Songket Restaurant @ Jalan Yap Kwan Seng

If you are looking for a nice ambiance restaurant that serves a great deal of authentic traditional Malaysian dishes, look no further, Songket Restaurant is the place. Songket Restaurant serves fine Traditional Malay cuisine. Recipes are passed down from generation to generation.

“Songket” in Bahasa Melayu means traditional hand-woven fabric (silk or cotton). A picture of how Songket looks like:

Songket Restaurant is located at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, which is very near KLCC. Just beside Jelita Court.

This is how the restaurant looks like:

The restaurant is spacious and there are indoor and outdoor seatings. If you prefer to have some privacy (say for discussion meetings or private events), you can request for the VIP rooms.

Although the restaurant highlights on traditional Malay cuisine, the restaurant serves a menu of various drinks. From fruit juices to mocktails.

As much as I’d like to talk more about the food and drinks, I shall leave the pichas to do the talking :D

Cucur udang @ RM10
“Crisp morsels of deep fried prawn and vegetable strips in light batter and served with homemade chili sauce.”


Otak-otak @ RM12
“Steamed seafood mousse with kaduk leaf.”

Soft and flavourful. The texture is like steamed egg.


Satay @ RM18
“Eight pieces of skewered chicken and beef fillet marinated in spiced honey & grilled over a charcoal fire.”

Delicious beef and chicken satay. Mind you these satays are meaty and unlike those skinny satay or fatty satay we get on the streets.

This is one of the highlighted dish in Songket.

Tender and juicy beef ribs. *nom nom*

So yummy till licking every drop of sauce from the bone. lol


Ikan siakap masam manis @ RM60
“Sweet and sour deep fried seabass with turmeric and kaffir lime sauce.”

Not forgetting, fish talk is a must when seeing fish head.

Desserts here are unique on their own and also the highlights in the menu.

“Traditional tiramisu flavored with creamy durian.”

I love tiramisu and durian, having both in a slice is like having a combo feast!


Sago gula Melaka RM10
“A Malaysian classic – chilled sago served with coconut milk and palm sugar syrup.”

Would be great if there’s a hole in the middle of the sago, with coconut milk pool in it and lotsa brown sugar. Bliss~

The pandan pudding is superb! So delicate and I had 2 servings of it! hoho..

Songket Restaurant is a nice place for fine dining. Apart from that, it’s also a nice to hangout for a drink and absolutely love their desserts (especially the pandan pudding) :3
