Macau - Shanghai Yuen Vegetarian (上海缘素菜馆)

Another of my Macau update is this place - my favourite out of all those I've gone to! Thanks to gaga again for introducing this place. We went there for dinner just before we fly back to Home.
We ordered the set meal as it was much cheaper in comparison. The set meal comprises of 5 dishes.

Sweet & Sour Pork

Quite a common dish that we can find at home as well.

Kofu & Fish combi - Cold Dish

These 2 are cold dishes (冷菜) whereby it is very common for most shanghai dishes to have. We chose fish & kofu. Kofu (烤麸) is a very common dish in Shanghai. It is basically made from gluten and marinated in soy sauce. Quite chewy but it goes get jerlak if you eat too much of it. I only got to know this dish when I was working in Shanghai previously. Anyway most people may not be used to cold dishes but it wasn't too bad to try authentic shanghai dishes once in a while.

Bak Choy with Bacon

Really well cooked bak choy that it was really soft even the stem portion!

Lemon Chicken

Chicken cutlets dipped in batter and deep fried, then served with honey lemon sauce. Tasted crispy and the sauce was good.

Corn Sauce Prawns

I can't remember the taste of this, but the corn sauce certainly tasted like corn soup which I adore!~

Other than the set meal, we also ordered 2 more dishes.

Xiao long Soup Dumpling

I've always been looking for a vegetarian version of the Shanghai dumpling (小龙汤包) and was happy to be able to finally sample one from this place. In SG, most people would eat at Ding Tai Fung or other chinese dim sum places. Sadly lingzhi doesnt serve this. The skin thin, but chewy. One bite into the dumpling whizzes out the soup. It is mainly made of mock meat, but totally blown me away!

Wanton Soup

Normal dumpling soup with some veg inside.

Diet: Lacto-ovo, some dishes contain milk,egg

Location: Rua de Marques de Oliveir 66 G/F 柯利維喇街66號 (at 近渡船街美心餅點)

Tel: 853-28358338

Do note that they are closed before 6 with the shutters down, hence if you are heading over for dinner, do not go before 6, as you may think its closed!

I just had "Xiao Long Bao" at Living Greens & my non-vege friend who was kind enough to sample with me praised that it tasted as good as the meat version. They used smashed tofu as ingredients and the skin was thin. A pity it doesn't have much soup with bite or else it will be perfect.
Classic Lao Di Fang also serve under their Dim Sum section but the standard is inconsistent.

Hi! I will be heading to Macau in June and would love to try out this restaurant. May I know the directions to get to this restaurant from Venetian Hotel? Thanks!

Hello Jasmine!
My apologies as I really have no idea how to go there from Venetian, as Venetian on the other side. It is recommended to take the free shuttle bus to the Macau Side, then transfer to public buses. I have tried using the Baidu Map previously. Alternatively, it is better to take cab.
