Time for a Little Wine & Tapas @ Ambrosia Wine, Taman Desa KL

Ambrosia Wine, a restaurant in the heart of Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur is newly renovated and open in September 2018. We were honoured to be invited to a lovely dinner there last week. The new Ambrosia Wine And Tapas Bar is now offering over 300 brands of wine, Japanese Whisky, Single Malt Whisky and Craft Beers; and delicious Pizza, Tapas, Pasta, creative grill, and combined local traditions of local fusion cuisine prepared by their amazing new chef.
Inspired by industrial interior design embodies the energy of European wine cellar with the laid back atmosphere, Ambrosia Wines and Tapas Bar is a cozy living and dining room for friends and family. Private rooms with Karaoke system for group and couples that wants privacy are also available here. Designed with relaxed approach to good food made for sharing, and pairing, each dish has been created in tandem philosophy on the relationship between food and wine; one should enhance the other, and both should be equally, and simply enjoyed.
During the food tasting, we have tasted the 3 wines that were specially brought in by Ambrosia all the way from Australia. Each of them are unique in their own taste, and great to pair with the fantastic tapas that Ambrosia offered.

Pioneer Road Cabernet Sauvignon

Grape Variety – Cabernet Sauvignon

Selected Shiraz from premium vineyards throughout Langhorne Creek was vinified using a combination of fermentation styles and American oask, to highlight the regional characteristics. The wine has lifted aromas of spice, dark cherry and plums, with a rich-full-flavoured palate of forest fruits and vanilla, finishing with soft tannins and excellent length.
It tastes great now and will reward patient cellaring.

It is great to pair with gourmet pizza and red meat dishes, hence we have pair it with menu below;

Supreme Pulled Pork Pizza (RM 21)
Pineapple pork pizza with bacon, jalapenos & cilantro
Cheesy, piping-hot pizza is topped with pulled pork, fresh pineapple, bacon, jalapeños, and cilantro, with extra flavor coming from a sweet and tangy Pineapple & Sauce, yummy.

Espagueti De Pato Ahumado (RM 17.90)
Smoked duck breast spaghetti
Cheesy spaghetti made even better with smoked duck breast bacon.

Costilla De Cerdo Fresas (RM 19)
Strawberry pork ribs
Taste similarly with Chinese sweet & sour pork, this Strawberry pork ribs is a treat with sweet, spicy, tangy strawberry in a plate.

Sfera Shiraz
Grape Variety – Shiraz

There is a great intensity of fruit in 'Sfera' that showcases the excellent viticultutal practices that we strive for. The intense fruit is matched by concentration of colour with excellent palate and flavour complexity, largely attributable to the quality of winemakeing. 'Sfera' Shiraz is a fantastic expression of the uniqueness of Wirrega Vineyards.

Shiraz is good to pair with meat, hence we had the food below to pair with Sfera Shiraz.

Pizza De Cordero Griega (RM 20)
Greek lamb pizza
The combination of Greek flavours and lamb is perfect match to Sfera Shiraz.

Frito De Japapenos Envuelto Con Bacon (RM 18)
Fried Jalapenos wrap with bacon
We love this tapas the most. Combination of spicy jalapenos and crispy bacon for classic baked jalapeno poppers that are simply irresistible.

Pesas De Cerdo Frito (RM 17)
Deep fried pork ribs
The deep fried pork ribs is crispy and addictive.

Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Grape Variety – 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon

The blend is composed of 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon. Bright very pale straw colour with water like hue. Fresh, grassy, unripe gooseberry and tropical fruit nose, showing good varietal character, however, there is little power or strength. Light gooseberry and tropical fruit aftertaste.

The versatile structure of this white wine enables it to work well with many fish, prawns and sea-food dish such as the food below;

Mejillones Borrachos (RM 18)
Mussels with white wine served with French bread
We enjoyed the juicy mussles in lip-smacking broth a lot.

Tocino Y Champinones Espagueti (RM 17.90)
Shiitake Mushroom, Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti
If you like mushrooms, you'll like this pasta dish.

Vientre De Cerdo Frito (RM 19)
Deep fried pork belly
Crispy pork belly that melt in your mouth, one of the best tapas to enjoy with wine.

We have truly enjoyed ourselves at Ambrosia Wine And Tapas Bar that night. Not only we had a great wines tasting along with light, but tasty tapas that were served by friendly, knowledgeable staff. We took our time and did not feel rushed in the home-feeling restaurant. We left with our pallets satisfied but not overfilled. Ambrosia Wine And Tapas Bar is sure to be a neighborhood go-to bar from Monday through Saturday.
