    Newcomer List of the Year Asia, presented by DAOU 2024

    If you are looking for a restaurant with only natural wine, I would say that Unwined Plus is worth a visit. The wine list starts from France, Italy and Spain in the Old World and continues to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in the New World where all the wines fall under either one of the categories of organic, biodynamic, sustainable and low intervention. The wines are selected by the owner/sommelier Hsiao Tung Wei. He was so dedicated and passionate about the wines from these categories that he eventually obtained a winery in Italy and started producing his dream wines under these c...

    Newcomer List of the Year Asia, presented by DAOU 2024

    My "Most Anticipated Restaurant To Visit in 2023", is situated in Bamboo Hills, Kuala Lumpur and opened in September 2023. Potager is a contemporary French progressive cuisine and the name translates to "kitchen garden". Here, you can feel the culinary expression merging with artistic experience in the restaurant where Chef Masashi conveys his vision through his plates. In my humble opinion, Potager is not only striking in the culinary world but the wine list is also a remarkable milestone for the wine industry, and I would say that their wine listing is exceptional. The selection is very di...

    Address: Ground Floor (GF, 163 Retail Park, 19, Jalan Kiara, Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

    Situated in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, Osteria Emilia is no stranger to the residents around the neighbourhood, and this Italian-themed restaurant opened in mid-April 2023. Osteria Emilia is named in honour of the region Emilia-Romagna and the restaurant is illustrating a Milanese impression to patrons visiting them. The food is mainly based on classic Italian dishes but with a slight twist and modern touch, yet it doesn't overshadow the originality of the dish. The wine program is run by Yin How Wong, the owner of the restaurant, with a balance of classic new-world and old-world wines. Even...

    Address: Golf & Country Resort, Menara Lien Hoe, 8, Persiaran Tropicana, Tropicana, Petaling Jaya

    Under the same roof that manages EMP KL, Lavo and Lavo Gallery are other venues located at Tropicana township in Petaling Jaya. The interior is modern, artful and funky for Lavo and a classy underground cellar feel for Lavo Gallery. Lavo is a blend of three different concepts: Restaurant, Bistro and Wine Atelier, whereas Lavo Gallery is their underground retail and storage. The food in Lavo is based on the common Malaysian comfort food, from Asian to Western, and my all-time favourite will be the Nasi Lemak Berempah and a glass of German Riesling. Size does matter and the wine list in Lavo a...

    Address: Lot 163, 10, Jalan Perak, Kuala Lumpur

    Beta in Kuala Lumpur operates under the same roof that manages Skillet Kuala Lumpur and is located in Colmar Suite, just 50 metres away from Skillet. Unlike their European-themed restaurant, Beta focuses on Malaysian Cuisine where chef/owner Raymond Tham implements his French cooking techniques with the usage of seasonal ingredients from local markets in Malaysia to showcase classic Malaysian dishes with a twist of contemporary flavours in a refined style. Similar to Skillet, Beta at the moment does not have any sommelier or wine personnel so the wine service is currently led by a restaurant...

    Skillet in Kuala Lumpur, originally named Skillet 163, opened in 2015 and is located in Colmar Suite along one of the busiest roads in Kuala Lumpur. Skillet focuses on modern European cuisine where chef/owner Raymond Tham applies his techniques using seasonal ingredients from the European continent to showcase classic dishes with a twist of contemporary flavours from Asia.

    Address: Level 41 at, Alila Bangsar, 58, Jalan Ang Seng, Kuala Lumpur

    Whenever I am having a long lunch break, I usually try to visit Entier because I would say they have one of the most value-for-money three-course lunches in town. Entier is a casual French restaurant located in Alila Hotel Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur and it opened its doors in January 2018. Entier is a French word that means "entire" and "whole" and the restaurant focuses on sustainability where they try to use everything from one ingredient, reflecting the nose-to-tail philosophy. The wine program previously was a little bit more laid-back, but things started to get serious when group sommelier...

    Nestled in Westin Hotel Kuala Lumpur, EMP KL started their operation in August 2022, serving modern and fusion Chinese-style dishes. I usually visit them during lunch hour to enjoy their fabulous dim sum selections, where every dish is suitable for a wine pairing. Not only the dishes are great but also the environment, presenting colourful imperial oriental motifs. The wine list is curated by the Group Head Sommelier, Dibin Chin, who has a long history in the wine industry in Malaysia. The wine list mainly focuses on classic Old World wines, especially from France, with some detours to other...

    Address: H-6-1,Pusat Perdagangan Bandar, Persiaran Jalil 1, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur

    Eat and Cook's journey didn't come easy, they opened in May 2020, during the pandemic, in a small 6-seater shop lot providing Omakase-Style Malaysian cuisine. In 2021 they moved to a new location at Bukit Jalil Area in Kuala Lumpur and converted the Omakase-style seating to Chef's Table-style seating. The kitchen at Eat and Cook is now led by two co-owners, Chef Lee and Chef Soh, to present local Malaysian ingredients to the world and believe me, they make Malaysians proud. The menu is based on chapters where each chapter presents different native ingredients from sea, land and mountain wit...
