Eat out but stay safe at these dining events in KL happening in September 2020.
Just yesterday, Malaysia chalked up 100 new positive COVID-19 cases. While they’re mostly outside of KL, we still need to remain vigilant especially when conducting activities outside of our homes. Dine out, but dine safely.
Preaching aside, we have one last public holiday this September 16th before needing to wait a whole month for another at the end of October. It’s time to put those leaves to good use and plan your dates out, and there’s no better way than to book a slot at one of these dining events happening in KL.

Inspired by 100 years of fine French gastronomy served at the Palace of Versailles, The Brasserie at St. Regis KL is presenting The Feast of Versailles. The four-hands experience will be conducted by Chef de Cuisine Clement Torrente and Executive Pastry Chef Gael Moutet and features ingredients grown in the palace’s Gardens, the Orangerie, and the nearby Potager du Roi. These are delicacies that were first introduced to France and French cuisine, making this tasting menu an excellent way to travel not just to France, but back in time to when French cuisine first started.
The Feast of Versailles menu will only be served once a month, with this month’s being September 25th, 2020. The menu also comes with an option to pair each course with wines or cocktails inspired by the royals who resided at the palace.
Once again, PRIME at Le Meridien KL has obtained a one-month right to debut the award-winning Devesa Argentinian Beef (Azul Natural Beef S.A.). Happening only in September, this promotion marks the very first time that the halal-certified beef from Argentina will be made available in the Malaysian market. Previously, beef distribution from Argentina was halted in 2010 due to stricter halal regulations. What makes the Devesa Argentinian Beef so special is thanks to its flavour, texture, and colour. Argentinian beef is considered one of the best in the world, and this particular variant has a rigorous selection of the finest breed of cattle from the Argentinian Pampas Region.
Over at PRIME, you can enjoy the Devesa Chilled Argentinian 120 Days Grain Fed Beef in a Tenderloin, Ribeye, Sirloin, Bavette, or Matambre cut steaks.
After travelling around the world, Le Petit Chef finally returns to KL — specifically in Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. This immersive dining experience with 3D visuals will bring you on an educational tour around the world, exploring the history behind each region’s cuisine, hosted by the world’s smallest chef. Of course, part of the experience is trying out the different region’s food too, which you will. This 90-minute dinner comprises six courses prepared by Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s culinary team, led by Executive Sous Chef Matteo Fracalossi.
Love mooncakes and afternoon tea sets? Then you’re going to love this hybrid by Hilton KL. The 2020 Mid-Autumn High-Tea at The Lounge features some of the hotel’s signature mooncakes of the year alongside some savoury options of traditional Chinese snacks. Think afternoon tea set, but interpreted the Chinese way. The afternoon tea for two consists of bite-sized Chinese delights by Chef Lam of Chynna restaurant as well as traditional and snow skin mooncakes.
In case you missed out last month, Mandarin Oriental KL’s Chitose Strawberry Afternoon Tea will still be going on throughout September. Find it at Lounge on the Park, featuring Chitose variants of strawberries specially cultivated in Cameron Highlands. Grown by Chitose Agri Laboratory, this subsidiary of a reputable biotechnology company in Japan produces not just premium Japanese strawberries but also vegetables.
True to its name, Chitose strawberries are featured nearly in all aspects of this afternoon tea menu. From sweet items including strawberry tarts to strawberry cheesecake, strawberry macaron, red velvet strawberry mousse and more, the tea set’s savoury items also feature strawberries in its ingredients, such as the strawberry bruschetta and grilled tuna with balsamic mayonnaise & strawberry caviar.
The Chitose Strawberry Afternoon Tea also comes with a free flow of hot beverages for two hours.
Nobu KL’s Omakase For Two promotion will still be happening throughout September 2020. Guests who opt for the set will enjoy a five-course meal featuring only the most premium ingredients.
To start off your five-course meal, you’ll be presented with Moriawase — a platter of assorted sashimi including oyster with caviar, scallop with foie gras, and cuts of chutoro with wasabi salsa. Next, you’ll have the Chef Selection Assorted Sushi, followed by the main course of Steamed Snapper with Black Bean Sauce. The pièce de résistance of the omakase menu will be the Grilled Prime Aged Ribeye, aged for 150 days and paired with Goma (white sesame seeds) Truffle Sauce for an enhanced, delectable flavour. The final course of the Omakase For Two meal is the Nobu Style Cheese Cake with Wild Berries Compote, a satisfying dessert to end the meal.
