Goodness Greens Café
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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 are like deconstructed smoothies topped off with all the good stuff (ie, superfoods): desiccated coconut, chia seeds, cacao nibs, bee pollen, granola, and sliced strawberries and bananas.
For drinks, don’t leave without a cup of vegan latte (or ‘vatte’ as it’s called), in which La Juiceria’s Almond Mylk replaces regular milk for a dairy-free cup of Joe. Bonus: If you order in, your coffee is served with a glass of chlorophyll water on the side, which is said to give you a ‘quick boost of hydration’ – as well as a good Instagram shot.
And good news for parents with young children: Goodness Greens has a dedicated kids’ play area; it even has a child-friendly bathroom complete with a diaper changing table.
