Excellent Sunday Buffet
Posted on 12 / 15 / 2013
We've been to Nutriland Vegan Health Food Centre twice now on the recommendation of a local friend. Nutriland is only open for lunch from 11.30am to 2.00pm and is closed on Saturdays. From the exterior, the open shop front with cars parked outside doesn't look terribly inviting, but once you go in, the interior is large and bright.
During the week they serve set meals with a choice of at least 6/7 dishes. The cost is RM8.50 for three dishes and RM11 for four dishes, rice and soup. On a Sunday there is an all-you-can-eat buffet for the very reasonable cost of RM22 for which you get a choice of at least 15 dishes, tea and dessert.
The majority of the food is made from organic ingredients including the rice and noodles. We were very impressed both by the variety of food and the different and distinctive flavours.
On our visit there was a choice of red and brown rice, brown rice beehun, mixed vegetables, greens, arrow head potato, mushroom and tofu, sweet turnip and yam rolls, curry mee, asam laksa, and raw salads including a delicious beetroot and red cabbage salad.
Both the curry mee and asam laksa were delicious. Not a huge fan of asam laksa, I found this version was nicely spiced and not very sour.
Full from the main course, I still found space to try the desserts. There was fresh papaya, moulded jelly and a most amazing steamed pumpkin and coconut cake. I could have eaten it all of that cake but managed to restrain myself.
What impressed us about the food at Nutriland was that each dish was different and had a distinctive flavour. We also liked the fact that Ms Lim, the owner and cook was happy to explain exactly what was in each dish and how it was made. All the food is vegan containing no eggs, dairy or MSG.
No MSG, Tasty and delicious, Reasonable price
