Carnivores will not feel left out here at Sun Vegetarian Cuisine (善), the colorful rolls packed with fruits and vegetables are convincing enough to please any diners. The vegetarian restaurant at Bay Avenue (near Queensbay Mall) serves an extensive Japanese-inspired Vegetarian menu, noticeable-ones include the range of Sushi Rolls, Japanese Steamboat, Noodle and Rice dishes. The menu is of course an expansion from the casual-classic Vegetarian food; the setting is classier as well... fully air-conditioned with proper chairs and tables. Though slightly more expensive than many vegetarian places in Penang, Sun Vegetarian Cuisine impressed us with its superior quality... definitely one of my top choices when it comes to vegetarian food.
Forest Volcanic Uramaki (Rm 21.90)
Sesame Cold Udon (Rm 16.90)
Italiano Quinoa Salad (Rm 29.90)
Cream of Pumpkin (Rm 7.90)
Sun's signature Sushi Roll- Forest Volcanic Uramaki is served with a splash of creamy, rich sauce with a hint of spiciness. Though the Sushi Roll was of standard-average, we enjoyed the creamy, sweet sauce and thought it blended well with the rolls. Sesame Cold Udon was equally delicious, carefully cooked Udon lightly dressed in Sesame Paste and served with a handful of fresh vegetables. The concoction feels light and easy on the palate; the chewy Udon and crunchy vegetables were of nice contrast in texture, for Rm 16.90, we thought it was of good value.
Italiano Quinoa Salad did not disappoint but the flavor was rather bold to our liking. For Rm 29.90, we thought the serving portion did not quite well-justify the price. Also, we would prefer more Quinoa, probably a mere 1-2 tablespoons of Quinoa in this dish.
