Among many of my friends that have visited De Wan 1958 by Chef Wan at The Linc, KL indeed gave a good review and thumbs up for this place, till recently I get to try along for a private function. No doubt it is indeed serve pretty good Malay cuisine.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan

I was here on weekdays so was told the crowd is not huge and it is pretty full house over the weekend. It is highly advisable to make a reservation before you come. This is to avoid any private functions that they have too.

Curious about their menu and price (click here)

Best of all, they have private dining room available that can sit up to 10 pax.

As the food was serve, the smell of those spicies and curies instantly makes me hungry.

Cucur Udang is classic street food and it is done right. Dipping with both satay and chili sauce is just perfect.

de wan by chef wan

Starting off with a classic dish – Pucuk Paku that is cook to perfection. Not too soft yet I can still bite slight crunchy texture of the veggie and sqeezing a bit of limau indeed enhance the flavour.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (5)

Udang Kari Hijau Telur Masin is indeed one of the highlight for the night. Prawn is fresh and big. Sauce is sticky with a bit of twist. Hint of chili skin after taste and the telur masin not overpowering yet goes very well with the whole flavour.

you will never go wrong with dishes that is bakar. The only thing is the ingredient must be fresh. Jumbo Sotong Bakar with Sambal Colik is indeed spot on. Ia mixture like of Indonesia x local malay taste infuse for the sauces.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (8)

We got serve with 2 types of rice and it is recommended.

  1. Nasi Lemuni Berseri Perlils
  2. Nasi Telur Terrenganu

de.wan

For curries they serve Daging Rendang Selangor. Spices are mix well and with the right amout, every one have their own version of curries recipe and I find it is qood.

Some will be stronger in spices, some is stronger in spicy but I like this. Both balance of spices and mild spicy, that can easily goes well with your rice.

the linc kl

Ayam Masak Merah Chef Wan  is abit more solid. Slightly strong in spicy end with mild sweetness. Chicken is soft and juicy.

This is the first time I am having Umbut Kelapa Lemak Solok Lada. I find the taste is quite interesting. cook with a kind of noodle in it and I think those of you have never try before, I believe it is a dish worth to explore.

It has been a while since I last dine in an upscale restaurant where MCO just took our 2 years away. I have seen alot influencers in this casual dining resturant in KL known as Blackbyrd KL in Naza Tower which is just a stone throw away from KLCC Petronas Twin Tower or in this area Platinum Park KL.

Blackbyrd KL

It was special treat for me on my special day, was just brought here to enjoy the view, ambiance, food and drinks. Just head all the way up to 55th Floor if I remember correctly.

We are here for early bird as it is still so called “endemic” reservations are divided into 2 sessions. 6-8pm / 8pm till late.

  1. if you choose early session and if you are lucky, you get to see sunset

Dining area are divided into 2, as I was seated in both dining and bar area. I would say you enjoy early dinner then you move to the cocktail bar after 8pm to continue your chilling at the counter or high spender table with the perfect view.

Blackbyrd KL menu 2022

I guess to our sheer luck as this would be their new menu of 2022 and was told that what we previously wanted to order is no longer available and it seems that they have new head chef on board.

after looking at the menu, Blackbyrd food seems more like fusion with towards Asian, Indonesian local inspired cuisine. Of course there are a few items that caught my attention.

Blackbyrd signature dish

This is Blackbyrd all time signature: Crispy Nori Crunch @ RM 29 – tempura nori seaweed, spicy salmon, salmon roe and parmeson cheese.

20220218_185313

Nicely presented that have colour to it, however I find that it lacks of flavours. Cripsy inside out with a bit of saltiness from fish roe and hint of parmesan.

Of course by name itself, I imagine it sounds simple that caught my attention. Truffle Tagliolini @ RM 59 – fresh truffle and truffle butter.

truffle spaghetti

Upon serving, the smell of truffle is already pretty strong. Topped with 4-5 thin slices of fresh  fresh truffle to make it look more solid. Taste is indeed spot on. Creamy to my liking with a punch of Pretty strong truffle taste. Felt that tagliolini is made fresh with cook to perfection. Slight chewy and al-dante – recommended

truffle

indonesian inspired food

After staring for a long while, nothing that caught my attention as I find the rest are quite normal. So I pick something familiar to me. Iga Bakar Sambal Idjo @ RM 145 – Black Angus Short Ribs MB 2, green chili, gurih Rice.

