Kolma

Who says you can't have fun while eating healthy and ethically?

Langkawi's first fully plant-based restaurant, Kolma uses pure, mostly locally-sourced ingredients to make vegan-friendly bread, cheese, mayonnaise, and other tasty sauces and sides.

These homemade ingredients come together to form flavor-packed bagels, burrito bowls, sushi bowls, nacho bowls, and more. If your more of a brunch lover, try a colorful smoothie bowl with handcrafted granola in flavors like papaya and mango.

Rotating special menu items include vegan takes on classic meals like burgers, sloppy joes, gyros, and mac & cheese. Drinks are made fresh too with hand-brewed coffee, hot cocoa or chai lattes, iced tea, and freshly squeezed juice blends.

There are always cheesecakes, bliss balls, and a selection of other sweet treats like banana bread, apple strudel, brownies, vegan tiramisu, and vegan donuts. Decedent birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, or just-because cakes can also be made as special orders, given a few days' notice.

Don't forget to look out the back where talented owner, Julia, has set up a vintage thrift store. You can also purchase reusable metal straws and handmade ceramics and rattan bags from Kolma.

Backstory

Kolma bravely opened its doors in July 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Innovative owners Julia and Taufiq adapted quickly, switching to delivery-only orders when required by lockdown conditions.

Despite the early struggle, they created an inviting restaurant space inside a renovated traditional Malay house in Pantai Tengah. Customers are always greeted with a friendly smile, speedy service, and delicious, wholesome food.
