7 Places to Go for Vegetarian Food in Petaling Jaya

Looking for vegetarian food in Petaling Jaya? Check out these restaurants which serve up meatless dishes ranging from Western and Thai cuisine to organic food.

Consuming more greens is supposed to be good for you and with the number of people opting to ‘go veg’, finding a vegetarian spot for a good meal these days should not be that difficult. Even die-hard carnivores can attest to the fact that going green can sometimes be an awesome experience. There are so many types of vegetables – and also artificial meat – to be had!

We live in a world where gluten-free, organic and vegan are becoming rather well-known terms but because meat is a staple of many households, preparing a good vegetarian dish without making it boring/bland can be considered quite a talent.

If you live in Petaling Jaya or are visiting the area, check out some of these vegetarian-friendly spots that are far from mediocre.

1. Restoran Organic Express

Here, pasta dishes and more are in tune with western culinary styles. Vegetarian pasta dishes you can select from include staples such as aglio olio and pesto. The menu also consists of items like fried mushroom salads and others that exemplify the restaurant’s unique approach to textures and tastes.

Kuan Yin Restaurant is located in Seksyen 17, PJ. Due to religious practices, this restaurant serves vegetarian food without using onions or garlic. Despite what may be seen as a limitation on the usage of ingredients, the restaurant does a splendid job at great flavours and aromas. And despite not having any meat ingredients included in any of the food served, many of the items on the menu have the names, tastes, and appearance of meat dishes, such as Thai spicy chicken rice and mutton curry.
