Vegetarian trip to Langkawi

Hi folks!

Travelling to any destination for a vegetarian is another adventure on its own.

Before we made our maiden family trip to Langkawi, we've made some survey and found out there's only one pure vegetarian restaurant in Langkawi:

Xin An Vegetarian Cafe
Vegan Restaurant33, Pusat Dagangan Kelana Mas (at opposite EON Bank), Langkawi, 07000
Open Mon-Sun 10:30am-3pm, 6:30-9pm.Cuisine: Vegan, Chinese, Malay, Fast food, Take-out

We've taken dinner, breakfast and lunch at this restaurant. The price is almost the same as the eateries in Kuala Lumpur. So we don't consider it expensive. But don't expect a lot of varieties. So after three meals at this restaurants the kids opted out and asked for waffles, herbal eggs (the kids are still on lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet) and corns in cup which you can find across a street, few shops away from this restaurant.

Note: However, upon checking on google as I am writing this post, there seems to be more than one options(some are not pure vegetarian just has vegetarian as one of the option in their menu!) Do check out more here at Happycow listing.

When we're at Pantai Cenang one night, we found a lovely eatery with excellent service and food called Artisans Pizza (apparently they are quite well-known over there).

Artisans Pizza

Located at Lot 1230, Pantai Cenang, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah
Operating hours: 09:00 - 23:59
Contact details: 012-4771232 (Cenang), 012-5231232 (Kuah), 017-4771232 (Pantai Kok)

We're able to customised vegetarian pizzas there (priced at MYR28 for large pizza). We also ordered magharita pizza, combo salads, local coffee and lemon tea which are all taste fresh and yummy! And most importantly they offer great service (unlike the other eatery who openly asked us not to come as we're too large group for them! sigh...)

Another option (which we did not managed to visit this round is Pappa Rich where you can find vegetarian option in their menu.)
Unit GF 26, Langkawi Fair Shopping Mall 07000

Tel: +604-9660314

If you are staying in an apartment or place with cooking facilities, you can actually buy some groceries at the supermarket to cook some simple meals there. 

We've managed to find a vegetarian food supplier (see the signboard in the picture) where we bought some frozen food to add on to our kon lou noodles, stew rice, asam laksa vegetarian fish, tempe, etc. Quite a yummy feast thanks to our buddies with very good culinary skills!

Sorry that we didn't managed to snap any of the food pictures as it was just too tasty and we're simply famished too!

Till our next updates on our vegetarian meals adventures!
