Venue: Uncle Chilli's Bar, Hilton Hotel, Petaling Jaya
Occasion: Food review
Ever thought of celebrating the joy of Christmas over a lavish meal with family & friends at a bar cum restaurant? More often than not, we'll pop by the usual restaurants at shopping malls for a Christmas meal with friends. Uncle Chilli's Bar at Hilton Hotel, Petaling Jaya calls out to all food & music lovers to celebrate this year's Christmas Eve in a different note!
It's not my 1st time at Uncle Chilli's but I was pleasantly surprised to taste their Christmas Eve spread this time around. The last time I was here was for an after-dinner drinks night with some other bloggers. Expect a cosy, retro-designed place with relatively quiet ambiance before 9:00p.m. & some good live band music from 9:00p.m. onwards.
This Christmas Eve, the kitchen team at Uncle Chilli's has tailored an exquisite Christmas Eve 4-Course Set Dinner priced at RM120.00++/person (inclusive a glass of complimentary champagne). You'll get to taste the passion of the team at Uncle Chilli's as they bring you on a delicious "journey" through each course of the meal as you dine in "the place where 'U' belong".
I didn't take the champagne, but had their mocktails instead. According to those who had the champagne, it was quite easy on the palate & good enough to keep one satisfied.
Green Sparkling Mocktail
The green sparkling mocktail has mint leaves, Fruitade, Sprite, lemon juice/wedges, & sago balls. It's quite like a fruit punch, but is more fizzy since there's Fruitade and Sprite in the drink. I would have much prefer if the mint leaves were crushed to give it a fresh, minty taste rather than just placing it in for some tinge of fragrance. There's also a red sparkling mocktail, but strangely, I didn't have any photos of it! Weird...in any case, the red sparkling mocktail consists of strawberry purée, Sprite, soda water, grenadine syrup, & sago balls as well. Oh ya, the sago balls tastes strange...not cooked properly/over-cooked :S It was "floury"!
Talk about feeling full in a fine dining course - it's almost impossible, but here at Uncle Chilli's, you can look forward to a satisfying fancy meal at an affordable price for the quality that you get!
We also had the opportunity to sample some of Uncle Chilli's best seller mocktails:
- Ground ginger, ginger ale, whipping cream, grenadine syrup, & strawberry purée -
If you're a fan of ginger & some "spicy" like drink, this would do great for you.
I would think that RM120.00++/person sounds like a really expensive meal, but at a hotel environment with such worthy-of-compliment food & awesome presentation, it would be worth your every penny :) For something different this Christmas Eve, why not give Uncle Chilli's a try? Do make a reservation to avoid disappointment!
