WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Southeast Asia -

Quirky name aside, this is the go-to es­tab­lish­ment for ap­petis­ing, au­then­tic Malay-indo com­fort food.

Guests are typ­i­cally greeted with the emp­ing with sam­bal terasi, a crispy ap­pe­tiser made from nutty and slightly bit­ter­tast­ing melinjo nuts.

Af­ter that, it’s show time with the main star – the highly In­sta­gram wor­thy tit­u­lar danc­ing fish (nila goreng). The dish is an aes­thetic dis­play of a twisted fish that’s deep-fried to per­fec­tion. Guests can opt for dif­fer­ent ac­com­pa­ni­ments such as the sam­bal terasi and ki­cap, masam ke­dong­dong pedas, mango ker­abu, be­limb­ing salad or tangy acar to team up with the fresh and crunchy fish.

An­other meat dish not-to-be-missed is the be­bek goreng Bali (crispy duck). Crispy on the out­side and suc­cu­lent within, the flavour­ful taste of the meat is a prod­uct of the restau­rant’s spe­cial mix of Ba­li­nese herbs and spices mar­i­nat­ing the duck for 24 hours.

Danc­ing Fish’s sig­na­ture desserts are the re­fresh­ing ice ka­cang and cen­dol, but opt for the caramelised ba­nanas with palm sugar and ice cream if you wish for some­thing dif­fer­ent to com­plete your meal.
