Curiouser and curiouser: What happens when a restaurant brings together two Malaysian chefs who spent much of their professional lives abroad, one crafting American soul food with an Asian twist at bars in Las Vegas, the other whipping up a fine-dining storm of seafood aboard European cruise ships that sailed from Bergen to Reykjavik?
The result is a completely revamped menu at Tropicana Avenue’s rooftop restaurant Curious Kitchen, which welcomes two chefs returning to their hometowns – head chef Gary Tan, a PJ lad who sharpened his skills in Vegas for 15 years, and Klang-born sous chef Jordash Decruz, who cooked for travellers aboard Viking Ocean Cruises for nearly two years.
If you love playful starters (crispy chicken skin with bacon jam?) and princely mains (jambalaya-inspired fettuccine with sausages in Cajun-spiced sauce?), Curious Kitchen promises a wonder of a meal, with slices of Tex-Mex (tacos and habanero ribs), slivers of Tuscany (spaghetti and risotto) and splashes of cross-cultural tastiness (Hokkien mee with iberico pork).
