Best Vegetarian Restaurants in KL

Written by Updated ago

If Julia Child had a quote for every vegetarian dish ever made in the world, it would have been “People who love to eat (vegetables) are always the best people (who have more fun)”. In truth, taking a break from meat need not necessarily be a dissatisfying and bland dining affair – vegetables are hearty and can be sumptuously delicious when cooked with a variety of savoury flavours. So vegans (and full-time meat-lovers who welcome and enjoy the occasional refreshing veggie breaks) rejoice – look no further than right in the heart of the bustling city for an amazing vegetarian fare that will be sure to whet your veggie-loving appetite in the following 7 best vegetarian restaurants you can find around Kuala Lumpur:

    Putting the fine in vegetarian dishes, you not only get to indulge in sets of meticulously prepared dishes, but also an immersive experience portrayed by Barat. Looking at vegetarian food as a cuisine itself, Barat has added a few touches of Mediterranean nuances in a couple of nook and crannies of its dishes, allowing the palate to be coated with exquisite and quaint flavours. Dishes like a creamy Pistachio Pasta; curry infused couscous; opulent pumpkin soup; and sweet dessert endings are some of the headliners that leads the vegetarian cuisine here at Barat.
