Chutney Mary Indian Fast Food @ Changi, Singapore

As usual, it was another early flight in to Singapore and in order to avoid getting stuck in the traffic jam in the city, I decided to have my breakfast at the airport itself. Usually, I would avoid doing this since I would prefer to explore the local food, nevertheless, going into the city at this hour looking for food would be a waste of time since it would be jammed almost everywhere. 

Chutney Mary in Terminal 2, Changi

I have visited Chutney Mary many times and I believe that they were all for dinner and I have never been too happy with the food served then. Since I have not tried their breakfast spread, I decided to give it a try this morning. They had a good spread of South Indian dishes which seemed okay to me.

Coffee @ SGD 2.00

Idli Vada Set @ SGD 6.00
Their Coffee was good and it was served hot. Balanced amount of sugar was used and I really enjoyed it. My rating for their coffee shall be 8/10. I had also ordered their Idli Vada set which came with two Idli's, one Ulunthu Vadai, some Sambar, Tomato Chutney and Pudina Chutney. 

Unlike what I get for dinner here, this was really good and most importantly, the Idli and Vada were fresh. The Idli was reasonably soft and so was the Vadai. Their Chutneys were good too and I totally loved the Sambar. A lovely breakfast it was and I would rate this at 8/10. 

Unlike what I used to get for dinner at this very same outlet, the breakfast options were surprisingly good. The Idli's and Vadai was fresh and reasonably soft. Their Chutneys were good and so was the Sambar. Worth visiting them if you're looking for a reasonably good South Indian breakfast in Changi Airport.

Vegetarian Food Stall at Neighbourhood Food Court @ Kota Damansara, Selangor

At some point in time, I used to visit Kota Damansara almost daily for dinner. There are so many good food outlets here and at any point in time on any day, you would have so many places to choose from . One such favourite places of mine for a good vegetarian lunch would be Neighbourhood Food Court. 

The Chinese Vegetarian Stall

Excellent Variety
Neighbourhood Food Court has a lot to offer in terms of variety but this place basically comes to live in the evenings. For lunch, there are just a handful of operators that are open. I specifically like this Vegetarian Stall because of the variety that they have and their prices are very reasonable. This stall is located right at the main entrance as you walk in from the street side and not the car park side. Another good thing about this place is the easy availability of parking. There is a multi storey car park that is attached to this food court and that makes things even more easier. 

My Lunch @ RM 6.00
I took a number of items and they had only charged me RM 6.00 for my meal. The food was good and they were fresh. My rating for the food here shall be 8/10. 

For a good Chinese Vegetarian lunch in Kota Damansara, I would recommend heading to Neighbourhood Food Court which is located in Sunway Damansara area. Right at the entrance, there is a Chinese Vegetarian stall and the variety that you get is really good. Tasty food and reasonable prices.

KA Vegetarian Restaurant @ Klang, Selangor

We were in Taman Chi Liung, Klang this morning for some work and I had some friends who are vegetarians with me. Right after our discussion, we were looking for some place to have lunch and one of the friends suggested this restaurant which apparently is one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in Klang. 

The Restaurant In Taman Chi Liung 
Locating this restaurant wasn't difficult and parking is pretty easy around this side of Klang. The restaurant itself was huge and they occupied two shop lots. Very spacious and clean as well. 

As you can see from their menu, they have a range of cuisines that they offer and they are all vegetarian. It is more like a Malaysian restaurant and the prices seemed reasonable. 

Chinese Tea @ RM 0.80 & Asam Boi @ RM 1.90
The Chinese Tea was good but the Asam Boi was just so so. I am not sure if the Asam itself was not fresh but it just didn't seep well. My rating for the previous shall be 9/10 and the latter 5/10. 

KA Special Noodle @RM 7.70

Sweet & Sour Chicken Chop Rice @ RM 6.60
The KA Special Noodles was basically Yee Mee. The portions were good but taste wise, it wasn't the best vegetarian version of this dish that I have tasted. My rating for this shall be 6/10. Similarly, their Sweet & Sour Chicken Chop Rice was just above average only and for this, my rating shall be 5/10. 

Based on the dishes that we had tried this afternoon, I wouldn't get too excited about the taste. I am not saying that it wasn't good, it just wasn't great. However, the variety and mix of cuisines that you get here is simply remarkable. Worth visiting if you're in the area and looking for some vegetarian food.

Restoran Puchong Yong Tau Fu @ Seri Kembangan, Selangor

This afternoon, we were in the mood for some Yong Tau Fu and when I looked up in the internet for some good recommendations, this Restoran Puchong Yong Tau Fu came up. Since it is not too far from where we were, we decided to drop by for lunch. 

The Restaurant in Pusat Perdagangan Seri Kembangan
This restaurant is located along Jalan PSK 2 which is in Pusat Perdagangan Seri Kembangan. And even when you're driving on the main road, you would be able to sight them. The restaurant is huge as they occupy three shop lots and that is a good indicator that their business must be good True enough, when we arrived, the place was almost running at full capacity. 

Besides Yong Tau Fu, they have a variety of other dishes that they offer which includes Steamed Fish. The prices are not really cheap and are slightly more than other Yong Tau Fu restaurants. Nevertheless, if it is good, then we surely have no reason to complain. After having gone through their menu, we registered our orders in the Order Chit and passed it over to the lady boss. 


Herbal Tea
One thing that I like about this restaurant is the space factor. Since they occupy three shop lots, the tables are neatly spaced out and it is not really congested like some restaurants. Moreover, all that you may need in terms of cutlery and sauces are neatly placed on all tables. In a matter of minutes, our drinks were served. I ordered a glass of Iced Herbal Tea and it was good. Not too sweet and pleasant. My rating for this drink shall be 8/10. 

Okra Stir Fried With Sambal Belacan

Chee Cheong Fun

Paper Wrapped Chicken
We ordered a small portion of Okra stir fried with Sambal Belacan and we were surprised to see the huge portion being served. I double confirmed with the waiter if that was the small one and they said yes. Certainly looked much bigger than the photograph in the menu. So, if you're going in a very small group, please do take note of this. Taste wise, I would say that it was just okay. There should have been more Sambal Belacan and the lack of it made it taste quite bland. My rating for this dish shall be 6/10. Their Chee Cheong Fun was nice. It came with the sweet sauce and you could add as much chilli that you prefer. This I would give it 7/10. Their Paper Wrapped Chicken was above average. Not to say that it was bad, but my mind is constantly comparing this to the one that we had in Puchong. Huge drumstick but taste wise, it could have been better. My rating for this shall be 7/10. 

Steamed Egg

Yong Tau Fu in Soup

Fried Assorted Yong Tau Fu
The Steamed Eggs were very good. The texture was just perfect and it had just the right amount of sauces. 9/10 shall be my rating for this dish. We choose a number of Yong Tu Fu items that we added to the soup and they were all good. I would rate them at 8/10. Their fried items however could have been better. I didn't quite like it as it was soaked in oil. My rating for this shall be 6/10. 

We totally enjoyed their Yong Tau Fu which came in clear soup. They were all good and so was their Steamed Eggs. The fried items however could have been better and the same goes for their Paper Wrapped Chicken. In summary, decent food but slightly pricey.
