This post is based on Malaysiaku Menu (RM322+/pax). Available on 31th August & 16th September.

An interesting 6-Course menu featuring ingredients, flavours and legacy from 14 States of Malaysia. Each course was inspired by a story behind, like a Folklore & Fairytale.


Food:

SALAD & KERABU (Clockwise)


Jicama Salad - Crunchy Sengkuang in Rojak Sauce.


Smoked Duck Rolls - Smokey & light mayonnaise taste.


“Ikan Bilis & Kacang Hancur” Grissini - Crispy & Peppery.


Stuffed Bean Curd - Pan-fried Tofu with chilli sauce. Quite bland, and I hate Tofu.


Lobster Curry - Sweet & Juicy.


Anchovies Salad - Tasted like what it’s named. Good.


Signature Otak2 - Tasted like fishcake, jelly texture, mild Otak2 taste.




APPETISER


Cured & Pickled Chilean Seabass was very moist and well-marinated with herb and spices. Tasted great with the sour, spicy and refreshing Papaya Salad.




SOUP


This was my favourite course. Clear Flower Crab Soup was packed with freshness from the Crab, richness from Tumeric and Chilli.


Oscietra Caviar & Crab Meat was flavourful, tasted similar to Tomyam. Perfect combo with the soup!



MAINS


Roasted Beef was sweet and tender. Didn’t even need the Spicy Coconut Gravy to go with it. Chicken Biryani & Ghee Rice was wrapped in Puff Pastry (more like roti cannai texture). Biryani was flavourful but tasted even better with that spicy and fragrant Sambal Hijau!




DESSERT


Chocolate Rock had looks and texture that was exactly like it’s name - inspired by the story. Chocolate was decent, but not great. The Mochi’s weren’t really my thing.




PETITE FOUR


Inspired by the song Rasa Sayang, featuring Banana & Jackfruit as the main ingredients. Liked 2/4 of it.




Complimentary bread tasted like Potato Bun, barely any salted egg yolk taste from the spread. But still good!




Complimentary drink from the Manager. Thank you! 🙏🏻



Service:

The Chefs explained the ingredients and stories behind each course. Tremendous amount of effort!

Wish they would extend the Menu for longer period.
