Anyway, I personally prefer the other stall, which takes a 8 mins walk from the interchange. Tried the chicken rice and I think its really not bad!
This is quite common at a lot of places. The chicken can be brought from suppliers. So you simply need to steam with minced ginger and mix with a little soy sauce and its good to serve!

This is the exterior of the coffeeshop, and inside, there are around 8 stalls selling different variety of vegetarian food!
Since the noodles stall was the only one opening that late, my mum ordered this Dry Mee Pok. I was amazed by the amount of ingredients they gave!~Noodles was okay.
Yong Tau Foo
Laksa Yong Tau Foo
Not to my liking perhaps the laksa gravy wasn't strong enough.
Carrot CakeSomething special about the carrot cake here is that you do not see it in small little cut up pieces. Instead, it is served as a BIG omlette, with the kuey in the middle. Kinda special, but I tasted more egg than the flour! It is a really popular dish from the tze char stall. Do remember to order the White version!

Free crackers to munch.. Nice, crunchy and not oily..
Tom Yum Fish RM 12
Ingredients comprise of some fish slices, cabbage, long beans, ladies finger, pineapples and tau pok. Soup tasted average, however tom yum shouldnt have tau pok as it would seem like veg. curry.
Chili Kang Kong RM 7
This dish was quite oily and it tasted sweet instead of spicy.. not to my liking though. If you do not take spicy food, this is definitely ok for you.
Claypot tofu RM 9
Colourful dish. Comprise of Fried tofu cubes served with mushrooms, tomatoes and capsicums. Tasted normal, but definitely cheaper than those you can find in Singapore!
Fried Abalone Mushrooms RM7
Really good dish. Very crispy and fresh abalone mushrooms. The chili dip was a plus!
One of the places you can consider if you do visit Malacca someday!

The stall is a typical Tze Char stall but has a little carrot cake wok at the side. I've read other reviews and found that the carrot cake is good here!
Anyway since it was our first time to this stall, we leave it to my aunt and cousin to introduce.
Tofu with abalone hotplate $12
Beautifully presented, this tofu dish is a MUST try! The tofu and mushrooms and abalone are stir fried in a homemade special sauce, then served on top of omlette in a hot place. The taste of the gravy is wonderful. Not too salty and has a little spice in it. Most importantly, it is rare to find abalone in such dishes, and there were many piece of it! Love it with rice! Do notify the stall owner if you do not take eggs to omit the egg below.
Sambal Kang Kong
Aint too spicy and tastes just right. Common dish that can be found elsewhere too.
Butter Abalone Mushrooms
In chinese this dish is usually known as 奶油田鸡..supposed to look like frog legs? Anyway, this is basically abalone/oyster mushrooms that are deep fried in batter, then cooked in carnation milk, Hence it will have a sweet and crunchy bite. Not suitable for vegans though. You can find this dish at Zi Zai Tampines as well as Ru Lai AMK.
Soup of the day
Soup of the day was lotus roots soup. Fresh and healthy.
Crispy Peking Duck
I tried to open up and analyse what makes up this dish but couldn't as it was too thin! I think it is mock meat that is wrapped in beancurd skin and flour then deep fried. You may eat it with the Yong Tau Foo Sweet Sauce. It would have been perfect if there is popiah skin to go with it. Anyway, really crispy and tasty!
If you recall most of the carrot cakes I eat are black cos' i always love it a little sweeter. Anyway, my cousin loves the white version. Nothing special as it still cannot be compared to uncle's. hahah!
I remember we also ordered oyster cake but I forgotten to take the picture. Tasted normal too. I do not recall the rest of the prices, but we paid $51 for 5 pax and the above dishes. Hence this is definitely worth the price. Note that these are all medium dishes. Meaning, if you do have lesser pax, you may order a smaller size. My cousin even had to ta bao the carrot cake and oyster cake home as we were too full already. I will definitely come back again.

I've earlier updated that this is a new stall at Singpost Banquet Food Court. I was delighted as I no longer have to walk all the way to Haig Road to eat on a hot day!
Anyway, I had a late lunch one day and had to ta bao from the cai gen xiang @ Singpost.
Was looking for soupy food and ordered kway chap. Man.. it was full of ingredients (soya intestines, beancurd and Tau Pok). I wasn't expecting much as I've always adore kway chap by my mum. But this kway chap was really good. It has a strong aroma of tonics which comprise of the star anis, cinnamon and some herbs too. Could tell that it was brewed for a long time, as even the beancurd has turned black. Tasted perfect with chili sauce.
I have yet tried other dishes. They do have the usual mixed-vegetables rice, with brown rice options as well as tze char too. Took the namecard and found that the Terminal 3 outlet is already closed down.

