Earth Food

Little Green Planet, the Malaysian organic food firm, has opened its first cafe, called Earth Food _ a serene space nestled in Ampang's diplomatic enclave.

The recipes offered here are rooted in a bumper crop of organic foodstuff, antibiotic-free meat & other produce obtained from ecologically responsible sources.

We loved this huge helping of roasted beetroot, walnuts, shredded cheddar & mixed greens in balsamic vinaigrette. A crisp salad, filled with fresh, flavorsome ingredients.

Buttermilk pancakes with fruits & maple syrup. Could have been fluffier.

Pan-seared salmon with pineapple & asparagus. Moist and mouthwateringly tender.

Pistachio-crusted grain-fed beef sirloin with pepper sauce, mashed potatoes & French beans. Came out too cooked for our liking, but that's because we forgot to specify for it to be prepared medium-rare.

Rosti with egg. Let's call this an unguilty pleasure _ probably the healthiest, least greasy potato pancake to be found in the Klang Valley.

Potato wedges. Piping-hot perfection. Who says all carbs are evil?


Earth Food @ Little Green Planet,
Earthtree Family,
12, Jalan Ampang Hilir, Kuala Lumpur.

  3. j: heheh, naaah, healthy eating is not on the agenda (yet). we tried our best to AVOID the healthiest items on the menu here (berries cereal, minestrone soup, braised chicken stew with brown rice) :D
    eric: hmmmm, maybe there might be a problem with mosquitoes at night if they leave it open-air. it feels more comfortable like this during the daytime too, with the air-conditioning turned on :D

  17. Sean, You don't need to take Jln Ampang at all.. can turn into Jln U-Thant and Jln Ampang Hilir from Jln Tun Razak. (or as i did today : come via Kg.Pandan (also the fastest way to GE Mall!)
