NO. 10 – The Grill 582 at Best Western Premier Dua Sentral

The year of 2012 was a very promising year for myself as it was the year of the discovery new eatery and also invasion on new food outlets especially i Kuala Lumpur. I guessed rating can be a difficult task but some how I managed to pack in my own Top 10 list. Stumbled into new place can enchanting act but having to walk into a new venue can also be rather tricky thing to embark on. As for my No. 10 it was such a great finding through a friend who took the energy to drag me to visit this eatery and having ended up being charmed till speechless. It is called the Grill 582 at Best Western Premier Dua Sentral and specially taken care by fabulous charming Chef Jaffery Othman. I was totally charmed by it’s wagyu, done in perfection while the ambient took my heart away. Definitely a must try !

In February I got a call from Diyana and she requested me to get over to her place urgently as she needed me to assist her on her coming project at SOFIRA. I meet Diyana and Sofia at the studio that same day. They wanted BIGBOYSOVEN to bake lots of macarons, yes loads of them. Yes it was definitely exciting and fun too as  request was  to commission 1.000 pieces of macarons for  SOFIRA new line collection fashion show. The request was simple and yet elegant, coral and pink macarons filled with loads of white chocolate ganache.

Strawberry Moussecake with Flaming Meringue

It had already been a week rest and I guess it is time to churn out a nice dessert and also to spoil myself by indulging them later. What will be the best dessert to make this time after such a long hari raya break? Maybe something simple and yet looks beautiful and stunning. Hmmm…thinking!

I always wanted to use my new culinary torch, the one I bought from a hardware store, the best thing to make is a creme brulee. Creme brulee… hmmmm… sounds interesting as I can burn those sugar topping but in fact I just had them a day before at Mandarin Hotel. I guess I will not have such similar dessert as it will be so bored and crazy. I have an idea…… the vision of the flaming alaska came into mind… oh yes I would love that, but I had ran out of ice cream but I have some strawberry moussecake in my fridge. Strawberry moussecake. I make some meringue (whisk egg white and sugar) and I piped them onto the moussecake. Once done the flaming started. So cool and so fun as you can burn the dessert….lol.
