But hey, Christmas is coming! And if you're looking for a venue to hold that once-a-year Christmas family dinner or business talk over Christmas food, this offer is still valid.
Anyway, I had the privilege to attend this small gathering of media for a food review at The Peak, Pullman Hotel. The whole idea of dining by candlelight does make a girl feel a little romantic, most especially if you're on the 22nd Floor, overlooking the whole of Kuching City, with someone you cherish. :-) Nice feeling huh? and we're not even talking about the food yet!
The view at night is mesmerizing from The Peak, Pullman. Kuching is all bright lights beautiful after 7pm. How anyone could leave a city this breathtaking, for some other place away from home, is beyond me.
Anyway, the Christmas dinner was brisk, straightforward, and sweet. And I'm not just talking about the memory. Appetizers, desserts, main courses were all enticingly sugary I could easily develop a sweet tooth if I didn't have one already. I mean, look at this lovely candy confectionarised house, it's like a scene from the North Pole!
Somehow nobody warned me how sweet these colourful array of macaroons could be, that I put a bunch in my plate but didn't finish half of them. This could go well with sugarless tea, but then I'm more of a coffee person...
Marshmallow candies anyone? Get a bunch of these for giveaways during Christmas Day open house, not a bad idea, hey?
And, the traditional sugary butter muffins. Now this would be perfect with coffee.
And for the main course -- a beautifully roasted turkey! Now, if you don't already know, I don't exactly have a good experience with turkey meat. But this one were surprisingly pretty nice ... tender, moist, and not blanch at all, as I had initially thought. Served with black pepper sauce with sweet stuffings and garnish on the side, it was without a doubt, the one and only time I enjoyed eating a roast turkey. Talk about! The only problem with it was it was too small for the bunch of us! Ha ha ha.
I think I pretty much mixed the appetizers with the desserts, but no matter. They could serve as both. Like this sweet rolls er... logs. I stuffed a few pieces of these babies in one go. They were that irresitible.
The Christmast Eve and New Year's Eve Candlelight Dinner is priced at RM200++ per person. The view and the dining experience is expected to leave a lasting impression on you and your loved ones, that is, if you're as romantic as me. :-) There will also be unlimited serving of wines, chilled juices, sodas and hot beverage... although we weren't so lucky that night. Sigh...
