Be my Valentine at Amari

Once a year, a day is set aside in the calendar to celebrate our loved ones with romance and sweetness – a time to rekindle precious moments and to just enjoy each other.

Be my Valentine at Amari Johor Baru
This Valentine’s Day, Feb 14, Amari’s team of talented chefs led by Executive Chef Simon Tam, has planned two exciting menus in two separate settings for guests to celebrate love for one another.

At the Amaya Food Gallery, the lady will receive a stalk of rose and a complimentary door gift while Valentine couples can raise their glasses of Two Hearts mocktails to capture their special moments together.

In the tradition of Amaya, various sections of the buffet will serve a range of mouth-watering Thai, Asian and European dishes and desserts

These include Thai Stir-fried Chicken with Chili and Basil Leaves and Green Curry Mussels, Grilled Fish Fillet with Tropical Fruit Salsa, Roasted Spring Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce and Pan-seared Duck Breast with Butter Orange Sauce.

There will also be fresh seafood-on-ice and a cheese platter with choices of various types of cheese to savour with crackers.

Pastry Chef, Syeriff Hafizal, has designed a range of rich and romantic desserts that aim to melt her heart as the couple shares the sweetness in creations like Berries Cheese Cake, Valentine Chocolates, Rum Cake, Hazelnut Brulee and piping hot waffles topped with ice-cream.

Participating couples in a Facebook Photo Contest stand to win a luxurious 2-day/1-night stay in a one-bedroom suite with breakfast for two at the Amari Johor Baru.
