What to eat, what to eat? A Ben’s Healthy Food Review

Today is the day for a guest blogger to grace my humble blog and may I introduce to you Edith from She is now residing in KL and she would like to share one of her favourite eating places in KL. Being a vegan, Edith explores many vegetarian dishes and healthy choices are of utmost importance to her. Thanks Edith for your wonderful sharing.

 Here’ the deal: you can easily find a Ben’s in almost each mall in KL; on top of that, you can also easily find healthy food on their menus, because healthy food can mean vegetarian food, and in my case, it certainly does. I love vegetarian food, especially after the bad food poisoning experiences I had while working in Malaysia. If you stick through this post, you will love it, too! One of my favorite dishes is the Portobello Mushroom Burger. It’s basically a burger as any other, but instead of a fatty fried meat patty, you get a delicious healthy mushroom patty. It’s absolutely tasty and healthy at the same time – it’s all veggies! It comes with a good dose of fries and a side salad of their tasty salad.

 If you’re going for something lighter, you can perhaps try Ben’s House Salad, their signature salad. It’s so genuine that I actually have problems with identifying the dressing! It contains salad, tomatoes, cucumbers, soybeans and nuts. It has a salty and sour dressing which was probably prepared with balsamic vinegar, but other than that, I don’t know. If you prefer to enjoy toast or bread with your salad, you might as well order the garlic bread as a snack to accompany your light salad; otherwise, for a light dinner, it works without the toast as well.

Ben’s, however, is about more than just eating. Their concept is built around the idea that eating is about building relationships, and for that they have the perfect setting. Each table is nicely set and comfortable; in addition, each table comes with a box of conversations starters and recipes. While the recipes are to take, the conversation starters should stay for others to enjoy them, too. But if you find a recipe you like, you take it and try to prepare it at home. However, if you’re on an awkward first date; bumped into an acquaintance by chance and decided to sit at the same table; or you are just out of topics, you are saved! The conversation starters are fun and can potentially reveal forgotten facts about oneself – like ‘What is your first childhood memory?’ or ‘What is the one thing you would do if nobody found out about it?’. Finding out about Ben’s and then slowly getting addicted to it has worked out just fine for me. I was battling with indigestion and food poisoning a lot before I finally realized these things:

Getting to know more about what is good to eat vs what isn’t good to eat in order to avoid tummy issues has been very useful for me; and eating vegetarian at Ben’s has definitely been a part of these changes. Kudos for Ben’s!
