The Meat & Wine Co., Publika: Grand Opening
I was invited to the grand opening of The Meat & Wine Co. recently. Thank you for such a great night, Nadine and Devan!
I decided to bring the bestie, who's also a journalist. So, us foodie-journos enjoyed a night of wining and dining which proved to be much-needed.
Check out the hipster chic interior of the restaurant!
Bruschetta duo (RM9) pictured above and below. The bruschetta comes with both the mushroom and diced tomato options.
Chicken yakitori - flame grilled chicken glazed with yakitori sauce. Normally RM18 for the appetiser portion. The portions you see here were adapted for just the two of us.
Another starter: the mini burgers (RM20), a mini version of the classic cheeseburger.
Smoked duck breast (RM40), definitely one of the better duck breasts I've tried. Juicy and tender and not overdone.
Seafood marinara (RM28). Quite a decent portion but could use a better tomato base. Perhaps it was underwhelming due to the succulent duck breast we had before that.
Grilled rib eye (prices for beef range from the mid 60s to 80s depending on cut, but so much more affordable than many meat places) was tasty and executed perfectly at medium. Although I am a medium rare eater myself, this was acceptable.
The jalapeño half chicken (RM30) is great for two to share. Don't need to be put off by the name as the jalapeño taste is rather muted by the overall taste of the chicken marinade.
Of course, living up to its name, Meat & Wine Co. also has a decent selection of wine though I stuck to prosecco throughout the night. We were also served bite size desserts which we did not manage to capture. We will definitely be back to try their other dishes soon.
