Signature at The Roof, First Avenue Bandar Utama

 

Signature at The Roof, First Avenue Bandar Utama is one of the more popular spots for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner in Petaling Jaya. This year, the restaurant will be having a 3-course meal priced at RM350++ per couple, available on 13th & 14th February 2018. The restaurant has two (2) seating slots per night which is at 6.00PM and 9.00PM. Seats are limited and will be on first come first served basis. Kindly note that 100% payment is required to confirm your booking.

 

Start off you meal with some of Signature’s cocktails (not part of the set).

Or their famous Watermelon Slush which will surely set the mood for the evening. (Also not part of the set.)

 

Starter (buffet style)

Garden Salad, Alaskan crab meat with asparagus, Beetroot Chicken salad, Green apple with Celery and walnut, Cold cuts platter which includes Beef salami, smoked duck breast, turkey ham, and of course – Signature’s famous Mushroom soup with truffle oil.

The starter course is a buffet which means that you can help yourself to as much as you want! Great for big eaters!

 

Mains – Choose 2 main courses (per couple) of your choice:

Char grill lamb loin with balsamic bell pepper and mango yogurt

Make sure you order your meat to be cooked nothing above medium. In fact, I’d recommend it be cooked medium rare for tender and juicy pieces of lamb! This was my favourite main as it was flavourful and incorporated a good mix of textures and flavours!

 

Soft shell prawns with squid ink pasta

The pasta was really flavourful… full of spice and garlic which on any other day would be wonderful! However, if you plan to get cosy with your partner after dinner, I would suggest that you order a different main (garlic breath can really ruin a night…).

 

Chicken roulade with wasabi crust and romesco sauce served with truffle mash

A simple dish that was well executed! The chicken remained tender and this main was substantial enough thanks to the truffle mashed potatoes.

 

Pan fried grouper with Alaskan crab meat parcel served with romesco and creamy seafood sauce

The Alaskan crab meat was in the little parcel to the right and was pretty heavenly!

 

Dessert platter (shared platter)

Chocolate truffle, lavender cheese tart, lychee and rose cake

A nice and sweet end to the meal. I really liked the chocolate truffles (then again I pretty much love anything with lots of dark chocolate).

 

As Signature at The Roof is one of the most popular romantic dining spots in Petaling Jaya, I’d suggest that you book early to avoid disappointment.

For reservations, call 0386053388 or book online at https://www.tableapp.com/partner/signature-theroof?date=2018-02-13&size=2

Macallan Rare Cask – An Exquisite Whisky for Your Man

  

If your man appreciates a quality single malt whisky, why not get him one that will get him thinking of you with each sip of the exquisite golden liquid. The Macallan Rare Cask is a 43% ABV whisky, crafted to showcase complexity and depth, and is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks, 16 different types, ever identified by the Master Whisky Maker.

Far less than 1% of those casks maturing at the distillery have been identified as fitting to bestow the Rare Cask name. With rarity at its core, this is a whisky crafted from casks so rare they will never again be used in any Macallan whisky. Combining Spanish and American sherry seasoned oak casks, a high proportion of them first fill, gives rise to an exquisite whisky with a splendidly rich hue, and an unmistakably woody whisky. Soft notes of opulent vanilla and raisin on the nose, give way to apple, lemon, and orange. Balanced by a spicy quartet of root ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Oak resonates, timeless, polished and rich. Vanilla and chocolate lead the finale along with a light citrus zest. The finish is full, warming and woody.
