If all you want for Christmas is food, you’ll find the best of it at Hilton Kuala Lumpur. The hotel has an exciting Christmas calendar with the theme, “Sugar, Spice and all things Nice”, with dining experiences rich in that traditional, at-home Christmas feel.
Best of all this year is the collaboration between Hilton hotels nationwide and the Make a Wish Foundation Malaysia, for the inaugural “When You Wish Upon A Star” campaign. Look for the blue star stickers on cakes, cookies and even buffet dinners, where RM2 from each purchase will be channelled from all Christmas related sales to the Make-A-Wish Malaysia to fulfil the wishes of Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s adopted child.
Hilton’s chefs (not elves!) are hard at work cooking up some irresistible yuletide indulgences. The array of food include festive decorated stalls offering hampers, baked treats, and even handicrafts. Never one to miss out on anything Christmas, we thoroughly enjoyed our early Christmas dinner at Vasco’s.
Vasco’s, Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s all-day dining restaurant is ever cosy and inviting, especially now that it’s decked with twinkling lights and Christmas trees. Over Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the eatery is holding its annual buffet of mouth-watering roasts, juicy cuts of meat, and every Christmas-inspired dessert.
For appetisers, we were served a seafood selection of Japanese dishes such as sashimi and sushi, oysters, and crab. The fresh, light start to our meal was perfect for saving space for the mains: duck, chicken, and turkey roast, served with sides of grilled zucchini, pumpkin, and brussels sprouts. Dessert was the most extravagant of all: glazed pastries shaped like a Christmas tree with tinsel-like sugar frosting. Accompanying the artistic dish are the usual suspects — gingerbread cookies, fruit cake and Swedish Christmas cookies.
