This butter fish was my favorite dish of the night. Just look at the gorgeous brown sear on the fish. <3

The thick meaty slab of butter fish was served with charred purple cabbage and a bed of crushed potatoes and salsa verde. The fish was perfectly cooked; moist, juicy and packed with a robust but not overpowering flavor. The purple cabbage was well cooked but a tad oily (check out that sheen to it) I'm typically not a fan of overpowering herb-based sauces like salsa verde, but it worked well in this dish. The potatoes soaked up the salsa verde and were extremely flavorful.

I enjoyed my visit to Tropique Cafe because of the attention to detail. From the decor to the refined presentation to the food, to the attentive wait staff to even the kombu butter served with the complimentary sourdough, everything felt perfect and just right. Plus, everything was so affordably priced, with this delicious butter fish costing just RM32.90 :)
