We were there at about 7.30pm and got to chit chat and chill at the lounge area with one of my good friends and a glass of orange juice before we were brought to the dining room for our 90 minutes culinary adventure that combined fun 3D table projection with cuisines from France, Arabia, India, Himalaya and China, all in one meal….

This unique dining experience tells the story of Le Petit Chef as he follows the route of famed Italian explorer Marco Polo, complimented by a six-course menu, taking guests along a unique culinary journey across the regions visited by the legendary traveler.

To bring the Marco Polo theme to life, the Elements Le Petit KL restaurant is decorated with props from The Silk Road and there is a host to guide us as we ‘traveled’ from one country to another, sharing exciting facts about each country and cuisine that is being featured…

In our case we were certainly lucky that our host was none other than the CEO of Elements, Mr Balraj Singh Pannu himself, who really got into character with costume changes as well and taught us how to speak French, Arabic, Indian and Chinese – oh well, even if only to say “Have a good meal”… Hehehe…

This feast of the senses combines food with cinema, theater and technology, making it a must try experience for everyone, as Mr Balraj mentioned and I for one is certainly loving the immersive experience like no other…

From India we journeyed to the Himalayas where we had some refreshing NO​2​ raspberry sorbet, kaffir lime soda, mint jelly presented with a slight taste of Himalayas cold weather, created by pouring scented water over dry ice of course..  But the effect and scent was breathtakingly lovely…

From the Himalayas we headed to China (main course 2) where we were served steamed corn fed chicken with monkey ear mushroom, candied ginger, mushroom foam, baby leek, foie gras, flat rice noodle… Then there was some rice dumpling with xo prawn reduction and seaweed?! And of course, the greens… Some healthy asparagus stir fried in soy sauce and served with garlic chips..
