A late night stroll around Little India in Georgetown saw me stumbling across this small cafe, The Leaf Healthy House. Delighted to see brown rice on the menu I vowed a return. Convincing my carnivorous husband and our Tree Monkey friends to give vegetarian a turn, I happily led them back for lunch the following day. Describing themselves as “a natural vegetarian cafe” preparing food “without MSG, no white sugar, no white salt, no artificial colouring or preservatives” I knew I had chosen well.

A vibrant blend of juices were our first order. A super combo of beetroot, carrot, celery, lemon and apple made up the Give Me 5 and mango, orange, pineapple and organic honey fashioned the Hi-C Juice. Lassi can be made from any number of seasonal fruits, but the one hubby had this day was a banana version. The food was just as nourishing. The Nasi Ulam made with brown rice was delicious, filling and joyously tickled our insides. The Hand Rolled Vietnamese roll filled with brown rice vermicelli, lettuce, peppers and fungi was refreshing and made special with the green dipping sauce. Vegetarian spaghetti pleased the boys and Mama’s Rice featuring brown rice and three home made curries was a lovely treat.
