Yesterday was my vegetarian anniversary and I thought since I had not celebrated it for the past six years I should do it this year, so I went to New Fut Kai vegetarian restaurant.
The restaurant was quiet and peaceful when we stepped in. Only one other table was occupied. The decorations are that of a typical chinese-food restaurant - chinese paintings, chinese calligraphy. This is also a Buddhist-themed restaurant, from the name itself - Fut Kai - which means "Buddha realm" in Cantonese dialect, and also from the mantra of the Medicine Buddha playing in the background.
We ordered two chef recommendations - vegetarian black peppered trotters and stir-fry french beans; as well as the steam vegetarian salmon.
Vegetarian trotters - these are really good, slightly crispy.
I love this, the french beans are not overdone and the gravy is nice.
Steamed salmon with silken tofu, for those who like a lot of flavouring in their food, better not order this, but for those who like their dishes light try it. The soup is sour and not hot, but there is a dash of chilli paste provided and when you mix it in you can turn it into tom yam soup.
Total bill with pickles, rice, chrysanthemum added in is $33.20 (discounted 10%)
Their location is at 282 Jalan Besar, Singapore 208925. Buses 23, 64, 65, 66, 130, 139, 147
