Tanzini Upper Deck @G Tower Kuala Lumpur - An enchanted and magical Valentine Special Dinner Menu Review


Where are you planning to bring your special Valentine on this special Valentine Day? I am sure you would like a super nice place with top quality food for this coming special Valentine dinner to impress her. 


Best Restaurant To Eat did a special review for this coming Valentine at one of the finest restaurant in Malaysia; The Tanzini Upper Deck at 28th Floor G Tower, Jalan Tun Razak Kuala Lumpur.


At this height, the restaurant offers you a superb panoramic and breezy view. With the elaborate and posh setup, it is no wonder; the restaurant has won so many accolades including the top awards from the recently 2014 Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF).

Not only the decor was eye pleasing, the food that came after that was equally impressive as it was meticulously crafted and decorated by Chef Eugene. For this romantic occasion, he has crafted a special meal for HIM and HER; each with its own distinct, unique flavours and texture to impress you and your Valentine.


The chef has created the dishes that married both the natural flavours and texture of each of the ingredients to enlighten your taste buds and all your senses during the entire dinner course.


Innocent Looking Candy Floss before transformation

  
On your arrival on that special Valentine night, there is a special welcome drink for HER; which is the HER MAGICAL VALENTINE – a candy floss (blue and pink) with a dose of Absolut Vodka. Watch its magical moment; when the Vodka are added and the transformation of the melting of the candy to liquid. A smooth sweet beginning for your Valentine.


Infusing with Pomegranate Foam


While for HIM is HIS LUXURY VALENTINE – a concoction of Margarita mix with thyme and rosemary – a masculine start to the evening for HIM.


Next, is the BAKERS FEATURE - a Homemade Ciabatta Bread – a soft and fluffy on the inside bread to start off the night accompanied with an olive and special sauce spread.


followed by the CARAMEL CINNAMON PEANUT ROLL – at Tanzini, it advocates healthy food option; all the food served here are sugar free, so the sweetness that are found in the food are natural sweetness of its very own ingredients.


For the AMUSE BOUCHE it is the TSARSKAYA – A French oyster with a multitude of naturally coloured Strawberry, Mango and Passion Fruit Pearls with a dash of Konbu Shoyu (seaweed soy sauce). 


According to the chef, he chooses the French oyster over the others as this oyster has a very unique feature, in that it retains the marine saltiness and gives a unique light salted natural taste to the fresh oyster.


Next, is the HER appetizer which is the STONE CRAB. 


It is a Thai Kerabu style, which has fresh stone crab ceviche and pickled cucumber mixed with a spicy and sourish taste, tossed in a tangy dressing and topped with stone crab floss.


While for HIM appetizer is the BRITTANY BLUE.


It is a combination of poached lobster and crab. The different texture of the seafood gives you the feel of a different level of chewiness and was the perfect match with the light blended soy sauce infused Asian Slaw that gives you a special taste. With the use of wood ear fungus as the base, it adds another springy texture to this dish.


No dinner is complete without the soup, for HERS soup, it is the ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH.


The soup is served with a Butternut Brulee. The natural sweetness from the roasted butternut squash was very evident in the soup. The silky smooth light flavoured soup is a soothing start for the ladies.


While the HIM soup is the CAULIFLOWER With ATARI MISO.


This soup is another chef ingenuity use of a single ingredient in this case cauliflower and with an added spice of the SriRacha to the roasted cauliflower; gives out a light spiciness to the soup. While the use of the Atari Miso; adds a natural salty flavour to this soup.


Next is the starter; for HER is the FREE RANGE CHICKEN PIE.


The tender succulent chicken meat is roll up with chestnut served on a nest of fried vermicelli for the crunch texture. The yellow strip topping are specially cured egg yolk which adds another dimension to this delicious dish. 


While the HIM Starter is the MUSCOVY DUCK SPRING ROLL.


For the men, the duck confit is wrapped in Vietnamese Rice wrap and deep fried to give a crust on the outside while the duck meat has a strong and smooth flavour that was perfectly matched to the Shimeji Mushroom sauce. Just for your info, the Muscovy duck is reared in a farm in Ipoh.


For the INTERMEZZO, you and your Valentine will be served the sorbet of the day, which in our case was the Green Apple with Soy Beans sorbet.


The sorbet was very refreshing change to prepare for the main course.


For the main course, you and your Valentine can choose from either the WAGYU BEEF RIBS – which is a slow Brasied Wagyu Beef Ribs Goulash Style served with Spring Onion Mash and French Beans.


The Wagyu Beef Ribs is one of the signature dishes at Tanzini Upper Deck. The ribs are carefully selected to ensure that every piece has the essential requirement; added another perfectionist note on the dish. It is then slow braised for 72 hours till a tender, flavourful and hearty texture. Its’ aroma captivates your taste buds while you take each bite of the meat.


For fans of the fish you can have the option to choose the BARRAMUNDI – It is Seared Barramundi with Otak Otak wrapped in between and served with Seasonal Vegetables with a San Marzano Coulis sauce.


The fish is sourced from their own farm – which epitomises the tagline of “from farm to table”. It is another way of using a local produce just like the Muscovy Duck coupled with the art and science of cooking, to dish out another inspiring and lip smacking dish.


To end your elegant and perfect Valentine dinner, you will be served the CHOCOLATE AND BUTTER. For your information this sweet ending uses no sugar, all the sweetness is extracted out from the natural taste of the ingredients that are used to make this dessert.
