Taste Vegetarian Restaurant @ Kota Damansara

Today we had some limitations in food tasting, we were vegetarians. As such, was thinking of a good place to go for dinner and this restaurant came to my mind. Its called Taste Vegetarian Restaurant and is located in Sunway Damansara area in Kota Damansara.

It is located right opposite Khalifa Restaurant and behind Sunway Giza...directly opposite the car park entry and exit points.  I made a mistake of not taking the building photo as that would have made it easier fellow food lovers to find the place easily. Anyway, the address is as perfect to find it through any GPS.

The restaurant interior was quite simple but it had a Chinese Tea House resemblance. It brought back my memories in Beijing. It was quite crowded when we arrived.

The menu was quite comprehensive and I observed that they do not use eggs, garlic and onions in any of their dishes. Therefore, some sects from Hinduism and Buddhism who do not consume these items can freely come and have their meals here.

The lady boss came and we were assisted with the orders. Since it was just the two of us, there was a limit as to the number of dishes which we could try, though I had hoped of tasting more dishes here. This time we kept to to three only. 

Buttermilk Mushroom @ RM 15.00
This above dish was one of their highly recommended dishes here. It was truly fantastic. The Buttermilk had seeped into the food wonderfully and the mushroom was crispy. Highly recommended!

Tofu in Minced Mushrooms @ RM 12.00
This was another excellent dish. I believe they were somehow trying to imitate the Mapo Tofu except this was the vegetarian version. The taste was good for a vegetarian dish and the portion size generous for the price. 

Kangkung Belacan @ RM 9.00
This was another great dish here. I truly wonder how they recreated the taste of belacan which is typically dried shrimps into a vegetarian wonder. Truly a great match of taste to the original. I have tried vegetarian variation of this many places before and this is definitely the best.

On the whole, this is a great place to have vegetarian meals. The price was decent compared to many of the vegetarian restaurants out there. The service was very fast, in fact the food came in less than 10 minutes. I believe all their workers are Cambodians and they were very hard working. Another point to note is that they also offer both white and brown rice.
