DINNER @ DATONG VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT, JALAN DATUK WEE KHENG CHIANG, KUCHING

Faux Shark's Fin Soup

If not for its name, you'd be hard pressed to identify the dish that you consume here; they look like meat, taste like meat (for the undiscerning ones), but they are not all they seem. They are mostly glutton made to fool the eyes and the taste buds - I think it defeats the whole purpose of sacrificing now for a better after-life or something along that line...

Fried Fish Cutlets

Braised Abalone

Fried Midin (The Real McCoy)

Braised Stuffed Mushrooms

... anyway the lady who runs the place was adamant about us taking the banquet package (about RM280 for 7 dishes), but I didn't bite 'cos there were only 8 of us, nibblers! So I pre-ordered 5 dishes from the ala carte menu without finalizing the price. I was given a hint of the pricey shark's fin - even more expensive than the real thing, I was told... if that is the case people are better off making the make-believe stuff than slaughtering sharks for their fins. At the end of the dinner, the bill came to RM250! The lady tried to convince us the meal was regarded as a banquet kind. Go figure! Can't say "Never again" 'cos it's one of the few decent vegetarian places in town, and where can you turn to for reciprocal dinner for vegetarians?

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
