The makan kaki’s were invited to the official opening cum Chinese New Year lunch at KENCHARA OASIS at Jaya One recently. KECHARA OASIS is a new age vegetarian restaurant which serves international cuisines inspired by Chinese, Tibetan, Vietnamese and Western vegetarian styles.

The restaurant believes in spreading the goodness of the freahest and natural ingredients cooked ina contemporary, fine dining style that gives diners a wholesome and healthy experience, a world-class signature restaurant.

“At Kechara Oasis, we serve only natural and healthy ingredients to our customers. That means we use less sugar, less salt, less oil and less gluten in our dishes. Here we focus on using natural ingredients – vegetables, fruits, spices and etc.” . . . . . enthused Irene Lim, Director of Kechara Oasis Restaurant.

Kechara Oasis Special Yee Sang, this is the first dish we had and Syd’s said it was, . . . delicious, a real taste and aroma of nuts. He would renamed this dish as Loo Sang as there was no fish added. Overall . . . good taste with selection of sauces and full aroma of nuts.
“New-Age” Barbecue Satay Skewers, Syd seemed to find the glutten used was a bit over cooked and end up a bit hard but the coated sauce was delicious and tasty.
Treasure Garden – Stir-Fried Lotus Roots with White Fungus & Shitake Mushrooms, the smell of the mushrooms were aromatic deliteful and the compliment of the crunchy lotus roots enhance the taste of this dish.
Crispy Vietnamese Spring Rolls is interesting, crispy spring roll rolled onto a layer of lecttuce leave with a dash of sweet thai chilli sauce enfused the taste with excellence. Syd likes them and don’t mind having more . .
Vietnamese Longevity Cold Noodles did not jive with Syd, . . . he told me. The noodle was a bit hard and the taste somehow did not blend into the dish well, maybe it was make to taste Viet.
“Catch of the Day” Served with Chef’s Special Assam Gravy . . . . the gravy was excellent, this one did jive. Delicious gravy, very appetising and goes very well with rice.
Chilled Crystal Delights with Sea Coconut with Longan is an interesting combination, the crystal delights was beautifully done and complemented by the sea coconut with Longan.
Jason Lioh, Ken, Andrew, Syd & Joshua at Kechara Oasis. I would defintely like to visit this place to taste their menu soon as I would like to go vegeterian for a day :) . . . . . . I am back fully now, Sunny Yaw

    Vegetarian food can be equally yummy and make us feel healthier by eating it. Next time when I go back, will certainly want to eat some vegetarian food.
