Istana Hotel's Urban Bistro stays true to the Aussie style

Formal: Doyle signing a plaque to launch the Urban Bistro.
WARM colours, spacious seating area with an open bar are what to expect of Istana Hotel’s new Urban Bistro.

The restaurant, with its modern Australian (Mod Oz) concept, promises to be the new chill-out venue for city goers.

At its recent launch by Australian Deputy High Commissioner to Malaysia Peter Doyle, guests had the opportunity to sample dishes newly created by chef Sarah Wilton for the outlet.

Wilton kicked off the evening with a selection of Canap├ęs before moving on to the Spiced Roasted Pumpkin and Macadamia Soup and then to the main dish of Crisp Skin Salmon, Poached Prawn, Cucumber, Herb and Shallot Salad with Chilli Jam.

Paolicia Duo Jazz entertained the guests.

Creative: Wilton with a selection of miniature desserts.
“The all-new Urban Bistro is not just about the Mod Oz style but also about good food and creating a place to dine and chill after work with family and friends,” Istana Hotel food and beverage director William Harley-Fleming said.

The outlet was launched in true Australian style. Not only was INXS’ songs played when Doyle was walking in but also a Didgeridoo music performance during the opening ceremony.

“Food must be colourful, fresh and vibrant. It is my way of the Mod Oz concept,” Wilton said.

The 29-year-old head chef of the outlet ended the night with a miniature dessert selection while guests sipped Australian beer and wine throughout the night.
