Wang Jiao Vegetarian Food - Paya Lebar

This review will be a quick one purely for documentation sake.  Wang Jiao is a eggless vegetarian stall located at the famous block 14 Haig Road hawker centre.  Why is this hawker centre so famous?  Well, mainly for one particular stall - Haig Road Traditional Putu Piring.  In fact, this stall was also my primary reason for heading to this hawker.  For those unaware, putu piring is basically the Malay version of tutu kueh.  But instead of coconut/peanut as the filing, there is gula melaka.

Wang Jiao Vegetarian Food
Location: 14 Haig Road,  #01-35
Contact: None
Opening Hours: Daily 6.00am - 8.00pm.  Closed Wednesday.

Wang Jiao is run by one ah beng style uncle who is selling the typical vegetarian hawker dishes.  I admire the hard working nature of this uncle, who works an incredible 14 hours per day, with only one off day per week.  It is a pleasant surprise, considering how most vegetarian hawkers are KO-ed by 1pm.
First dish I sampled was the Fried Rice.  I must confess, 80% of the vegetarian hawker food I eat looks the same, tastes the same and costs the same.  So it is difficult for me to write in great detail about such trite tasting food.  I desperately crave to find another Chef Wai, cooks who actually venture outside of the box and display unique talent.  This fried rice had a little too much cabbage for my liking, but the flavour was acceptable.

Price: $3.00.     6/10
Next dish was the Hong Kong Noodle.  When I first ordered this dish, I recollected back to Miao Shan vegetarian at Serangoon, who do a brilliant Hong Kong noodle.  This dish had a bit too much cabbage once again.

Price: $3.00.     6/10

Conclusion - This stall is the only vegetarian eatery inside this hawker centre, so if you somehow find yourself in this vicinity then this stall will be your only option.  The food was not bad overall, but at the same time quite forgettable.  I was more captivated by the putu piring.
