For the brave of heart with a taste palate to match, spend your weekend on the 14th and 15th of June expanding your gastronomical palate with The Wonderarium. One of the four planned cocktail socials hosted in collaboration with House of Martell and Babe by Jeff Ramsey, these two powerhouses in their own right bring to you an experience that no other Michelin establishment might be able to match.
The first of four cocktail sessions that will serve guests a different aspect of The Wonderarium each time, the session on the 14th and 15th of this month will focus on the theme of Umami & Smoke, featuring three different cocktails, using Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels, as well as complementary and contradictory Tapas to go alongside the drinks.
Starting off the happy hour with Rakkasei Highball which includes the star of the show, Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels, peanut orgeat, sour plum shochu and brown rice vinegar, with a side of sashimi spring rolls, Dashi infused Hiyashi Tomato and Unagi terrine, the next few cocktails to follow are the Smokey Daisey with Martell VSOP mixed with mezcal Marca Negra, Roselle, gula Melaka and cranberry before finally ending on Otonano Haru Cha which includes Monkey 47 gin, hojicha, rosemary honey, lavender tea syrup and Martell VSOP. It wouldn’t do to share the entire Tapas menu that goes along with the rest of the concocted cocktails, as the whole fun of the experience comes from the unknown.
We urge you to stay till the last platter of Tapas has made its rounds as that is when the pièce de résistance of the evening begins. At the bespoke Martell Trunk in Babe, Chef Jeff Ramsey will tour groups of people through a series of interactive sensorial gastronomy experiments and curiosities that will leave you feeling satisfied yet wanting more, we guarantee it.
The entire experience is priced at MYR 280++ per person and reservations are currently open should you want to book ahead. To make a reservation or for more information, you can contact Babe at 2095 8599 or through their website at www.babe.com.my.
