Andre Bondar, Mitolo Wine Dinner, Bijan Restaurant, Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Bijan Restaurant in Changkat Bukit Bintang is well appreciated by those who enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, as it is one of a rare few authentic Malay kitchens where this is possible. A recent visit from wine maker, Andre Bondar of Mitolo Wines, inspired a wine dinner pairing some rich South Australian reds with a line up of local tastes. Guests were elated with the outcome and The Yum List got a few minutes to chat with Andre.

  1. folks say that wine is difficult to pair with malay food, but i strongly believe it's worth the effort! heh :D

    1. We had red that night, but I'd like to see some of the spicier dishes with a cool white. The sparkling went well with the starter. It's worth the experimentation.

  2. I also agree that wine is kinda hard to pair with malay food..

    1. Worth the challenge! :-) At Bijan they hold a nice selection so it's not too hard to get a good match.
