Time Out says
Fortune Centre is home to many vegetarian eateries, which to the uninitiated, can be overwhelming to say the least. But ask any regular (or us here at the Time Out team), and most would direct you to Vege Pot – a small restaurant tucked away in a corner unit on the second floor. Stepping in feels like entering someone’s kitchen, with plastic-covered tables, mismatched cupboards, and a warm greeting from the owners.
In the mood for greens? The thunder tea rice is an obvious, healthy choice, providing a medley of veggies alongside a pale green broth made from herbs that's mintier than most we’ve tried. But more outstanding are the dishes where vegetables are used in covert and interesting ways. Try the unagi ($5.50); it tastes and looks nothing like Japanese grilled eel, but the salty crunch from the seaweed and drizzle of tangy barbecue sauce makes it an enjoyable appetiser nonetheless.
We also like sweet vinegar with monkey mushroom ($6), its acidic broth tempered by the sugar. Chunks of beancurd, lotus root, and king oyster mushroom also lend crunch and texture. Spice lovers should try the sambal tempeh ($6.50). It packs well-rounded heat despite the absence of shrimp paste. Even the drinks selection are infused with unusual ingredients like the homemade pumpkin chrysanthemum ($2.20) and brown rice coffee ($2).
