Christmas and New Year are right around the corner and if you're still planning out your festive activities in town and in need of a marvellous dining experience in Kuala Lumpur, here we listed down five top-rated restaurants for you to get together with your family and friends.
From the divine cuisines at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur to Nobu's Christmas Omakase Menu, scroll down to check out what's on our list
LE MÉRIDIEN KUALA LUMPUR
Powered by its prestigious kitchens, Le Méridien introduces an array of options for your holiday delights. Be it a sophisticated evening at Gastro Sentral, a buffet galore at Latest Recipe or a dinner spread tailored for steak enthusiasts by Prime.
And each kitchen has rolled out several menus featuring different courses for preferences. We warmly recommend Beef Tenderloin, the 200 Days Grain Fed Australian Beef Tenderloin from Prime and Astice All’algherese, the Gently Poached Boston Lobster from Favola – the finest from land and sea.
NOBU KUALA LUMPUR
This year at Nobu, a variety of fresh, fine sea-sourced ingredients are combined for a vibrant chorus and instead of a traditional Japanese fine cuisine menu, things take a twist for the West to cater to the festive theme.
The menu highlights the Santenmori and Braised Wagyu Cheek for Christmas; while New Year sees Steam Abalone, Seared Lobster and Grilled Wagyu on the plates. Both menus also features unique desserts that you wouldn't want to miss – the green tea flavour Christmas Tree and fluffy Kagami.
PULLMAN KUALA LUMPUR
From Christmas turkey and Japanese Sashimi to European pastries and Asian cuisines, Sedap Restaurant at Pullman Kuala Lumpur serves a cultural blend of scrumptious buffet that caters for all tastes, making it a truly family's favourite. And if you crave for roasting feast as we do, you won't be able to resist the roast turkey and lamb at Sedap Restaurant.
THE RUMA HOTEL AND RESIDENCE
Festive celebration is never complete without some pastries and dessert classics. Served in the impressive space of LIBRARI at The RuMa Hotel, 'A Festive Afternoon High Tea' features an array of Christmas-themed delights from savoury to sweets and fruit scones.
And for those who're looking for a laid-back escape in the city during this holiday, The RuMa also offers the ideal plans for a staycation which includes Christmas brunch, dinner and spa retreats – all set to pamper you and your loved ones.
SAINT PIERRE AT W KUALA LUMPUR
Located at W Kuala Lumpur, Saint Pierre is one of the finest dining places in KL that serves the most excellent view of this city. This festive season at Saint Pierre, the Michelin-starred grand chef Emmanuel Stroobant introduces four menus made with only the finest ingredients such as oyster, uni, lobster, cornish chicken; lamb and kyushu wagyu for the main.
And an after-dinner drink at WET Deck at W and a panoramic view of KLCC Twin Towers and its firework display sounds like the best way to end a celebratory New Year's Eve night.
SKILLET AT 163
If you are looking for an extravagant and delectable degustation menu, then Skillet at 163 has one fancy option for you – the Christmas and New Year's degustation menu.
Featuring spectacular dishes like Lobster with celery, apple and seaweed oil (which can be topped with caviar with additional cost); 150 days Duck Prosciutto; and Lamb Loin with apple and whisky raisin, your festive dining experience can be a decadent one and is also customisable with additional add-ons like cheese platters, wine pairing and juice pairing!
