Weekend Food Tripping at: Crowne Plaza for a Wedding Reception

I attended a wedding reception last night at the Crowne Plaza Grand Ballroom.  I seldom blog about food I've tasted inside the hotel but I guess, this is the only food tripping I've done for this weekend that's different.  I've been eating the same food and restaurant over and over again!  First of all, I want to congratulate a highschool classmate Shiela for the wonderful wedding!  I wish her blissful marriage!

I've attended a couple of functions inside the Crowne Plaza and dinner could be either Lauriat style (Usually Chinese dishes) or Set Menu.  Tonight, it was a nice set menu and shall I add I always love their freshly baked rolls?  With Lurpack butter, the best!

Young Pumpkin Soup with Walnut
and Pecan Nut Royal Flan

The pumpskin soup is not strong in taste, just the right milky taste inside the mouth!  The Walnut and Pecan Nut Royal Flan looks a bit weird at first but its actually nice!

Salmon Tartar with Pommery Mustard
with Carpaccio of Sea Scallop
and Chive Sour Cream Dressing

The name itself is a mouthful!  Love the Scallop and Salmon!  I can literally taste the freshness!

Braised fish with Italian Sauce 
and Julliene Vegetables

The Italian sauce tastes really different.  The shredded vegetables gave a nice texture inside the mouth!

Chicken Saltimboca with Mashed Potatoes 
and Vegetable Batonette in Mushroom Sauce

Bacon wrapped vegetables, all went to my hubby's plate!  Not a bacon eater!  Love the mashed potatoes!  The chicken tastes ok, not outstanding but just right to fill in hungry tummy!  At this stage, I'm already full so I did not finish this dish!  Sad to say!

Warm Velvet Chocolate Fondant
with Orange Marmalade and Chocolate Ice Cream

A nice, unique dessert that I don't normally taste.  It's a combination of warm cake with ice cream mixed together inside your mouth brings a nice pleasure for the sense of taste!

My tummy was really full as I went straight to Preview's Best Dressed Ball!  Will report about it when I get the chance, for now, it's late, I'm full and I'm sleepy!  It's nice to be a pig for a day!!!

Before I end this post, a shout out to Sol from Digital Traincase for sending me a surprise gift!  It put a huge smile on my face as I was really in love with the shade of Orly Cotton Candy when I saw Jheng's post!  She read my comment and was sweet enough to send this to me as gift plus an additional super pretty pink lipstick from NYX named Acapulco!  My first time to try on NYX Black Label Lipstick!  Thanks Sol!!!

So many sales happening at SM Malls around the metro!  Enjoy shopping and take care of your valuable stuffs!  Have a lovely Sunday!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
