1 Malaysia Ramadhan Feast @ Chatz Brasserie, Parkroyal Hotel KL

Another round of Ramadhan feasting!...

Do take note that this is an invited review - So, here are my usual disclaimers:
1) I have not been paid to write this, but neither have I paid a cent for my meal,
2) I will still be as objective as possible re. the food/ restaurant, and
3) If I go back to the restaurant incognito and find that the food/service is horribly different from this experience, I will amend my ratings here...

How quickly time flies. An ex-colleague just reminded me that we had been trying to to arrange a Buka Puasa get together to catch up since... well, last Ramadhan...

There are of course many options being paraded in the newspapers, billboards, etc, right now - Last week, I got to check out the offering at Chatz Brasserie in the Parkroyal Hotel, located conveniently in the heart of KL's Golden Triangle Shopping area.
- Simple but comfortable - classic hotel setting:
Comfortable setting....

- A must have at any reputable hotel nowadays, fresh Oysters and prawns:
(Their theme was "1 Malaysia", so they had a range of Malay, Chinese, Indian as well as Nyonya and Western dishes)
A luxurious addition to any meal....

- Healthy Salads and Ulams to balance your meal:
Leafy veggies and herbs are good for you....

- Tantalising curries:
(Other than the usual curries and rendangs, there was also a range of delicious Nyonya recipes, taught by the talented chef Debbie Teoh,... There was a very appetising blend of aromatic spices with a hint of assam tones in the curry, and I especially liked it paired with the yummy Nasi Ulam that they had that night)
Some of the lovely, spicy dishes....

- Petai dish, for those who love these pungeant beans:
(There were also many "stalls" serving up a pretty wide variety of local favourites (Satay, Nasi Ayam, Briyani, Assam Laksa, Ayam Pansuh, etc) as well as foreign treats (Spaghetti, Grilled Lamb, Grilled Beef, etc)
Love it? Or hate it? :)....

- Desserts, both local....
One of my (many) favourites - Sago, with gula melaka and santan served at the side....

- ... and foreign:
(There was also an array of Haagen Daz ice creams for you to choose from...)
Cakes and tarts too :)....

In terms of pricing, it is reasonable, as there really is quite a variety of food to choose from:
- RM 86++ per adult,
- RM 43++ per child (4 to 11 years old).

Well, there you have it. This is probably the last Buka Puasa buffet I'll be attending this year. I hope you have lots of fun buka-ing with your family and friends.... :)
(Thanks to Lilian for the kind invitation - was really nice meeting you!)

  1. Think you need to do a Pasar Ramadhan review - which place is best to go mad with the best food. Tmn Tun?Subang? Batang Berjuntai?

  2. u know i really wonder if there are any food bloggers out there who will pay using their own money to eat a buka puasa buffet haha..its either invited or a company function.

  3. To Chindi:
    Shy to admit but I've never been to a pasar Ramadhan actually - jom? :)

    to Joe:
    I'm sure there must be. I know I would, if I actually went for buffets anymore. Not fasting so no need for me to buka puasa at a buffet... And normally I prefer a la carte :)

  4. Ya, time really flies - I can't believe Raya will be here in 3 weeks' time!

  5. OK set! next week i cari you for the Pasar action.

  6. That Sago looks simply perfect.I really want to try it!

    Cheap Holidays
