Roma’s Deli

Roma’s Deli is located in Shaw Towers directly opposite Ah Loy Thai. Its hidden from view and I believe it is outshone by its neighbour opposite (Ah Loy Thai) . I know about this place because my friend is a vegetarian. This place serves good vegetarian food. If not for my friend, I will not have known of this place. This is my 3rd or 4th visit.

Decided to order the set dinner which comes with soup, your choice of spaghetti and drinks. Ordered Cheese Mushroom Spaghetti Set Dinner  with Orange Juice, $10.50. The set dinner is available from 3pm to 830pm. During lunch time, there is set lunch too.

Mushroom Soup

The mushroom soup was delicious! It was a large plate, the soup was tasty,thick with the fragrance of mushroom. It is not those from Cans such as Campbell. My friend who was with me felt full after drinking it!

Garlic Bread

The garlic bread was hard and taste nothing like garlic bread =(

Cheese Mushroom Spaghetti

Does not look appetising right? Well, this picture can be deceiving. I do not know why its called cheese mushroom as there was no hint of cheese. I was glad as I was afraid if it would be too cheesy and I would get sick of it after a few mouthful. The mushroom surprisingly was button mushroom which you can get from cans. I wish more slices of button mushroom was given. The red colour was tomato, initially thought was carrot. Overall, looks like more ingredients should be added right?

My comment of this dish so far might look negative, but thats for  the appearance department. But in terms of taste department, I love it. Its tasty and you do not get sick of it after a few m0uthful.

Orange Juice

Hmmm, just a normal orange juice =)

Dinner-time Menu

Does this place even looks like a vegetarian outlet? It looks like some high class, western dinning area! Do take note, there is limited seats, so if you are coming with a big group, its unlikely you are going to get any seats. Even if it is just two person, it is hard to find a space during dinner time. When we left at 645pm, the place was full. Certainty one of the rare few places which serves good quality vegetarian food! I will certainty be back to try the other dishes.

Ah Loy Thai (Shaw Towers)

Had heard so much about this place for its Thai food. At last I get to try it.It was crowded on a weekday lunch time. Luckily, had no problem finding a place. The bottleneck was waiting for food. Waited 35-40 minutes for the food.

Green Curry (Soup) $6.00

The Green Curry was good. It was not overwhelmed in the taste department with coconut. It was not very spicy and the spices complemented with the coconut. Inside, there are slices of fish balls and chunks of chicken. Fish ball was average. The chicken was soft and tender. A bit disappointed with the lack of ingredients. But this soup was shiokolicious.

Tom Yam Soup $5.50

Not a clear picture. This is so much more value for money compared to Green Curry. Its cheaper than Green Curry and yet its ingredients was much much more. Ingredients include around 3 prawns and generous servings of mushrooms and squids. It is slightly more spicy than the green curry. It had a good balance between the spiciness and sourness.

Rice $0.60

These soups are best accompanied by rice of course. Wished that more portion of rice was given.

Too hungry to take a picture of Phad Thai. I would recommend this dish. Its actually kway teow fried with seafood, fried egg and bean sprouts. It comes along with grinned peanut and lime for you to add to further enhance the taste.

As for the drinks, they were a disappointment. The drinks were just too sweet. The food was good, price was reasonable. However, drinks and waiting time was a disappointment. But I would say the food is definitely worth the wait.
