Fo Guang Shan has one of the best vegetarian (simulated meat) noodles and Taiwanese fruit teas in the GTA! Their price point is very fair considering the quality you are getting. Everything is $5 per dish (noodle, sandwich, coffee or tea). Remember to purchase your coupon at the service counter when you walk into the temple.
• Noodle Soups – Red Beef Noodle Soup or Laksa Noodle Soup
• Fruit Teas – Black Forest Tea or Tangerine Tea
