Ling Zhi vegetarian restaurant

Ling zhi !
Be prepared for a picture-loaded post as I had steamboat buffet. As It is highly impossible to review each and every dishes I sampled at the buffet, I have only included those that left an impression on me.  Hope this post will be of help to save stomach space, and direct you to the yummmiest food in Ling Zhi hotpot buffet!  ;)

Hotpot and Dimsum buffet with a la-carte dishes: 
$22.80++ Mondays-Thurs
$24.80++ Friday, Weekends, Public Holiday

Great ambience, don't you think?
We were the first few customers as we reached early.
Great opportunity to capture photos!

Beautiful lotus paint.

Vegetarian pork pastry, curry puff, yam croquette, carrot cake
The vegetarian pork pastry is a must-try. The sweetness of the fillings that paired perfectly with the crunchy pastry crust is unforgettable.

I just couldn't get enough of their self-made fresh chilli and sesame paste!

Easily one of the best Chinese curry I have sampled.
The curry has just the right amount of spiciness and taste, with a wonderful mix of coconut milk.
The tau pok is still crispy and oh-so-flavourful! 

Tom yam steamboat!
What I love about this steamboat buffet is the freshness of the vegetables and other ingredients.
This particular plate only consists of less than 1/4 of the food available for the steamboat.
The ultra-fresh monkey-head mushroom is my favourite of them all, and I almost took a whole bowl of it! 

I really enjoyed the Rojak served.
It is so rare to have really fresh fruits in a rojak and the crispy you tiao topped with delicious sweet sauce is a huge plus too!

Spoilt for choice!

Dim sum time!

These 3 are my favourite!
(The names of the Dim sum not stated >< )

I could'nt stop gushing about how delicious this tian teng tastes!
Just the right amount of sweetness.

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert 味香园甜品

Ciaossu people!
Sorry for the huge delay in blogging! x)
Recently, my family and I dropped by our favourite dessert place after our dinner.
 It has been soo long since I last visited the place and I was really excited about visiting there again.
Mei Heong Yuen is located at the Temple street and is less than a 5 minutes walk from Chinatown MRT station. This popular dessert place always has an endless stream of customers, so be warned that a vacant table is an unusual sight. My top few favourite desserts from this place are namely, their almond paste, black sesame paste, carrot cake and yam cake.  Recently, my sister informed me that ultra-fine shaved ice, a highly popular dessert originated from Tai wan, is added to the menu. I waited 2 whole weeks and finally had the chance to taste it that day.

This place looks so foreign, a huge disparity from Singapore's usual tall buidings and shopping malls.
But I really love the vintage oreintal feel of Chinatown.

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert place!!

Mango shaved ice $5
The weather was blazing hot that day. I could barely contain my happiness when this dessert arrived, literally grinning from ear to ear. This Mango shaven ice not only quenched my thirst, but tasted amazingly tasty as well. Initially, I suspected that this dessert would taste a little diluted, afterall, it is made of ice. But I was so wrong. I was in for an intensely fresh and flavourful treat. It tastes so good I couldn't stop myself from scooping for more.

Durian Shaved ice $5 

My family and I had a heavy dinner, and we thought just the mango shaved ice would be sufficient. But all of us couldn't resist ordering another shaved ice. When the durian shaved ice arrived, my family was so eager, they started digging in almost immediately( even before I could snap a photo).  I am glad that the fruits in these shaven ice dessert tastes genuine and fresh, not canned. Also, another plus point is that they are generous with the toppings, with every bite accompanied by rich flavourful durian taste.

Trying to make him smile wider x)
The weather was so humid I had no choice but to tie up my small bunch of hair.

Let me introduce this squirrel cat I always see near my place.
I call him squirrel. hehe. 

Handsome boy.
Beautiful fur don't you think? But squirrel is abit old.
I think he's a ragdoll mixed breed.

Lots of love!
