Prosperity Lunar New Year Buffet @ Ibis Styles Kota Kinabalu

Chinese New Year is coming and we’re so thankful that Ibis Styles Kota Kinabalu invited us for a food review for their Prosperity Lunar Buffet dinner at Gabion Bistro last night.

Let’s take a look at the menu details:

The buffet will be available every Friday to Sunday starting this 1st of February until 19th February. The prices details are stated in the picture below:

We started with taking photos and then tossing the Yee Sang (Prosperity Toss) a symbol of welcoming prosperity. Each of the condiments has a meaning to it.

The higher you toss, the better luck you’ll get. 😁

The better the messy, the better the grounds of well wishes covering your life. 😉

Moving forward, I don’t have a picture of the Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Chinese Herbs but man it was so good! So comforting and truly emphasised my hungry level – need more yummy food lol.

Some of their signature dish are Roasted Peking Duck, Golden Yam Ring with Kung Pao Chicken and Kam Heong Crab with White Clams. There is so much more!

Love the Kung Pao Chicken!

Personally, I really love this Black Pepper Lamb Shoulder! Tender and flavourful! Great pair with that Steam Jasmine Rice. mmm mmm!

Stir-fried Snapper with Chili Bean Sauce

Steamed Chicken with Ham & Tofu – this was good too!

They also served some traditional snacks such as Deep-fried Sweet Sticky Rice with Yam and Sweet Potatoes , Deep-fried Banana with Caramel Sauce and Fish & Prawn Crackers.

And of course my most favourite part of any buffet, has got to be the desserts station!

Double Chocolate Cheesecake – soooo good!

Mango Mousse Cheesecake – I got nothing else to say other than ‘soooo good’ lol!

Buffet was good, happy tummy! Thanks Ibis Styles KK!

Winter Wonders Christmas Buffet Dinner – Food Review

Last Thursday we (the bloggers and media influencers) were invited to a Christmas buffet dinner at Ibis Style Hotel Kota Kinabalu. Thank you so much for the invitation and for the food of course.

Winter Wonders Christmas Buffet Dinner

25 December 2018 / 6pm to 10.30pm

Early Bird Price (until 21 December):

Rm65 (adult) & Rm35 (child/senior)

Normal Price:

Rm98 (adult) & Rm53 (child/senior)

Some of their traditional Christmas favorites menu are Roasted Whole Turkey, Yule Log Cake and Yorkshire Pudding. Let’s see some pictures and see if you’re dreaming of it or not 😉

Turkey, Chicken and Yorkshire Pudding. Not in the picture: Beef Wellington

My favourite from the starter was definitely the Smoked Duck Salsa on top of that Garlic Bread. mmm yum!

Oh i love these Beef Penne Pasta. Some of my friends said the Lasagna were good too. Aaah too bad I didn’t take it.

I love the lamb shoulder too but maybe a bit salty for me.

Believe it or not, it was my first time having a roasted turkey! Lol. Still prefer the normal chicken though LOL! It was good anyway, served with 3 different gravy (cranberry sauce, roasted turkey sauce, and mushroom sauce). Buttt, I was kind of hoping there’s mashed potatoes but there isn’t. So, baked sweet potatoes were fine I guess.

And then of course my favorite part of the dinner, cakes and cakes!! They got Blackforest Cake, Christmas Fruit Cake, Yule Log Cake, Strawberry Cake, Mango Cheesecake, Carrot Cheesecake, Double Chocolate Cake and cookies! Well, as you can see I only had pictures of gingerbread cookies. I loveeee all of the cakes, I can’t choose one!

I definitely had a happy tummy that night. So thankful.
