E & O Hotel has always been the one of top hotels in Penang for its fine-dining in an exquisite setting. It used to be served at 1885 Restaurant. However, due to ongoing renovation works at the hotel, the dinner has been moved to Pool Side @ Planters Lounge instead.
Nevertheless, this gives diners a total different perspective in enjoying fine-dining dinner by the poolside as diners get to enjoy a romantic dinner with a breath-taking view of the Andaman Sea.
The poolside dinner menu:
Spiced Crab Cake
Oven Roasted Vine Cherry Scented With Oil
Butternut Squash Veloute
Flavored With Lemongrass, Green Seed Oil, poached farm Egg
Pan Seared Salmon Loin
Tomato salsa, Arugula Leave, Shellfish Oil and Garden greens
Grain Fed Beef Fillet Mignon
Enoki Tempura, Fondant Potato, Ginger Soy Glaze
Banana Passion Fruits Millefeuille
Chocolate Linzer Biscuit, Roasted Banana,
Passion Fruit Scented Jelly & Cream
Freshly Brewed Coffee or Selection of Gourmet Tea
The taste of the pan-seared salmon was so fresh and very nice in fragrance. With just a simple salt and pepper marination, this is the best way to bring out the freshness taste of the salmon. The taste of the salsa sauce was also very appetizing.
The Grain Fed Beef Fillet Mignon will be grilled according to your required tenderness. For mine, it was medium-rare. This dish was served together with Enoki Tempura and Fondant Potato. The pairing sauce was Ginger Soy Glaze which tasted different from the usual brown sauce as it had some ginger and garlic flavors. This is my favourite dish.
This dinner by the pool is priced at RM230.85 per person and it is limited to 10 couples per day only. This is a great place to hang out with your partner as it has a fantastic sea view. The taste of the food here has always been top-notch and it never disappoint me.
