Birthday : Sage, The Gardens

Sage is one of the few shortlisted restaurants for my birthday this year (2011). Although I went once for my birthday as well last year, but I don’t mind to revisit at all as the foods and environment are great! In fact, I don’t mind to visit regularly like Baby Sumo did (Sage is like her canteen) but it’ll surely burn a hole in our Chris’s wallet if we do so! But RM100.00 net for a set of delightful 3 courses lunch is totally worth every penny. Besides, Sage has my favourite – truffle!

Hoho, Chris had a little surprise for me :) Apparently, they have this 4 courses truffle menu set. Price a little higher than the normal lunch set menu but the amount of the truffle served in each course is quite generous I would say. I was not aware until the 2nd course was served! Maybe I should have noticed during the 1st course as it was different from the normal menu but I was in a high mood I didn’t care much, plus I was away when Chris places order. Well I have say, it is very true that pig loves truffle! Say yay to truffle indulgence!

Soft and warm bread with basil dip.

Egg Mollet of Kampung Chicken on Toast with Shaving Black Truffle and Parmesan Cheese – a nice combination.

Carpaccio of Hokkaido Scallop with Winter Black Truffle and Organic Sakura Cress.

Warm Fedelini Pasta served with Shaving Winter Black Truffle and Parmesan Cheese – The aroma itself has won my heart. The pasta sauce went very well with the truffle. Absolutely yum!

Passion Fruit Sorbet – the perfect palate cleanser. Very refreshing, I want more!

Pan Roasted New Zealand Pink Snapper with Sauce Périgueux – what I love the most about this dish was the zucchini flower! :P

Roasted Marinated Black Cod Fish with Pane of Oyster and Cepe Mushroom Ragout

Before the dessert was served, I still jokingly said “Eh, is it the dessert will also have truffle..?” and I was right! I like the puff at the bottom but I have to say that the truffle in this dessert served more like a garnishing rather than complementing the taste.

Kahlua Bavarois with Coffee Jelly and Mascarpone Cream

Happy Birthday to Pig! *oink oink*

I know I’m rather late but Happy New Year 2012! ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ
