The Ganga Café: Satiate your Gujarati food cravings by dropping by at this homely café that serves a weekly Gujarati buffet that has become the talk of the town in Kuala Lumpur. The khandvi and dhokla, especially, are to die for. The wooden chairs and tables are organised quite neatly on a concrete floor. The minimalism makes this place look spacious. The best part of this restaurant is that it is completely MSG free and is known to use fresh vegetables that are harvested from their own farm without using fertilizers and insecticides. The restaurant completely avoids using processed food, ingredients, and only uses top quality ghee. This was the only restaurant where even after having a heavy breakfast I felt quite light in the stomach.
