The Wine House

This wine boutique serves as a pleasant place for a peaceful, pork-packed meal accompanied by several glasses of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir.

Bacon-wrapped asparagus. Tiny, but marvelously savory and reasonably juicy.

Glazed pork belly. Meaty stuff, with a pinch of spiciness from some mustard on the side. But it lacks a sense of melt-in-the-mouth succulence to make it a real knockout.

Forgettable pork ribs. There are more lip-smacking, finger-lickin' versions elsewhere.

Red Hill Creek Chardonnay (Australia, 2007) & Don Cayetano Merlot (Santiago, Chile, 2008). The selection of wines by the glass is nicely priced at RM15-20.

Arthur Metz Gewurtzraminer (Alsace, France, 2005) & Logan Apple Tree Flat Merlot (Mudgee NSW, Australia, 2006).

The kitchen only closes at about 11pm, making The Wine House an ideal stop for a late snack when the rest of the mall is closed.

  9. Seriously, methinks almost anything wrapped in bacon will turn out heavenly...

    ...with the obvious exception of cockles and mangosteens. :P
