‘Jom makan!’ is the clarion call of Hilton Kuala Lumpur this year for buka puasa. Foodies will be spoiled for choice with over 200 dishes planned for the typical “Kenduri–Kendara” buffet feast at Vasco’s. 
Topping our list of choice signature dishes are the pungent but sedaplicious Ikan Patin Sungai Tempoyak Gurindam from Pahang. Cooked with fermented durian, coconut milk, local spices and herbs, the tender river fish curry will entice you to load up on white rice.
Go easy though as there are tempting Nasi Dagang Ulek Mayang and Nasi Kerabu Watimang Landok from Terengganu too. Load up on the fragrant chopped herbs and pair with zingy Spicy Sambal Tumis Udang Harimau Dengan Petai Berangkai from Perak and Clams in Spicy Black Bean Sauce from Sabah for an ultra-satisfying meal.
Lesser known but equally appetising is Ayam Masak Lemak Rebung Joget from Selangor. Forget about the crispy rendang brouhaha and focus on the lush richness of Perak’s Rendang Tok with steamed Lemang — a great match that should score highly with local palates.
Our personal recommendations include Ikan Bakar Wak Safri Si Kuda Kepang from Johor and Puyuh Goreng, Murtabak Raja from Penang and assorted curries from the Indian kitchen. The inevitable crowd-puller of Whole Roast Lamb is there too but our meaty serving tastes kinda sinewy so we find it somewhat underwhelming.
Enhancing Vasco’s urban park feel vibes are live cooking stations, dishing up Asian and international favorites in addition to its impressive buffet showcase. Island counters laden with local and international salads, sauces and condiments fight for your attention amidst a colourful array of tropical fruits, cool thirst-quenchers and kuih-muih.
Sweet selection to finish with abound, from street food fave of Apam Balik and Pisang Goreng to Apom Johor, Cendol Jelly and Bubur Serawa Durian.
