Priceless Heart and Soul Food @ Kong Meng San Phor Kark See ...

These simple temple foods are from the gigantic kitchen at Kong Meng San Phor Kark See and provided free to locals and tourists who visit the temple with the help from the selfless volunteers.
As Buddha taught of respecting life and to maintain long term peace, Vegetarianism has become part of the Buddhist Culture. In any event related to Buddhism, vegetarian food would be the choice if food is necessary. 
Vegetarian fare is gaining more popular as more new perspectives are being shared. Lead to more meat-eaters including more vegetarian meals in their diet and not just on 1st or 15th of the lunar calendar (Buddhist do not have to be a vegetarian, but they do appreciate the beauty of vegetarian cuisine).

free fruit salad with mayo sauce 
At Kong Meng San Phor Kark See, free soupy noodle is either rice vermicelli or noodle or instant noodle whipped up just like "Trishaw Noodles". Very simple and the ingredients can be veggies or canned food or anything but surprisingly, it always turn out to be quite delicious and lots love to queue up just for a small bowl.
The price - priceless as it is FREE.  In appreciation, one can pay it forward via donations.

Hi Sunny,

Agree :) It is really a surprise, I even found baked bean in it before, yet it still tastes good and the combination still go well. If we are lucky, wow, there can be many different ingredients hidden below.

Might be the positive vibe or energy in the temple :D

Cheers :)
