5enses @ Westin Kuala Lumpur

I used to went down to Kuala Lumpur 2 to 3 times a year after I am back to my home town, but in year 2012, I think I did not ever make a trip down until I noticed that my Starwood vouchers are expiring!

Hence, immediately I make a reservation using my Free room voucher are Westin Kuala Lumpur, and my Buy 1 night free 1 night voucher at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur.

Not only that, I still got a bunch of RM200 vouchers to spend!

After meeting up with bear at Pavillion, we head to the newly renamed 5 senses at Westin Kuala Lumpur for our dinner.

The appetizer is indeed, quite appetizing.

The Famous Authentic Traditional Peiking Duck in Two Series (北京鸭) @ RM108, which is very expansive for me and I would not order if I did not have the RM200 voucher. It’s a 2 dish combo, which we will be eating the skin first, and then the meat will be cooked with noodles and served later.

The chef and waiter bring the whole duck beside us, showing us his skills on slicing out the skin of the duck.

Westin @ Kuala Lumpur

Westin Kuala Lumpur is the first Starwood brand hotel I stayed in Malaysia, which was like almost 2 years back, but yet I only take photos of it during my last Kuala Lumpur trip during December 2011.

Service is still good, check in is still fast and although my stay was kinda messed up due to their poor front desk for not checking my reservation properly, but since it’s past so long, I am lazy to talk about it here. Those interested can go find my complaints at Trip Advisor. 😀

Since this room is the Premium room, which is actually the same as their normal room, just that it have a nicer view aka facing Pavilion. Which is good too so that I can check out the traffic in Jalan Bukit Bintang is bad or not before I go and get my car.

Oh and as usual, the bed is nice, and you still need to pay for the internet. That’s what my tethering for.

Dim Sum Buffet @ EEST, Westin Kuala Lumpur

When I sign up for my Starwood Privilege card, I was told that the EEST Dim Sum Brunch is very very good. Hence, for my free dining for 2 voucher in Westin Kuala Lumpur, I decided to use it at EEST. EEST is initially a Halal Restaurant if not mistaken as I was told that they recently just change to a non-Halal restaurant.

Qba Latin Grill & Bar @ Westin Kuala Lumpur

Okay, as per my one of my previous post, where I am hugely disappointed on the steak served, I decided, I should try another steak house during my short stay in Kuala Lumpur! My choice? Qba Latin Bar & Grill @ Westin.

It’s Monday, and being a weekday, the restaurant located underground of Westin Kuala Lumpur is sorta empty.

Being served first is the bread, but no way the standard is near to Prime @ Le’ Meridien Kuala Lumpur. The bread is to go with olive oil, which is quite bland in terms of taste, hence just a bite of it, I gave up (just like in almost all other places that served free bread before my food).

Maybe that’s just because I hate most bread unless it was reallllly delicious, but well…

The waiter is a friendly one, and for appetizer, we get the Hokkaido Scallops and Western King Prawns with Romesco Sauce @ RM38. Well, I must say the Romesco Sauce is actually very unique and I like it very much. However, something I can’t accept is, for such a restaurant, the prawns served ain’t fresh at all! The prawns is soggy and does not have the sweet seafood taste that it should have. The scallop itself was okay though. 6.0/10 (the score will be much much higher if the prawns are fresh)

Prego Sunday Bubbly Brunch @ Westin Kuala Lumpur

Before I started anything, I will say, Simply the best!

Yes, Prego’s Sunday Bubbly Brunch is simply the best ever buffet I ever had! Yes, it’s also one of the most pricey buffet, but again, it’s simply the best!

Yes, it’s a brunch, but they served nice wine and champagne.

Yes, it’s a brunch, but the amount and quality of food served is way more amazing than most other buffet dinner.

And again, Yes, I came here for my Christmas Eve Dinner, which it was also called the same name with the buffet they served every Sunday.

The champagne which I forgotten the name….. Nice! Free flow of it. You also have a choice of 2 type of red wine, 2 type of white wine or beer if champagne is not your cup of tea.

Diners here are being pampered, as it’s not your traditional buffet style where you need to walk up to the counter and take your food. Neither is you given a menu to choose the food you want. Instead, once we have our seat, the waiter started to bring up foods and foods and foods.  The seafood blah blah blah soup is amazing.
