All-new à la carte menu at Kintsugi Kuala Lumpur

From this week, Kintsugi Kuala Lumpur (KL) is expanding its modernist Japanese dining experience from a progressive Kaiseki and Sushi Omakase structure to a complete format that offers Malaysian gourmands a more casual option through an all-new à la carte menu, mirroring its Michelin Selected sister restaurant in Bangkok and helmed by Tokyo Michelin-starred Chef Jeff Okada Ramsey.

With six signature sets, a variety of cold and hot appetisers, small plates from the grill, noodles and rice dishes, and three chef’s special dishes, the new à la carte menu allows guests to sample Chef Ramsey’s tantalising flavours without committing to the hours-long seasonal Kaiseki and Omakase menus.

The 18-person dining room is now reserved for walk-in customers who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the restaurant’s exquisite à la carte dishes in the warm and friendly company of their fellow diners. Kintsugi Kuala Lumpur is open for lunch and dinner from Tuesday through Sunday.

New hip restaurant opening — Electric Eel Bali

Overlooking the waves of Echo Beach in Canggu, Bali lies a brand spanking new restaurant and lounge — Electric Eel. Replete with an irresistibly homely retro ambiance, finding the right way to make a historical reference was crucial for the team behind Electric Eel, the same duo (Tai ‘Buddha’ Graham and Adam McAsey) behind Bali hot spots such as The Lawn, Single Fins, and Skool Kitchen. The design is subtle, featuring custom marble tables, amber corduroy couches, wood panelling, travertine stone touches, a black and white stone chequered floor, Jakey Pedro artwork, and an abundance of plants (including a hanging plant wall).

The concept is also seen on the menu, which features a selection of grandma cakes and other freshly baked goods. Two must-tries while here are The Egg & Ham, which features fried eggs, a glazed ham leg, hash browns, heirloom tomatoes and sourdough; and the Ricotta pancakes with honeycomb butter and maple syrup and a Bacon and Egg butty unlike any other. Long story short, expect to elevate your morning recovery meal when here.

While coastal seating upstairs offers the ideal view for watching sunsets over the Indian Ocean with a cocktail in hand, the chef’s counter invites diners day and night to get a front-row seat to the culinary action. As the sun sets, supper is served to the sound of the beach below and fine bottles of well-known wines are uncorked.
