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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
