1. Two Sons Bistro at Solaris Dutamas



Start with a steaming-hot pot of mussels – Two Sons offers a 450-gramme serving that’s notably well-priced for RM28 (three or four patrons could share this as a starter), especially since it comes with an all-you-can-eat free flow of garlic brioche or fries to soak up the sauce. What’s more, you can choose from 16 types of preparations (!) – our option was char-grilled with sweet paprika butter (flavoursome & fresh-tasting); others might prefer spiced tomato & beef chorizo, oregano & sour cream, celery & leek, sun-dried tomatoes & olive oil, turmeric lime butter, ginger & lemongrass, cheese-baked, bird’s-eye chilli & thyme, butter cream, Thai green curry or tom yum – the list goes on.

Address: A4-G2-8, Solaris Dutamas
