2017 is coming to an end. Here are my picks for Top 3 Modern Casual Fine Dine in Kl or regard as my top 3 fine dining in KL or top 3 fine dining in PJ. There are no order for this as 3 different chef with 3 different dining experience and taste profile. Do note that for this dinner experience usually takes about 1.5 – 3 hours.
One of the most hype restaurant before it opens its door in KL with high expectations flying around from media that BABE is lead by a Michelin Star Chef Jeff Ramsey with a venue that overlook at our magnificent skyline both KL tower and Petronas Twin Tower.
It is one of a dining experience that is very different compare to the others as it focuses on Fun Dining. The food journey plays with your senses as you need to smell then taste. You will be surprise with different smell that triges your palate after that.
Where the 2 masters combine to serve one of the best street food dining experience in Tiger Streats event.

2. Dewakan by Chef Darren Teoh
Among the 3 chefs, this by far impress me the most. A curiosity in my mind, why there are not many chef that uses local ingredients in fine dine where overseas they do showcase most of their local ingredient.
Chef Darren Teoh did it with flying colours where he uses 70-80% of local ingredients in his food that blow my mind away with our local flavour profile in this casual fine dining context.

Since then inspired by the skills and culinary there, he came back to Malaysia to establish DC Restaurant in 2014. DC Restaurant serve French-meets-Southeast-Asia flavours.

No doubt that he have his skill set and constant rave of his flavour profile and unique presentation do lift up the expectation. A clever combination with flavours and presentation, hence the price tag for a meal here is not cheap. Easily ranging from RM 300 – RM 800 depending on seasons.
Worth to give it a try? Well, if you are an adventurous person that understand a bit of French taste profile and the dining experience would be added advantage.
