It is almost time to unwind for the holidays and you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to tuck into some delicious treats this December. Here are 4 recommendations you definitely should check out before the year is over.
FRESH OFF THE GRILL
If you have a hankering for great food and a great view, then Horizon Grill on the 58th floor of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is a choice location. The kitchen team is led by Chef de Cuisine Daniel Wong, a young chef who’s made his own mark in the international culinary scene under the tutelage of the renowned chef Joël Robuchon. Having worked in the three-Michelin starred kitchens of L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon and 8½ Otto E Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong, Chef Daniel brings his talent and 13 years of experience to the carefully designed West-meets-East menu at Horizon Grill. Sit down to the degustation menu for six of Chef Daniel’s greatest hits, including Hamachi Crudo, Lamb Ragout Pappardelle, Goulburn Valley Beef and ending with the Horizon Royal designed by Banyan Tree pastry chef Fodil Baghal.
You can have your cake and eat it too without the guilt of over indulgence at Ladurée Malaysia with the introduction of a new super healthy menu. Options range from sweet bites to savoury plates and even down to their lattes, each dish carefully designed to include healthier, superfood ingredients. Breakfast dishes include the Red Berry Yoghurt, which incorporates fresh fruits and healthier coconut yoghurt for a lighter start to the day.
