Each contemporary dining restaurant today has its own set of unique offerings, yet they all share a few unmistakable common characteristics. These establishments strives to pamper diners with an exceptional experience from the moment they walk through the door - an experience that goes beyond the sparkling chandeliers, tunes that hit the right note, and art on the wall.

    SPG by Bijan: Menu, Price & Review at Bukit Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur

    First there’s Bijan, then there is SPG by Bijan.

    SPG or Sarong Party Grill is a kittenish play on words. It was initially coined as the acronym for Sarong Party Girls - a term that dates back to the late 1940s to describe Asian ladies who preferred dating and socialising with white men. The tapas and grill bar embodies playful and carefree elements that follow the theme closely, all while staying true to its local roots through its tastefully embellished interior and attentive selection of the chief ingredients used in all its dishes.

    Signature Cocktails at SPG by Bijan

    SPG cocktails are created with nothing less than bold, high-flown, yet unpretentious displays of artfulness. Each glass comes with at least one key Malaysian ingredient that makes the cocktail truly and innovatively local.

    All the cocktails - even the frozen ones, are priced at RM35 per glass, which I personally think is very reasonable considering the quality and ingredients used.

    SPG by Bijan
    Stinkini (RM35)
    Pickled petai, gin & vermouth.

    My personal favorite is definitely the Stinkini, which I think would be a shame for anyone to skip during the visit here. The only possible way to remember this brilliant concoction by is through its potent, palate-awakening flavors and soul-wrenching stench (which ironically, is something Malaysians appreciate). The first few sips may be overwhelming for those who are yet to be accustomed to the pervasive "rotten egg" odor of this tropical broad bean, but the following sips will slowly but surely turn the potion into your next secret addiction.

    À la Carte Menu at SPG by Bijan

    Tell the waiter about your favorite Malay dish and they will swiftly recommend an inventive, delightful variation. Served tapas-style, each dish is thoughtfully portioned for sharing with attractive plating for appeal. As serious as the chefs are in developing the dishes, they still managed to elevate the planning into an art. Cheeky, but serious nonetheless.
