The iconic Nobu KL brings something truly unique to the table this July with a seasonal encounter called the Black Gold Osusume menu. Four culinary masters – Nobu Executive Corporate Chefs Hervé Courtot, Toshyiyuki Shiramizu and Nobu KL’s very own Head Chef Phillip Leong and Sushi Chef Masa Ouchi have worked together to present a special three-day Caviar Osusume menu that is not to be missed.
The Black Osusume menu showcases the black gold pleasure from tropical brand T’lur Caviar which has a longstanding relationship with Nobu KL since 2019. This rare and unique gastronomical experience is unlike any other with a la carte selections of hot and cold dishes using premium ingredients that feature Malaysian-grown Oscieta caviar and sturgeon meat.
Hot dishes such as Umami Sturgeon Crispy Vegetable Aji Amarillo and the Yuzu Miso Marinated Sturgeon are prime examples of Nobu’s Japanese-Peruvian take on local sturgeon meat. Left over 2 nights to marinate in yuzu miso sauce, the sturgeon meat is cooked to perfection and packed with umami flavours.
Typically, sturgeon fish grow in cool environments and against odds, T’lur Caviar’s facility and ponds containing fresh mountain water were successful in cultivating sturgeon fish under Malaysia’s weather conditions. Unfertilised female fish eggs are harvested and quickly packed into tins to preserve its farm to table freshness, without added preservatives, chemicals or colouring.
“Whilst visiting the region, we thought it would be magnificent to curate a Nobu-signature style menu inspired by locally grown premium ingredients. The tropical caviar pairs perfectly with our Japanese-Peruvian concept and I hope guests will enjoy it as much as we had fun when crafting the menu,” said Corporate Executive Chef Hervé Courtot.
