That Love Story… Valentine’s @ Nobu KL

Valentine’s day is probably one of the more controversial dates in a year, than people care to admit.

Do I buy her roses, or do I not? Should I take her out? Should I cook a meal… ?

Comments like “I do not celebrate Valentine’s” or , “God, I wish I knew where to take her for Valentine’s” are whispered on the subways, in the office, even overheard at lunch, as THE date approaches.

Do too much and you’re a victim of advertising. Do nothing, and be accused of being an indifferent cheap skate.

Really, you can’t win these days.

Anyway, here’s one to help put your mind at ease, by a bit at least. And this post if for those of you, who do celebrate Valentine’s Day and for the ONE who makes your Dopamine levels go all silly… 


Having covered Nobu KL for several years now,  I can safely say that I find Valentine’s dinner here, a nice balance of fun with the celebratory, with a price tag that won’t burn a hole in your wallet. If you’re already prepared to spend, that is. It’s one of the best value for monies location in town. Trust me.. I mean, some places in the close vicinity are just exorbitant. No names mentioned.


And talking about cloud 9… this might just be Cloud 56, as you are after all, dining on the 56th floor with the commanding Petronas Twin towers iconic structure for company.

From February 14th to the 18th, Executive Chef Philip Leong and his team have conjured up culinary romance with Nobu’s newest Valentine’s Day Omakase. Patrons will also have the option of selecting a more premium menu which incorporates the use of truffles, if they so choose.


The Valentine’s Omakase menu features Nobu’s quintessential Japanese-Peruvian style of cuisine taking couples on a 7-course journey. The premium version of the menu marries Nobu’s distinct flavour with the use of truffles in a variety of ways from freshly shaven to infused sauces.


For that perfect touch to a memorable season of love, the premium menu is paired with a glass of sparkling wine or guests can opt for a special Valentine’s Day cocktail, “Bitter My Lip” – a tangy concoction which features Dark Rum infused with coffee beans, orange peels, lemongrass and Maraschino cherries.


Somebody mentioned on my other Instagram feed that I looked like I was on holiday in Hawaii.. i wish.. haha.. 

The Valentine’s Day Omakase Menu comprises of such delightful courses of…


Salmon Confit Dry Miso

So pretty it’s guaranteed to make your loved one’s heart flutter !


Cyakin Sushi

I love unwrapping presents, and this dish was just screaming out to be unwrapped. Best part is that the wrapping paper is edible too;)


Terrific cuts of unagi, prawn, tuna and seafood await in this golden parcel of goodness!


Scallop with Garden Salad With Yuzu Dressing

If you’re wondering what that purple rose is, it’s actually scallops tinted with beetroot, to give that lovely color. This salad is just sublime.


Soft Shell Prawn Karaage With Yuzu Egg Sauce & Ikura

First time I’ve had soft shell prawn. Soft shell crabs, many times, but this was a first. It was utterly delicious!


Wood Oven Roasted Quail With Wasabi Truffle Sauce

Good things come in small packages and this quail was goooood. The truffle shavings just heightened the experience by that much more!

Watercress Soup with Lobster – refreshingly toothsome!


Raspberry Hazelnut Mousse With Almond Sponge & Sakura Ice Cream

Real smooth (just like you), and your loved one will remember every last bite of this!

The Valentine’s Day Omakase special is priced at RM498++ per person with the premium truffle option at RM598++ per person with a glass of sparkling wine. Advisable to book in advance 03-21645084 or Whatsapp 019-3895085
