Come here to experience interesting twists on traditional Indian cuisine and fusion dishes while still staying true to your vegetarian or vegan diet.

I think we can all agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially if you have a lot planned ahead of you.

You can also DIY your own smoothie bowl to suit your preferences if their menu items aren’t really your style. Check out their full breakfast menu here!

5. Nature’s Vegetarian Restaurant
Although vegetarian dishes aren’t necessarily rare to find in Chinese cuisine, it’s their meat-centric meals, like dim sum, that vegetarians and vegans really crave to eat. But what if I told you you wouldn’t have to worry about eating a good ol’ siumai anymore?
Here at Nature’s Vegetarian Restaurant, you get to enjoy completely vegetarian and vegan dim sum dishes, with mock meat being a popular substitute for pork, chicken and beef. Dishes can range from RM5-20, so you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank either! What are you waiting for? Check out their full menu here, now!
