Nobu, the world’s most recognized Japanese restaurant known for its innovative new style Japanese cuisine, brings us a Father’s Day special, Omakase Menu this time round.
As usual, an exciting backdrop for a great Father’s Day weekend would probably be exquisite food, paired with wines and an amazing view of the cityscape of Kuala Lumpur, under the shadow of the Petronas twin towers.
Let dad sit back and relax as the Chefs transport him and family to a world of new-style Japanese culinary delights with an exquisite multi-course dinner.
From 17th to 19th June, Nobu KL will be serving a specially-curated Omakase menu in conjunction with Father’s Day. Created by Chef Philip Leong and the Nobu KL team, the 7-course Omakase meal offers an array of fresh seafood such as oysters and kanpachi, as well as a hearty Grilled Tenderloin Beef as the main course, served with Goma Peanut Sauce and Nori Senbei.
Nobu KL’s Father’s Day Omakase Menu comprises of the following..
OYSTER HALF SHELL – with Caviar & Maui Onion Salsa
This was a good opening in the form of a 2-way oyster starter. Both were equally rich and compelling in flavours. The salsa one particularly imparted a gorgeous tart, oniony zing to each mouthful.
SUSHI SELECTION – fresh cuts of seasonal sashimi, bursting with each mouthful. Full points for presentation and flavour.
KANPACHI SASHIMI SALAD with Yuzu dressing. Fans of salads and especially beetroot, rejoice. A deep, earthy flavour engulfed the Yellowtail – you need to like beetroot to truly appreciate this. I loved every mouthful of it.
BRICK OVEN ROASTED CABBAGE WITH SHRIMP and Tosazu Truffle. Wow, the flavour of truffle laced cabbage was just spot on. The prawns almost seemed to dance on my tongue.. they were that fresh.
GRILLED TENDERLOIN BEEF Goma Peanut Sauce & Nori Senbei – A faultlessly succulent, medium rare steak. It’s heartiness was completed with a rich, creamy sesame sauce… and look out for that grilled nori seaweed – insanely addictive – somewhat like a super thin potato chip, and doubly tasty!
HOT SOMEN – this broth was a little bland, and not such an impressionable somen dish, but still, I did like the mushrooms.
TAPIOCA & TOFU PUDDING WITH GREEN TEA MOCHI – think Japanese version of Sago Pudding, and you won’t be far off the mark. Loved the texture of the cold tofu pudding and the sago pearls, drenched in the richness of the sauce.
The Father’s Day Omakase is available exclusively for dinner from 17th to 19th June (Friday – Sunday) and is priced at RM 398++ per person. Of course since spots are limited, the earlier you book, the better. Drinks are not included but we highly recommend their cocktails! Otherwise stick with the wines or sake as they have a pretty exhaustive selection.
