As a fellow vegetable lover, I could never relate to friends who are hype up the best steak in town, or where is the nicest place to have tender lamb chops.
If you enjoy healthy living and want to enjoy a nice meal that isn’t limited to just salads, juice blends, and sushi, here are some of the city’s vegan-friendly restaurants you can visit.
1. Simple Life
This is number one on our list because it has several outlets, making it accessible for everyone not just those in the capital city. They also follow a “four core principles of healthy eating” guide to prepare wholesome dishes that have less sugar, salt, and oil. The owner – Madam Tracy Ngo – is also an author of three organic recipe books, so you can definitely count on her to make quality vegetarian dishes that will your tummy up real good.
2. Salad Atelier
You can’t escape good ol’ salad, so what’s better than a veggie bowl than a customised veggie bowl right? What I personally like about Salad Atelier is the variety of portions you can choose from: Baby Salad, Adult Salad (my favourite), and Monster Salad, to ensure you stay full. That’s not just it, their wraps, sandwiches, and lastly, the restaurant’s unique salad jars – love jar, skinny jar, beauty jar – makes this salad bar different than the rest.
3. Ashley’s by LivingFood
Ashley’s is the place to go for a nice gathering with friends, thanks to its accessible location. Right in the middle of Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, Ashely’s provides a vegetarian menu option that serve plates of insta-worthy shots that are both great on the eyes and stomach. What you get isn’t typical “health food” but an array of solid dishes like vegan Borneo Laksa, Eggs Benny-fit, and Living Enchilada. If that sounds yummy to you, hit them up now.
4. WTF – What Tasty Food
Not only is the name super memorable, it’s also really easy to look for if you’re familiar with Bangsar. Planted on the same row as Maybank, Jalan Telawi, WTF deserves all the hype it can get because the Indian vegetarian dishes served here are incredibly delicious and different than any other Indian vegetarian food chains. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the menu and it might change your mind. Expect flavours of exquisite herbs prepared into every dish with love.

5. Jujube Vegetarian Coffee House
Vegetarian food chains are more common than cafes, which is why Jujube Coffee House is in this list so you can satisfy your cravings for desserts. Their logo and shop information is mostly written in Chinese characters on Facebook, so your best bet is to head over to either the café or vegetarian house and try out their wide selection of food. The positive customer reviews really compensate for the café’s lack of information online.
