Valentine’s Day the Malay Way at Bijan KL

Among all of the observational celebrations we celebrate here in Malaysia, Valentine’s Day has always been a ‘wildcard’ celebration, especially among the Malay community.

Well, the reason is simple. 14th February is seen as a day where bad decisions are made which you will regret 9 months later.

Well, we are not here to tell what is good or not. Nonetheless, there is no harm in having good food, especially ones offered for a limited time only.


Embrace Love Through Culture!

This Valentine’s, Bijan KL, famous for presenting delicous Malay cuisines with a fine dining twist, has come up with a three-course meal set you cannot say no to!

Made using all things aphrodisiac, the menu, aptly called the ‘Dondang Sayang’, consists of tradisional dishes with Baba Nyonya flavours.

What makes this menu so perfect for celebrating lovebirds because it offers two dishes for every course! Isn’t that wonderful? Bijan KL will make sure you don’t go home hungry.


Love in Experimentation

To commemorate your love this Valentine’s Day, Bijan KL special menu is all about presenting love through a marriage of delicious local flavours and ingredients.

What’s so different about this menu, you ask?

In this menu, and only here at Bijan can you find budu belachan caviar and fermented prime Angus ribeye. The name might scare you at first but hey, love is all about experimentation, right? You can only know whether you love something or not by trying it first. Our verdict? we love it! The creations are simply ingenious.

Azrene Jasmine

A true blue Penangite, Azrene Jasmine favourite thing to do is, well, eating. Though currently in a love/hate relationship with the weighing scale, she truly believes that every woman should choose a hunk of juicy steak over a bowl of salad on the first date because steaks are awesome and what man can resist a woman with a healthy appetite?
