We are back at Hilton Kuala Lumpur once again, this time around, we are here to titillate our palate with three new ELITE signature dishes + cocktails combination from Aviary Bar. If you haven’t already known, the original Aviary Bar was an iconic bar in which our famous Malaysian Jungle Bird cocktail was first curated.
Continuing the legacy, the new Aviary Bar, also known as the surreptitious home of the Jungle Bird, opens its door and welcomes cocktail enthusiasts and diners alike. Having tried their previous signature dishes, we had high expectation for the food review this time. Honestly, we were very impressed by the previous signature dishes offered, especially the cocktails. Without further ado, let’s see what they have in store for us.
1. Pan-fried Pot Stickers + Mexican Jungle Bird
Presenting first, the signature Mexican Jungle Bird cocktail which is a spin-off of the Original Jungle Bird. So, what makes the Mexican Jungle Bird different is the incorporation of curry leaves during the mixing process. Yes, you heard it right and we personally think it is a brilliant idea! That’s not only it! This combination comes with the signature Pan-fried Pot Stickers which is a great compliment to the cocktail. This is a signature dish you shouldn’t miss out!
2. Prawn Tempura + Aviary Tales
Next we have the Aviary Tales, as the name suggests, it is Aviary Bar‘s signature cocktail which is delightfully refreshing! Perfect for those who are looking for an easy-to-drink cocktail. Needless to say, the delicate cucumber taste with a sour note from the lemon juice and the unique flavor from the pineapple juice is just so refreshing. On top of that, it lip-smackingly complemented the Prawn Tempura with housemade wasabi mayo. Definitely a combination that never fails to impress.
3. Amritsari Fish Tacos + Malaysian Mule
Last but not least, the signature Malaysian Mule which is also the longest standing cocktail on the menu according to the friendly bartender. This cocktail is packed with flavors which mainly came from the fresh lemongrass, ginger and kaffir lime juice accompanied with a crisp taste and tangy aroma from the ginger beer. An incredible indulgence especially when paired with the lip-smacking Amritsari Fish Tacos! As explained by the chef, this signature tacos recipe is inspired by the city of Amritsar, a Northwestern Indian state in Punjab.
