i have started embracing vegetarian (vegan) diet end of last year. and i was a vegan for about two months due to some personal reason. surprisingly, i was okay with no meat/seafood. i am back to being an
carnivorous omnivorous now but i’m still on vegan diet on the 1st and 15th day of the lunar month. that’s why i am very eager to explore more vegetarian food scene in Malacca. if you have any recommendation, do comment and let me know ya!
Veggie Planet is my recent love. and i returned within a month. the menu is diversified, comprising rojak, herbal egg, sandwiches, Nyonya curry, tom yam, noodle with different soup base, pasta, nasi lemak, lui cha, asam pedas, nasi ulam, and porridge.
other than serving no meat, all the dishes here contain NO artificial flavour, NO msg, NO artificial colouring, NO preservative, and NO microwave-cooking. every dish is prepared with care and love. oh and the wait staffs are very hospitable and enthusiastic. if you love and believe in what you’re doing, it will show.

i love the serenity this space exudes. it’s very calm and zen in here.
brown rice vermicelli drenched in pine nuts pesto soup base, topped with bean curd skin, mushroom, carrot and Sabah veggie.
this dish surely does not look appealing at all, but it’s jam-packed full of nutrient. i had a spoon of the broth, but errr the pesto and i are never meant to be.
this is far more appetizing, isn’t it? look at the curry broth, it’s creamy and yummy right? surprise surprise, it contains NO coconut milk/yogurt at all!
this robust curry broth is made up of traditional curry powder, cashew nut, pine nut, walnut, almond sunflower oil and rose salt. you should not waste any drop of the broth with all the wonderful nuts in there, so healthy and delectable!
oh did i mention, the ramen is homemade as well?
creamy red bean prepared with organic red bean, black rice, pandan leaf, ginger, tangerine peel and brown sugar is served in a cute lil’ jug served with shot glasses.
purple cabbage, carrot, bean sprout, Chinese parsley encased beautifully within a chewy translucent rice wrapper, served with an appetizing dip made of homemade Thai sauce, lemon juice and brown sugar.
this dish reminded me the spring roll i had in Hanoi. it’s very light and refreshing, perfect as a appetizer.
all in all, we enjoyed our meal here. during my second visit, my bro had the Nyonya Curry and sang praise to it! while i tried their Tom Yam, very tangy and spicy, the way i likey my tom yam to be, but this is a 10x healthier version. definitely highly recommend this vegetarian eatery to whoever wanna be a herbivour for a meal, haha.
