Eating in Kuala Lumpur - Sudu Coffee House Hilton KL

Hilton Kuala Lumpur at KL Sentral is one of the best hotels in KL as far as food option is concerned. They have an amazing choice of F&B outlets - from casual to formal, and Asian fusion to high-end Western. 

Sudu is the main coffee house, though the hotel prefers to call it a restaurant. The design is pan-Asian,with an open kitchen concept. There are different corners to choose from, from an open common dining area in the middle to a more private elevated lounge area. There is also a private dining room big enough for around 10 persons, though it is entirely encased in glass. 

Most diners come here for the buffet dinner, which also comes with a selection of main course. The buffet is divided into several sections with Asian and Western selections, a large selection of different types of cheese and cold cuts, and an endless selection of desserts.

The buffet theme changes from time to time. When I went, it was more of a seafood theme, which suited me fine. However, the highlight was the cheese selection which had a variety of interesting cheeses from all over the world. There was also a fine selection of different olive oils and condiments to go with bread. Great !

After all that, the main course usually comes as a bit of a let down. I ordered the oven-baked sea bass. It was topped with a baked mussel in a herb crust, and pumpkin puree on the side. The fish was a bit bland, and the pumpkin puree not a very good match. I guess it's back to the buffet !

As I said earlier, the dessert selection was really good. By that time though, my stomach was having a bit of a protest. I decided to go for the petits fours. I must say that Hilton always seems to excel at pastries, and these were all very good.
