By Danielle Sendou Ringgit
FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE that vegetarian food is either tasteless or unappetising, you might have a change of heart once you have a taste of the delights served at Idealite on Rock Road.
Whether it is for lunch, dinner or maybe dessert, Idealite offers a wide range of healthy, wholesome vegetarian dishes that are sure to leave you satisfied with their flavourful dishes.
Founded by Tan Yong Jen from Penang, Idealite, Kuching is the third outlet to be operated nationwide and is the first one to open in Sarawak.
Being a registered homeopathy therapist and a nutritionist under FCPAA Malaysia, Tan understands the importance of eating healthy and strongly believes one should be selective in making choices with their food.
For a start, why not try some of their appetizing and healthy Hokkaido Vege sushi? With assorted ingredients such as burdock and purple cabbage rolled with seaweed, the rice roll is a real treat for the taste buds. Diners might also want to try the colourful and well-seasoned Japanese Hericulum Salad.
Moving on from the light treats to a heavy meal, treat yourself to a scrumptious bowl of Bak Kut Teh. The meat is replaced with an assorted mixture of mushrooms such as the hericulum mushroom which is good for its anti-aging properties and shimeiji mushroom which strengthens the body and helps in brain development. With its aromatic and herbal flavouring, the dish is sure to make a long-lasting impression long after you’ve finished the dish.
Among the must-try dishes available at Idealite is the Soy Milk Steamboat. Filled with various vegetables, the dish is rich in fibre and low in calories. Pleasant and mouthwatering, the broth of the soup is simply savoury with the taste of vegetable stock and soy milk.
One of the signature dishes that diners should try is their signature Hakka Lei Cha. Lei cha which means ground tea or pounded tea, is a traditional Hakka rice dish. Widely known for its health benefits, it is one of the must-try dishes in Idealite.
Idealite also offers Western fusion dishes. Treat yourself to their Pumpkin Spice Spaghetti. Spicy without being overwhelming, the dish is simply scrumptious as the creamy pumpkin puree definitely complements spiciness of the dish.
Try out their heavenly and exquisite looking Mediterranean Eryngii Burger, where the flavour of Eryngii mushroom with black pepper and eggs wrapped in a charcoal bun is definitely mouth-watering.
In keeping with healthy eating and ‘clean’ food, the ingredients are washed in filtered water. Idealite food also does not have MSG, synthetic colouring, or preservatives. They also use olive oil in their cooking.
