Three-course meal features quail.

QUAIL is making an appearance this month at The Village Restaurant, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside.

Located on the shore of the Putrajaya Lake, next to Marina Putrajaya in Precinct 5, patrons are promised an experience while dining with the sunset setting in the evening.

The hotel’s current Farm Quail Food promotion is a three-course meal.

For the appetiser, sous chef Ahmad Zaidi Abd Razak has prepared a bowl of White Mushroom Cappuccino with Vanilla Cream.

The soup is worthy of mention, and not just because it has such an interesting name.

Ahmad Zaidi said the mushroom cappuccino soup makes for a cheerful party hors d’oeuvre when served in a small vessel like an espresso cup.

“It is a fancy name for the mushroom soup as it looks like a frothy cappuccino with a dollop of whipped cream.

“The vanilla sauce lends a unique taste and aroma to the mushroom soup,” he said.

The mushroom soup is served in a fancy espresso cup and garnished with creme fraiche and a dash of mushroom powder.

As for the main star of the menu, Ahmad Zaidi said the quails were marinated for at least a day.

“The best marination process takes one day, for the meat to absorb all flavours of the herbs and spice to make it tasty,” he said.

Marinated with various ingredients such as onion, garlic and thyme, the quail is served with a side dish of mix grilled vegetables.

True to the chef’s word, the quail is flavourful, and its bones are surprisingly crispy enough to be eaten as well.

The quail’s egg is also tasty, which is a nice surprise especially if one does not really fancy quail eggs.

For an unusual end to dinner, we were served Savory Soup (top pic) as dessert, which is a plate of chocolate mousse on top of a bed of coconut flakes.

The Farm Quail Set Menu, available until Sept 30, is priced at RM138+ per person and is available for dinner from Monday to Thursday.
