So, I'm not one to subscribe to any particular kind of diet. I love food so much that it would be torture for me to stick to one kind of diet all the time.
But of course, I am always open to trying new food. So when the opportunity arose for me to try out a paleo menu at Awesome Canteen, I wasn't going to say no.
Awesome Canteen is one of the few budding cafes in Taman Paramount, one of the older neighbourhoods in PJ.
Owner Raymond Chang says that he sees a good mix of the older crowd as well as the young adults. But the cafe attracts a large CrossFit community in PJ because of its paleo menu.
Paleo-friendly sweet potato fries - RM8.90.
Butterfish (RM26.90) served with alfalfa sprouts and sweet potato wedges is a complete meal on its own.
240 chicken patty (RM24.90) served with avocado salsa, cherry tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts. Definitely one of the most flavourful dishes on the menu.
A classic - 240 beef patty (RM26.90) with onions and sautéed vegetables. Good for heavy meat-eaters and definitely juicy in every bite. All beef used here are grass-fed as the paleo diet doesn't believe in grains.
Paleo banana chocolate cake (made with coconut flour) and a more sinful non-paleo dessert, matcha cake.
Coffee lovers will be delighted to know that they can also indulge in a great cup of coffee here. With milk, too!
For the cold-pressed juice lovers, get your fix of cold-pressed juices for RM12.90 here too.
