Nook Dinner Buffet...for a Bachelorette @ Aloft Hotel Sentral KL

Another one off the market! My dear friend whom I have known pretty much most of my life is getting married! Upon the confirmation with a red bomb, we automatically hollered for a bachelorette dinner of course! What are girl friends for right? As the group has mellowed into motherhood, we decided to have a classy and sensible session sans the clubbing and stripper or kids (I know how much we are missing alright)

Located strategically at KL Sentral, Aloft Hotel was a fair venue as the girls came from all over Klang Valley. One even made it fresh out from KLIA to the dinner that night. As for me, my favourite way to beat the traffic and avoid perpetual rounds of carpark search is by taking the train.

The theme for the evening was 'Bling Bling'. A fun opportunity for all the girls to dress up and shine. We got Michelle a little tiara complete with a veil tagging along and a sash that labels her the bride-to-be. Michelle has always been a girly girl and when she said she felt like a princess that night we felt pretty sure we were the best girl friends in town...haha! Balloons and other decorations were help set up by the friendly waiters which was a big favour for us in evening dresses and heels.

Be sure not to skip the appetizers as they are interestingly created with permutations of cold dishes that will certainly attract your eyes. Cold platter was also fresh and sweet.

The restaurant's local delights came complete with local condiments and flavouring like the cincalok and budu. There were a variety of curries to satisfy your spicy palate. They were not quite worthy of tummy space as they were nothing short of ordinary. I remember my jaws were working quite a bit on the beef too.

The Western side featured beef, fish fillet and chicken. My favourite of the platters is the fish fillet which makes a communal dish when chatting with friends.

The oriental corner was easy to spot with chinese steam baskets containing little bowls of goodness. Open the lids with anticipation of what is steaming underneath. Nutritious combinations unveil after the steam has dissipated. Pick your choice carefully as they are piping hot!

The sumptuous lamb shank got my attention for sure. The reddish meat beckoned but it was not as tender as it looked and a tad dry. It was condoned however, as the meat was flavourful without the odour.

Desserts made us make a point to save tummy space for sweets! Choices of desserts were aplenty from confectioneries to the local ice kacang. Clean your palates with not only sweet but colourful delights.

Nook perfected the night with a custom made cake for us to congratulate Michelle with. With this, we wish her a sweet beginning with many more delicious life events to come. The evening was articulated with lots of chat and laughter. Of course, what is a bachelorette without the traditional truth or dare game (at minimum) that not only kept us entertained but also selected lucky guests over the other tables.

Nook also serves breakfast and lunch. To me, it has good ambiance, location and variety of food to cater for events and family meals alike.
Congratulations Michelle!
