Standing head and shoulders above its contemporaries is Starhill Gallery’s most notorious restaurant – Shook! Since its opening in 2005, Feast Village’s most ethnically diverse restaurant has continued to captivate guests with its World Class elegance and fine dining finesse.
Part of the restaurants award-winning allure is its innovative open-kitchen concept, a first of its kind in Malaysia, for which it is renowed. Culturally dynamic delicacies capture the very best of Malaysia’s culinary scene with its fusion of Chinese, Japanese, South-East Asian and contemporary Western influences.
Shook! is helmed by the acclaimed Executive Chef Richard Sawyer. Hailing from England, Chef Richard brings with him 26 years of culinary experiences. His distinguished career has taken him across Europe, the United States as well as Asia.
Shook!’s intimate ambience of sparkling wine glasses, cascading water features, unique Kasbah seating areas and low key lighting is akin to its motto of ‘dining without borders’ whereby guests are able to watch the chef as they perform in action.
Since its opening, Shook! is reputed for attracting VIP guests and celebrity faces, confirmed by its private function rooms which are furnished by Armani/Casa to greet guests in Rothschild wine collections from 1945 to 2000.
Shook! was recently awarded Gold in the Home Grown category by The Kuala Lumpur Mayor’s Tourism Awards 2014 in a ceremony which identifies and rewards the crème-de-la-crème if the business industry. Shook! was praised for its creative cooking and culinary excellence and for enhancing the reputation of Kuala Lumpur as a culinary destination of choice.
This November, Shook! is launching the A La Carte Menu which is only available for a week in conjunction with A Journey through Time IX, Asia’s premier watch and jewellery showcase featuring over 125 brands from around the world from 20th Nov till 27th Nov 2015. Those who appreciate the finer things in life must opt to check out the special A La Carte Menu.

The ingredients bring out the authenticity of the gigantic scallop.

Roasted Australian Lamb Loin, Muesli and Mint Crust (RM 168)
honey, rosemary, edamame puree, baked stuffed tomato, balsamic fig glaze
I like the wonderful flavours of this main. The incredibly light but immensely flavor roasted Lamb Loin is soft on the inside but crispy on the outside. The lamb loin proved to be enjoyable till the last bite.
Baked Fillet of Cod (RM 138)
Herb risotto, green asparagus, Australian mussles, saffron cream
The dish was meticulously prepared by Executive Chef Richard Sawyer. The baked cod served with herb risotto that has a buttery texture is the best choice for seafood lover.

Slow Braised Australian Short Rib (RM 198)

The red velvet is not only an eye candy but it taste fantastic too. The chef suggested us to mix around the different texture to get different sensation in each and every bite. A truly delectable delights to end the night.
With the tunes of stringed instrument and live band playing in the background, the little touches certainly add extra flavors to our dining experience at Shook!.
