I Love Bubbles

Please sir, can I have some more?.........

[ BEGIN EDIT ]
(June 2009)

Despite being so expensive (and the supposed** worldwide recession), this brunch buffet is extremely popular. So please make your bookings at least 2 weeks ahead to avoid disappointment (especially if you plan to go in a big group).

** It's not that I'm trying to make a joke of it, but I am perplexed by how many people are still shopping so much (from my last visits to One Utama / Midvalley)...

PS:
(as at Jan 2010) I've heard that the price has gone up, again, to RM228++.
Happy New Year. =_=

[ END EDIT ]


What would I do if I had RM 198++ RM 228++ to spare?

If you asked me before, I may have named a couple of things I'd like to do like go for a massage... or maybe buy a new pair of shoes.... but now, I know for sure that I'd happily blow all that cash on the Sunday Bubbly Buffet Brunch at the Westin Hotel...
(*hic*)

I know, I know - It's definately a lot of money but not only is there free flow of champagne (Laurent Perrier!), wine (red & white), appletinis (yummy), etc, there's also a seemingly endless flow of freshly made pastas, pizzas and other Italian specialties....
(And mind you, the food is actually good! - unlike many other buffets)

They even have GIANT bottles of champagne ready for alcoholics like me... *grin*:
Wah - so BIG!.....

The 3 hours (11.30am to 2.30pm) that I spent there was heaven. The staff there were very attentive and it was almost like my champagne glass was bewitched! - Everytime I turned around, it was magically refilled! :) :) :)

Needless to say, the price is extremely painful to the average wallet (like mine, although I didn't pay that day - thanks R! You're such a darling)... but I will be counting the days till I can afford to go there again.

So, it's: Wonderful combination of delicious Italian food and free flow of yummy champagne and other alcoholic beverages BUT it's SOooooooo expensive :(.....

j said...

to J:
When was the last time you went? Like I said, I didn't pay that day but that's the price I remember seeing on the Westin website....
(Hmmm... let me go double check)

J said...

to J:
Yups. It's RM 198++ *sigh*.
I guess it must be because of the petrol price increase (??)....

It certainly look tempting, but the price is really killing... hmmm... when is my turn??!!! sigh... jealous...

J said...

to julian si:
Erm... thanks?
(I'm usually quite bad with tags, as in I take AGES to do it, but I'll try)
:)

to mel^^mel:
The price is super killing... :(
I think for me, probably can only go once (at most, twice) a year... Slowly save up one to two ringgit a day and you'll be able to go in no time at all. :)

Good food at a buffet? WITH free flowing champagne! I'd go for that.

J said...

to nate-n-annie:
Go, go! :)
It's so rare to have good food at a buffet. I remember biting into the grilled lamb and thinking "OMG! It's actually tender... and tasty too!"

Oh, but do remember to leave lots of space for the champagne... :)

kelly said...

hi ms.choco^^
can u recommend me
places or restaurant for couple for romantic dinner?
is it my BF bDay..and v r 19th y.o..price average is around rm200..
thx

J said...

to kelly:
Wah. Nowadays you youngsters are so much richer than I used to be at that age... :P
(But then again, with the horrid rate of inflation - 200 bucks is not that much anymore)

Anyway, it depends on what you like.. :)
(I'm not sure whether you mean 200 bucks per person or 200 bucks in total?)

Here are a few places I like:
1) Italian
a) Sassorosso: Romantic, cosy setting in a small bungalow off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng.

b) Villa Danielli: Also very romantic, but quite expensive.

c) Porto Romano: More affordable, and not as romantic (because sometimes, there are families eating here at night,.. with all their kids in tow) but the food is good - I think they serve one of the best lamb shanks in KL.

French:
a) Cafe Cafe: Romantic setting, very nice ambience.

b) Le Bouchon: Actually, I have never tried this place (although I want to soon) but my French Chinese friend says the food there is nice.

Western:
a) Bermuda & Onion: More of a casual setting but the food is nice.

I hope this helps... BTW: Have fun! *hugs* I hope you have a great celebration with your bf. :)
