I am a big fan of Asian Food Channel. Their Asian culinary show were just too good to be missed. Early last week I was lucky enough to get invited for the premier screening of Daniel Boulud One Night In Singapore at Neo Kuala Lumpur. Neo is just located next to Tamarind Hill.
Who is Daniel Boulud?
Daniel Boulud is Chef-Owner of ten award-winning restaurants and the Feast & Fetes catering company. In addition, he has created Café Boulud Palm Beach and Daniel Boulud Brasserie at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort. In May 2008, the chef extended his culinary reach internationally, opening Maison Boulud in the Legation Quarter in Beijing, China. Daniel Boulud and his restaurant management company, The Dinex Group, have also recently formed a partnership in Vancouver where they manage the renowned Relais & Chateaux restaurant, Lumiere. Adjacent to Lumiere they have created a new DB Bistro Moderne, a sister restaurant to the one in Manhattans Midtown.
Boulud’s culinary accolades include James Beard Foundation awards for Outstanding Restaurateur, Best Chef of New York City and Outstanding Chef of the Year. Restaurant DANIEL has been named one of the ten best restaurants in the world by the international Herald Tribune, received Gourmet Magazines Top Table award and a coveted four star rating from The New York Times, as well as Wine Spectators Grand Award. The Chef has authored six books and has created three seasons his After Hours with Daniel television series.
The environment is just breath taking and a nice place to hang out for a drink after work.
The whole place were designed and built by Federico Asaro who is the owner of this place and Tamarind Hill. It is designed in such a way where it combines nature environtment into modern design to bring out harmony feel when you walk in. You can sit at the bar and look at the wall with water flowing while sipping a glass of cocktail.
The bar with a nature feel ……..

For this event, Alice George Communication did a great job by inviting the whole food blogger/writer community from around Malaysia to attend for this premier screening. From Asian Food Channel (AFC) the man and lady who are behind the scene Hian Goh and Maria Brown (Both carries the title Co-founder and MD) were there hosting the event. I get the chance of having a short talk with Hian Goh who is a nice guy and loves food just like us foodies.
I am not going to talk about what is shown in the screening and you guys should check it out yourself! This show is a must to watch! We don’t have much chance to see such a reputable chef in action.
