Ein­stein Café

Veg­e­tar­ian; Ve­gan

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Eating Out -

Lo­cated in the well-loved fra­cas that is Chi­na­town is a veg­e­tar­ian restau­rant quirk­ily named Ein­stein Café. An ode to the world-fa­mous Ger­man physi­cist, this place has its food down to a sci­ence. To sim­plify things, two sep­a­rate menus list the café’s veg­e­tar­ian and non­veg­e­tar­ian dishes. Some crowd­pleasers in­clude the car­bonara spaghetti, the Cheesy Egg Burger with fries (a wor­thy con­tender to McDon­ald’s Egg McMuf­fin), and the meat­less mut­ton ren­dang (looks like the real thing, tastes dif­fer­ent in a good way). Quench your thirst with ar­ti­sanal so­das by The Tap­ping Tapir, a Se­lan­gor-based com­pany, in flavours such as Orange & Jas­mine, Ap­ple & Vanilla and Hi­bis­cus & Lime. If the kids clam­our for some­thing sweet, or­der the honey toast with fresh fruit or the Bam­boo Char­coal mille crêpe.

Lo­cated one floor above street level, the flight of stairs might pose an ob­sta­cle to par­ents with strollers. The café seems more stu­dent-friendly than kid-friendly (dur­ing our visit, one of the long ta­bles was com­pletely oc­cu­pied by a gag­gle of school boys in uni­form). That be­ing said, we love Ein­stein Cafe’s ec­cen­tric am­bi­ence; think whim­si­cal wa­ter­colours on the walls and a grand­fa­ther clock. Most im­por­tantly, the price is right and con­sid­er­ably cheaper than most other cafés of­fer­ing the same sort of dishes. 58 Jalan Sul­tan, KL (012 363 6004/www.face­book.com/ein­stein. cafe.kl). Daily, 10.30am-9pm.
