Yishensu, A Vegetarian Connoisseur

My parents were away for the week end. I didn't have the energy nor the mood to cook so I dragged (actually she was more than willing to get out of the house too) a dinner movie date.

It was about 7.30pm when we reach Yishensu, A vegetarian Connoisseur. This month old vegetarian restaurant is located at Lot G207, opposite TGIF in the old wing of One Utama.

Ever since I saw the interior decorations, I have been wanting to try the food. Just love the flower arrangement at the entrance. I like the well lit place and the color scheme of the restaurant. Feels very cozy and comfortable.

A lady, should be the boss, told us that we would have to wait for the food as they restaurant was quite full that day. Me and my sis wasn't rushing anywhere so we waited.

As we wait... I enjoyed my carrot juice (RM6) and my sis her with her iced lemon tea (RM4.50) We waited... and waited... and an hour later our first dish came.

Vege bread roll with fruit salad. (RM14.80) This vege roll is made of vegetarian ham, cucumber, carrot wrapped with white bread. I was looking for the fruit salad what was mentioned on the menu... but... no fruit salad to be seen. This was kind of pricey.

I loved the lemon dipping sauce that came with it. Tasted like a mayo tar tar lemon sauce or some sort. I believe this is made in house. Good stuff.

I ordered the Wan Tan Mee with stewed G and dumplings (RM8.80). I didn't know what stewed G was... G = pig. HAHAHA yup, you got to pronounce it in Cantonese.

The noodles doesn't taste like the Wan Tan Mee in the coffee shops. I think another in house made noodles. But, too soft for my liking and not fragrant enough. The G however was better, but still no WOW factor.

The dumplings in soup was very nice. The Wan Tan skin is (I think) in house made as I could taste the difference. The skin doesn't have the alkaline taste and this tasted soft and smooth, yet tough enough to give the nice chew the normal Wan Tan skin does not. I have no idea what the filling was, but they should be more generous with it la.

My did ordered the braised mushroom chicken noodles (RM8.80). Wan Tan noodle with vegetarian meat and cuttle fish. I tasted the sauce a little, reminded me of the Hokkien 'loh ap', or in English, the braised duck. It had a clove in it.

I agreed with my sis when she said the sauce was too diluted. It didn't give the dish the kick.

However, my sis went on and on about this vegetarian chicken. Really looked like chicken. See the pores of the chicken skin? Cool huh.

Overall dinner was enjoyable =)

...went for Beowulf after that. Syok!
