The clams are sautéed gently with olive oil, sundried tomatoes and fresh chilli, and the burst of flavour really packs a punch. It definitely got our web writer, Ashley Ahn’s approval, “I’ve never really liked clams – they’re either always too chewy or overcooked, but I’m definitely on board for this one.” If overcooked clams are things that keep you up late at night, then put those thoughts to rest because believe us when we say there’ll be none of those here.
FRENCH ‘5’ ONION SOUP, RM18.
Made with five kinds of onions, covered with gruyere cheese gratin and crowned with a poached egg, we definitely would sign up another serving of this signature broth, any time.
GRILLED TIGER PRAWN, RM32.
Rum isn’t the only thing making this dish absolutely sinful. The risotto, cooked to perfection with fresh tomatoes and kimchi paste is a testament that the chef has gone beyond perfecting this classic dish; he’s even given it his own Asian twist! Bounty prides itself in using the freshest local ingredients to prepare taste-bud-tingling dishes and the chefs demonstrate it well. The flickers of Oriental flavours in this dish are a nice change from the contemporary European menu, which is probably why we inhaled it right up.
PAN SEARED BARRAMUNDI, RM30.
The best is obviously saved for last. Flambéed with sauternes sweet French wine, the pan-fried fillet of barramundi was crunchy yet light, and very succulent. To those who aren’t big on red meat, this dish is made with you in mind.
