FOOD FOR LIFE

A scoop of healthy Olive Couscous


In response to overwhelming demand from her customers, founder of Woods Macrobiotics June Ka Lim has now opened a brand new café, Woods Bio Marche in the bustling suburb of SS2 Petaling Jaya.

For the uninitiated, the words ‘macro’ means ‘big’ or ‘long’ and ‘bio’ means ‘life’ in Greek so macrobiotics essentially means a ‘long life diet’. The Macrobiotic way believes in eating and living in harmony with nature – food should comprise whole grains and cereals, organic fruits and vegetables, natural seeds, nuts, legumes and other eco-friendly products.


The cheery and streamlined outlet with a simple open kitchen serves organic Japanese, Malay, Indian, Chinese and Western dishes. We were amazed by the versatile selection that was served at the opening bash. If nobody told us the delectable array was meat, dairy and sugar-free, we would be none the wiser!




What a feast! Turmeric-infused Yuba with Sesame (top)
tasted even better accompanied by some Fried Brown Rice Meehoon

The wholesome feast included Organic Tumeric Yuba (bean sticks) with Sesame, Caesar Salad with Vegan Feta, Seeds and Rye Croutons, Fried Organic Brown Rice Vermicelli, Mediterranean Olive Coucous, Green Vegetable Curry and French Toast, Sour Cherry Sliced Cake, and Bread & Butter Pudding.

A selection of organic, vegan and macrobiotic groceries, fresh produce, naturally leavened breads and pastries made without dairy, eggs, butter or trans-fat are also available.


There's no excuse not to eat healthier as offerings are priced from RM3 upwards – perfect for budget-conscious diners on the lookout for healthy and affordable meals. With a seating capacity of 50 seats, Woods Bio Marche is open for brunch, lunch, tea and dinner from 11am to 9.30pm daily except Mondays.
