The Yogitree @ The Garden Mid Valley
"Eat - Drink - Breath" I saw this on their menu... of course we have to breath la, otherwise how are we going to live??? Sorry, bad joke :) Mid Valley is our favourite place to hangout, and since Jenn & I always go to Isetan, I wonder why in the world that we'd never stepped inside this place before until recently. One particular Saturday morning, we arrived here shortly after 10am, and the whole place was empty. We were the first customers of the day!!!
TOKL and NST had come here to review their food & drink before... they even placed the menu outside for potential customers to browse through...
At Yogitree, everything's organic (well, almost) as they strive to promote well-being and awareness of the food whilst maintaining a sensible balance. Their cooking manifesto is simple:
1) freshest ingredient possible,
2) bring out natural taste,
3) use slow cooking method (no short cuts), and
They have a section that sells merchandise for yoga practitioners.
They used Natural and Earthy colour as theme for the restaurants...
Jenn was very hungry and therefore she went for Full English Breakfast @ RM28 - bacon, chicken sausage, organis eggs, organic homemade baked beans, mushrooms, toasts, fresh juice, coffee or tea... since she can't take beef, they gave an extra sausage instead. To her dismay though, was that the baked beans were very hard and her sunny side up eggs came with cooked yolk... The sausages and grilled button mushrooms were good though.
I had their Turkey Ham & Cheese BLT on toasted granary with beef bacon, tomato and lettuce @ RM22 - I love the crispy-ness of the toast coupled with melted cheese on top of the turkey ham...
Since she had the fruit juice... I took her free coffee instead :)
Leo's verdict - Organic food normally warrant for higher price compared to their non-organic counterparts. The portion of the food does not justify the price, and so I guess it's the price I have to pay to be healthy. Yogitree always come up with special menu once in a while so you would be tempted to come back again and again and again.
