Bibitus @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Frangipani's new wine bar, Bibitus, is an interesting, intimate space, offering a multitude of French wines at surprisingly reasonable prices.

It's a cosy set-up that's much less formal than Frangi's main restaurant.

Bibitus has no official menu so far, but customers can order selected items from Frangi's kitchen, served in dainty portions for light dining. The warm tea-smoked salmon with confit potatoes, creme fraiche & salmon roe was as luscious as ever.

Pan-roasted duck confit with mustard cream & mashed potatoes. The skin wasn't as crisp as usual, but somehow, this tasted even better than Frangi's regular version, perhaps because each spoonful yielded the perfect balance of succulent meat and soft potato.

Gaillac, Mauzac Nature, Par Robert & Bernard Plageoles.
