It had been sometime now that I had not been updating my blog but I am sure you would have caught me on my facebook (Sidney Kan). For a simple reason I had left my professorship and had been on light travelling. The destinations that had my foot marks were Langkawi, Bangkok and Jakarta. It was not soul-searching but rather a free and easy travelling. Seeing and eating were my objectives.

Back to this post, yet another favourite food tasting of mine I had recemtly. This time I caught up with a fantastic Master Dim Sum Chef Yoon Kong Thye who is based at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant. He is a truly an artisan on what he creates best, a fabulous outstanding Dim Sum. Here, I got to confess that I had a fabulous time when I get to meet up with him at his open designed kitchen. :)

Year end 2010 is coming to a close very soon, every second counts and can be very subtle too. I love 2010, it was full of great memories and joy. Working with great people, people who mentor us indirectly and most important the ones who gave us & BBO the opportunity. You know who I am talking about. You all had been fabulous! Yet 2011 will be the tremendious year in coming for us to look forward with our face look front and march! :) Am I too direct, I hope not . . . . I am just overwhelming with the current and in coming happenings! :)

While having to be invited to taste a list of new dishes from a new menu can be truly exciting. It was an exciting gastromical adventure. Forking into every dishes can be such a surprise with flavours and tastes. One thing, every dishes was excitingly delicious. Well crafted by it’s Executive Sous Chef Paul Lewis. I was told that Chef Paul himself planned this menu with pure dedication with one mission, to leave his guests and KL diners hungry for more.

That night the guests, the nine of us started of with a light Marche’s Pesto Pizza. It was truly fragrant and tasty. Thin crust and a homemade pizza base. Make sure to have the pizza when it is stilll warm and crispy! I like it, it’s simple!

Ruffino Aziano

Having to start with a red Ruffina Aziano wine was truly a good pairing on that night. The Aziano was nice and it was a medium-bodied red wine filled with aromas of black cherries, chocolate and nut, not forgetting a hint of oak.

Brodetto Marche Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur

The wine paired well with Brodetto it was truly fragrant and smooth. Brodetto a tomato based soup infused with seafood, garlic, tomato, saffron and white wine vinegar. The taste of the Brodetto was bold and heavier that night compared to the one I had, lighter and refreshing. It was still adoreable lovely.

DYNASTY Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel MIGF 2010

Dynasty
DYNASTY Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

Dynasty Restaurant is one of the well refined Chinese restaurant that I frequent when I am think of having Cantonese cuisine and dim sum. Yet another thing about Dynasty that captured my attention is their interior and also their beautiful imported Japanese diningware. So elegant, so beautiful. Just love how food is being served with. This time I was back at Dynasty to enjoy the creation of Master Chef Tan Kim Weng who is well known for his seafood creations. What I love most is Master Chef Tan’s combination of Oriental and Western in crafting his Chinese dishes. It is always exquisite and fabulous. Having to bite into any of his creation will definitely get you hook for more and it did happen to me again this time. My journey of indulging his seven course meal was truly excellent. Got to mention, the wine was fantastic, definitely to my taste.

SAGANO Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel MIGF

sagano

SAGANO was my first Japanese restaurant to visit on my MIGF list, a very simple elegant with a home feel flush decorated restaurant, very comfortable indeed. This restaurant is located at the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel and with Chef Yastoshi Ito’s Japanese authentic, innovative and meticulously prepared culinary creations to indulge the diners. That night we were there to taste his creation and to be more authentic in culture we decidedd not to pair the festival signature creations with the picked wines but we have them with the in-house selected sake instead. I had been noted for my sharp taste in Japanese food amount my Japanese friend in Kyoto and I just can’t wait to indulge into Chef Yasutoshi Ito’s creations.
