ABOU T SITKA STU­DIO

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feast -

Sitka | Stu­dio at Plaza Batai is hard to miss, with stylish ex­te­ri­ors that give way to in­te­ri­ors that are even moreso. Both Sitka, be­low, and the Stu­dio above fea­ture con­tem­po­rary fur­nish­ings com­bined with clean aes­thet­ics to evoke a sense that one has just stepped into an episode of Chef’s Ta­ble. Clean, mod­ern lines, cour­tesy of wood beams and soft mood light­ing dom­i­nate the spa­ces amongst black walls, white tiles, and pen­dant lamps; in Stu­dio, de­sign el­e­ments were even im­ported in from as far as Scan­di­navia! It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence in vi­su­als as much as it is about flavours, and what a joy it is to en­counter.

“Both Sitka and Stu­dio are very dif­fer­ent in terms of what we serve on the plate, but the ethos is still the same,” Chef Chris­tian tells us. “Both restau­rants use sus­tain­able in­gre­di­ents, and we try to use as much Malaysian pro­duce as we can. Sitka of­fers Mod­ern Asian at af­ford­able ev­ery­day prices, while the food at Stu­dio is more fo­cused with a lot of thought, man hours, and cook­ing pro­cesses that go into every el­e­ment of every dish.”

On Sitka’s cui­sine, Chris­tian says, “I think since we have grown into Mod­ern Asian cui­sine, it’s eas­ier for cus­tomers to see what we are about. The food isn’t pre­ten­tious and can be en­joyed by ev­ery­one.” And while it may yet take a while for Malaysians to fully un­der­stand and en­joy the fresh avant-garde style of cui­sine of the Stu­dio, Chris­tian shares that they have plans for more pro­jects in com­ing days.

His favourite dish on Sitka’s menu is cur­rently a Chi­ne­ses­tyle lamb Bings. “Stu­dio’s crowd pleaser would be the al­mond milk tofu, served with warm flower crab and ma­cadamia,” Chris­tian tells us. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s a beau­ti­ful dish.”

SITKA | STU­DIO ARE LO­CATED AT 8- 5 JALAN BATAI, DA­MANSARA HEIGHTS, 50490, KUALA LUMPUR. FOR MORE IN­FOR­MA­TION, VISIT WWW. SITKARESTAURANT. COM
