Dinner with a view for two awaits at Nobu Kuala Lumpur this festive season, with two special menus created by executive chef Philip Leong for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. A five-course menu entitled ‘A Wintry Affair For Two at Nobu Kuala Lumpur’ (priced from RM488 per couple), celebrating Christmas in chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s signature Japanese-Peruvian culinary style, will be available from now until 30 December.
The menu offers add-on options and dish upgrades at additional cost, allowing adventurous couples to switch from a steamed lemon sole with powdered miso to lobster sake soy truffle, or to swap their Angus beef tenderloin with Japanese Wagyu. Always with a knack for showmanship, Nobu Kuala Lumpur turns the humble mince pie into a far more memorable green tea version, served with rice ice cream after being flambéed at the table.
The Nobu Kuala Lumpur Sake & Wine Pairing For Two (priced between RM788 to RM988 per couple, depending on beverage preferences) will take centre stage for New Year’s Eve on 31 December, with a seven-course extravaganza. As guests work their way through a lavish selection of moriawase, such as an oyster with foie gras and caviar, along with creamy uni soba noodles and smoked Japanese Wagyu with jalapeño miso, they can sample alcohol pairings exclusive to Nobu.
Tasting tipples like Hokusetsu Sake’s creamy Ginjo Nigori (produced solely for Nobu’s restaurants worldwide) and their exquisite plum-infused umeshu isn’t a process that should be rushed, as it’s the only opportunity to do so in Malaysia. Both menus are, of course, made even more significant that they mark the end of six years at Menara 3 KLCC for Nobu Kuala Lumpur. Next year, they’re moving to Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, so those who need their regular Nobu fix are advised to book quickly.
