Majestic feasts at Colonial Cafe. The Gentlemen’s Afternoon Tea. A tribute to The Rat Pack by the Solianos.
Sounds like music to the ears this festive season isn’t it? We had a splendid taste of what’s in store for the Christmas and New Year celebrations at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, starting with glasses of warm, sweet and lightly spiced Mulled Wine and Poinsietta – a lime and grapefruit mocktail to whet the appetite.
By the time the talented Solianos stepped up their melodious showcase, we were happily nibbling on the amuse-bouche of Breaded Camembert Cheese with Blueberry Sauce.
That delicious morsel paved the way for the Cream of Watercress with Lobster Meat; a sumptuous broth of bright, clean and fresh nuances punctuated delicately by shellfish sweetness.
Tradition remained firmly rooted with a classic mid-course of Roast Turkey Slices with Cranberry Sauce, Stuffed Chestnut and Buttered Vegetables. The turkey was brined prior to roasting so the meat remained nicely moist and tender to the bite.
The night’s show-stopper was undoubtedly the Main Course of Baked Honey Glazed Cod with Butter Glazed Asparagus. Served with some lush savoury soy sauce, the fish’s on-point doneness reeled everyone in.
A touch of whimsy charmed us when the House Made Chocolate Fudge Cake with Crispy Brandy Snaps, Berry Compote with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream was presented. Shaped like Santa’s hat, the decadent chocolatey creation left us smitten and thoroughly satisfied.
