Cafe & Bakery with a ‘slight’ difference…
A new bakery ala cafe has recently opened its doors in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. Namely, MG’s Vegetarian Cafe & Bakery, a bakery with a difference. So what’s makes it different? Well, for one, their offerings are a vegetarian, so vegans now have an extra choice for pastries and food in the area, two, how many vegetarian bakeries are there? Well you do the math.
It’s doors open to a some bakery displays on the left, followed by a cashier counter with a cake display and more bakery and patisserie displays covering a hidden covered kitchen, neatly disguised by interesting cement like wall paint and overhangs. While on the right, sits a huge water fountain vase / vessel, followed by neat arrangements of seatings for 2 or 4. Furniture are plain white, possibly self assembled Ikea’s but as long as it’s decent.
So what’s good of a place if the food’s not right? So to ensure that, here’s some stuffs we tried…
First there was the Home Style Noodle, thin pan mee like noodle, with shreds of carrot, cucumber, soya-based vegetarian char siu, and soya-based vegetarian meat floss, covered with a sweet-soy-mixture sauce. Well, it’s not the best noodle dish we’ve tried, but it was not bad, probably if it’s done like a cold soba, it could be perfect.
Next, was something interesting, having to love beef noodle soups, we were surprised to see this offered on the menu, Vegetarian Beef Brisket Beef Noodle Soup. We certainly didn’t see this coming, hence we ordered it. Amazingly it tasted a lot like the ‘real’ thing, except the ‘beef brisket’ are shreds of soya instead of the ‘real meat’. Nevertheless, for vegans who had always wanted to try the beef brisket noodle, here’s a good chance to do so.
To compliment the food, we had also tried, their recommended Green Tea Latte, which was pretty good and refreshing. Something for a change, than the usual coffee latte.
When we are done with the food, so then came the dessert, a Tiramisu. Served in a cup, we found a texture a lil’ too soft, as we would prefer some texture to it rather than none. Sweetness is a bit overdone, otherwise it was ok.
Overall, we can conclude that this is more of a cafe than a bakery, but being vegetarian, they do have their competitive edge over some of the maturing food options in the area.
So have you try it out yet?
