It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!
Tis the season to indulge, so celebrate this beautiful Christmas at new heights in style. Nobu Kuala Lumpur presents a Christmas Omakase menu this festive season to ring in the cheer with gastronomical delights.
Culinary gourmands will feast on new style Japanese-Peruvian dishes crafted by Executive Chef Philip Leong and team with a 7-course Omakase menu that is available for lunch or dinner. There’s no better view of the city that at Nobu Kuala Lumpur where one catches full glorious view of The Twin Tower and all its glittering city lights.
Set the mood for the festive with a glass of Cava with your loved ones while you wait for a feast to come…
Zensai Moriawase is a kaleidoscope of flavors and textures. Showcasing signature bites under Chef Philip’s repertoire, start off with a shot of Oyster Shooter. Bold moreish flavor reigns in a one mouthful. The unctuous briny note of the fresh oysters coupled with the umami flavor of the sauce makes a great starter. Followed by a roll of glorious sweet Yellowtail Jalapeno sashimi enhanced by a steep heat of jalapeno in ponzu sauce.
Moving to a beautiful and artistic piece of Salmon Kelp Roll that sits in tasty soy dressing. Salmon sashimi wrapped with kelp and stuffed with Oba leave and carrots is a mouthful of delicious flavors. The best of the lot has to be the liver of the sea in Ankimo with Caviar. A luscious disc of monk fish liver is paired with a moreish miso sauce and topped with tiny black caviar pearls. Heavenly creamy and rich, the disc of liver is utterly superb in flavors. A simple but tasty Tuna Sashimi Salad completed the course nicely.
One would never dine at Nobu without savoring the freshest cut of the sea on rice. The Seasonal Assorted Sushi is the epitome of Japanese cuisine. The finest and freshest cut of Chu Toro, Kinmadai and Amaebi Sushi hits all the right notes and ended with salty umami globules of Salmon Roe with fresh wasabi on sushi rice.
The prettiest dish of the course would be the Madai Sashimi Dry Miso Salad. Slivers of beetroot cured Japanese sea bream is paired with tiny cubes of crisp apples, micro green salad, edible flowers and a yuzu olive oil dressing with a sprinkling of dry miso powder. Light and citrusy with a tasty umami note from the dry miso, the salad is a welcoming course of freshness after the sushi and sashimi.
Indulgence is the perfect excuse for the festive feast and the Konbu Dashi Poached Lobster with crispy watercress and watercress sauce fits the bill perfectly. The king of crustacean is gorgeously poached with much tenderness in a konbu dashi broth. The sweetness of the lobster goes so well with the crispy watercress, Ikura daikon, lobster cracker and watercress sauce.
The feast continues in full height of lavishness with the main course of Kobe with Tamari Pepper Sauce, served with soba-quinoa risotto and caramelized fig. The ultimate meat sensation is definitely the thick cut of perfectly grilled kobe beef with its glorious marbling of flavors. The kobe beef alone was divine. The piquant Tamari pepper sauce added a nice bonus of flavors while the unique soba-quinoa risotto gave the dish a different note of textures. Perhaps the caramelized fig was an afterthought but it definitely worked so well as a sweet palate cleanser to the rich beef.
Cold Inaniwa noodles ended the course with sheer simplicity and delight.
On the sweet note, there is the pretty Christmas Forest. Showcasing black goma & green tea olive oil sponge, tempura gen-mai cha ice cream & berries crumble, it was indeed a festive color of sweetness. The tempura brown rice tea ice cream is delicious with toasty notes and lightly crispy. The sponge is great for mopping up the ice cream while the tart plum wine jelly balanced up the cream of the dessert well.
