VOiD Restaurant is Full. of Delights. Avant-garde in Johor

VOiD Restaurant is Full. of Delights

We had a memorable omakase dinner at VOiD Restaurant, the newest and youngest eating place in Johor now.

VOiD is the brainchild of Chef Shawn and Pastry Chef Sunny. Folks familiar with the JB food scene will know Shawn from his W Espresso Sporting Club and Rowan & Parsley days.

We asked Shawn why he picked the name VOiD for his restaurant. He said the restaurant is like a pure canvas where he and partners can paint anything they like - no boundaries, full of surprising delights yet always ready for more ideas.

VOiD is JB's youngest not only because the restaurant opened less than a month ago, but also because it probably has JB's youngest team. Shawn the oldest in the VOiD team is 26 and the youngest member is just 19 😮 It's a young team brimming with energy and aspirations.

VOiD serves fusion omakase for dinner and brunch (including vegetarian options) from 10am to 5pm.

Once our whole party arrived, Sunny briefly introduced VOiD's omakase dinner and checked with everyone of us, one by one, on our food allergies, if any.

VOiD's omakase dinner consists of 11 courses. Prices range from RM288++ (fish) to RM398++ (wagyu beef) per pax depending on the choice of meat for the main course.

Sunny recommended us a 2017 Chilean Concha Y Toro Resvardo Cabernet Sauvignon from VOiD's cellar. The red wine felt light-bodied with a nice finish. It's a versatile wine with fruity aromas that went well with the red meat, cheese and pasta we had.

All set, wine flowing, our omakase dinner ready to rock and roll - we can see the intense focus of the crew in the open kitchen.

Pastry Chef Sunny making our starter.

Our starter - a tiny tart with a crumbly buttery base studded with a marshmallow, topped with cheese, torched and then crowned with a pinch of sea weed. It's an interesting blend of buttery savoury sweetness with a mix of crumbly crunch and spongy gummy mouthfeel.

Good ol' melty butter on warm fluffy bread - what more need I say.... ?

Chopped shrimp wrapped in avocado mousse served chilled on a hard crackly biscuit.

Buttermilk chicken - this was like a piece cut out of a typical fried chicken chop. Perfectly executed, cooked to just the right doneness, it was much juicier, more tender inside and crispier outside. Nice gentle savoury sweet flavour. Great starter as it made us hungry for more 😄

Foie gras mousse dressed with truffle puree served in an egg shell.

The soft airy creamy mousse was stacked deep with layers of robust savouriness from the foie gras and truffle. I love this.

Join me to watch Tours of Discovery premiering on Singapore Mediacorp Channel 8 on Tuesday, 13 Nov 2018 at 8:30pm. No lah, I am not in the show lah. I like it because of the interesting people, places and activities featured, and believe you will enjoy it too.

Classic French Onion Soup.

This was the best French onion soup that I've had for a long time. Deep layers of savoury sweet flavours from the Gruyère Swiss cheese and caramelised onions. Love the bread which sponged up the grease and flavours from the soup and cheese.

Pork snow and pork lardo on an almond meringue. The candy like sweetness of almond meringue paired with lardy savoury sweetness of pork lardo. It's an acquired taste and I love it 😋

Unagi with angel hair spaghetti. The soft pasta was well greased with butter and olive oil well infused with the distinct taste of unagi (eel). A bit of chili gave the dish a hint of spicy heat.

Iberico pork with pork jus and pumpkin puree.

Lovely juicy savoury sweet chunky blocks of sous vided, pan seared, then baked Iberico pork. I enjoyed it by slicing it into thiner slices. The pork jus reminded me of savoury char siew or BBQ sauce.

Sweet dessert of aerated chocolate with hazelnut snow and orange foam.
