It’s been a while since we last treated ourselves with Indonesian influenced meals. Since we’re at the Setia City Mall for a walk and learning that Dancing Fish is nestled right there, we wouldn’t wanna miss it 🙂
Been missing the authenticity of having the Malay-Indo cuisine since our Bali visit as we love their use of native spices in their food.
Dancing Fish was actually listed in the 2013 Top 500 Asia’s Finest Restaurants by The Miele Guide and shortlisted for Asia’s Top 20! Their first outlet is located at Bangsar Village.
At Dancing fish, be prepared to be tantalized by their Indonesian cuisine as they are richly flavoured with spices, herbs, and other seasonings, and is guaranteed to awaken your tastebuds. Its also a very healthy cuisine, relying on a wide range of nutrient rich ingredients including vegetables, grains, fruits, nuts, legumes and fish.
Their Setia City Mall outlet is furnished in a more modern and sleek way with simple clean furnishings. The staffs there were very friendly and accommodating too. After seating us both and offering us the menu, we were offered with Emping (one of their well known snacks).
Emping with Sambal Terasi – RM5
Made 100% from the Melinjo nuts. A nutty slighty bitter taste that is perfectly balanced by our famous Sambal Terasi. Very addictive till we nibbled to the very last bite. Even better when dipped into the sourish and spicy sambal terasi. Must have! You can opt not order this if you’re ordering their set menu as they come together with the set.
Dancing Fish (Nila Goreng) With Mango Kerabu – RM45.90
When you’re dining at Dancing Fish, you must have Dancing Fish! 🙂
They expertly unfolds the fish in the most graceful manner and deep fried it, holding it in that dancing position. A very beautiful and crispy dish indeed. Totally crispy on the outside but remain soft, sweet and juicy on the inside. We chose to drench our fish with the Mango Kerabu sauce which is sweet, sour and spicy. You could also opt for other sauces like Sambal Terasi and Kicap or Masam Kedondong Pedas.
Panggang Goreng Laut Set – RM30.90
BBQ squid and BBQ prawns in special sauce. Served with white rice, Emping, Sambal, 2 salads/vegetable of the day and Tauhu Tempe. Since there were only 2 of us, we ordered one set for sharing as their set is quite huge. You could add rice if you think you’re still hungry 🙂 The BBQ squids and prawns were fresh and tasty! Love how they grill their seafood with kicap manis! Brings the extra sweetness out of the seafood.
