It's all too easy to take mothers for granted. Mother's Day is coming up this weekend, presenting all of us with the perfect opportunity to let our mother's know how thankful we are for their love and sacrifices throughout the years.
Every mum, including me, loves being pampered and showered with love, especially on Mother's Day. This year, you can beat the crowd and treat your mum to a delicious 3-course dinner at Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur on Mother's Day Eve.
Our meal got off to a delightful start, with a trio of appetizers - featuring scallop, jumbo shrimp and arancini. The scallop was obviously my favorite, pan seared and served with honey Dijon and creamy avocado. The Jumbo shrimp was light and fresh, served with Japanese cucumber and chilli lime mayonnaise, redolent of one of my favorite appetizers, prawn cocktail. The risotto ball aka arancini was the most Italian element on the plate - it was stuffed with beef bolognese and was wonderfully warm and crisp. Loved the plating too - so vibrant, made extra gorgeous with edible flowers.
I was thrilled to see Wagyu Oyster Blade on the menu, it is one of my favorite cuts of steak. For their Mother's Day Eve menu, the chefs at Prego have specially selected a cut with a marbling score 6. Both presentation and execution was faultless - the steak was perfectly cooked to a medium doneness with a lovely char. The steak is accompanied with zucchini flower stuffed with truffle mash potato, as well as locally sourced garden baby vegetables and natural beef jus. Amazing flavours, I loved this dish.
End the meal with a divine Grandmother's baked chocolate tart served with fresh berries and homemade vanilla bean ice cream. This dessert was nicely balanced, not too sweet; chocolate and ice cream are a winning combination to complete this celebratory dinner.
Whatever you decide to do to celebrate Mother's Day this year, don't forget to give your mum a big hug.
