Ywine Kitchen & Bar, Taman Desa
January 30, 2022
Ywine Kitchen & Bar brings a cosy, casual experience to diners and drinkers in Taman Desa: Visit this warm, welcoming venue not only for its selection of boutique labels but its playful food pairings, which include many Asian specialities - match your newfound favourite bottle with glass noodles, gyoza, garlic fried rice and much more for a delicious evening.
Ywine promises the precise bottle to perfectly complement everything on its menu.
What about meat and robust noodles?
Ywine's gorgeously medium-rare Wagyu rib-eye deserves the Scriani Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva, a dry Italian red from the Veneto region that balances a smooth oakiness with a bold cherry fruitiness that holds up well to succulent red meat.
Ywine's siew yoke is consistently a bestseller, beloved by fans of Chinese roast pork. It might be intriguingly enhanced by the 2018 Torbreck The Struie Shiraz, a Barossa Valley vintage with an aromatic elegance and powerful structure that make it lovely for punchy pork.
Hokkien Mee might seem like a challenge for wine pairings, but never fear: Ywine's Echo de Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2016 is a Bordeaux that rises to the occasion, complex with earthy hints of blackberry and and tobacco, a memorable marriage with the wok hei of the Hokkien mee.
Even if you're ordering a variety of very different dishes, spanning addictive Keropok Lekor to the kitchen's secret savoury clam recipe of Kobi Lala to the crowd-pleasing Stewed Pork Mee Hoon that's comforting for rainy nights, Ywine offers surprising choices to complement the cooking. A Selbach Classic Riesling with keropok lekor? Or Saito Premium Junmai Sake with stewed pork mee hoon? Make a date with Ywine to encounter this for yourself.
Open Monday-Saturday, 2pm-11:30pm. Tel: 011-5898-8166
