I have heard of Venezuela since young because they produced many Worlds’ most beautiful pageants queens. I was always wonder how come they are so slim like a model and yet pretty, and I guess it must be related to their food somehow. When Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre launched the Venezuela Gastronomic Festival last week, I can’t wait to check it out myself.
In celebration of 10th Venezuelan Week in Malaysia, the Embassy of the Bolivaran Republic of Venezuela and Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre has launched the 10-day Venezuela Gastronomic Festival. The Ambassador, H.E. Manuel Guzman has officially inaugurated the festival on October 22 2015.
The aim of the festival is to enhance the public image of Venezuela and to introduce its arts, culture and food into the Malaysia market. It is also to promote Venezuela as an exciting travel destination.
They have invited 2 handsome guest chefs from Venezuela, Enrique Linardo (left) and Federico Tischler (right) to cook at Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre during the Venezuela Gastronomic Festival. Having deep passion for cooking since young, both chefs have been cooking up a storm in the culinary scene of Venezuela and the United States, and have also worked extensively in Europe and South America.

Now, during the Venezuela Gastronomic Festival, lavish and delicious Venezuelan buffet dinner will be served at Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre’s Eccucino. The restaurant is decorated with a Venezuelan inspired décor to truly set the scene and to create an authentic Venezuelan experience.
The chefs have specially created the menu which includes emblematic Venezuelan flavours such as;
Arepa (Cornmeal cake)
Empanada (Deep fried stuffed corn flour patties)
A traditional Venezuela Plate of food - Coconut rice, black beans, shredded beef and fried bananas.
Arroz Con Coco (Coconut rice)
Hervido de Costilla (Rib and oxtail soup)
Carne mechada (Shredded beef Venezuelan style) – We highly recommended this dish because it taste superb! The shredded beef is juicy and yummy!
Asado Negro (Rosted beef)
Polvorosa de Pollo (Chicken pot pie)
Skate fish stew
Quesillo (Caramel flan)
There are a lot more dishes which made up a scrumptious and delicious buffet. Overall, I find Venezuela food suit Malaysian taste perfectly! They use similar ingredients like us and their food is as flavorful as us.
