Hotel Jen’s Core Dishes are great options to check out for lunch and dinner if you are on the lookout for something wholesome. These dishes are available at Lime Restaurant in Male’ and at all Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts.
One of the most popular core dishes is Hainanese Chicken Rice, which is a South Asian staple. It packs a ton of flavor from the chicken stock, making it stand out from other rice dishes. What’s more, the rice is also fragrant with the aroma of shallots and garlic, and comes with a specially cooked chicken and home-made chili and ginger paste.
Pad Thai is another beloved Asian classic available at Jen, but with its perfect balance of sweet and sour notes, it is no ordinary dish. The stir-fried noodles are flavored with the most quality ingredients, including an excellent fish sauce, and delicious bits of seafood such as shrimp.
Next, the Chinese-style wok fried rice called Yangzhou Fried Rice is a comforting meal for any time of the day. This vibrant dish is simply delightful, and the fresh aroma of scallions makes it all the more appetizing.
Their Caesar Salad seems to be made just for those whose who prefer a little more character in their salads. The beef bacon adds a little extra crunch to the roman lettuce, and a drizzle of light Caesar dressing brings everything together nicely.
If you are not in the mood for a typical meal, you could reward yourself with their amazing Beef Burger, served with a side of French fries. This burger boasts a succulent beef patty and the cheesy goodness of cheddar, while fresh lettuce and gherkins add just the right texture, but what makes it extra special is actually the onion marmalade.
