SOULed OUT Ampang

I was in for a great treat at a new place along Jalan Ampang here in the city located nearby KLCC named SOULed OUT Ampang. I just love the interior and the deco of this newly born restaurant, to be precised its their 2nd outlet, the famous first in Sri Hartamas. The invitation came very handy as I get the first peek of the place, loved it. Very chick and yet kept to full of simplicity. Lots of wood came into play, from table to wall paneling to the ceiling.

IKETERU KL Hilton MIGF 2010

IKETERU at KL HILTON

IKETERU is part of the 30 finest restaurants around Kuala Lumpur participating in this year Malaysia International Gourmet Festival 2010. Definitely this sophisticated and modern Japanese setting of IKETERU instantly caught my attention and comfort was felt right away. Equip with finest chefs, moden teppanyaki station and modern sushi bar, IKETERU was truly irresistable especially on my latest dining experience. A spacious dining area with private tatami rooms can be truly comfort to enjoy a Japanese cuisine, just like what I did.

A Huge Range of Sake

I am a new sake follower and having a few bottles at home is a must. As having to have a glimpse of sake available was mind blowing, it was beautiful to see. Just like a sea of sake. Marvellous especially for a drinker like myself. Another sight caught me with excitement, having to see huge jars of plum sake being brewed and being showcased in the glass cabinets caught me totally speechless. I was informed there are not readily yet for drinking as they are still very young.

Another reason of coming to IKETERU is to lay back and enjoy the dishes crafted by the well know Chef Ricky Kamiishi. His beautiful creations are most sort after by many Japanese cuisine fans in town, he is known for his bold approaches in his creation and style. He just love playing around with flavours and freshness. I am one of his huge dedicated fan.

I am also excited that during this festival, Hilton KL will also be flying a 2 Michelin Star Chef, Chef Christopher Coutanceau from La Rochelle Restaurant in France from 14th to 16th October 2010. Being born a Coutanceau means being born to cook (his father, The Grand Chef Richard Coutanceau), Christopher absorbed the culinary rigour of his father and learning from gastronomical greats like Gauzeres, Bardet, Guerard, Oudill and Ferran Aida. Throughout his three days visit in Kuala Lumpur, he will be mesmerizing us with his delectable original and modern presentation with his signature festival menu featuribng Brittany Lobster Stew with baby Vegetables 7 mushroom Ravioli, Grilled Foie Gras with Candide Mandarin & Mandarin Sorbet, Squab Pigeon with Cabbage leaves & Foie Gras, Seasonal Vegetable Casserole with truffle juice.

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.
