Healthy lunch

Today is 观音诞 (The birth of Guan Yin). Colleague from Costing department, Loi, who is a vegetarian suggested to have lunch together, as well to celebration iPis (company's performance incentive).
She ordered 8 dishes for the 11 of us. We headed to Jia Yi Dao Vegetarian restaurant (家一道素食餐厅) during lunch just now (view my previous visit here).

before the dishes came..
l-r: me, By Ling from Purchasing Dept, Loi, Wan, Foo

and now, the food we had:

#1. 梅菜花生烤 (meat with preserved vegetables)

#2. 海扒京白 (stir fry chinese cabbage with wolfberries)

#3. 胜瓜豆付 (stir fry tofu with loofah)

#4. 腰豆彩碟 (mixed greens with cashew nuts)

#5. 亚三鱼 (assam fish)

#6. 清炒菇类 (stir fry assorted mushrooms)

#7. 日本冬荷清炒 (stir fry japanese winter lotus)

#8. 沙拉虾球 (fish balls and salad prawns)

All the dishes are of big portion! But luckily we managed to finish all... it was a very healthy filling lunch! the service is fast and the food taste good overall.... total bill is RM 180 and shared among us...

last but not least, all of us! I seldom have lunch/outings with this gang of people... perhaps more chances in the future! ^^


  1. Paiseh.. I am a buddhisht but I din know today was Guan Yin's birthday until I read your post.

    I like vegetarian dish too especially my mom in-law's homecooked "Loh Hon Zhai". Yumz..:P

  2. Inspired Momx1, I love loh hon zai too!
    I think it's okay to have vegetarian food once a while.. cause too much meat also not good...

  3. Wow! The food really looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the photos and names, so I can place orders easier if I were to go for vegetarian restaurant. You know la, I seldom take vegetarian food one. Only know to point this and that, or follow chef recommendation.

  4. Yvonne, haha no worries~
    The chinese names is given by Loi, but the english names I simply translate only, hopefully it's understandable la.. kakaka :)

  5. Hi Hayley, seeing the delicious foods, I guess you and gang live to eat.....I eat to live, ha ha.
    Never knew about Kwan Yim's b'day.

  8. RM180 for 8 courses, that's definitely a suiside price!:D
