Tujo at Ascott Kuala Lumpur: Restaurant Review
Seven’s luckier than ever: Replacing Ascott’s 7atenine, Tujo heralds a triumphant revamp of this venue, now branded a “bar-serrie” where customers can “eat, play and live.”
It’s been seven years since 7atenine first became a landmark in the city’s nerve center; this space has since seen multiple face-lifts, but this name change and refurbishment constitute the sleekest polishing so far of the Soul Society Group’s crown jewel.
Lit with Modo chandeliers, Tujo looks impressively even lovelier than 7atenine, thanks to the prowess of Poole Associates, which says that simple-but-stylish Danish designs of the 1960s inspired this vision of a comfortable metropolitan hangout.
Tujo’s cuisine forges further with the East-meets-West playful flamboyance for which 7atenine became beloved. Patrons will have plenty of fun sharing this Chicken “Stinger” Satay, partnered with pineapple salsa, nuts and spicy shrimp paste for a sauce reminiscent of rojak.
Classic French Stew
Grilled seafood, steaks, lamb and chicken are a cornerstone of Tujo’s menu. The affably efficient service team will probably push the lobster (RM160++ for 500 grams), rubbed with the customer’s choice of Montreal salt, herb butter glaze or coriander lemongrass.
Tujo’s cocktails are fun too: note the lit-cinnamon/cigarette flair/flare of The Funeral For Jack (bourbon, passion fruit puree, maple syrup, apple juice, basil), alongside The New Fashionista (tequila, watermelon juice, lime juice).
