HO HO HO! Awww isn’t Santa cute? Well, I ate him for dinner >:-P
The above is an actual Yule Log that’s so tasty we wanted more! This, after all, is just a teaser to what’s coming up for Christmas Celebrations at Prince Hotel’s finest restaurants: ENJU for Japanese, Tai Zi Heen for Chinese and finally Eccucino for all things good!
Basically in conjunction with the season celebration this year end, Executive Chef DJ and his culinary team has specially prepared a host of tantalizing menus for Christmas and Year-End celebrations at Prince’s restaurants together with Japanese Chef Thomas and Hong Kong Award-winning Chef Ricky! These includes some of the food prepared above, and I swear upon my tainted tongue that none of these are NOT to die for!
You’re basically presented with the best of Seafood on Ice- fresh oysters, mussels and prawns in the buffet menu. Beautifully Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy are also served with FOUR freaking cranberry sauces to choose from: Cranberry Mustard Relish, Beet Chutney, Chipotle Cranberry Sauce and Cranberry-orange Compote. All of them are unique both in flavour and in texture, a definite must try!
Which is your favourite?
The decorations were superb to spark the festive Christmassy mood, something which I really love to bits. Not only will you see Gingerbread houses popping out of nowhere, there’s even a life-sized one situated just outside Eccucino for your viewing pleasure! (not to be eaten of course!)
And as you can see, there’s a free flow of chocolate fountain for your eating pleasure :p
On the 25th (CHRISTMAS DAY!) you can get all these and loads more at Eccucino’s X’Mas day Buffet Brunch from 12 noon to 4pm, along with freshly prepared omelets and egg dishes with beef bacon or sausage, pancakes, selection of salads, appetizers and Asian specialties, only at RM98++ per person! Reservation: 03-2170 8888 ext. 8119/8120
Anyway we headed for our first course set at ENJU, and boy were we shocked at the SIZE of that freaking Hokkaido Spider Crab that we were about to eat! The Nama Tarabagani- Steamed fresh Hokkaido giant crab leg served grated young ginger sauce was absolutely superb! Each morsel of the semi-cold, sweet flesh is an experience that you’ll never get anywhere else (that is, unless you actually fly to Hokkaido! :P)
We also had the Mizu Gai Sashimi- Geoduck and mussels tossed with cucumber, cherry tomatoes and mitsuba served with irizake and green plum sauce along with Kaki Oyster Cocktail- Fresh Oysters wrapped with dried seaweed, grated white radish and spring onions, served with Citrus Soy Dressing. Uniquely tasty, they say it’s the perfect aphrodisiac for a lovely Christmas eve 😉
Of course coming with the set you’ll have Awabi Shiru- Creamy rice soup with abalone and minced chives, Ise Ebi Age to Inaniwa Udon- Deep-fried lobster balls served with flat Japanese noodles in shoyu and bonito stock and finally, the Yashinomi Mango Pudding- Mango pudding coated with freshly grated coconut Milk.
You can get all these including Master Chef Thomas Lim’s Christmas Eve Set Dinner Menu at ENJU for only RM120++ per person! (call ENJU at 03-2170 888 ext. 8203)
Tai Zi Heen is not spared at all in these delectable mix of Christmas goodness! Here we have the Tai Zi Heen Cold Appetizer Trio:
Chilled marinated shredded turkey with dried tangerine and pomelo
Smoked duck with century egg
Chilled prawn with tomato dressing
The picture above also shows the Sauteed diced beef tenderloin with leeks, crispy sliced garlic and honey peas in a Vietnamese rice paper basket
Braised pearl shark’s fin with crab meat and crab roe in superior broth, as can be seen in the picture below!
Very nais! 😀
There is also the:

Wok-fried glass noodles with prawns, grouper and squid

Lots of bloggers attended this one including Big Boys Oven, Food Point, Benjicajess, Coco and of course, Ah Bok of Taufulou! We had loads and loads of fun, which I think is very important apart from the taste of the food! (though this one memang really quality la!)
Free flow of ice-cream and choc fountain, anyone?
