Be Tempted With Malaysian Flavours For Buka Puasa at Temptations Restaurant, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

If there is any buffet spread that would tempt me to eat a lot after a whole day of fasting, it would definitely be TEMPTationS Restaurant, Renaissance KL. The spread is inspired to please every palate and I can shamelessly tell you that among all Ramadan Buffet that I’ve went, this is one of the restaurant that I actually stayed til their closing time so that I could sample more food. Like most buffets, they have plenty to offer but here’s highlighting what’s worth trying.

Wide array of curries to go with your plain or flavoured rice. There is a few must try here, and that includes Daging Tulang Rawan Rendang Pedas, Daging Palembang, Udang Harimau Masak Lemak Cili Padi and also the sensational Gulai Ketam. I gave these a try and I must say that I’m delightfully impressed. They are bursting with flavours and pretty much authentic.

Here’s assorted sea produce you can pick for grilling.

Assorted grilled seafood. These are grilled on top of banana leaves and is minimally flavoured to bring out the natural sweetness. I tried a few and found the stingray chunks is the most addictive ones in comparison to other type of fishes.

Beef and chicken satay is also available at the grill section.

The noodle station offers assorted noodles for you to try, but being a Penangite, one that won my heart is the Laksa.

Laksa Utara. Excuse the mess, I can’t help but slurped it all up before taking photo. Not the Assam Laksa variety of Laksa but the good old Kuala Kedah style of Laksa. Topped with chunks of pineapple, shredded cucumber and prawn paste, this plate of Laksa is just divine. The soup was rich, thick, creamy and flavourful and there is no fishy smell whatsoever. I took two plates of the Laksa. And that alone says a lot considering that I’m absolutely picky when it comes to Laksa.

Another action counter spotted is the Apom Balik Stall, where you can request for your own customized Apom Balik.
