Vasco's at Hilton Kuala Lumpur is one of the most recommended restaurants in Kuala Lumpur offering Ramadan Buffet. Served at sundown during the holy month of Ramadan, the buffet features classic Malay dishes as well as specialties from different regions of Malaysia.

I was able to experience the Ramadan Buffet at Vasco's when I stayed at Hilton Kuala Lumpur back in June 2019. This year's theme was Santapan Di Raja showcasing the royal cuisines of Malaysia's monarchies. Traditional Malay songs and dance performances also added to the festive atmosphere.

The highlight of the Ramadan Buffet was the Kambing Panggang Berempah Sangai (roasted whole lamb marinated in spices) paired with Nasi Briyani (Indian spiced rice). Below are some of the dishes I tried that evening.
