Fodor's Expert Review Privilege Restaurant & Bar
A welcome escape from the resort-style dining that monopolizes the island, Privilege is set up on the second floor with large windows that face the marina and a glass wall that allows a peek into the kitchen. There you can see chef Anuar Hassan combining the traditional flavors of Malay cuisine with modern techniques to inventive results. Try the spicy sea bass curry with okra, tomatoes, and sweet beans (it comes with pillowy roti canai), or the roasted five-spice duck breast with fried white-radish cake. Make sure to leave room for dessert; the homemade ice cream trio—coconut, gula melaka (palm sugar), and pickled nutmeg—is a must. The menu also has plenty of dairy-free, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes.
