By now, some of us would be familiar with KL restaurant, Symphony by Chef Jo at Damansara City Mall. The contemporary restaurant is known for its eccentric yet delicious culinary selections from smoked duck mapo tofu, salmon teriyaki to lobster thermidor, and its best seller - the wagyu beef ?

With a huge variety on the menu, you'd be spoilt for choices. Just when you think it couldn't get any better, Chef Jo does just that, he comes back with more tasty food in conjunction with Ramadan - the Nasi Tok Jembal (served with wagyu beef) and the Lamb Kabsa ?

The beautiful Nasi Tok Jembal platter consists of a variety of traditional Malaysian dishes all in one plate. Enjoy a plate of blue and aromatic nasi kerabu served with tasty fried fish, salted egg, kuih tumis, and of course - tender and juicy pieces of charcoal grilled wagyu beef ? Not to mention that the dish (and the place) is totally instagrammable too!
