2. Grano Pasta Bar

It’s evident that Proof Pizza + Wine makes some of the best slices in town, so it’s only fitting that it starts an accompanying restaurant specialising in everyone’s next favourite Italian dish: pasta. And boy, the variety will spoil you.

Address: Next to Proof Pizza + Wine at APW Bangsar

Opening hours: 12.15pm to 3pm; 6pm to 10.30pm (closed on Mondays)

Telephone number: 03 2788 3595

3. Skive

What was once Tous Le Jours in Bangsar – and then another bakery – has now become a restaurant-bakery named Skive.

Carrying a fun attitude, which is clear from its tagline, “delicious gallivanting”, the place holds great promise with a wide variety of offerings on the menu – many of which have been given a playful twist. The house-churned ice cream here, we hear, is a must-try, too.

Address: Ground Floor, Telawi Square, No 41, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru

Opening hours: 9am to 9pm (Monday-Friday); 7am to 9pm (weekends)

Telephone number: 03 2202 0313

4. 8haus

The space is charming and minimalistic with industrial accents, but the fusion restaurant’s crowd-pleaser is none other than its pork ribs.

However, most of the other items on the menu also feature different variations of pork.

Address: 8, Jalan Sin Chew Kee, 50150 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 9am to 11pm (Sunday-Thursday); 9am to 12am (Friday-Saturday)

Telephone number: 03 2110 0887

5. Entier

With a nose-to-tail approach to French cuisine, helmed by the creative chef Masashi Horiuchi (whose vast experience in Europe includes five years as the sous chef at the Michelin-starred L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in London), Entier, at Alila Bangsar, was undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated openings in Kuala Lumpur.

The restaurant, which is by the same group behind Botanica + Co and Bocosan, officially opened on May 11.
