Whole earth is one of those out-of-the-box restaurants that serve good, flavourful vegetarian food. Their monkey head mushrooms are most popular although we didn’t order it during this trip.
I’ve been to this restaurant near work a bunch of times but thanks to my Project 365, I had my ‘good’ camera handy last week when we went there for dinner.
They serve peanuts that are just rightly salted, a sweet-ish pickled fruit/vegetable which I think is pear, and vegetarian sambal with calamansi. The sambal is very strong and spicy. Awesome to munch on while you wait for the food.
Olive brown rice. Wonderfully flavourful and a must-have if you visit this place.
Tom Yam fried rice. I love this too. Its mildly spicy and has a lovely note of lemongrass in it.
Hong Kong fried noodles. Was okay, quite passable.
Assam Pedas or Mock fish curry. The mock fish in it looks remarkably like fish and the gravy is really unexplainable. It has a pretty strong flavour so all may not like it.
Thai Battered Oyster Mushroom – sin on a plate. Its deep fried, its super crisp and the sauce is wonderfully orange-y. I love it!
Eggplant with sataw or stinky beans. The beans are definitely ‘stinky’ and quite bitter so order this dish if you really like eggplant and sambal and don’t mind experimenting.
Yam ring. This is another deep fried dish that’s super crispy outside but the yam is very creamy and yummy. Every table in the restaurant had one order of this so a must-try, definitely.
Mushroom Rendang curry. I love rendang! It has wonderful notes of Kerala cuisine so I never pass by an opportunity to eat it. This was my favourite dish of them all. The mushroom had a texture very similar to chicken but the flavour definitely won’t put off a vegetarian. An absolute must must MUST try!
