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.
If you are looking for Malay Cuisine then head to their classic well known 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.
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?
Hit The Road Jack @ RM 35 : vodka, frangelico, jackfruit, lemon
Kampung Girl @ RM 35 : gin, cucumber, ginger, blue pea flower
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Seabass & Acar Noodles @ RM 43 : Crispy rice crust seabass fillet served with pickled vegetable “noodles”
A clever twist of local infusion with modern dining. Certainly one of my recommended restaurant if you are looking for a unique experience.
