A Special Christmas at Sedona

By Lwin Mar Htun 18 December 2018

YANGON—Sedona Hotel Yangon is one of a number of locations offering special festive dining and events for the upcoming Christmas and New Year festive period. Its renowned restaurants D’Cuisine, Du Fu and Orzo are offering a Merry Menu for families, friends and colleagues to get together and enjoy their tantalizing dishes for the month of December.

D’Cuisine will be serving its wide-ranging selection of well-known international dishes with a suitable festive theme. Highlights of the menu include grilled prawn, grilled mutton, crab soup and, of course, whole roasted turkey.

Their popular buffet, priced at $33 per person on weekdays and $36 at weekends, features special Christmas dishes. A whole buffet counter is dedicated to Christmas-style dishes and diners have already been queueing for the roast turkey—including me.

The roasted turkey, served by the slice by a dedicated chef, should be paired with traditional accompaniments like roast potatoes and Brussels sprouts. The turkey meat is very tender and the taste is perfect, even without seasoning or sauces. With Christmas around the corner, it provides the perfect Christmas feeling.

The other international dishes available at the buffet are as delicious as ever and have earned a well-deserved reputation year-round as one of Yangon’s famous hotel buffets. All the ingredients are fresh and the food tastes great but there are more meat choices than vegetables, so vegetarians watch out!

The grilled mutton and beef servings are also favorites of mine. They are cooked to the customer’s requested specification by the masterful grilling chefs, giving them a hot and freshly-cooked flavor.

This buffet allows you to truly indulge as it comes with a free-flow of wine, beer, and soft drinks included in the price. The high quality of foods they serve means the price is totally worth it for spending the special Christmas moment with a loved one or family.

As they do every year, Sedona Hotel will celebrate the ringing in of the new year with a lavish New Year’s Eve party which this year, titled Be Dazzled, is expected to be the biggest in town.

The party will showcase international entertainment with tango, jazz, Broadway and Hollywood performances as well as some of the most famous local performers headlined by Ni Ni Khin Zaw and the music band Oxygen, who will welcome in 2019 with the guests.

“Sedona Hotel Yangon will provide guests with great entertainment featuring international and local artists, and DJs to be held at the spacious and luxurious poolside area of the hotel,” said Mr. Mok Kok Meng, general manager of Sedona Hotel Yangon.

The special dinner buffet set for the Be-Dazzled party will include French oysters, lobsters, Alaska crab legs, abalone, suckling pig and roasted whole lamb leg.

As well as the special food options, the party will have a lucky draw and other exciting surprises. The hotel’s website has more information on tickets and other details.
