I have heard many things about Rimba & Rusa, throughout the few years they have been operating at Sunway Nexis. Mostly of the beautiful backgrounds that was an obvious A+ for photography, than of the Asian fusion menu. I’d finally gotten around to dropping by just recently.
Nowadays, if I’m ever given a chance to pick – coffee, tea or juice – I’d usually go for the fresh juices.
My beetroot based Cold Pressed Juice (RM15.00) came packed with pulp (good!), and tasted raw and rich (great!). The Strawberry Soda (RM10.00) on the other hand, felt more like a refreshingly sweet treat.
As for food, we ordered two dishes to share.
There’re many variations of baked eggs, though the common ingredient used would clearly be the pool of rich tomato sauce base. Rimba & Rusa’s rendition of Shakshouka Baby (RM18.00) was a hearty and tasty treat. It was really just a simple, meatless dish consisting of two poached eggs, chickpeas and greens, served alongside fluffy thick toast. Eat it while it’s still hot!
The Bello Aglio Olio (RM28.00) came with an abundance of seafood, enhanced with burn garlic confit and dried chilies for a fragrant finish. No need for the garnish – this was also quite good.
Overall Rating: 7.5/10. My meal was rather satisfying and the ambiance was a clear winner. Having said that, I found myself forking out a little more than what my wallet would have expected. Justifiable or not? I will leave that to you.
