One prominent champion of this culinary approach is Farm to Plate – a rustic, fun eatery which has become well known for its hearty fare using fresh and seasonal ingredients cooked with an emphasis on family-style, affordable dining. Based in Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya, the eatery lives true to its name with a focus on produce-driven cuisine showcasing the best ingredients directly from local farms in their purest forms and flavours, to its kitchen, before making its way onto its diners’ plates.
Soon, diners at Farm to Plate can look forward something refreshingly unique and exciting, thanks to the eatery’s collaboration with Plantonic, recently launched in Malaysia which gained prominence for creating the world’s first 4-in-1 plant-fertilising tonic. The elixir is designed to be a non-toxic fertiliser and soil revitaliser, which also serves as a natural pest repellent, while preventing fungal infections, and boosting plant immunity, all with one product, using all-natural ingredients - a common trait shared with Farm to Plate.
The two entities have come together to create the Farm to Plate x Plantonic Menu – the eatery’s first all-natural plant-based tasting menu which will feature at Farm to Plate for a limited time for two weeks, from 22 to 25 November 2021 (week 1), and from 29 November to 2 December 2021 (week 2).
Available only via pre-order (a day's notice) and limited to 30 covers per week, the specially curated 9-course menu featuring a myriad of tastes and flavours that are as natural and nutritious as they are delicious.
Pre-orders and bookings for the Farm to Plate x Plantonic Menu can be made by contacting Farm to Plate at 018 268 2333.
“It has been a truly exciting and fun process developing this menu, which we are confident that our guests will enjoy, regardless if they are seasonal plant-based eaters or otherwise. Every menu item has been carefully curated to ultimately complement each other, resulting in a dining experience quite unlike any other. More importantly, it demonstrates ever so effectively that food – good and nutritious food – can be delicious. We avoid using heavy sauces to mask the fresh and natural flavours of the ingredients, staying true to our motto: Simply Served, Fresh Ingredients or #SSFI. We would like to thank Plantonic for this amazing opportunity to collaborate with a brand that shares the same ethos of using fresh and all-natural products as we do,” said Farm to Plate’s owner, Chris Chew, who also owns a restaurant called Le Sense at Damansara Kim.
Meanwhile, Eric Tan, CEO and Founder of Plantonic said that the collaboration marked the first time the brand has worked with a restaurant partner and that they will be giving away one 500ml bottle of Plantonic with each cover ordered of the Farm to Plate x Plantonic Menu.
Packaged in a handy spray bottle, Plantonic is a convenient way of ensuring plants receive all necessary nutrients to grow well. With a healthy spritz once a week for smaller houseplants, and twice a week for larger ones, the product gives users a hassle-free method of tending to their plants.
