Never mind if there’s no winter wonderland in Malaysia. Nobu Kuala Lumpur has rolled out the white carpet with Executive Chef Philip Leong and his talented team conjuring a selection of festive dishes including a whimsical Snowman dessert for this year’s celebratory Christmas & New Year menus.
Featured in the Christmas Omakase menu (RM590++ per person) from 22-25 December, the cute ‘snowball’ of Green Tea Panna Cotta with White Chocolate Mousse had us thoroughly charmed. Clumps of Green Tea Sponge complete the superbly delightful and subtly sweet creation.
Our festive spirits were suitably raised at the preview with November’s Cocktail of the Month, cheekily named Bloody Goose. A potent concoction of vodka, tequila, blood orange, lemon juice, egg white and vanilla syrup, its sweetish-tangy taste has enough punch to leave us gaily lightheaded.
The sneak preview comprised several key dishes curated from both the Christmas and New Year’s festive menus. After devouring delicious deep-fried lotus root and raw salmon/tuna canapés, our palate was feted to Sushi Bar Moriawase — an enticing triumvirate of Toro Tartar, Seafood Harumaki and Junsai Ponzu with Mango Miso.
Lots more culinary surprised await at Nobu Kuala Lumpur this festive season. Be sure to make your reservations ahead of time for your share of the gastronomic treats. A 5-course Christmas Omakase Lunch (RM250++ per person) will also be available on 24 & 25 December 2018.
