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.
