~ An Elevated Dining Experience ~

Creativity And Taste On A Plate
Combines Good Food With An Impressive View

If you are in search of an exclusive fine-dining experience, try Tanzini Upper Deck at GTower in Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant is currently having a Valentine's Set Dinner, specially designed and created by senior sous Chef Eugene Lee with two set of menus for him and her ~ Gentleman & Ladies respectively.

Impressive Place To Dine

Tanzini Upper Deck Dining

Dining way above ground level seems to be a trend these days with contemporary restaurant serving a view to go with the meal. Those who have never been to Tanzini Upper Deck  in GTower, Kuala Lumpur, should definitely pay this restaurant a visit during this Valentine's Day celebration.  

Breathtaking View From Balcony

Stairways to a Romantic Escapade

Stunningly Beautiful especially after nightfall 

Floor to ceiling glass panels add depth and space and there is a magnificent view of Kuala Lumpur from the balcony alone which is quite breathtaking. The vague reflection of those brightly-lit high rise office buildings makes it as somewhat romantic escapade for modern couples.

 Wine & Dine In Style

Elegant Sky Dining with the Petronas Twin Towers in the backdrop

The modern skyline complementing the relaxing ambience of the restaurant is perfect for couples to celebrate Valentine's Day, and Tanzini senior sous Chef Eugene Lee vows to surprise couples with a seven-course Valentine's Menu exclusively for the Gentlemen & Ladies.

DRINKS
For Him ~  His Luxury Valentine

For Her ~ Her Magical Valentine

Tanzini's Valentine's Day cocktail for ladies -  Her Magical Valentine was whipped up for us to taste as a prelude to our meal. From candy floss to liquid, Mandarin Absolut Vodka and cranberry juice was poured into the cotton candy, creating a special cocktail for the fairer sex.   

Fine Dining Table Setting

Baker's Feature ~ Caramel Cinnamon Peanut Roll

To start, we savoured Tanzini's Valentine's Artisanal Special ~ Caramel Cinnamon Peanut Roll, an in house baker's feature for the day. 

Baker's Feature ~ Homemade Ciabatta Bread


AMUSE BOUCHE
 
For Him & Her ~ Tsarskaya

Teasing the palate with the amuse-bouche is a plate of Tsarskaya - French oyster served with strawberry, mango and passion fruit pearls and some konbu shoyu (seaweed soy  sauce) to enhance the flavour. The tiny droplets of fruit pearls are  prepared through cold gel extrusion method (adding jelly into a syringe and dropping the round shaped pearls into cold olive oil).

Imported live and fresh direct from France, the oyster of Cancale is noted for its taste of iodine as well as its firm flesh, meaty, nutty flavour and being slightly acidic. The silky meatiness of the mollusc as it slid down my throat was pure pleasure. You can taste marine saltiness which serve only to emphasise the character of the oyster in this dish.

APPETIZERS
 
For Him ~ Brittany Blue

The firm and succulent poached lobster and crab was a perfect match, chewiness surrounded this tasty ocean delight which it actually goes well with Asian law of the crunchy wood ear. Different taste and textures with contrasting flavour, truly a burst of lively Asian flavours in the dish with the fragrant ginger flower added in.

 For Her ~ Stone Crab

A Thai-infused appetizer made "Kerabu-style". Combination of fresh stone crab ceviche, stone crab floss and pickled cucumber to a a mixed of spicy with sourish appetizer, tossed in a tangy dressing. A refreshing start to stir up ones appetite just before the main meal.


SOUP
Roasted cauliflower seasoned with Sriracha

 
For Him  ~ Cauliflower & Atari Miso

A complete dish out of a cruciferous vegetable ~ the Cauliflower. Chef Eugene did a veloute with cauliflower and added some atari miso to give it a spicier take on flavour. Served with roasted cauliflower seasoned with sriracha (Thai hot chilli sauce), it aims to gives a different taste and textures again in his dishes. 

 
For Her ~ Roasted Butternut Squash

Ladies gets the sweetness with this Roasted butternut squash soup served with butternut brulee. On the contrary to the rest of the diners which very much prefer the "gentlemen menu - soup", I had to say that I loves this mildly-flavoured broth, creamy and smooth soup to bits.

STARTER
 For Him ~ Muscovy Duck Spring Roll

An interesting dish of Muscovy Duck Spring Roll, which is French duck meat confit wrapped in paper thin Vietnamese rice paper before being fried till crispy. Well-marinated duck meat with a crisp skin and  moist tender meat, very appetising as it gives lovely flavours and contrasting textures with every mouthful. 


Served with sauteed Shimeji mushrooms and shishito peppers (Japanese green chillies) with garlic resting on a bed of butternut squash puree for added flavour. Chef Eugene further explains that he managed to sourced the  Muscovy Duck which is a free range duck, larger in size with less fat from a local farm in Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur.


 
For Her ~ Free Range Chicken Pie

Known for his flair in cooking and creative use of ingredients, Chef Eugene takes to task in creating a unique dish for the ladies ~ De-constructed Chicken Pie. Moving away from norm, he serves a roulade of chicken and chestnut entwined with katafi  (very fine vermicelli-like pastry) for the crunch. The long yellow strips topping the chicken pie is cured egg yolks made from 64% C - frozen "bombe" to get to this texture. Well-executed dish for the lady of the night! 

INTERMEZZO
For Him & Her ~ Sorbet Of The Day

Refreshing and delightful sorbet of green apple mixed with soy bean, served with strawberry to cleanse your palate before moving on to the mains.


MAINS ~ SEDUCTION

Bet you are seduce by Tanzini's Tsarskaya amuse bouche, stone crab ceviche appetizer, delicious Muscovy duck starter together with fruity sorbet of the day.  A terrific name for the mains ~ Seduction, couples can choose from the melt-in-the-mouth Wagyu Beef Ribs or the fresh from farm ~ Barramundi, one of Tanzini's farm to table dish.  

Wagyu Beef Ribs

Star of the night for me was the hearty Wagyu Beef Ribs that was a melt-in-the-mouth experience that I credit to the Australia-imported meat. Fork-tender and extremely flavourful, the perfect flavour of the beef ribs was cooked Goulash style with cumin, tomato paste and a little paprika for that hint of spiciness for a total of 72 hours. Perfect match with the sides of  spring onions mash potatoes as it was both appetising and tasty.

 Barramundi

For a healthier alternative, you can choose to have Barramundi for your mains. Fish lovers will especially enjoy the fresh locally bred barramundi harvested from their own G-Farm to advocate Tanzini's tagline of "From farm to table" concept. Chef Eugene explained that he's moving towards serving sustainable seafood and ocean friendly product to lessen the impact on our oceans by choosing the type of seafood wisely in his menu.  

Chef Eugene injected a little bit of Nyonya influences, by incorporating the Otak-otak in this dish. An unconventional pairing was what Chef Eugene wanted to explore and to play around with, using seasonal ingredients, with local flavours, but with a refined method of preparation.  

End results was a sweet. mild taste and delicate texture dish, making it a perfect, ocean-friendly substitute too ~ went well with San Marzano Coulis (Italian tomatoes) and some seasonal vegetables.


SWEET ENDING
 
For Him & Her ~ Chocolate & Butter

Dessert was simply tempting with - aptly named Chocolate & Butter - offered a good end to our meal. The sugar-free chocolate mousse was rich and smooth, matched delightfully with the unique brown butter ice cream. Wonderfully creamy and totally indulgent sheer bliss to all chocolate lovers. Perfect for a light ending to our gourmet Valentine's Day menu dining at Tanzini !
