Vintage Bank @ Kuala Lumpur Hilton

A pleasant place to hang out if you're looking for light bites with some booze.

The complimentary bar snacks might actually have been enough to fill us up, but there were other items on their menu that tempted us better.

Rocinante goat's cheese (semi-soft cheese soaked in red wine for 3 days, with a mild flavour tinged with floral undertones of the wine) and Valdeon Blue Cheese (traditionally covered in maple leaves, this is creamy, crumbly cheese, intense on the palate).

Oysters with different dressings: tobbiko roe & spring onion; lemongrass, chilli & coriander tabasco sauce; apple cider & black pepper vinegar.

Brandy Alexander (brandy, creme de cacao, cream) & Brandy Ice (cognac, kahlua, bailey's, fresh cream).

Caipiroska (citron vodka, fresh lime, sugar) & Silk Stocking (tequila, creme de cassis, creme de cacao white, fresh cream).
