Oriental Passion St. Valentine's Day Dinner review

oriental passion

Oriental Passion is one of the new eating
establishments that have mushroomed up in Jalan Padungan in Kuching.
The distinctive red signage of the eatery features a square ancient
Chinese style stamp with a bright red background and an intense light
source illuminating the signage.

op interior

The incandescent lighting radiating from Oriental Passion is
inviting. There are curtains softly billowing at the entrance. Oriental
Passion also has al fresco seating arrangements and a main seating area
which follows the theme a little too literally by providing patrons
with stools instead of chairs.

op tree trunk

Oriental Passion has a wood themed interior, with a lot of bamboo
features and a large tree trunk anchoring the partitions. The real wood
and bamboo feature actually obscures the wash basin for patrons.

op mirror arrays

The interior of Oriental Passion also uses a lot of mirrors to
create the illusion of a larger space (and for the convenience of
patrons to check their make up by just glancing to the side ;)). There
are large reflective glass panels everywhere.

op mirror bricks

Oriental Passion also incorporates the mirror concept into the brick
foundation of the walls. There are small mirrors embedded into the
bricks on the wall every few feet. I went there with Irene [blogspot.com] last night to check out the place.

op back seating

There is also a bar seating area with lounge chairs and the rest of
the seating arrangements lines the side of the unique tight and long
space characteristic of the Jalan Padungan old shop houses. The back
also houses a tatami area.

op counter

The gramophone at the cashier counter lends a rather retro look to
the place. There are also bottles of home made chilli sauce for sale at
the cashier counter. Oriental Passion had a Valentine’s Day menu and we
both went for that option.

Oriental Passion has three Guinness mixed drinks which we tried in successive order:

guinnesslad

GuinnessLad (RM 10)
This drink is Guinness stout mixed with a mixer that I couldn’t
identify. It’s the plainest one of the series and the alcoholic content
of all three drinks are minimal at best.

guinnesslass

GuinnessLass (RM 10)
This one is Guinness stout with a cocktail of fruits and ice cream. It tastes great!

guinnessberry

GuinnessBerry (RM 10)
This is Guinness stout blended with blueberries. It’s a sweet drink
that goes down well, albeit with an almost indistinguishable stout
taste.

The Oriental Passion St. Valentine’s Day Dinner menu goes for RM 49.00 per pax and entails:

op chef salad

ORIENTAL Chef’s Salad
Passionate sushi-meat roll, fried bags of fortune served with refreshing lettuce.

op mushroom soup

Cream of Mushroom Soup
Button mushroom affectionately boiled with chicken stock and cream.

op rosemary lamb

Rosemary Lamb Chop
A tender lamb romantically filled with scent of rosemary flanked by salad and fries.

op lamb

This is the main course…the lamb meat is great, with the meat
slightly charred outside while the flavors of the lamb is infused
inside the tender meat.

op ice cream

Delightful ice cream topped with fine dark chocolate that melts your evening!

op vday gift

The Oriental Passion Valentine’s Day Dinner comes with a small complimentary gift-pack full of candy given out after the meal.

Oriental Passion is a great place to head to in Jalan Padungan coz
it tends to be less packed than the other eating establishments in that
area.

op sia utensils

It does seem that they took the Oriental part of Oriental Passion a little too literally though…all the eating implements seems to be sourced from Singapore Airlines! ;)
