M1Star @ Damansara Uptown

M1Star has a bit of an intriguing background, tracing its lineage to both Malacca & Manhattan. It's run by a family member of Malaccan-raised chef Kathy Wong, the original founder of Laut, a Malaysian restaurant in NYC that earned a Michelin star several years ago. Kathy reputedly supplied not only the inspiration & skills training for M1Star but advised on its recipes: familiar favourites from the Western & Japanese oeuvre, with some extra touches like flavoursome house-made sauces - butter garlic cream & lemon sauce - to complement its chicken & fish chop platters, complete with butter rice sprinkled with crispy-fried garlic, plus potato wedges & a fruit coleslaw for a balanced & filling meal (RM15.90 each, including a beverage).

The menu is extensive - from the Japanese cookbook, you'll find preparations that range from teriyaki salmon (RM20.90 for a set with a choice of beverage, such as lemon tea, passion fruit juice, honey lemon or green tea) to seafood donburi (RM20.90 for this comfort-food set). But M1Star's influences are nonetheless far-reaching enough to include its version of Chicken Kiev (RM16.90 for a set; boneless chicken breast, coated with breadcrumbs & rolled around a stuffing of butter & finely chopped coriander) & fuss-free side dishes like salads with ginger, goma or onion dressings (RM6.90). Thanks to M1Star for having us.

  1. Lovely little place. Like how everything served looks very neat, not overly showy like some. There is beauty in simplicity.
