7 Things you can do this weekend: 14 – 15 January 2017

1. Have a taste of 1-Michelin star Chef Mario Cittadini of Italy’s Il Postale’s epicurean flair at Mandarin Grill @ Mandarin Oriental KL, lunch and dinner, 11 – 14 Jan

It’s not every day that a Michelin star chef is in town and ready to whip up his idea of a unique Italian epicurean journey. Chef Mario Cittadini’s specialty mirrors his cooking values, and that is ingredients and diners always come first, then only the chef and culinary techniques. He is able to turn ordinary produce into plates of decadent cuisine, and expect no complicated seasonings – every flavour is naturally produced from the fresh, high quality ingredients that are used. 

Guests have a choice of the 3-, 4- and 5-course menu for lunch or 5- and 7-course menu for dinner. A la carte dishes are also available. The menus are priced between a range of RM148 nett per person to RM388 nett per person.
