Chicago Rib House 1 Utama Christmas Menu

Christmas is just around the corner, with various restaurants and eateries introducing their Christmas menus. Just recently I had the opportunity to try out Chicago Rib House at 1 Utama's Christmas set menu. It was actually my first time over at Chicago Rib House, but with a tagline that goes "The City Of Steaks & Ribs", it piqued my interest the moment I stepped in.

Arriving at Chicago Rib House in the afternoon, we were introduced to their Christmas set menu, comprising of a welcome drink, an appetizer, a soup, a main course and dessert. Kicking off the "feast", we were served with our refreshing welcome drink, a choice of the Peach Bellini, Christmas Berry Delight, or the Mint Lemonade.

The Peach Belinni was a refreshing blend of fresh peach and sparkling wine, giving out that tingling feeling. If you like peach juice then by all means go for this drink. I liked the Christmas Berry Delight slightly more, as it had that berry fizz to it, sweet without overdoing it. 


#3 Mint Lemonade

It was an interesting welcome drink, the Mint Lemonade. I do like my lemonades, and to have it with a refreshing minty twist was a nice touch. Drinking this down gave a cool feeling, with a hint of light mint to the lemonade. 

 
#4 Crab and Cod Crostini

For appetizers, to whet our appetite further for the main courses to come, we were served first with the Crab and Cod Crostini. Now this appetizer was a delicious mix of seafood with creamy avocado grilled with Parmesan cheese. All these placed atop a crispy olive oil toasted baguette. I was surprised by the generous serving of crab and cod seafood mix, as usually other places only gives a small portion, but here it was definately more than a mouthful of pleasure. 


#5 Pomegranate Salad

The Crab and Cod Crostini was followed by a hearty serving of the Pomegranate Salad as part of the appetizer menu. It was a colourful mix of fresh salad leaves, yellow zuchini with Pomegranate dressing with feta cheese and honey roasted pecan nut. I'm a big fan of pecans, hence I personally picked off every pecan nut from my dish, and probably a couple of other dishes of my fellow diners that afternoon.

Part of Chicago Rib House's Christmas Menu was a choice of three different main course to choose from. We had the Dry Rubbed Coffee Ribs, the Roasted Pork Belly Roulade, and the customary Roasted Whole Turkey Leg to choose from the Christmas menu. However for the media tasting that afternoon, we were only served with a sampler set, not the full portion, including all three main courses on one plate.

Roasted Pork Belly Roulade, the name itself brought thoughts of a delicious slab of very fat pork belly, roasted to perfection. Here, it was exactly how I envisioned it would look like, roasted pork belly rolled with sage infused apples, olives and chestnuts, accompanied with tangy sweet apple compote and red wine reduction. One of my favourite dish for the afternoon, some may shy away from the fats, but with me, it's all good! 


#7 Dry Rubbed Coffee Ribs

Always a big fan or ribs, here at Chicago Rib House, they do serve some of the nicer ribs available. It was my first time having their Dry Rubbed Coffee Ribs, being oven baked dry rub spiced baby ribs with chargrilled glazed Coffee Sauce. I would have preferred my ribs being softer without being too burnt. Anyway it was a good dish, with the coffee sauce really bringing out that unique taste. 


#8 Roasted Whole Turkey Leg (Sampler Set)

We only had the sampler set, and not the Roasted Whole Turkey Leg, hence the smaller than usual portion. This did not deter me from wanting more though, as I felt the turkey meat tasted really good. Marinated, slow cooked and roasted with Thyme accompanied with cranberry jelly and classic brown sauce, this is a must have during Christmas or any festive occasion for that matter. 
 

#9 Pumpkin Tart

We ended a rather nice pre-Christmas meal with the dessert, which came in the form of Chicago Rib House's Pumpkin Tart. Not a big fan of pumpkins, be it in tart form or soup, I did try to have a go this time around. The roasted sweet pumpkin in tart pastry was served with strawberry coulis and topped with whipped cream. It was really creamy, and sweet, with the tart pastry crust literally breaking apart upon my touch, which I liked.
