1/ Grilled Lamb Rack
PLOY’s signature Grilled Lamb Rack was my favorite dish of the day! The pieces of flame-grilled New Zealand lamb were presented nicely along with potato gratin, fresh zucchini and tomato salad with a touch of the aromatic and spicy house-made Thai pesto. Just the look itself had already whetted my appetite! To my expectation, the meat was well-cooked with a smoky taste and tender goodness! Delightful in every bite!

2/ Seared Salmon Nigiri (3 pcs)
The next dish, Seared Salmon Nigiri (3 pcs), was so eye-catching that one would hardly resist. 3 pieces of the high-quality salmon were skilfully torched before being topped with delectable fish roes and special mayo sauce. Their sleek and elegant look immediately got my mouth watered. Melt-in-the-mouth and packed with flavors, the signature dish was a lip-smacking treat for my taste buds!

The last dish that you should keep an eye on is the signature Black Rice! Added with the squid ink, the rice had a unique appearance that would gratify any adventurous foodies. The dish was embellished with seafood, Thai sweet basil and egg yolk perched on top. The rice was excellently seasoned with a briny taste from the fresh seafood and mixed nicely with the egg yolk, making it a tantalizing indulgence.

I was thrilled to have a catch up with my friends here last week and of course, I took this opportunity to find out the most-loved delicacies here!
1/ Lamb Koftas + Original Jungle Bird
I couldn’t refrain from the temptation to try the world-famous Original Jungle Bird cocktail. Curated back in the ’70s, this invention has helped put Malaysian cocktail culture on the world map and it is definitely something you would not want to miss out! The drink got my total attention as the liquor elegantly put inside the hollowed-out calamari was lit up, exuding an irresistible fragrance along with the aromatic pineapple slice perched on top. This to-die-for cocktail was incredibly rejuvenating and perfectly paired with the tantalizing Lamb Koftas with Tahini Dressing. The tender lamb meat went well with the nutty Tahini sauce, making it a pleasure in every bite.
The Spicy Falafel + Aviary Tales is something you should keep an eye on! The chef’s signature Spicy Falafel excited my taste buds with a kick thanks to the chili hummus. Grainy and crispy on the outside yet soft and mushy on the inside, this delicacy had my heart skipped a beat! While the taste of the Spicy Falafel was still lingering, I took a sip of the Aviary Tales. Its delicate cucumber taste with a sour note from the lemon juice and the unique flavor from the pineapple juice was refreshing, lip-smackingly complemented the Spicy Falafel. Definitely a combination that never fails to impress.
The final delight is equally impressive which features Prawn Tempura and Malaysian Mule cocktail. The Australian-imported freshwater prawns were coated in an ultralight batter which made them crispy and airy, not to mention their soul-satisfying sweetness. The signature cocktail Malaysian Mule was packed with flavors which mainly came from the fresh lemongrass and kaffir lime juice accompanied with a crisp taste and tangy aroma from the ginger beer. An incredible indulgence for a relaxing day!

As an avid fan of Old Malaya, I was excited when my friend invited me to Pier 12 Seafood Tavern. Of course, I didn’t miss out this chance to get to know the 3 much-loved dishes here!
1/ Garlic Chilli Crab
The first dish, Garlic Chilli Crab, was presented unpretentiously with a whole crab in garlic and chili oil yet enough to trigger my involuntary salivation. The dish exuded distinct flavors thanks to its fusion blend of Spanish olive oil, garlic, chili flakes and a hint of Japanese soy sauce. I dipped the Chinese mantou served along into the sauce to soak up all the goodness from this dish while relishing the fresh and flavorsome meat of the nicely-cooked crab. The dish is definitely something you should keep an eye on!
Next comes the Tandoori Flavored Halibut Fish Fillet, another dish with its flavors do all the talking! Imported all the way from Spain, the Halibut Fish Fillet is well-seasoned with fine spices and pan-fried until perfection. The moist yet firm flesh was enough to satiate my palate, not to mention its unique taste that made the dish totally drool-worthy. Served with the homemade cucumber raite, this aromatic tandoori delight is simply irresistible.
The final dish that got my attention was this Poached Butter Fish Medallions. Stuffed with spinach and mushroom, the fish was meticulously poached until it reached the perfect tenderness yet not flaky at all. I had to give it up to the chef as it would require great cooking skills to maintain the texture of this delicate fish. A touch of the red bell pepper sauce was added and it totally enhanced the toothsome poached fish. A dish that would make you come back for more!

1/ Wagyu Tataki
If you can’t decide whether to have a dish of tasty sashimi or to chow down on succulent steaks, Wagyu Tataki will offer you the best of both worlds! The Japanese-styled delight was prepared by briefly searing thin pieces of gorgeous-marbled Australian Wagyu beef before topping these enthralling slices of meat with ponzu vinegar, grated radish and garlic flakes. I love the combination of the rich-flavored Wagyu beef with the ponzu vinegar as this citrus-based sauce balanced the heavy taste of the beef. Melt-in-the-mouth and flavorful yet not too heavy, this dish is a perfect start for a wholesome meal!
What’s better than gratifying your palate with delectable salmon in 3 ways? If you are salmon lovers, don’t miss out this signature Salmon Trio. The dish is a combination of sashimi, sushi and reverse maki rolls of 4 pieces each, featuring high-quality salmon. I was overwhelmed when the dish was presented as its appearance alone was enough to whet my appetite. While the sashimi melted my heart with its tenderness, the sushi and maki rolls excited my taste buds for the subtle and refreshing taste. This dish is a splendid choice for those who love a taste of everything.
The Sakura Course would be everything a Japanese cuisine fan could ask for! This signature 7-course Omakase meal focuses on the spirit of “leave it to the chef” with dishes curated based on seasonal items.
My meal started with Crab Meat with Vinaigrette Jelly and Fresh Vegetables which was rejuvenating and exciting. The next dish – Prawn Ball Clear Soup, surprised me as the soup was filled with umami taste despite its unpretentious look! Crunchy to the bite, the deep-fried Lady Finger and Sakura Prawn Tempurawith Sakura Salt was irresistible.
Next came 3 kinds of assorted sashimi and I was thrilled to know that diners can request for their preferred choices! The grilled dish of the day – Wagyu Saikoro Steak with special Truffle Soy Sauce was my favorite dish of the day for its juiciness and flavorsome taste while the 3-kind sushi dish was heaven in disguise! I was blown away by the torched toro topped with the heavenly lip-smacking sea urchin. The final dish was soul-satisfying as the Anmitsu with Hojicha Ice Cream was a wonderful sweet-ending for such a gastronomic adventure.
