One of the most memorable meals we’ve had in year 2012 was in Shook!, Starhill Gallery. We were there for the Sunday Masquerades Lunch, which happened to be one of those rare meals where everything was perfect. Everything starts from the food, the service, the ambiance down to the booze, the entertainment and the souvenirs makes it an unique dining experience.
Shook!’s team really went all out in preparation of the Mardi Gras-themed masquerade party. Beads, glitter and vibrant colors were spotted everywhere; which created a fanfare of spectacular colours and attitudes.
Here, the wait staffs dressed up in their flamboyant best; turning themselves into the pomp and pageantry of Royal Court Jesters and Sultry Sirens in feathered masks and Medieval Damsels in distress.
Shook! is transformed into an open theatre with the grandest feast in town featuring world class cuisines and free-flow champagnes, served with fun-filled fantasies on Sunday Masquerades. We loved the bright, funky and versatile Jester fabric seat the most. Very carnival-ish!
The Sunday Masquerades Lunch is meant to be enjoyed with leisure, starting from 12 noon to 3.30 pm. The buffet lunch is equipped with a feast of entertainment with fine dining and wining, cocktails-on-the go and also a choice of free-flow champagne.
Patrons were also presented with a complimentary masquerade mask each! The Sunday Masquerade Lunch offers a great buffet with a huge selection of delectable goodness, let’s go through the selection shall we?
Premium Oyster & Seafood Bar and Western-Style Salad Bar
The ala-carte menu of the Chinese cooking station deserves a special mention. We ordered the scrumptious signature dish of Dancing Prawns, King Prawn noodles and Roasted Goose noodles. The ala carte dishes came with a touch of personalised service, making them really delicious! Must order!
King Prawn noodles
Roasted Goose noodles
The Dessert Bar is highlighted as being among the best in town, with Pralines and Truffles, a Macaroon Tower, Chocolate Fruit Tartlets, and many more scrumptious delights! The selection appeals not only to the tastebuds but also to the eyes!
In between meals, we enjoyed the live performances by an Illusionist who bring smiles to our faces with his tricks. There’s something wrong with my smiley face badge?
KampungBoy’s new found superpower – bend the spoon.
Last but not least, each and every guest in masquerade will be presented with a self-portrait of professional photography with our compliments for fun and fame that will be remembered long after.
