Eat Up 2 @ Restaurant Markus
Our Eat Up 2 private dining event at Restaurant Markus was a cozy and intimate affair, with good conversation and excellent wine complementing the great food that was prepared meticulously for us by Chef Markus.
Our wine was provided by Penang’s foremost wine connoisseur Mr. T.Y. Sam and his friends at Villa Vino, a very well-known wine distributor in Penang. Mr. Sam personally selected the wine that was paired with the food and everything was perfect.
We were also very fortunate to have Spiegelau Malaysia provide us with their beautiful crystal wine glasses for the evening, and we managed to do a taste comparison between drinking wine from a normal glass and a Spiegelau glass.
You may not expect it but there is a world of difference in the taste/aroma and everyone who drinks wine on a regular basis should definitely look into owning their own crystal wine glasses – we highly recommend Spiegelau. In fact, most wine aficionados (like Sam) bring their own glasses with them to dinner!
Chef Markus chose some of the greatest hits from his menu for our dinner, like the Cold Angel Hair Pasta w/ Hokkaido Scallop Sashimi & Caviar, which is one of our favorites at Restaurant Markus.
Markus’ modern Italian cuisine is a breath of fresh air in a market saturated with below-par “Italian food” and we love his blend of modern cooking techniques (such as sous-vide) and quality ingredients to bring an enjoyable dining experience to patrons.
