The 39 Restaurant
Come here for a serene, understated cocoon where patrons can escape briefly from life’s daily bustle and linger over a quiet lunch or leisurely dinner of Malay favourites.
Classic Malay dishes with contemporary tweaks take pride of place here. The menu runs the gamut from appetisers such as satay puncak to familiar staples such as rendang.
• The appetiser of cucur 39 or crispy king prawn fritters hits the spot with its balanced crisp and soft textures. Served with tangy peanut sauce and garlic chilli dip, the dish’s modern presentation makes it a visual delight.
• Notable mains worth sampling include ayam golek perchik, East Coast-style grilled chicken basted with an aromatic, creamy-rich blend of coconut milk, ground chillies, herbs and spices.
