PULLMAN Putrajaya Lakeside is offering couples a chance to dine under the stars this Valentine’s Day.
Diners at The Village, will have a view of Putrajaya Lake while enjoying their four- course meal.
The romantic dinner starts with a fresh garden mesclun salad marinated with chilled scallops, prawns and sprinkled with fruit salsa.
The fruit salsa is made up of diced strawberries, grapes, passion fruit and mango, giving the salad a sweet flavour.
The next dish is minted pea broth with roast chicken bacon and truffle oil drops.
The soup was creamy and delicious.
The bread that came with it was crispy without being too hard or chewy.
“I added truffle oil to give the soup a nice aroma.
“The chicken bacon pieces give customers something to chew while drinking the soup,” said sous chef Ahmad Zaidi Abd Razak.
Next, was the main course.
Diners will have a choice of oven-roasted chicken supreme with fresh Asian vegetables, potato herbs or roasted black pepper au jus or baked Canadian cod steak atop a medley of vegetables, green peas puree and tomato beurre blanc.
Ahmad Zaidi said he stuffed mushroom mousse into the chicken.
“I used chicken meat and blended it with eggs, chunky mushrooms and whipped cream to make the mousse.
“I then topped it with pistachio crumble with herbs and spices,” he said.
He recommended that diners eat the parmesan cheese crisp crackers that accompanies the dish within 10 minutes.
The crisp added a tinge of saltiness to the dish and was very tasty.
The mashed potato that came with the dish was light and fluffy.
Those who prefer seafood will find the Canadian cod steak fresh and soft.
The sauce is served separately.
“I used fish stock, spices, whipped cream and butter for the sauce.
“I then top it with fresh dill oil,” said Ahmad Zaidi.
The green peas puree was smooth while the shimijii mushrooms were soft.
To finish, “Lovely Couple Chocolate Symphony” will be served as dessert.
It is chocolate mousse and a heart-shaped chocolate served with fruits and cranberry sauce.
The Cupid set is available today, priced at RM138+ per set.
