Surrender to sweet temptations when you celebrate Christmas at Lemon Garden, Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur this year. Festive dessert steals the limelight; from luscious Sicilian Cheesecake to sugar-dusted Cristollen, the sweet selection trumped even the main buffet bounty.
My personal fave is the fruity sweet and nutty Peach & Almond Crumble Pie. Lightly rich on the tongue, the peachy segments are almost sensuous in texture.  Also hitting the mark are Mince Pies, Classic Yule Log Chocolate, Almond Pound Cake and Chestnut Chocolate Layer Cake.
Laden with green tree-shaped frosting, Christmassy cupcakes beckon alongside berry-fruity cakes, gingerbread, spiced star cookies, mini shooters of fruit mousse and jars of berry compote with vanilla sauce.
When it comes to seafood, the surfeit of crabs, mussels, scallops, crayfish and prawns is unrivalled in town. My seafood loving friends take to the feast swimmingly and have nothing but praises for the bounty.
I’m happy to carve a generous slice of Roasted Duck marinated with orange as my main savoury option. The faintly gamey duck meat is delectable, bathed in zesty orange sauce and its own jus. Fat spears of asparagus also boosted the enticing appeal of Baked Duck Breast.
Salads come in different tantilising guises too. Keep your eyes peeled for juicy tomato halves topped with stretchy, creamy mozzarella slices, diced beetroot with bits of feta and mini salad jars of corn and mixed leaves.
Wander over to the Italian corner for oven-fresh, paper-thin and crisp pizza topped with wilted spinach, tomato slices, artichokes or pepperoni and appetisers like stuffed peppers with ricotta. Chefs are also on standby to rustle up pasta dishes of your choice on request.
