The Forking Cork Wine & Whisky Entrepreneur Bar | Taman OUGTuesday, August 23, 2016
Busy days calls for a break in between and I have got the perfect spot for those of you who are looking for a nice quiet spot to chill over good food and drinks plus you might even meet some new people too. The Forking Cork located at Taman OUG definitely catches people's attention with the name itself. This wine and whisky bar is not only a bar on its own but also doubles as a meeting point for entrepreneurs to connect and exchange ideas.
The Forking Cork boast of its wide range of wines from RM99 and unlike other restaurants with their own wine list, you actually can step into their wine cellar and choose your preferred wine. From a range of old world wines to new world wines, I am sure you would be able to find your favourite. Don't worry if you are new to wines because their knowledgeable staff will be there to guide you. I, myself learnt a lot about wine drinking from how to differentiate good wine from bad wine, where can we get good quality wine, determining the wine from its aroma and color, etc.
Besides having a huge range of drinks for you to relax and chill, The Forking Cork serves some pretty decent dishes as well. We had the Spaghetti Carbonara with Bacon & Sausage (RM24) which was creamy and very delectable. Pasta cooked al-dente, this plate of carbonara was really satisfying.
Their Grilled Lamb Rack with Plum Sauce (RM40) was well done, slightly pink and nicely paired with the plum sauce. Honestly I can say that I am very happy with their mashed potatoes because it was so creamy and nicely seasoned too.
The dish I would really recommend would be the Pan Seared Norwegian Salmon with Avoacdo Lemon Cream Sauce (RM30) which was seared just nicely leaving a slight pinkish tinge to it. Paired with their creamy mash and avocado sauce, this was superb.
Pork lovers, try their Grilled Iberico Pork with Honey Mustard Glaze (RM45) which is well prepped and grilled. Tender and juicy, the honey mustard glaze gives it that additional kick of flavour. The Pan Seared Avocado Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon (RM28) would be a wise choice as well with flavourful and creamy stuffing plus that crispy savory bacon.
If you are looking for something light, try their Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Skewers (3pcs/RM15) or their Baked NZ Mussels topped with Cheese & White Wine Sauce (4pcs/RM18). Both are great appetizers to start off your meal or maybe even for those who just want a light meal.
With drinks, you definitely need something to pair it with so get their Deep Fried Chicken Popcorn with Honey Mustard Sauce or their Deep Fried Shrimp Paste Chicken Wings. Love the Shrimp Paste Chicken Wings which had a very distinctive taste to it and fried really nicely. Not overly oily, these two will make great snacks while you mingle the night away. I would say that The Forking Cork is a great place for a night out with the girls or even just to meet some entrepreneurs. With their wide selection of drinks plus good food, you should really check them out.
