Dukes & Duchess, TTDI, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



The interior - not quite ready but looking attractive.
Ice cold beer! Each poured into an ice cold mug. Check out the frosty sides.

Champinones - sleek button mushrooms, chopped and sauteed with herbs and oil.

Artichoke Topped Toasts - tangy frays of thistle contrast the warm buttery toast.

Meat slides off the bone of these succulently sweet Hickory Smoked Ribs. That won't prevent you from gnawing the bone though - the marinade could be habit forming making you want to suck up every last drop. 

Nachos - notice the guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream served in separate bowls ensuring your nachos stay crisp while you casually enjoy drinks with amigos.

Owner, Lawrence Tee's, childhood favourites - Deep Fried Meatloaf Sticks. 


House wine - 104RM a bottle, cold and a pleasant sip for the price.

Not yet officially launched, but open and ironing out the kinks, is the swanky new Dukes and Duchess Bar & Restaurant in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. They currently offer light tapas and drinks early in the evening and lower the lights for more of a bar atmosphere later in the night. Already a thriving casual dining and drinking spot, Lorong Rahim Kajai 14 now has some added panache. While Dukes & Duchess is a little more up market than its neighbours, it still serves up bites and booze at competitive prices. Expecting to officially launch sometime mid April, I look forward to returning when they're in full swing.


Reason to visit:  swank place for a drink and small bites on that side of town

    1. Lovely ambience. Deep fried meatloaf wasn't a feature in my childhood either - I'm happy to give it a try now though. :-)
