Pick Your Pickles @ Solaris Dutamas

June 7, 2014

Souring our love for Solaris Dutamas, this cheerful little shop is an Aladdin's cave for pursuers of preserved food products.

From guava to grapes, papayas to plums & mangoes. RM5 for 200 grams, RM12 for 500 grams, RM30 for 1.5 kilograms.

Vividly colourful, potentially piquant & pungent.

It's not all about fruits though. Also available: Garlic for RM7, olives for RM15.

For something sweeter: Dried fruits that cost about RM12 per bottle, spanning the likes of kiwi fruit, cranberries & apricots.

We picked & packed some pickles up & paired them with a wine dinner graciously hosted by Prakash of Wine Daddy.

Prakash is blessed with the services of a gifted cook who whips up quite the spread.

Keep up to date with Wine Daddy on Facebook for info on their events.

Pick Your Pickles' olives & garlic? Delicious.

Their dried fruits proved enjoyable too; an addictive snack, absolutely.

And of course, wine makes it all indisputably better.
