[Romantic Dining Spots]
This is the first time I’ve gone out of my normal areas to have a meal even though Putrajaya is not really considered very far out of the Klang Valley. Waited for Ying to return from the Moto GP before picking her up and heading over to Shangri-La Putrajaya to try out their contemporary Western restaurant – Azur.
Now Shangri-La Putrajaya is located in Precinct 1 near the Prime Minister’s office (ie. Perdana Putra) however I relied too much on Waze (which normally does an outstanding job of getting me to my destination) but for once it led me to some place in Serdang so do double-check the location before getting it to navigate.
Tomcat says – Azur at Shangri-La Putrajaya is off the beaten track which is sometimes where you want to bring your date rather than always at the same crowded places in Bangsar. The staff were very warm and attentive and service was impeccable which was a great plus point! There are food items which are different from other restaurants (fish soup, lobster salad and durian mousse!) while the classic favourites (smoked duck, cod fish) were cooked and presented very nicely. The beautiful and tasteful interior provided a nice ambience and we can’t wait to try a candlelit dinner on the outside terrace.
It’s not very far from KL/ PJ (take the LDP) but make sure you check your Waze properly when setting the route. I suggest going slightly earlier in the evening so that you can take in the view from the hilltop as it overlooks Putrajaya.
