From the team that brought you highly acclaimed restaurants such as Bo$$ Man and Sisterfields, Bikini brings a whole new dining concept to the table with an emphasis on rediscovering the entire shared plate dining experience with Creative and whimsical creations that will certainly taste as good as it looks.
With a playful tongue in cheek slogan “you look hot in bikini”, it is a destination that does not take itself too seriously. A hip and happening spot where diners can simply relax and let their hair down while enjoying delectable dishes like no other. With an ambitious menu to boot, the decor does not pale in comparison, where the center piece of the space is a pink fuchsia wall which greets guests upon entering the restaurant.
A starter that showcases the boldness and creativity of the team is the foie gras parfait cigar, quince gel with bread and butter ash is beautifully presented to mimic cigars on an ash tray. For the freshness of the sea, the ceviche is a great option with snapper, squid, tomato ice, kokka melon and interestingly Balinese sambal is added into the mix, an odd combination but somehow it works with the spiciness paired perfectly with all the other elements in the dish. Moving onto the small plates, where diners will find some classics with a twist. The potato, egg and truffle dish is simple yet absolutely delicious with A mixture of gnocchi, potato crisps and skins is topped with an egg slow cooked at 63 degrees Celsius as well as truffle cream and butter. A fun dish to share is the corn, popcorn, chipotle and manchengo, presented impeccably yet again, it will certainly be a talking point at the table, the corn is mildly spicy with a touch of saltiness and crunch from the crumbed popcorn. For poultry, the tender chicken with black garlic aioli and pearl barley served along with jus and crispy skin on the side is a dish worthy of savouring.
Leaving some space for dessert, the Eton Mess is a must with meringue, red berries and elderflower, a very nice combination of sweetness and nothing too overpowering, an ideal way to end the meal. With so many offerings on the menu, fret not, for those who simply cannot decide, Bikini has a feed me degustation menu where diners can enjoy their culinary journey crafted by bikini’s team of experts.
