Molecular Spectacular

Another brilliant and successful molecular gastronomy dinner was held again at Citrus Wine and Dine where Chef Simon Lee and his wife Eric Kok closed the restaurant and wowed 24 guests with the same menu as reviewed in Musings IE 209. This time however, there were even more refinements as in more aromas, subtler nuances in taste, and as the service staff were more confident, more efficient service was experienced from start to finish.

Said Puan Sri Datuk Sandra Lee who has dined at some of the best tables around the world, “This is some of the best food I’ve ever experienced or tasted. Now I won’t have to go to Michelin Star restaurants in other places knowing we have our own superlative chef in Simon Lee, right here on our Ipoh doorstep. We are so proud of you Simon and so glad you decided to come home to Ipoh to roost. Keep it up.”
