8 Moralities Vegetarian Restaurant

The former location of Old Street Taiwanese Delicacies (台湾老街) at 8-Row (八间) is now occupied by 8 Moralities Vegetarian Restaurant (八德素食馆). Its name is in reference to the 8 Confucian virtues as expressed in the phrase "礼义廉耻,孝悌忠信". The restaurant serves Chinese dishes which observes Buddhist vegetarianism. This means that onions and leek are avoided too.
My main dish is Butter Abalone Mushroom Rice (奶油鲍鱼菇饭, RM8.80). The crunchy mushrooms are fried with a coating of batter, while creamy butter sauce provides flavor. Meanwhile, curry leaves and bird's eye chili serve to improve the dish's aroma.
I also ordered a serving of Omelette Roll (蛋捲, RM12.00). The roll contains vegetarian fried meat fiber (素香酥肉发), carrot strips and cucumber strips. I love the crunchy texture of this snack. The taste is excellent too! I recommend that you give the Omelette Roll a try.
The vegetarian restaurant prepares several drinks from scratch. For example, the drink Luo Han Guo (罗汉果, RM3.00) gets its natural sweetness from the fruit itself.
8 Moralities Vegetarian Restaurant also serves a number of noodle and Western dishes. According to the staff, the vegetarian meat here is made from soy pulp (大豆纤维) instead of gluten (面筋). I look forward to trying these dishes next time.
