Nutmeg, Bangsar Village II, (Bangsar) $$ 14/20

Hello Allergicky Friends,

Yesterday I discovered yet another dress-down but allergy aware cafe in Bangsar Village mall. It’s called “Nutmeg” and it’s tucked away on the second level of Village II. The staff, mostly foreign, were not as aware of allergies as waitstaff are at more upscale places, but they did their best to accommodate.

It’s a brunchy place with Western food like all-day breakfasts and salads. While I didn’t have much that was savoury (I had the hand-cut potato cubes – gluten-free and fairly unremarkable), I did have a fantastic dessert: “the hazelnut meringue cake.” It’s gorgeous. Light, fluffy, and so tasty! It’s very rich though, and my two friends and I reached an “elegant sufficiency” after a few bites.

They had three gluten-free items on offer that day: the hazelnut meringue, the blueberry cheesecake and an orange cake (which the waiter was strongly touting!).

Go check it out!

Dear Friends,

Many of you have probably heard of the Paleolithic or Caveman diet. It came to life around the time of the Atkins, which advocates similar eating plans (less the dairy).You’ll find a wealth of information online, if you just look it up!

Wonderfully, the Paleo diet is also gluten-free! So it’s no wonder that the newly opened Paleolicious in Desa Sri Hartamas has been a favorite of mine recently. Not only are the waitstaff so kind and helpful, the food is AMAZING! I could literally order anything on the menu (when does that *ever* happen to me??!!). Freedom of worry is freedom indeed.

Check out their website here, and go wild at their place! Special mention: they also have wild caught salmon from Norway at the most affordable price I’ve seen in these parts.


Amazing coffee with con
My favorities at Paleolicious: Bullet Coffee with coconut oil (delicious, and prevents the crash!) and Chocolate Banana Cake (mimics the texture of real, luscious banana chocolate cake, less the sugar!)