This is how the original packaging looks like. Made from Malaysia and is certified Halal in the package. Woohoo! At least even my muslim friends can eat this too. Anyway, siew mai originally comprises of pork and according to my friends is actually very fattening. Anyway this vegetarian version needs to be kept in the freezer and all you need is to thaw and steam a few pieces as and when you want! Comprises of a total of 72 pieces in a pack.
The ingredients comprise of soy protein, wheat, carrots and konnyaku wrapped in wanton skin. Tastes really chewy and definitely healthier. If you are looking at places that sell you, Yuan Xiang does serve this but they do charge higher at 50 cents per pc.
Anyway, you can get this at most vegetarian suppliers.

During this period of 10 days, the devotees and those attending the rituals would have to observe vegetarianism diets. Hence it was a true treat for us as vegetarian food is available in almost corner of phuket town.
Im going to introduce the foods that I did not mention in my earlier post.
Green Curry with Brown Rice Set 35BHTI'm not a fan of green curry but my cousin who ate this said it wasnt too bad! The authetic taste was there. Comprises of eggplant and some mock meats. It really affordable.
Comprises of Mushrooms, Cabbage and carrots. Simple but tasty!
Potato Snack 20BHT
I was still wondering how come so many people where queuing up to buy this, but I got blown away the moment i ate it. VERY crispy and tasty! It is basically potatoes thats sliced with a special machine into this spiral form, then dipped into some batter before deep-fried. Then topped with the various spice flavours available. We took the hot and spicy flavour. YummY~ Thats my dear cousin posing with the yummy potato.
Coconut Snack 20BHT
I have not idea what is the name of this snack but since its made of coconut fillings, i'm naming it the coconut snack. Tastes heavenly if you love coconuts. The exterior is just a very thin layer of flour, and baked with fresh creamy coconut milk.
Chicken Rice/ Char Siew Rice
Must buy - Vegetarian Instant Noodles (Tom Yum)
5 of us brought 3 boxes, which is a total of 90 pkts home. Its really good.
It is amazing to find more than 100 stalls selling vegetarian food. Ranging from the normal char kway tiao to noodles soup to mixed veg rice.. they have almost everything you yearn for. However, there are a lot of fried foods too, making it really unhealthy. Hence do CHOOSe wisely. Now that I am back, I gotta go on a detox mode due to the over-eating. My aunt was left very satisfied at the end of the trip and is dreaming about coming back again. I guess I can start organising a yearly vegetarian food tasting trip to Phuket real soon.
Diet: Vegan, no eggs and milk used in all foods sold during this season
Location: All over Phuket Town

It looked like a combination of my 1st and 3rd dish in a plate! Comprises of Mock Char Siew and Duck, Spring Roll and Crispy Goose. Seems like its missing in beehoon too. the crispy goose was better fried though. Everything is deep fried, so its definitely not suitable for the health enthusiast.
Sharks Fin Soup
Comprises of loads of ingredients like abalone mushrooms, enoki mushrooms and some mock meat. Mum said not too bad.
Brocolli with Mushrooms
Normal tasting, similar to those sold at tze char stall. The chefs (My mum and aunt) were still commenting that if they add abalone on top will be better.... until...
The next dish came.. and this was served separately.
Stir Fried Cauliflower
Seems to have the same sauce with brocolli earlier. The colour combi is not bad though.
Fei Cui Roll
Mum used to sell this at $3 per roll at her stall. This is one of the nicest mock meat I've tried so far. Easily found at most veg suppliers, but I think the best is from Xiang Xiang. Costs Ard $35 per big pack of 20 rolls I think. Easy to cook, just pan or deep fry will do. Tastes good with Sweet Sauce or Chili.
One of the better dish of the day... loads of veg, carrots and the taste was alright. However, noodles can be a little more dry.
All in all, aint too bad a meal since mostly are brought from the suppliers.

From the outlook, you may think that this is your usual "egg" tart. However, instead of the high-cholesterol egg, this filling here is actually beancurd (Tao Hway) instead! ALso, the colour is slightly lighter than the usual Yellow. The texture is smoother and softer than egg, doesnt taste too sweet and is encased in a delicious pastry. No pork/lard is used here. However, I believe there is butter or milk in the crust. Hence its not suitable for vegans.
Other than this beancurd tart, the confectionary sells your usual cakes and patries as well.
Diet: Vegetarian, may contain milk/butter.
