My usual hangout when I crave for Vegetarian Laksa is to visit Fo Guang Shan Temple.
I am not a Buddhist but I believe that anyone can enter the surrounds of this temple regardless of your faith. The temple has a Tea House (Water Drop Vegetarian Cafe) where an array of healthy vegetarian food, coffee and tea are served, a place to socialize amongst family and friends.
This temple is like no others. The air surrounding the huge temple and its garden is fresh unlike most Buddhist temples full of smoke from joss sticks and incense burning.
When I set foot in the gardens of Fo Guang Shan Temple, I am overwhelmed with the feeling of peace, tranquillity and serenity.
Clearly, from what I see numerous times I visited Water Drop Vegetarian Cafe, the Vegetarian laksa is the most popular dish. Our regular order is always the Vegetarian Laksa and often the Cheese Patty Rice. The laksa comes with a big portion of yellow noodles in thick and medium spiced soup. The Spring Roll entre is also one of our favourites.
Our spending is usually around $40 to $45 for two including drinks. Highly recommended, a nice cafe in the midst of a beautiful garden and often a chance to view art exhibitions too. Something really different from a regular cafe.
