December is of course a season of festivities to celebrate Christmas and the start of the New Year. For us, December is special as it's our "Anak Bujang"s birthday month.
Thanks to the invitation of a fellow blogger, Missyblurkit and also the generosity of Hilton Kuala Lumpur, the family were able to enjoy the delicious Christmas buffet dinner at Vasco's last Friday, and celebrate Son's birthday too!
The opulent Christmas Lunch & Dinner buffet spread at Vasco's Hilton Kuala Lumpur features Chef Roxanne A Castillo's signature dishes for Christmas such as the roasted honey glazed home-smoked turkey (the hotel's special turkey. You gotta try it too!), roasted dry rubbed Black Angus prime rib, Irish lamb stew and turkey gumbo soup.
A close-up of the ribs.
And the roasted honey glazed home-smoked turkey.
One can really taste the smokey flavour as one eats the turkey. It was superbly done.
Apart from the traditional Christmas fare, the buffet spread also features other favourites such as seafood, Japanese and local spread.
From the cold cuts and salad table.
From the seafood section, two magnificent fish ice carving towers and watches over the array of fresh seafood served.
The plump oysters were (and always will be) a personal favourite but the prawns, mussels and crabs were great too!
My two boys had a great time digging through all of them!
Of course we didn't forget the Japanese section with an array of sushi, sashimi and tsukemono to please any discerning Japanese food lovers.
Salmon, edamame and tsukemono.
Tsukemono (pickles) served. There is even kimchi served!
Local favourites are not forgotten too, with briyani and noodles available for diners to dig in.
Noodles and steamed fish, anyone?
Another one of my personal favourite and one that I rarely indulge in, nowadays is the array of cheese served at the buffet. Heaven!
And what respectable desserts section is, without a gingerbread house for Christmas?
Popular and traditional Christmas desserts such as Christmas puddings are available, alongside popular cakes and also local kueh-muehs.
The birthday boy later had a nice surprise and what a nice gesture it was, from the Hilton Kuala Lumpur people!

It was really a nice evening not only for us three to celebrate Son's birthday together but also to share the special day with friends during the dinner.
Great food, great company.
