Traditional or with a twist, here is where you can find the best Christmas feast

It’s the season of gifting and feasting as Santa swings into town. Have you reserved for Christmas dinner to mark the beginning of the holiday season and the end of 2021? 

Customarily taking place on the eve and the evening of the auspicious day, Christmas dinner is notable for being substantial and rich. It varies between regions where cultural influences take precedence. This naturally translates into what makes it onto the dining table.  

In Malaysia, a melting pot of cultures, Christmas dinner means anything that you may take a fancy to. While roast turkey, gingerbread, panettone and pudding are expected, many restaurants have adapted their offerings to entice many diners who simply view Christmas as a cultural celebration. An excuse for gluttony? 

Here’s where to get the best Christmas lunch and dinner in KL for 2021:

Bask in the celebratory spirit with classics including Honey Glazed Spice Brined Roast Turkey, Spring Lamb Shoulder Braised in Moroccan Spices, Turkey Roulade with Sage Stuffing, Australian Prime Rib Slow Roasted with Mustard Jus, served with Yorkshire Pudding and Confit Duck Leg with Raisin Red Cabbage. Diners can tuck into a sweet ending with Christmas Yule Log Cake, Panettone Pudding, Traditional Fruitcake, Stollen Bread and more.
