Christmas Menu at Senses, Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Last week, we went to Hilton Kuala Lumpur for a preview of their Christmas menu. While most of the eating was done in Sudu (which I shall blog about later today), we went on a "safari" around 3 more restaurants in the hotel -- Senses, Iketeru and Chynna. Our first stop was Senses, the fine dining modern Australian restaurant helmed by celebrity chef Michael Elfwing. 

Senses are offering a few menus, check out the website here for more details. The photos below are from the Senses Festive Menu priced at RM308++ for six courses.
