THERE were plenty of food, drinks and good music at the Pearl International Hotel in Kuala Lumpur during the launch of the Australian Food and Wine Fair at the d’Bar@One.
About 150 guests, both invited and walk-in guests, turned up for the event despite a downpour and the massive traffic jam in the city that day.
The evening picked up casually over Australian wine and food, which was prepared at the hotel.
The hotel’s public relations manager Karen Tan said the event was a prelude to what was being offered at the hotel for the month-long promotion, which ends on April 26.
She added that during the promotion the bar would feature over 30 different Australian wine labels, including Australian food.
Some of the wine labels are Yellow Tail, Artisan, Katnook, Peter Lehmann, Elderton, Yunbar, Marben, Outback, Stonemason and Ballast Stone.
The food includes Cheese Canape, Spicy Beef Salad, Grilled Lamb Rack with BBQ Sauce, Oyster Rockefeller, Lamb Spring Roll, Streaky Beef Slices with Scallops, White Wine Mussels, Boeuf Au Vin (an adaptation of a famous French cuisine, ‘Coq Au Vin’), Lamb Stew, Beer Batter Fish, Lamb Satay and Bake Cheese Cake with chunky Asutralian Macadamia Nuts.
“Tonight guests will get a taste of what is in store for the month and we have samples of the dishes and wines for all.
“During the fair, patrons can either order from the a la carte menu or buy back the meat to be prepared at home. Otherwise they can also get it cooked according to their preference, be it stewed, pan-fried, braised, roasted or grilled,” she said.
The ala carte dishes starts from RM15++, while wine price starts from RM68++.
