After touring around the city, then all of us were pretty exhausted by the morning flew over, Press Conference and Official Launch of SANYO Xacti, mini tour of the Resort World and just head into the restaurant. When we reach the restaurant and were told by the rest of the friends, that the restaurant was actually located quite near Universal Studio and we walk one big round towards this place but it was a good window tour. . .

Here we are, in Chinoiz Restaurant that serve Fine Chinese Food.

Chinois

Chinois (2)

Love the interior with a bit of modern Oriental style, lit with dim light and the place is very comfortable.

That I do not mind to sit there and chat all night long~

Chinois (3)

Chinois (4)

The selection of alcohol prepare for all the guest.

Chinois (6)

with French wine is one of the selection for the night.

Chinois (7)

We were there early, and we manage to take a lot of pictures with the models and some of the products.

Chinois (8)

The picture printing were sponsor by Sanyo and it was printed on the spot.

Chinois (9)

Then not long after that, they move us to a VIP room, the whole room just for us, Malaysian Media.

Chinois (10)

and I look at the menu, I got all excited bymyself, and I told Witch, she got excited too as we did not expect the food list would be so grand.

Chinois (19)

With the price tag on the menu, it certainly is reasonable if do not the conversion rate.

Chinois (20)

Chinois (11)

While we were happily chatting, then came a waitress ask us what drinks we would like to have and I ask her back, then she said, fruit juice (many types of juices including custom made order), red/white wine, Champaign, beer (Tiger, Heinaken, Tsing Tao) and we were like errrr errrrr..juices first.. all still very pai seh including me.

When the first guy start to order alcohol, then here comes the order for it.

Chinois (12)

We tried every selection of it. We love the wine as it was smooth and of course the best selection of all night was Red and champaign.

Chinois (13)

This is my selection.

Chinois (14)

Not long after the drinks, first dish of the night arrive with ‘Chilled Momotaro Tomato Salad topped with Sake marinated Confit of Lobster’. I just do not know how to say or I would say it was one of a perfect appetizer to start of with. Simple taste that preserves the fresh sweet taste of the lobster and tomato is to add in some sweet sour taste onto it, Perfect!

Chinois (15)

‘Double-boiled Shark’s fin with Sea Treasures served in Coconut’, when we saw this serving, we were like wahhh!!!! And the smell of the soup taste travels and fill into the room, till the moment it was place down, some of them even ready with spoon and attack , with just a slice of bacon on top of the soup was already unique yet inside a coconut shell. . .

Chinois (16)

To our surprise, we scoop up quite huge abalone in it and it taste awesome! Sweet, juicy and very aromatic with the soup taste.

Chinois (17)

then we also found a slab of shark fin, which was told it is a good quality, we never care, we just enjoy our soup, it was sweet, aromatic with seafood sweet taste and the coconut flavour did not overpower the rest of the taste. It was one of the best soup I have drank so far.

Chinois (18)

‘Crisp-fried Fillet of Marble Goby served with Mixed Green salad and Mint leaves’
As it looks pretty simple to me in such a long plate, but it proves me wrong. Fried crispy on the outer layer and the fillet in there is soft, by dipping with the sauce given, it just taste excellent!

Chinois (21)

‘Pan-seared Australian Wagyu beef with Foie Gras’
Pan grill to my liking with medium that cut it with sharp knife ooze out the juice and blood of it, dipping with the sauce on the plate, it taste good and the foie gras was grilled perfect too, that preserve the outer layer a bit cook and inside is soft and juicy. Great main course as it goes very well with the red wine.

Chinois (22)

‘Braised Mee Sua in Noble Tan Fu Sauce served with Freshly-peeled Crab Claw’

Chinois (23)

Fresh juicy solid crab meat that had cook well in it.

Chinois (24)

Mee sua that just cook in the right condition which is not too soft yet still soak the soup base of it while pulling up.

Chinois (25)

‘Gratin of Assorted Berries and Fruits in Passion Fruit Sabayon’ would be perfect for girls as all the berries are sour in taste with cream top on it, to me its not bad as I take it to cool down my alcohol level.

 
Then Nick Manage to pass us a unit of Xacti and Witch took her SD card to film it, and surprise us that the quality is good.

Chinois (28)

After we finish our dinner and alcohol keep pouring in, some that did not talk so much began to talk a lot, and suddenly bang…the 2 models came in and thought of trying to pose something different, James Bond in Soh Loook. 😀

Chinois (27)

Then of course in this kind of event, a group picture must not miss with bloggers, Magazine Media, Stuff, Click, Velocity, NST and some others.
