On 10 th May 2022. Element Kuala Lumpur celebrates its fifth year anniversary by launching a collection of health conscious, wellness focused menu options for guests dining at its hotel restaurant – TRACE Restaurant and Bar, Level 40.
Adhering to Element’s Brand Value on Balance – offering healthy options and sensible choices while guests are on the road, TRACE aims to introduce healthier selection in its ala-carte and buffet menu while maintaining some of its crowd favorites to diners. The hotel has also embarked on a farm- to –table mission with BoomGrow, to serve fresh and green eats that are great with any choice of food. The greens are harvested from the heart of Kuala Lumpur and served fresh, with the objective of reflecting the newly launched ‘Flavors at 40’ buffet line.
“After two years in lockdown, Malaysians are embracing cleaner eating habits, with less meat, more greens and more plant-based options. At Element we aim to source our produce locally with the intention of reducing food miles and our carbon footprint. We still offer meat dishes, but we have incorporated more locally-grown vegetables, locally sourced meat, and seafood and cooking ingredients into our buffet line.” – said Executive Head Chef Mohd Taib Ridhwan.
“I have always been amazed with the creativity in the culinary world. Through the exceptional skills of Chef Taib and his team, we are excited to see how our seriously great greens can help to elevate diners experience at Element Kuala Lumpur” shared Dr. Jay Desan, Co-founder of BoomGrow.
