FOR those who prefer buffets over set meals, Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar offers a variety of festive favourites at its all-day dining restaurant, Link, this Chinese New Year.
While some restaurants offer set meals for Chinese New Year, Link offers its Prosperity Chinese New Year Buffet Lunch and Dinner with four rotating menus featuring a variety of cuisines.
Among the many dishes, some highlights include Marinated Crystal Rolls with Jellyfish, Shanghai Cold Chicken with Peanut Sauce, Aromatic Steamed Snapper with Teow Chew Sauce, and Oven Roasted Five Spiced Duck.
At the lok-lok and yong tau foo corner, choose from a variety of ingredients such as stuffed vegetables, fish cake, crab stick, chicken, squid, sausage, siew mai, otak-otak, and enjoy these with chilli sauce, sweet sauce, peanut sauce and sweet chilli sauce.
The Japanese section offers Avocado rolls, California rolls, and other types of sushi.
Choose from an assortment of cakes, puddings, jellies, and other sweet treats at the dessert corner.
Chinese desserts include Ping Pei Red Bean Roll, Plum Dumpling, Sweet Lotus Soup, Egg Tarts, and other Chinese baked delicacies.
At a recent media review, we were served Double Boiled Cordyceps Flower Broth with Chicken, Deep-Fried Paper-Wrapped Chicken, Steamed Snapper Fish with Fried Ginger and Soya Sauce, Braised Sea Treasure with Fried Garlic, Wok-fried Prawn with Curry Leaf and Butter, Braised Dried Oyster with Fatt Choi and Fried Rice with Chicken and Dried Shrimp.
Everyone at my table was pleased with the nourishing soup and the tender paper-wrapped chicken.
A Chinese New Year dinner will not be complete without tossing yee sang.
At the restaurant’s Yee Sang Bar, diners can creatively make their own auspicious yee sang with a wide selection of ingredients that include assorted julienned vegetables and fruit, with fresh butter fish, salmon, tuna and topped with the chef’s special wasabi plum sauce.
For dessert, we were served lin chi kang, pancake, Chocolate Fudge Cake and Pandan Sponge Cake.
As a dessert-lover, I was happy to see varieties at the ice cream corner, such as Macadamia Nut, Triple Chocolate Chip, Strawberry Cheesecake, Cookies and Cream, and Green Tea.
The Chinese New Year Eve buffet is until Feb 10, priced at RM90nett for lunch and RM106nett for dinner per person.
Children below five dine for free while those between six and 12 years old dine at half-price.
To mark the hotel’s first Chinese New Year, Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar has prepared a series of festive performances.
A traditional Chinese music band is available at dinner time on Feb 7 and 8, and you can choose from various couplets with auspicious meanings at the calligraphy corner.
The Southern Shaolin Kung Fu takes place on Feb 7 and 8 and an acrobatic lion dance accompanied by firecrackers will be held today at 11am.
