De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan: BOSS MY Unity Menu brings Malaysian flavours to the fore

For Malaysians who love the rich flavours and comforting textures that mark our country's cuisine,  De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan is teaming up with BOSS for an exclusive MY Unity Menu that brings together local favourites raised to elevated heights from 15 August to 16 September.

The menu comprises two components - a dine-in or delivery feast of classic Malay, Chinese and Indian specialities, as well as a tiffin set for takeaway or delivery.

The initiative includes collaborations with local artists as well as support for Malaysia's leading food bank to curb food wastage - 10% of the proceeds from this menu will be donated to The Lost Food Project, co-funded between BOSS and De.Wan 1958.

Order now at or contact 010-2070-383 to enjoy priority bookings. Dine-in reservations must be made at least three days in advance.

We had a preview of the dishes for the MY Unity Set Menu, curated by Datuk Dr. Chef Wan himself - an extravaganza of temptations that beautifully illustrate the sweeping range of Malaysian recipes.

With every order of this menu, customers receive a limited-edition MY Unity tiffin illustrated by Malaysian talent Tiffany Choong, celebrating the country's diverse flora and fauna, including the Malayan tiger to raise awareness for its protection.

This menu, for dine-in and delivery, is sufficient for three to four persons, priced at RM398++. 

We started with the cucur udang, a street staple that De.Wan 1958 makes exceptionally delicious with large tiger prawns deep-fried with sweet corn, shallots, chives and bean sprouts. Dunk in a thickly textured, satay-like sauce of peanuts and red chillies for a crunchy-creamy delight.

The Szechuan salad whets the appetite well - lotus roots zestily tossed with spring onions and coriander leaves in a lively dressing of black peppercorns, soy sauce, honey, vinegar sesame oil and sesame seeds. Guaranteed to perk the palate with its fresh, revitalising dynamics.

The main courses are all marvellous, so it's difficult to choose a favourite. If you like fish, the sea bass with superior sauce is a delicately delicious representative of Chinese steamed cooking; for fans of robust recipes, the daging rusa rendang is a punchy pleasure that would be fit for the most lavish Malay kenduri; if the spice road is up your alley, the udang kari masala should captivate your senses with an aromatic Indian medley of flavours. 

The sea bass, venison and prawns are all fleshy and succulent, prepared to pure perfection, complemented by fibre in the form of stir-fried broccoli and mushrooms, as well as rice in a choice of nasi bunga telang, nasi telur, or nasi putih. A trio of desserts also showcase the best of culinary traditions - som-som, gulab jamun, and red bean pancakes.

Alternatively, customers can purchase a three-course meal for one person at RM129++, for takeaway or delivery, comprising the Szechuan salad, daging rusa rendang, rice and desserts. This also includes the limited-edition tiffin.

Customers will also receive a RM100 BOSS Voucher with every order of the BOSS x De.Wan Exclusive menu.

If you love the tiffin carrier and you’d like to gift it to a friend or family member, you can purchase a small carrier on its own for only RM80+ or a regular-sized one for RM90+ - perfect as a nostalgic keepsake to store, transport and serve home-cooked meals.

Many thanks to De.Wan 1958 for this preview of the BOSS My Unity Menu.
