Courtyard Garden - Ultimate Decadence

**I'm 1 year older today...Happy Birthday Me! To celebrate that I've decided to go with a post filled with decadent delights!**

I recently went to review a few of the new dishes at The Courtyard Garden in Damansara Heights and I must say that my meal represented food at it's finest.

Chef Alex Sow specialises in Western and Asian fusion. "I like to use a lot of Japanese ingredients with French cooking techniques, but overall I just like to blend different tastes and see how they work together" he expressed.

The freshness of the ingredients...and the exquisiteness of each dish was a dreamy experience. I will let the photos and the description of each dish do the talking because after the first bite I was truly at a loss for words....

Oriental Beancurd Salad - Homemade beancurd and century egg with a sesame shoyu dressing

Shabu-Shabu - Salmon sashimi infused with ginger ponzho shonyu vinaigrette topped with Avruga caviar

Roasted Smoked Duck with Foie Gras - Honey brandy pepper glazed smoked duck accompanied with pan fried foie gras and sautéed white cabbage with turkey bacon. Served with shallot red wine jus

Surf & Turf - A Charbroiled Wagyu Tenderloin with Jumbo King Prawn on bed of morel risotto and butter green asparagus. Served with spicy marsala and crustacean jus.

Touche Red Garoupa - Butter poached Red Garoupa fillet on a green pea mousseline and herb marinated cherry tomatoes. Served with butter orange, ginger and bell pepper sauce, topped with mizuno grape fruit salad.
