WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Mediterranean -

This swanky restau­rant, the brain­child of nearby Ganga Café own­ers in sub­ur­ban Bangsar, will de­light fine din­ing veg­e­tar­i­ans with its cre­atively unique fare hand­somely mar­ried to an ex­cep­tional range of wines.

The 16-course Mediter­ranean Ex­pe­ri­ence de­gus­ta­tion menu is an ex­cel­lent way to sam­ple the many cre­ations of Chef Lingesh DJ in one seat­ing. First up is home-baked bread with ap­ple cider, red wine vinai­grette in olive oil. Taken to­gether with the tummy-warm­ing roasted pump­kin soup in­fused with air­dried gin­ger stim­u­lates the ap­petite for the feast to come.

In­ter­est­ing high­lights in­clude three ta­pas-style dishes – patatas bravas with red wine tomato sauce, grilled sweet pep­pers with blue cheese and herb oil, and the roasted Romano with pit­ted prunes and cran­berry. The pre­sen­ta­tion is ex­quis­ite and the taste, re­fined.

For carbs, the mush­room zuc­chini aglio olio is no­table for its per­fectly al dente strands of pasta with ex­tra crunch com­ing from shred­ded, lightly blanched zuc­chini. Our favourite, if we had to pick, is the other main of pis­ta­chio car­bonara. A bal­anced creami­ness coats ev­ery strand with sat­is­fy­ing nut­ti­ness and gen­er­ous amounts of sun­dried toma­toes sear through the rich in­gre­di­ents.
