Since its signage is not overly obvious,
this restaurant (hidden in a little alley amidst the
lush green residential area around the Culture Center)
is easy to miss. However, once you make it there, you're
sure to be greatly impressed by its style. As the name
suggests, My Style presents itself in a simple, low
key way--setting it apart from other vegetarian restaurants.
Apparently some customers didn't realize this was a
vegetarian restaurant until they actually dined here
because of this exact reason.
My Style is small but cleverly designed.
A huge variety of fresh ingredients, including vegetables,
fruit and mushrooms, are prepared using western cooking
methods. The restaurant insists on an "olive oil
only and no MSG" policy to present guests with
vegetarian dishes that are both healthy and tasty. Mixed
Grain Fried Rice with assorted vegetables (and a bit
of white rice) is a great choice during busy lunch hours.
It's light so it is perfect for those with sensitive
stomachs. As the summer heat can sometimes take away
your appetite, salads make for a good alternative. My
Style's salads are filled with generous portions of
seasonal fruit, lettuce, home-made honey yam and konjac
jelly. Another good choice is Chinese snacks with fruit
yogurt dressing, which is simple yet satisfying.
If you have a big appetite, you must
try the set course, including soup, bread, juice, a
main dish, salad bar, a beverage and Chinese-style healthy
desserts. Just looking at this meal makes your mouth
water. There is also a long list of pasta and lasagna
dishes to choose from. My Style is popular amongst vegetarians,
university students and those who prefer healthy and
light food. Next time, when you want to meet up with
your friends and try something different, you should
definitely come here.
