The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

Last weekend, we were invited by Siew Yee, the Marketing and Communications Manager of Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside to dine in The Village, the hotel’s signature restaurant.

The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside belongs to the Accor group, a major global group in hotels. My previous visit to one of Accor’s hotel, Ibis Hotel in the UK, was quite good and they left a good impression on us. The hotel as well as the restaurant, was located on the shores of Putrajaya Lake and the architecture was stylish and provides a relaxed and leisurely feeling for the guests and customers.

The hotel was located near the Putrajaya Water Sports Complex, and The Village is the perfect location to witness major sporting events.

The alfresco restaurant was dimly lit and it provided an ideal place for a casual and romantic dinner.

As for food, The Village has a lot to offer. During the month of June, The Village had the Oyster Promotion with BBQ buffet dinner. Priced at RM89.00++ per pax, diners get to enjoy all the food photos taken in this post. We started with appetizers first, we had their prawns, scallops, oysters and mussels as pictured above.

Next, we proceeded to their BBQ counter. Here, customers can watch the chef prepare the grilled fish, chicken, sausage, satay, etc.

One can also place their order and the counter and the staff will send the food over when it has been cooked.

Grilled Seafood, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
Among all the barbequed food, our favourite was the grilled cray fish, the meat was grilled to perfection and it was fresh and tasty. We thought the chicken and the sausages were quite good as well, especially when dipped in their Portuguese sauce.

Grilled Prawns and Crabs, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
The prawns and the crabs were quite good as well. My better half commented that he enjoyed the beef satay a lot.

Other than that we also had their Asian specialties. Pictured above was the Cajun Chicken Breast with Soft Polenta. The chicken was moist and soft, it was quite good.

Baked Potatoes, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
The potatoes were quite good as well. Other than the photos above, they also serve Fried Rice, Fried Noodles with Seafood and Ratatouille. We thought the Ratatouille was quite sour and appetising.

Various sauces, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
The restaurant offered a variety of specialty sauces to go with their food. Out of all the sauces, our favourite was the Portuguese sauce, it was slightly spicy and very appetising. The peanut, mushroom and the sambal sauce was quite good as well, depending on individual preferences.

Fish, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
The Pullman Hotel was crafted to depict architecture and ambiences that are distinctively Malay, Chinese and Indian, the food in The Village as well did the same to express the diversity of race and culture in Malaysia. We started with the Indian food counter. The fish, pictured above, was simple and nice.

Rogan Josh, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
Their Rogan Josh was quite good and decent. We also took some Murtabak (stuffed pancake) and Roti to go along with the lamb.

Fish Balls, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
The Chinese food stall offered a number of fish and meat balls for Lok Lok.

Red Bean Bun and Lotus Bun, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
There were also Steamed Dim Sum and Bao to choose from. The pink one was the Red Bean Bao whereas the white was the Lotus Bao.

Aglio Olio, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
They also had a Western food stall which offers various types of Pasta. The Aglio Olio was slightly oily to our liking. However, the pasta in cream sauce was quite nice and cheesy.

Desserts, The Village, Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside
Finally, we had some sweets to end the meal. Other than the puddings above, the restaurant also served pancakes, Ais Kacang (shaved ice dessert) and various cakes.

The food was alright overall and we thought the ambiance of the restaurant was very quiet and peaceful and it was nice to have a walk in the hotel area after dinner. For more information about the hotel and restaurant, please visit their website.

Putrajaya is so pretty at night. It’s a shame it’s so hot out there. I’d love to spend more time running and cycling outdoors.

Simple Person: If you do, try it with the various sauces! Was favourite was the Portuguese sauce.

ai wei: We do admit, the view was spectacular =)

The Yum List: Haha, yes Putrajaya is absolutely scorching in the afternoon. Which is why the Village is only open for dinner as it wont be comfortable to dine by the lakeside during a hot day.
