Some say, happy people are those that don't ask for much. While others say, happy people are those that have achieved many things in life. Somehow, things are often associated with happiness. There is nothing wrong wanting more in life, there is nothing wrong wanting to be successful and there is definitely nothing wrong wanting to be happy. Wanting doesn't equates to evil. Things, success and happiness are endpoints that we often give too much credits to. What is more important (and often forgotten) is the journey itself. Most of the time, we want to experience unhappiness in order to truly appreciate happiness. We want to experience failure, in order to truly appreciate success and of course we want to experience nothing to truly appreciate something. On the food:
Atmosphere - R.A.W is located @ Wisma Equity (opposite KLCC). If you are looking to go meatless, this is the place to go to for some Real and Wholesome food. The settings of R.A.W is very simple, nothing fancy, just a long counter with a couple of standing stools and some tables behind it. What caught my eyes was the red giant coffee roasting machine - at first I thought it was some ancient cotton candy machine, thank god I did not embarrass myself by ordering a cone of cotton candy.
Menu - The menu is simple with only a few types of sandwiches and bars. If you looking for something very hearty - cereals, bran flakes and muesli would be your best bet. The food prices range from RM7 - RM15. In terms of coffee choice, you will get to order some fancy aeropress or syphon method filter coffees at RM15 each.
The dip platter (RM15) is a trio of pumpkin hummus, chickpea hummus, basil pesto with toasted ciabatta pieces, celery, carrots and cucumber sticks.
This is a toasted rye bread with mushroom and pesto sauce. The bread was fresh and the mushroom pesto sauce was very well balanced. The overall taste was pleasant.
I ordered a Pumpkin Hummus Ciabatta and it was better than the mushroom pesto toastie. The sweet pumpkin was smooth and silky. I can't believe a simple pumpkin hummus combined with some vegetables would yield such tasty sandwich. Kudos to the chef.
Overall - Despite the limited food choices. I was impressed by the amount of flavors it managed to pack in a simple meal. Best of all, it doesn't contain any meat. As for drinks, coffee lovers will thrive there.
Verdict - TOTALLY SMITTEN
