Tonic soup to choose from at $6.80 each. I believe they will be of quality ingredients for the price. However, craving for soup noodles, I decided to try their Claypot noodles.


Though it came in a small pot than expected, it was quite filling. It was served with Yi-mee and usual vegetables as per normal Tze Char stall and tasted as authentic. I like their gravy that I ended up almost finishing the whole pot of gravy as well. :P Having Hot steaming noodles in an air-conditioned environment is really an enjoyable experience.:-) The boss said they will be adding more dishes such as Claypot Beancurd and Fried noodles in the evening menu too.

And on enquiry on when they are serving the Bibimbup, the boss revealed that they had just ordered vegetarian ingredients to prepare Bibimbup from their Korean supplier. They could only arrive in 1-2 weeks' time, so to call daily then to find out when we could savour that again. Sure looking forward to try it again!

Address: 8 Smith Street (shophouse near end of Food Street)

NATURE'S HARVEST CAFE



Saw the signboard near the window while crossing the street, realised that YOGI House at #02 corner of Fu Lu Shou Building changed owners. However, its interior design remained pretty much the same and still an organic cafe.

We tried their Thai Tofu which had thoughtfully separated its hazelnuts powder at a side. The beancurd was of nice texture with a nice sauce and initially we thought the powder was minced of peanuts & cashew nuts but clarified that it was hazelnuts!:-)

Next Organic cafe's favourite: Salad Sushi. No aloud ingredients, just mainly fresh and crunchy turnip and red carrots sprinkled with mock floss. Remains my favourite.:-)

Their dry noodles came with an appetising look and taste, accompanied with nice winter-melon taste alike soup. Nice bowl of noodles with black fungus, seaweed, carrot slices, red pepper slices, mushrooms, bean sprouts and mini corn.
I saw another table ordered their soup noodles which looked appetising too.
Will keep that in mind for next visit!:-)

Located at Fu Lu Shou building #02-08, at a corner amidst the crystal shops.
