Christmas is just round the corner! If you are not planning to cook up a storm but instead looking for options to dine out for a nice Christmas meal, you can check out the exciting fare at Pacific Regency KL.
About a week ago, I received an invitation from the folks at Pacific Regency Suites to attend a preview of their Christmas buffet.
Pacific Regency is a 4 star hotel cum suites and is situated right opposite KL Tower, an enviable location indeed. Ms Panir (Assistant Manager, PR) and Ms Nurul Izzah (Assistant Manager, Communications) were our kind hosts for the night, which was also attended by other food bloggers and media personnel.
Entitled "It's a Jolly Good Christmas at Pacific Regency Hotel Suites!", the buffet offers a sumptuous selection including Western, Chinese, Japanese and several live cooking stations. Executive Sous Chef Zairul who helms the kitchen, explained that the main star of the night, the Roasted Free Range Capon Chicken - is a healthier option to the traditional Roast Turkey as Capon chickens are bred without any usage of hormones or artificial growth enhances and are free from antibiotics.
We dined at Soi 23 on level 23, which offered a handsome view of the city's skyline as well as a majestic view of the KL Tower. Come Christmas Eve, the buffet will be available at both Soi 23 and Cristallo Di Luna.
Here are some of the interesting spread available to tantalise your tastebuds.
|The magnificent bird that's the highlight of the buffet|
|Seafood platter comprising king prawns, queen scallops, flower crabs and mussels|
|Hubby and I enjoyed the pasta - especially this squid ink pasta with their speciality Bolognese sauce. It was delicious.|
|Tuck into a more than decent cheese platter|
|Braised Beef Stew - the gravy was rich and beefy, but unfortunately the meat was overcooked and rather tough.|
|Yam ring with seafood - a pretty respectable rendition|
|Pan Seared Salmon with Tri Color Peppers|
|The dessert selection - I especially enjoyed the Christmas cookies and the green tea muffins|
