Here’s where you can find 24k gold leaf desserts and steaks in KL in 2022
Stay golden as we explore the city’s well-known eateries for edible gold leaf desserts and steaks.
Call it a touch of luxury; edible gold is a delicious decorative application on sweet and savory treats. Opulent gold leaf is crafted from 24k gold while appearing in two forms: loose leaf and transfer leaf. Generally, a loose sheet is best used for small confections, while a transfer sheet is what chefs would apply to cover a larger area, such as a cake or an entire steak.
Edible gold flakes are quite common on both sweet and savory dishes these days. According to KamiKoto, using edible gold in food is a thousands of years old practice to honor the gods, boost vitality and show off one’s wealth. Today, these sparkling finishes have evolved into a touch of decadence where you can find them incorporated into a variety of dishes from fine dining to fast food. Experience it yourself by visiting these restaurants and dessert eateries in KL.
