Pigs in blankets and the occasional beef sliders make for great accompaniment with beer on the average Friday nights out but sometimes, you'll crave for something a tad bit fancier.
Occasions like these call for oysters and wine. Here's where to go the next time you're craving for some delicate ocean sweetness with a spritz of lemon juice and a dash of tabasco sauce to go with a tall cold glass of bubbly.
A popular fixture along the Telawi row of restaurants in Bangsar for years now, Bait continues to stand strong with its offerings of fresh and juicy oysters (along with a long list of other seafood from mussels to freshwater yabbies) perfectly paired with a respectable list of wines.
