This weekend in Kuala Lumpur sees: a unique collaboration between two major chefs, a sustainability pop-up, a Retox Sunday brunch, and more

 

1. Two Friends—One Cuisine dinner at The Ritz-Carlton KL, 7pm – 11pm, 20 July 2019

This Sunday, why not head over to The Library in The Ritz-Carlton to feast on the culinary masterpieces of guest chef Alexander Tyndall of Wheeler's in London and chef Alex Wai? The four-course dinner begins with a prelude of amuse bouche from the sea (Oysters Rockefeller au Gratin and Seared Scallop with skirlie potato cake and vanilla purée) before moving on to the Lobster Macaroni (an oceanic bisque of lobster and macaroni topped with black truffle). That isn't all, however—the dinner continues with the Roasted Rack of Lamb that comes with cockles, baby spinach, and a side of gratin dauphinois. There's always room for dessert and therefore, indulge in Chef Alex’s signature dessert, Wheeler’s Poached Pear with vanilla panna cotta and passion fruit sauce. The menu is available from 16 July and is priced at RM350 nett per person or RM450 nett with wine pairing.

Star-studded, locally sourced ingredients, paired with creative cocktail experience? The glamorous Sunday brunch at Flock is not to be missed.

5. Try the limited edition The Singleton of Glen Ord 14 Years Old (if you haven't already)

The 14 Years Old, triple matured in five wooden casks, is rich, deep, and complex. With only 516 bottles available in Malaysia, this is the first time a single malt Scotch whisky has been matured through a maturation process that's one-of-a-kind—in which different woods have been used. Expect smooth, sweet and spicy taste notes of baked apple, orange zest, raisins, smooth barley sugar, and honey. What are you waiting for? The time is now.
