Norwegian Salmon at Utara Coffee House

Set in the buzzing heart of Petaling Jaya, the Armada Petaling Jaya gives you the opportunity to feel and enjoy the tranquility of the city – the inner soul of Petaling Jaya.

Hotel Armada Petaling Jaya is among the finest 4 star hotel in Petaling Jaya. Situated next to the Federal Highway, Hotel Armada Petaling Jaya gives you the extra vibe with its 5 minutes walk to the Asia Jaya LRT station. Hop on a bus or taxi just directly opposite the hotel and find your way around town easily, be it the Business District, Industrial Zone, Food Heaven or Shopping Mall Giants. It is the perfect base for exploring the city. You are surrounded by them all.

Now, Team E.T.A was given the opportunity to try out their latest ongoing promotion: The Norwegian Salmon promo.

We get to try 7 dishes : Salmon Caesar Salad, Pacific Rim Salmon Soup with Shittake Mushrooms and Herbs, Salmon Tikka, Salmon Tostadas, Salmon and Potatoes Au Gratin, Foil Baked Norwegian Salmon and Salmon Roulade& Oyster Gratin. So, what do we say about it? Yay or nay?

Salmon Caesar Salad (RM26) was not only appetizing, but crisps and fresh too. Topped with grated parmesan cheese, the salad is to die for. Thumbs up for the Caesar salad. Highly recommended to those who can’t do without their greens.

Pacific Rim Salmon Soup with Shittake Mushrooms and Herbs (RM25). Voted everyone’s favourite that night. The soup was creamy and flavourful with generous chunks of salmon and shittake mushrooms. The accompanying garlic bread made the soup a wholesome meal, and small eater would find that the portion is pretty satisfying.

Salmon Tikka- fragrant rice, acar and cucumber (RM26). The rice, though fragrant was a tad bland and has a very strong herbal taste. Initially Team E.T.A wished that the chef had bothered to include some salt while cooking the rice, but much to our delight, the taste was pretty much balanced when paired with the flavourful Salmon tikka and refreshing cucumber slices.

Salmon Tostadas- served with tortillas, guacamole, sour cream and tomato salsa (RM26). Lovely dish, especially when dipped in the tomato salsa. Worth every penny spent and highly recommended to those who wants some Mexican fare on the table.

Salmon and Potatoes Au Gratin (RM28). The Salmon was fresh and naturally sweet and complement the potatoes au gratin pretty well.

Foil Baked Norwegian Salmon served with a bed of zucchini, capsicum and champignon mushrooms (RM28). Mr. T’s favourite that night. According to him, the salmon was not only fresh and naturally sweet, but was juicy and bursting with flavour. Any salmon fans would definitely adore this.

Last but not least, Salmon Roulade& Oyster Gratin (RM30). A slab of poach salmon served with oyster gratin. Ms.E loves the oyster gratin. It was cheesy and flavourful, but the poach salmon doesn’t seems to sit well with her. But then again, to be fair, she’s never a fan of fish, and to be able to sit through the meal was an amazing feat. :)

Overall, the salmon fare offered by Armada Hotel is delicious with only a fraction of the price.
