Kang Le Vegetarian Food - Serangoon
Kang Le Vegetarian Food
Location: Level 6 Canteen, 6 Serangoon North Avenue 5 (Mapletree Industrial Property)
Opening Hours: Mon-Fri 6.00am-6.00pm. Weekends Closed.
Dishes that are available. I especially loved the way the auntie cooked the bittergourd. It was sliced thinly, and looked super fresh. Moreover, it was combined with black bean, which is really a flavour match made in heaven. The curry mock meat and potatoes were both coated in very nice sauces, it was only the long beans that I found to be lacking in aroma. Really tasty and good quality dishes overall though.
Price: $2.50. 7/10
Bak Kut Teh. I was chatting with Henry Wang recently about the cost of Chinese herbs sky rocketing recently in Singapore. Due to that reason, dishes like bak kut teh now seldom have the wide range and depth in flavour, due to cutting corners on herbs. This bak kut teh had a clean taste, but didn't have the potency and depth that a well made bak kut teh soup would have. I did like the mushroom derived mock meat and the floating Chinese celery (one of my favourite ingredients), but the soup flavour could definitely be improved upon. This dish is additionally served with brown rice and fried beancurd.
Price: $3.00. 6/10
Conclusion - Those who work in and around the Mapletree building should certainly consider themselves lucky to have such a nice little vegetarian stall available to them. Due to the location and opening times, I doubt this will attract many of my readers to make the journey to visit this stall - But if you do, the fresh dishes are well worth it.
