↬ Main 
Fish Fillet And Pepper Coulis (RM 27)
Here come the main course, Pan fried perch served with pepper coulis reduction, roasted potato and cheese sauce. As you may wonder what is a Perch fish. Click here. The texture of the fish is stunning, soft and chewy. The texture is smooth, unlike other fish that give you a rough scratch on the tongue.
