I last saw Anusha on her 30th birthday.
1.5 years has gone by and I swear she still looks radiantly young with an amazing new bod! And to top it off, she’s in a loving relationship with a really nice guy :) Happy for her!
We decided to meet at Bijan Restaurant in Jalan Ceylon. I’ve subscribed to Tripadvisor which sends me email updates every week on various countries and incidentally that week they sent me a list of restaurants in Malaysia.
Bijan was number 14 out of 735 (and who knew we have that many restaurants in KL) so I picked that after reading positive reviews and checking out their menu.
We started off with popiah goreng and pegedil. Now my husband who has never tried pegedil before absolutely fell in love with it. Pegedil is made of fried potatoes and minced chicken. I have it at work at least 3 times together with my nasi lemak and fried rice because it makes a perfect complement.
Then for the main course, we decided to go with ayam masak merah, masak lemak ikan with belimbing and the mutton rendang.
We’re not usually big fans of Malay fare (with the exception of nasi lemak and nasi goreng kampung, yum!) but what can I say, Bijan offers really good Malay food minus the oil. The fish was extremely fresh while the chicken was boneless (plus point for me!) and very tasty. I don’t eat mutton (for unknown reasons even to me) but the other 3 had nothing but praises about it. Portion of the food is also HUGE!
Best part about this place is that they serve alcohol, well not that I can have any now. It also helps that the place was pretty classy looking for meet ups with friends or for a quiet dinner for two.
The only downside is how they charge RM3 for a plate of rice and RM6 if you want coconut rice!
The bill came up to RM190 of which RM80 alone went towards drinks and rice. But quite frankly, it was quite a scrumptious meal and definitely worth it!
I was quite tempted to try their spiced teh tarik and bandung ice cream but sadly everyone else was full so I decided not to appear like a typical pregnant glutton
So after saying bye to them, the hubby decided to take me to Baskins – always give the pregnant woman what she wants! ALWAYS!
But I’m highly sure not having that spiced teh tarik and bandung ice cream will make a great excuse to go back there with the hubby soon
