Bukit Damansara now has a healthy eats establishment for your #eatclean days. Raisin’ The Roof is located in Plaza Damansara within the same vicinity as Huckleberry, Blue Elephant and The Gaslight Café. Owned by a German, a Thai and a Singaporean, the trio are all advocates of healthy eating, and they set up Raisin' the Roof because of KL's lack of cafés serving organic food.
Although the café aims for a nutritious, meat-free menu with vegan and gluten-free options, none of the dishes sound plain or unappetising (as some would imagine healthy organic food would be). Items on the menu are a mix of brunch dishes, salads, sandwiches, wraps and desserts – yes, even desserts. A standout dish is the brown rice sushi bowl salad, described as deconstructed sushi with avocado, edamame, sautéed spinach, toasted seaweed and pomegranate seeds.
Now on to the dessert counter: You'll be surprised to know that most of the desserts here are of the raw, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options. The café serves up raw orange chocolate cake and key lime cheesecake (and by raw, we mean that the cake isn’t baked and uses raw ingredients – think crusts that are made of dates and pistachios). The purple pecan pie uses gluten-free flour for its crust and has a sweet potato filling topped with oats and pecans, while the bliss balls are a healthier version of chocolate truffles with variations like cranberry, fig and chia seeds, and lemon, coconut, cashew and vanilla.
Raisin' The Roof also stocks a number of organic products you can buy, with plans to have a whole range of healthy food products including granola, spreads, tea, cold-pressed juices and non-dairy milk such as cashew, pistachio and almond milk. They’ve also introduced handy grab-and-go lunch boxes if you’re in a rush.
