Vasco’s, Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel
The great explorer Vasco de Gama is the inspiration for the name of Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel’s buffet restaurant, Vasco’s. The namesake’s devotion to traversing new territory is carried through both in design and cuisine in the all day dining concept.
Most people visit buffets for choice and unlimited helpings of food. Vasco’s however, is equally intriguing for its alluring design. A complete renovation has turned the space into a “modernist take on the urban park theme.” A vine-like trellis separates the restaurant from the lobby, allowing guests a sneak peek into the culinary playground.
A giant white installation sprouts at the entrance carrying its layers of contoured parallel lines from the floor, up to the ceiling and, branches out across the roof, much the same as an enormous tree sheltering the room. The limbs of the silhouette draw the eye to a striking chandelier made of 100s of translucent tubes hanging from above. Wall windows and skylights fill the room with happy daylight, making it a cheery place for breakfast or lunch, while in the evening, these contemporary structures glow, morphing the scene into an equally impressive dinner experience.

White curvilinear pods hold interactive cooking stations and a wonderful spread of international dishes. The smorgasbord winds across the dining area leading guests on an adventure around cuisines of the world – Western, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Italian and Malay.
|More Seating Options – rolling blinds are lowered or lifted allowing more or less direct sunlight as the day goes on|
With the Executive Chef of the Hilton KL’s rich background in pastry, the dessert counter is a dreamy start. Tiny tarts, oversized cakes and some playful child-like treats, such as giant marshmallows and cream filled lollipops, provide a colourful array for the eye and the stomach. A Malay Kuih spread, crepe station and, refrigerated counter further enhance the selection. Cold rock ice cream is a popular stand where you can customize your dessert by choosing ice cream flavours and ingredients then witness, as they’re smashed together over a chilled board, to create your own personalized treat.
Seafood, salad, sushi and cheese counters provide a wide collection of lighter options for the health conscious. The Chinese zone displays a number of hot classics and a handful of dim sum and steamed items. Indian fare too supplies multiple choices and, a carvery counter delivers aromas of roasted meats to diner’s nostrils making mouths water reflexively upon each pass. Pasta, more hot dishes and soups buff up the Western division and, a pizza oven, where both traditional and unconventional creations are whipped up, is fired up without interruption.
