Mongkok Eats: M Garden Vegetarian

This Thai assam fish is served with flames at the bottom to keep it warm. The ‘fish’ made of crispy bean curd skin wrapped with a thin layer of seaweed is deep fried so that its crispy on the edges and soft inside – my all time favorite mouth watering dish. The relatively spicy sweet and sour gravy is perfect with rice.

Truffle veggie spring rolls

Do not expect to be blown away by these truffle veggie spring rolls. Filled with cucumber and carrot slices, they are crispy and refreshing but tiny in portion and that special ingredient.

Eggplant hot pot

Eggplant lovers will be delighted with this braised tofu claypot. Recommended to eat with rice. Tasty!

sweet and sour pork ribs

A classic sweet and sour pork ribs stir fry with green peppers, pineapple, and tomatoes. Not bad.

Japanese rainbow udon bowl

This Japanese udon is one of the most colorful and visually appealing dish for the night. The ingredients – straw and shitake mushrooms, purple cabbage, bak choy, and carrot blanketed the udon noodles served in plain soup gravy.

Taro baked rice

The taro baked rice might not look as pretty as the previous udon noodles. But it’s so delicious I had 2 bowls of it. Simple but well done.

Chinese soup

Cantonese soup brewed with vegetarian meat, carrot chunks, and red beans. Tasty but not enough to go around for second helping.

Overall, expect that portion here will be small so order more dishes if some of your friends have big appetites. If you’re looking to catch up with a group of friends in Yau Ma Tei/ Mongkok area, M Garden is quite a good restaurant for Chinese – Japanese fusion food.
