Yishensu - A Vegetarian Connoisseur @ 1 Utama Shopping Mall

All these while, i'm not a big fan of vegetarian food and of course i don't totally push it out of my life where i'll have it from time to time from a nearby vegetarian "zap fan" stall during lunch.

Anyways, the last time i have such a similar session was way back before Chinese New Year @ Kechara Oasis, Jaya One. Back then, I wouldn't say that it was impressive as i was a bit that disappointed.

Thanks to Ken, This time round, i joined a few familiar ones like Sidney & Sunny, Wilson with a few new faces from here and here. =D

It was on the 17th of May 2009. Hehehe.

and we were at Yishensu, a vegetarian restaurant @ 1Utama which have been around for a few years and their history can be traced back to the year 1965 where it was a family business that was started in Perak, specifically Ipoh & Kampar.

So now, we shall go to the food straight away!! Hehe.

We had a combination of a few regular dishes as our first plate. With the very tasty Cola Flavour Spare Rib - 4/5 at the middle of the plate, there were 3 other type of vegetarian food served

Golden Prawn Mayo 4/5

Shark Fin Egg 3/5

Cuttle Fish with Satay Sauce 3.5/5

The first plate with the mix of the few ones mentioned had me sitting down eating happily having a good impression on this very restaurant and at the same time being confused as the food tasted as if they were really prawn & cuttlefish & etc. =D

after that, we were served with a few selections of vegetarian food at one shot and i was spoilt with choices!

Fried Koay Teow 2/5

Alright before i go to the other dishes let me talk about this one single disappointment of the session. In my opinion the Fried Koay Teow isn't as nice as it looks and it is actually one of my favourite food so.... =(

Pineapple Fried Rice 3/5

and so lets talk about Pineapple Fried Rice, me likey the seaweed and the fake prawns actually with the cashew nuts and of course, the pineapple fried together with the other ingredients, Yummy!

Emperor Taufu 4/5 - RM16

I love this very dish for the main reason being because of the Taufu steamed with "minced meat" above with Siew Pak Choy as decoration on the sides, the soft and smooth Taufu which i still remember till today. Awesome!

Dried Curry Fish 3.5/5 - RM22

Don't be deceive by the name of the dish as it is filled with lotsa gravy but that doesn't mean its not good, its actually quite a tasty dish which includes the usual vege cooked with curry such as lady fingers, long beans and brinjals with the dry beancurd playing the role as fish. It was just nice, not too CURRY nor too less CURRY. Haha

Stir Fried Bean Sprout 4/5

This is a very simple dish cooked with carrots, corns and assorted mushrooms. Simple but delicious in my view, and its healthy as well!!

Teriyaki Vege Duck 4/5 - RM16

Oh this is very very very nice. "Man Tau", Chinese Steamed Bun were served and you must take the Teriyaki Duck with the bun which taste superbly nice. I was later told that it would be much more nicer if the slice of cucumber were added in between to add the crunchiness!! A must try dish!!

Mix Vege with Lotus Root 3.5/5 - RM16

A widely known dish among the vegetarian food goers, this is one common dish you can see in most places that serve vegetarian food. Couldn't get more of the lotus root, love it to bits i must say. =)

Yishensu Nasi Lemak 4.5/5 -RM9

Being a person who don't frequent places that serves vegetarian food, I don't expect seeing nasi lemak in its menu and i must say that the Curry Mutton taste really really delicious and i almost got deceived by its texture, taste and how it goes along with the rice. A must try dish if you love Nasi Lemak & Vegetarian food at the same time!!! Oh did i mention that the rice and sambal is good as well?

Chicken Chop 4/5 - RM20

Oh and i was shocked to see Chicken Chop in the menu as well. I'm so outdated Gosh. A similar look to the original ones out there in the market, the taste and texture is really close as well and i must say, those who processes and produces vegetarian food are genius, crazy!! Its quite tasty Hehe.

Vege Claypot Chicken Rice 4.5/5 - RM20

Last but not least, being one of the popular dish of the restaurant, this specific one didn't disappoint me and i was glad at the end of the day. Cooked with mushrooms and "chickens"...

this one claypot dish is not like the usual claypot dish out there where you can get that slight overcooked rice on the side and beneath so some might like it while some might love it. For me i enjoyed it pretty much!

Pumpkin & Sweet Corn 4/5

Sea Coconut 4/5

The dessert we had were small bowls of Pumpkin & Sweet Corn and Sea Coconut at RM4.80. I would say that i think that the bowl of Pumpkin & Sweet corn appears to be nicer than the later dessert. Nuff said.

and so, that was food review session @ Yishensu. A vegetarian place where i would recommend and in my opinion serves better vegetarian food than Kechara Oasis. =D
