It seems like there’s a new omakase restaurant opening every month (not that we’re complaining), the latest of which is Sushi Mew at The Westin Kuala Lumpur. Operated by the same team behind EMP KL that also recently opened at the hotel, Sushi Mew offers traditional edomae cuisine with a hint of modern flair. The KL location is the third outlet to open after Hong Kong and Singapore, featuring classic wooden interiors and counter seats for an intimate dining experience.
