Eat vegetarian everywhere (1) 素食满天下(一)

1. Eat: “Bi Feng Tang” (typhoon shelter) Fried Hor-Fun, Luohan Mixed Vegetables, Dried Tangerine Peel-flavoured Red Bean Sweet Soup, Thousand Layers Cake

吃:避风塘干河,罗汉斋,陈皮红豆甜汤,千层糕

Venue: Kwan Im Vegetarian Restaurant, 190 Waterloo Street, Singapore 187965 (between the Goddess of Mercy Kwan Im Temple and South East Asia Hotel)

地点:东南亚观音素食馆,滑铁卢街190号,新加坡邮区187965(四马路观音堂和东南亚大酒店之间)

“Bi Feng Tang” Fried Hor-Fun is appetising and tasty, I like the capsicum especially. It can be a little oily by strict standards of oiliness-conscious diners.

避风塘干河令人开胃,也很可口, 尤其喜欢里面的灯笼椒。但对油腻十分抗拒的食客而言,或许稍微油腻了点儿。

The Luohan Mixed Vegetables is a gem with a good mix of greens, fungi, water chestnut, walnuts, dried daylilies (“Golden Needles”) and more. It’s tasty too.

罗汉斋是我吃过的罗汉斋中,最多食材的一次,有蔬菜、菌类、马蹄、核桃、金针等等,多不胜数,味道也很好。

A bowl of warm red bean sweet soup for dessert is a top choice. The texture and taste of this one is just nice but a little too sweet for me. It’s your lucky day if you happen to get a small piece or bit of dried tangerine peel, the ingredient that gives the dessert its unique aroma, because it’s used sparingly.

饭后来一碗陈皮红豆甜汤是首选。口感和味道都不错,但我觉得甜了点儿。陈皮的清香令红豆汤锦上添花,如果碰巧吃到一小片陈皮就更幸运了。

I am very pleased with myself for choosing the Thousand Layers Cake as a snack. It is a pleasure to savour it even when I don’t really fancy grated coconut, the orange layers. The white layers and the orange dots on top of the cake are same as Bao (steamed bun), please allow me to call it the alter ego of Bao, haha! It’s such a brilliant cake!

千层糕是我最大的惊喜。白色的层次和橙色的圆点跟包/馒头的食材和做法是一样的。橙色的层次是椰丝,就连我这个不太好椰丝的人也对这千层糕格外赞赏,它的好可想而知。
