“Latino Fiesta” at TEMPTationS, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

Yours truly was over at TEMPTationS recently to check out the “Latino Fiesta”.. A long time ago, I had a dashing Mexican boyfriend, Miguel.. he was really tall, dark and handsome (-of course he should be as he was also a model, but then again yours truly was not too bad looking and much slimmer, a dozen or more years ago….. *swoon*)….  and he taught me to eat some latino food and drinks back then… but that was a story from long, long time ago…

Naturally yours truly here would dearly love to be able to visit Latin American as it is indeed in my bucket list as well, but unfortunately, now being a mom of three, wife and all, I am tied down by low finances and responsibilities and a trip there to the Latin Americas can be quite far, costly and time consuming, as I think I would need a couple of weeks or more to enjoy those wondrous countries… especially if you have gone all the way there….but let’s see… if by some good reversal of fortune I might be able to see those gorgeous exotic countries personally one fine day…

I allowed myself to get swept away on a Latin American feast for the night…which you can to if you want to… as this Latin American fiesta is happening every evening from the 12th to 28th  August 2016.

The heroes of the Renaiissance KL kitchen, Indian Sous Chef, Latin American Sous Chef Pablo Crespo, Executive Chef Helmut Lamberger, Executive Chinese Sous Chef Kok Chee Kin and Renaissance General Manager Robert Frager

Spanish Guatemalan Chef Pablo Crespo will tickle your palate with a selection of Latin American inspired cuisine plus a la minute specialties at the live cooking stations for buffet dinner only.

Latino Fiesta offers a tantalizing array of indigenous dishes from the Latin American region. No matter which country it is, there is always something absolutely delicious to sample and Chef Pablo has scoured various Latin American countries to produce his intriguing menu.

The dishes are of course, made of a combination of some of the freshest and flavourful ingredients, so be sure to grab the opportunity to indulge your palate with some yummy Brazilian Grilled fish with orange sauce, Baleadas catrachas from Honduras, Chilean Empanadas, Argentinian Churrasco with chimichurri sauce, Colombian Posta cartagenera, Salvadorean Pupusas and Mexican Brownies with chilli among others.


Got to say I loved that Sopa de Tortilla or Tortilla Soup from Guatemala loads…. with some fried onions and cubed cheese… (I guess??!)

Of course there are other local and Western or more familiar dishes as well, beside just those awesome Latin American dishes…


I find it so hard to resist one of the freshly baked buns at the bread counter…

Indulge in fresh sushi at the Japanese corner

The lovely roast lamb…I find hard to resist….

And these delectably sinful desserts….

  1. I love lot of things about Latin America – their food, dances and culture. So nice that you guys can get the taste of Latin life there.


  2. I think Latin food is an acquired taste. However, I do wish to try them out once in a while. This sounds like a good choice, from your post. Thanks for the heads up.
