You’ll be swaying to Dancing Fish’s rhythm
Being able to bond over food is inherently Southeast Asian in nature. During lunch, we can be planning what’s for dinner – and vice versa. The topic of what to ‘makan’ will crop up at least once in any conversation, especially when you’re in cultural melting pot like Malaysia, where there is a diverse range of cuisines available.
Even during this holy month of Ramadhan, Muslims and non-Muslims alike look forward to trawling the busy bazaars and skimming through dining menus for ‘buka puasa’ – thinking about what they’ll be feasting to break their fast.
In essence, celebrating the holy month of Ramadhan often entails eating good food with good company during break fast. And personally, there’s nothing more satisfying than digging into a selection of delectable ‘lauk’ or dishes – all shared between your family or friends.
A great place to have this experience is Dancing Fish in Bangsar Shopping Centre. This contemporary Malay-Indo dining spot serves up timeless, flavourful classics that will hit the right notes during ‘buka puasa’. Using the freshest and finest ingredients, the restaurant showcases the true unadulterated and uncompromised flavours of Malaysia and Indonesia.
To make the occasion more memorable, the restaurant has prepared a special menu for Ramadhan, aptly named ‘Makan Bersama-sama Dinner Set’. Offering two distinctive menus, a set for 5 – 6 pax and 8 – 10 pax respectively, Dancing Fish serves up a medley of quintessential dishes specially curated to wake up the senses.
From Emping with Sambal Tersai and Chicken Satay with Glass Noodle Salad as appetizers, to Charcoal Grilled Cumi Cumi with Sambal Cencalok and Tahu Telur, there is a widely range of flavours to be had.
A must-have when at the restaurant is its signature Dancing Fish – deep fried to golden crispy perfection. For Ramadhan, the restaurant is offering another rendition of its famed dish, where it is served with homemade thick spicy and sour lemongrass chili paste. Truly a dish to whet the appetite.
Another standout is the Indonesian Dark Beef Soup. At first glance, it looks to be thick and rich, but this braised beef rib soup is so light and flavourful, it will warm up the soul.
Pair all your dishes with its Nasi Wangi Putih or Nasi Kuning Berempah. I’ve been told that combining a bit of both rice variants makes for a wonderful combination of sight and smell.
Finish off your meal with a sweet treat, one that the restaurant calls ‘Manis Manis’. This dessert is a combination of coconut ice cream with red beans, showered with a light coconut milk along with some sprinkling of orange zest and lemongrass jelly.
