[Muslim-friendly] Ginger KL is the newest brunch spot offering modern Australian cuisine with an Indian twist.
Ginger is newly opened by the Brick House Group, which is behind successful establishments such as Pokok, Daun, and Popsicola.
Ginger KL in Bamboo Hills
Ginger KL is located in Bamboo Hills, a new 16-acre dining enclave located in Segambut. This new enclave houses multiple restaurants/cafes such as Botanica+Co, Starbucks, Nok Yung Fine Thai Cuisine, and Kampai Yakiniku Japanese restaurant.
We’ve visited Bamboo Hills a few times and always enjoyed the space here with its faux-waterfall entrance, and beautifully curated garden and lake in the middle of the development.
Ginger KL offers Australian cuisine with an Indian twist
Newly opened in December, Ginger KL is a stunning casual dining restaurant in a glasshouse concept.
Facing the central zen garden, the restaurant’s huge revolving barn door opens into a classy, romantic interior space with beautiful chandeliers and brass decor finishes.
We visited Ginger KL two weeks after it had opened for dinner service. While the restaurant predominantly offers Australian dishes – we really like the touch of Indian and local flair with offerings such as Burnt Butter Ulam, Ammas’s Crab Rasam, and Chicken 65 alongside Burrata, pastas, and lamb shank.
Ginger KL offers different day and night menus, with a counter filled with pastries and cakes as well if your intention here is solely desserts and teatime.
Dinner at Ginger KL
We started our dinner here with the delectable Burnt Butter Ulam (RM27) – berries, pomelo, daun selum, watercress, pomegranate, tomatoes, and pinenut noisette.
We enjoyed the earthy and herbal crunch of daun selum – which is well complimented by the juicy mandarin pulps, berries, and pomelo. The salad is perfect is you’re looking for a light dish for your meal.
For the Indian touch, we ordered the Chicken 65 (RM23). The fried chicken pieces were tender with lovel crispy batter. We enjoyed the addition of cumin seeds in the batter, which had a nice sour hint from yoghurt.
Beef Rigatoni and Seafood Spaghettini
For mains, we tried the Beef Rigatoni (RM38). While the portion was a bit small for the price, we thought the flavours were lovely with flavourful beef brisket streaks, carrots and cherry tomatoes in a homely tomato sauce.
In comparison, we thought the Scallop, Ikura, Prawn Spaghettini (RM49) was better value for money. The seafood pasta featured four scallops, three prawns and a good dollop of ikura on top of seafood-broth infused spaghettini. We enjoyed the fresh seafood, and the pop of briny goodness of the ikura. A sprinkle of cili padi enlivened the dish.
Ginger KL also offers plenty of crafted drinks. Our Chameleon (RM18) was a refreshing accompaniment – called so as the addition of lime juice to the drink would change its colour from purple to a brighter hue.
Overall, we enjoyed our dinner here at Ginger. The service here was excellent and we thought the premise was tastefully done. We recommend Ginger as a good spot for a casual meal with friends and family.
