Celebrate this festive season at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel as WACS Global Master Chef Helmut Lamberger and his team have crafted superb festive feasts to please all palates on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
We were invited to check out one of their dining spots, TEMPTations and experienced the festive buffet. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can enjoy a festive dinner buffet for RM148nett per person inclusive of a non-alcoholic welcome drink. The highlights of the buffet include the perennial Whole Roasted Turkey with stuffing and all the trimmings, Roast Prime Beef Ribs, Roast Leg of Lamb and more.
The Turkey is done well here and I specially love the tasty stuffing and cranberry sauce.
The Roast Beef Ribs is quite amazing too, especially when you do for the medium rare parts, so tender and full of flavour. But the highlight would be that giblet sauce, full of umaminess and goes exceptionally well with the Yorkshire pudding.
Roast Leg of Leg with Pumpkin Mash
Roast Fillet Mignon.
To whet your appetite, start your dinner with their seafood on ice, featuring oysters, slipper lobsters, prawns and more.
Great selection of salads and appetizers, with that Salmon Egg Mayo on Endive being my favourite of the lot.
Feeling Japanese? Sashimi is available too.
Balance your diet up with some dairy! Excellent selection of cheese.
The dishes do span from East to West, including some of our local favourites:
Sup Tulang (Bone Soup)
Ayam Goreng Berempah
And of course, I have to mention the Gnocchi:
May not look like much, but the Gnocchis are soft as pillows and the creamy sauce tastes amazing. I had to help myself to several servings of this.
The Garlic prawns were quite enjoyable too.
Baked Salmon, even though it’s fully cooked it’s not too dry.
Moving on to the desserts, and I must say this is the first time I see a Croquembouche in flesh, after seeing it at one of the MasterChef Australia challenge years ago.
A tower of custard filled choux pastry glued together by spun sugar. Yeap, pretty much accurate.
Gorgeous Yule Log
“Later we’ll have some Pumpkin Pie and we’ll do some caroling”
A variety of mini desserts
The Long lunch buffet at TEMPTations will be served on Christmas Day and New Year’s day, priced at RM138nett per person.
