KUALA LUMPUR : British restaurateur and chef Gordon Ramsay’s first Malaysian outpost is set to hit our shores this year.
His Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill will open at Sunway Resort in June.
Ramsay is a household name here from his various television shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Gordon Kitchen Nightmares. As a judge for cooking reality shows MasterChef US and Australia, his sharp tongue and blunt criticism has many shaking in their boots.
He also runs a restaurant empire with various dining concepts in the United Kingdom, the United States, Dubai and Singapore.
In London, his fine dining Restaurant Gordon Ramsay has been awarded three Michelin stars while Petrus by Gordon Ramsay holds one Michelin star.
Recent expansion efforts have seen him opening up his Street Burger and Street Pizza concepts all over London. His US-concept premium burger brand, Gordon Ramsay Burger, also debuted at Harrods.
The opening of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill at Sunway Resort is part of the hotel’s massive rejuvenation exercise that is scheduled to be completed by April this year.
Guests can look forward to rooms and suites using smartphone key entry, motion sensors, “live” online fitness coaching and chromotherapy showers. There will also be new family facilities and exclusive lounges.
Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill will be at the lobby level of the resort and decked out with contemporary interiors. The highlights include floor-to-ceiling windows offering a spectacular view of Sunway Lagoon. There will also be private dining rooms.
An all-day menu will feature breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There will also be a cocktail hour at the bar and private dining.
Expect prime cuts of meat, including dry aged meat done in-house. Highlights of the menu, as confirmed by Sunway Resort, will be Ramsay’s famed beef Wellington and sticky toffee pudding. Hotel guests will also get to dine there for breakfast.
If it is similar to the Mayfair restaurant, the menu will pair the steaks with Ramsay’s triple cooked chips and his iconic short rib burger served with cheese. In London, they also offer a Sunday roast served with traditional Yorkshire puddings and roasted potatoes.
