An Italian Christmas at Prego @ The Westin Kuala Lumpur


A Mischievous Fun at Prego with Bubbalicious Christmas Buffets




Festive seasons are the perfect excuse to indulge and pop open the bubbly… after all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year to celebrate with family, friends and loved ones. This festive month, The Westin Kuala Lumpur is offering lots of festive deliciousness with an array of different feast from different cuisines in all their restaurants. Whether one choose to dine Italian, Chinese, Latin or a little of everything, there’s something scrumptious happening at all the hotel’s restaurants in December.



We visited Prego, the hotel’s Italian restaurant famed for their Sunday Bubbalicious Brunch to check out what this Christmas and New Year has to offer. Prego is a multi-award winning ‘Ristorante Italiano’ where the artistic flavours of Italy come to life. The multi-level restaurant has an open live kitchen set with an inside and outside dining area. The earthy and warm themed interiors are brighten up by the spots of colors from the various hanging lights.




Italian Chef Vincenzo Sirna and team has set a flamboyant spread of Italian delicacies to satisfy even the most discerning Italian diner. The plethora of Italian spread with over 100 items atop the buffet spread includes elaborated Christmas dishes, gorgeous pasta, festive wood-fired pizzas and heart-warming desserts. It’s a true Italian festive extravaganza that will have you say ‘Mamma Mia’!


If you opt for the free flow Moët & Chandon Champagne, you will definitely be having a bubby good time with the premium champagne and the Italian feast!


Cheers to the festive season!



Do start the feast the Italian way with a large spread of Antipasto. Chef Vincenzo has gone all out and whip up a list of scrumptious antipasto of Squid Ink Arancini witch Crab Sauce, Quiche with Italian Lamb Sausage and Radicchio Trevisano, Vine Ripened Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella Salad with Basil Pesto Emulsion, Black Angus Beef Carpaccio, Smoked Duck with Lentils, Seared Albacore Tuna with Borlotti Beans and Italian Parsley Sauce, Green Asparagus with Black Truffle and Parmigiano Reggiano Crackling, Italian Christmas Salad and more.
