Ready or not, it’s back to life, back to reality for all of us after an incredible week of Raya festivities. Still, the fun doesn’t stop there. In fact, the good food doesn’t stop with that last plate of ketupat and rendang you had just yesterday. This week however, get your taste buds introduced to a perhaps, unfamiliar cuisine: Macanese. Babe by Jeff Ramsey and Martell are also having fun in the kitchen with an experimental dinner, and the drinks continue with a round of G&T’s this World Cucumber Day. Most exciting of all events this fine June week? The Phantom of the Opera is premiering in Kuala Lumpur as it takes the stage at Istana Budaya. All the details:
The House of Martell and Babe by Jeff Ramsey have a few tricks up their sleeves with The Wonderarium, a serious of socials that make up a fun night of gastronomical experimentation. Guests will enjoy Martell VSOP Aged in Red Barrels cocktails and complementary or contrasting Japanese-styled tapas. These ‘courses’ are timed to accommodate the evening’s pièce de résistance staged at the bespoke Martell Trun, where Chef Ramsey leads the group of guests through a series of interactive curiosities.
If you like Cantonese and Portuguese cuisines, you’ll almost certainly enjoy the cuisine of Macao. Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) and Fat Tea Macanese Restaurant are proud to present a dinner menu with a side of live entertainment on the 12th, 19th and 28th of June. Available from Tuesdays to Fridays, there are also weekly lucky draws with the grand prize being of course, a trip to Macao.
What would our gin’s be without it! Celebrating all that is this humble green fruit on one special day, Hendrick’s Gin is not kidding when they say they’re accepting cucumbers as payment for a classic G&T. Whether Japanese or organic, no cucumbers are discriminated at participating bars including Coley Cocktail Bar, Skullduggery, Omakase + Appreciate, Suzie Wong, Pahit and Bar Trigona. Cucumber-for-G&T’s are limited to one redemption per person with 60 redemptions per bar.
With over 70 major theatre awards to boast, Andrew Llyod Webber’s most iconic musical is about to premiere in Kuala Lumpur. The musical is based on the novel by French writer Gaston Leroux about a disfigured musical genius who lives in the sewers beneath the Paris Opera House, who falls in love with a talented young soprano. A little theatre trivia: The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running show in Broadway history with more than 13,000 performances to date.
