Spe­cialty di­ets catered for at these eater­ies without com­pro­mis­ing on taste

Fi­nally head­ing our way is a host of eater­ies of­fer­ing plenty of dairy-, gluten- and meat-free meals and op­tions to cater for those on spe­cial di­ets or have food al­ler­gies. Veg­e­tar­ian, ve­gan and gluten-free food is also no longer con­strained to mock meats or bland-tast­ing items. Bring the kids to any of these places and they will soon stop turn­ing up their noses at the words ‘veg­e­tar­ian food’.

Or­gan­ica Life­style

This yoga stu­dio and café is spa­cious, clean and homey enough that you’ll feel safe let­ting your tots tum­ble about. Waf­fle, the teddy bear-like res­i­dent puppy, may come sniff­ing around for scraps, but don’t be alarmed – he doesn’t bark or bite.

Crafted by nu­tri­tion­ists from Aus­tralia, Or­gan­ica Life­style’s veg­e­tar­ian menu is con­cise but in­trigu­ing. If your child loves grains, opt for the Quinoa Lemak, a san­tan- free, low-fat take on nasi lemak which re­places co­conut rice with pro­tein-rich quinoa. An­other stel­lar dish is the Zuc­chini and Lemon Frit­ter with a Poached Egg; a gen­er­ous squeeze of the ac­com­pa­ny­ing lemon wedge plus a dol­lop of freshly made lab­neh (strained yo­ghurt) give the dish a zesty edge. There’s also whole­some por­ridge and a Car­rot & Cau­li­flower Purée for ba­bies and toddlers. Por­tions are large at Or­gan­ica, which means you’re not likely to have room for dessert, but noth­ing’s stop­ping you from tak­ing away a slice of the brownie or salted caramel cake for snack time. The former is gluten-free while the lat­ter is light on the hips with but­ter re­placed by heart-friendly olive oil. 66 Lorong Maarof, Bangsar, KL (012 340 8565/www. or­gan­i­cal­ Tue-Sun, 10am-5pm.
