EAT : Cosy neighbourhood “Vin Wine Bar” at Sri Petaling

In areas such as Hartamas, Damansara or Bangsar, you’ll definitely be able to find establishments like bars and pub at these “happening” locations. But for some us, travelling to these areas can be quite a nightmare-ish given the distance from where we live and considering how ridiculously jammed it can get. Parking in these areas are virtually impossible during peak hours.

This is when you wished that there would be a neighbourhood bar for you to chill and hang out without going through the hassle. Why, say hello to Vin Wine Bar, a cosy boutique wine bar located in quiter side of the bustling Sri Petaling area. Sri Petaling is no stranger to the cafe hoppers since it houses  an array of hipster cafes. But Vin Wine Bar is an interesting new concept of wine bar & shop where you can enjoy a few glasses of wine or even just walk-in to purchase wines.

The wines available at Vin Wine Bar are sourced and handpicked carefully, taking into consideration the history of the winery and signature taste of the wines. This is the bar, where you come to be surprised by the varied selections of wine from New World regions and also the Old World. Just to show you how extensive their collections are the wines originates from the following countries; Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany and Lebanon too. There are in total more than one hundred different type of labels!

Like I said, you’ll be spoilt for choices or maybe overwhelmed with all the possible selections. If that happens, you can always opt to go for the Wine of the Month option, or better still, get help from the sales assistant to help you. Just let them know what your preferences are and enjoy your fine wine selection! Besides the typical red and white wine, Vin Wine Bar also carries rosé wine, sweet wine and sparkling wine! If wine is not your kind of poison, there is also imported crafted beer and even mead, that you can try!

I’m the kind of person who love to pair my drinks with food, because my love for food is insurmountable. To my delight, Vin Wine Bar have a very interesting choices of food for you to accompany your drinks. It ranges from appetizers of small bites to skewers to main meals like pasta and occasionally, a rice dish would make an appearance. Here are some of the dishes that I tried when I was at Vin Wine Bar.

Duck Confit | RM 35

Duck Confit | RM 35

Tomyam Argentine Red Shrimp Spaghetti | RM 30

Sakura Shrimp Spaghetti | RM 26

Nobi Pork Sausage Platter | RM 25

Ginger Chicken Wing | RM 20

These few dishes are some of the signature dishes that I tried, with my favourite being the Duck Confit! The confit was rich in flavour and very juicy too! The portion is a generous too, making it perfect for sharing. My next choice is the Tomyam Argentine Red Shrimp Spaghetti which is a spicy tomyam pasta, served with a huge prawn from Argentine!

Sabi Salty Chicken Popcorn | RM 15  //  Fishball | RM 8

VWB Lok Bok | RM 15

Shishamo Fish | RM 15 for three sticks

Shishamo Fish | RM 15 for three sticks

These are some of the tapas which you can have, together with your wine. The choices of available here is catered to the Malaysian tastebuds which you can tell by the VWB Lok Bok and Fishballs, both being a favourite snacks for most Malaysians alike. Frankly tho, I’m more inclined towards the Sabi Salty Chicken Popcorn which pairs perfectly which alcoholic drinks, of your choice depending on your poison. The salty combination with the bitter sweet alcohol sparks a new taste sensation! If you fancy skewers, there are many options for you to pick from but my favourite would be the prawns! Again, this one is salted, giving you the combination of bitterness combined with tinge of salt! I’m already drooling just thinking about it.

So, what are you waiting for? Are you up for an adventure to discover wines of different kind from various parts of the world in cosy, neighbourhood wine bar? If you are, hop on over to Vin Wine Bar!
