going organic: opika @ 1utama.

3 Jul 2012 § 1 Comment

Let’s take a break from all that macaron posts and go organic today!

Healthy living seems to be the buzzword these days with organic cafes and restaurant popping up around Klang Valley.

We found ourselves at Opika Organic @ 1 Utama last weekend after hearing some pretty good reviews about it. For some reason, organic food gives me the impression that I’ll be consuming lots of grains, beans and lentils, however reviews of this restaurant are coupled with photos of delicious looking Swedish style meatballs, pasta dishes and nasi ulam with ayam percik!

To be honest, I’m not much of a food blogger – I have a very limited palate and I don’t bother noting down the price of each dish, much less the individual ingredients on the plate. I’m more concerned with how the whole dish tastes, heh! Hence, I’ll let the photos do the talking.

I like the layout of the place – simple decor, spacious with the kitchen right smack in the middle. Very Scandinavian-ish.

Menu

From soups to meat to pasta to local food. I presume the little circles on the left shows the percentage of organic food that makes up the whole dish.

Quinoa salad – this came served with prawns, mango cubes and a slightly spicy sauce

Nordic style prawn salad

Linguine with pan-seared salmon

Braised shitake mushroom and organic chicken, served with brown rice

Confit of chicken with mashed sweet potato

Dessert! Tiramisu (surprisingly good!) and Blackforest with brandy in the background

Overall, I think the salads were really good, and my main dish (braised shitake mushroom and organic chicken with brown rice) was absolutely delicious. The chicken was tender and it had a wholesome, home-cooked taste that went perfectly well with the rice.

Our whole meal which consisted of 2 salads, 5 mains – 2 were not shown here – 2 desserts and 3 drinks amounted to RM280, which I think was pretty alright considering it was an organic restaurant. I definitely won’t mind returning for a second visit on days when I feel like having some light, healthy food!
