Grand Vege Creative Restaurant @ Abu Siti Lane, Georgetown, Penang.

Vegetarian meal is more than just dull pile of leafy greens and raw vegetables, a plant-based meal can be equally exciting as a normal meal. Grand Vege is a good testament to this statement, the plant-based restaurant has an unusual vegetable-forward menu with many new, inventive and perhaps, a little playful creations. Though the menu is not too big, their dishes are carefully designed. Price points are on the higher side and the serving portion might be small for those with big appetite but if you are keen to explore how far can a vegetarian meal go, you should put this place on your radar. 

Petai Kunbu Pho (Rm 16.90)

Mala Dry Pot with Glass Noodles (Rm 17.90)

Special Yuba Rolls (Rm 8.90)

Mix Sushi- Mango Sushi and Crunchy Sushi (Rm 18.90)

One of the more unusual dishes- Petai Kunbu Pho sees a mixture of Petai and Kunbu (Kelp) with a little Pineapple to spice things up. We were afraid that the Petai may steal the show due to its strong, pungent nature but to our surprise, it was subtle but discernible. The Kunbu introduced a sleek essence of the sea to the dish while the Pineapple offers some soothing acidity, the flavor combo was quite complex but definitely something that can be acceptable by most diners. The choice of using Pho was a great idea... perfectly soak up the concoction but not overly slouchy. The Mala Hot Pot with Glass Noodles were great but the flavors were not as fired up as compared to the real thing. The smoky Chili flavor was there though. We also enjoyed their Sushi, mix and match is allowed but we can't say they are value for money for the portion.
