Mama Vege Restaurant @ Bukit Mertajam, Penang

We all know that there is such much to choose from when it comes to the food scene in Penang. However, this time around, I had some vegetarian friends with means they wanted to try some Chinese vegetarian food. Being new in Bukit Mertajam, I tried looking into the internet and this place called Mama Vege Restaurant popped up and that too with some very good reviews. When I checked the distance, it was not too far from where we were and that being the case, we decided to head over for lunch. 

The Restaurant in BayuMutiara

A Lovely Cafe Concept
Unlike the usual restaurants, these guys were located on the first floor. Signage is good and you would be able to sight them from afar. The entire set up was very modern and I found the restaurant to be not only clean, but systematic too. 

The top sellers here are their value for money set meals. In fact, they are so reasonably priced and I don't see why it should not entice their customers. In fact, for those who are looking for Penang Street Food, they do have the vegetarian versions of those as well. Since there were a few of us, we ordered some dishes and the waiter neatly mixed and matched them so that they became part of their set meals. 

White Rice

Herbal Tea

Mock Mutton Curry
As a result, we had three plates of white rice, three glasses of Herbal Tea and three different dishes which we shared and that made it into quite a wholesome meal. Their Herbal Tea was excellent. It was not diluted and not too sweet as well. 8/10 shall be my rating for this. Their Mock Mutton Curry was another good preparation. It came with some mock meat, lady fingers and tomatoes and the gravy was really thick and tasty. Less oil too. It would have been better if they had added some potatoes as well. Nevertheless, it was a good preparation and I shall be giving this 8/10. 

Sweet & Sour Mock Pork

Assorted Mushrooms With Broccoli
Their Sweet & Sour Mock Pork was another lovely preparation. The mock meat was still dry, had a little bit of moistness and the cucumber and cauliflower add on's were good. 9/10 shall be my rating for this dish. Another good one that we had here would be the Assorted Mushrooms With Broccoli. The blend of sauces were truly nice and the veggies were not overdone. 8/10 would be my rating for this preparation. 

Mama Vege Restaurant does offer some good Chinese Vegetarian food at reasonable prices. I would recommend going for their set meals which is good value for money. Besides the usual Chinese vegetarian dishes, they also offer the vegetarian version of Penang's famous street food.
