Having been in Singapore for the last month or so for the World Gourmet Summit, Chef Abhijit Saha decided to take a break and pay a short visit of 3 days to Kuala Lumpur (his first visit to the Malaysian capital). The idea was to discover the city briefly in terms of the F&B scene and the cuisine and also visit the Academy of Pastry Arts which is owned by Chef Nikilesh Sharma. The academy is known for its excellence in teaching pastry, baking, chocolate work and sugar sculpture work to regular students, amateurs and professionals.
During the last two days the chef visited the Street Food market, exciting restaurants and bars. He says, “It is a vibrant F&B market with a lot to choose from. Eating out is a well developed culture among locals and has got a dramatic boost with the influx of tourists over the years. Malaysian cuisine has 3 distinct parts – Malay, Malaysian Chinese & Malaysian Indian.The architecture is a mix of traditional and very modern.”
Its obvious Chef Saha is having a wonderful time discovering this culturally rich city. Looking forward to having you back home chef, with more culinary tricks up your sleeve!
