A plethora of colour and flavours


A whimsical wisteria tree lies smack in the centre of Willow Restaurant.

Willow KL is located on the premises of the prestigious W Kuala Lumpur Hotel, just across the Petronas Twin Towers – this was where we got a breathtaking view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

Walking into the restaurant and bar, you can’t help but notice the whimsical wisteria tree smack in the centre – the striking decor made quite an impact with its purple hue.

The name of the restaurant is based on the world’s longest-distance migratory birds, the Willow warbler, which also reflects the limitless freedom employed in the choice of ingredients used in the food and drinks.

Purple Sour – Red dragonfruit, lime juice, kaffir lime and asam boi; and Mediterranean Breeze which was watermelon, lime and rosemary. Both were equally refreshing and rejuvenating.Purple Sour – Red dragonfruit, lime juice, kaffir lime and asam boi; and Mediterranean Breeze which was watermelon, lime and rosemary.

You can’t put your finger on something to say this dish is distinctly from this place or that, as they are not confined to any region.

The innovative menu is curated by head chef Timothy Wang, with the intention of utilising different ingredients from different parts of the world, and elaborating on the exotic flavours that have been translated into the dishes and beverages.

We understand that peanut butter could be a hit or miss for some people, but we liked it.Peanut Butter and Jelly with quite different aesthetics.
