Healthy food @ Country Farm Organics, Bangsar Village, Kuala Lumpur


super bright pink dragonfruit soy drink

Busy, busy, busy...., hence I have not had time to blog regularly. Not much time to visit new places except tried and tested places, like this favourite spot - Country Farm Organics. I can imagine, everyone going, errrr? nice ah, this kinda food?


yummiest ever fried rice


Strangely enough - it is, extremely tasty stuff. I often call this place, my comfort place since they serve affordable and delicious food. They employ slow cook techniques where they make an effort not to overheat and overcook the food till the natural enzymes are destroyed. Our all-time favourite is the Beta Carotene Fried Rice with tomato puree and lots of vegetables. It is usually Splashie Boy and my mother's must-have item here. However, do note that not all items taste great nor appeals to the general public, as some claim it taste "too healthy".


pineapple studded fried rice, another Splashie Boy favourite

I usually go for noodles - the dory fish noodles. Tastes like the fish head noodles with a milky broth but they give you boneless dory fish cubes. Other favourites include the fried noodles, the tomyam pasta and the pumpkin soup. Fatboybakes, another fan of this place swears by the bittergourd soup to cure hangovers.

Usually whenever we order these one plate items, I'll add a cooked vegetable dish. For our late lunch on Sunday, we decided to try the spinach, cooked cantonese style with wolfberries and egg. Yummy stuff - but sorry no picture.

Prices are also pretty reasonable especially for the Bangsar area - about RM8.90 for the fried rice and if you subscribe to the membership card, you get a 15% discount. You also get discounts with the membership card, if you purchase goods from the shop. Although they have an outlet in 1 Utama, I generally prefer the outlet at Bangsar instead. Do give it a try but be patient, especially during lunch and dinnertime, as it can get quite packed also with people.

boo_licious said...

babe - ok, but I realise there are 2 types of people with this food, either you love or hate it.

daphne - yup, with lots of fresh veggies that taste great!

cumi & ciki - hope you like it. It took me a while before I posted it, only after FBB said he loved this place too, as I get the impression people may not like healthy food.

bernsy - yeah they can be cooked at home. I know they do short recipes in their magazine. I usually just buy their products and cook it at home, sometimes like the pasta and noodles.

mycoffee - me not tried soy burger yet but I heard good things abt it from friends.

jelly - yup cooked food and even desserts like soy ice cream.

jackson - yes, I must try the nasi lemak. Seems you are also a regular here!

criz - yup, we often ask for more vegs with an extra plate of vegetables.

julian - cool stuff, saw that you made it to MTV asia awards.

ling239 - I'm building up a collection of them! Had one over the wkend at Marche also.

babe - must dig out my noodles cookbook, I have somewhere...

j2kfm - well, some people don't like healthy though so I thought better warn them first.

tummythoz - another idea, dragonfruit and honeydew. Nice as the honeydew gives it a sweet taste.

sc - LOL, hope you like it.

lannae - I know! and all natural, I love the deep pink hue of that fruit, perks up life.

mimi - hmmm, kimchi fried rice sounds yummy too but nope, tomato paste induced.

presa1200 said...
