Two days ago, my wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal at Xiang Yun Vegetarian Delight, a restaurant at Vantage in Tanjong Tokong, Penang.

Among the items we tried include the Blackpepper Chicken, Supreme Carbonara and Salsa Cutlet. Everything was incredibly tasty, but there's a catch: none of the items contain any animal products. Xiang Yun is an entirely vegetarian restaurant, and it is at the forefront of helping meat lovers graduate into a vegetarian diet. At Xiang Yun, we got to enjoy vegetarian dishes that creatively mimics the texture of non-vegetarian items. Though I consider myself omnivorous, it was a lot of fun for me to enjoy these beautiful - and yes, tasty - vegetarian dishes. You can hardly tell the difference. And furthermore, you are enjoying a clearly healthy option here.

Our host was the proprietor, Mr EK Khor. In addition to the aforementioned items, we also had the Mushroom Soup and Golden Crunchy Mushroom. The Mushroom Soup was made without any milk, and yet it was so creamy. The Golden Crunchy Mushroom, I would not have guessed was mushroom. The outer layer was indeed crunchy, and could have passed for pieces of chicken chop.

Of all the items we tried, I think the one I liked the most was the Blackpepper Chicken. There's no real chicken here, of course, but the texture of the "fake" chicken was incredible. I simply loved it.
