Crispy Buns with Salted Butter and Cream Cheese With Fried Shallots
I had 7 of it! This is how good the bun was. It is served warm and fluffy. Despite the bun is fluffy the skins remain crispy.
Back Angus Beef Carpaccio with Sautéed Wood Mushroom, Parmesan Cheese and Pesto RM70
This dish is like a plate of art. I feel slightly guilty of eating it.
Pan Seared River Prawns with Spring Vegetable Salad topped with Paprika Dressing
Organic Lamb 2 Ways RM165
Well done lamb loin which maintain the meat still juicy and tender. The lamb served on this platter is tortellini with a celeriac puree and Balinese pepper sauce.
A seafood platter for those who don’t want to have something so meaty.
Halibut “Saltimbocca” paired with Smoked Duck, braised lentils served with safron juice RM148
12 Hours Braised Black Angus Short Ribs RM135
The short ribs were slowly cooked for a whole 12 hours till it soften. The ribs are tender and flavourful results from the long braise hours that the ribs absorbs the sauce.
The dining experience comes to a “sweet” end with sinfully decadent desserts such as dark chocolate sphere. The hot chocolate are poured on top to melt the ball and mix with the almond crumble inside.
Served with yoghurt sorbet, almond crumble and passion fruit.
Granny Smith apple tart. The crispy apple tart topped with a scoop of home made sorbet are a great dessert for a finale. I can’t take the chocolate dessert as I’ll get hyped up and stay awake all night long.
Petit fours to accompany our coffees and teas just perfect! A bite to the macarons with a sip of coffee or tea ends the dinner with a bang.
