Any vegetarian knows how difficult it can be to dine out. Many restaurants have limited vegetarian options, with most of their veg list made up of basic salads or soups. Plus, you don’t always want your non-vegetarian friends to choose a food spot just to accommodate you.
But it seems like these days, vegetarian food is taking their revenge by being the yummiest, most wholesome dishes that have the potential to tempt even the meat lovers. Best of all, it doesn’t have to be expensive, with the ENTERTAINER App offers.
So, come forth, our dear veggie friends. You’re going to want to bookmark this delicious list of some of the most amazing vegetarian restaurants in Malaysia.
Located on Armenian Street in Penang, Veggielicious is the perfect spot for vegetarian and vegan food that will spice up your usual food fare. They serve North Indian and Western cuisines with unique twists, such as vegetarian versions of beloved dishes like fish & chips and hamburgers at reasonable prices. Veggielicious has been making a name for itself as the spot for travelling vegetarians in a state that’s already famous for its food offerings. For non-Penangites, here’s another reason for you to make a trip up north, whether or not you’re a vegetarian.

The giants of the salad world need no introduction, but we’re always happy to talk about the good folks at Salad Atelier. Along with other modern salad bars, they’ve totally changed the way people look at salad by creating salad bowls that are pretty much masterpieces, serving portions of green goodness that are customisable according to your every wish. Need more protein? Pack on the beans and nuts. Love cheese? Have more of it. With around 80 different toppings to choose from, having salad every day suddenly isn’t a challenge anymore.

When it comes to vegetarian food, it’s normal to think of Indian food straightaway, but with more restaurants like Junior Chellapa, who offer contemporary takes on classic Indian dishes, we’re definitely not complaining. Located close to the KL Tower, JC’s wonderful décor art depicting charming Indian village scenes and old photographs gives you a sense of the culture behind the food. Although not exclusively a vegetarian restaurant, JC’s variety of vegetarian dishes such as their rich and flavourful Eggplant Masala and Palak Paneer make it a good option too.
