2. The stars of the show
Immerse your senses in the opulence of Nobu KL’s Festive Omakase menu, featuring star dishes that redefine indulgence. The Toro Shiso Chimichurri, for one, presents a culinary experience tailored for celebrations. The richness of premium Toro, with its delicately marbled texture, melts on the palate. What sets this dish apart is the vivacious interplay of fresh, aromatic shiso leaves and zesty chimichurri, elevating the Toro to celestial heights.
Moving to the Festive mains, the Shiso Panko Crusted Scallop emerges as a delightful ode to begin the festive celebrations. Plump scallops encased in a golden armour of Shiso-infused Panko, creating a symphony of crispiness that gracefully yields to a tender, oceanic embrace – a refreshing start to what lies ahead.
Following suit, the A5 Japanese Wagyu Spicy Sansho Pepper steps into the spotlight as the undisputed hero of festive revelry. The velvety A5 Japanese Wagyu, perfectly complemented by the bold and invigorating Spicy Sansho Pepper, transforms the dining experience into a spirited celebration. Gather your loved ones, for this showstopper isn’t merely enjoyed; it’s shared, becoming the heart of a festive feast and the twinkling star amidst the beautiful festive night skies of Nobu KL.
Conclude the Festive Omakase menu on a sweet note with the enchanting Yuzu Mochi Meringue – a cloud-like meringue delicately enveloping yuzu-infused mochi, offering a delightful harmony of citrusy brightness and balanced sweetness. Adding a touch of theatrics to the festivities, this dessert takes centre stage as it is artfully lit up tableside, providing a sensory spectacle that ensures the celebration concludes with a bang.
