If you’re a foodie seeking a truly unique and immersive dining experience, El Kano Dine & Bar is a restaurant that promises to take you on a sci-fi-inspired journey through Spanish-infused European cuisine. Located strategically in KL’s city centre, this vibrant and upscale venue is not your typical restaurant – it’s the first digital aquarium restaurant hidden in a carpark, adding an element of surprise and adventure to your dining escapade.
Upon entering El Kano, you’ll be immediately captivated by its distinctive projection-screen decor, which transports patrons into various dimensions, from the vastness of outer space to the mesmerizing depths of the blue sea. The blend of Star Wars elements with futuristic themes creates an ambiance that is sure to dazzle your senses and ignite your curiosity.
Now, let’s dive into the culinary delights that El Kano has to offer. The menu boasts a rich selection of colourful and contemporary Spanish specialties, Italian pasta, and even French escargot, all thoughtfully crafted at reasonable prices.
During our weekend visit, we decided to explore the gastronomic wonders that El Kano had in store. To start, we indulged in the Escargot, served with a delightful combination of white wine, microgreens, and garlic cream. The flavors melded together harmoniously, presenting a unique twist on this classic French delicacy.
Next up was the El Kano Seafood Platter, a seafood lover’s dream come true. The platter was adorned with fresh oysters, tiger prawns, Hokkaido scallops, sliced tako, Hamachi, and herring roe, accompanied by lemon wedges, Tabasco, shallot red wine vinegar, and sesame soy sauce. Each morsel was a burst of oceanic freshness, and the various dipping sauces added an exciting dimension to the seafood experience.
Moving on to the main course, we couldn’t resist trying the Signature Fish Taco. The deep-fried fish fillet, paired with citrus mayo and a refreshing mango & pomegranate salsa, was a delightful blend of textures and flavors that left us craving for more.
For those who prefer a heartier option, the Premier Wagyu Beef Patties served with short-grain rice, nori, and miso cream dipping was a comforting and satisfying choice. The succulent wagyu beef patties paired beautifully with the creamy miso dipping sauce.
We also sampled the Chicken Thigh Burger, which came with smoky tomato ketchup, gochujang paste, and a side of crispy French fries. The fusion of flavors in this burger was a true representation of El Kano’s commitment to creative culinary excellence.
An item that piqued our curiosity from their menu was the Pasta Laksa – a rich and creamy dry Singapore-style curry laksa with fresh prawns. Though a departure from traditional Spanish and European dishes, it proved to be an unexpected highlight of our dining experience, showcasing the restaurant’s versatility and willingness to venture into diverse culinary territories.
To conclude our unforgettable meal, we indulged in the Fluffy Pancakes – a sweet delight topped with almonds, pistachios, and sun-dried apricots. The layered pancakes were a perfect ending to the feast, leaving us feeling content and delighted.
El Kano Dine & Bar truly impressed us with its imaginative fusion of sci-fi ambiance and European cuisine. The passionate culinary team’s dedication to crafting unique and delectable dishes makes it a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts looking to embark on a one-of-a-kind gastronomic journey.
