B-Lab, situated 20 minutes from Kuala Lumpur city centre, is a quaint combination of three dining concepts all under one roof; an all-day European-style bakery, a laidback bistro that serves a range of non-halal fare, and a subdued wine bar for indulgent evenings. Situated within the Verve Suites residential area, B-Lab is a great place for a leisurely meal or intimate dinner.
Fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and hanging filament bulbs, B-Lab is a bright and welcoming eatery with an industrial colour scheme of white, black and red. Perfect for unwinding during breezy evenings, the simple yet spacious al fresco seating offers a view of suburban Mont Kiara.
Helmed by Yukichi Matsubara (formerly of The Loaf bakery), freshly-baked pastries, cakes and hard breads available here include French gorgonzola cheese foccacia, bacon quiche, espresso walnut loaves, and raisin almond sourdough while for lunch and dinner, the bistro serves a satisfying range of piping hot soups, al dente pastas, thin crust pizzas and indulgent porcine dishes. We recommend starting with your choice of deliciously creamy and sweet pumpkin or lightly-herbed broccoli soup (RM12) before sinking your teeth in the signature cider-braised pork belly with herb gnocchi (RM35), a decadent dish that’s both lavish and balanced in flavour.
Drinks-wise, B-Lab’s well-stocked bar serves imported wines priced from RM19 by the glass and RM99 by the bottle while cocktails such as pear and thyme fizz, espresso martinis and mango sangrias are priced at RM19 onwards. Meanwhile, dessert offerings here are unique to say the least, ranging from the fluffy strawberry short slice (RM10) cake to the divine mountain chocolate (RM11), all of which are helmed by B-Lab’s esteemed pastry chef Shigeru Hashizume.
A hidden gem in suburban Mont Kiara, B-Lab Bakery, Bistro & Bar’s innovative food and beverage offerings and tranquil dining ambience is a great alternative to the more lively eateries in Publika Shopping Mall, situated just 10 minutes away.
B-Lab is situated in VERVE Shops Mont Kiara, a commercial hub nestled within VERVE Suites, Mont Kiara. The best way to get to the area from Kuala Lumpur city centre is via taxi. A free shuttle bus service is also available if you are in Mid Valley Megamall, The Gardens Mall, and KL Sentral Station.
