As we were on a family staycation at Le Meridien Putrajaya, the hotel specially arranged a Valentine's dinner for our family of four at Le Mei, the hotel's Chinese restaurant. Heart-shaped balloons placed around the restaurant sets the mood for a romantic dinner.
To start, we were served a duo of appetizers, Fresh scallop with exotic fruit, and Chicken rolls with a heart-shaped fried potato garnish. The scallops were large and plump and were topped with diced mango and plum in mayo dressing. The chicken roll, served hot was moist with crispy skin.
This was followed by the Pumpkin broth with crabmeat and enoki mushrooms. The pumpkin lends creaminess and a slight sweetness to the broth. Thick and rich too, we loved this!
Next to arrive is the Stewed Tiger Prawns in Extraordinary Sauce.... served together to form a heart, how cute! The prawns were huge and fresh.. so yummy!
The Deep fried spring chicken was nice and crispy, and was served with preserved cucumber.
Another one of the dishes we enjoyed was the Stewed E-fu noodles with crabmeat and shimeji. The noodles were smooth and flavorful ..... we found a couple of heart-shaped carrots, added to fit in with the Valentine's theme.
For dessert, we asked to change from chilled mango puree (which we already had for lunch) to the chilled mango pudding with passion fruit sauce. So good and yummy! There was also a chocolate heart-shaped cake, as well as heart-shaped fruit. After we finished our meal, they presented us with a rose stalk (for her) and a box of chocolates (for him). How thoughtful and lovely!
It was indeed a special Valentine's Day celebration for us this year :)
