Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - EATING -

At Mezze Bistro, Wine Bar & Lounge, world cuisines con­gre­gate un­der one roof. A glance at the menu re­veals in­flu­ences from Europe, Asia and the Mediter­ranean, and a taste of the food un­earths the kitchen’s abil­ity to cre­ate in­ven­tive dishes us­ing dif­fer­ent cook­ing tech­niques.

Mezze’s AMPM con­cept is made up of two menus: a lunch menu avail­able un­til 5pm and a din­ner menu pre­sented after sun­set. If your visit co­in­cides with lunchtime, try the hearty house sig­na­ture: the Viet­namese Beef Noo­dle Soup is crowned with fresh veg­eta­bles and herbs – it’s the taste of Indo-China in a bowl. Other lunch spe­cial­i­ties in­cludes juicy chicken banh mi sand­wich, rich creamy Car­bonara pasta and the much loved Olio Ba­con pasta un­der their set lunch spe­cials.

Din­ner is equally epic with a broad range of tapas, sal­ads, pas­tas and mains. And the char­cu­terie plat­ter metic­u­lously cu­rated by Head Chef Yves is meant for shar­ing. Served with bread, but­ter and tart pick­les, the mélange of ham, sausages, pâtés and ter­rines is good enough to be eaten on its own, but is best paired with a bot­tle of wine.

Where wine is con­cerned, look to res­i­dent som­me­lier Se­bastien Le Fran­cois for his ex­pert opin­ion on re­gional spe­cial­ties. Other­wise, sin­gle malt whiskies, beer, spir­its and ar­ti­sanal cock­tails should tempt any tip­pler. On Fri­day
