Vegetarian Lasek Lemak

S$2.50 / plate (He Xi Restaurant every Tuesday)


This malay specialty though is a vegetarian style is quite delicious too.

The greenish favour rice cooked with Pandan leaf and coconut milk enrich the fragrant into a higher level.

Though lack of fried chicken wings, fish etc, the mock fish slice and mock meat slice may not have the real tendancy, but acceptable.

Mock Ikan Bilis with cruching nuts added more local delicancy feel.

The best of all, the red chilly sauce, spicy and sweet, add up to the taste bug!

Overall, this dish is above average for a vegetarian.


Mee Rebus @ He Xi Restaurant

  S$2.50 / Plate

Every Thursday, He Xi Restaurant will have their fixed Malay cuisine – Mee Rebus up on the shelve.


Prior eating, I like to sqeeze a small lime “around” the noodle and saurce to give it a little “sour” taste.

The “starchy” spicy gravy fits well with the yellow noodle.


Scatter with bits of nut and fresh bean sprouts to give the dish the cruching taste.

Normally used egg we sees is replaced by vegetarian style of fried beancurd.

However, the taste remain, overall it was good.
