was one of my favourite places to go.
|Curry rice! Carrot, potato , rice and mock meat|
Formosas offer's amazing variety of tea and vegetarian food from china (with a few Japanese dishes), but the thing that brings me back and back again DUMPLINGS!!!! and the prices. You can get 20-30 handmade dumplins for 9.99$. The portions are huge, the prices are some of the cheapest in the city, and the food is down right tasty.
They offer a variety of mock meat dishes that are vegan (some things like the mock drumsticks contain egg but thankfully the menu lists a lot of the ingredients): Red curry Mutton, sweet and sour vegan ribs, soup with vegan ham n vegetables, steam buns (only a few are vegan like red bean and bbq), to sushi which can be made vegan without mayo.
The owners are amazing and they also offer a giant menu of tea with free refills. It is one of those charming down home shops that I will be eating at forever. The have a great mix of herbal, green, oolong, and black teas. Ranging from traditional teas to flavored teas and everything in between. I usually get the caramel rooibos because it taste like those caramel bars but vegan. This time though we opted for a Kyoto Cherry Blossom green tea which was lovely. If you have never been I recommend getting the green tea to experience the traditional preparation and practice your tea inversions!
|Not picture is the large glass pot with the tea light to keep it warm.|
|Portions are generous!|
|I may have forgotten to photograph the mountain of dumplings because we were too busy eating this is maybe 1/4 of the full order.|
|Cold noodles: Noodles, carrot, cucumber, mock ground pork, with sesame oil sauce|
So if you are ever in HRM let me know and I will come have dumplings with you!
