Don’t know what’s good around Bangsar? Here’s a list of my favourite restaurants to eat!
I like everything about this Italian restaurant. From delicious food, good selection of wine, enthusiastic service and a pleasant atmosphere. Most importantly is they have been consistent over the years. What’s a must try in Vineria.IT is the wood-fired oven pizza, but what I enjoy most are the Abbacchio Scottadito (marinated grilled lamb racks served with roasted potatoes) and Linguine Gamberi E Pesto (tiger prawns pan fried with brandy in a classic basil pesto pasta). There’s also a lovely patio with comfortable lounge seats where you can relax and unwind with a glass of vino (or two) in the evening.

2. PINCE & PINTS RESTAURANT & BAR
Pince & Pints is a lobster house originated from Singapore, where its wild live lobsters are air-flown from the Atlantic Coast. Trust me on this one, these lobsters are fresh and delicious. My favourite is the Grilled Live Whole Lobster. The hand-cut french fries are really tasty too. Big plus! Chili Lobster and Lobster Noodles are good options if you prefer oriental flavours. I always like to enjoy these lobsters with a glass of Chardonnay. It would be advisable to make reservations to avoid any disappointments.

3. THE BEATO STEAKHOUSE
Calling all carnivorous who takes their steak seriously. This is one meat haven. Beato specializes in dry-aged beef in various cuts and weights you can choose from. Good value, great service and amazing steaks! Aside from their beef, the grilled lamb rack, tomato bruschetta and creamed spinach are really good too. Beato also has another branch in Publika, but Bangsar would be a better choice for its ambience.

4. Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft (Non Halal)
Leonardo’s is located amongst the quiet residential area of Jalan Bangkung. A cosy restaurant that’s known for their pork dishes from Barbequed Pork Ribs, Iberico Pork Tenderloin, Pork Satay and even Bah Kut Teh. If that’s too much pork to digest, there’s none pork dishes like the Grilled Lamb Rack and Baked Cod Fish which are also delicious. And of course, there’s salad and other vegetarian items for the non meat eaters. Book a seat on the second floor which is the bar/wine loft with high ceiling if you prefer a more relaxing ambience where there’s both high tables or big comfortable sofa seats.
Address: 61 Jalan Bangkung, Bukit Bandaraya, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

Opening Hours: 5:00PM – 12:00AM
5. The Ming Room (Non Halal)
The Ming Room is under the Oriental Group of Restaurants. Best Chinese restaurant and best dim sum in Bangsar if you’re asking me. My must orders are 1) BBQ Pork Buns – buns are so soft and pork fillings are delicious, 2) Pan Fried Carrot Cake – stir fried in high heat until slightly brownish and fragrantful. The Roast Suckling Pig and Lap Mei Fan are very popular items especially during Chinese New Year. It gets booked out in that season and weekends during lunch hour. So be ready to get turned down or make early reservations if you are not prepared to wait.
