About the Invited Chef - Chef Raphaël Kinimo


It’s a collaboration with invited French Chef – Chef Rapheal Kinimo from Lyon, France as a special guest with a 2 day special menu, Chef Gary Chang from Champignons offered us a French Gastronomic Journey we would not forget for a while. Chef Raphaël Kinimo was honored as a Maitres Cuisiniers De France, one of the highest honors a French Chef can achieve. This proves him to be one of the top French chefs, and we got to savour his delicious offerings! During our gastronomic journey, we had a mix of dishes both prepared by Chef Raphaël Kinimo as well as Chef Gary Chang from Champignons. Check out what we had that evening. 

Amuse Bouche - Foei Gras Lollipop with Port Wine

We kicked off dinner with the unique Foei Gras Lollipop and Seaweed Cracker with Citrus Crab Meat. The Foei Gras Lollipop was an acquired taste, even for one who likes the non-lollipop version. I found the Seaweed Cracker with Citrus Crab Meat super refreshing, such a wonderful start to the meal.

Champignons at Oasis Damansara is operated by Chef Gary Chang, and rightfully so, he is just so skilful in French cuisine preparation. We had the seared Halibut, and it was mouthwatering good! 

Smoked Wagyu Beef Rib Eye

My favourite that night, the Smoked Wagyu Beef Rib Eye was prepared by Chef Raphaël, and my did it make me wish I had more servings of this good stuff! 

Smoked indeed

This is good! Wagyu Beef Rib Eye

Even the presentation was cool, where the smoke literally left the encapsulated Wagyu Beef Rib Eye the moment the glass was lifted. Too tender, so soft and oh so very flavourful, this has to be one of the nicest Wagyu Beef Rib Eye I’ve had in a while. Thumbs up!

Caramelized Banana with Cepe Mushroom, Milk Chocolate and Cepe Mushroom Ice-cream

We ended our Four-Hand Dinner, with the unique desserts, Caramelized Banana with Cepe Mushroom, Milk Chocolate and Cepe Mushroom Ice-cream. Mushroom ice cream? Yes, it’s of the savoury type, but once you pop some in your mouth, all your worries will melt away together with the ice cream. Lovely!

  1. Where's the champignon? Can't get fresh ones here, only the not-so-nice ones from China.
