Norwegian Seafood Journey @ Mandarin Oriental KL

From 12 to 18 October 2015, diners can indulge in a dazzling array of fresh Norwegian seafood by guest chef Markus Dybwad at Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur. Seafood from the coastal waters of Norway is renowned for its quality, natural taste and delicate flavours. Seafood lovers, this is one not to be missed!

Caviar + seafood on ice

Chef Markus Dybwad comes from an impressive culinary background, having worked in Michelin-starred restaurants such as Restaurant Bagatelle in Norway, Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck in UK as well as Iggy's and Equinox in Singapore.

One of the highlights of this seafood feast is the seafood on ice from Norway, such as mussels, king crab, snow crabs, oysters and Greenland prawns. We particularly enjoyed the latter, which were super sweet and fresh. Not to be missed is the array of sushi, sashimi and smoked fish selection such as saba mackarel, hamachi, salmon, smoked salmon and salmon gravlax. The luxurious caviar station is another favorite of ours; we topped blinis with trout roe, cappelin roe, red lumpfish and black lumpfish caviar.

Diners can also sample Chef Markus' appetizers and soups such as curry herring, skagen, blue crab with pomelo, Norwegian-style fish soup, lobster bisque, clam chowder and bouillabaise.

Pay a visit to the Grill Station for the cajun marinated king prawns, steamed mussels, grilled king crab or miso black halibut. Other notable hot dishes which we sampled (and thoroughly enjoyed) were the Atlantic cod with potato puree and soy, battered monkfish tacos and steamed brill with fresh chili Hunan style.
