De Sheng Vegetarian Food - Ang Mo Kio
De Sheng Vegetarian Food
Location: Block 4011, Techplace 1, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10
Opening Hours: Unknown
Economic Rice options are surprisingly vast for such a small stall, with there being a wide selection to choose from. Although, as is the problem with most Chinese vegetarian stalls, there is just too much mock meat dishes. Give me more ladyfingers, give me more eggplant, give me more vegetables! With that being said, the dishes did taste good. One other criticism I had was the dishes were very cold, which made me wonder how long they were festering there. Considering business is dreadfully slow in this JTC, I am fearful that it is longer than the regulated two hour limit. Satisfying food overall.
Price: $2.50. 6/10
Duck Rice was probably a mistake in retrospect. The portion sizes of all dishes from this stall are huge, therefore really good value. I was a little disappointed that this dish had only plain white rice. That being said, all other aspects of this dish were spot on. The mock 'duck' meat is derived from mushroom stems, which had a nice chewy texture, and packed with moreish juices. Fresh coriander is sprinkled liberally on top, which compliments the mushrooms ideally. For a coffee shop in an industrial area, this is really an exceptionally satisfying dish.
Price: $2.50. 8/10
Conclusion - As I was eating alone, I left this small coffee shop extremely full and equally as satisfied. As far as JTC coffee shop stalls are concerned, this is probably the best I have eaten at, and one I would certainly encourage you to make the visit for - Especially for the duck rice. I also ordered their chicken rice on a separate visit, which was equally as delicious.
