Palate Palette Restaurant in KL

A quirky restaurant nearby Changkat Bukit Bintang

Palate Palette Restaurant & Bar looks more like a whimsical garden rather than a restaurant. Located in a pre-war terraced house nearby Changkat Bukit Bintang, and divided into a lounge (upstairs) and restaurant (downstairs), its fairytale-like vibe makes you feel like you are visiting a friend’s house, rather than eating at a trendy restaurant.

Shady trees, pebbled walkways, flowers and lots of colourful tables and chairs contribute to its classic summer style and the atmosphere is casual with people dressed informally. Service is quick and a selection of the latest hits plays unobtrusively in the background, allowing for easy conversation.

Palate Palette’s décor is weird and wonderful. The white walls have fun and funky graphics (think a giant peacock) and colourful art in all forms, done by local artists. One of our favourites is a loud, pop-out installation of fake flamingo heads in shockingly-bright colours, with glowing eyes and fake fur.

Besides that, there are carousel horses and mismatched furniture that looks like it has been sourced from a junkyard sale. In reality, though, each piece of furniture has been carefully handpicked – some pieces are old, others are new, but almost all contribute to make Palate Palette look totally individualistic.

The food is just as memorable, with arrangements that are just as quirky as the restaurant’s décor – they definitely provide a good photo opportunity.

Offering western food with a twist, if you come in a big group don’t be shy to order and sample a little bit of everything: prices are reasonable and portions generous. Try the chilli shrimp aglio olio, smoked salmon pasta or moo-rugula – rib-eye seared in garlic rosemary oil with arugula and green apple salad. Other good mainstays were the shrimp and avocado salad, ‘chicken lollipops’ (fried chicken) served with roasted chilli mayo and tempura-fried dory fish with potato and yam chips.

Palate Palette has a wide variety of dessert choices (including a delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting). The favourite of the night was the ginger crème brûlée served with an almond biscotti – it was a luscious, interesting choice because the mild, peppery ginger taste contrasted beautifully with the sweet crème brûlée.

To get there by walking from Jalan Bukit Bintang, head towards Jalan Gading and take the second right onto Jalan Sultan Ismail. Next, turn left onto Jalan Berangan, right onto Jalan Nagasari and then the first left onto Jalan Mesui: Palate Palette is just up the road. The nearest LRT stop is the Raja Chulan station.
