Healthy Bowls KL – Six Nourishing Combos

Healthy Bowls

I love fuss-free food that’s as equally delicious as it is nutritious. I find the ease of having all you need in a single bowl highly enticing. What’s more with the environmental cost of single-use packaging, a sole bowl at least minimizes impact. However, some of my favourite places, in addition to providing tasty healthy bowls, also give you a discount if you bring your own container!

Rice Salad – If Only KL

Red rice and butterfly pea flower rice make a vibrant centre for If Only’s Rice Bowl. Dried coconut, torch ginger, crispy rice, green mango, pomelo, bean sprouts, lemongrass, dried prawns, kaffir lime leaf, green string beans, edamame and cucumber surround it. It’s to be mixed together and tossed with the dressing just before serving. Having the ingredients separated gives you the choice of omitting or reducing anything you don’t like or eat. I love, love, love the freshness of it all. The restaurant offers a bold RM5 off your total bill (minimum spend RM30) if you bring your own containers.

Pesto Cauliflower Rice Bowl – La Juiceria Superfoods

I must admit I am a big fan of cauli rice and order it every chance I can. La Juiceria Superfood’s Pesto Cauliflower Rice Bowl (RM 19.90, 350 kcal) is a delicious nutrient-packed bowl. House-made pesto sauce made from fresh herbs and pine nuts season shredded cauliflower along with sautéed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and mixed salad leaves. Get a RM1 discount if you bring your own container.

Keto Nourish Bowl – Yin’s Sourdough Bakery and Cafe

Keto Nourish Bowl (RM 25.45) from Yin’s Sourdough Bakery and Cafe combines cauliflower quinoa rice, cherry tomatoes, fresh lettuce, and Japanese cucumber, topped with a fillet of seabass. Chimichurri sauce is served apart for your own addition. It is just as the name suggests – nourishing.

Healthy Bowls KL – Pad Kra Pow Salad – SpargoEats

Utilizing Malaysia’s very own plant-based meat alternative, Phuture, SpargoEats’ Pad Kra Pow Salad (RM24.90, 510 kcal) is as tasty as it is wholesome. I like to wrap the Phuture mince with cherry tomatoes, carrots, purple cabbage and toasted sesame and peanuts in the lettuce leaves provided. A dash of Hellmann’s roasted sesame dressing tops them off. Be treated to a RM1.50 discount if you bring your own container.

Healthy Bowls KL – Bibimbap – PB Health

The well-loved Korean dish, Bibimbap, also gets a nutritional boost with PB Health’s veg recipe. Stir-fried spinach, bean sprouts, shiitake mushrooms, pickles, cucumber and carrot, are accompanied by a mound of brown rice and a side of gochujang (spicy Korean sauce) and brown rice. PB Healthy doesn’t currently allow you to bring your own containers but their packaging is biodegradable so you can at least chop it up and mix it in your compost.

Rendang Rice Bowl – Lauk Pauk

Although all of the dishes at Lauk Pauk are flavourful and worth repeat orders, the Rendang Rice Bowl (RM21) is my top pick. White rice comes with grilled cauliflower florets and root vegetables topped with flavourful mushroom rendang. Beetroot-pickled egg (awesome), edamame, pickled radish and carrots drizzled with a soy sauce reduction add vibrancy and a seductive tartness to the profile.

Where are your favourite healthy bowls in KL? If you make them yourself, what is your tastiest combo?


  1. “The restaurant offers a bold RM5 off your total bill (minimum spend RM30) if you bring your own containers.” That is very good, very commendable! I cringe at the sight of the rampant use of plastic in many of these food deliveries.

  2. Believe it or not, I too sometimes eat healthy bowls 😛

  3. The rice salad is as colourful as yee sang.
