T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Japanese -


Food may be the last thing on your mind when you book a win­dow seat 56 sto­ries high in Petronas Tower 3, but rest as­sured that this Malaysian out­post of Chef Nobuyuki Mat­suhisa’s fa­mous Nobu restau­rant will not dis­ap­point.


Ja­panese tra­di­tion gets a sexy Peru­vian up­date at Nobu—think ce­viches with yuzu, and jalepeno chill­ies to wake up your taste­buds—and the re­sults are sim­ply de­li­cious.

Don’t leave with­out sam­pling the Nobu clas­sics. The best­known one that has since popped up on ev­ery other menu is prob­a­bly the rich, umami-laden black cod with miso. An­other sound bet is the “squid pasta” in light gar­lic sauce. When it comes to sushi and sashimi, Ja­panese ex­cel­lence and at­ten­tion to de­tail pre­vail. Sea urchin, or uni, is the ul­ti­mate yard­stick, and in this case, Nobu passes the test with fly­ing colours with very fresh uni served very cold.
