Kong Tiak Vegetarian Restaurant

As celebration for my boss’ birthday, we went on to a medical mission. So many people in need but so few resources to share. After the trip, we went to Kong Tiak Vegetarian Restaurant for dinner. Three round tables were reserved and the food was served. The restaurant has only two food servers and a manager who oversees them.

20120629-124530.jpg Next dish looked like fish fillet in mock oyster sauce. It resembles fish when cut in half with fork.

20120629-124543.jpg I think this was supposed to be sweet and sour mock pork. The mock pork was so crunchy and the sauce was sour.

Most of my officemates didn’t like the taste of some of the dishes. Still, we went home so full that night. By the way, they also serve Silver Rolls (mantou), fried bread then wrapped in foil. One of my favorite breads, it is crunchy on the outside and sweet and soft on the inside.
