The Best Buffet Ever

JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur, located adjacent to the Starhill Gallery has probably one of the best Ramadan buffet around with affordable price. Quite affordable, if you may.

With many other five-star hotels vying for buka puasa buffet but at insane prices (Hilton KL doing it at RM109++ per person, Le Meridien at RM89++, Hotel Istana at RM99++), JW Marriott took a wiser road by doing it at much lower price, which is RM54++. Not bad for an international five-star hotel with a long-standing good reputation over the years.

Aside from the numerous bombings in Jakarta though. Indonesians seemed to have a unquenchable thirst for actions, I assumed.

Anyway, here in JW Marriott Ramadan buffet, you won't find any Western or any other types of main dishes other than Malay's. For real kampung-style food lover like me, this is a buffet worth attending.

You have over 100 dishes to choose from - from chicken rice, mees, laksa, briyani, rojak, fruits, cakes, bubur, satay - you name it. No wonder this place garnered an overwhelming response this year that they added more seating on the fourth floor, in the Starhill conference room 1 to 9.

Ayi's platter: White rice, satay, perut masak lemak cili padi, ikan pari bakar and daging masak pedas

Kambing bakar and cut fruits

Nasi briyani, mutton and sting-ray fish curry and gulai nanas.

My platter: Rendang ayam, Singapore-style fried meehoon and sambal udang with petai

Curry puff, chocolate cake, banana pudding, steamed broccoli and pengat pisang (with orange juice - complete with orange sacs alright)

Banana jelly and bread & butter pudding

Pengat pisang

Rojak buah

With a reasonable price (I'm not saying it's cheap), friendly staff and convenient seating and food aisles, this has got to be the best buffet around. You just have got to try it, at least once.
