Whisky Tango Foxtrot_1

This speakeasy-style lounge, showcasing whisky and cigars, is making Medan Damansara even more of a magnet for patrons needing a nice night out after office hours. Shrouded in masculine shades on the second floor above this row’s renowned restaurants, Whisky Tango Foxtrot might look like a gentleman’s club, but tongue-in-cheek signboard aside, rest assured that women are welcome here.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_2

Cigars

Cigars aplenty for aficionados, hailing from Cuba, Cameroon, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and more. Folks forking out membership fees can secure private humidors inscribed with their own initials to store their purchased cigars.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_3

Reservations Recommended

The lounge isn’t large, so it’ll easily be crowded once night falls. Reservations are recommended.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_4

Whiskies and Wine

Whiskies and wine are available only by the bottle; our wallets might endure a hit. Whisky Tango Foxtrot_5

Order-in Food: La Risata

Whisky Tango Foxtrot has no kitchen, but the silver lining is that customers can order food to be brought up from Medan Damansara’s eateries, including La Risata, where the burrata cheese and cherry tomato salad is worth the wait.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_6

House-made gnocchi with lamb chorizo sausages and ricotta cheese in red pepper sauce. Whisky Tango Foxtrot_7

La Risata House Wine

Not consumed at Whisky Tango Foxtrot, but La Risata’s house wine is well chosen.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_11

Order-in Food: Gills

Theoretically, Whisky Tango Foxtrot’s customers can also order from Gills, but we opted to stroll there instead, simply for old times’ sake, since it had been years since our most recent visit to this Indian institution.Whisky Tango Foxtrot_12

Gills seems to be less popular these days, but that’s a shame, since plenty of pleasures remain on its menu, including kebabs mixed with minced chicken, lentils, potatoes, beans and cheese. Whisky Tango Foxtrot_13

Good gravy: Lamb keema with eggs, herbs and spices pairs perfectly with ‘maharaja’ pilau rice. Whisky Tango Foxtrot_14

Wine and lassi to wrap up a weekday night when thoughts of work needed to be banished. Whisky Tango Foxtrot_15Whisky Tango Foxtrot_16
