Merry Christmas & an early Happy New Years wishes to all KayaButterToast’s fans and readers. Many thanks for the support all these whiles even though we have been inactive for the past 2 years+.

Assorted Fruit Platter

Definitely the grapes. Kaya’s favourite. It’s quite rare to see grapes in buffets. Appreciate it. Loved the decorations.

Seafood on Ice and Selection of Sashimi (Tuna & Salmon)

One of the main focus of most of the bloggers. Too bad, KayaButter are not a big fan of these. Feedback from other bloggers is that they are decent. 🙂

Stuffed Squid with Otak-Otak and Spicy Peanut Sauce

It’s a rather novelty fusion of squid and otak-otak, one of Malaysian’s traditional dishes. Otak means brain in Malay and this is due to the resemblance of the dish with brains. Hence, the name otak-otak. It’s a grilled fish cake with spices and tapioca. Taste-wise, it’s quite decent.

Beef Steak with Tonkatsu Sauce

The beef is a tad bit chewy and dry to KayaButter’s preference. Yet, the tonkatsu sauce kills it. We loved the sauce and it adds great flavour to the beef and makes the dish nicer.

Wok Venison with Ginger and Spring Onions

It’s rather interesting to find deer’s meat in buffets. In case for those who don’t know, venison means deer’s meat. It’s good.

This soup received rave reviews among the food bloggers. Very flavourful soup and for seafood lovers, this is your one bowl of heaven. Thumbs up!

One of the best Christmas cookies. We loved the crunchiness and the aftertaste of this cookie. It’s a must try. 🙂

Loved the macarons. It’s not really too sweet. It’s approved by Butter who is not really a fan of very sweet stuffs.
