The Good Co. @ Bangsar

This discreet new destination is dedicated to the promise of healthful, meatless eating, offering salad pots, sandwiches, dessert jars & cold-pressed juices in a leafy setting at Bon Estates Gallery, across the road from Bangsar Shopping Centre.

Salad pots are the chief attraction - elaborate ensembles that take culinary cues from both East & West, from the Skinny Sumo (mixed leaves, roasted pumpkin, grilled eryngii mushrooms, wakame, alfalfa, okra, cherry tomatoes, honey sesame dressing) to Superfit Angmoh (arugula, pesto quinoa, roasted vegetables, pepper relish, avocado mash, chickpeas, balsamic vinaigrette). The Asian-accented variations might be the bestsellers - the Malaysian 'Nasi Lemak' (virgin coconut oil millet, sambal, free-range eggs, tempeh, roasted peanuts, kyuri), Korean Kimchi Cauliflower 'Fried Rice' (cauliflower rice, house-made kimchi, soy-marinated tofu, carrots, broccoli) & Thai Scallop-dee-kap (grilled mushroom 'scallops' marinated with ginger & lemongrass, mango, glass noodles, passion fruit dressing). Each pot costs between RM15.90 & RM20.90, justifiable for substantial servings of fresh, quality ingredients, with each recipe conveying pleasantly distinct, well-balanced dynamics.

Sandwiches are thickly stuffed, conveniently packed for on-the-move lunches, with bread made from organic ingredients (RM12.90-RM18.90). Choices include Curried EMS (turmeric bread, kitchen-made curried mayo, celery, free-range eggs, pickled beetroot), The Hulk (rye bread, arugula, cream cheese, avocado mash, pepper relish), Daging Tarik (herb bread, pulled shredded oyster mushrooms, batavia lettuce) & Triple Deck (cranberry bread, tempeh, avocado, tomato, mild cheddar).

To round out the selection, we favour the Mindful Jar (RM14.90; overnight rolled oats, mango, muesli, hedjmool dates, maple, passion fruit), Skinny Dip (RM12.00; juice of lotus root, green apple, jicama, lemon, wild honey, mint), IronMan (juice of beetroot, goji berry, ginger, lemon, carrot, apple) & carob peanut latte (RM14; coffee beans come from VCR). The Good Co. hopes to have its products available soon at gyms & other locations; deliveries are also possible - thegoodco.my has details.

  5. Those Salad Pots are so attractively packaged making them irresistible! I would grab one never mind that it comes with a steep price tag, just to have a taste.

  7. Yea the jar thing is really aesthetics.. u definitely have to pour out to eat and besides, how much can that jar for that price?

    BUt if a bowl is provided (and I dont have to wash) I'll definitely try it here coz the variety offered is quite interesting compared to the other brand that started the salad in a jar concept.

    Btw, I love such spaces. airy and bright. Where did u park Sean?

    1. Rebecca: ooo, the contents of the salad pots actually felt quite substantial here - bigger than some of the usual jars. And the ingredients seemed of good quality ;) I didn't drive, but I think the best place to park is Bangsar shopping centre, then cross the road :)
