WG Kechara Jaya One

Tuesday 9 October 2018 was "chor yat" (day 1 of the lunar month) and also the start of the Nine Emperor Gods Festival 2018 so my lunch group had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant that was almost fully occupied but we managed to get a table for 4 pax.

My friends' favourite mixed vegetable stir fry dish at MYR 15.80++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 18.33 nett). It has lotus root, macadamia nuts, ginkgo nuts, crunchy celery, baby corns, red capsicum, sugar snap peas, and carrot slices so the dish is tasty with the natural sweetness of the fresh vegetables.

Kung Po Hedgehog mushrooms (Hydnum repandum) - MYR 19.80++ (MYR 22.97 nett). The kung po gravy is very flavourful so people not used to light vegetarian food will like this very much.

Spinach Fried Rice - MYR 13.80++ (MYR 16 nett). There are pieces of "fake" luncheon meat cubes in the rice that taste exactly if not more tasty than real luncheon meat.

This Bak Kut Teh is from a set lunch which includes a bowl of plain white rice, a glass of tea and a small plate of fruit at MYR 11.90++ (MYR 13.80 nett). The soup is flavourful despite not having any meat in it. 

Papaya and tea - part of the Bak Kut Teh set meal. All 4 of us shared this set meal and all the above 3 dishes.

Total price for 4 pax is MYR 71.10 nett so it is MYR 17.80 nett per pax. I prefer light vegetarian dishes so I like the mixed vegetable dish the best and I would order dishes like that instead of the kung po dish.

Kechara Restaurant - New Age Vegetarian Cuisine - at Jaya One, PJ.

Please click on the above and below menu photos for a larger image. All the dishes recommended by the chef here are very flavourful so I don't think I will like them as I prefer lighter tasting dishes.

More flavourful dishes.

We ordered item 3009 and 3010 from the above menu and I like item 3010 more than 3009.

We also ordered 7001 from the menu above. My friends like the food here so we will very likely visit this restaurant again to share the dishes.

    1. The celery is very crunchy and fresh. If you try it here, you may learn to like eating celery.

  3. I guess a balance of light and flavourful dishes would be nice.
