Mums and Dads are in for an exquisite treat at The Westin Kuala Lumpur this Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Special menus have been created by the chefs of Prego, The Living Room and Five Sen5es as a tribute to the Queen and King of your heart.
SUMPTUOUS MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH AT PREGO
Chef Marco De Cecco rolls out the culinary carpet, whipping up a decadent brunch spread of Italian eats for Mummy dearest and the clan. Expect a palate-pleasing array of antipasti, fresh seafood, grilled meat and homely dishes during the leisurely brunch from 11.30am to 2.30pm. Golden and feather-light, the centrepiece of Baked Salmon, Leek and Zucchini in Puff Pastry should gladden the matriarch’s palate.
Lush and velvety smooth, the soup du jour of Lobster Voluté with Lemon Foam is bound to hit the spot. Dainty Potato Gnocchi with Saffron and Prawns will evoke a taste of home, ensuring Mum enjoy her meal without having to lift a single finger.
The specialities are merely a fraction of Prego’s lavish line-up of Italian temptations on May 12 at RM188 nett (food only) per person. Patrons can enhance their dining experience by adding RM160 nett for free flow of Prosecco, red and white wine, draught beer, special cocktails, soft drinks and chilled juices or a free flow of Moet&Chandon champagne in addition to wine, cocktails, draught beer, soft drinks and juices at additional RM260 nett per person.
HIGH ON TEA AT THE LIVING ROOM
Mama deserves the best eats on this special day and Chef Halim Chek Lah pulls out the stops, conjuring an extensive parade of East and West offerings to tempt her.
Zingy and aromatic Kari Ayam Kapitan, an inherited recipe of Kerabu Perut Kuala Kemaman, Kerabu Daging Bakar, Som Tam (Thai-style papaya salad) and luscious dessert form the headliners to mark Mother’s Day.
The Red Velvet Cake is notably moist and buttery while the Matcha Eclairs pass muster. Other sweet treats to savour include a flan heaped with pink pralines and fresh strawberries, chocolate-dipped strawberries and dainty choux puffs.
Priced at RM125 nett per person, the Mother’s Day High Tea (12.30pm-3pm) will feature a cake-decorating contest for mother-child teams.
MOTHER’S DAY FIESTA AT FIVE SEN5ES
A set menu of nutritious Chinese dishes take pride of place thanks to Chef Tan and his team at Five Sen5es for the Mother’s Day celebration. Warming up her heart and tummy will be piping hot and superbly comforting bowls of Morel and Wantan in Chicken Consommé.
Another highly recommended speciality is Sauteed Pumpkin and Seasonal Vegetables with Walnuts, a delicately flavoured dish that’s visually and tastebud-pleasing. According to the chef, his creations are healthy and conceived to suit the discerning taste of mothers.
Priced at RM128 nett per person (min 2 persons) and RM1,688 nett for a table of 10 persons, the Mother’s Day Lunch is from 12.30pm to 2.30pm.
FATHER’S DAY FEAST AT PREGO
Daddy dearest can sit down to a hearty Italian selection for brunch prepped by Chef Marco. The show-stopper is Risotto with Lamb Sausage, Gorgonzola and Green Apples — a familiar Italian rice dish given a fresh slant with diced green apple. The subtle tartness and crisp acidity help to temper and balance the creamy richness of the overall speciality.
To ensure patriarchs leave replete, Prego’s hearty brunch will incorporate Roasted Black Angus Prime Rib and Raw Tuna Dices with Frozen Dried Raspberries among other appetising options for that special occasion.
FATHER’S DAY FESTIVITIES AT THE LIVING ROOM
Bring the family patriarch for a sumptuous feast proffering Pink Pepper Macadamia Crusted Australian Sirloin, Yorkshire Pudding, Trio of Roasted Potatoes, Grilled Tuscan Vegetables and Pommery Jus as the key masterpiece. Rustic Osso Bucco is another noteworthy dish to sample; the vibrant flavours should float Dad's boat.
Priced at RM125 nett per person, the Father's Day Brunch is from 12.30pm to 2.30pm.
FATHER’S DAY HIGHLIGHT AT FIVE SEN5ES
Nostalgic yesteryear specialities to stir up good memories are the inspiration behind the celebratory feast at Five Sen5es. Papa won’t be able to resist the old-school but excellent Steamed Herbal Chicken Wrapped in Lotus Leaf.
Tender, juicy and suffused with fragrant Chinese herb nuances, a single helping won’t be enough. Even the sensuous gravy is bursting with sweet, soul-warming deliciousness.
Priced at RM128 nett per person (min 2 persons) and RM1,688 nett for a table of 10 persons.
The Westin KL will extend a complimentary glass of house red or white wine or draught beer with a specially made chocolate cigar will be given to all fathers on Father’s Day.
