Vistana Kuala Lumpur CNY Yee Sang Dinner Review

End of last month, I was invited to review the CNY Yee Sang Dinner at Vistana Hotel Titiwangsa and it was my first lou sang of 2016! 

The lousang plate after mixing all together. Getting ready our chopsticks to toss! Toss for prosperity! Delicious plate with salmon~ <3
Next we have braised sweet corn soup which is really tasty~
I had 2 servings of soup!
My partner in crime eating - Meri~
Menu for the night!
Next we had fish - deep fried Grouper fish with Thai sauce. Sweet, sour and spicy sauce , perfect to match the fish.
We had musical performances too which is really pleasing to our ears while enjoying our meal.
Next, we had Crispy Roasted Sesame Chicken - I love the texture of the chicken match with the keropok and hot chili sauce.

Hong Kong Style Crispy Prawn with wasabi sauce - the thrilling sensation of eating wasabi and crispy juicy prawns~
With the Masterchef behind all these delicious food!
Braised broccoli and crab meat

Glutinous rice in lotus leaf~ very filling
treasure within~
Dessert time! Glutinous rice ball with ginger tea and red dates
last but not least, deep fried chinese new year cake with yam.
So good for skin, the glutinous rice ball has peanuts inside.
Overall, I find the food and service in Vistana Hotel is really good and location wise also close to Monorail  Titiwangsa.

Festive cheer review - The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur has recently launch Christmas Eve,Christmas and New year dinner menu at their colonial cafe. Together with my friend Daniel, we were invited to sample their festive cheer menu due to Diana unable to make it. 
Our menu that night is a mix of Christmas Eve and Christmas day menu. 
 You may view both of the menu here!

This is considered my first fine dining in Kuala Lumpur and the feeling is quite grand to be reviewing food in a luxury hotel like The Majestic Hotel KL. 
Our plates and napkins for the night.
There are only few tables set up there, around 6 round tables and few long tables.

I can see the sky when I look up.
Hotel rooms and balcony inside the hotel.
Live music playing when dinner service starts.
The design of the cafe is mainly following colonial style and kept as heritage.
round table settings of Christmas and lights.
Eating from outside in. Firstly we had bun with butter which I forgot to take. hehe.
pretty set up in the mood of Christmas

To start off, our prelude is Laurent - Perrier Brut Champagne. 
Champagne to get the night rolling
Followed by Amuse - Bouche - Chicken Liver Crostini . 
Chicken liver is not my preference however the crust is crispy and chicken liver is served cold within the bread.
Starter - Wood smoke infused blue mussel, scallop and salmon avocado puree, micro cress and creamy honey mustard dressing. the pairing wine is  Dourthe N°1 - Bordeaux Blanc. 
I like the mussel,scallop and salmon pair up in this plate. The seafood are fresh and the puree and sauce as just nice. 

My under dressed look, will take note to wear formal or at least a cocktail dress next time. XD
Soup - Cock a leekie 
We had a typical scottish chicken and leek soup which is quite common for me. It is delicious but not much of a presentation on the plate. 
Orange Sorbet - sweet and cooling with orange taste. I think this is like a wash or refresher.

My friend and I had different main course. His is the below Trio's King. 
Trio's King - Turkey breast, sausage in a blanket and herbs stuffing, served with creamy mash, minted mushy pea and red wine gravy. 
The steak is cooked quite perfectly with red wine gravy complementing the dish. The sausage is in a pastry with crispy crust and savoury sausage within. 
The dish is paired with Red wine - Dourthe N°1 - Bordeaux rouge . 
Baked salmon with lemon and dill sauce - accompanied with seasonal vegetables and dauphinoise potatoes. 
as my preference of salmon is raw, this baked version of salmon is ok. however I like the lemon and dill sauce with the crispy pastry on top of the fish which is quite delicious. 
Do try this dish if you love cooked salmon! 
Pudding
 Christmas pudding, vanilla sauce and white chocolate ice cream. 
I like the ice cream, vanilla sauce and the decoration. The pudding is moist however it is a bit too sweet and sour for my liking. If you have a sweet tooth, you must try this dessert.
Petit fours
Homemade christmas cookies and chocolates 
I love the melt in my mouth white and milk chocolates. Homemade cookies I only took a bite as quite full from the courses before. 
Freshly brewed coffee or tea. 

The service in The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur gets my A+ for always attending to all the guests' needs with waiters walking around to check every few minutes. 

Overall we were satisfied with the dinner and it is a great experience to have fine dining at the colonial cafe. Do make your bookings soon!
