Nobu Kuala Lumpur’s Valentine’s Day Menu: An Exquisite Experience


Nobu Kuala Lumpur’s Omakase Love Affair Valentine’s Day menu is a romantic six-course dinner that takes guests on an exquisite journey of complementary yet contrasting tastes and textures.

Each dish has been carefully prepared by Chef Philip Leong and his team, incorporating fresh local ingredients with premium offerings such as Wagyu Sirloin. The team strives to innovate every year with its Valentine’s Day offerings, and this year was no exception.

Chef Philip Leong said Prestige Malaysia, “The inspiration behind the Omakase Love Affair menu is a balance between Yin and Yang, so the flavors sometimes contrast and balance each other. Some dishes have a balanced texture, for example, soft tofu accompanies firmer textures like tuna. Other dishes get a kick with wasabi oil, paired with light cod. It symbolizes the differences between men and women. We source local ingredients such as sea grapes (commonly known as latok in Sabah and Sarawak).

We recently sampled a few dishes from the Omakase Love Affair menu at Nobu Kuala Lumpur, and found the complexity of flavors in each dish to be an exciting and satisfying experience for the taste buds. The punchy flavors complemented the milder tastes perfectly without any ingredient being too overwhelming for the palate.

Clearly, a lot of thought and detail has gone into creating a memorable dining experience to share with your loved one on this special day as you together navigate the exquisite flavors and unique textures of each dish. Each dish was beautifully presented with extra touches that made it a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.

Chef Philip said: “Each course builds on each other to provide a complete experience, while you can also enjoy each course on your own. We start with lighter dishes, then heavier dishes, and end with a refreshing dessert. »

Here’s what you can expect from Nobu’s Omakase Love Affair Valentine’s Day menu:

the six-course menu starts with a delicate and delicately seized Tuna tataki with tofu sauce aperitif that melts in the mouth, offering an explosion of flavors that perfectly whets the appetite. A few slices of chilli are placed on the dish, providing a spicy touch to the appetizer that we savored.

The next dish is a platter of Signature Chef’s selection of sushi cotake me costsh cuts of Kampachi, Ebi, Salmon and Madai, specially selected by Chef Sushi Chef Masa.


The hot dishes kick off is the Steamed coral grouper with wasabi corn salsa and umi budo, also known as sea grape that pops in your mouth with every bite to make it an exquisite dish. The light and delicate fish was perfectly paired with the wasabi based corn salsa.



Then there was an appetizing portion of Nobu’s signature Wagyu Sirloin with smoked black bean miso, radish pickles and mashed carrots, as well as Miso Foie Gras Mushroom Soup.

Smoked Black Bean Miso was inspired by tempeh, another nod to enjoying our local flavors and incorporating them into more premium ingredients that are hard to find in Malaysia like Wagyu. The nutty taste of the dough and the sweetness of the mash elevated the Wagyu, cooked to perfection, and filled us up.

If you don’t eat beef, the Chef will be happy to substitute the Wagyu sirloin course with another protein depending on the availability of the day’s ingredients.

Light and refreshing without being too sweet, the YRaspberry Uzu Pie served with jasmine tea jelly and beetroot sorbet was a delight after the rich flavors of the previous dish.
