ZestPJ dot com and theQguides dot com just recently organized a bloggers food review at Pj Hilton.
Incase your wondering, ZestPJ is the hotel’s blog for its restaurants and bars, and theQguides is a beverage and food website portal.
How it Works.
1. Book online with this NEW! COOL! LATEST! QuickBook system. It’s fast, it’s free and they have got loads of great eateries joining our lineup of bookable
2. Receive a confirmation via email and SMS within four hours, by 11am the next day, or 30 minutes before your dining time, whichever is applicable
3. You earn free points towards your next free meal.
Anyway, the restaurants reviewed that night were,
2. Toh Yuen
3. Paya Serai
So, off we went with ‘Places and foods’ to Toh Yuen.
Wobbly, cartiligous and meaty, like an ample Botero model before liposuction, the beef was divine. I ate this is silent reverence, just happy to be shoving each succulent piece into my grateful, gaping, maw.
The signature Toufu. Fantastic texture and taste. Slightly crispy deep-fried outer, with soft toufu center tempered with some crunchy bits, of well.. crunchy bits of tiny things you put in toufu. (They cannot tell you what’s in the signature toufu. They COULD tell you.. but then, they’d have to kill you).
The night was progressing really rather well. Amidst stories from the lovely couple of ‘Places and Foods’ of skydiving and hot air balloons, we felt a warm glow of pleasure, blanket us, insidiously.. not unlike how dusk gives way to complete nightfall. Maybe it was the wine, but the company was excellent too.
Century egg with slices of abalone. My two most favourite food items teamed into one spectacular dish. Fred, the sous chef, is a genius. The only other coupled food that could top this would be sea urchin + foie gras.. TRULY!
The Broccoli, abalone, Sea-cucumber. Healthy yet tasty.
Snow peas from snowy twin peaks.. no? Well, I am assuming so, otherwise why call them snow peas right? But seriously they name them snow pea, because of their tendency to grow at the end of winter, just before the last spring freeze. These voluptuous, crunchy, little beauties can be covered with snow during the time, but still keep right on growing. (hence the name.. got it?)
If I had gone home and died that night, I would have died a happy person.
After dinner, the chill out session and post mortem begins at Uncle Chilies.
At the end of the night, we go home.. back to the places we came from. What a great night out.
The next day, as if to tell you that they take their job seriously, I found that theQguides had sent out an email thanking me for my participation the night before, and asking me for my feedback on the restaurant I had visited. This counts for the free points I can earn towards my next free meal.
Life is good!
