Bar Trigona

Speaking of Four Seasons, the hotel also recently opened the doors to its bar, Bar Trigona, bringing a new drinking spot to town. Named after the trigona bee, you can expect a signature cocktail or two to feature honey from its namesake insect, especially after you dine at the hotel's exquisite new Chinese restaurant.

53 floors high up, Altitude is Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur's casual afternoon tea, wine and craft beer spot. Besides its amazing view of the city, the restaurant also features a light all-day menu.

There's a new Japanese restaurant in Bangsar, one that offers the comfort foods we know and love from the cuisine. That and plenty of sake as well. If you're in the Telawi area and find yourself craving Japanese, pay Sumi a visit.

Tapas Club

Pavilion welcomes another tapas contender to their extensive ground floor al fresco dining area. Helmed by two Spanish chefs, you can expect authentic honest to goodness Spanish food over at Tapas Club.

Royal Canton

Previously bearing the name Canton Fare at Plaza Damansara, this rebranded Chinese restaurant moved its operations to DC Mall, giving themselves a name upgrade to Royal Canton. Dim sum and Hong Kong style roast meats seem to be highlights here, with the restaurant even serving roast goose on the weekends, a rare find in KL.

Long Napir Kitchen

Probably the most down-to-earth eatery on this list, Long Napir Kitchen is a Sarawakian restaurant promising affordable set lunch deals. Run by a group of East Malaysians, the restaurant's Sarawak Laksa has been touted as one of the city's best.
