|SILIQ Restaurant decor during the day|
It was our last night at Volando Urai Spring Spa & Resort and dinner was at the SILIQ restaurant, a fusion restaurant that blends the best of east and west. The service was impeccable, as expected of a restaurant of fine dining, but I much preferred the wait staff over at ABU restaurant because they were more smiley and welcoming. Ok, I might be a tad biased since that was the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised with my surprise (and complimentary) birthday soufflé cake (with birthday song to boot) the night before.

We were promptly seated and brought the menu to make our selection for dinner. Not long after, the food soon arrived in fine dining style:
|Grains Chinese buns (essentially slightly toasted fragrant mantou) served with basil butter, cinnamon meat saucr & sesame sauce|
|Appetizer: Siliq special platter which consisted of fresh scallop, fragrant mushroom & yummy smoked duck|
|Onion Soup which was lightly flavored and pleasant on the palate|
|DramaQueen had the Wild Prawn Plum Jelly Salad...|
|... while I had the Smoked Salmon Salad Spring Onion Dressing|
|White gourd lemon sorbet to wash the taste buds for the next dish!|
|Tender Fried Spring Chicken which was tenderly juicy and surprising not as oily as it looked|
|And I had the salmon steak|
|Dessert consisted of mozzarella, apricot & ganache, blue cheese & NZ Cheese with Longan Yogurt Mousse and a piece of chocolate|
With our tummies (overly) satisfied, we made our way back to the room (which was on the same floor) to watch a couple of DVDs before exploring the public hot springs (which we went the next day after breakfast) and ordering supper (just to experience it) before ending the night (finally!).
