Nobu KL is putting together a special menu that highlights the best creations from top Nobu chefs from around the world in conjunction with the release of Chef Nobu’s latest cookbook, ‘World of Nobu’. The curated dining experience also features signature dishes of Nobu KL’s very own Chef Philip Leong (Cold Inaniwa Chuka with Caviar and Watercress Soup) and Chef Chico Dator (Sushi Cup). We have had our fair share and would highly recommend Chef Leong’s dish (we love the crunchy whitebait crisp contrasting the QQ texture of the noodles) and the Sakura-Saku dessert with dark cherry sorbet by Chef Kei Hasegawa from Matsuhisa Beverly Hills — with a side of sake of course.
