Guest Head Chef Jes Chew is now cooking at Elegantology Gallery & Restaurant. His specially created 3 course a la carte menu offers a series of colored dishes that could be paired with cocktails and in store fashion items. Priced at RM150++ per pax and available for a limited time only, the exquisite dishes are prepared by using premium ingredients with a local twist.
The last time I visited Publika, it was a weekday and the place was awfully quiet. You can tell that the economy has really taken a toll on both the F&B industry and consumers' spending. Among the dozens of restaurants and cafes we walked by, Ante Kitchen & Bar was the only one that seemed to be buzzing with life.
For an Izakaya, Tsubohachi is alright in my book. One thing I feel they did right is maintaining the food prices affordable enough for frequent visits. They recently introduced a brand new, limited time only menu called Crab of Tsubohachi which features imported Snow Crab prepared in various Japanese styles.
