Maduro & De Solvang

Drink & be merry! Maduro & De Solvang are two watering holes, one at TTDI & the other at Solaris Mont Kiara _ a 10-minute drive from each other, using the excellent Penchala Link.

First up, Maduro _ a handsome TTDI cigar lounge, free from crowds on weekday evenings.

Food wasn't available on our not-so-recent visit here (months ago, eeeks!), but we were satisfied with red wine at about RM16 a glass.

We're not cigar buffs though, so this selection was wasted on us.

Next up, De Solvang _ not one of Mont Kiara's high-profile watering holes, but still worth a stop.

De Solvang's menu is wide, featuring snacks such as Haitian Chicken Wraps _ tortillas filled with meat marinated in rum & Coke. Sounded unusual, but tasted unmemorable. Or maybe we were too tipsy to remember.

Decent drinks at decent prices: Japanese Slipper (midori, cointreau, lemon juice) & Walking On The Beach (What's in this cocktail? We forget. But we think Sex On The Beach is better).

Ninety-nine bottles of something-something on the wall, ninety-nine bottles...

  1. The Japanese Slipper looks good. How did it taste? I remember Japanese Slipper being quite a sickening green slime look. This looks "fresh".

  2. Missyblurkit: yikes, honestly, this might have been my first Japanese Slipper in many years! and also, this was at the end of a long night of eating & drinking, so i can't recall much about the cocktail. it looks & sounds tangy & refreshing though, heheh :D

  3. Penchala link is god-send :)
    I like where Maduro is, quiet and low-key. But cigars are wasted on me too!

  4. Maybe the Walking on the Beach was a prelude to the classic and more famous cocktail of a similar moniker? :P

  7. TNG: yeah, imagine without the penchala link, we'd probably go through the sprint highway to get from mont kiara to TTDI. an extra 30-minute drive maybe! :D
    Kenny: sounds like someone's speaking from experience! hope you didn't get sand caught in inconvenient crevices! :D
