The recently-opened Doubletree by Hilton Shah Alam is all set to celebrate its first Chinese New Year at their Makan Kitchen. To usher in the Year of the Water Rabbit, the culinary team is going all out to ensure some really abundant feasting with masterfully-crafted festive dishes from 21 January 2023 till 5 February 2023.
At Makan Kitchen, their festive buffets offer a plethora of traditional Lunar New Year favourites as well as featuring regular local dishes. The highlights of the buffets are their exceptional Giant Grouper (Loong Tan), fresh Mud Crabs, Yee Sang Station, traditional dishes with fish maw, sea cucumber, grilled seafood with dips and fresh seafood on ice featuring crabs, prawns, mussels etc. We absolutely loved the Giant Grouper which the chef just poached the fresh slices and then topped with some superior soya sauce. We lost count of the number of times we went back for this!
We also thoroughly enjoyed the piping hot seafood soup with baby abalones, the braised sea cucumber, HK noodles and all their fresh prawns dishes. Their other local Indian and Malay dishes are really good too – don’t skip their Slipper Lobster Masala, Mutton Varuval, Nasi Biryani, Lamb Masala and a host of other fragrant spicy items. Special mention goes to their lovely salad bar which showcases fresh hydroponic greens on the bar – you just pluck/cut them to add to your salad!
The desserts bar feature a focused range of sweets, all of which are worthy of your stomach space! We could not fault any of the pretty pastries and cake – all crafted with delicate skills, both in terms of aesthetics and taste!
This festive buffet at Makan Kitchen in Doubletree by Hilton Shah Alam is one of the best we’ve had – fresh ingredients, good value and so tasty!
