Blessed with Old Malaya's colonial good looks, Manja boasts ritzy nighttime vibes that are perfect for after-dinner affairs with the gang. The menu inspires with inventive dishes, from a Blue Claw Lobster Slider (RM46) to the Bayam & Escargot dip (RM38) — both good to share as luxe supper snacks. For those who arrive in time to grab dinner, there is the Gunda Gunda (RM62), a rice bowl medley of seafood, greens and nuts. 'Manja' means 'pamper' in Malay, and their stellar desserts will do just that! Local favourites get a facelift here, like the Kopi Peng & Kahlua (RM29) ice-cream churned with organic milk, cane sugar and pistachios. Alternatively, try the hot-and-cold combo in an Old Malaya Tea Time (RM32), featuring rastali banana fritters with teh tarik ice cream. If it's a breezy evening, have your desserts out in the patio for a good view of the city skyline. Sweet!
