Cristallo Di Luna ~ Christmas Eve Buffet Spread @Pacific Regency Hotel Suites Kuala Lumpur


Set For A Glittering Escapade

Celebrate a Jolly Good Christmas Eve with Pacific Regency Hotel Suites

Dining way above ground level seems to be a trend these days with contemporary restaurants serving a view to go with the meal. Those who have never been to Cristallo Di Luna at Pacific Regency Kuala Lumpur, should definitely pay this fine dining restaurant a visit. The view of Kuala Lumpur from the restaurant alone is quite breathtaking.   

Fine Dining At Its Best 

The vague reflection of those brightly-lit high rise office buildings makes it as somewhat romantic escapade for modern couples. 

The modern skyline complementing the relaxing ambience of the poolside restaurant is perfect for couples to celebrate special occasion or for festive celebration.  

 Perfect dining experience set amid a lovely view

Executive Chef Eddie Yap with Auntie Lilly ~ FollowMeToEatLa
In the spirit of Christmas, the culinary experts, headed by Executive Chef Eddie Yap has planned an expansive spread of classic and festive favourites to delight diners. The highlight of the buffet was the serving of the ONE AND ONLY Roasted Free Range Capon Chicken in TOWN. 

 Media Preview Spread

 Roasted Free Range Capon Chicken 

The benefits of the special Capon Chicken is that it's a Free Range Capon bred without the usage of hormones, artificial growth enhancer, preservatives and antibiotics. Executive Chef Eddie shared that the Capon chicken are fed with 100% natural feeds, so diners can be rest assured of a  all-natural, well-bred and range free tender chicken meat.   

Star of The Night ~ 
Roasted Capon Chicken with Giblet Gravy & Cranberry Compote

During the media preview, we were served with Chef Eddie's succulent Roasted Capon Chicken. Our tasting set consists of roasted capon chicken, light seasoned with salt and pepper and roasted till perfection. Served with sides of roasted vegetables, braised red cabbage together with cranberry compote to give it a flavourful taste and chestnut stuffing while drenched in savoury giblet gravy.

Simple Dish ~ Excellent in its Execution

I really enjoyed eating the capon chicken as it was more tender and flavourful compared to rooster meat, which can be quite gamy. Capons offer a richer taste and lots of meat to go around the table.Considered by many people to be a boutique and old fashion sort of food, capon is larger than a chicken, a bit smaller than a turkey, but more flavourful than either. 

Full breasted with tender, juicy, flavourful meat that's well suited to roasting, truly delicious roasted and makes it an excellent choice to be traditionally served at Christmas besides turkey. 

Thumbs up for the giblet gravy too. It was absolutely delicious. Gravy is everything. You can have a perfect turkey for Christmas with luscious mashed potatoes, but if you don’t have a dark, decadent gravy to spoon over the top, what’s the point of even living?  Okay, so maybe that’s a little dramatic.

Anyway, Chef Eddie did great with the superb giblet gravy, making it all from scratch with the choicest pieces of the bird, is the queen of gravies. So full of wonderful flavour from the giblets and drippings. Making good gravy isn’t difficult but it's just takes patience, perseverance, and the sheer will to make gravy so good, Salute chef for this!


Apart from the main attraction, we also enjoyed a bowl of Roasted Pumpkin with Sunflower Seed Soup prior to our chicken dish as a starter.  
Roasted Pumpkin with Sunflower Seed Soup

Good choice to start our meal with a hearty and healthy soup. My favourite, in fact. I like the smooth and creamy flavour of rich pumpkin with light cream. A tummy comforting bowl of pumpkin soup, and I would gladly slurp up if they offer me a second bowl! 

Be sure to keep some space for Chef Eddie's mouth-watering desserts, that are set up in a candy wonderful theme, which includes cakes, gingerbread and cookies. A Christmas dinner will not be complete without the Yule Log Cake, and here they have the Chocolate Yule Log Cake, apart from the Christmas Fruit Cake, Apple Crumble with Vanilla Sauce, Italian Tiramisu in Shooter, and Thai Rainbow Jelly in Shooter Glass.
