It's Wine Time @ Ambrosia Wine, Taman Danau Desa, Kuala Lumpur




Is it wine time yet? :p
After a long day at work, there's nothing better than unwinding with a glass or two of wine paired with good food and great company. Last week, we had the opportunity to check out the newly refurbished Ambrosia Wine at Taman Danau Desa, Kuala Lumpur. From the moment we step inside, we were completely awed by the intriguing selection of wines lining the walls and the contemporary and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the handful of wines, Ambrosia also offers imported beer, Japan whisky, Scotland Whisky along with great food such as pizza, tapas, pasta, grill and local fusion cuisine with a twist prepared by the talented chef to pair with your drink.




Ambrosia boasts an ample list of over 300 brands of wine that span regions across Australia, Italy, France and many others. You'll find a variety of wines here, including sparkling, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, merlot, pinot noir and dessert wines.

Decor-wise, Ambrosia exudes a cozy atmosphere, dimly lighted with nice rustic decor and comfy couches. The bar also has three private rooms with Karaoke systems that can accommodate up to 10 persons for parties or events.

We started our evening with the crisp and light Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, a blend of 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon. Bright, pale straw colour with water like hue, the wine's refreshing taste leads from unripe gooseberry with a tropical fruit aftertaste.

Mussels White Wine sauce served with French bread RM18.00
Such a great start to our meal, the succulent mussels drenched in tasty white wine sauce truly hits the spot.
Shiitake Mushroom, Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti RM17.90
The al dente pasta tossed in a delightful tangy tomato paste was flavourful and generously laden with bacon and shiitake mushroom.

Deep Fried Pork Belly RM19.00
Juicy and succulent, the luscious pork belly makes an ideal accompaniment to either white or red wine.

The second wine we sampled was the Pioneer Road Cabernet Sauvignon, specially selected from premium vineyards throughout Langhorne Creek which was vinified using a combination of fermentation styles and American oak. The medium-bodied wine was mildly spicy with refreshing notes of forest fruits and vanilla, finishing with soft tannins and excellent length.

Pineapple Pork Pizza with Bacon, Jalapenos & Cilantro RM21.00
The pizza crust was thick and crispy and generously topped with pineapple, pork, bacon, jalapenos and cilantro.


Smoked Duck Spaghetti RM17.90
Hearty and rich, the flavourful spaghetti has a lovely depth of flavour perfectly complemented with the tender smoked duck.

Pork Ribs with Strawberry Sauce RM19.00
The ribs glazed with sweet and tangy strawberry sauce was tender yet crisp. Simply irresistible and pairs beautifully with the bold flavoured cabernet sauvignon.


Sfera Shiraz
This was my favourite wine of the evening! Intensely flavourful, the wine has a smooth mouthfeel with soft tannin lead to a lingering fruity finish. 'Sfera' Shiraz is a fantastic expression of the uniqueness of Wirrega Vineyards which showcases the excellent viticultural practices of the vineyards.


Greek Lamb Pizza RM20.00
Delicious pizza topped with feta, onion, basil and flavourful lamb.

Jalapenos wrapped with Bacon RM18.00
Fried to golden brown perfection, the bacon wrapped Jalapeno were tasty and mildly spicy.


Deep Fried Pork Ribs RM17.00
The ribs were tender with crunchy crust and full of flavour, goes brilliantly well with the delightful Shiraz.


The three Australian wines, Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Sfera Shiraz 2013 and Pioneer Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 are available exclusively at Ambrosia Wines.


Ambrosia Wines is a wonderful place to swing by for some wine and bite to eat. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting, as well as the hearty nibbles and extensive wine selection, not to mention, the friendly and attentive staff.
