I’ve actually had the opportunity to attend a couple of events at The Roof in First Avenue Bandar Utama, in fact even before it was officially opened to the public.

If you’re not familiar with Signature by The Hill, which is The Roof’s main restaurant, here’s a quick run through of the place.

 

Signature by The Hill is divided into two (2) different sections namely the bar (pictured above) and the dining room

Now on to the MIGF menu.

Signature Clear Coconut Seafood Soup

This Vietnamese inspired seafood soup was pretty loaded with seafood including prawns, clams and squid, and with cili padi on the side to add that extra kick!

Signature Summer Salad with Softshell Crab

Next up was a salad served on a chopping board featuring soft shell crab and ebiko on argula, and a mango salad (in the glass). This one reminded me of my favourite salad at The Hill which was the soft shell crab salad which sadly is not on the regular menu at Signature at The Roof. The mango salad was quite refreshing while I loved the crispy soft shell crab.

Main course – you can choose from either the New York Striploin or the Crispy Baramundi.

You get to select the doneness of the beef and it is served around 90% there and you simply finish it off on the mini charcoal grill! Some DIY action certainly adds a little excitement to the meal.

Crispy Baramundi

Crispy Baramundi

Crispy Baramundi served oriental style with Vietnamese glass noodles. You can pour the sauce around the fish or simply have it on the side. The sourish glass noodles added some contrast in flavour and texture to this dish.

Signature Cendol

Full marks for presentation for this dish with the dried ice slowly melting at the bottom. A twist to a popular local favourite and it wasn’t too sweet or creamy! A good end to the meal.
