Borneo Rainforest Cafe & the Ruai Supperclub @ Sunway

“I’m a self confessed foodie! I wanted a place with great ambience, where I can chill out with my friends, family and work colleagues; enjoy a live band, and where I can find all my favourite food in one place!”

–          Founder & award Winning Producer & Actor, and  Tiara Jacquelina

I don’t think there is a place in KL quite like this one. Tucked away amidst the throngs of shoppers, lines of cars and the activity in the hub of Sunway, you’ll find a haven of tranquillity.

Past Sunway Pyramid, and just opposite Sunway Hotel, is a unique chill out spot, with its very own waterfall.

There, you will find Borneo Rainforest Cafe, and a few steps away, the Ruai Supperclub.

The cafe itself is open-air, spacious and rustic all in one. The soothing sounds of the waterfall and lush greenery provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy authentic local dishes. Once dinner is over, you can hop on over to the late night watering hole, the Ruai Supperclub, let down your hair and dance the night away to a live band of in house DJ. Not forgetting the World Cup, catch all the matches live on the big screens dotted around the restaurant.

“Yummy, wild, fresh and funky” is what the waiters shout out in unison as they present you with an eclectic mix of Malaysian, Asian & Western Dishes.

A perfect accompaniment to the meal, a piping hot cup of Lemongrass and Ginger Tea.

Get a sneak peak of the chefs preparing your meal in the open kitchen.

Borneo Rainforest Cafe is most famous for specialties from the Borneo region, like Laksa Sarawak (RM 14.90).

Rice vermicelli served in a rich chilli spiced gravy of coconut milk, prawn and chicken stock, topped with prawns, egg shreds and shredded chicken.

Another specialty from that region was the Mee Kolok (RM 13.90).

Flat rice noodles in black soya, blanched and topped with minced meat, served with homemade chicken broth.

If you want a truly authentic dish, do pre-order the Sarawak Umai (RM 13.90), 2 days in advance. This is a traditional Sarawakian pickled mackerel in lime, chillies and ginger.

From the Asian Kitchen, you can get local favourites like Penang Fried Kway Teow, Mee Mamak, mee Rebus, Cantonese Fried Kway Teow, Nasi Lemak and even Chicken Rice. Also on the menu, you’ll find Claypot Curry Fish Head and Seafood Tom Yam.

If you’re in the mood for rice and dishes, choose from the many much loved local specialties like Beef Rendang, Ayam Masak Merah, Kangkun Belachan, Egg  Foo Yong and Sizzling Beancurd.

Western dishes include Creme of Wild Mushroom Soup, Traditional Ceasar Salad, Classic Spaghetti Bolognaise and Fetuccine Carbonara.

At the bottom of the menu, you will notice a little “heart symbol” with the words, “Tiara’s Favourites” next to it.

That’s what we tried next from the Selection of Fresh Seafood. A gleaming, bright red plate of the house specialty Chilli Crab was laid in front of us.

The crabs were fresh, and the sauce thick, rich, sweet and spicy.

We tried another favourite house specialty, the Butter Prawns.

Large, succulent prawns stir fried and coated in salty, shredded floss.

Dining under the stars, a cool evening breeze, the rumblings of the waterfall, and bona fide artefacts from Sarawak, the ambience at Borneo Rainforest is unlike any other restaurant in KL.

Don’t miss it.

Special thanks to Azimy & Victoria for a memorable evening.

Special thanks to Alvin, for the beautiful photos.
