Foodie Friday: Festive Cheer Review at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

What I didn't expect of was to receive email from the prestigious The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur early of this month for the exclusive invitation to review their new launch of Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year dinner menu. Initially, I decided to reject the invitation as I wasn't able to attend but then, I was thinking why not asking my blogger friend, Sherrie Pui aka Cutebun to attend on behalf of me. It's not like this golden opportunity would come every single time, right?

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur has recently launch Christmas Eve,Christmas and New year dinner menu at their colonial cafe. 

We were thrilled to be invited as replacement for Diana's invitation on 4th December night. Our menu that night is a mix of Christmas Eve and Christmas day menu. This is considered my first ever fine and luxury dining in Kuala Lumpur and the feeling is quite grant to be reviewing food in a luxury hotel like The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Chicken liver is not my preference however the crust is crispy and chicken liver is served cold within the bread

Starter - Wood smoke infused blue mussel, scallop and salmon avocado puree, micro cress and creamy honey mustard dressing. the pairing wine is Dourthe N°1 - Bordeaux Blanc.

I like the mussel,scallop and salmon pair up in this plate. The seafood are fresh and the puree and sauce as just nice. 

Soup - Cock a leekie

We had a typical scottish chicken and leek soup which is quite common for me. It is delicious but not much of a presentation on the plate.

Orange Sorbet - sweet and cooling with orange taste. 

As for the main course, we were served with two distinctive type, one of each.

Trio's King - Turkey breast, sausage in a blanket and herbs stuffing, served with creamy mash, minted mushy pea and red wine gravy.

The steak is cooked quite perfectly with red wine gravy complementing the dish. The sausage is in a pastry with crispy crust and savoury sausage within. The dish is paired with Red wine - Dourthe N°1 - Bordeaux rouge . 

Baked salmon with lemon and dill sauce - accompanied with seasonal vegetables and dauphinoise potatoes.

As my preference of salmon is raw, this baked version of salmon is ok. However I like the lemon and dill sauce with the crispy pastry on top of the fish which is quite delicious. I would recommend to try this dish if you love baked salmon.

Here come the dessert part, Christmas pudding, vanilla sauce and served with white chocolate ice-cream

Cute and lovely presentation

I like the ice cream, vanilla sauce and the presentation. The pudding is moist however it is a bit too sweet and sour for my liking. If you have a sweet tooth, you must try this dessert.

Petit fours

Homemade christmas cookies and chocolates 

I love these chocolate melt in my mouth. As for the homemade cookies, I only took a bite as I was pretty full from the courses before. 

Besides that, the menu also including freshly brewed coffee or tea.

My Verdict:
The service in The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur gets my A+ for always attending to all the guests' needs with waiters walking around to check every few minutes. 

Overall we were satisfied with the dinner and it is a great experience to have fine dining at the colonial cafe.
