The ‘Season of Splendor’ in the Heart of the City

This coming year-end holiday celebration, Makan Kitchen at the DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru presents to you plenty of delicacies for everyone

The gingerbread house and lots of sweets are ready for you this joyful season

A major part of any holiday enjoyment has to be the food and especially now since the festive season is coming soon. While preparing festive meals is part of joyful giving, it can also be time-consuming especially when you have segments of people to celebrate with – colleagues, friends etc. 

To that, DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru has prepared a Season of Splendor buffet at their famed Makan Kitchen that serves an array of dishes, suiting everyone’s taste buds. 

A slice of Beef Wellington for the festive feel

In comes North Indian mutton dish called the Rogan Josh and Kofta, Malay-style Tulang Rusuk Belado (Chilli Ribs) and Makan Kitchen’s famous Chinese New Year’s Treasure Pot filled with seafood specials made it to their aisle of food as well this season! 

Tempted to have a go on the variety of delicacies, I filled up my plate quickly with appetisers like the fresh Beetroot Curlax Salmon Graylax and Beef slices. 

My favourite had to be the sumptuous Beef Wellington and of course, to get the Christmas season going for my tummy, I had the Roasted Sage marinated Turkey with sauce and discovered that having Tandoori Chicken with mint sauce on the side is perfect as well.

Indulge in sumptuous Indian delicacies such as Rogan Josh or Kofta

The sweet side is filled with classic Gingerbread, Macarons and a variety of cakes. The one that I enjoyed so much was the Apple Cinnamon Mousse, a joy for everyone to share as it’s easy on the teeth and fun on the tongue!
