The spread at The Westin delivers both in taste and choice.
I was there 2 years back and while the spread was fantastic, some of the food didn’t quite impress. This year, I almost enjoyed everything, especially so the DESSERTS.
This “dessert room” is like a child’s dream come true.
Here the in-house made ice cream beckons even before I had my mains. Offering a total of about 5 different flavours (yam, mango, sesame, raspberry, chocolate), these ice cream are huge in flavour and delightfully creamy yet not too rich.
The amazing array of baked goods, the riot of colours from the fruit display and the well made (most of the ones I tried are good!) desserts are worth the calories.
With so many choices from the hot food section, it’s a shame I couldn’t muster more tummy space for desserts but trust me, I sampled almost everything! 🙂
Doesn’t help the diet when the desserts are so pretty too! 🙂
While desserts at most buffets can be stingy on the ingredients, nothing of that applies here.
Every dessert was loaded with generous toppings of cream or fruits or chocolate!
The traditional kuih are top notch too.
Kids are kept happy too!
And this is officially the best fruits station in any hotel buffets that I’ve seen!
Coming back to the hot food, I reckon that everyone should start with the lamb. Well at least that has always been my modus operandi.
Though Westin doesn’t offer a whole lamb, the was satisfyingly tender and tasty to please. I’m a very protein-based eater (exception made for desserts) so meats, fish and greens are always my focus.
Freshly grilled seafood and beef fillets cooked ala-minute are great protein options.
The finger-licking BBQ Style Braised Short Ribs.
I love a good grilled (whole) fish anytime! 🙂
This is the Roasted Warm Barramundi, Warm Potato Salad.
Not many (or none so far that I know of) serves duck at the buffet line. This roast ducky is super juicy and perfect with the fried mantaos.
Not a fan of duck? Plenty of foul to go around .Stay safe with the chickens then. 🙂
In addition to the variety of hot dishes, there is also a Malaysian Noodle live cooking station offering a myriad of noodles ranging from; Mee Rebus “Tulang”, Laksa Johor, Nyonya Curry Laksa, Spaghetti with Sweet Potato Spiced Gravy to Yellow Mee and Spiced Turmeric Seafood Broth with all the traditional condiments to go.
The row of large woks keeping the flavourful curries and dishes hot are a must-try. Diners are spoilt for choice with 14 types of renowned authentic Malaysian Hot Dishes cooked and served in a “Kuali Tebal” – Daging Gulai Kawah Nusantara, Gulai Ayam Kampung Pucuk Ubi Kayu, Assam Pedas Ikan Pari, Sambal Paru, Kari Kepala Ikan Kari, Gulai Nenas Ikan Masin and Taugeh Ipoh Masak Lemak Putih.
The spread is very much traditional and local delicacies skewed so we have the Indian, Malay and Chinese sections as the common case with all buka puasa buffets now.
Chinese: Cashew Chicken, fried rice, dim sum, fried dory with siamese chilli, fried carrot cake, etc.
Indian Odyssey Delight: Naan, Tandoori delights, Fish Tikka, Lamb Rogan Josh, Pakora, etc.
There’s also an entirely section for the soupy stuff, and not entirely common ones either – take your pick from Sup Soto Ayam Begedil, Szechuan Hot & Sour Soup, Indian Rasam Lautan Sulu, Sup Kambing Mamak Berempah, Cream of Mushroom and the “SuperLambuk” the Ramadan Specialty Porridge.
We have pasta (Italian) cooked to order too.
Appetisers of local salads and rojak.
A little bit of South American represented by Mexico.
I wasn’t joking when I said the spread is impressive right?
Sounds good? Well, it is!
