In promoting “Eat just enough. Mostly plants.” and going meatless as often as we can, all for the animals, we bring you our long overdue Saturday segment of food talk.
We’ve been patronising Medifoods at SS18 Subang Jaya for as long as we’ve lived in Subang Jaya. From a one-shoplot grocery selling organic produce, it became a restaurant and now, it already has branches in several places in the Klang Valley, including one at the SDMC.
We went to try Medifoods’ buffet breakfast this morning. This is something new, and it only started yesterday. For this month, the promotional offer is only RM10.80 per head (inclusive of GST).
Let’s start with the salads.
Home made sauces, which the owner, Mr Looi, derived by himself.
Mr Looi says he doesn’t cook, but he understands food science, and it was interesting listening to him talk passionately about how he came up with the recipe for each sauce, after numerous experimentation.
Porridge and its condiments.
The famous Medifoods nasi lemak and its three sauces.
On the bottom right of the above photo, you’d see the homemade baked beans. The sauce is made from papaya and tomato. It was delicious.
Toast and two homemade jams.
Using papaya as a neutral base, Mr Looi discovered that psyllium husk worked as a natural “gelling agent”. Eating this jam would almost definitely ensure good bowel movement for the day!
Both jams were delicious.
Non-dairy creamer, made from oat embryo. Ingenious!
(Too bad I’m allergic to oat…sigh)
Medifoods local desserts – the pau, chai kuih, onde-onde, yam and radish cake and ang-koo.
Everything for only RM10.80??
Medifoods’ buffet breakfast opens at 7am every morning.
