Sala Vegan Restaurant @ Desa Sri Hartamas

This vegan haven is a melting pot of flavours from Mexico, Malaysia & more, illuminating how a meatless meal can consist of full-bodied, fulfilling fare - tacos topped with textured combinations like BBQ jackfruit, purple cabbage, chopped cucumbers, pico de gallo & cilantro (RM7; raw, leafy tacos are also available as occasional specials for RM28), house-cooked chili that's comfortingly rich with beans, sweet potatoes, lentils, tomatoes, vegan sour cream, vegan nacho cheese & crackers (RM9), falafel wraps with tahini, harissa, diced onions & bell peppers (RM18), creamy curry laksa with yellow noodles blanketed by tofu, bean sprouts, green beans, eggplant & lime (RM10 for a large portion), & nasi lemak with sambal tempeh, a fish-free sambal 'bilis' & nuts (RM10). Food that's good enough to make omnivores gladly forgo the familiarity of flesh for an afternoon.

  1. I like vegan when they do not make the food look like meat, fish or whatever.

  4. I like chili, this remind me that we haven't cooked that for long time. We like to add a bit of dark chocolate and peanut butter, hehe.

  5. Wish this hipster style trend in decor will go off soon - it's in overdrive now but so many have failed in offering form over substance. Wish Sala Vegan all the best with your effort on vegan food and that you'll enrich the cuisine scene in Hartamas in a meaningful way. Good luck!

  6. The nasi lemak and curry noodles look good! The heat definitely make vegetarian food tasted better and more acceptable for the beginners :P

    1. Choi Yen: yep - i like how it's fully vegan and does concentrate on a lot of natural, plant-based produce - with a focus on comfort-food recipes ;)

  7. RM10 for that laksa is reasonable considering the portion and neighbourhood, not to mention the fresh, good ingredients used!
