Bijan is the best place for authentic Malay foodEspecially if you have friends or relatives visiting Malaysia from overseas, Bijan will give them the best experience of Malay food that we have to offerThis is because the restaurant has dishes from Kelantan, Negri Sembilan and Johor. The Chef has also infused his own touch to the dishes so that it is friendly and not as shocking to those who have yet to try Malay food.One of the main dishes to try is the Rendang Beef Short Ribs that is a Kelantan recipeIt is made of hearty chunks of beef that is tender and succulent completely covered with a mildly spicy gravy that goes great with steamed white rice.Another hidden secret is that you must try the Chocolate Durian Cake. It is the best in the world. continue reading

So there I was at Bijan Bar & Restaurant the other day with the good folks from The Entertainer for a night of good food and catch up. I've heard of Bijan before, with a rather good reputation for serving very nice fine Malay cuisine, so when I heard the meet-up would be over dinner here, I was elated. The 3 in 1 platter that served as our appetizers arrived looking really appetizing. I may be biased as I really love satays, and here the beef and chicken satay was done really well without being overcooked, nor too hard. The Cucur Udang wasn't spectacular though, but it came with some nice peanut sauce to dip in.#2 Daging Bungkus KukusBeing part of the opening appetizer platter, Bijan Restaurant's Daging Bungkus Kukus was a unique dish indeed. When I saw the wrapped dish, my first thoughts were of 'otak otak' or some fish wrapped dish. The Daging Bungkus Kukus however was a welcome change to the usual appetizer, where we had these delicate steamed mince meat and herbs wrapped within a layer of pancake and coconut gravy. A great appetizer dish to whet our appetite for more to come. When the Rusuk Panggang was brought out, I must admit the looks did not do justice to it, as it looked really dark to begin with. One bite into the slice of chargrilled marinated short ribs meat, and everything changed. What started off as being a negative perception due to the dark texture, turned immediately to pleasure, as the meat literally melted in my mouth with a few soft bites. Served with pegedil, sweet soy sauce and sambal belacan, this is a must have at Bijan Bar & Restaurant. Tahi what? Well, again the name deterred me initially from the Pucuk Paku Goreng Tahi Minyak dish. But I can tell you, it tasted really nice, the wild fern blending well with the chilli and caramelized coconut. Served with a good amount of shrimps on top, this dish went really well with our plates of rice. Up next was the Rendang Itik dish, juicy and tender deep fried marinated duck legs topped with the aromatic rendang sauce. It was duck, and like its namesake, the meat was a tad too tough for my liking. The rendang was good, but the meat was just a bit too hard. Another signature dish from Bijan Bar & Restaurant was their Ikan Siakap Masak Asam Pedas. Coming from a nyonya family background, asam pedas dishes were the norm when I was growing up. Here, the seabass was simmered in a tangy chilli and tamarind gravy with okra, or asam pedas for short. I did like the taste here, as it was both sour, and spicy enough to tantalize the taste buds. continue reading

So after stuffing ourselves with the scrumptious main dishes, it was time for desserts! Frankly, I didn't even have enough space in my stomach anymore. But I figured I must try out their famous desserts, so the first one presented to us was the Sago Gula MelakaThis reminds me of the Sago pudding at Nosh with the elegant presentation, but unfortunately the taste was not as good. I might be biased because my dinner companions enjoyed this. The next is a platter of sort with Coconut Ice cream, a shot of gula melaka and gula melaka cake.I must say that the coconut ice cream was really tasty and creamy without being overly sweet. The gula melaka was there for us to adjust the level of sweetness. Although half of my dinner companions didn't enjoy the bitter aftertaste of the gula melaka: more for me! The cake was basically a plain cake baked with, you guessed it, gula melaka that you are meant to drizzle that same shot of syrup over if needed. It didn't really wow us. Last but not least, this chocolate beauty bestowed upon us.I was admiring the beautiful chocolate ganache until I took a bite and opened my eyes super-wide. It was a Chocolate Durian Cake! Oh Gosh, second time I broke the rule on the same night. And the lethal combination of chocolate and durian had me reaching out for water for the fear of instant sore throat. The only bite I took was enough to appreciate the richness of the dessert. Durian lovers will definitely get food orgasms from this. Overall, there were some hits and misses during the meal but I can still see why this restaurant has won multiple awards: The service was impeccable, the ambiance was great after the rowdy party guests left and there is a decent wine list. But one visit like this can break your bank, so reserve it for special occasion. Never order the Otak Otak! continue reading

Bijan's menu has both hits and misses, but it's a lovely, lively place to hang out. We ordered the otak-otak recently during a supper stop. This was a definite miss; it seemed to have been microwave-reheated. Both the taste and texture were totally unappealing. The pengat pisang was better; a nice blend of ingredients that wasn't too sweet. Here's one of the perennial hits. The durian cheesecake is always a pleasure; fresh, creamy, moist and rich with the flavour of the fruit. The same adjectives apply for the durian ice cream. Very yummy. Cinta Sejati (white & dark rum, southern comfort, calamansi and soda) and Durian Belanda (vodka, triple sec, soursop and lime juice). Honey Margarita (tequila, triple sec, ginger and honey calamansi) and Tom Yum (vodka, triple sec, lemon juice, chilli and lemongrass). continue reading
