[ELITE Review] 3 Luscious Delights at Raintree @ Menara CIMB

While looking for a restaurant with an alfresco to chill after a hectic week, I came across Raintree – a restaurant at Menara CIMB with a mix of Thai and Western cuisine which houses a relaxing alfresco.
Impressed with its minimalist design yet vibrant ambience, I and my friend made a visit with no hesitation. Once settled down, I just couldn’t wait to try the food here and also to share with you the best dishes you must not forgo when come to the restaurant. That’s why I had a friendly staff introduced 3 dishes which are much-loved by Raintree‘s customers. 


1/ Lamb Rack

The Lamb Rack was presented in an unpretentious way with the main focus on its flavors (which I was teasing my friend that it “cuts straight to the point” as the name suggested). Perked atop perfectly-grilled seasonal vegetables and potato wedges, the high-quality lamb racks whetted our appetite with its irresistible aroma. We were both amazed by the juiciness of the lamb while the racks were grilled to à point as the meat could easily dry out if it was not handled well. A great delight for lamb aficionados!

2/ Beef Short Ribs

Our next dish, which we couldn’t stop talking about until now, was the signature Beef Short Ribs. The big chunk of beef short ribs on a sizzling hot pan totally stunned us for a moment. Our first slice into the rib was satisfied as the meat easily fell of the bone, promised a melt-in-the-mouth sensation. Of course, it didn’t let us down with the well-marinated, fork-tender meat and the splendid BBQ sauce.

3/ Rib Eye

Finally, we finished our meal with a true show stopper – Raintree’s signature Rib Eye. I have always been a big fan of rib eye and for sure I had some expectation for this signature dish. I was delighted as the rib eye was absolutely luscious. Using fine ingredients and top-quality rib eye, the chef skillfully preserved the meat’s juiciness and taste with a touch of the house-made black pepper sauce. The sauce itself was an exquisite combination that accentuated the flavors of the rib eye. The seasonal vegetables and potato wedges are worth-trying as well!

Fine Dining Etiquette : Why you need 3 forks and what are they for

Blog - Dining Etiquette

Have you ever watched films with scenes showing how royal families dine and asked yourself, “Why do they have to use so many different types of cutlery?”. Well, here you will find out what they are all for! Plus, maybe you can show off a little the next time you dine at a fancy fine dining restaurant.

TABLE SETTINGS AND THE TYPES OF CUTLERY

Credit : The University of Kansas

Some may say, why so many? I don’t need 3 forks just for a meal! Yes we know, it can be a little overwhelming if you are not familiar with this. Referring to the image you will see, what each cutlery functions are and what dish it’s for. In case you are wondering, the general rule is to start on the outside and work your way in.

On a brighter note, what you see in the image above is a full table setting and it might differ from a restaurant’s table setting.

Credit : enfin by James Won

Here’s a sample of a table setting from enfin by James Won. Typically, restaurant will keep the table setting at a minimal or based on dishes served to ensure customer a comfortable dining experience. So, there’s no need to be intimidated, just dine and enjoy the meal!

HOW TO USE YOUR CUTLERY TO COMMUNICATE. REALLY?

Now that you know what all the types of cutlery is about, it’s time to find out what to do with them after you have finished your meal. Here you can see that placing your cutlery in a certain way actually means something. However, the question is, does it even matter or is it just for fun!?

 

Of course, you can try these out as it’s no harm being a classy monsieur or madame once awhile. However, do not expect the waiters to notice this as they might overlooked the silverware on your plate. Therefore, it’s advisable that if you need some assistant, simply raise a hand and ask for the waiter’s help which is definitely faster.

 

All in all the best practice when you are done with your food is to leave your fork and knife together on the plate. It’s never a good idea to leave your silverware on the table as it will dirty the table and leave a mess. So, the next time you are going to a fine dining restaurant or event, be sure to keep these dining etiquette in mind!

Want to try a fine dining restaurant? You can do so at enfin by James Won, an international multi-award contemporary French Restaurant!

[ELITE Review] 3 Tantalizing Dishes @ Sanoook, Sunway Pyramid

We came to Sanoook on a weekend when my friend and I were indecisive to choose whether to head to a Thai or a Japanese restaurant. As the discussion was going on, my friend recalled Sanoook – a restaurant with dishes representing a love affair of Thai and Japanese cuisine, as she once wanted to go there since its first launch in Sunway Pyramid. Of course, I was more than excited to go! 

As we sat down in this cosy and welcoming restaurant, we were thrilled to know the name “Sanoook” is actually inspired by the word “Sanook” which means “fun” in Thai and an “o” is added as an illustration for a circle of friendship. We could not wait to try the dishes here and thus, to share with you our 3 favorites which would be yours too!

Its light crackling charred skin is a joy in the mouth while the flesh has a tender goodness. Did you know the salmon head is high in Omega-3 fatness, vitamin A, zinc and iron? A scrumptious and healthy delight!

The Maguro Yukke or Tuna Tartare is a true show-stopper for a delightful gastronomic journey at Hanare. The fresh and high-quality tuna are hand-picked and skilfully cut into small cubes then placed together with assorted vegetables, egg yolk and dressing. The melt-in-the-mouth tuna has a characteristic umami flavor which is then accentuated by the smooth egg yolk and fresh vegetables. A simple yet luscious dish.
