Valentine’s Menu at Senja, Saujana Hotel, Malaysia

Intimate candle lit tables overlooking the lake, red rose stems and rustic home made Italian cuisine set the scene for a romantic Valentine’s dinner at Senja Italian Restaurant at the Saujana Hotel.

This Valentine’s Day, Sicilian Chef, Filippo Giunta, of Senja has developed a four course menu designed to elevate the senses and remind you how the simple things in life are what really matters - good wine, great food and the company of your loved one. 

Italians have a worldwide reputation for their passionate displays of affection and declarations of love. Chef Filippo is no different and his ardour for, and devotion to, preparing superb fare is evident in every dish. From the homemade bread and whipped butter beginning, to the decadently rich pudding finish, every detail is given obvious care and attention.

The Valentine’s menu begins with an amuse bouche of Oyster with Fennel Confit, Cucumber and Chives Vinaigrette. The distinct flavours of oyster and fennel balance each other, while the soft hints of cucumber and chives plash the roof of your mouth.

An appetizer, Salad of Marinated Prawn and Scallop follows. Brightened with a Seasonal Mango Carpaccio and Sherry Vinegar Reduction, it’s recommended to take a bite of each together to experience the all-enveloping goodness of sweet, savoury and sour.

Bridging the appetizer to the main, the seafood theme continues with Salmon Ravioli on a Bed of Tomato and Basil with Lobster Consommé. Table service pours drops of cream on the al dente pasta adding smoothness and richness to the plate.

Land or sea is the choice for the main. Poached Fillet of Sea Bass with Asparagus and Sweet Red Pepper Sauce provides more red for romance and the Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb with Glazed Baby Shallots, Baby Carrots and a Thyme Reduction is tender enough to melt any man’s heart.

Dessert is a must for Valentine’s Day and it better be chocolate. The chef’s own creation, Chocolate Pudding with Homemade Avocado and Strawberry Ice Cream finishes the meal but not the evening…

  1. Ooo...nice, real romantic! You're going there for Valentine? Never liked the name of the place - sounds like some Malay or Indon restaurant.

    1. I wish the place was a little closer to my house. I love eating outdoors and I'd visit much more frequently if I had the chance.
