We had been to one branch of Nature's Vegetarian Restaurant before and were very impressed with the food served. The last time, we were invited by our vegetarian friends from Klang to have a Chinese New Year dim sum dinner with them. That dinner was incredible awesome and even now I still have those fresh flashing memory of the food I had. This time we got the chance to try out their main outlet at Bangsar, flushed along the famous Jalan Telawi.
As we stepped into this restaurant, I was totally impressed with the deco, the place was filled with beautiful and elegant rosewood tables and chairs with beautifully embedded designs crafted with the mother of pearl. I felt I was in a Chinese emperor’s dining room. Not only that, the place was filled with beautiful Chinese sculptures and was place elegantly.
Once we were at our table, we were served with a pot of fragrant Chinese tea, deliciously crunchy seaweed crackers and juicy sliced pineapple topped with satay sauce.
This time we wanted to have something simple, more homely type of dinner and we ordered a few vegetarian dishes. We ordered Hong Kong vegetarian meat “char siew”, curry mutton with bread, sweet & sour meat, steam silky tofu with melon, house special noodle “chew pai mein” and Cantonese style “yeng yong” noodle.
The vegetarian ‘char siew’ was really good, at the right sweetness and just taste like real meat but would prefer a larger cut.
Both noodle dishes were tasty and full of “wok hei”, a thumb up to the chef (Chef Ong)! Look at our feast of the day!
The sauce of the sweet and sour dish was delicious as the taste was well spot on, the meat was tasty too, good combination. I also adore the crispiness of the soya meat used in this dish.
The curry mutton was really good and texture of the soya meat was really good and the curry sauce really complimented the dish.
Next the tofu melon dish, the tofu was silky and the melon was well cooked, soft and juicy. The dish was tasty with the delicious light brown sauce.
By the time when we were about to finish the feast, Mr Alex Ong the owner insisted we try some dim sum and he ordered curry bun, “mut jup char siew bao”, “kum kwai ko” and “fong wor woo kok”. The “char siew bao” was good, the dough was soft, fluffy and the delicious “char siew” sauce just melts in your mouth. The “ woo kok” was so crispy indeed and the fillings was awesomely delicious. The curry bun was good too, very soft bun texture. The “kum kwai ko” was nice filled with lotus paste.
I got to say this is a very inspired vegetarian delight and with a huge range of dishes that will tickle your taste bud. I will definitely be back for more.
