Exclusive Residency of Chef Alex Dilling: Sabayon EQ Kuala Lumpur

Sabayon x Alex Dilling

Stepping into Sabayon during the first two weeks of June will transport you to a realm where the classical intricacies of French cuisine blend seamlessly with the vibrant beats of Kuala Lumpur's heart. It is here that Alex Dilling, a steward of gastronomic prowess, presents an exclusive showcase that not only marks his first-ever visit to Malaysia but also a historic moment for EQ – a beacon of culinary innovation and luxurious hospitality.

Dilling, whose illustness was carved in the kitchens of Alain Ducasse and honed as the Chef Patron at London's Alex Dilling at Hotel Café Royal, brings with him not just two Michelin stars but a narrative of passion, precision, and a palate refined by years of global culinary explorations.

From the Big Apple's Caviar Russe to the prestigious Greenhouse in London, his journey has been nothing short of remarkable, each step further cementing his place among the élite in the world's culinary scene.

Alex Dilling Dinner Menu

Embarking on this culinary jaunt, guests at Sabayon will be treated to an exclusive menu that whispers tales of Dilling's adventures and his love affair with caviar, wild mushrooms, and the unassuming elegance of English peas. This curated experience, limited to 50 lucky patrons per night, turns dining into an act of discovery – an exploration of textures, flavours, and the joy of seasonal freshness that dances on the tongue.

Imagine starting with aged Kaluga caviar, nuanced and bold, paired expertly with delicate rillettes. Move on to a wild mushroom macaroni gratin that marries earthiness with the sharpness of 36-month aged parmesan and the luxury of black truffles. Then, there's the olive oil poached black cod, a symphony... pardon, a harmonious ensemble of taste with smoked eel consommé that speaks the language of the seas.

His rendition of hunter chicken promises a comforting yet exquisite surprise, while the sourdough ice cream with Pedro Ximénez sabayon provides a finale that lingers, much like the final note of a mesmerising concerto.

The fervour surrounding this event is more than just about tasting menus and wine pairings; it's about Malaysia's burgeoning position on the global culinary map, a testament to its rich cultural hospitality and the boundless possibilities that await in the realm of fine dining.
