Unwind @ Bait

Lovely Bait

Lovely Bait

‘When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain’ is the motto of the recently renovated Bait in Bangsar, and we heart it, definitely. A team of waiters in matching jeans and stripy T-shirts serve up fresh oysters and tapas with a slow-food bias: we highly recommend the not-to-be missed calamari stuffed with chorizo. It’s this salty, crunchy mix of grilled calamari and slightly chili chorizo that you have been looking for – so simple, yet wicked good.

The décor – wood and lurid neon art pieces mixing up with wood – gives the restaurant a stylish and urban feel, in a laid back atmosphere, making Bait the perfect afterwork  for a cosy evening or a refreshing week-end lunch. In the crowded Telawi row of western bars and restaurants, Bait stands out as the ideal hipster bar / restaurant able to cater for all your needs; proposing delicious food, an honest wine list and refined cocktails and alcohols. The whisky afficionados will enjoy the famous single mat japanese whisky, Black Nikka, and other delicious cocktails.

Being a white wine lover, I would recommend the highly pleasurable Pinot grigio – perfect ingredient to unwind after a long week. So much that I forgot to take a picture of the bill. There you go,instead  a fun inspiring motto at the back of Bait.
