Goodness Greens Café
Now that La Juiceria has established itself as one of the city's leading cold-press juice brands, its next mission, apparently, is to promote clean eating with the opening of its first offshoot, Goodness Greens, where you can have vegan-friendly dishes, customisable salads, superfood-packed smoothie bowls and even rice bowls and pastas, alongside the juices that started it all of course. Part of the appeal of Goodness Greens is its customisable salads – and by customisable, we mean you get to pick everything from your base (brown rice, salad leaves, romaine lettuce or warm potatoes) and mains (choose from a long list of proteins, grains, veggies and more) to your topping and dressing. The salads are available in three sizes: petit (RM14.90), medium (RM18.90) and grand (RM23.90); the difference between each is the number of mains and toppings you get to choose – the actual serving size of the dish remains the same, so if you’re content with just four mains, a base and a topping, just go for petit (and use the money you save on Goodness Greens’ other specialities. We'll get to that soon). If you prefer warm meals, order one of the vegan soups (homemade with almond milk instead of cream) available in pumpkin, zucchini, carrot with rosemary and classic mushroom, or get the summer or pesto pasta. For snacks, try not to get too full on GG Dip (spinach and mozzarella dip with baguette slices), and for a light but nutritious breakfast, the açaí berry and dragon fruit smoothie bowls
The team behind Section 17's The Humble Pie Co. have made a notable expansion in the form of Yellow Apron not too far away in PJ's Section 13, breathing some life into the office- and warehouse-dominated street behind Jaya One. On the inside, Yellow Apron fulfils the criteria of today's sought-after cafés (a clean, minimalist interior with plenty of natural light coming in). It's also very spacious, making it a suitable spot for families with young children. Currently, the menu at Yellow Apron features burgers, sandwiches, pastas and even some rice and noodle dishes, with plans of introducing a dinner menu of Malaysian-style tapas (or 'mapas' as they're calling it) soon. In the meantime, standouts include 'The Big Bold Beef Cheese Wasabi Sandwich' (like a roast beef sandwich but with wasabi in a pretzel bun), 'Curry Lamb Bam, Thank You Mam' (lamb shoulder curry with basmati rice), 'The Fantastically Fusion Fried Chicken Burger' (boneless buttermilk chicken thigh with sambal belacan), and 'Dancing Prawns, Swimming Chicken Fried Yee Mee Noodles'. At this point, you should know that Yellow Apron likes long, funny names. Other than black coffee by Papa Pahleta and a selection of teas, Yellow Apron also serves sangria and bottled beers as well as a range of mocktails. For dessert, there are (obviously) pies and cakes by The Humble Pie Co, including its famed banoffee pie and Musang King pie.
Mr. Wolf has brought with it two things PJ needs: A cosy lounge bar, and a stylish restaurant serving Asian fusion cuisine. Its name beckons as you drive along the LDP, plastered on the façade of the building that faces the highway. The ground floor holds the restaurant, clean and spacious, furnished with simple wood furniture. Decoration is kept to a minimum, save for posters with inspirational quotes and quirky images. Tucked in a corner of the restaurant are garden swing chairs – perfect for lounging on. There’s a little window at the back of the restaurant for guests to watch as the kitchen plates up its elegant dishes. Young chef Bryan Tan isn’t afraid to use bold combinations, with pairings like sous vide miso pork loin with apple coleslaw, and the crab ravioli with pickled mango and papaya salad gracing the menu. Though it’s a relatively small menu, it has a solid variety of flavours from their seafood and poultry dishes, cold selections, sides and desserts. The bar upstairs is definitely worth a stop, even if it’s to nibble on snacks like pork skin nachos over a drink. The space is decked out in colours of metallic gold and dark brown, giving off a warm and inviting vibe. Three VIP corners are also available for those who want some privacy. The bar has a wide collection of spirits ranging from whisky, wine, champagne, saké, cider as well as Guinness and Tiger on tap, while the cocktail menu features drinks like the Lady Hound, a combination of tequila, Cointreau tri
