An ideal Western dining experience
THANKGIVING, often perceived as part of American and Canadian culture, has made its way into various cultures of the world due to the nature of the celebration — a time for togetherness and to reflect on one’s achievements throughout the year.
For those counting their blessings, the good place to gather and celebrate Thanksgiving is The Ship. It is ideal for a full Western dining experience that includes a three- or four-course meal. For appetisers, entrees and desserts, the menu at The Ship will leave you wanting more.
Favourite appetisers at The Ship include the oysters Rockefeller baked with butter, spinach and finely chopped chicken bacon. Also a favourite is the luscious Escargots Bourguinonne, which features French snails baked in Chablis garlic sauce.
For those who like to start with a hot soup, a variety of in-house fresh soups are available.
The favourites are rich and creamy US seafood chowder or aromatic Frenchbaked onion soup made with beef stock and a liberal amount of sliced fresh onions to give the soup a bite and an almost broth-like consistency.
While The Ship also serves a variety of Western cuisine that includes poultry and seafood, taking centre stage is the range of steaks.
The different prime cuts of beef, rib eye, sirloin, T-Bone and fillet Mignon are all cooked to just the degree you like and served as it is or with a selection of sauces.
For those who fancy poultry, treat your taste buds to the delightful flavours of The Ship’s classic offerings, such as Chicken Maryland, Russian Chicken and Chicken au Chambertin.
Befitting its namesake as a vessel that traverses the seas and oceans of the world, seafood lovers can look forward to a plethora of fresh sea harvests starting with succulent grilled lobsters or lobster thermidor; grilled air-flown salmon steaks; sizzling garlic premium tiger prawns and seafood au gratin.
End that special dinner with tempting desserts such as The Ship’s signature ice cream cakes and ice cream sundaes. Be sure to make your finale a cup of specialty coffee sipped while you continue to stay and enjoy the enchanting charisma that is The Ship.
In conjunction with the holiday season, The Ship’s tantalising roast turkey is ready for bookings throughout December.
Carefully prepared to seal in its natural goodness, traditional stuffing and trimmings are also added to boost its natural flavour. Available for a limited time only, the turkey is priced at RM298+ per bird.
