Wildflowers KL, Petaling Street

Wildflowers KL is a new restaurant and bar located in the bustling Petaling Street. Brought to you by the folks of Merchant's Lane, the restaurant is housed in a refurbished heritage shop house, retrofitted with a shiny, modern bar on the ground floor. Meanwhile, the upstairs dining area gives off a sexy industrial vibe, interlaced with live plants and lots of natural lighting during the day.

On the menu, you will find creative Asian fusion dishes such as snacks, small plates, greens, carbs, proteins and desserts as well as craft cocktails and rice wines (tuak, soju, sake). They also offer a small selection of lunch items such as rice and noodles.

We started with the Mapo tofu with nachos (RM26), a fun, unique dish fusing the popular Chinese dish from Sichuan and tortilla chips from northern Mexican. Scoop up some of the flavorful, spicy mapo tofu, featuring silky smooth tofu and minced chicken, using the crisp nachos.. great finger food for sharing.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Deep fried salmon bites salad (RM34), which came with generous amounts of deep fried salmon chunks, mixed greens, cucumber, tomatoes, edamame and a delicious creamy roasted sesame sauce, which brought everything nicely together.

Some of the dishes from the menu, such as the proteins are only available from 6pm onwards. The Irish stew (RM42) had a wonderful homemade quality to it. The lamb shoulder has been braised until tender, with potatoes and carrots. Usually when I make it at home, I serve it with garlic bread, however Wildflower gives this an Asian twist, serving the stew with toasted Hainanese bread drizzled with truffle oil. Perfect for soaking up all that delicious sauce.

For dessert, we had the Deconstructed tiramisu (RM25), where the ladyfingers are soaked in Korean soju and served with coffee brittle, coffee jelly, and cream cheese. Absolutely luscious.

Their handcrafted cocktails are delightful; we highly recommend the Mugunghwa (RM34), their signature cocktail named after Korea's national flower, a concoction of soju, elderflower, lemon and lemonade soda. My kind of drink for sure!

Named in honour of Captain Jack Sparrow and the Jungle Bird is Jungle Jack Sparrow (RM40), made with white rum, Campari, gula melaka, lime and pineapple.
