I was raised in a slaughter house where we would eat kilos of meat at each meal, so it does take some convincing to get me to dine at a vegetarian restaurant. Surprisingly I loved what we ordered and would gladly go back. Yulli’s entire menu is vegetarian with a few vegan options here and there.
Dumpling San Choy bow, $13.50
A vegetarian take on the very famous pork San Choy bow. Instead of typical pork ingredients, it was filled with peanuts and onions. It was savory with a slight hint of sweetness from the caramelized onions inside. Sago casing was fairly firm and slightly chewy but still maintained its softness from the steaming process.
Delicious dumpling balls each placed on a lettuce leaf and garnished with fried garlic. I loved this as it has two of my favorite things, garlic and onion! This is also why nobody wants to kiss me because of scary onion breath.
Pot Pie, $18.50
A twist on traditional pot pie and massamun curry, mild curry with chick peas, pumpkin, eggplant and carrots. Covered with a thick crunchy pastry and a scoop of sweet mash on top. It looks small, but it actually very filling with all the beans and veg.
Panang Pizza, $18.50
The toppings included sweet potato, eggplant, zucchini and baby corn. The sauce was a little bland and there wasn’t enough so it made the pizza really dry. The base was disappointing to me as it wasn’t doughy enough. I enjoy deep dish pizzas and this was more airy like foccacia or Turkish bread.
Getting a table here took a while, I blame it on me looking like a 12 year old and it does take extra time for wait staff to take notice. The serivce here is quite pleasant though, they’re friendly and approachable with smiles all throughout the night. It does get busy but they do have extra seats in the courtyard and on the walk path out the front.
