While Klang Valley is one of the most exciting places for those who enjoy eating out, one has to admit that it’s not exactly easy finding food that’s genuinely healthy.
Delicious food is easy enough to find and that’s what this site is dedicated to. There are also cafés aplenty that offer cool concepts and beautiful dining experiences that deliver loads of “instagram-worthy” memories.
But now there’s Medifoods, offering something rather unique to health-conscious foodies.
The founder of Medifoods is actually a licensed pharmacist. You wouldn’t have guessed it but it’s not a surprise when you look closely at the restaurant’s name.
The concept behind Medifoods is to provide delicious food that is also healthy. This is achieved by how the food is prepared and through the selection of carefully crafted ingredients. This includes using non-GMO ingredients, MSG-free flavourings, and harvesting vegetables from the restaurant’s own farm.
In addition to these foods, they also offer consultation on food selection and choices if adopting a healthy lifestyle is what you seek. There’s an in-house nutritionist just for that purpose.
Medifood’s FIT Menu gives you the choice to choose from either one protein and two vegetables at RM16.90, or two proteins and one vegetable for RM18.90.
These sets are paired with a base of rice (parboiled basmati), multigrain brown rice, or a combination of quinoa and millet for an extra RM2.00.
So what about the combination of these proteins and vegetables? And more importantly, are they any good in terms of taste?
There are four different dishes of farmed-raised organic tilapia. These include Ginger Steamed Fish; Deep-Fried Fish with Ginger; Steamed Fish with Soya Sauce and Fried Ginger, and lastly Steamed Fish with Assam Sauce.
The chicken dishes include Steamed Chicken with Minced Ginger; Green Curry Chicken, and Chicken with Herbs.
A couple of egg dishes are also part of the menu. These are Chinese-style omelette and steamed egg, as well as four different preparations of tofu and mushroom dominated dishes.
The flavours aren’t overwhelming and generally a little more subtle in nature while retaining the ingredients’ natural sweetness. This is rather comforting actually.
There’s also over half a dozen different vegetable dishes to pick from. The bitter gourd with egg was outstanding, but there’s also bok choi, choi sam, mixed vegetables, brinjal, and such.
If paired with tofu or egg as your protein choice, you can easily have a delicious vegetarian meal without resorting to consuming “mock meat”.
The quinoa and millet base is top choice as both are high in fibre, magnesium, and antioxidants. But if you are a true Asian who can’t live without rice, that’s available too.
The FIT Menu is available daily. If you’re after a healthier hot meal, this is a place to check out.
On weekends, Medifoods also offers their signature Healthy Breakfast Buffet. It is essentially a buffet spread specifically curated with healthier options in the all-you-can-eat format.
At RM21.80 per person, here’s what you get: The salad bar with over 20 different ingredients from green peas, cherry tomatoes, roast pumpkin, corn, eggs, spinach, and leafy greens.
There’s also the noodle station offering fried mee hoon, pizza, and fried rice.
There is also a variety of traditional kuih to choose from that includes Pumpkin Cake, Radish Cake, fried spring rolls as well as santan-free Nasi Lemak with Medifood’s home-made sweet and spicy sambal.
Part of Medifoods’s buffet breakfast selection includes Oat Embryo Milk, bread and Onde-Onde.
Last but not least is the spread consisting of bread, onde-onde, oat embryo milk, and a free flow of coffee or tea. There’s also porridge and two different types of Tongsui to choose from.
The buffet is really the option to go with if you have a good appetite, are not willing to sacrifice healthy eating, and want good value all at the same time.
