Kuala Lumpur, 16 March 2004
Before temperatures rise at the “Hottest Race in the World”, Formula One driver Juan Pablo Montoya whizzed down to Kuala Lumpur’s Bintang Walk to dine at his favourite restaurant in town with his close friend, YTL chief Tan Sri Francis Yeoh.
Together with his lovely wife Connie as well as his parents, Pablo and Libia, Montoya enjoyed a cosy meal in the private room at Shook! restaurant in Starhill.
Montoya likes Japanese cuisine while Connie prefers pasta, which causes one of them to compromise when they need to choose a restaurant to dine in. Fortunately, the couple gets to indulge in their favourite meals at Shook!, as the restaurant offers a wide ranging menu from its four kitchens – the Japanese, Italian, Chinese and Western Grill.
The Montoyas rate Shook! as the “best restaurant in town” for the variety in the menu and the ambience. Last year alone, the couple visited the restaurant three times during their stay in Malaysia in conjunction with the grand prix then.
