<NO LONGER OPERATIONAL>

————————————–

EGC Green Cafe is new to the vegetarian scene in Penang. The owner is a bike enthusiast, a believer in a healthy whole plant diet and green living. The food serve here is free from preservatives with an emphasis on less oil/salt/sugar aka the 3 deadly combo in the diet of an affluent society.

Auntie Mooi prepares the food daily. No left overs to ensure freshness and the nutrients in the food are in tact. Primarily a lacto-ovo vegetarian cafe with a few vegan items. They cater mostly to the breakfast and lunch crowd due to their hours. There is also a bike rental service, perfect for exploring the history rich enclaves of Georgetown.

The very innovative use of old bikes!

We started with the Thai salad and mushroom soup as we were a little early for lunch.

We ordered the set lunch that came with a choice of soup or vegetable curry. First set – sweet and sour bean patty, stir-fried fresh yuba with vegetables, deep-fried tofu, rice and vegetable curry.

Second set : Stir-fried green beans, stir-fried vegetables with glass noodles, spring roll, rice and vegetable soup.
