How many of you will turn down a review or when a friend ask you to eat vegetarian or organic food? For me, I its a new discovery, cuz often on the month of Nine Emperor festival its very hard for me to locate nice organic or vegetarian place in KL as not as widely celebrated compare to Penang whereby alot of vegetarian stalls are set up every where. Chef Lim Organic Kitchen.
[Update Jan 2014: close Down]
Nevertheless, I had the opportunity to visit Chef Lim Organic Kicthen, and how to turn down? I am a food lover in many ways as I always enjoy my meal and learn to eat and dine accordingly. As fore say by many people, organic and vegetarian food will head towards very mild or near tasteless food as one of the reason its healthy food. Never meant to be alot of taste, eat light and simple.
Chef Llim Organic Kitchen open its door to public since last year September 2011 at The Scots Garden, Old Klang Road and it had starting to gain popularity among organic lover and slowly public are accepting the taste of it after learning the way to eat it and the benefits of eating healthy.
A place that well lit up with some English interior to be spill upon.
Many people have the perception that organic food would be expensive including myself too. When I see the price of the menu and what is being offered I find it very reasonable.
One of the reason that Chef Lim Organic Kitchen gaining its popularity among many vegetarian and monks are the fundamentals, freshness and healthiness are assured, long serving PURE vegetarian food where no egg and “five pungent spices” eg: garlic, onion, chives, spring onion and leek is used in food preparing.
Fruit Tea (Large) @ RM17.90 with a few types of fresh fruit being cut and blend then serve warm is something new to me. As mention by the chef is good for digestion and alot of customer prefer it hot. They do serve cold too . . Love the taste of it~
Brown rice @ RM2.00 per bowl that I often take during my meals on vegetarian. Surely it taste very bland and not aromatic as those white rice often eat at home.
Cukawamee @ RM6.90, one of the reason its green colour that many people ask and thought its colouring but its not. Its the effect of being soaked in sugar syrup and the duration makes it green.
Golden Beancurd – Large @ RM18.90 – beancurd that mixed with pumpkin, and ridge gourd
something unique in the soup that add on some extra flavour is this dish . .Coconut Tomyam @ RM17.90
Herbal Mushroom Soup – Large @ RM18.90
One of my favourite is this Basil Leaf Mushroom – Large @ RM18.90 that had been stir fried till the flavours blend in pretty well . .
Another of my favorited is Kapitan Fish – Small @ RM14.90 that is well cook with the gravy is just perfect, not too spicy yet hint of sour at the end of the taste, clever to use eggplant, ladies finger and some other vegetable to make this curry mixture out.
Yam Basket @ RM18.90
Lo Han Chai @ Large @ RM19.90
Kam Heong Mushroom – Large @ RM18.90 as mushroom had been carefully slices and deep fried first then follow by pan friend with kam heong till all the aroma blend well. Some of you might not like the taste yet the crispiness is there.
Very seldom you will see organic food preparing Italian food because of the ingredient involve yet this caught us by surprise that their Classic Cabonara @ RM14.90 turns out to be good too, with a bit milky creamy texture, spaghetti is springy.
This would be one of my highly recommended dish for organic or vegetarian as Fruit Pizza @ RM19.90 being baked to perfection with its slight thin crust of every bite with crips, dressing on top just match the taste of the fruits being finely cut and added on. One of their top seller.
Hawaiian Pizza @ RM21.90 topped with capsicum, tomato and pineapple.
One of the reason their pizza turns out to be top seller as the cheeze being carefulyl source and imported from Australia and it turns out to be cheezy awesome!
Craving for meat then Grill Beef Steak might be one of your selection as again, being well deep fried and special ingredient from the chef to make the texture taste good! @ RM22.90
You will be surprise on the taste that how the chef did this desert without egg and milk. Mango pudding @ RM5.90
This is what happens when there are 2 groups of people, as all being the guys are being busy by capturing all those nice food and as for the girls are all on a table to discuss on recent issue. . :p
If you are ask me where to get nice organic food, this restaurant certainly now being added into one of my recommended list.
For the dishes that had been cook out, I am totally impress by the chef little experience and most definately is because he is super young to be able to cook this kind of organic meal out!
Remark: please do note that this place is not suitable for people who have strong taste bud as you will find this place near tasteless, for vegetarian and organic lover, this place would be a recommended restaurant!
*quite surprise that they are HALAL outlet!
