De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan
De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan seeks to redefine Malaysian cuisine and food culture. One of the most important goals for Chef Wan is to raise awareness of Malaysian food at the international level. It is a cuisine that is full of flavors and colors influenced by the diverse culture that the country is blessed with yet not many people know about what an authentic Malaysian cuisine is like. So he knew that one day he would return home to make this dream into a reality. It would be a place where he can freely share his culinary passion with people who love food as much as he does; it would also be a place where people can create lasting memories and impressions. This is the concept that De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan is built upon. The restaurant is Muslim-owned and uses halal certified ingredients.
Spreading the spirit of Ramadan, De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan will be delighting diners with an enticing array of buka puasa delicacies from 27 April to 22 May 2020.
Malaysia’s Food Ambassador, Celebrity Chef Wan, presents ‘Best of Asia Cuisine’, spanning recipes from Terengganu to Johor in peninsular Malaysia, from the korma of Kashmir to the bubur manado of Sulawesi.
The flavours of Malaysia’s diverse states will shine throughout this buffet – expect to be intrigued by Kerabu Nangka Nenas Sarawak, Rojak Betik Terengganu, Rendang Daging Selangor, Bubur Lambuk Pahang, Udang Galah Rendang Perak, Nasi Telor Terengganu, Laksa Johor, and much more to represent our national culinary treasures.
With kampung and kerabu corners, sambal and salad stalls, barbecue carving stations, a warong satay and sections for santapan panas and aneka gulai, the buffet will sizzle with lip-smacking excitement. Save space for desserts, with everything from Pengat Pisang to Pulut Hitam, Kuih Tart Nenas to Kuih Tiram to sweeten this season.

Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur
This Holy Month, come together in love and gratitude at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Diners are invited to take a trip down memory lane with a feast curated by Malaysia’s favourite culinary celebrity, Chef Dato’ Fazley Yaakob. From April 24 to May 23, Sajian Merentasi Zaman (food across generations) will feature beloved recipes from Chef Dato’ Fazley’s childhood days, offering a precious opportunity for the whole family to reconnect.
“In a world where everyone is busy and caught up in their own lives, we understand the value of spending time with those who matter most – that is real luxury,” notes Vinod Narayan, Hotel Manager. “Our team is creating meaningful moments through thoughtful menus and caring service, bringing people together naturally.”
Drawing on a treasure trove of family recipes, Chef Dato’ Fazley recreates Malaysian dishes that have been lost in the mists of time and are rarely found on restaurant menus. Sample delights such as Nasi Tumpang Ayam Bakar Pasu (rice layered with different dishes, served on banana leaves), Puyuh Salai & Kulit Rambai (smoked pigeon with Rambai) and Urap Daun Kaduk & Telur Masin (kaduk leaves & salted egg). Each dish is prepared using healthy cooking techniques, so diners can forget about counting calories.
End the meal on a sweet note with an array of desserts, including crowd-pleasers like Serabai with Gula Melaka (local pancakes with palm sugar syrup), Penjan Ubi Kayu & Pisang (tapioca and banana), and Lempeng Kelapa (coconut crepes).
Along with herbs and spices, Chef Dato’ Fazley seasons his dishes with a liberal sprinkling of gratitude and joyfulness. “For me, cooking is an act of love that’s passed down from generation to generation. My grandmother was the heart of our family, her food brought the whole family together,” he recalls fondly. “Nothing unites us Malaysians more than our shared culinary heritage – I’m so thankful that my job allows me to evoke that wonderful sense of belonging and togetherness.”
Sajian Merentasi Zaman will be hosted in the warm and welcoming ambience of Curate. Local childhood snacks take guests back in time to simpler, carefree days, while live cooking stations add a welcome buzz. Watch Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur’s chefs led by Executive Chef Junious Dickerson in action, and savour smoked delicacies such as crab, prawns and split gill mushrooms. Each table will also receive a bottle of homemade sambal, compliments of Chef Dato’ Fazley.
Sajian Merentasi Zaman is available from 24 April to 23 May 2020 at Curate, Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur, priced at:
· April 24 to 30, 2020: MYR 189 per adult, MYR 94.50 per child (ages 6-12)
