As Shelley Yu’s approaches its one year anniversary in November, Team Marie Claire paid a visit to the Nyonya food and cocktail bar nestled along Bangsar’s Jalan Telawi where resident mixologists James Cooper and Anand Pirinyuang paired drinks to suit our personalities, and also created an exclusive drink just for us inspired by the Marie Claire woman.
Only for October, enjoy the MC Goal Digger at Shelley Yu’s for RM32++.

Review: I usually like my whiskey with water, so the fact that they’ve added, among other things, tamarind to it, made me wonder if this remixed version would still satisfy. This is what you’ll experience with your first sip: a sharp hit of whiskey that tapers into an oozy warm sweetness, with a hint of tartness. Though not a drink for just anyone – no one else on the team liked it, I wouldn’t mind mixing things up a bit (pun not intended) occasionally with this cocktail.
