MICHELIN French-Japanese Restaurant From Singapore Has Landed In Malaysia

Seed by Whitegrass has officially opened its doors in the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur, offering a unique dining experience that celebrates nature-inspired French-Japanese cuisine. It shares the same passion for nature- inspired cuisine as its Michelin-starred parent restaurant, Whitegrass in Singapore, while also infusing a touch of bistronomy into the city’s dining scene.


Stunning New MICHELIN-Starred French-Japanese Restaurant in KL

At Seed, guests can indulge in an authentic and laid-back dining experience, where French and Japanese culinary techniques are harmoniously blended to create dishes bursting with flavour and innovation. The menu showcases a fusion of traditional fare with a modern twist, meticulously crafted using the freshest ingredients available.

Leading the culinary team at Seed is Chef Joshua Ho, a highly skilled and experienced chef from Whitegrass restaurant in Singapore. Chef Joshua’s impressive culinary journey includes stints at renowned establishments such as Esquina, Caffe B, and Tamago En, before joining Whitegrass. As the head chef of Seed by Whitegrass, Chef Joshua continues to embody the passion of Whitegrass, offering classic dishes with a modern twist and elegant plating, showcasing the very best of French-Japanese cuisine in a casual dining setting.

One of the standout dishes on the menu is the signature Amadai with Crispy Skin, Romanesco, and Beurre Meuniere. Amadai, also known as tilefish, is prepared using the meticulous oil bath method, resulting in an impeccably crispy skin that enhances the overall dining experience. This technique elevates the texture and flavour of the fish, creating a harmonious blend of tenderness and crunch in every delectable bite. Complementing the Amadai is the visually stunning Romanesco, a cruciferous vegetable with a delicate taste that adds a delightful contrast to the rich flavours of the fish. The dish is further elevated with the addition of Beurre Meuniere, a classic French brown butter sauce infused with subtle hints of lemon and herbs, enhancing the natural flavours of the dish and creating a truly memorable culinary journey. This exquisite dish exemplifies Seed by Whitegrass’ commitment to using the finest ingredients and innovative cooking techniques to craft an extraordinary dining experience.


The interior design of Seed artfully reflects the essence of nature. The curve counter structure represents layering hills and a “stream,” evoking a sense of tranquillity. A cloud-like metal chain hanging from the ceiling creates an imaginary experience of dining in an open space, while the combination of the open kitchen and curved counter provides a unique socializing environment where privacy and openness coexist. Whether it is an intimate dinner for two or a gathering of friends, Seed offers the perfect ambiance.
