BUNGA EMAS
Golden and glorious
 

Translated as ‘golden flower’ from Malay, Bunga Emas, the city centre’s first fine dining Malay restaurant set in the elegant Royale Chulan Hotel KL, proves that tradition and modernity can in fact coexist in glorious harmony. Malay cuisine tends to evoke images of home and family as opposed to fine dining, but the restaurant aims to change – and even revolutionise – that perception.

In a setting reminiscent of Malay kampung (village) houses of old, polished wood makes up the majority of the interior structure, complete with wooden balustrades before large glass windows that mimic traditional verandas. Besides the warm brown wood, the restaurant is fairly awash in the brightest gold as befits its name, a colour historically associated with wealth and royalty. Chair cushions, linen tablecloths, curtains, carpet, decorations – even the napkins are in gold.

This harmonious marriage of old and new is perfectly reflected in the menu, combining familiar, aromatic spices and ingredients common in Malay dishes with exquisite modern cooking techniques to produce an innovative, reimagined take on traditional Malay flavours. Ever wondered what the Malay version of foie gras might taste like? Or how the humble popiah can be made ‘high-class’? Come to Bunga Emas and find out!
