Bijan Bar & Restaurant
3 Jalan Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory, Malaysia
NileGuide Expert tip:
One of the top Malay restaurants in town.
Despite being ultra trendy, Bijan is a very comfortable, unpretentious and unmistakably Malay restaurant that serves wholesome traditional dishes. The interior combines plenty of raw elements – wood, concrete and glass provide the right backdrop for such traditional flavors. Try masak lemak ikan
(fish cooked in coconut broth), rendang
(slow-cooked beef or mutton in coconut and spices), ayam sambal petai
(fried chicken in spicy sauce and stink beans) and cucur udang
(prawn fritters). It is home cooking that brings recipes - handed down over generations - out of grandma's kitchen and into KL's dining scene. Be sure to sample their popular homemade ice cream in local flavors such as creamy durian
cheesecake and pandan
pudding. Their secret is serving top quality dishes using the freshest ingredients combined with a friendly style of service. It's the best spot for an initiation into Malay cuisine.Outdoor dining is available too. The restaurant serves alcohol.
