Delicious vegetarian with rice @ Sweet Root Vegetarian Restaurant

Image Hosted by PicturePush - Photo Sharing
This is probably my third or fourth visit to this restaurant which has won the hearts of my family members, with their variety, good tasting food and reasonable prices.

Instead of the usual dishes we order to share, we tried their ala carte individual rice sets, priced at RM5-9 per set and they were good, yeah, I liked it :)

I am a vegetarian food lover, really, something that I can't live without having it once in a while:)
(I am sure you noticed it from the number of vegetarian posts that pop up once in a while, or sometimes quite frequently too!)

(I heard the vegetarian lovers/bloggers/readers saying, "Ah, finally, a vegetarian post again....too much seafood stuffs! :p )

Assam Fish with rice

Assam is a type of sourish and spicy soup made with tamarind juice and seriously, my favorite with fish or almost anything:)
I love the okra and long beans, perfect company!
The vegetarian mock fish is made of soy sheets and seaweed.

Sweet and sour vegetarian pork ribs

Awesome taste with the rich sauce, with light touch of cornstarch and the pineapples, my favorites!:)

Really great taste, trust me!;)

Mummy saw someone having the vegetarian claypot chicken rice, and she just simply had to have one!

For the first time, Mummy ordered the most expensive set amongst us (she's always a saver, and we loved her for that:)

It tasted good, no disappointment, and although it was higher in price compared to our normal rice sets, it was because of the portion it came in.

Something lighter and non-spicy, compared to most of the dishes above, but still a good one.

Bittergourd with chicken rice

Of all, I didn't really taste this as I am not a fan of bittergourd, seriously!
It looked good (ignoring the bittergourd), and I am sure it tasted good too (ignoring the bittergourd again) :p

Maybe someday, I will learn to try the bittergourd...or, maybe that can wait...yeah, someday :p

I like the food and the environment here, and the reasonable pricing and my love for vegetarian food will definitely see me returning for more!~


  1. Everything looks so delicious only to be enhanced by your excellent photograpy

  2. Hey.
    I love your site. Finding good vegetarian recipes can be difficult. My page on healthy vegetable recipes could do with a few good vegetarian recipes. Most are simple side dishes though. You have inspired me... Thank you

  3. Haha, bad idea to check out this site - it always makes me hungry, even though I just came back from lunch!

    I too love vegetarian food. I know many people who think that a meal is not a meal unless it has some sort of meat in it, but I think people in general eat way too much meat. It's not good for our bodies or the environment. Having a mother who is vegetarian I was raised on a variety of different dishes and it always makes me sad because so many restaurants just don't cater to vegetarians at all!

  4. Ohhh I miss vegetarian food! We am staying/ working has no sign of vegetarian restaurant. Hope I can visit this restaurant soon! Thanks for the recommendation!
