Christmas 2016 by according to Ing

Hi there lovelies!

How has everyone been? I have really slacked off with my blogging lately but I do have a legitimate reason for that. Over the holiday season I was really lucky to get time off work to go back to Kuala Lumpur for Christmas and New Years with my family AND I went over to spend some time in Thailand with PJ as well. I was planning on blogging about my entire holiday but I ended up just taking the time to enjoy it and the company of my family and friends. I did however document how we spent Christmas and will show you some of the goodies we ate that day.

Christmas lunch 2016

In my family Christmas has always been a big deal – we have family all over the world and Christmas would be the only time we could all reunite in KL and spend about a blissful fortnight in each other’s company. This year however most of my relatives overseas couldn’t make it back for the holiday season so the family of four (Grandma, Dad, Mum and I) decided to have our own little lunch at Ante a famous pork steak restaurant in KL.

Rosy Lychee Fizz (Price RM14)

Drinks: For drinks Grandma and the parents ordered the usual soft drinks and all but I ordered the Rosy Lychee Fizz and it was really good! Cold, refreshing and definitely not overpoweringly sweet or artificial tasting.

Food: We first ordered a Caesar salad to share which was pretty big and decent sized, Dad’s main was crispy bacon on mashed potatoes, mine was a pork steak with mashed potatoes and Grandma’s was a pork chop with chips. I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE fatty pork – which exactly was what I got with my steak. It was so juicy, tasty and the mash was all buttery, warm and smooth. Loved it!

Overall I’d rate this place: 

Ambiance/Environment – 3.5/5 The place has a minimalist approach to its decor but they could really up their game since it’s Christmas!

Food – 4/5 Loved how for a change we had pork instead of the usual Xmas meats like turkey, roast etc.

Service – 3.5/5 Good service overall but nothing to shout praises about.

Overall experience – 4/5 While the pricing of the food leans towards middle/high prices (depending on what you order) you do get decent sized portions of food that tastes good and is a bang for your buck. The staff were generally polite and attentive and the place has a lovely chilled out vibe to it- perfect for hangouts with friends or family. It’d make any pork lover happy!

Christmas Dinner 2016

For Christmas dinner Mum invited the family in KL and some family friends over for a small get together. I wish I could take credit for the cooking but I only helped make some Hors d’Oeuvres as seen below…

Super simple cream cheese on crackers with either olives, dried herbs or a dollop of sweet chili sauce on it

Tuna and tomato pasta

The dishes were really tasty and pretty simple but even as a small group we couldn’t finish it all. We had plenty of leftovers for a meal or two the next day. Good food and good company is really all I can ask for on Christmas. Safe to say I had an amazing holiday and hope you all had one too!

What do you guys eat for your Christmas lunch/dinner? Feel free to share in the comments section. Anyway that’s a wrap for now! Take care lovelies and I hope to post more this year.
