Christmas Farewell Lunch

Happy New Year again to everyone! Let me share how my 30 hungry colleagues & clients ate & slaughtered my bosses during our annual Christmas lunch treat! My boss Dato Simon Lee threw a big lunch instead to coincide with the farewell of our client Mr. Kiyoshi Hayashi who was returning back to Japan. 



We all headed to this trendy seafood joint somewhere in
Bangsar. Look at how my colleagues ate and guess the
bill later.



They have a nice and cosy ambiance that reminds me of the
Fisherman's Wharf at the Bay Area in San Francisco.



We took up half section of the whole big restaurant. The Japanese
clients filled the first table with 3 Datuks entertaining them.


I always felt comfortable to sit with my Malay colleagues instead.




They serve fresh oysters which were air flown
from Holland, England & France!





My colleagues called so many servings of different oysters.




The first time I saw a Christmas Tree
made from many oyster shells.




I ordered the seafood soup and it was so
delicious & rich flavoured.




This is a huge serving of baked salmon fish, enough to feed
half dozen people.



  
A salmon dish with wasabi. So unusual.





 Huge lobsters for all.




A pan full of big prawns.




A pan of mixed seafood.




A hamburger with beef and crispy cut fries.




A beef steak with blood oozing out. Bluek!




A plate of poached salmon.




So many types of desserts ordered but this brownies is the best!





The damage was RM4,700.00


Ho Ho Ho Ho!

  1. **Pengsan** But not surprising also lah because seafood is very costly especially when imported from overseas. If boss belanja, must eat kaw kaw like that because if not, no chance to eat such fantastic seafood. Betul tak?

    1. The whole lunch was satisfying with a great variety of quality seafood. We don;t have any Japanese staff in the company. We have one Japanese company as our client and my boss treated their consultant with a farewell lunch.

    1. Yes! We were lucky always when comes to makan with boss. We eat with no qualms. I think too much oysters would be bad for health. I would prefer to fry it with eggs to make Oyster Omelette. LOL

  8. RM4.7k for how many people? How much per person, on average?

    1. I counted again and there were 26 persons which should work out to RM180 per pax. Expensive la. I rather go to eat at KL Hilton or Le Meridian's buffet.

  9. I always hear people comment how good fresh oysters are, but I have no luck cos I cannot eat oysters, if I eat oysters, I will go toilet, my stomach cannot take it

    1. Fresh raw oysters are slimy and geli to eat unless we add some lemon with tabasco sauce. I would get rashes if I ate too many oysters and just a bite of lobsters. I think it falls under the toxic food of TCM's list.

    1. It was really a scrumptious lunch with lots of merry making. I think I enjoyed everything else more than the oysters which tasted so raw.

  13. My, my, hungry after looking at all those delicacies. I wish I have a boss who could take me for dinner or lunch where I could actually order big dishes. Since I have none, will do one when I find a very special occasion.

    1. There is nothing to shout about having this boss. All bosses come with 2 pair of eyes, hands and legs but some have retarded brains.

      You would enjoy better with all your many good friends. The food would taste sweeter then.

  14. Wah, so syiok la your farewell lunch.

    1. Wah wah wah. Semua orang ogle at the Oysters only! The lobsters and prawns also good wat.

  15. Wah....but then for your boss shud be small amount la. Lol.

    Still very generous la

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow....your boss is the best...enjoy to the max! :D Everything I see, I like :) About RM156 per person is about right when it comes to a seafood meal like this. The lobsters probably took a chunk off the bill. They have a lot of different types of oysters on their menu and I know only one...Fine de Claire which costs about RM14+ for one here...a bit expensive I must say. If you enjoy eating fresh oysters, then I'd recommend Eatomo to you...fresh and cheaper (those Fine de Claire oysters cost only RM9.90 a pc at Eatomo). I also see the word Bertha on the menu...ah, anything from dear Bertha will undoubtedly be delicious...mmm, the char! ;)

    1. I recounted and think only 26 of us had lunch. We have almost 50 staff actually. So that works out to about RM180 per pax. I would prefer to eat buffet at Le Meridien or KL Hilton. More choices!

  17. I'm pretty sure my boss' pre-CNY lunch would come nowhere near as grand as yours... I want that lobster!

    1. Yay! You are the first to eye at the lobster. Everyone else preferred the Oysters!

      I would be happier to work in your company.

  18. nice place for a company function...yea, it's about this price for seafood meal...I have thought of getting this place for our company dinner too last year (2016) but then not all of us are keen in having seafood, so 'tak jadi' book the venue...Your boss is so good, treat client like 'king'...such a great farewell meal...

    1. I enjoyed the food and the company that day. After seeing the bill, I squirmed and thought that we should have headed to Meridien or Hilton for their long spread of buffet. I could sit and eat till eternity....!!! LOL

  19. Over $1K? But that's all right. You had fresh imported oysters, lobsters and shrimps which fed a big group of people. Plus, most of you were men and obviously has more appetite than women.

    This post made me really hungry. It's been awhile since I had seafood.

    Happy New Year!

    1. We had almost equal number of men and women. Both genders have many hungry ghosts and gluttons. Yeah it is over US$1K and very pricey by our standard.
      I am sure the US East Coasts have more delicious seafood havens. Enjoy!

  20. Seafood mar sure is pricey... Once a while to treat all the staffs, he is very generous. Must come over Taiping, I bring you over to Matang for seafood. No aircond lar...your wifey is welcome too.

    1. Wow! I have not visited Matang and I think Yannie blogged about it once long ago. I look forward to visit Taiping again soon and round up all the blogging sistas! We have not seen Yvonne Tan Yee Hua for a long long time too. Hope she is doing well and happy.

  21. wah this place must be very happy to have your boss business that day! that amount is kacang putih to your boss who has deep pockets. all of you must have finished their stock of fresh oysters! did you eat the big prawns and big lobsters with your bare hands?

    1. I think it was a good sales for them as it was a quiet lunch hour at that restaurant. They are popular with night diners and drinkers.

      You have good instincts! I really ate the lobster and prawns with bare hands.

      My boss didn;t expect the bill to hit the roof. He should learn from all the pasts when his team of gluttons eat together.

    1. I think so la. Bosses need to be slaughtered sometimes for overlooking at our needs. Ha ha ha

  26. One shouldn't eat more than 4 pieces of oyster at a time, or one may risk getting stomach upset or food poisoning. That's an advice from my dietician friend.
