Even we got there at 2pm, surprisingly, the restaurant consider quite full with few tables left. Lucky for us, we got reservation already! So advice to you, make your reservation first! 

Let's start the Prosperity Menu!

Idealite Restaurant - Lou Shang (风生水起)

Idealite Restaurant - Lou Shang (风生水起)
Starting with the Lou Shang, a dish that must have in Chinese New Year celebration menu. Seriously, this is THE BEST Lou Shang that I have ever had! Look at the ingredients, all are fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts! Torch ginger gives the flavor, sea bird nest added in the soft chewy texture, anchovies that made of seaweed bean curd offers the crunchiness and plum sauce that made of brown rice enzyme bring the whole dish appetizing! Compare to the usual Lou Shang with those crispy rainbow colored thing, this is a lot healthier! I definitely prefer this over the normal one!

Idealite Restaurant - Smooth and Happy Appetizer (欢乐满堂)
Looks real isn't it? In fact, most of it are made using different types of mushroom. Trust me, the "scallops", "muttons", "Pattaya salad" and "dumplings" are equally good to those non-vegetarian type!

Idealite Restaurant - Nourishing Soup (展翅高飞)
This is another dish that Idealite Wellness Restaurant surprised me with. I find it delicious despite all the ingredients are vegetarian. I just never thought that vegetarian could be that nice too! However, customers could choose with or without egg for this soup too while making the order.

Idealite Restaurant - Treasure Pot (招财纳福聚宝盆)
I believe most of you have tried the normal Phoon Choi countless time, but what about the vegetarian one? You have to try this! Even though without abalone, prawns, scallops, oysters, fish maws or sea cucumbers but their replacement are definitely equally good with the normal one.

Idealite Restaurant - Wealth & Prosperity Taro Fish (富贵有鱼)
Fish?! Looks like a real deep fried fish isn't it? Well, it's actually made of yam. The fish is fully handmade, crispy on the outside and soft filling of yam on the inside. Then topped with the sweet and sour gravy that makes it more appetizing!

Overall, the food at Idealite Wellness Restaurant are absolutely delightful. Personally, I always thought that vegetarian would be boring with those plain and simple dishes. But now, I am fully convinced by Idealite's creativity that vegetarian could be as delicious as the normal ones. 
My Top 3 Must Try would definitely be Lou Shang, Nourishing Soup and Treasure Pot. You just have to try it out yourself!

  1. I cannot understand why they must make their food look like fish or meat...like drumsticks, char siew, burger patties. In their minds, that would be what they think they're eating, no? Fish and meat? I love vegetarian...very nice, very healthy...but not cheap, especially when it's all organic, preservative free and all that.
