Picture being surrounded by centuries-old stalagmites and stalactites while sipping on a rare Cabernet Sauvignon
Where do you start when describing a place like this? The setting itself definitely deserves special mention. Imagine dining in a 260-million-year-old limestone cave, surrounded by naturally sculpted limestone stalactites resembling acrobatic dancers suspended from the ceiling. However, even the spectacular surroundings couldn’t hold a candle to the culinary spectacle of Chef’s Boon offerings. We were offered a choice of two degustation menus, both of which deftly shone the spotlight on little-known premium local ingredients. Each dish in the menu was carefully chosen, with the full experience coming across as an artful curation of a food journey. Our experience was further enhanced by the service staff’s impressive knowledge of wine pairing, as well as interesting trivia on the origins of certain rare and little-known local ingredients. Highlights of the meal included the chicken consommé (Ayam Kampung) from the Tanah menu and the beautifully plated scallop starter (Onsen) from the Inception menu.
IN THE KNOW
Taukeh, a dessert on the Tanah menu, is proudly crafted from homegrown ingredients, including Ipoh soya bean milk and beansprouts, and Sitiawan bee pollen.
Do not skip the bread! The freshly baked sourdough accompanied by Aged 12 years Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil might seem basic compared to everything else on the menu but tastes simply divine.
