My friend & I were treated to a sumptuous lunch at the River Grill during our sponsored stay at Exotic Casa Del Rio Melaka, The Latest Boutique Haven By HPL.

More surprises greeted me when we were ushered to our dining table. Another personalized leaf with my name on it!

Even the Ice Water has fresh vegetables & fruits in it! At Casa del Rio, it's the little things that count & the feeling's great!

Here's a 'Straits Colada' @ RM32 to start off my meal. The Cocktail with Palm Sugar, Rum, Malibu, Pineapple & my fave Coconut Cream was just perfect for the hot weather in Malacca.

Casa del Rio recommended us their Homemade Mushroom Soup @ RM18. The grilled King Brown Mushrooms Soup was rich & creamy & a drizzle of Porcini Oil worked wonders! Certainly one of the best I've ever tasted!

When Doris & I heard that Tom Yum was the Soup of the Day, we couldn't resist but to order. Sadly, the Seafood Soup was a little too diluted for our liking. I couldn't recall the price but the dish was certainly a far cry from the Mushroom Soup.

The Salt & Pepper Soft Shell Crab @ RM19 was an interesting start too. The appetizer, accompanied by Homemade Tartare, was crispy & deep-fried like the Tempura-style.

We picked 3 different main courses for tasting:

roast norwegian salmon, casa del rio melaka
The Roast Norwegian Salmon "Nicoise" @ RM40, plated with Beans, Olives, Cherry Tomatoes & Romaine Lettuce.

salmon cabonara, casa del rio melaka
Cold-smoked Salmon Carbonara @ RM36, cooked with Pappardelle Pasta, Egg-yolk & Cheese.

sirloin steak, casa del rio melaka
Sirloin Steak 250g @ RM79, served with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes, Onion Rings & Roasted Baby Onions.

The main dishes were huge in sizes especially for ladies. The steak could easily feed two. Taste wise, I would say the food is above average. At Casa del Rio, the Black Angus Steaks are served unpretentiously, keeping garnishes "uncluttered", enabling the meat to showcase its individual character.

  5. Having 2 choices of whether you prefer the air-con or fresh air dinning is really great. One could just switch according to the weather. Great idea and the food's really good at such a price.
