Best Lei Cha in KL

Written by Updated ago

For Hakkas or vegetarian, you all might know what Lei Cha is, and for those who don't, it's basically a compilation of vegetables in a bowl followed by a tsunami of green tea 'broth' or 'soup'. It may sound a little odd, but then again, it is. Having said that, if done correctly, a bowl of Lei Cha can be absolutely delightful. Plenty of textures to go around and the flavours certainly are quite distinct. It's either a like-it or hate-it kinda thing. So be wary.

    You know you're in a good spot for some lei cha when the cafe itself is half painted in green. The lei cha, being one of the signature dish, comes with a large bowl of assorted vegetables, peanuts, rice, noodles and of course, the green tea soup itself. Mix it up all you'll be exposed to a plethora of flavours, as well as a play of texture. It's fragrant, light, slightly savoury and ultimately, delicious. Oh, it's really cheap too!

    If you're ever in the mood for some Lei Cha, then perhaps Lui Cha King might just do you justice. After all, it's named after the dish itself, with an added 'king' at the end. Freshness is also something that they are very particular at, ensuring each serving of lei cha served is as great as it can get. Lovely amount of chai oh, lovely cooked vegetables, crunchy roasted peanuts, and dried shrimps. It also comes with a side of aromatic green tea broth. 

    Tips

    Close every alternate Monday.
