A nostalgic taste of old Chalet at Sabayon, EQ

Eu Hooi-Khaw

A nostalgic note is in the port wine sabayon with stollen ice cream, gingerbread sponge with marinated red currants. – The Malaysian Insight pic, December 19, 2020.

DINING at Chalet in the old Equatorial Hotel Kuala Lumpur was an immersion into Swiss cuisine, with French, Italian and German influences. The Chalet interior was distinctive: with dark timber rafters, an Alpine horn and other Swiss artefacts.

What do I remember about the food at Chalet? Definitely the raclette cheese being melted under the salamander, scraped onto a plate and served with pickles and baby potatoes.   You would get a whiff of the melting cheese as you entered the restaurant, so popular it was then.
