MIGF: The Restaurant @ The Club Saujana

October 26, 2012

The Club Saujana Resort's restaurant remains one of the Klang Valley's most enjoyable eateries, its oasis-like beauty partnered with fabulous food and sterling service.
Earlier entry on The Restaurant: March 11, 2009.

The Restaurant's MIGF menu costs RM210++, not the cheapest but one of the most worthwhile, thanks to its thoughtfully conceived six-course selection.

Not exactly part of the MIGF courses, but an amuse bouche of crab cannelloni packs a nice little carb-protein punch that's certain to get the gustatory juices going.

The highlights of this meal come early: foie gras ice cream with foie gras terrine, smoked duck and wantan-topped pear sounds like something that'll trigger instant gout attacks, but there's no disputing the short-term gratification from this sumptuous, savory spread.

One of 2012's tastiest fish dishes: grilled salmon medallion, still pink and scarcely cooked within, with a moat of whipped Hollandaise sauce, horseradish and parsley oil.

Lamb patties with croutons-meet-croquettes morsels of pulled lamb shoulder. Complemented by potato goulash in paprika gravy and sour cream.

One for the fish fans: Halibut poached with olive oil, served with halibut-stuffed ravioli, asparagus and semi-dried tomatoes.

Beef extravaganza: Black Angus striploin and braised cheek, magnificently meaty, plated with baked cepes mushroom ravioli, garlic-roasted spinach and celeriac puree.

Cake and Mousse: Dark chocolate with mango praline and sorbet. The surprising mix of tastes and textures for some of these courses can be breathtaking.

Here's a happy experiment, not on the MIGF menu, but a potential future entry on The Restaurant's main menu: a hot, crispy-creamy chocolate bonbon with mousse made of champagne-steeped rose jelly.

Thanks to The Restaurant's chef extraordinaire Alexander Waschl and blogger Wackybecky for the invitation to enjoy this excellent meal.
