Kitch Garden Cafe @ Rangoon Road, Georgetown, Penang.

Another option for those who practice plant-based diet, Kitch Garden did not originally offer a plant-based menu when it first started but recently, they have converted into a vegetarian cafe, offering only a plant-based food menu. While the menu is not too big, it ranges from both local delights (like Assam Laksa, Curry Mee) to international dishes (Japanese Curry, Quesadilla etc). Budget watchers would be glad to know that all food items are reasonably priced here at Kitch Garden Cafe. Nothing overly fancy about the dining hall or restaurant setting... just a comfortable, air-conditioned space for a simple, fuss-free vegetarian meal. 

Assam Laksa (Rm 13)

Japanese Curry Rice (Rm 14)

Taiwanese Burger (Rm 8)

Soy Milk (Rm 6)

One of their best sellers is Assam Laksa... which ticked most of the boxes right. The sourness was apparent and the unique Assam flavor was bold, the heat was there too (presumably from the Bird's Eye chilies)... though we did not get the sweet seafood aftertaste in this. The rice noodles were nicely cooked with a silky smooth texture as well. Equally nice was Taiwanese Burger, fluffy bun sandwiching some seasoned Bean Curd covered in slight-sweet sauce. With the contrast of crunchy elements, the combo was a pleaser. Japanese Curry Rice on the other hand, was less-impressive. The rice was not Japanese Rice and the Curry was a little watered down... or not as thick, creamy as we would have hoped, though the Japanese Curry flavor can still be tasted. We washed down the meal with the lightly sweetened, creamy Soy Milk.
