Miami Spice has officially ended (internally crying). Every year I have a list of places to visit for Spice and go to about two of the 50 on my list.
Jaya at The Setai has always been on my list since I had the fried rice a while back, but I never had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant again until last night. All I can say is Jaya lives up to its reputation; service and food were great!
Started with a little snack, something that resembles chips; not something I would die for but it was good
Starter– Truffle Dumplings with steamed scallop dumplings with truffle cream emulsion, and shaved truffle. Heaven in my mouth! There was also a surcharge of $8 for this.
Other options included: Tuna, Tomato Salad, and Hamachi
Entree– Thai Snapper with fried snapper filet, steamed vegetables and Tamarind sauce. The fish was AMAZING, but the Tamarind sauce overpowered the fish a bit.
Other options included: Miso Chicken, Potato & Cauliflower, and Wagyu Fried Rice (Supplement charge $14)
Dessert– Thai Tea Semifredo with almond financier, almond brittle, and white chocolate crémeux. I don’t know how I felt about this dessert, the outer layer wasn’t my cup of tea, but the white chocolate crémeux and almond brittle satisfied my sweet tooth.
Other options included: Hibiscus, and Fruits & Berries
If you dine at Jaya, I recommend the Wagyu Fried Rice over everything!
