In the past year, Banglo 289 has become the city centre's crave-worthy destination for an authentic Malay culinary experience. 

Whether you're seeking a soulful spread of traditional treats for lunch or a vast variety of classic cuisine for Ramadan dinners, Banglo 289 beckons in a beautiful bungalow with both air-conditioned and alfresco spaces.

We revisited Banglo 289 recently to sample its latest sensations for the afternoon crowd - the restaurant was bustling on a weekday by noon, a testament to its tempting cooking.

For lunch, customers can choose from a sweeping selection of rich, robust recipes, freshly served on the counters, representing time-honoured flavours.

The Ayam Kampung Goreng (RM10) illustrates Banglo 289's expertise with surprisingly moist, tender flesh, packing a savoury kick in every mouthful.

The Daging Salai Masak Lemak (RM14.50; also available as chicken) is fiercely fiery, for a tongue-tingling triumph of tender, chunky beef.

Banglo 289-79.jpgSambal Paru (RM6) showcases an addictively crisp crunch, saturated in spicy heat.

For a powerfully pungent pleasure, the Ikan Patin Tempoyak (RM18) features potently fermented sauce, complementing the moist, flaky fish. A firm favourite for many fans!
