Sky hype Japanese @ Nobu
Nothing says delicious Japanese food with a modern take like Nobu. From New York till – yes! – Kuala Lumpur, the world famous restaurant serves its take on the Japanese cuisine, and oh boy, how delectable it is.
As if this wasn’t enough, this delightfulness comes with amazing views of Kuala Lumpur iconic twin towers; from a very minimalist interior filled with plain light wood and orchids here in there, one can appreciate close up views of the Petronas towers from the 56th floor of Menara Tiga, aka Menara 3. Also home to the stylish Marini’s on 57 – one of our favorite cocktail bar and italian restaurant in town – the opening of Nobu on the below floor makes it the trendiest menara in town.
Nobu offers three different atmospheres that allow patrons to seat in front of the masters of the kitchen to appreciate their expertise, in a larger room for big groups, or further near the cocktail bar for a lounge feeling while contemplating the twin towers.
Attentive waiters will guide your choice through the vast menu, split between the cold starters and hot dishes, omakase and sushi / sashimi. All dishes are ideal to share which means more opportunities for your palate to get tantalised. Starting with the famous yellow tail sashimi with jalapeno that comes artfully presented with its dashes of color is a sure way to put you on the fast-yummy track; the jalapeno gives a slight twist to the yellow tail that is refreshing and energizing. The octopus carpaccio is light and flavourful, and so is the sea urchin bouchees that provide an explosion of subtle flavours. As per the hot dishes, the octopus pasta is a must try, the incongruous texture mixing perfectly with the luscious aromas to create a surprising alliance that works heavenly. Order some warm sake to spice things up, and you are in for a lip smacking treat.
Put on the high heels, channel the glamour and head to Nobu where the hipsters meets with the fine(st) Japanese food in town.
