Deep Fried Mushroom in Sweet and Sour Sauce

$7.00 · 2 Reviews

If you've eschewed going green because of the notorious prices tagged to healthy eating, then a visit to this popular Bukit Batok hawker stall may well change your mind. With prices averaging at a very pocket-friendly $4, Jing Yi Vegetarian makes going meatless affordable and more importantly, tasty. Burpple Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang highly recommends the Fried Dried Hor Fun ($4). The deceptively simple looking dish, which comes with just vegetables and a few slices of mock fishcake and mock meat, won her over with its smoky wok hei. The hor fun comes with eggs, so heed her advice to let the chef know if you'd like to go without. Other tasty eats include the Tom Yum Mee Soup ($5) with its punchy, tangy broth, the wet Hor Fun ($4) and the Deep Fried Mushroom in Sweet and Sour Sauce ($7). The latter sees a plateful of crunchy deep-fried oyster mushrooms, slicked in a coating of sticky sweet and sour sauce — wonderfully addictive and great to share. Pro tip: According to Wei Zhi, a 30-minute waiting time is common, especially on the first and 15th day of the lunar calendar.

A whole plate of crunchy deep fried oyster mushrooms in a coating of sticky sweet and sour sauce - these were was soooo addictive, especially the smaller bits of fried batter hidden underneath. They use a thicker batter here but the crunch that comes along with it redeems it all! I don’t usually go for sweet and sour items but this was nicely balanced and is one of my family's must orders.

Jing Yi is a popular vegetarian zi char style stall, so be prepared to wait, (we came at 5pm for dinner but the wait was still around half an hour) especially every 1st and 15th of the lunar calendar. Most vegetarian stalls in the area close by the evening, so this here is a great choice for late lunches and dinners. Prices are kind to the wallet too!
