Vegan, vegetarian or are you some other kind of pain in the butt in the big fishy city of Kuala Lumpur? Can’t find anything to eat besides green or mixed veggies and garlic? Then you must visit Woods Bio Marche Restaurant in the tourist driven area, Bukit Bintan, for macrobiotic food.
The restaurant is immaculate, with orderly tables and chairs and a neat shelf at the entrance with a variety of organic and dairy free products for sale.
The service was outstanding and the waiter speaks English very well. The food was bought to our table gracefully, and with a smile.
The menu was extraordinary compared to every other menu we had seen in Malaysia so far. The choices are perhaps slightly comparable to Yong’s Green Food in Brunswick, Melbourne.
For entree the cabbage soup was very enjoyable, with tasty bits of shredded soy, imitating chicken, floating in the divine broth.
My long time good friend’s entree of satay skewers were also to die for, made from hand- minced shiitake mushroom and complimented by a crunchy peanut herb dipping sauce.
My entree of Japanese influenced steamed tuba rolls with veggie filling and lime sauce entree was sweet and faultless, cost RM 15.90.
Our main dishes arrived shortly after our entrees, my ‘de-stress’ Bento box was both nutritious and delicious. Included in the boy’s compartments was sweet potato salad, a shiitake mushroom steak with vegan mayonnaise, friend rice with tofu, scrambled tofu and pickled vegetables. Every compartment was filled with something wonderful, this dish was faultless.
I also got the opportunity to take a bite of juicy, wholesome burger, which was made from a patty of lentils, salad, vegan mayonnaise and a whole wheat soft bun.
The second time we came here for lunch and got the brown rice vermicelli noodles with mixed vegetable, shiitake mushroom steak with soy mayo and the spring rolls. All meals were delightful.
I recommend Woods Bio Marche to vegetarians looking for nutritional vegetarian food in a peaceful environment, who are prepared to pay more than the cost of greasy fried white rice and fish sauce vegetables in the streets of. Kuala Lumpur.
