Inspired by palatial glass houses where orange and citrus trees thrive even in extreme weather, L’orangerie is a light-drenched haven with towering French picture windows that bring glorious vistas of Mother Nature into its dining space — a dazzling panorama of blue skies, the sparkling Andaman Sea and lush rainforests.
Commence your dinner on a high note with the seafood otak-otak and lobster bisque, both of which are deliciously on point. Redolent with enticing scents and nuances of lemongrass, kaffir lime and complex spices, the sweet fish meat is flaky amidst the firm yet custard-soft slab of otak- otak. The bisque’s light creaminess and salubrious umami-rich flavour is a clear winner.
Smothered with melted cheese, the St Regis burger features a hefty beef patty in between two halves of a burger bun lined with fresh lettuce, sliced tomato and pickled gherkins, onion rings and crisp beef bacon strips.
The meal’s show- stealer is the boneless grilled fillet of spice-dusted ikan bakar. Served with pumpkin mash, tender mushroom and a side serving of fresh salad, the fish will leave you raving over its delicate sweetness.
Compelling desserts to wrap up the meal comprise a sublime, airy- light orange soufflé with jackfruit sorbet and a wickedly decadent chocolate mille feuille. The delightful treats are light enough to ensure guests leave feeling happily guilt-free after wallowing in such luxurious indulgences.
