THE Oriental Group is presenting a Miyazaki Wagyu Omakase Dinner with rising Dutch star Joeri Timmermans (pic) over four evenings in Kuala Lumpur next month.
Through its collaboration with Norihito Nakanishi’s Nishinoharu Farm in Japan, The Oriental Group has secured a rare supply of one of the world’s finest Wagyu beef to be showcased at its Chinese restaurants.
The Miyazaki prefecture is known for its top-quality pure water, clean air, warm weather with cool evenings and a pristine environment where pedigree cattle are fed with organic feed.
Nakanishi Wagyu is bred with ground water from Kirishima Mountain Range.
The Nakanishi family farm has a history of over three generations of raising Tajima cattle (commonly known as Kobe beef) in limited populations and non-commercial environments to ensure the highest and most consistent quality of Wagyu in the world.
The dinner, served omakase- style, will feature Timmermans who will work alongside Oriental Group executive chefs James Ho and Justin Hor.
Timmermanns’ resume includes Michelin-star restaurants in the Netherlands — Parkheuvel, Beluga, and De Leuf.
He has also headed the kitchens at Ce La Vi and Black Wattle in Singapore and Momofuku Seiobo in Australia.
Timmermanns served as sous chef at Automata, a restaurant that has been twice named one of Australia’s Hottest Restaurants in The Weekend Australian, was awarded two hats in The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and earned two stars in the Australian Gourmet Travellers Restaurant Guide 2017 and 2018.
The collaboration offers a unique opportunity to experience one of the finest Wagyu beef in Chinese cuisine in Kuala Lumpur.
The six-course omakase menu is priced at RM388++ (one main course) and RM688++ (two main courses) per person.
Both options feature prime cuts of Nakanishi Miyazaki Beef prepared in diverse cooking methods.
The dinner is available on Nov 4 at Noble House (03-2145 8822), Nov 5 at Ruyi (03-2083 0288), Nov 6 at Noble Mansion (03-7932 3288) and Nov 7 at Yu (03-2202 2602).
