Awesome Canteen

Modern Paleo menu with a health-food focus.

Local Food Experts: Awesome Canteen - Kuala Lumpur

Encouraging Malaysians to give up rice and noodles might sound like an impossible task, but that hasn’t stopped the Awesome crew preaching the positive powers of the Paleo diet from their Taman Paramount kitchen. The Japanese-inspired menu – salmon sushi, chicken teriyaki – is successfully converting KL-lites one bun-less burger at a time (grilled Portobello mushrooms replace the banned bread). Sitting amid a strip of auto repair shops, the make-do-and-mend mentality shines through in the repurposed picture frame tabletops and retro rotary phones and typewriters, while reclaimed timber lightboxes showcase the founder’s photography skills.
