The Launch of Kubis & Kale at Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya

Just a couple of weeks ago, Kubis & Kale has opened its door in Bandar Sunway, Petaling Jaya. Located close to Monash University and Sunway University, the place is definitely a great place for students to enjoy the delicious and healthy poke bowl. Kubis & Kale is a destination for simple, seasonal, healthy food. 

A variety of poke bowl choices are available at Kubis & Kale

Founded by Chef Aaron Lim - pioneer in Malaysia’s poke bowl scene - Kubis & Kale is taking the “Bowl” to greater heights with its healthy “Poke, Cooked Foods & Vegans” In A Bowl. They believe the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared have a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities and the environment.

Chef Aaron Lim, the founder of Kubis & Kale is seen scooping in the ingredients into the bowl during the poke bowl demonstration.

This comes timely amidst increasingly unhealthy eating patterns, substantiated by numerous media reports on Malaysia as the fattest country in Asia for the past 3 years. Half of the Malaysian population is overweight, with obesity rapidly growing by 300% in just two years. 

Keeping healthy today is harder than ever. The three pillars of a healthy lifestyle revolve around sleep, exercise and food. Hippocrates’ famous quote about “letting food be your medicine and your medicine your food” holds truer than ever, especially in modern-day living where it’s a challenge to eat healthy or on time due to our hectic lifestyles. It does not help that there’s a misperception that healthy foods are boring or bland, and we do tend to choose food based on how attractive or “instagrammable” they are now. 

The comfortable and spacious interior of Kubis & Kale

According to Aaron, Kubis & Kale is a venue for simple, seasonal, healthy food. “We emphasise on the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared. Our philosophy is cooking from scratch by using whole seasonal ingredients, forming and working with a community our farmers, suppliers & communities who support and advocate real food,” enthused Aaron. 

We strive to make eating well easy, accessible and affordable. It’s no fuss-eating here as patrons could easily order to a healthy range of healthy bowls amidst a minimalistic but comfortable therapeutic green ambience. “We cater to light and green-eating with smidgens of meat for those who still prefers meats. Our dishes are very attractive to cater to a whole new generation of social media users. We’d like to think we are highly trendy but firmly rooted in the core of healthy eating,” quipped Aaron. 

On Kubis & Kale’s menu, poke bowl is still a main staple here. This food craze which has caught on since a couple of years ago looks set to stay. Its appeal lies in eaters being able to customise this Hawaiian-inspired dish over a multitude of bases, ingredients and sauces – with chunks of raw, marinated fish — usually tuna — which is then tossed over rice or soba noodles or quinoa and topped with vegetables and umami-packed sauces. 

A wide selections of poke bowl ingredients to choose from! 

Aaron has come out with new tastes, ingredients and flavours to bring the poke bowl to the next level by introducing 3 new lines to cater to vegetarian / vegan eaters & healthy eaters at Kubis & Kale and they are:-

• Poke Bowl (raw & cooked) 
• Cooked dishes 
• Vegetarian/vegan superfoods menu 

Kubis & Kale takes the “healthy” factor one notch up with unique marinates naturally extracted from fruits and vegetable. Some note-worthy points on Poke (raw/fresh) and superfoods vegetarian/vegan:-

• Incorporating more to fresh/chilled items/in house special marination of salmon, tuna, chicken, etc 
• will be more of fresh/cooked items 
• Offering seasonal menu 
• Vegan sauces option 
• Will have more vegetarian/vegan option for protein selection 
• In-house made sauces (Chimichurri, Mango Mustard, Green Apple Hot Sauce, Ghost Sauce, Pesto Vinaigrette, Red Pepper, Pineapple Sauce, Roasted Ginger and Garlic Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

Some of the poke bowl that are available at Kubis & Kale as below:-

To promote International Vegan Day on November 1, Kubis & Kale announced a “Buy 1 Free 1 promo” from November 1 to 3, 2019 to start the “bowl” rolling for a healthier lifestyle. That's awesome! :D

Who say healthy food can't be delicious and must be expensive? Not in Kubis & Kale...

Kubis & Kale uses carbon veggies as supplied by Agriculture and Urban Regenerative Carbon Farming Experts – Pioneers of Carbon Vegetation (latest farming technology used in Australia and France, first in Malaysia). CarbonVeggie promote green vegetables which are clean and safe, with high nutrition contents, and using carbon regenerative farming method which is chemicide-free, reduces heavy metal, absorbs carbon into soil, odourless and precision farming method. 


Dietitian Indra Balatratnam shared on nutrition facts and balancing one’s meals in a bowl for modern living. She said that what you eat in a day can impact your feelings, wellness and health conditions. “Foods can directly lift your moods, help you feel energetic and address the nagging bloated and indigestion feeling in your tummy. 

“For busy people who find it a challenge to eat a healthy meal, poke bowl offers them a chance to mix and match a variety of ingredients such a leans protein, beans, colourful vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains to make up an endless combination of refreshing ingredients combinations for their meals. It's so convenient, has most of the key nutrition you need and so trendy to eat it all in bowl to stay within the proper portion of food you need,” explained Indra. 

Their ingredients were really fresh and I love the Chimicuri sauce. Also I find that their prices are actually quite affordable starting at RM15.90. You have to try their healthy juices that starts from RM4.90, cheap and delicious too! :D