This is certainly one of a atas Indonesian or Balinese kind of food. Flavours are pretty spot on as I just find that the Sambal could be spicier like the one I had in both Jakarta and Bali. Black Angus ribs is marinated and cook well . Certainly do have the taste of atas Indonesian street food version.

bali food

risotto

Since I have heard Gordan Ramsey or some cooking show keep using saffron. Originally was suppose to go with King Prawn Saffron Risotto and it was not available. Changed to this Rendang Saffron Risotto (If i remember correctly  which is special of the day)

Risotto is spot on. I have not tasted Saffron before so do not know how to describe.  First time doing this Rendang and risotto apparently the taste seems to blends well.

restaurant for birthday celebration

Was here for my Birthday celebration in Mid February 2022.

Blackbyrd night view

This is the night view of Blackbyrd Skybar KLCC view.

Overall, If we guess correct as since most of the dishes wanted to order on that day menu no longer available and assuming the chef just reported, with its cooking I am impress.

If you are in the mood for atas ambiance dining or for celebration with Asian inspired food flavour with KLCC view then can consider here as one of the options.

About a month ago when I was at Pavilion KL, then saw this long queue in this new Taiwanese bubble milk tea shop Chicha San Chen which apparently from Taiwan. this is like a cafe, as you walk towards near the shop, you will smell strong scent of fresh brew tea.

Looking at the queue and the smell is good, we decided to give it a try too. Start queuing. It seems the que is long because alot people in the line like me. We are not sure what to order as everything seems unique. You can even customize your own tea drink too.

Upon orders, they will weigh the tea leave then put it into this extractor like coffee machine to extract concentrated tea.

As good as the tea gets, could this be perhaps one of the best bubble milk tea shop in KL? I presume this is quite expensive and although I love the strong tea taste but it seems for me will be one time off.

Local inspired food with a twist. Where can you actually find that in modern dining. It was a recent discovery for me that Bijan at Changkat Bukit Bintang is actually a well known Malay restaurant visited by many. With the success of this, they have expended it next door with SPG by Bijan. A twist of Malay Tapas and Light Bites and specialize cocktails with local infusion.

bar in changkat bukit bintang

If you are looking for Malay Cuisine then head to their classic well known Bijan.

spg by bijan

Certainly inlove with their ambiance. It reminds me of like when I am in Bali. Casual sitting area with fan and neon purple as background and classic mosaic bar is indeed a perfect place for gathering.

spg by bijan (5)

Their cocktail series is indeed a bomb. Not your usual classic that you get in cocktail bar but it is indeed with local flavours infusion.  Believe that one of a unique cocktail in Changkat Bukit Bintang?

spg by bijan (6)

Hit The Road Jack @ RM 35 : vodka, frangelico, jackfruit, lemon

spg by bijan (7)

Kampung Girl @ RM 35 : gin, cucumber, ginger, blue pea flower

spg by bijan (8)

One of the local inspired cocktail is :Petai Cocktail. YUP! PETAI! Stinkini @ RM 35 pickled petai, gin, vermouth. I was like whatttt.???!!! Decided to give it a try and it blew me away. I am not a fan of petai but this cocktail is another level. A well balance of mix with hint of fermented petai that brings the aroma right at the end. PERFECT PERFECT! – Recommneded!

Blur Like Sotomg @ RM 42 : Spicy squid ink sambal tumis, anchovies, petai, mozzarella & coriander. One of my favourite for the night as a well nice mixture of flavor. not the usual Italian classic. A clever combination that brings all the flavour subtle.

spg by bijan (13)

Or Chien San @ RM 22 : It’s SPG’s or chien meets okonomiyaki. Fried oyster omelette, miso chili sauce, aioli, bonito flake & sesame. Topped with fresh oyster and omelet is done right. Bonito flakes adds a layer of smokey flavour into it.

spg by bijan (14)

One of the iconic entry for the menu is : Ah Ran Sini @ RM 25 Nasi Lemak flavours stuffed into rice balls & deep fried for deliciousness, served with anchovy mayo

spg by bijan (15)

Lamb Dumplings @ RM 16 : Lamb & Chinese parsley dumplings served with black vinegar, shrimp chili oil. First time having dumpling made with lamb. Lamb is soft and chili shirmp is a great pairing.

spg by bijan (16)

Duck Curry Bun @ RM 29 : Baked Keralan duck curry in a bun.  Extra bread for dipping +5. Second favourite of the night is this unique dish for me. Duck curry bun that had done to perfection. Fluffy bun dip into the bread is just perfect. With its hint of tumeric and duck meat cook to its softness.

spg by bijan (17)

spg by bijan (18)

Spring Chicken Diavola @ RM 32 : Spicy roast spring chicken diavola-style with baby potato confit & sautéed vegetables.  A perfect plate to share as it fits well with beer as it is punch with spices.

spg by bijan (20)

Seabass & Acar Noodles @ RM 43  : Crispy rice crust seabass fillet served with pickled vegetable “noodles”

bijan

A clever twist of local infusion with modern dining. Certainly one of my recommended restaurant if you are looking for a unique experience.
