A Lunch Date at Woods Macrobiotics (Long Life Diet) Restaurant, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar

I met up with my college friend at this reputable organic health food restaurant. She is a regular customer at Woods Macrobiotics Restaurant and she has been taking organic food for more than 4 years. Maybe that is why she is still looking as young as ever! She knows most of the dishes in the menu and she did a good job in recommending some nice food to me. The owner and chef, June Lim has created a wide variety of nice 100% vegetarian organic food. Woods used to be in Damansara Utama and they moved to this new location in Bangsar around two years ago. The food in this restaurant does not contain any preservatives, chemical additives, colouring, MSG, eggs, meat and diary products. My favourite is the pasta which is actually a kind of organic bihun (rice vermicelli) cooked in thick starchy wat tan hor (tua pan) like gravy. I know pasta sounds like the Italian pasta but this is another type altogether.
Among other ingredients in this pasta dish are black beans, carrots, choy sum, cabbage and wet bean curd strips. The pasta is garnished with lettuce and capsicum. This dish taste so good! For desert, my friend ordered a dragon fruit cake and also a carrot cake. She told me that they do not use baking powder in the cake but use yeast instead. Eggs and diary product are also not used in these cakes. It is a healthier way of baking a cake. Anyway the texture is the same as normal cake and it taste nice. I cannot remember the type of tea we ordered but it has a nice aroma and it matched the dessert we had. Before we left the place, I saw Nigari Salt being displayed for sale in the fridge near the check out counter. I bought one bottle as a coagulant for my home made tofu.

A few weeks ago, I went to an open-air market here in Seattle, everything is organic, like pototoes that are only watered when it rains and free-range beef. I took everything home and cooked it all up. The result was the tastiest most fat-free meal we had in a long time. Organic does make a difference and I didn't feel overly full after enjoying this meal either.

Pete said...

Moonaroo : I agree, there is something different about organic food....plain yet very satisfying! Free range beef is sweet and juicy!
