The Ganga Cafe, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

Nestled in Lorong Kurau is The Ganga Cafe, a restaurant serving South Indian vegetarian fare with a twist of Gujarati flavours. We first noticed this restaurant when we were in the vicinity (same row as Hit & Mrs as well as Baba Low) and then were enticed with wonderful food photos on Instagram, thanks to our friend Meena.

When The Unc was back, we finally made our way there as he was craving for some Indian food. The Ganga Cafe prides themselves in serving vegetarian food that is free from MSG and artificial coloring. Full menu can be viewed here.

They offer several a la carte dishes such as roti channai, thosai, idiyappam, putu set and Ganga burger, as well as lunch and dinner sets in various size. The sets come with either brown rice, tomato rice, biryani rice, chapatti, Ayurvedic chapatti,  thosai or roti canai.

We went for the biryani rice, tomato rice and Ayurvedic chapatti. Each set comes with four types of vegetables plus dhal, tangy rasam, vegetable curry and poppadums. Everything was very tasty and wholesome,  it's one of the meals which instantly perks you up.

Brown Rice Thali

I had the Ayurvedic chapatti which is made from a blend of wheat, oats, maize, ragi, chana dal, and barley. Baby C loved this! The servers also recommended the vegetarian "mock meat" which tasted good too.

For drinks, we had the mango lassi, Ganga Tea Crush and Pranic juice. The Pranic juice (RM7) was highly recommended by the server, which is said to be good for detoxifying and cooling your body. Made from herbs and spices, the dominating taste came from the mint leaves making this a wonderfully refreshing drink. The Ganga Tea Crush looks similar to the Pranic, as it is also made with mint, as well as lemon and lime, so it was super refreshing as well! The mango lassi (RM7) was rich, smooth and pretty filling. 

Since we still had some tummy space, we decided to order the chana bhatura (RM8). Excellent decision - we thoroughly enjoyed this - made fresh so it was super crispy and hot, served with a chunky chickpea chole and yogurt masala. Loved this! (Gone in minutes)

Overall we had a great meal, I heard that they do a value for money Sunday Brunch buffet (not sure if it's still RM16 now), will definitely return to check that out!

Pakoras (also known as pakodas), vegetable fritters
