Bijan Bar & Restaurant

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

We decided to go for something a little different the past Valentine’s dinner, so we paid a visit to Bijan for some fine Malay cuisine.

Bijan Bar & Restaurant
Located on Jalan Ceylon in Kuala Lumpur, the restaurant was easy enough to find, though parking was not very convenient. We got there quite a bit earlier than our reservation, but we were attended to by the friendly staff who showed us to our table.

Bijan Bar & Restaurant
The restaurant was set up perfectly that day. The setting was romantic and the restaurant dimly lit. Rose petals littered the floor which accentuated the Valentine’s occasion.

Cucur Bijan, Bijan Bar & Restaurant
We started off with the Cucur Bijan for RM10. This was made up of crisp-fried vegetable fritters of tofu, sweet potato, tempe matchsticks with bean sprouts and spring onions. Served with Bijan’s homemade peanut and chilli sauce, this crunchy treat was an appetising start to our meal!

Sotong Hitam Manis, Bijan Bar & Restaurant
We ordered several dishes to be eaten with rice. One of it was the Sotong Hitam Manis, priced at RM32. Cooked with chilli paste, lemongrass and squid ink, this dish was dark in appearance. While it may not look like the most appealing thing around, don’t let that fool you. The best way to describe it would be like a more refined ‘sambal sotong’. Delicious and spicy, we liked this dish a lot!

Rendang Itik Bijan, Bijan Bar & Restaurant
Another dish we had was the Rendang Itik Bijan. For RM58, we were served a juicy and deep-fried marinated duck leg topped with Bijan’s aromatic rending sauce. Think duck confit with rending sauce, but done to perfection. The duck was tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Coupled with a quality rendang sauce, we found this dish to be really enjoyable with rice!

Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak, Bijan Bar & Restaurant
Our vegetable of the day was the Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak, priced at RM18. The wild fern here was stir-fried with chilli, caramelised coconut and shrimp. The result was a savoury dish with just a little hint of sweetness. This was one of our favourites that night.

Quality food with a romantic setting, we couldn’t have asked for more for a nice Valentine’s dinner. It is no wonder why Bijan is one of the leading restaurants when it comes to Malay fine dining. More information on the restaurant’s menu and contact details can be found on its website.

I’ve been meaning to try this place for some time now. I guess it seems hard to pay so much for Malay cuisine as it is so cheap and excellent on the street.

Yes, I agree with The Yum List. Warung food is cheap, so I’m less keen on paying more than RM50 per person for Malay cuisine.

ai wei: Yessss and it was delicious! =D

Rebecca: Unfortunately, we skipped dessert. However, they do sound very attractive!

The Yum List: That was also the reason why it took us so long to try Bijan, but since it was a special occasion for us, we thought it was worth it!

Bangsar Babe: Indeed, however a treat is good once in a while. The food turned out good and we had a very nice time together. So we’re happy and it was worth the price.

Choi Yen: Not the most appealing name around, but it tasted good! haha
