Break Into Song at Spitalfield's Gastrobar
If you have ever visited Spitalfields Market in London you would have been impressed by this one-stop destination for food, fashion, arts, music, and events. It’s the same for Spitalfield’s Gastrobar in Kuala Lumpur. If you haven’t been there yet, you’re missing out on plenty of gastronomical fancies.
A cosy corner of Atria Mall is home to the creation of Frank Paul Klueter, a well-established German expat in Malaysia. More than three years ago, Frank opened Spitalfield’s Gastrobar based on his knowledge and experience of delivering an array of international and local flavours to the Malaysian market. At Spitalfield’s, you will find signature Spanish ribs that literally melt off the bone, succulent pork cutlet in cream sauce served with German spaetzle, freshly-made pastas, proper pizzas and locally-inspired meal options too. Don’t forget to try the ‘Currywurst’, a delicious traditional German sausage dish, or the Adobo from the Philippines, cooked with a good infusion of fresh ginger. It’s not all about meat with daily specials that also include roast salmon, and red hot pizzas served fresh from the stone oven are great for sharing. Try their good valued red or white house wines, or push the boat out with one of the selected handcrafted wines like Tirazis from Chile, a robust, full-bodied red with a striking aroma.
Have your lunch anyway you want it, either quickly or at a leisurely pace. If you happen to work near Atria Mall, drop in to Spitalfields for the value-for-money set lunches starting at RM 17++ from 11am until 2.30pm. Lunch options include; chicken honey mustard, Pacific fish and chips, and Arrabiata spaghetti.
The Nightingale sings
Continued developments at Spitalfield’s has led to separating the cosy dining area from the lively bar, The Nightingale. The Nightingale rocks with DJs twice a week and live music every other night, except Sundays, where you will be able to request your favourite songs. Open until late, it’s quite common to sometimes witness the crowd jump up and jive along to the band. Kick off your shoes or just let your hair down and chill out whilst you enjoy a chilled beer, cocktails, or some wine. There are also a few hidden gems on offer with the highly limited edition 18 years old Japanese Whisky
Hakushu still in stock, and special German beers, some of which are not available at any other outlets in Kuala Lumpur. Don’t hesitate to ask one of the helpful bar staff about what’s new and what’s on offer. Try a shooter of fresh local Tuak or ask the bartender to mix it in to a cocktail. Happy Hour lasts until 8pm all day, every day.
Be it simply a drink or hearty meal at Spitalfield’s Gastrobar in Atria Mall, it will leave you with good memories of international and local flavours, not to mention a song in your heart!
