Muri Beach Club Hotel recently celebrated the re-launch of their brand new restaurant, SilverSands, which proudly offers its’ patrons a revamped Polynesian Cuisine menu. This is the end product of many months of research into the delicious and traditional dishes prepared by different island dwelling nations within the South Pacific Region.
"SilverSand’s menu is a labour of love, intended to showcase our love of the fertile soil, the bountiful sea and the beautiful Pacific Island people, with their multicultural backgrounds and ever optimistic, generous spirit ", says Liana Scott, General Manager of Muri Beach Club Hotel. " After many requests from international guests for authentic Polynesian cuisine and a successful 6 week trial of the various dishes that had painstakingly been researched for the new restaurant concept, the new SilverSands restaurant, with its’ Polynesian Cuisine menu entitled ‘A taste of Polynesia’ was opened last week.
"The strength of the Polynesian Cuisine is in its’ relatively sustainable simplicity, whilst continuing to remain adventurous and wholesome" says Liana. "The use of whole, raw, unprocessed and organic ingredients provides for optimal nutritional benefit" she adds. In response to many of the Hotel’s more holistic thinking patrons, Muri Beach Club Hotel will be actively using SilverSands as an avenue to promote the endless range of power-packed local ingredients that are known to stimulate the body’s immune and regenerative systems. Where possible, dishes have been ‘slow-cooked’ and ‘rested’ to retain maximum food value as well as quality of product.
The Hotel chefs and restaurant / bar staff (themselves representative of the many different Pacific Island cultures) have thoroughly enjoyed working collaboratively to create the main menu features, and continue to proudly contribute to the ever-changing daily ‘Specials’ which originate from their traditional kitchens.
In line with the new restaurant concept and menu, the Hotel will be enhancing its already prime location with a re-developed expanded outside dining area facing the Muri Beach Lagoon, which provides for an excellent function/entertainment area.
In addition to the new a la carte menu, SilverSands restaurant will be promoting 3 special themed cuisine nights with live entertainment as follows;
* Sunday ‘Big Beach Barbeque Night’, with a range of steaks, fresh fish, and chicken being grilled to order by the chef, accompanied by crispy fresh salads and tempting desserts.
* Fridays ‘Pig and Prawn Night’, with platters to order of succulent marinated / roasted spare ribs and whole king prawns [prepared 4 ways].
* Wednesdays ‘Polynesian Seafood Buffet Night’, with an impressive range of hot and cold mains dishes, as well as irresistible desserts, from the Pacific Region.
