It’s that time of the year again where I realized I have not used up most of my Starwood Privilege Coupons that were going to expire at the end of July. Flipping through the vouchers I decided to use the complimentary Buffet Lunch for two at Le Meridien KL when meeting with Janice and her brother Jordan.
This was my first Buffet Lunch at Le Meridien’s Latest Recipe and to my surprise it was actually better than all the previous occasions I’ve visited for dinner. Unlike in Thailand where the Lunch Buffets are usually smaller than Dinner, at Le Meridien KL it looked exactly like Dinner. The layout was impressive with several open kitchens each serving a themed Cuisine that included Japanese (Sushi, Teppanyaki, Sashimi), Chinese (Noodles, Dim Sum, Chicken Rice), Malay (Grilled Meats and Seafood, Curries, Rice), Italian (Pastas, Carving Station) and Indian (Curries, Naan, Briyani) in addition to the usual Cold Seafood (Mussels, Prawns, Oysters), Salad and Dessert Station.
The quality of the food was also very good. Favorites of mine included Salmon Sashimi, Fresh Oysters, Chicken Teppanyaki, Tandoori Chicken, Indian Curries and cooked to order Pasta.
The only thing we found disappointing was the dessert. Despite the myriad of desserts that included a number of Cakes, Tarts, Ice Cream, Waffles, Malaysian Desserts and Chocolate Fondue there wasn’t any that we liked. Most of the cakes were bland with the Waffles dense and a little chewy.
White Chocolate Mousse Cake
The price if I’m not mistaken for lunch is the same as Dinner. However if the quality of most of their dishes were consistently this good, I would rather come in during Lunch, leaving me some time to work off the food in evening ☺.
