We are very often juggling to manage a long list of tasks each day and so we sometimes leave ourselves to choose fast food for the sake of convenience during the week. So it is important to treat yourself to a healthy meal whenever you can, especially on weekends.
Conveniently located on Pitt Street in the city, you'll find Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen, which would be a great choice for you to enjoy good and healthy food.
Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen is located on Pitt Street
Run by the Taiwanese Chu family, Mother Chu's is a long-established vegetarian restaurant serving tasty and nutritious menu at affordable prices. I have eaten at the restaurant for a number of times, and I have never been disappointed as the quality of their food is simply consistent all the time. Additionally, no MSG is added in the food.
Dotted around the interior, you'll find touches of Chinese culture; a big signage for the Chinese restaurant name, a few paintings in Chinese calligraphy and the Chinese lanterns. The ambience is warm and cosy, making you feel like you are eating at home.
Since their menu shows the photos of the dishes, it is pretty handy for you to pick the one you like. While you can't eat a real fish or a Peking Duck, however, the chef can prepare the dishes in a way that look like them in shape and colour. I have tried their signature dishes, such as vegetarian Peking Duck, crispy bean curb (tofu), crispy noodle nest and more. They will surely whet your appetite.
In my recent visit, I tried out the steamed dim sim and the fried noodle with mushrooms as main ingredients. The food was lovely and delicious.
If you are planning to watch a movie with your friends or family, there is a cinema on George Street, which is parellel to the restaurant. Since the food is served fairly quickly at the restaurant, you and your friends can come over the restaurant for a meal either before or after watching the movie.
