We arrived in the rainy season of Hong Kong and saw an adorable doggy in raincoat and rain shoes after dinner at Ah Sin vegetarian restaurant! It was the nearest Chinese vegetarian restaurant around our hotel and even though we arrived at 9pm, customers were still streaming in.
Situated on the second floor the restaurant has a dim sum take away counter along the main road. By the step we finished eating, the stall had closed.
We ordered fried Chinese yam with chestnut and peanut floss HK$55 SGD$8.90
When it arrived we were expecting a yam basket instead we saw a huge plate of battered chestnuts with satay gravy. The texture was crunchy but was quite tasteless. It was such a new experience, we took a while to appreciate it.
Next to arrive was braised beancurd with beancurd skin and assorted mushrooms HK$60 SGD$ 9.70. This dish was kind of boring and was quite bland too. We have tasted much better ones in Singapore!
The last dish to arrive was stir fry bean sprouts pine nuts with mushrooms on lettuce $60 $9.70. The portions served were huge and this dish tasted like mini lei cha (thunder tea rice fillings without the rice and soup!) Our dinner ended on a healthy note and we hope to try tastier food places in the next few days.
