The food scene in Kuala Lumpur was a totally different ball game and, to an extent, an entirely new ballpark than it was a decade ago. From Instagram feeds, it’s clear that the city’s growing multitudes of ravenous foodies aren’t complaining. It’s also a natural evolution of the culinary world that, when standards and offerings become more refined, so do palates. Or at least, we hope so. A striking example of this is the recently opened Seed by Whitegrass, a confident offshoot of its Michelin-starred counterpart Whitegrass in Singapore. It’s housed in the curiously sounding The Five development in Damansara Heights, which a decade ago was the location of the United Nations’ offices.
