Kampachi dining at EQ. — EQ Kuala Lumpur

Many upscale dining venues have reopened, with restaurants observing strict SOPs to keep their patrons safe.

Make your next dinner out a special one by checking out some of the best restaurants Kuala Lumpur has to offer.

Fine meals

For the first time ever, Malaysian diners will have the rare opportunity during the exclusive Akaushi Festival to sample some of the finest beef Japan has to offer.

EQ (formerly Equatorial Hotel) and Kampachi are bringing in an entire Tosa Akaushi cow, a brown-haired Japanese species that hails from the mountainous Kochi Prefecture on the island of Shikoku.

Only approximately 400 cattle are made available each year, making it extremely rare and very sought-after, and this unique offering is made even more special in that the incoming beef is Halal certified.

EQ and Kampachi have secured one cow for 2021 and it will be available exclusively at all their restaurants – including award-winning Sabayon, Blue (the rooftop bar at Sky51), Étoile Bistro, Nipah, and even banqueting and in-room dining. Kampachi takes part with its flagship restaurant in EQ and its stand-alone restaurants in Pavilion and Plaza33.

The Kochi Prefecture takes pride in their Akaushi cattle, known for producing meat that is moderately marbled, finely textured and incredibly tender. The evenly distributed fat gives a bold and intense taste and amazingly, a buttery sweetness.

The Akaushi gastronomic adventure features guest chefs Chef Demizu and Chef Iwao who bring with them culinary and butchery skills from two Michelin-starred restaurants. Both Japanese chefs will be available on rotation between the three Kampachi restaurants.

The Akaushi Festival is on from now to Oct 31, 2021 throughout all EQ and Kampachi restaurants. Advance reservations are required.
