A Majestic feast of Local Flavours

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur was first built back in 1932, and the original hotel became one of the great landmarks of Kuala Lumpur in its time. It is just located a few minutes from KL Sentral with 300 luxurious rooms and suites.

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur is Kuala Lumpur’s only member of The Leading Hotels of The World’s family of iconic and legendary hotels and it never fails to take my breath away at it’s colonial splendour everytime I step through the doors…

I was there for the preview of this year (2016) Buffet Ramadhan spread after hearing so many good raves about it last year, and naturally, it did not fail to impress…

So for those breaking fast after a whole day of fasting, and wanting some time together with loved ones, friends or colleagues, this is a lovely place to sit back, and indulge in a good sumptuous dinner guaranteed to thrill your palates and senses…

Choose between the Festive Variety Dinner at the lovely Contango from 4 June to 5 July and the Majestic Festive Banquet Dinner from 13 June to 2 July…..

Do not forget local favourites the roti canai and the murtabak… try it with the scrumptious chicken curry… it is just so lip smacking good…I went a little over board with the curry as it was just so yummy… hahaha

Some local favorites… from a variety of keropok/ crackers as well as some serunding /meat floss….

And what is a local meal without the well known ulam-ulaman/ local salad and accompanying sauces such as sambal belacan, cincalok, budu etc…..I enjoyed the salted duck egg and the otak-otak or was it called botak-botak… lol…the taste was just like the normal nyonya otak-otak but with the consistency of some fishball/ fishcakes…

It is always a must to have some sweet endings to a good meal.. choose what you want in your ABC / Ice Kacang….

Indulge in some very yummy ice cream…. I seriously recommend the raspberry or pineapple sorbet or the chocolate ice cream!!! My personal favourites….

For those who like some piping hot/warm desserts, check out the Apple Crumble or Bread and Butter Pudding… eaten with the cream/ custard sauce that comes with it, it is delectable….

I cannot get enough of these Onde Onde or Buah Melaka… as it is one of my favourite local kuih. Sadly, not everyone makes it perfectly…And this one is just perfect with a nice little crunchy chunk of gula melaka inside it…one bite and I feel like I am almost in heaven…

Those who like fried dishes like my husband would definitely enjoy the Banana Fritters/ Pisang Goreng or other assorted fritters….

The generous array of desserts featuring local delights such as kuih peneram, seri muka, tapai pulut,tapai ubi are all tasty … from Raya cookies to the bubur kacang hijau with durian, serawa durian/ santan durian and pengat pisang (one of the most yummiest around)….

Well, don’t just take my words for it, you have to try it out yourself !!!!
