Cloud Dreaming

Special thanks to Cloud Dreaming for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Cloud Dreaming is a vegan restaurant at Lebuh Tye Sin, George Town. The eatery is under the same management as Sushi Kitchen. While Sushi Kitchen specializes in Japanese cuisine, Cloud Dreaming focuses on Western dishes like burgers, sandwiches, pasta, soup, salad and cakes.
Cloud Dreaming presents a homely ambience for family dining. A feeing of warmth emanates from its lovely furnishing, while dreamcatchers on the wall give an alluring aura of charm. Numerous potted plants hang from the ventilation shaft, putting one at ease with Mother Nature.
Yippy Sun Soup (RM15.00) is a good way to build appetite from the start. The coulis is blended from carrots, potatoes and cauliflower, and is cooked with a concoction of herbs and spices. Thanks to the natural sweetness of fresh vegetables, the soup is tasty to the last drop. It is accompanied by baguette slices spread with garlic margarine.
Cloud Dreaming Magic Energii Mushroom Burger (RM19.00) is the restaurant's bestselling dish. The burger contains grilled eryngii (oyster) and enoki mushrooms. Vegan mayonnaise is used as dressing. The burger also comes with fries on the side. To ensure freshness, the burger bun is baked in-house. In fact, customers may swap for charcoal bun for RM3.00 more.
Classic Homemade Salsa Bolognese (RM17.00) is a vegetarian take on the traditional Italian dish. The sauce is blended from fresh tomatoes upon ordering, but not prepared ahead of time. This results in a rich sauce with natural flavors of the fruit. The choice of pasta is angel hair (capelli d'angelo), which is cooked al dente to retain its springiness.
Tempeh is an Indonesian soy-based food that is made from fermented soybeans. There are three choices of seasoning: salt (RM10.00), garlic (RM12.00) and curry (RM15.00). The curry version packs a punch of pungency in the mouth. In order to retain chewiness of tempeh, it is recommended to have it cut into bite-size cubes instead of thin slices.
Cloud Dreaming bakes vegan pastries in-house every day. One of the most popular treats is Apple Vanilla (RM12.00). Two layers of cake act as a sandwich for caramelized apples and vegan cream. The vanilla-flavored cake contains organic flaxseeds. It is sweetened with brown sugar in order not to overwhelm the palate.
Cloud Dreaming's recipes reflect its philosophy of using fresh ingredients to bring out the best flavors of food. The vegan restaurant refrains from using any animal products such as milk, eggs and honey. For customers who do not take onions and garlic, these ingredients can be omitted upon request.
Cloud Dreaming not only appeals to lifelong vegetarians, but also to mainstream diners who seek a healthier way of life. Customers who enjoy its pastries can also place orders for whole cakes. Finally, the restaurant is also spacious enough to hold private events.
