Grand Har­bour

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

Hid­den away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Jalan Bukit Bin­tang, Grand Har­bour Restau­rant is lo­cated by the back en­trance of Fahren­heit 88. Decked out in a pri­mar­ily gold pal­ette and Ori­en­tal flour­ishes, the restau­rant basks in plenty of nat­u­ral light from floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows. The space is on the small side but can com­fort­ably ac­com­mo­date big fam­ily gath­er­ings and smaller meet-ups alike.

Packed full of herbs and chunks of fried fish, the pip­ing hot dou­ble steamed tian ma fish head soup is a ro­bust start to a meal. Next is the quail egg and prawn dumplings, which is part of Grand Har­bour's sig­na­ture an­i­mal-shaped dim sum se­lec­tion. With a smooth, bouncy tex­ture, it isn't just cute to look at but also de­li­cious to boot. Com­ple­ment­ing a but­tery, flaky pas­try with a sweet-savoury fill­ing, the honey BBQ pork pas­try is an­other winner. Each bite of the siu mai is springy and burst­ing with savoury flavours while the roe adds a de­light­ful pop.

En­cased in a large bam­boo steamer, the huge por­tion of fried gluti­nous rice stud­ded with pieces of crab is def­i­nitely de­light­ful. Not too sticky and in­fused with the heat of the wok, the rice is the per­fect foil to the sweet, juicy crab meat. The chilled os­man­thus jelly is a pleas­ant way to round off a meal at Grand Har­bour.

Grand Har­bour serves a lim­ited menu of al­co­holic beverages, com­pris­ing only of red and white wines, whiskey and brandy. While their wines cover coun­tries like Aus­tralia, France, Italy, Spain and New Zealand, the se­lec­tion only has between one and four la­bels un­der each coun­try in both cat­e­gories. Un­der liquors, only John Walker & Sons XR 21 and Hen­nessy XO are avail­able.
