If you’re looking for a romantic rendezvous interlude, look no further than Tamarind Springs. Well known for its lush greenery and gorgeous romantic dinner settings; couples will certainly be charmed by it.
Recently, Tamarind Springs introduced its latest dining concept The Terrance. Located within the compound, The Terrance offers the experience of steamboat dining. The contemporary dining area with a touch of rustic design, is certainly a good place for any gathering.
This is the first time I’m having steamboat in such a romantic setting. At The Terrace, Tamarind Springs, there are 4 types of soup base crafted by Executive Chef Somkuhan Wandee. Select from their signature soup Namya Kaknomjin, Tom Yam, Tom Kah and Clear Chicken Soup. We were recommended to try Namya Kaknomjin which tasted like Siam Laksa except it’s less sourish.
What’s unique is the way the soup is cooked by using Charcoal. This technique brings out the natural aroma of the soup. It also gives me the feeling that I’m camping in the woods 😀
There’s a variety of seafood available here such as Red Snapper Fillet Grouper Fillet, Tiger Prawns, Squids, Mussels, Soft Shell Crabs and Scallops; with price ranging from RM15 onwards. Apart from seafood, there’s also a great selection of meaty goodness like Marinated Chicken Fillet , Wagyu Striploin Marbling and Short Loin too.
If steamboat it’s not your liking, how about having BBQ instead. There are experts on standby to assist us thus we can keep ourselves comfy. A selection of grilled fish from Salmon Fillet, Seabass, Snappers, Pomfret, Sabah Mackerel, and many more. Of course, not to forget the fresh seafood and well marinated meats such as the squids, prawns, flower crabs, chicken, lamb, and beef sirloin. Just a note, be patient while waiting for BBQ meals as it takes roughly 20-30 minutes for it to be served.
Apart from steamboat and BBQ, we can also opt for ala-carte menu. One of the first ala-carte menu we ordered is the Seafood Salad with fresh steamed squids and prawns served with shredded green papaya salad, dried shrimps and toasted peanuts. The taste is certainly appetising for the dressing used was lime juice and palm sugar.
Other ala-carte dishes we ordered includes in-house speciality like fried pandan chicken, squid with salted egg yolk and many more.
All meals must end with desserts and we’re spoilt for choice here. We went kinda crazy and ordered a few of the speciality such as Chendol & Sago in Young Coconut served with Vanilla Ice Cream and glazed with Gula Melaka , Tiramisu with Mascarpone Cheese and LadyFinger Biscuit and Ricotta Cheesecake. My favourite definitely goes to the Tiramisu.
The Terrance, Tamarind Springs is definitely the place to visit for great quality food with gorgeous scenery to boot.
