Ambrosia Wines @ Taman Desa, KL is not a stranger to wine connoisseur as they are well-known for supplying a solid selection of quality wines for the past few years.
Ambrosia Wines @ Taman Desa, KL
Offering over 200 variants of wines and over 100 labels of Single Malt Whisky, Japanese Whisky, and Craft Beers, they received a lot of requests from customers for food pairing and a place to chill as well. Hence, Ambrosia Wine underwent a makeover last September and transformed into a restaurant where guests can also enjoy great tapas to go with their favorite bottle of wine while having a good time with friends and family.
I was greeted by a cozy and romantic ambiance, thanks to the warm lights and industrial interior design inspired by European wine cellar. This is just what I need to relax after a long and hectic work day!
For those who prefer privacy, there are 3 private rooms available, complete with karaoke system so you can dine and chat comfortably.
With so many quality wines from around the world such as Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain, and more, I’m certainly spoilt for choice. What sets Ambrosia Wines apart from others is they have wines that are specially curated. This means you can’t find them at other places in KL. As you can see from the photo above, we had Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Wirrega Vineyards ‘Sfera’ Shiraz, and Pioneer Road Cabernet Sauvignon.
I was recently at Ambrosia Wines for a wine pairing session with Western dishes.
Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Grape Variety: 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon
When these tropical flavors peak, and just before natural acid is degraded by summer heat, the grapes are machine harvested in the cool of the night to capture freshness. Fresh, grassy, unripe gooseberry and tropical fruit nose, showing good varietal character, however, there is little power or strength. Light gooseberry and tropical fruit aftertaste.

Seafood like these plump and juicy mussels go well with white wine and hence, the sauce is also cooked with white wine. It tastes so amazing especially when we dip the French bread into the sauce. Don’t waste a single drip of it!
I hardly eat Spaghetti Bolognese because I don’t like the sourness of tomatoes but this dish was different! The combination of Shiitake mushroom, bacon and tomato makes it a good sauce because the sourness of tomato seemed to have toned down.
This deep fried pork belly at Ambrosia Wine Taman Desa is very appealing and addictive! Deep fried til crunchy on the outside while it maintained juicy and tender on the inside.
Pioneer Road Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Ripe dark cherries, chocolate, and a hint of crushed leaf. Youthful fine tannins to finish. Perfect with pizza and red meat dishes.

Pulled pork pizza was very satisfying when accompanied with big chunks of juicy, tangy pineapple. Topped with bacon, jalapeños and cilantro, it totally upped the dish to another level of yumminess.
Love this not overly heavy but well seasoned spaghetti. The smoked duck breasts taste heavenly and juicy. I can’t stop myself from having a few more slices.
Pork ribs with strawberry sauce is a pretty unique dish – I’ve not seen this anywhere before, have you? Think sweet and sour pork but the taste of pork ribs were naturally enhanced with the sweetness and sourness of strawberry.
Wirrega Vineyards ‘Sfera’ Shiraz
Grape Variety: Shiraz
There is a great intensity of fruit in ‘Sfera’ that showcases the excellent viticultural practices that Wirrega Vineyards strives for. The intense fruit is matched by concentration of color with excellent palate and flavor complexity, largely attributable to the quality of winemaking. ‘Sfera’ Shiraz is a fantastic expression of the uniqueness of Wirrega Vineyards.

Can’t say no to this perfect crispy crusted Greek lamb pizza topped with a generous amount of melted cheese and herbs. You gotta try it!
If you love spicy food, you’ll love this Fried Jalapenos wrapped with bacon. If you love bacon, you’ll love this Fried Jalapenos wrapped with bacon too! Guess why I love this? I LOVE BACON!
Last but not least, I had this deep fried pork ribs. We always eat deep fried chicken but not so much of deep fried pork ribs and I find that this was rather interesting!
