Kubis & Kale Opens in Bandar Sunway with Healthy Poke Bowls
For Poke Bowls and healthy food lovers, this is good news. Kubis & Kale has officially opened its door at Bandar Sunway! The healthy food restaurant is founded by Chef Aaron Lim – pioneer in Malaysia’s poke bowl scene – Kubis & Kale is taking the “Bowl” to greater heights with its healthy “Poke, Cooked Foods & Vegans” In A Bowl.
Kubis & Kale opens at Lot 2&4, Jalan PJS 11/5, Bandar Sunway. It is near the Monash University and Sunway Medical Centre. The restaurant is bright, clean and it feels very comfortable for dining.
This comes timely amidst increasingly unhealthy eating patterns, substantiated by numerous media reports on Malaysia as the fattest country in Asia for the past 3 years. Half of the Malaysian population is overweight, with obesity rapidly growing by 300% in just two years. Reading the statistics making me worry.
To be honest, keeping healthy today is harder than ever. The three pillars of a healthy lifestyle revolve around sleep, exercise and food.
On Kubis & Kale’s menu, poke bowl is still a main staple here. This food craze which has caught on since a couple of years ago looks set to stay. Its appeal lies in eaters being able to customise this Hawaiian-inspired dish over a multitude of bases, ingredients and sauces – with chunks of raw, marinated fish — usually tuna — which is then tossed over rice or soba noodles or quinoa and topped with vegetables and umami-packed sauces.
Here at Kubis & Kale, Aaron has come out with new tastes, ingredients and flavours to bring the poke bowl to the next level by introducing 3 new lines to cater to vegetarian / vegan eaters & healthy eaters:
• Poke Bowl (raw & cooked)
• Cooked dishes
• Vegetarian/vegan superfoods menu
Kubis & Kale takes the “healthy” factor one notch up with unique marinates naturally extracted from fruits and vegetable. Some note-worthy points on Poke (raw/fresh) and superfoods vegetarian/vegan:
• Incorporating more to fresh/chilled items/in house special marination of salmon, tuna, chicken, etc
• will be more of fresh/cooked items
• Offering seasonal menu
• Vegan sauces option
• Will have more vegetarian/vegan option for protein selection
• In-house made sauces
To promote International Vegan Day on November 1, Kubis & Kale announced a “Buy 1 Free 1 promo” from November 1 to 3, 2019 to start the “bowl” rolling for a healthier lifestyle.
Kubis & Kale works closely with local farmers to bring produce from farm to the table for the freshest dining experience.
Kubis & Kale uses carbon veggies as supplied by Agriculture and Urban Regenerative Carbon Farming Experts — Pioneers of Carbon Vegetation (latest farming technology used in Australia and France, first in Malaysia). CarbonVeggie promote green vegetables which are clean and safe, with high nutrition contents, and using carbon regenerative farming method which is chemicide-free, reduces heavy metal, absorbs carbon into soil, odorless and precision farming method.
Dietitian Indra Balatratnam shared on nutrition facts and balancing one’s meals in a bowl for modern living. She said that what you eat in a day can impact your feelings, wellness and health conditions. “Foods can directly lift your moods, help you feel energetic and address the nagging bloated and indigestion feeling in your tummy.
The key of Poke Bowls is the ingredients and the sauces. The mix and match of ingredients is easy but getting the right combination for the taste is hard. We tasted quite a number of the Poke Bowls and they are pretty tasty. If you think healthy food is boring, you might consider visiting Kubis & Kale for their healthy Poke Bowls. Kubis & Kale also offers Vegan meals.
