Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently had the pleasure to sample some nice Northern Indian Vegetarian Signatures at WTF, a homey restaurant which is located at Lorong Maarof, Bangsar Park. I admit, the name is quite catchy to me as well. What Tasty Food, or WTF started their business in October 2013 by 3 partners who have all been vegetarians from birth and wanted to make a huge difference in educating people that vegetarian food is not only about leafs.
WTF’s main objectives are to serve MSG free food, no artificial coloring and flavoring, no mock meat, and lastly keeping oil levels low. Detailed thoughts are put into every dish served here; creating a harmonious balance between taste, freshness and presentation perfection, like this Lettuce Roll (RM15), a super healthy, tangy and lightly spiced tofu salad wrapped in lettuce leaves for a crunchy texture.
For a non vegetarian like me, this WTF Bites Platter (RM35) is just nice as a tantalizing introduction. Featuring a variety of starters like Kachori, Hara Bhara Kebab, Paneer Pakora and Samosas, this platter is good enough to share among 3-4 diners.
There’s a lot versions of Kachori (RM8), it can be varied from savoury to sweet depending on the chef’s recipe. Deep fried freshly made pastry till golden brown crunchy, I like the spiced lentils stuffing, very aroma and pleasant to eat without much greasiness.
WTF has an impressive menu featuring 45 different cuisines from Italian to Indian with over 100 dishes. The owners work together with their innovative chefs from India want to prove to people that they can make anything delightfully without meat, like this Tex Mex Burger (RM18) that has a yummy protein packed bean patty.
Paalak Paneer (RM20), a classic vegetarian dish with cottage cheese cubes cooked in a creamy rich spinach gravy.
For those with a penchant for Indian bread, you will be delighted to see a list of selection in their menu, including Chapati, Poori, Tandoori Roti, Paratha, Naan, Kulcha, Bathura, Methi Thepla, Bajra Rotla, Bakhri, and many more. Besides timeless classic choices, chef also put in his creative to create something interesting like this Mixed Vegetable Paratha (RM9) that caught my attention with its colourful presentation.
A popular Indian fried bread, I like how soft and light the texture of this Poori (RM6 for set of two). Best eaten together with the warm side dish, one is definitely not enough for me.
Be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, I just won’t feel jelak with Nasi Lemak. What I’m having here is their Nasi Lemak Sizzler (RM25), the malaysian favourite served with a twist – coconut flavoured rice, mixed vegetables, tofu, cucumber, peanuts, and a very rich chilli gravy.
“All ingredients used in WTF are of a certain quality range. We do not use cheap oil or rejected vegetables, and most spices used in our cuisine are specially imported,” explained chef.
Eggless sizzling Brownie topped with ice cream to satisfy the dessert cravings for vegetarians with a sweet tooth. Freshly baked buns and eggless birthday cakes as well as desserts are available to place orders in advance at WTF.
