Sedap Restaurant

Special thanks to Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre for extending this food review invitation.

Continuing its Christmas tradition every year, Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre is pulling out all the stops for its festive decorations. The centerpiece is a life-size Gingerbread Hobbit House at the hotel lobby. Yes, you can actually enter the house and check out the Christmas pastries inside! And yes, the "bricks" are made of actual gingerbread!
Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre will be serving Christmas Eve Dinner Buffet at Sedap Restaurant. Today's preview event serves to showcase the lavish delicacies that one can expect to savor on the actual evening.
Traditional Roasted Whole Turkey is a must-have during Christmas. Cooked to perfection, the bird is best enjoyed with giblet gravy or cranberry sauce. This poultry dish is paired with apple chestnut and sage stuffing.
As for beef, the Slow Roasted Prime Ribs goes well with Yorkshire pudding. Condiments include rosemary jus, Dijon mustard and horseradish cream.
Moving on to hot dishes, Roasted Sherry Duck Breast is cooked with lovely orange sauce. Other noteworthy Western cooking include Herb Marinated Lamb Chops, Chicken Blanquette and Baked Minced Seafood Lasagna.
Taken from French cookbooks is Tomato & Comté Cheese Quiche. The pastry crust is filled with a savory custard made of eggs, milk, tomatoes and French cheese.
At the salad section, cleanse your palate with Marinated Feta Salad, Waldorf Salad or Bohemian Potato Salad. I am also fascinated to see assorted cold cuts and cheeses.
Another section of the buffet spread serves seafood on ice. The live oysters here are a delicacy indeed. Also prepared are snow crabs, slipper lobsters, tiger prawns, black mussels, razor clams and white clams. There are several condiments to go with chilled seafood.
The Japanese section features an enticing array of sushi and sashimi to delight your palate. In addition, there is a tempura section where prawns and soft-shell crabs are served directly from the fryer!
The bread station at the corner has a wide selection of focaccia, baguette, country bread, French rolls, brioche rolls, grissini and more. The breads can be enjoyed with soup. In fact, the Prawn Bisque and Creamy Butternut Pumpkin Velouté are gratifying indeed!
There is no lack of creativity when it comes to Christmas confections. For instance, the Bûche de Noël is decorated like an enchanted tree! Next to it are Raspberry Tarts that look like toadstools. I am also pleased to see Madeleine & Croquembouche Towers. There is even a Lemon Cake in the shape of a sleigh!
Chocolate Yule Log Cake is also frequently encountered during Christmas. The chocolate Swiss roll is expertly crafted to resemble an actual Yule log.
Stollen is yet another popular dessert around this time of the year. This German cake-like bread contains candied fruit and nuts. Meanwhile, Panettone is a dome-shaped sweet bread from Italy.
Panettone Bread & Butter Pudding is a yuletide twist to the classic British recipe. The bread is to be enjoyed with creamy sauce made of vanilla, nutmeg and other spices.
The majestic Chocolate Fountain should not be missed either. In the spirit of Christmas, the melted chocolate takes on a vibrant pink hue that is simply irresistible!
As if the aforementioned treats aren't mesmerizing enough, check out the large platter of Christmas treats like gingerbread men, mini pretzels, Kit Kat, Dulcey, Oreo and M&M's. For fans of Lord of the Rings, edible Hobbit Playcards are available too.
The Christmas Eve Dinner Buffet is priced at RM208.00 for adults (add RM50.00 to include free-flow of beer and wine). The festive atmosphere throughout the evening is complemented by carolers and the appearance of Santa Claus. Last but not least, Christmas confections like cookies, cakes and chocolates are also on sale. Just visit the Gingerbread Hobbit House for gift ideas.
