“Eat more organic food. It’s better for your health.”
“Organic produce tastes so much better.”
These are the few things my mum would try to knock into my stubborn, hard skull. I never really thought much about it, until I started noticing the benefits of organic products, evidently in my complexion. No offence to mum, but I hate what she feeds me at home. But when we go for meals at Country Farm Organics, I hardly ever complain. The food is actually pretty decent here. My favourite of the lot is the Guang Dong Brown-Rice Mee Hoon (RM13.90). It has the consistency almost of a wat tan hor, but not as flavourful and minus the wok hei. The vegetables are sweeter and nicer. Most of my regular readers would know that I’m not a huge fan of vermicelli. I prefer flat rice noodles, but that would defeat the whole purpose of going organic. Brown rice mee hoon is good for you. When I first saw how ‘green’ the Organic Beta Carotene Rice (RM9.90) and Organic Tom Yam Mee Hoon (RM7.90) looked, I almost didn’t want to eat them. I’m glad I did. My mum and sisters like the tom yam mee hoon better, but I prefer the beta carotene rice. Surprisingly flavourful, the rice grains are bigger and firmer. It makes you more satiated. I didn’t care much for the garden sizzling noodle (RM9.90) because I was busy enjoying the other dishes. The gravy was a bit diluted and it was not as tasty as the guang dong noodles.
“Don’t be fussy. Eat up.”
“I’ll get you a membership card so you can come here more often.”
“Finish your oat milk”, said mum.
Sigh, she sometimes forgets I’m not a little girl anymore.
Though it is not the most flavourful of meals, the fact that I’m eating organic food makes me feel good. And I’m not ashamed to admit I like eating here.
Verdict: If you want something wholesome, try this.
