Kyujin & Eat and Cook fuse East & West Malaysian flavours for a truly local omakase experience

Every foodie dreams of experiencing an omakase meal at least once in their lifetime. Omakase can be defined as a meal of dishes selected by the chef. In other words, you, as the customer, don’t have the power to choose what you eat; you put your full trust into the chef’s expertise and judgement.

Good news for residents of Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, Sarawak, as Eat and Cook and Kyujin will be collaborating to bring you a dining experience like no other.

On 2 separate weekends, each restaurant will be hosting their very own omakase sessions. Kyujin, located in Kuching, will be the first to do so. The Six Hand Dinner will occur on 16 and 17 Jun 2023

The founders of Eat and Cook, Chef Yong and Chef Lee, will be joining forces with Kyujin’s Executive Chef, Chef Alexandros. The menu will feature seasonal ingredients from local markets to showcase the bold and unique flavours of East and West Malaysia.

Eat and Cook is a fine dining restaurant that has made it to the Asia’s 100 Best Restaurants 2023 list and is one of 2023’s Michelin Selected Restaurants. They describe themselves as an omakase restaurant for local tastebuds, as they deliver contemporary eats while still infusing Malaysian flavours and culture.

Kyujin was established in 2021 after the chaos of the pandemic. The concept of this restaurant stems from the founder’s own curiosity: what would happen if the world froze, and everyone had to find a way to be self-sustainable? Thus, Kyujin focuses on supporting indigenous communities by using locally sourced produce and paying homage to Sarwak’s rich heritage.
