Promotions & Christmas 2012 @ Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur

Time flies. Without realizing, Crowne Plaza Mutiara Hotel now celebrates 40 Years of Great Malaysian Hospitality. In conjunction to that, Planters' Inn Restaurant is bringing back a taste of the long-forgotten staples we used to love. 

Back to 1970’s era, the chef has prepared an array of nostalgic food, 
served in the good ol' 3-tier stainless steel food carrier. 

Among the 9 main dishes, I have not seen some for many years. It's great to have a taste of them again at this restaurant. My favourite pick is the braised tofu skin topped with Chinese wolfberry, so silky smooth and well-infused with herbal aroma. 

Back to basic, the Sweet and Sour Fish, which remains a popular dish until today, never fails to captivate my heart with its tangy flavour that opens up my palate. 

The tiffin box not only brings sentimental value, but it also does great in keeping the warmth of creamy coconut-milk-based chicken curry. One of the best food to indulge in during this rainy season. 

The best of 70s cuisine will be available on the buffet throughout the month of October in 2012. 

"Nostalgia For 2" at Tiffins Restaurant
Duration: 1 Oct to 30 Nov 2012
Available for lunch

After a sumptuous dinner, what about a relaxing evening at Club Bar? As part of the 40 years celebration, this watering hole is hosting some of the best and most popular British dishes throughout the 4th quarter of the year.

Sitting elegantly with French fries, the classic Cod Fish & Chips beautifully retains the rich taste of its succulent white flesh. Enhanced by a subtle citrus zing and a sweet savoury sauce, the appetizing pub style food definitely whets my appetite. 

Drizzled with brown sauce, the Cornish Pastie has a good amount of stuffing--- minced beef with chunks of potato, onion and turnip--- lightly seasoned with a peppery tinge. Served with a bed of mashed potato topped with mint sauce, it is simply filling.  

The menu has more than a juicy piece of lamb chop or a well-marinated beef tenderloinFrom  the savouries such as Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash, to desserts like the all time favourite Bread and Butter Pudding, plus English Scones with condiments on the side. You don't need to go to Britain for a taste, just pop down to their local watering hole for a bite and munch your way through Club Bar!

#1 Gingerbread House

It's the season for sharing. Being the final Christmas season for Crowne Plaza, the brigade of chefs have pulled out all the stops to provide you with a feast to remember for the one last time before the hotel is demolished after 40 years of excellent services. 
#2 Carvery Station: Roasted Turkey

No Christmas is complete without turkey, agree? Here I have one roasted into perfection, maintaining its juicy, healthy flavour. Best drizzled with the creamy horseradish sauce that adds a flavour punch to the roasty meat. 

So much as we do not want to miss the ever classic turkey with cranberries and sauce, another must-try is the mint rubbed leg of lamb, amazingly juicy and well-marinated.

#3 Appetizers: Salad, Smoked Salmon & Popiah

During the night of food preview, our taste bud is tantalized with a wide buffet spread. If you are looking for something light, tasty and healthy to nibble on before a snooze, the spicy and tangy appetizers, be it served hot or cold, are excellent pick-me-up.

 #4 Grilled Lamb

#5 Grilled Fish

Moving on to the mains, I'm delightful to see the healthy selection of meat ranging from lamb, beef to seafood. I always opt for grilled food over fried bites, and a subtle citrus zing onto the fish is definitely tempting my palate! 

#6 Sushi

 #7 Fresh Sashimi Cuts

The all-day buffet is not just about local delights, but also boasts a varieties of salmon and tuna cuts. The Japanese fried foodstuff, tempura, is prepared at the live cooking station, all are just an order away!  

#8 Condiments for Chocolate Fountain

#9 Black Forest Cake

For desserts, a slice of light black forest cake is enough to crave a smile on me. I love the layer of moist chocolate mousse in between chunks of berries. Definitely not over cloying for non-sweet lovers. 

#10 Raspberry Mousse Cake

#11 More Flavours of Tart & Cakes

#12 Pudding

 #13 Tiramisu

To complete my Christmas celebration, I mustn't miss tiramisu, a creamy mascarpone custard layered with rum and coffee. It is so rich and dense that it keeps me going for for a second helping. Delicious!

#14 Warm Crepe Topped with Ice Cream

Here's the chef signature dessert which I remember vividly from my last visit here. The warm crepe paired with ice cream is certainly a delightful combinations, and I love this dessert being prepared ala minute right in front of me. 

A perfect setting for the season of joy and celebration. 

 For this coming Christmas, Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur has prepared an ala carte menu for family and group dining, as well as an array of Christmas goodies to be brought home.
