The Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Penang

Healthy vegetarian and vegan options in the food mecca of Penang

I’m a dedicated vegetarian who makes vegan choices as often as possible. Since arriving in Penang I’ve been so happy to find that this amazing food mecca offers a number of options to meet my needs. In this post I’m sharing my favorite options for vegetarians and vegans in Penang. My journey of documenting these began in September 2017. If you are looking for a great vegetarian restaurant in Penang, please bookmark or pin this page, and come back to it regularly. I’ll be adding vegetarian restaurants and cafes to it one by one.

Because this is a health website I’ve focused mostly on healthy options, that are also very tasty. Throughout the post I’ll share my views on how healthy each choice is and what makes it so. However, if you understand anything about my health and fitness philosophy you’ll know that I’m fond of the 80–20 lifestyle. This means that I’m happy to make less ‘healthy’ choices from time to time in the name of ‘living life’ and enjoying the local cuisine. Again, I’ll share my views on how healthy I perceive each choice to be.

Let’s get started with this Penang food blog! Time to introduce the first vegetarian restaurant in Penang that I highly recommend.

Sushi kitchen

Tucked away on a narrow street in the heart of George Town’s heritage area you’ll find some outstanding Penang vegetarian food. Never have I visited a vegetarian sushi restaurant quite like this. I’ve seen sushi restaurants with variety and presentation to match Sushi Kitchen, but never have I seen a completely vegan option quite like this. I was blown away by how much they offer and how beautifully presented the food is. Let me take you for a peek into this amazing vegetarian restaurant in Penang.

From the moment you see this restaurant, you will appreciate the homely and welcoming vibe. Stepping through the quirky little entrance full of greenery and inspiration, one of the first things you might notice is the right hand wall, completely adorned with hand drawn messages. To the left you’ll see Sushi kitchen’s homemade enzyme supplies, which they use to wash the vegetables. Ahead you’ll notice a bookshelf full of interesting items and a beautifully unique rainbow staircase. From there, you can choose your preferred style of seating and get ready to order some delicious food!
