Living Food Bistro @ Menara Tan & Tan

Returning to Living Food for Round Three. Earlier entries: Jan. 5 and Jan. 19, 2012.

Living Food has stayed alive for nearly a year now; this is still a top spot for a low-guilt meal. Eggs can be enjoyed better with the knowledge that they're free-range.

Omelet filled with mozzarella and herbs. Delicious but detrimental to the wallet at about RM18.

When do mushrooms taste like olive tapenade? When they're served at Living Food. Wonderful.

Living Food might be a health-food restaurant but it's not a vegetarian one; omnivores can order super-tender beef, slow-cooked with raisins, spices and quinoa.

Banana-lavender pancakes, beautifully presented.

Open up for plenty of sweet, fruity fiber. Would love some ice cream with this.

Wholemeal bread, thick and tasty, with a nutty sprouted almond butter.

We've reached this point without salads, but it's worth trying this mix of brie, arugula, walnuts, sliced strawberries and pear with lemon balsamic dressing.

Buckwheat granola with almond milk and fruits. Perfect for a light breakfast to start the morning or a sinless dessert to wrap up a meal.

  1. Banana lavender pancakes are still one of my favorites. I love going to a restaurant where my taste buds get a treat without my conscience going on a guilt trip.

  3. Not into health food and healthy eating...but those eggs look exactly like how I would love them. Not too crazy about free-range eggs - they do not have that eggy smell...that I like. LOL!!!!

    1. Suituapui: heheh, i haven't quite noticed much of a difference between the taste of regular eggs and free-range ones, but maybe i should try a side-by-side comparison! :D

    1. YouHadYourLunch: yeah, the prices do feel a little on the too-steep side, though i figure the bistro's owners would be able to justify the prices if we asked them to, heheh :D

  7. I love eggs which have very orange yolk! It's true you can only get those with free range or organic eggs.

    1. Pureglutton: ooh parking can be terrible during office hours on weekdays, so you might wanna park across jalan tun razak around the micasa area and take the overhead bridge over to menara tan & tan :D
