This chic and cosy venue is home to a crowd of food lovers, stylish travelers meeting up, afternoon tea aficionados, all in search of an exquisite place to enjoy one of Kuala Lumpur best afternoon tea while being serenading by local jazz bands. The famous tea sets are available in two flavors: malaysian or english. A definite must try! Now let’s take a look at the new menu, its tapas and cocktails created by chef Darrell O’Neill.
ONSIXFIVE, aka IVIV at the Intercontinental hotel, elegantly encapsulates the baroque-vintage twee with its colorful unassorted chairs, oversized armchairs and designer tables overlooking a tropical garden. While the design definitely counts in its favor, the relaxed atmosphere and creative menu are the cherry on its tapas. There’s no greasy chorizo or watery patatas bravas here, but top quality ingredients cooked in small, perfectly formed gourmet dishes. The Wagyu burger is too good to be true, with its generous and perfectly cooked slice of meat sublimed by a crispy on the outside and soft on the inside bun. I had a spring fling with the Lobster tacos, exquisite and fresh with their mango bites. There’s a great range of tea, wines, cocktails, and an inventive menu of tapas as you would have guessed.
As per the intriguing name, IVIV or ONESIXFIVE is the lot address of the Intercontinental on Jalan Ampang. But as per the venue’s motto, “it’s not just an address, its an occasion to indulge”
