Drawing inspiration from ten countries around the world, The Westin KL chefs left no stone unturned in their quest to impress with a lavish spread fit for the festive season.

Taking diners on a whirlwind culinary tour around the globe, the vast Yuletide selection decking The Living Room starts with colourful platters of Santa Devil Eggs, Christmas Antipasto Wreath, Salmon Gravlax, Rainbow Vegetable-Wrapped Feta Terrine, Assorted Seafood and freshly shucked Oysters amongst other temptations.

In line with the Westin’s Eat Well philosophy, a Salad and Cheese Station featuring numerous imported kinds of cheese, fresh lettuce and salad leaves with a variety of condiments, pickles, sauces and dressings is included; to enable diners to rustle up their own salads.

Main highlights to savour range from perennial Roast Turkey, Lamb Leg and Beef Wellington to more distinct European-centric fare such as the well-spiced and aromatic Spanish Paella Seafood, and a surprisingly moist Duck Leg Confit with Cherry, Quinoa and Orange Sauce.

The rustic but flavourful dishes of German-inspired Braised Red Cabbage with Apple, and Swedish-inspired Hasselback Potato with Orange Cheddar Sauce somehow left quite an impression. Possibly because they are meatless; a nice counterpoint to the heavier, protein-laden fare we've been feasting on.

Not to be outdone, newly appointed Executive Pastry Chef Syeriff Hafizal holds his own by proffering a treasure trove of sweet treats. Flanking his showpiece of a giant gingerbread house are an oversized Chocolate "Log" Red Velvet Cake (lauded for its moist fudgy texture), a Croquembouche Tower and assorted Macarons (whimsically decorated as reindeer, santa, snowman and Christmas tree) amongst others.

Some gems await in the bread section: Ginger Bread Loaf inspired by Vienna, Panettone and Christmas Stollen Sweet Bread from Italy, and Walnut Raisin Baguette inspired by France are notable choices. Dial up your festive mood with traditional Christmas cookies if you are so inclined.

Three set Chinese New Year (CNY) menus: Happiness, Blessings and Abundance Reunion will take centrestage at Five Sen5es to usher in the Lunar Year of the Rat.
Available from 6 January to 16 February 2020, each set menu includes a complimentary bottle of House Red or White Wine. Colourful Yee Sang salad and a la carte festive specialities will also be served during the celebration.
After sampling Chef Ron Lean and his team’s selection of culinary masterpieces from the three set menus, we gave the on-point dishes our stamp of approval and fulsome praises.
Artistically arranged into a pair of carps, the customary Salmon Yee Sang, encircled by an assortment of fresh fruits, vegetables and pickles raised our hopes for good fortune and prosperity for the upcoming CNY.
Slightly thickened for lusciousness, the comforting Braised Crab Meat Soup with Fish Lips and Dried Scallop was lapped up enthusiastically by one and all. No complaints here unless thick soup doesn’t float your boat.
Crispy skin and juicy meat of the Roasted Chicken with Crispy Salt Pepper was a surefire crowd-pleaser. Unsurprisingly, the delectable chook had most of us asking for repeat helpings.
Having ramped up his game after debuting at Five Sen5es, Chef Ron’s astute timing and cooking prowess proved evident upon the first bite of the Steamed Dragon Grouper with Fungus and Enoki Mushroom. 
Complemented by the chef’s special sauce for an extra flavourful boost, the fish beguiled us with its delicate and sweet flesh with just the right degree of doneness. Toppings of tender fungus and enoki for textural interest didn’t go remiss either.
Expect happy laughter to resonate once you savour the Stir-fried Prawns with Butter Milk Sauce. The savoury rich sauce hugging the springy crustaceans caused a flurry of effusive finger-licking at the table.
Broccoli florets lightened up the auspicious dish of Braised Fish Maw, Mushroom and Beancurd with Money Bags. Varying textures piqued our interest; the contrasting yet complementing components spurred us to make short work of them. Their rustic nuances was amplified by the slick coating of deeply flavourful braising sauce.
Amazingly, we had tummy space left to fit in sampling portions of the Traditional Lotus Leaf Rice with Diced Chicken. The soul-satisfying woodsy-earthy accents meant additional helpings were called for.
Concluding the meal on a celebratory high was a befitting trio of Chilled Peach Gum Soup with Red Dates and Longans, Deep-fried Chinese Gold Cake (nian gau) and a cute mouse-shaped Pineapple Cookie. The symbolic offerings left us in a positively hopeful mood.
Advance reservations is recommended for the Happiness Reunion Set (RM1,988 nett per table of 10), Blessings Reunion Set (RM2,188 nett per table of 10) and Abundance Reunion Set (RM2,388 nett per table of 10).
Three varieties of Yee Sang: Smoked Salmon (RM198 per serving), Abalone Slices (RM218 per serving) or a combination of both will also be served at Five Sen5es from 6 January until 16 February 2020.
