Remember that we mentioned about how much we adore stepping into restaurants that are ‘old’?
Well, not exactly ‘old’ in terms of it being there for quite sometime but also goes to those with the retro essence. Going back in time is a very good idea for a restaurant.
Malayas Bistro nestled at Capsquare is a hidden gem that brought out the flavours of Malaya (Malaysia). Dining at this restaurant reminded me of “1957: Hati Malaya”, a movie that flashback the days for the tough route towards independence and how the founding fathers sacrified to free us from colonialism. I believe you would feel that way too. Wipe out the boring topics that we just memorized hard by words just to pass the history test and indulge in this atmosphere and the heritage they are trying to preserve taking you to old Malaya.
Warm interior of exclusive teak wood furnitures that was inspired by the Old Malaya tea houses, a few portraits that depicts story of independence and a great highlight when the night draws near: LIVE BAND everyday at 8pm that churns out light and soft relaxing jazz.
While enjoying great music and environment, you could great Malaysian food in tapas portion that will suit your taste.

The meat texture was great but a wee bit salty to eat just by itself. Maybe it should go with a white rice.
