Hainan Village Malayan Kopitiam
On Google, it describes itself as:
“Honoured as the “First Hainanese Vegetarian Kopitiam in Malaysia” by the Malaysia Book of Records in February 2022, Hainan Village Kopitiam preserves the love for the animals and the passion to share good, meat-free Hainanese food with everyone in Malaysia, regardless of faith or race. By fusing traditional taste of Kampung and modern cooking styles, complemented with spice-filled sauces, each and every dish served at Hainan Village Kopitiam is healthy, hearty and most importantly – absolutely delicious.”
From the outset, it looked like any other kopitiam in the mall. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that it was a kopitiam that served vegetarian food.
We ordered the below for our lunch.
Signature Hainan Roasted VChicken Rice
Looking for a vegetarian version of chicken rice, we had the Signature Hainan Roasted VChicken Rice. It is a delicious and satisfying meal that is also perfect for vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The V stands for Vegetarian. The “vegetarian chicken” was beancurd.
Signature Nasi Lemak With Rendang VMutton
Like any other nasi lemak, it had the sambal, ikan bilis (anchovies), kacang (peanuts), cucumber, egg, and nasi lemak. What’s different was the vegetarian mutton which, well, tasted like mutton and had potatoes.
