Saturday Night Vibes’ Cirque du Culinaire at Shook! Starhill Gallery

Delicious food, great cocktails and relaxing live music amidst the swanky ambiance basically sums up our perfect Saturday night out in the vibrant heart of Kuala Lumpur. So we are at Shook!, one of the pioneer restaurants in Feast Village Starhill Gallery at J.W. Marriott Kuala Lumpur, to experience the whole new Saturday Night Vibes’ Cirque du Culinaire affair.

Sounds cool? Specially hosted every Saturday now until 30 December 2017, “Saturday Night Vibes” is a brand new dining concept and live entertainment in a stylish space. Apart from food, it is the cocktails, champagne, live performances and entertainment that keep us on cloud nine throughout the evening.

The night begins with a hearty feast on the international buffet which features a medley of exquisite Asian and European cuisine, accompanied with a serve-to-table selections of wine and cocktails.

COCKTAILS
Left: House Signature Aperol Spritz
Right: SNV Cosmopolitan

If you prefer going something light-hearted at the start of the meal, the Signature Cocktail, a sweet and mild Aperol Spritz will tease the palate with fresh European flavours from the combination of prosecco, Aperol and soda.

Left: Spicy Mango Margarita
Right: 17 Gin and Tonic

Since it is a Saturday, there is no reason not to try all the unique concoctions on the add-on beverage package. My favourite is the Spicy Mango Margarita that gives a fruity touch on the mouth, followed by a spicy kick down the throat.

If you are not a fan of cocktails, the beverage package includes Pearly Bay Shiraz Cabernet, Pearly Bay Chenin Chardonnay and Carlsberg Draught Beer

CHAMPAGNE
On top of the curated buffet and cocktails, we are treated with free flow of champagne by upgrading to the newly introduced Bollinger Champagne beverage package. This French Bollinger Special Cuvée Champagne excites our taste buds with velvety bubbles, leaving behind the refreshing notes of pear, brioche and spicy aromas. Sweet, crisp and well-structured!

It pairs perfectly with any fish dishes especially sushi and sashimi on the
Saturday Night Vibes’ curated buffet. Now let's see what's on the buffet bars.

SATURDAY NIGHT VIBES' BUFFET
Rejoice, Seafood Lovers! 

The main highlight of the evening is of course the "Cirque du Culinaire" unique dining concept which spoils us with choices of the freshest dishes from various show kitchens. The curated buffet also includes the signature dishes from the collection of restaurants at Feast Village such as:
❤ Fisherman’s Cove  Fresh seafood
❤ Luk Yu Tea House  Fresh king prawn noodles
❤ Sentidos Gastrobar – The Latin Grill
❤ Khushi Spice  Authentic Indian cuisine

The specialty dishes from other restaurants in Feast Village are served directly to the table;
No worries about not getting to try any of these popular items!

Luk Yu Tea House's Special "Sang Har Mee"
Look at the prawn!! The flesh is so juicy and sweet.

Apart from that, I also enjoy the wide spread of seafood selections including Sashimi, Seafood Paella, freshly shucked Pacific Oysters, Snow White Dancing Prawns and Tiger Prawn Skewers Seasoned with Togarashi

Meat lovers would definitely fall in love with the finest Wagyu Beef Cheeks and Five-Spice Rack of Lamb, which are ready to melt in the mouth.


Cold cuts and cheese platters are aplenty here too, surely you'd find something you like on the buffet spread!

How about some traditional Chinese staples such as Chicken Rice and Dim Sum?

DESSERTS
Putting a sweet end note to our swanky dinner, the pastry chef has prepared a colorful platter of desserts for our enjoyment. And there are more on the dessert bar to be chosen from! This is such a sweet heaven that I can't resist myself from reaching for one after another. 

Did I forget to mention that Shook! serves handcrafted desserts and chocolates
which surprise me with different flavours and textures too?

BE ENTERTAINED!
Throughout the dinner, the entertainer and magician are at Shook! spreading love and laughters to the diners. 

We are already on sugar high after the dinner, so let's sit back and be serenaded with live music.

Saturday Night Vibes end with a couple more cocktails and a set of live music performance. During the Saturday of our visit, we are lucky to meet Budak Nakal Hujung Simpang, a reggae/Nusantara Ska 10-piece band with melodic chops and stage charisma that has made them a crowd favourite at festivals.

As there are different bands performing every Saturday, I don't mind coming back for another night of music. You may want to check out the performers' schedule so that you wouldn't miss them:
