I admit that I am not into vegetarian cuisines. Therefore, when a friend sing praises of the Classic Lao Di Fang Vegetarian Restaurant located at the Park Mall, I am rather indifference. On my mind, meat is meat. No way anyone could turned flour into flesh.

Anyway, I still have that bit of diplomacy to accept the invitation from my enthusiatic friends to lunch at the restaurant.

The mood at the Classic Lao Di Fang is what you will experience in any typical vegetarian restaurant: Manuscripts of Buddhism wisdom and Deity paintings hanging on the walls; humble wooden and rustic furnishings; Buddhist chanting in the air, and chinese speaking staffs etc.

On their weekdays’ lunch ala carte buffet menu were a good range of leafy cuisines with poetic names. From appetizers, soups, dim sums, rice, noodles, and desserts, they have almost everything covered. I am impressed when the service staff told me that the food were only cooked upon order.

Contrary to my belief about mock meat, the pork dishes here (counterfeit version of course) looks and tasted bona fide. The braised pork, pork leg slice, fried spare ribs with curry sauce were exceptionally delicious.

You also would not be suspicious of the chicken meat here. Among the many chicken dishes, I especially love the chicken curry. The chicken meat soaked in the thick and fragrant curry sauce could well surpass most stalls cooking the real thing.

Other commendable dishes at Lao Di Fang were the deep fried dumplings with pork and “Koo Chye” fillings, and the sweet potato leaf in sambal sauce.
