10 Best Christmas Day Dinner Ideas in Kuala Lumpur 2020
Where to celebrate Christmas in KL for 2020? It’s a question we all ask ourselves every year, do we invite Family and Friends round with the hidden fear of getting Turkey right especially with the CMCO/RMCO or should we just save all the hassle and buy in a pre-cooked one with all the trimmings? On the other hand, we could just gather everyone in limited numbers of course and head out to our favourite restaurant.
So at The City List, we have decided that now would be as good a time as any to let you know some places that are offering Christmas dinner in Kuala Lumpur 2020 plus we have some options to order in Delivery and let someone else take the responsibility of getting that Turkey cooked just right. Whatever you do this year, we have put together this helpful guide for a Kuala Lumpur Christmas in 2020.
