It’s so hot these days.. Anyway, right after my tuition, mum brought me to High Tide, Menara Taipan. Oh my goodness, it’s so sleek yet so fragile. It has French windows, big huge windows replacing the walls. As it was a hot afternoon, it was so bright, I felt like I was in another country. Do you know how costly it is? But of course, the best quality must come with the BEST prices. Before we move on to the pictures, I’m going to be honest, I am not a seafood fan, so I’m only going to briefly describe how it taste and what my mum thinks of it.
Fresh Dutch Sealand Flat Oysters (6 for RM128/ 12 for RM250)
For starters, we had oysters and fresh oysters isn’t my thing. Cooked ones either. But each time I see oysters, I’d take one just to try it out.. I must say, this is the best oyster I’ve ever eaten. (I still quite dislike it, but eating it the french way was quite alright with me)
They have mini buns for you instead of the ordinary big fat bread that lies in the middle of the table all times. They serve it to each customer, asking which bun you’d like. This one is a multigrain bun. 😀
Ocean Trout Tartar (RM58)
With basil leaves and wasabi sorbet in the middle.
The ocean trout was marinated with grain mustard, chopped dill, chives, olive oil and a drop of sesame.
Scottish Scallops Platter (RM88)
You have the Pan-fried scallop served on a creamy puree of Jerusalem artichoke on the left, then the carpaccio of scallops sliced thinly and placed over sweet beetroot cut in small cubes and lastly is a grilled scallop placed over sautéed oyster mushrooms and a mustard mouselline.
I liked the pan-fried scallop the best. The puree of Jerusalem artichoke compliments it so well! As for the carpaccio, my mum loves it so much. The last scallop was only yummy because of the juicy scallop meat.
The pan-fried fish is topped with a crust of herbs like tarragon, basil and parsley and served with cooked spinach leaves and a stunning oyster béarnaise. The spinach leaves is gorgeous, the oyster béarnaise, not quite.. For the fish, oh my goodness, it’s so beautiful. Firm and juicy.. It’s not like eating a codfish. It’s different. By the way, go google monkfish if you don’t know how it looks like. Remember the movie, Nemo? There was one time when Marley and Dory went deep down to the sea where no light is seen? There they were attacked by this ‘cute’ fish with a light bulb? YES! That one!
White Halibut (RM118)
Oven baked to a light golden hue, the fish is placed on a fragrant langoustine broth with root vegetables like potatoes and topped with lobster ravioli.
The ravioli is good, but we only had one.. /:
Seafood Platter served with 2 creamy dips (RM248 per person, minimum two persons)
I was being all classy, I didn’t want to use my hands.. In the end I did, 3 of them just stared at me while I do it. PRESSURE! Haha
Callebaut Chocolate (RM38)
Ghana Dark Chocolate Ganache
Served in a glass topped with a foamy honey chocolate espuma and a sprinkle of coffee granite. It’s another rich dessert but to die for.
White Chocolate Cremeux
with pistachio, cottage cheese and raspberry
Cottage Cheese Sorbet
It’s already starting to melt when I took the picture, you could imagine when it reach our table.. But it’s real good stuff, if only I could have more… (:
