Opium

We didn’t eat as much Chinese food as we had hoped throughout our trip, so for our last meal we looked up Chinese restaurants and found Opium. It isn’t really a traditional style Chinese restaurant and instead more of a modern style one surrounded by other expat style restaurants and shops. It was also a bit more expensive then anything else we’d eaten during our trip, but since it was essentially our last meal in Malaysia we didn’t mind splurging a bit.

Opium menu

We ordered cheese samosas which came with apricot chutney. They were delicious. (21RM)

My friend’s black dragon cocktail and the 3 cheese samosas with apricot chutney

My friend ordered a drink she absolutely loved that smoked when it came out. She got the black dragon which was a cocktail of vodka, crème de cassis, lemon juice and blackberries. I got to try a bit and it was good, sweet with a nice blackberry flavor but also strong in an alcohol undertone. It was really cool to watch though since there seemed to be some dry ice involved. (48RM)

My drink was a bit less exciting. I ordered the spiced teh tarik but it was still good. (15RM)

Lotus buns left, five spiced duck in the middle and my friend’s noodle dish right.

For a main course I got the 5 spice duck with lotus buns (45RM) and extra lotus buns (5RM) that I used to make myself delicious little sandwiches.

The early evening atmosphere was also quite pleasant. There was a live performer playing a guzheng and it wasn’t too crowded at first. We were able to sit outside and enjoy all the lights on the street.
