Peony Jade Restaurant

Posted by icyelite on July 27, 2008

I went to attend my cousin’s ROM reception at Peony Jade Restaurant. He had specially ordered a table of pure vegetarian food for us prepared by Peony Jade Restaurant. Pure vegetarian meaning no onion, no garlic, no alcohol in the food and the cutlery used to cook our food is separate from those that has been used to cook meat.

Having a wedding lunch reception prepared by Peony Jade, I would expect that the food weren’t be as nice. After attending several wedding dinners at different hotels, it leaves me an impression that the foods prepared by non-vegetarians chefs are not as nice as real vegetarian chefs. However, Peony Jade changes my mindset that day.

What’s in the list for the vegetarian menu?

  1. Vegetarian Combination Delight
  2. Braised Fungus & Golden Mushroom Soup
  3. Pan-Fried Vegetarian Cod Fish with Soya Sauce
  4. Deep Fried Chicken with Fruit Sauce
  5. Stewed Vegetarian Abalone & Bailing Mushroom
  6. Stir-Fried Vegetarian Venison with Black Pepper Sauce
  7. Sauteed Vegetarian Prawns with Special Sauce
  8. Fried Empress Noodles with Vegetarian Goose
  9. Chilled Mango with Pomelo Sauce
Braised Fungus & Golden Mushroom Soup

One of the recommended dish from above is Braised Fungus & Golden Mushroom Soup which is commonly known as Shark Fin Soup.  The main ingredients are white fungus, golden mushroom and water chestnuts. Instead of cutting the ingredients into stripes like a shark fin, they diced it into very small pieces. Chewy and tasty soup.

Another recommended dish is their dessert. The dessert is chilled mango with pomelo sauce. It’s a thick mango puree with pomelo and abit of pomelo sauce. This is unlike other places where I had tried before, it is very watery and the pomelo sauce is too much that I find it sour. That day, the dessert is served cold that makes you shivers abit when you put inside your mouth. In addition, it tastes sweet instead of sour.

Yum yum delicious food. One of the cons is the dishes served does not have vegetables at all. All are mock meats. I wasn’t able to take picture of the food this time because a plate of food is shared by everyone instead of served individually, it will be rude of me to take picture before everyone can start eating.

The utensils used are also different from what I had usually see. The shapes of the plates and the unique colors of the plates. In addition, they are using a pebble as a stand for the chopsticks.
