TURNING VEGETARIAN ON MOTHERS’ DAY

This year’s Mothers’ Day, my family and I have decided to go to someplace out of the norm to celebrate this wonderful day with my Mum. We went for a vegetarian buffet, something that most of us have not heard of. I can tell you it’s a new experience, even for me. We went to Lily’s Vegetarian Kitchen, located at 98 (Ground Floor & 1st Floor), Noble House, Lorong Madras, 10400 Penang. Telefax: 604-226 3810. Opening Hours: 8.30am until 9.30pm daily. Closed on Monday except 1st & 15th of the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

They served different types of vegetarian food such as hawker, Oriental and Western. Desserts too comes in different varieties. Buffet is only held on either the 2nd or the 3rd Sunday of each month. It's only RM20 per person. So, if you have plans of trying out the wide spread of goodies, make sure you call up and make a reservation as the place is damn packed during buffet session. After reservation is done, be there punctual by 12 noon to avoid fighting amongst “vultures”…LOL.

Here are some of the goodies I have taken during the buffet.

Impressive right? If you do not look closely, I doubt you know that everything is vegetarian. Feel free to drop by the shop for a new experience.
