Po Lin Vegetarian Restaurant
Po Lin Monastery, Ngong Ping, Lantau Island
My mom wanted to try the vegetarian food at the famous Po Lin Monastry. There’s a choice of either a deluxe (HKD$100/SGD$18.10) or regular (HKD$60/SGD$10.90) set meal. Initially, I wanted to order 2 deluxe meals to share but the person said that they count by number of persons upon entry. In the end, we ordered the regular meals.
The Winter Melon Soup was quite bland and tasteless.
I think the Tofu topped with Corns and Peas is the best dish of the meal. The tofu is very fresh and soft.
The 1st vegetable dish is Stir Fried Celery and Bell Peppers with Mock Meat. It’s edible but nothing special.
2nd vegetable dish is Bak Choy with Mushrooms. I like this better than the previous dish. The bak choy is very fresh and green, and the mushrooms are very nice with an earthy taste.
As expected, this is a simple and no frills lunch.
I find that the meals are a tad too expensive but the vegetarian food served here are definitely substantial enough.
