Fab­u­lous din­ing at Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar.

Tucked away on the pent­house level of the trendy WOLO ho­tel in Bukit Bin­tang, Mr Chew’s Chino

Latino Bar of­fers a feast to the senses, with stun­ning in­te­ri­ors paired with in­ven­tive Asian cui­sine pre­pared by the same award-win­ning team be­hind its op­u­lent sis­ter restau­rant, Troika Sky Din­ing. Housed in a fab­u­lous loft-like space, first-time vis­i­tors to this pic­turesque sanc­tu­ary will feel trans­ported to an idyl­lic place away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the big city.

Ev­ery inch of this grand du­plex of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties of de­light­ful dis­cov­ery: stylish din­ing ar­eas be­decked in fancy fur­nish­ings; a dra­matic por­trait of the Qing Dy­nasty's leg­endary Em­press Dowa­ger Cixi; and cosy-yet-spacious nooks per­fect for loung­ing about with a drink in hand. Thirsty trav­ellers to this lux­u­ri­ous es­tab­lish­ment can pop over to the cock­tail bar to sam­ple the Chino-Latino in­spired cock­tails con­cocted by Bev­er­ages & Wine Man­ager Rick Joore, while the Kirin bar serves up tasty thirst-quenchers in­clud­ing beer, saké, soju, umeshu, tuak, and var­i­ous other rice wines and in­fu­sions.

As for the menu, Mr Chew’s serves up plenty of fa­mil­iar flavours mixed with global in­flu­ences in­spired by founders Chris­tian Bauer and Ed­die Chew’s var­i­ous foodie ex­pe­di­tions across Malaysia and other ex­otic lo­cales around the world. Creative dishes in­clude the sig­na­ture Mr Chew’s bento box (MYR45++). Avail­able only dur­ing lunch, this tasty pack­age com­prises a roll of the day, pickle of the day, and a sig­na­ture bun fol­lowed by a main course of choice.

Din­ers with a sweet tooth can sa­ti­ate their sugar crav­ings by sink­ing their teeth into the in­dul­gent six-course dessert de­gus­ta­tion menu. Served at the restau­rant’s dessert bar, which is also the first of its kind in the big city, guests sign­ing up for this de­lec­ta­ble ex­pe­ri­ence will be able to in­ter­act with the creative Chef Ivan, who will be more than de­lighted to ex­plain the in­spi­ra­tions be­hind each cre­ation that comes paired with ei­ther tea (MYR60+) or al­co­hol (MYR95+).

For those who feel that mu­sic and food go hand to hand, drop by at 10pm on Fri­days and Satur­days for a sam­pling of ‘ Vinyl Ses­sions’. Fea­tur­ing some of KL’s best mu­sic selec­tors, this per­for­mance of­fers an eclec­tic mix of Latin, soul, pop and jazz that will get you in the mood for good food. But if Sun­day brunch is your rai­son d'etre, The Sun­day Af­fair menu (MYR140+ per per­son) will not dis­ap­point. This smor­gas­bord of flavours and colours of­fers 20 com­fort­ing dishes, be­gin­ning with many shared lit­tle plates be­fore mov­ing on to the big­ger main cour­ses, and fin­ished off with an ar­ray of in­no­va­tive desserts.
