OWNED AND OPERATED by an expat couple from different continents, one vegetarian, one a dedicated meat eater, the in.uences at play in Savory Bistro’s menu are diverse. With attention to detail and broad tastes developed through joint decades in Malaysia, the offerings cover the gamut from specialist Korean dishes through the best cheeseburger this side of Chicago to beef tenderloin balanced on a garlicky fluffy pile of mashed potatoes.
Sue and her partner in the kitchen have created a neighborhood jazz bar snuggled in the newly developed 10 Kiara condominium tower. Chocolate brown walls, a piano and double bass feature, a clear view of the kitchen and an outdoor terrace for those balmy summer nights, make this a Mont Kiara destination to add to your address book.The easy relationship between all those working in the Savory Bistro translates to an atmosphere that is homey, friendly and unbeatable. Wednesday nights, the piano and bass come alive with coffee house jazz and it’s not hard to imagine the place over.owing as chicken parmesan on focaccia, philly cheesesteak and 1.5-inch thick steaks decorate the tables. Since Sue’s partner is vegetarian, ample space on the menu is given to vegetarian tapas delights, pot pies and other delicacies.The menu is pork free though a generous bar with a well chosen selection of red and white wines, local and imported beers and the odd single malt nicely complement the coffee machine holding pride of place. Even the iced water is thought through. “We add orange to the water to give it a citrus edge and all our water is specially .ltered using imported Korean technology” notes Sue with a smile. It’s the small details that make the meal, the people that make the place.This is one place where meal and atmosphere conspire to create an eminently memorable experience. Breakfast, lunch or dinner – make your way to the Bistro. You won’t be sorry.
