... ais kacang, vegetarian style. Not sure if other ais kacang out there were different, maybe vegetarian realism might insist on the different kind of milk being used here.

The ais kacang I had tasted pretty much the same as those you can find outside. Maybe I wasn’t good enough in distinguishing the differences in the ingredient used, especially the milk. I’d say it tasted rather good though the shaved ice wasn’t fine enough. My fried kuey teow was more like fried hor fun (flat noodle) instead. Those flat noodle used in wat tan hor (滑蛋河). Anyway, despite being vegetarian, I’ve had worse non-vegetarian fried kuey teow before. So there isn’t really much to complain about for a healthier counterpart.

I had a taste of ALGJ’s vegetarian BBQ pork. It tasted the same as the kind of vegetarian BBQ pork I had the first time. I figure the vegetarian food don’t evolve much but rather got innovative over time. The seaweed soup was quite nice with sourish soup base. Though it was a tad too salty. Finally, the milk butter prawns that I ordered out of curiosity. It tasted quite nice, thought not exactly the same, but the artificial prawns had quite similar texture as the real deal. The outer layer was probably coated in crushed peanuts. Pretty cool.

I was pretty amazed with all the innovative vegetarian dishes nowadays. Unlike back in the olden days, there were only vegetarian BBQ pork and vegetarian roasted goose to satisfy the cravings for meat.
