Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - EATING -

Un­like most restau­rants in KL, Sitka man­ages to ex­e­cute the de­ceiv­ingly min­i­mal­ist con­cept of mod­ern Euro­pean food. I love that I can eat at a Euro­pean res­tau­rant in KL and not have to choose be­tween seared foie gras or filet mignon. This is, of course, thanks in large to Chris­tian Re­comio – of Scot­land’s Moon­fish Café – im­ported by owner Jenifer Kuah to show ‘em how it’s done. His in­gre­di­ents are af­fec­tion­ately han­dled, his ideas are as ex­cit­ing as they are vast (white cho­co­late with wood sor­rel!), and his plat­ing is beau­ti­ful in its stark­ness. It helps too that Chris­tian and Jenifer ac­tively for­age for lo­cal pro­duce – a prac­tice that’s long over­due among KL’s top restau­rants.
