Eating healthier has come more naturally to me these days; my father jokes that I’m slowly but surely morphing into my mum. It was my yoga instructor that recommended Fittie Sense to me as I’m supposed to refrain from sinful food after a workout session. Fittie Sense is located in Bangsar Baru and it’s popular with people who care a lot of health and fitness.
Most of their customer base would come after a gym session or a workout class, evident from their apparel and gym bag. I like the chai latte here – it has since become my go-to cuppa when I need a fix. Service is friendly and the staff are ever-ready to make recommendations if you aren’t sure of what to order.
Cajun pan-seared chicken chop (RM28) is the only thing I’ve been ordering so far as it’s packed with flavour and keeps me full till the next meal. I like that it comes with crushed avocado and quinoa, and the fact that it gives me more energy for my workout later in the evening. The chicken chop is nicely seasoned so it’s flavourful with crisp edges – hard to believe it’s healthy food.
I tried a spoon of the lean lamb spiced ragu “Shepherd’s Pie” (RM32), which makes a filling meal. You get savoury minced lamb topped with fluffy mashed sweet potatoes, baked till the top is lightly crusty.
I wasn’t as impressed with their breakfast items as the avocado from their scrambled egg and avocado on toast (RM21) was unripe so it was hard, crunchy and bitter. Not sure if that was intentional but it didn’t go well with the eggs on toast.
Spiced beef kofte in wholemeal pita bread (RM19) was better but it’s nothing to shout about. Portion is fair for this one but I didn’t think the flavours gel nicely. That said, the coconut chia seed pudding (RM19) was tasty and filling enough to keep me satisfied.
Prices are fair considering the portion and quality of food served but contrary to popular belief (from the numerous inquiries on my FB and IG inbox), there are only two things I enjoy at Fittie Sense so far – chai latte and Cajun pan-seared chicken chop.
Food: 6/10 (pork-free)
Verdict: Try the chai latte and chicken chop.
