WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - International -

For a one-of-a-kind win­ing and din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence within a lime­stone cave, the in­ti­mate set­ting of this restau­rant cer­tainly has no peers.

The menu is lim­ited to sev­eral de­gus­ta­tion menus, with the Chair­man’s menu highly rec­om­mended. It starts off with quite the flair with smoked scal­lop cov­ered in a glass jar of smoke to en­sure the smoky flavours are ab­sorbed into the food. Fol­low­ing that is the foie gras which boasts of creamy, de­li­cious tex­ture, with nat­u­ral sweet­ness com­ing in the form of home­made apri­cot jam ac­com­pa­ni­ment. The lob­ster bisque sees pis­ta­chio spheres adding a sur­pris­ingly nice nutty flavour to the soup.

For the mains, both the cod fish and Wagyu are per­fectly cooked dishes. Though the risotto ac­com­pa­ny­ing the cod fell a lit­tle short of ex­pec­ta­tions, the Wagyu side dishes of truf­fled mash and mush­room ragout hit the spot.

The pre­sen­ta­tion of the dessert dish, Man­jari dark sphere, is a fun one. Hot caramel is poured over the dark choco­late sphere which even­tu­ally causes in­ten­tional col­lapse to re­veal the tasty and orig­i­nal pis­ta­chio ice cream and berry crum­bles hid­den within.
