EAT WELL, STAY FIT
One doesn’t have to be a health nut to eat well. Just take a leaf from Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur’s latest Fit For Life promotion; Executive Chef Donald J Pezar or fondly known as Chef DJ’s selection of wholesome dishes make healthy eating as easy as A-B-C.
When you dine at Eccucino from now until June 13, 2010, keep your eyes peeled for the chef’s Fit For Life specialities on the buffet. The dishes are prepared using healthier cooking methods such as steaming and grilling with less fat and oil, and accompanied by vegetables, fruits and mushrooms.
Although I don’t have a penchant for soup, the tangy Yucatan Chicken, Lime & Summer Squash broth is simply sublime with an additional sprinkle on chilli flakes in it. Then I made a beeline for the salad bar which proffered Sashimi and selected Sushi, Asparagus with Parmesan Shavings, Grilled Artichoke Hearts, Marinated Mushroom in Olive Oil, mini glasses of Gazpacho and assorted fresh greens with a variety of condiments and garnishes.
Hot favourites include the delectable Balinese-style Sate made from minced seafood, fish paste and chilli, Baked Garlic Naan with a deliciously thick Dhall Curry, Grilled Salmon with Citrus-Olive Salsa, Chicken Scaloppini with Mustard and Tarragon, Tandoori Chicken and Grilled Prawns with Tomato and Feta.
Just this once I steered away from the dessert section laden with sweet treats and feeling a tad angelic, opted for healthier alternatives such as freshly sliced watermelon, honey dew, dragonfruit, papaya and buah salak, our local snakeskin fruit instead.
By the way, in line with its Fit For Life promotion, Prince Hotel is collaborating with HSC Medical Centre, Celebrity Fitness, Mandara Spa, i-Dance Studio, Boot Camp and Fun Stompers to conduct various activities to get everyone moving, dancing, jumping, and joining the bandwagon for a fitter, healthier life!
