One of the few Malay fine dining restaurants around, Bunga Emas offers modern twists to Malay dishes as well as more traditional fare.
The menu has some hits and a few misses. Some dishes don’t match their descriptions although they come up to par taste-wise.
Be sure to order the hot and sour fish soup, which is very well-balanced and comes studded with chunks of catfish. The cashew- and raisin-studded nasi briyani is the perfect foil for the aromatic and piquant braised king prawns in cumin-coriander gravy, pan-fried duck breast in green spiced sauce and lamb rack in curried red pepper sauce with mashed breadfruit and pomegranate chutney. Order the nangka madu, delicious fried honey jackfruit dumpling with zingy coconut chutney and accompanied by pearl sago, honey jackfruit and palm sugar broth.
