A group of us were invited to sample the five-course Christmas Eve and Christmas Day set dinner. We got to try an oasis of fusion cuisine such as the special hand-carved roast turkey, steamed sole fish, pumpkin lasagna, pan-seared red snapper and more.
Held at the modern and relaxed Sri Tanjung Cafe from 7pm, the menu priced at RM180nett per couple includes complimentary party pack and a glass of house wine/draught beer.

We started with a simply gorgeous amuse bouche, followed by a prawn appetizer and a warm spiced wintermelon apple soup. The creamy soup captured attention with its balanced blending of wintermelon, apple, cream, and a light touch of spice.
Amuse bouche – scallop gratin with cilantro mayo
Appetizer – prawn and mango salad with edamame and finger lime aioli
Spiced wintermelon and apple soup with double cream, garlic croutons and chives
For the entree, there is a choice between the roasted turkey, steamed sole fish or the potato and rocket gnocchi.
For those looking for a good dose of carbs, go for the potato and rocket gnocchi. The pieces of light green gnocchi are served in creamy blue cheese sauce and topped with salsa verde and generous sprinkling of parmesan crisp.

The choice of roasted turkey will take center stage. Accompanied by a range of sides such as pumpkin mash, Yorkshire pudding, buttered asparagus and garden vegetables, the dish is paired with two sauces – rich turkey au jus and cranberry sauce.

For seafood lovers, the steamed sole fish is the choice. Partnered with herb and macadamia nut glaze, pumpkin souffle, and snow peas, the dish delights with the creamy classic lemongrass beurre blanc.
