Senja @ The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

I had a beautiful and intimate birthday dinner on a quiet Wednesday night with my boyfriend. I enjoyed the ambiance and food more than I could imagine and plus points were given for its tranquility! The crowd was small – only a few tables were occupied on a calm weekday night and I would most certainly come back to try out more of their authentic Italian cuisine!

I would appreciate it if the bread was hotter- it was cold although warmed up in the fireplace oven! The sauces and olives were pretty good, fortunately.

My boyfriend and I both had the risotto. It was cooked just right and absorbed the cream very well. The duck breast was also seared perfectly- it was juicy and tender.

The tiramisu was as authentic as it could get. Although the ladyfingers were a tad too wet for my liking, the coffee and rum syrup soaked in it wasn’t too sweet and the mascarpone cheese was light and fluffy. Topped with the not too heavily sugared strawberry compote and dark chocolate on top, it was a wonderful dessert that filled us up for the night.

We wanted to try their pizzas and other antipasti dishes, but we were so stuffed with just the risotto and the tiramisu on its own. It’s definitely a place to visit for a romantic candle-lit authentic Italian dinner experience 🙂
