Vegan Food You Can Find At Uptown Damansara
I’m glad to find that more and more cafés are serving vegan options on their menu.
There seems to also be more vegetarian restaurants popping up—or is it just me?
Either way, I’m happy that it’s getting easier to find vegan food options in and around Kuala Lumpur.
Recently, I went to Uptown Damansara for the opening of Mieler Healthy Yogurt. They sell yoghurt drinks and offer several plant-based options.
While in the area, I also got to have lunch at V Kitchen and soy ice cream dessert at Soylab.
So if you’re at Uptown Damansara, here are the places you can get your vegan food fix.
Mieler Healthy Yogurt for Breakfast
I was invited to Mieler’s grand opening recently and got to try out one of their coconut-based yoghurt drink.
I had the Super Berry yoghurt with granola topping and it was super yummy! Not too sweet. Just nice. Worth a try!
Other flavours include Mango & Purple Rice, Strawberry, Oats and Dried Cranberries. Very fruity and healthy.
V Kitchen for Lunch or Dinner
I then went to V Kitchen, a vegetarian restaurant serving local dishes. I was craving curry so I had their Mee Curry. It did not disappoint. In fact, it surpassed my expectations. The curry was probably the best I’ve tasted as it was super creamy and thick. It was not too spicy either yet the mix of spices in the curry was spot on.
The price was very affordable and reasonable. Perhaps too generous but I think it’s fair. Most places are often overpriced, but not V Kitchen.
Soylab for Boba Drink or Dessert
Soylab is not entirely vegan even though their name contains the word “Soy”.
Some of their products contain milk or eggs, sadly. Their cones and soufflé aren’t vegan. But their soy boba and ice cream are dairy-free.
It was a hot day. So I decided to indulge in their soy ice cream with salted caramel sauce and raisin granola topping.
Be sure to ask them whether the sauce/topping is vegan-friendly or not.
More to Discover!
I think there’s a couple more vegetarian restaurants in the area based on Happy Cow – Sandalo and BMS Organics. I’ve yet to try the former. The latter is a healthy veg joint. Some don’t quite like the food there but for me, it’s good enough and convenient when there are no other options.
I hope that sometime in the near future, there would be at least one vegan café in each area. That would be nice.
For now, I’m happy with the existence of vegetarian cafés that serve vegan options.
