The last Ramadan buffet I had at GTower was back in 2011. I was glad to be able to preview it again this year as I have not been back since then.
This year, their media preview of the buffet spread was overall better in variety and taste. There were many things that I liked; such as the curries (all creamy, rich and tasty), the sup ekor (oxtail soup) and the Bubur Lambuk; nicely spiced and flavourful.
A fan of satay, the skewers here certainly didn’t disappoint as they were substantially meaty. I hate skinny skewers.
Roast lamb leg or roast whole lamb is always the highlight for me at Ramadan Buffets and it does make it seems more worth the price paid doesn’t it? 🙂
Most buffets would have a fresh/grill seafood station but that night we had a whole baked fish instead. The first one was overcooked but that minor oversight was fixed when they serve the second fish.
The cold salads, raw Malay salads (kerabu) as well as all condiments of sambals as expected of a buka puasa buffet are reassuringly present.
The soups with house baked bread rolls, buns, loaves and breadsticks are worth the calories while the lemang and Mee Rebus are good options for carbohydrates. I did had a bowl of the Mee Rebus (the first picture in this post) and I found it decent enough to satisfy my mee rebus cravings.
I remember enjoying the Malay kuih during the 2011 ramadan buffet and it was just as good this year.
Other desserts such as cakes, puddings, tarts and mousses ensures a sweet ending to the feast. Frankly this being a preview means the spread you see here are probably about 50% of the actual offerings during the Ramadan month itself. From what I have sampled, the ramadan buffet at GTower is worth serious consideration if you’re in the KL city area.
Drinks include coffee, tea, cold sweet beverages but the one thing that I never failed to indulge in during any ramadan feast is the ice kacang!
The ice kacang station is normally DIY. And with DIY means I can add whatever and everything I wish!
Mine is usually laden with corn, jelly and nuts with ample gula melaka and evaporated milk.
And if there is ice-cream, I’ll top it up with a few scoops! However no ice-cream was in sight that night so I added fruits instead! 🙂
The Ramadan Buffet @GTower Hotel is priced at RM 90++ per adult and RM 45++ per child (ages 7 to 12 ) while kids under 6 years old will eat for free.
