Since opening its doors to gourmands, connoisseurs and food lovers in February 2022, Chef James Won has been recreating and rewriting distinctly flavourful and unique styled curated menus and beverage dinner experiences with flair, passion and fanfare at his Japanese French Restaurant, Shin’Labo. Newly minted and quickly gaining a celebrated reputation by fans and the media as the ‘Best Japanese Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur’ for elevated Yoshoku, Shin’Labo brings together flavours of the earth and sea.
This month, the restaurant launches an experiential Lunch Set Menu called Kikuyu which is a curtain raiser to championing a captivating introduction to the restaurant’s elevated Yoshoku cuisine storytelling. Elevated Yoshoku is a western influenced Japanese cuisine refined exquisitely through modern French technique, and Shin’Labo chefs seek to showcase this exquisite culinary menu so that guests can experience elevated Yoshoku at their restaurant.
“The attractive pricing is our attempt to introduce elevated Yoshoku cuisine to more Malaysians, so they can experience new and innovative cuisine which centre-stages Malaysian ingredients. This also demonstrates that Malaysian ingredients are equally of high quality and standards as their imported counterparts. With our Kikuyu Menu, we have summarised our lunch experience to create a build-up allowing guests to have a sneak preview to what we offer as a dinner experience, yet without compromising our eloquence, storytelling and savior faire.” elaborates Chef James Won.
