The Restaurant located at The Club, Saujana Resort offers contemporary Asian and classic European flavours under the helm of Chef de Cuisine, Ryan Arboleda. This newly joined chef brings with him more than 14 years of international culinary experience and is set to excite diners' palates with his creative menu.
To start, Chef Ryan served us two items from his newly launched tapas menu - the Thai duck larb "tacos" with mint and toasted rice dressing (RM18 for 3 pcs) and salmon tostada with green papaya, guacamole and chilli (RM25 for 2 pcs). I really enjoyed the tacos - the filling was juicy, flavorful, and fiery, awakening our tastebuds.
One of our favorite dishes of the evening was this "Angel Hair & Caviar" (RM55) which featured chilled angel hair pasta tossed in truffle essence and topped with seaweed caviar, chives, blue swimmer crab. We had a similar dish in a fine dining restaurant in Singapore (and enjoyed it a lot), so we were very excited to see this on the menu here. Turned out to be really fantastic, every mouthful was filled with the scent of truffles... ah loved it!
We also ordered this Roasted Diver Scallop (RM55) for the kids to share. The scallops were served with potato herb gnocchi with Sauce Nero, Pears, Mixed Organic Cress and Corn Emulsion. The scallops were nicely cooked, but the sauce was a tad too bitter for our liking.
Another dish which we enjoyed here was the Foie Gras “Tourchon” (RM65) with Brioche Loaf, Mustard Seed Chutney and Pain d’épices Crumble. Well executed, the foie gras terrine was smooth and luscious and wonderful paired with the apple jam and toasted brioche.
The butternut squash risotto with roasted pumpkin was creamy and smooth.
One of Chef Ryan's signature dishes here is the Duo of Lamb (RM85) featuring two pieces of oven-roasted lamb rack as well as pressed lamb shoulder “Lollipop” and zucchini and ratatouille “roulade”, and sweet pea puree. The lamb was nicely cooked to medium doneness.
For desserts, Chef Ryan served us the Madagascar Dark Chocolate Cremeux (RM33) with a blueberry gelato as well as the "Two of a Kind" (RM39) which featured dulce de leche dark chocolate tart with Meyer lemon brulee tart and anglaise. What a sinful end to our dinner.
