Amazon Vegan in Mont Kiara: Healthier Fast Food in KL
Amazon Vegan is a 100% vegan fast-food option with plant-based burgers, milkshakes, and soft serve. They also have tacos and burritos, but for this adventure, I chose to stick with the burgers, fries, milkshakes, and soft serve.
Yes, I know that just because it’s vegan doesn’t automatically mean it is healthy. But it is indeed a much healthier alternative. Plus, we’re saving the lives of animals and minimising our environmental impacts. If you are looking for vegan food in Malaysia, then this is a must on your to do list!
First Impressions of Amazon Vegan in Mont Kiara
I loved the classic American diner vibe this place has with the red and white colours. It just screams traditional burger joint yet the menu hollers back with its vegan offerings.
Even though being 100% vegan doesn’t mean it’s healthy, I loved the idea of a healthier option that is completely meatless. Everything on the menu is plant-based and low calorie, which is a lot better for you than traditional fast-food options.
I got the combo set which comes with 3 mini burgers and they all looked and smelled very appealing, like burgers made with meat. This set includes 3 flavours – lamb, beef, and chicken, plus it comes with fries and your choice of soft drink.
Amazon Vegan Initial Assessment
I’ll be honest…it kind of freaked me out a bit because it really did taste like meat! And it looked so much like it too. Would you be willing to swap out your beef burger for one that is plant based and tastes almost the same? It’s definitely a no brainer for me!
Everything I got looked like a traditional fast-food order. Read on to find out more about the taste!
The Juicy Details
I have to say all 3 of the mini burgers were delicious. They come with melty vegan cheese, lettuce, and onions. They were a good size to really fill you up too. And really, it’s hard to believe they’re meatless. Amazon Vegan does an excellent job of making it taste like its meaty counterparts.
The fries come with the combo. They were fantastic, nice and crisp, a definite win!
I chose the Rootie which is a healthier soft drink option. It tasted just like Dr. Pepper. You can also choose a thick shake, and for the sake of this review, I grabbed one too. To be honest though, it wasn’t all that good.
The Soft Serve
I finished things up with a vanilla soft serve cone. It looks good, but it tasted healthy which wasn’t what I was hoping for. Next time, I’ll try the coconut and see if it nails the taste with healthy ingredients.
The Wrap Up
Overall, Amazon Vegan is a great option if you want a healthier version of fast food that is better for you and the planet. It tasted great and really hits the spot when you’re craving a burger and fries. I’ll definitely try it out again!
Finding veg food in Malaysia or vegan food in KL used to be extremely tricky. But restaurants like this one are proving that being vegan in Malaysia is becoming easier and more widely accepted. One thing to remember with a plant based diet or a vegan diet, it is better for the majority to do it imperfectly than for the minority to do it perfectly. Even if you aren't plant based or vegan, reducing your meat consumption is always going to be a win win!
