Take Vege Vegetarian Garden - Ang Mo Kio
Take Vege Vegetarian Garden
Location: #01-1881, Blk 332 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1
Opening Hours: Daily 9.00am-3.00pm & 5.00pm-9.00pm
Chicken Fried Hand Made Noodles. As the noodles were handmade, the quality and texture was excellent. However, I found this dish diferred greatly from what it looked like in the picture. Especially in terms of the mock meat. The picture showed several slices of mock chicken resting on top of the noodles. In reality, the mock meat barely existed at all. Having said that, the portion size is still pretty generous for just four bucks.
Price: $4.00. 7/10
Monkey Head Mushrooms. What this dish lacks for in terms of name originality, it makes up for in presentation and taste. The dish is beautifully presented, causing droplets of drool to almost slide out of the corners of my mouth. The vegetables were fresh and crunchy, and the monkeyhead mushroom was juicy and chewy. The sauce was mild, but matched well with the ingredients. The biggest downside is the price - It is a small portion, and rightfully should be reduced by at least two dollars in price.
Price: $10.00. 6/10
Conclusion - With a menu this size, it is difficult for myself as a food reviewer to get an accurate gague on just how good or bad Take Vege is, as I only sampled two dishes. This is an eatery which would require several visits, in order to get a more accurate opinion. Out of the two dishes I tried, it definitely seems like a promising place.
