It’s hard to maintain a good, healthy lifestyle in this day and age. Of course, one of the main factors that can contribute to maintaining this is by eating healthy. As such, it’s understandably a sticking point for many.
Well, eating healthy may be difficult, especially in KL, but here’s a place to help you on your healthy journey. Not only do they offer good food and a nice space to chill in, it is of course, semi-plant based! Meet After One.
This Michelin standard café is located at Persiaran Lidcol, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It is a little secluded and out-of-the-way. But, that only means you’ll be guaranteed peace from the everyday hustle and bustle of the city.
Tastefully decorated and outfitted, it offers a cosy getaway in the middle of KL. You can choose to spend your time either indoors or outdoors. Either way, it has plenty of natural light and a pleasant atmosphere. Feel free to come alone or with some friends. If not, consider bringing your fur baby, as they are also pet friendly!
The food is guaranteed pork free with a vegan friendly menu. Created by local-born but widely travelled Chef Lee, their menu has a fine balance of taste and healthy living. Of course, there are options for meat lovers, but we do suggest trying some of their greener fare. You just may like it.
For starters, we recommend giving the Sour du Jour a go. The roasted cauliflower soup has hints of almond and chili oil to spice it up, which makes for a surprisingly tasty combination. Next would be their Tomato Tartine which is a slice of sourdough bread topped with sweet momotaro tomato and avocado. It’s taste settles more on the savoury side of things, with the sourdough offsetting the sweetness. However, the toppings elevate each other’s flavours. It certainly offers a flavourful yet healthy meal.
If you like having eggs for your meal, their best seller is Eggs Benny, a meal of poached eggs, cured salmons, English muffins and tomato hollandaise. If you want the vegetarian option, the Tofu Scramble might please your palate, especially if you love tofu. This mix of tofu with sweet potatoes, shiitake mushrooms, and curry spices is definitely a filling and delicious choice.
Finish off your meal with a sweet treat; pancakes. Each bite offers a thick mouthful of pancakes. It’s certainly sweet thanks to the nutty praline, but it has plenty of natural fruits to boost its flavour. Otherwise, they also have waffles with a variety of toppings for you to enjoy.
If you’re intending on bringing a big group here, why not make it a proper party? Feel free to book their event space to host events for a half-day to a full-day. With up to 130 pax, they also offer outsourcing services to ensure your event needs are met. They’ll even customise your menu to suit your and your guests’ taste buds.
Well, After One is a great place to have a healthy meal, especially if you’re feeling peckish but on a strict diet. As the saying goes: “You are what you eat!”
