MHB Christmas Party, Samplings On The Fourteenth

Located at the East Tower on the 14th floor of Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Samplings On The Fourteenth Restaurant boasts a large collection of vintage wines and offers the finest Western cuisine that ignites your taste buds. Since opening its doors in 2011, Samplings On The Fourteenth Restaurant has built a steadfast name as one of the most distinguished fine-dining restaurants in the local dining scene. The restaurant is well-known amongst discerning food lovers in Kuala Lumpur for its excellent service standards, innovative menu, comfortable ambience, as well as unique culinary experience.

It wasn’t the first time I visited Samplings On The Fourteenth, although the last few times they’ve always had guest chef for the events. This time, the MHB had a Christmas Dinner there, presented by Calvin Klein and supported by Kronenbourg. A classy affair it was with specially crafted Christmas menu for us to feast on.

The Amuse Bouche was a Tortelini filled with Spinach and Ricotta, dressed with a prawn bisque. Lovely enough to whet our appetite for the rest of the evening.

Our starter was Pan-Seared Scallop served Avocado Tian with Mango-Tomato Salsa and few other vegetables including an earthy baby beetroot. The simplicity of the flavours was simply delightful, harmony of sweet, tang and earth and brine.

There was a Soup course too, and I must say the Cream of Asparagus was executed well. Mushroom Crostini on the side was a little too garlicky for my liking, thus an overwhelming pairing for the soup.

We had a choice of Fish, Chicken and Turkey for Main Course and no prize guessing which one I went for. Grilled Cod Fish with Truffle Risotto and Saffron, Fennel Coulis. Pretty much all my favourite elements coming together. The buttery soft fish with a bit of crispy skin, the creamy aromatic risotto, topped with the distinct aroma of saffron. Even the side grilled vegetables were delicious. A++!

Since I didn’t go for the Turkey, the Xmas pudding was the most festive dish for me. Filled with mixed fruit and spices, this definitely brought a taste of Christmas to the party. It’s also a nice touch with the berry coulis and vanilla sauce.

As the party was supported by Calvin Klein jewellery, I had a few pieces of them on while dining:

Definitely added to the classy vibe.
