Dewakan Becomes First 2 MICHELIN Star Restaurant In Malaysia
For the first time in history, a Malaysian restaurant has been recognised with two MICHELIN stars!
Dewakan, a fine dining restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, was given its second star during an award ceremony by the MICHELIN Guide today, 17 November
The win is two-fold for the Malaysian fine dining scene as the restaurant itself celebrates contemporary Malaysian cuisine
According to its MICHELIN profile, Dewakan is known for "crafting a heavenly dining experience that is Malaysian down to its very core", often featuring foods that are fermented or dry-aged in-house, alongside seasonal fruits and herbs.
Dewakan is derived from two words — 'dewa', the Malay word for god, and 'makan', which means 'to eat' — translating into 'food from God'.
Located on the 48th floor of Naza Tower, the restaurant only uses ingredients that are sustainably and locally sourced; and even the dinnerware is handmade by local artists.
In 2019, Dewakan also earned the accolade of being Malaysia's first restaurant on Asia's Best 50 Restaurants:
