The iconic Chalet returns for limited time to EQ
One of EQ’s best loved dining establishments will make a return to the property for a limited time. Chalet, premiere Continental fine dining restaurant of the 1980s, will make a special pop-up appearance from July 24 to August 12, bringing with it the nostalgia of its heydays.
In its original incarnation, Chalet was a highly decorated, much awarded restaurant housed in the original Hotel Equatorial. From 1973 until the original property was closed for redevelopment, Chalet was one of the most sought after venues for celebrations and memorable events. Its white linen-topped tables, gleaming silverware, and impeccable service marked an era of opulence and culinary excellence for Malaysia’s royals, socialites and glitterati.
Chalet’s pop-up restaurant will allow a revisitation of well-loved traditions, and the spectacle of crepes flambeed live in the restaurant. Chalet fans will be delighted to see many of its signature main course dishes presented once again, including Émincé de Veau à la Zurichoise, roasted mustard-crusted rack of lamb, Swiss Cheese Fondue, Raclette Valaisanne and Lobster Thermidor. Also on the menu will be the signature Swiss Classic, Canard à la Presse. Also, as in the days of old, succulent roast prime rib will be rolled in on a trolley and served right at the table. Dessert will once again regain the grandeur of the past when Crêpes Suzette, Soufflé and Sabayon are offered during this limited time period.
To further enhance the nostalgia, one of the original Chalet chefs, Krishnan Ramachandran will be on hand to serve up morsels from the past, delivering flavours well remembered, and very much loved. The Chalet experience will be modernised by the inclusion of the Sabayon team, who will help to deliver this redux, along with a curated wine list of exclusive, impressive vintages and calibre.
