Nouri invites One Michelin Star Restaurant Lasai

For our final 4 Hands event at Nouri this year, we are hosting Chef Rafael Costa e Silva from Lasai in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Rafa and I go way back; we met playing futsal at the Culinary Institute of America in the early 2000s. He quit a career in banking to pursue cooking, ultimately landing the Head Chef job of 2 Michelin Star restaurant Mugaritz in Basque Country.

Open to much critical acclaim, Lasai routinely ranks as one of the best restaurants in Latin America and currently stands at number 26, on the Latin American 50 Best.

Rafa obsesses over his ingredients, working dutifully with local producers to showcase the cultural and natural diversity of Brazil. He was among the first to recognise the importance of sourcing sustainably in Brazil and opened two potagers (kitchen gardens) in Rio to grow seasonal fruits and vegetables for his restaurant. His menus may change frequently, but what remains constant is a desire to cook local and beautiful food from the heart.

We cannot wait to have Rafa at Nouri on November 14 and 15 for two days of intense collaboration. The menu will feature traditional Brazilian ingredients and techniques, the best of our partnering farms in the Cameron Highlands, local catch from bubu fisherman, and a lot of ingenuity.



We are open for Lunch from Tuesday to Friday 11:30 am to 3:00 pm , and Dinner from Monday to Saturday 6:00 pm to 12:00 am.

Last order for dinner at 10:30 pm.
We are closed on Sunday.
