Vina Del Rey at Nexus, Bangsar South: Restaurant Review
Here’s another new watering hole with potential: Vina Del Rey, a wine bar in Bangsar South’s Nexus complex.
Impressive Wine List
Vina Del Rey has an immensely impressive list of wine offered by the glass; we lost count of how many exactly, but they comprise varieties that span France, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand & more, mostly clocking in between RM25 & RM35 each.
For this round, we tried South Africa’s Barista Pinotage, a fascinating creation with rich notes of both coffee & chocolate. It’d be fun to pair this with food – Vina Del Rey hasn’t launched its kitchen, but this wine might fare fairly well with meat & cheeses.
We’ve had coffee as tequila in this post, plus coffee as wine, so here’s one more for the road: Coffee as beer.
Coffee As Beer
Scotland’s Harvietoun Old Engine Oil English Porter-style beer, with a scent of coffee grounds & a flavour of creamy coffee, buttered toffee & burnt toast. Reputedly the perfect beer with which to make an ice cream float.
