Sanook @ Plaza Kelana Jaya

February 6, 2010

Sanook had a promising menu for a recent Guinness-infused food promo. But its friendly service and serene lakeside setting couldn't compensate for the flaws in its food.

Mille-feuille filled with prawns, calamari and mussels cooked with Guinness, braised baby spinach and sweet cilantro mango mojo. Contained tiny bits of seafood that could scarcely be tasted in the ketchup-like gravy.

Chicken thigh stuffed with black truffle & foie gras, finished with Guinness white foam. A hearty portion that was artfully presented, but the Guinness foam was nowhere to be found.

Roasted cod with Guinness Catalonian broth and crispy leek. The menu listed two other ingredients that went missing: glazed pea puree and roasted tomatoes. The recipe was interesting but unsuccessful, since the Guinness overpowered the fish.

Affogato Al Guinness (ice cream in Guinness reduction, topped with whipped cream). Basically just cookies & cream ice cream drowned in Guinness.
We haven't tried their regular menu, but maybe that would be better.

Two free pints of Guinness Draught.
