WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Outstation Best Restaurants -

Classy and con­tem­po­rary cui­sine comes to­gether in this charm­ing colo­nial-style din­ing es­tab­lish­ment, named af­ter the year the East­ern & Ori­en­tal Ho­tel — where it is housed — was es­tab­lished.

The pre­mium grade tuna loin comes highly rec­om­mended. It is beau­ti­fully crafted and topped with a gen­er­ous sprin­kling of chives. The tuna is well sea­soned with soy sauce and an emul­sion of white truf­fle oil, which gives ev­ery bite an ex­plo­sion of flavours.

Choice of en­trees in­clude the braised Wagyu beef cheek and Grade 7 Wagyeu fil­let. The dish is del­i­cately plated with as­para­gus, caramelised onion, onion cream and droplets of dark soy sauce. The Grade 7 Wagyu fil­let is charm­ingly pre­sented, medium rare, with its meat beau­ti­fully mar­bled. Comté cheese, nashi pear and fon­dant pota­toes per­fectly com­ple­ment the melt-in-the-mouth Wagyu fil­lets.

To end the meal on a sweet note, the crepe Suzettes are the dessert of choice. A server flames the crepes at the ta­ble and the zesty flavours of the dessert, thanks to or­ange juice and or­ange peels, are el­e­vated with a splash of Grand Marnier. When com­ple­mented with vanilla ice-cream, it is the per­fect fin­ish to any dinner.
