Twelve celebrated chefs in Malaysia will be showcasing their culinary wizardry this November in Tatler Dining's pop-up food and drink festival called Off Menu. Like its name suggests, this unique dining experience will feature a one-of-a-kind crossover menu with dishes crafted specifically for the event. You won't be able to taste them anywhere else but here, not even at the respective chefs' establishments. Already a great success in Hong Kong and Taiwan, Off Menu will make its highly anticipated debut in Malaysia at our venue partner Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur on November 13 and 14, 2021.
Meet the 12 chefs set to wow you with their talents in the kitchen.
1. David Dahlhaus of Ambara, One&Only Desaru Coast
Having cooked alongside some of the world's most notable chefs, including René Redzepi at Noma, David Dahlhaus is no stranger to the kitchens of Michelin-starred restaurants and ultra-luxe hotels, which brings us to his present position. Ever since becoming the executive chef at One&Only Desaru Coast, Dahlhaus has been pushing the envelope at farm-to-table Mediterranean restaurant Ambara. The chef, who is fluent in English and German, says that the most exciting part of being in Malaysia is exploring its wealth of ingredients.
