The luxury of room service @ Prince Hotel

One of the things we love to do is stay in hotels. Even better than the plush interiors and the beautiful rooms is the luxury of room service. One of our favourite hotels to stay in for a lazy weekend in is the Prince Hotel and Residence in Jalan Conlay. I personally like this hotel because of the ultra high pressure shower!! :D

Anyway, its time to review the food!! Room service is such a luxury. You can be in your pajamas and have a trolley full of delectable delights sent to your room! The only work required is picking up the phone and choosing the food. To start off, we ordered a ceasar salad (pictured above). The salad was good. I like the addition of quail's eggs. The veges were cold (very important) and crunchy.

Next was the tom yam soup. I didnt get to taste this but judging by how fast it went it must have been good. A nice touch was the addition of a fried roll. To soak up all the tasty soup!

For the main course, we ordered two things. Pictured above is the steak. It looks miserable I know. I thought the same thing when they opened the cover. It came with a side of salad and some black pepper sauce. It was an ok steak, abit on the tough side but still not bad. The black pepper sauce was good!

I think most readers will know that I keep the best of the review for the last. Its not different with this review. The best order of the night was the nasi goreng kampung. It came with sides of fried egg, keropok, assam prawns, pineapple pickle and 3 sticks of chicken satay with satay sauce. The rice was very fragrant and spicy. The prawns were huge, fresh and the tangy assam it was cooked in was oh so heavenly when eaten with the fried rice. The satay though was ok only. What can you expect from hotel satay right?

All in all, I think we actually enjoyed the luxury of room service more than the actual food. Next time I think we will try other hotels.....
