The combination of Japanese cuisine with French wine is the perfect marriage Nobu Kuala Lumpur has whip up for March’s special offering.

Available from now till April, the Sake & Wine Pairing Omakase is a 7-course menu that features the finest wines and sake from Nobu’s collection that come with delectable Japanese-Peruvian dishes. Curated by Executive Chef Philip Leong and his team, take a look at the menu below:


1. Sashimi ‘Moriawase’

  • We were recommended to start with Toro Daikon (left), before moving to the middle with Kampachi Jalapeño, and the rich Scallop Foie Gras (right).
  • Paired with Mumm Grand Cordon Brut Champagne.

2. Sushi Selection

  • 3-piece premium sushi that consists of Chu-toro (medium fatty tuna belly), Tai (Japanese sea bream), and Uni (sea urchin).
  • Paired with Hokusetsu Nobu Daiginjo TK40 ‘The Premium Sake.

3. Aburi Salmon with Kohlrabi Salad

  • Paired with Rene Mure Riesling Signature 2013 from Alsace.

4. Alaskan King Crab with Ginger Salsa

  • Paired with Joseph Drouhin St. Veran 2017 from Burgundy.
