Senja Italian Restaurant @ The Saujana Kuala Lumpur

With Christmas and New Year around the corner, it's the perfect month to indulge in good food and great company. My choice of the perfect dining place is Senja Italian Restaurant at The Saujana Golf and Country Resort. Somewhere outside the hub of the city with perfect dining experience is more awesome than words can describe!

Location of the evening:
Senja Italian Restaurant,
Hyatt Saujana Hotel,
Section U2,
40150 Shah Alam, 
Selangor Darul Ehsan.

Outside the restaurant is a swimming pool with a few spots for the visitors to relax themselves. 

Sitting on the expansive veranda at Senja, you get the feeling of almost floating on water. The al fresco dining here is top notch. Surrounded by a lake bordering the golf course of the Saujana Hotel, Senja’s newly refurbished interior perfectly suits its flourishing surroundings.

Complementing it further is a live three-piece band that serenades diners as scrumptious rustic Italian creations are ferried out of the kitchen. A fine selection of cigars as well as digestives, stylishly rolled out on a trolley is available for your post-meal relaxation.

Starter of the meal: 
#1 Pan-seared Tuna or Smoked Salmon 
The salmon tastes fresh as if I'm dining in a Japanese restaurant, but it's a little too salty to my preference.

The spoon of salmon slices is topped with my fave fish roes.

 #2 Gamberi al Pomodoro Piccante, Bruschetta
(Prawns, Tomato Chilli Sauce and Olive Oil Bruschetta)

Topped with parsley, the fragrance of the bruschetta makes a good combination with the fresh prawns.

#3 Mozzarella alla Caprese (Vegetarian)
(Classic Caprese Salad)

The fresh mozzarella infused with flavors of olive oil and basil turns the plate of salad into a really good one!

#4 Another salad is served here, with lesser spices and flavors used.

#5 Italian Seafood Salad
The squid rings and prawns are stir-fried to bring out its taste of freshness. 
Lemon slices are added if you favour a more interesting blend of taste for this seafood dish.

#6 Organic Vegetables Antipasto (Vegetarian)
It's an appetizer typically consisting of olives, capsicums, cheeses, and other vegetables.

#7 Chicken Breast with Mushroom Cream Sauce 
Initially I've mistaken this as a dish of chicken slices baked with cheese.
To my surprise, the mushroom cream tastes good with the meat although cheese is not added here.

#8 Homemade Bread Rolls
The buns look healthy and non-fattening.

#9 Baked Sea Bass with Onions and Tomato
If you love onions, you'd definitely enjoy this dish!

#10 Vegetarian Lasagna (Vegetarian)
This baked Italian dish consisting of flat pasta and layered with vegetables, cheese, and tomato sauce 
is definitely healthy and suitable for the non-meat eaters.

#11 Christmas-themed Cheese Cake
I'd love this one although the cheese is not as soft as I thought.

#12 Mixed Fruit Cuts

#13 Pudding Moist Chocolate Cake
This tastes great but the decoration attracts me more.

#14 Tiramisu dello Chef Giovanni 
(Chef Giovanni’s Tiramisu)

The meal is completed with a must-have Italian national dessert--- Tiramisu.
 The exquisite flavours from the mascarpone cheese and coffee is definitely appetizing!

Italian Christmas Bigne with Chantilly Cream

Bigne is a French puffed pastry made from deep-fried pate a choux dough. 
Filled with custard, the finished pastry puffs are coated in sugar and nuts.

My first bite on this bigne gives me a soft, sweet texture of the pastry. 
As the sugar coating melts in my mouth, the taste of the custard filling emerges. 

It's the best Italian pastry I've ever tried!


Cheers with Chef Giovanni Ricci from San Benedetto del Tronto. 
Enjoy the scenic view of the lake with your loved ones and friends,
 along with the authentic homespun Italian cuisine prepared by 
this Italian culinary master during the festive season!
