Leisure Tea Cafe, Cheras, KL (Vegetarian)

A couple of weeks ago, we visited Leisure Tea Cafe, a stall located in Pusat Penjaja Taman Bukit Anggerik in Cheras, which serves wholly vegetarian cuisine.The menu here consists of vegetarian versions of regular rice and noodle dishes such as curry noodles, asam laksa, chicken rice, nasi lemak, bak kut teh, and Hakka pan mee.

Their signature dish here is the Hakka lei cha, also known as "thunder rice". You may opt for white rice, brown rice or noodles to go with your lei cha (RM6.80 for white rice version, RM7.30 for brown rice version). They operate self-service here, so simply place your order, pay and bring your prepared food to the table to enjoy. The lei cha comes with a basil and mint smoothie (yes, that bowl of green liquid), which you pour over your rice before you enjoy.  The rice bowl itself comes with a variety of vegetables, salted radish, peanuts, tofu and sesame seeds. I instantly felt healthier when I finished my bowl.

On certain days, they do a limited amount of popiah (RM2.50 each) too. The popiah is wrapped in a homemade skin, like a thin crepe and then filled with stir fried turnip, jicama, French beans, carrot, lettuce, sweet sauce and chilli sauce. This was super tasty and we ended up having three portions.

Opening hours: Sun-Thurs 7.30am - 2.30pm; Fri 9am - 2.30pm; Closed on Sat.

Location: Leisure Tea Cafe, Lot 15, Pusat Penjaja Taman Bukit Anggerik, Jalan 34/154, Taman Bukit Anggerik, 56000 Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. (Street parking available)
