29, Wayang St, Kuching, Malaysia, 93000

Serves meat, vegan options available. Cafe with a small menu of Sarawakian Chinese style food. Around half of menu is vegetarian and can be made vegan upon request. Sample dishes like dabai (local black olive), fried rice, cangkuk manis noodles (rice noodles with a type of sweet local veg), and lui cha (rice based dish tipped with peanuts, tempeh, veggies, served with a bitter tea broth). Open Tue-Sun 10:00am-3:00pm.

Very good cook - Edit

Their dishes are nothing earth-shocking, mainly rice and noodle dishes like everywhere else... but the way HOW they prepare it is absolutely delicious! My non-vegan partner came back at least 8 times because he loved the food here so much. Also very very cheap, which is a nice bonus.

Ask for vegan though (they're vegetarian, not vegan) and repeat a few times to make sure it's without egg... my 'vegan' meal came with egg more than once.

Pros: Cheap, Great food quality, Nice sitting space

Cons: Not all vegan, you have to ask, No wifi

Cozy place with a couple of vegetarian/vegan options - Edit

Staff is very friendly and are used to catering to vegan or vegetarian customers. Everything we tried was very delicious. Just ask for recommendations.

Cute cafe - Edit

Cute cafe owned by super friendly owner and staff. Serves meat but offers vegetarian and vegan foods. Make sure you mention you are vegan so the owner can give you suggestions! I have tried their dabai fried rice and petai fried rice but both tasted almost the same so that was underwhelming. They have matcha cheesecakes, red velvet cakes and waffles as well but they are not vegan. I love their lui cha and three sour drink which is a drink made of lime and preserved fruits.

It is located at Wayang street behind the St Thomas church. Opposite the cafe is Medan pelita, a very colourful building. There are lots of plants in the front of the tiny shop. It is located in between a flower shop and the Ranee Gift Gallery.

Say hi to the cute cats that live next door in the flower shop to the cafe! Sometimes they like to drop by the cafe to demand attention and back scratches :-)

Pros: Friendly staff, Nice food, Cosy

Cons: Limited menu, Serves meat, Limited seating
