Bee can be found in Jalan Sultan, a street that is all about food and fake fancy brands. Surrounded by stalls full of Rolex, Gucci, Prada and DVD’s you’ll find mysterious plastic tables with a circular whole in the centre. The mystery turns out to be a huge fondue pan which fill the hole in both the table and your stomach.

While the bouillon is getting up to steam, you can point out what you’ll like to prepare in it at the stalls around the tables. Shrimp, sate, mushrooms, squid, fish and loads of organs, all on fondue sticks, disappear into the boiling table, filling the air with steam and delicious scents.
