Ramadhan Buffet 2012 : The Mill, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur

** For more Ramadhan reviews click HERE –> Ramadhan Buffets – Where’s your favourite?

Some people asked me, after eating almost 15 Ramadhan buffets in almost all the hotels in KL, which is the best?
It was a imminent question really, one that I foresee to be one of my blog’s FAQ of the year. After all, it’s understandable that most people would want to head over to the best of the best Ramadhan buffet in town.

While JW Marriot was close, it was The Mill, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur that impressed me the most. I won’t say it was 100% perfect (frankly, there are always hits and misses in buffets) but since almost all the sections managed to please my rather fussy palate; I rate this one higher than the rest.

Below: The rather juicy, tender lamb. The best I had so far.

Another reason why I would recommend The Mill at Grand Millennium is for the variety as well. From the lamb to the curries, Japanese and even the desserts, this spread wasn’t only covering the traditional delicacies but boasts of a rather extensive medley of western and Asian cuisine as well.
I trust this is ideal as diners would have more options; and not to mention loads more food to enjoy for the price paid!

Below: I’m loving the scallops!

The Japanese section is one of my favourites for sure. Who says no to fresh sashimi anyways?

I liked the Indian section too. The curries was flavourful and the spices has permeated into the seafood/meat of each pot, ensuring a tasty mouthful for every bite.

This was something unique and I couldn’t get enough of it that evening – but unfortunately couldn’t remember at all what is was! A safe bet is lamb balls.

These lentils curries are best paired with the crispy crackers or warm Indian flatbreads (naan).

Though I shy away from deep-fried food, these were addictive, thanks to the marinate.

The best were the bouncy, soft squids.

Perfect to pair with the aromatic rice.

Should you have a Chinese stomach (I do know many friends who does), dim sum, kam heong stir-frys, ubiquitous sweet sour dishes and your typical “chap choy” – mixed vegetables should satisfy.

Instead of big chafing dishes, everything here were prepared in small portions and refilled just before each plate is empty. This ensures freshly prepared hot dishes throughout the duration of the buffet.

A touch of Italian is available as well. Pizzas are freshly baked on the spot and there’s a live station for the pasta too.

Chocolate fountain are a common sight at buffet nowadays. I remember how back then it was a rarity and considered a premium for buffets.

Ramadhan Buffet Grand Millenium-060

Speaking of chocolate, here’s the chocolate souffle. It looked deceivingly like a chocolate molten/lava cake thus some of us were disappointed that there were no liquid chocolate oozing out. But hey, read the label, it’s a souffle!
