Review

LingZhi dispels the common perception of vegetarian food being overly starchy and made of fried gluten—the majority of the dishes here are anything but. The manager explains that the restaurant is trying to recreate regular Chinese dishes with vegetarian ingredients—the new menu features the likes of crispy rice cakes with Singapore-style chilli sauce, vegetarian satay with fresh pineapple and vegetarian goose, and crispy tofu skin with pancake. The chilli sauce for the rice cakes is mildly spicy and piquant, and is similar to that used in the chilli crab at local seafood joints. The peanut sauce is well-concocted, bearing a close resemblance to that eaten with meat-based satays; a tinge of pineapple purée adds a refreshing touch to the sauce. Taking reference from Peking duck, the crispy tofu skin represents the meat in that dish, wrapped in regular flour pancakes.
