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?
