Divine Fusion Restaurant & Bar
Flavours from Around the World
By Crystal Chong
Inspired by a love of travelling, Divine usion Restaurant & Bar in SS2 is here you can find a wide variety of hes with influences from China, Spain, Malaysia and beyond.
As you arrive, look out for the rattan chair set against a bright white wall and arch windows reminiscent of a vacation home in Greece. Walking in, the senses light up from the vibrant pink walls, colourful suede chairs and most importantly, friendly staff. With an outdoor seating area, a spacious first floor and an event space on the second floor which can house up to 90 guests, Divine Fusion is the place for you and your loved ones to catch up and celebrate the big days.
After taking some shots at this very Insta- worthy spot, we got comfy and began our feast. First, one of the must-tries is the signature seafood cooked with your choice of sauce. We tried the Clams with Garlic Bread cooked in Butter Cream and Chilli sauce. The garlic bread was crispy and dipping it into the rich, sweet and spicy sauce made for delightful bites. We also had Mussels with Spanish-style Spicy Chilli sauce, with the generous use of spices and fresh mussels making for a fragrant and appetising dish.
For pastas, we had the Spicy Prawn Spaghetti, served with tiger prawns, seafood gyoza and a creamy Spanish spicy sauce which for me, made a great choice of comfort food (if you can handle the spice). If you’re sharing with a friend, also order the Aglio Olio Seafood Spaghetti for a balance. This was a little lighter with the tiger prawns, mussels, clams, calamari and black olives tossed in a sweet basil sauce.
One of the stand-out dishes for us was the Spanish-style Spicy Prawn Mantou – large tiger prawns with a Spanish spicy sauce stuffed in a fried golden mantou. What we loved most was how well the flavours and textures went together. It was as if they pieced together the best elements from each cuisine and presented it to us.
Moving on to the Asian section of this journey, we had the Sichuan Mala Chicken Rice (appetising fried chicken with refreshing cucumber and chilli served with crunchy keropok) and Nasi Lemak with Beef Rendang (a classic with a slightly sweet sambal, fragrant coconut rice and spicy beef). To round off our feast, we had the Divine Butter Egg Fried Rice with mouth- watering buttery bits and treasures such as chicken and prawns hidden inside the rice.
While here, be sure to also try the drinks, which deserve the spotlight just as much as the food. As the brainchild of co-founder Hazel, each drink delights not only in taste, but also in presentation. Divine “The Blue Lady”, for one, is a bright blue mocktail made with lemonade, blue lagoon, basil and sprite topped with beautiful pink petals and gold foil. The finishing touch is the little piece of RM100 note, which really is sugar for you to adjust the level of sweetness.
My personal favourite was the Longan Mojito, a refreshing soda with fresh mint leaves and yes, lots of longan. Although this is not an alcoholic drink, you can opt to add a shot of vodka or rum to kick things up a notch.
Other drinks to try include the Iced Lychee Coffee, with the slight bitterness of the black coffee balancing well with the sweet lychee, and the Ice Blended Milk with Gula Melaka, creamy milk perfectly blended to ensure no chunky bits of ice rem , served with a beaker of gula Melaka.
