Seafood Buffet Dinner at Chatz Brasserie, Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur

A fan of seafood? I am. Growing up by the sea makes me a huge fan of seafood, but as I grew older, I discovered that fresh seafood is a rare commodity, especially when you are living in a concrete jungle. But lucky me, there is a few places in KL that is offering seafood buffet with a reasonable price. Chatz Brasserie, Parkroyal KL is one of the leading restaurants in KL that is offering such a sinful seafood indulgence.

Here’s sharing with you the seafood feast galore that’s offered by Chatz Brasserie, Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur.

I made it a habit to check out the salad counter whenever I go for a buffet lunch or dinner, and I’m pleased to say that the usual suspect is there. Fresh, crisps green for you to assemble the salad bowl.

Assorted cheese. The good ones, mind you. I noticed they have Gouda, Edam, aged cheddar, chevre etc.

Freshly baked bread, right from the given for you to go with your cheese or soup of the day.

Fresh seafood for grilling at the grilling stall.

Grilled seafood items are prepared for you upon request. 😉 so don’t be shy, the chef doesn’t bite. Just walk over to the counter, take your pick and have them grill whatever suits your fancy.

While you are at the buffet, be sure to keep a lookout for the large Garoupa with Asam. The fish was naturally sweet and perfectly done that I wish I could have the entire fish to myself. But of course…my tummy is small and having the whole garoupa to myself is not exactly possible. 🙂

Prawn sambal tumis is a must try item in the buffet too. I swear it taste almost like the sambal that my late grandmother used to cook for us.

Irresistibly fresh sashimi is available too, so if you are a huge fan of raw seafood items, do give it a try.

Japanese noodle fans wouldn’t be disappointed either. I spotted the Udon and Soba noodle counter where you can customise your own cold Soba or Udon noodles. I’m a fan, but I gave this a miss in favour of other things, though.

Assorted smoke salmon slices for salmon lovers.

Squid in spicy dried chilli sauce and ginger

Curry fish head. Lovely but rather spicy to me, so I’d recommend you to pair this dish with piping hot steamed white rice or a thickly cut bread slice.

Buttered mantis prawns.

Baked oysters is lovely. I had three of these before I pry myself away from it in favour of other offerings at the buffet.

 photo IMG_20141108_183359_zpsfytjekag.jpg

There was Crab pudding too. Savoury and creamy, this dish is substance over style. It may look ordinary on the outside, but packed quite a satisfaction inside with generous chunks of crabs in cream.

Spotted a Beggar’s Chicken lying around in the midsts of seafood galore too, so if you want a lil break from your seafood marathon, you might want to have a go at this.

Sang Ha Noodles is one of the suspect that warrants a second helping in the buffet.

 photo IMG_20141108_192622_zpsje3iuxce.jpg

I managed to slurp a bowl of this and I must say that it is divine. Sang Ha Noodles is basically wok-fried egg noodles and fresh water prawn done “Cantonese” style. It was a dish that’s executed rather well with fresh water prawn that’s packed with the roe, and accompanied by blanched spinach providing it with that extra jolt of savory taste. A decent version of Sang Har Noodles, I must say.

Fish head soup noodles is available for those who prefers something milkier and creamier.

Two items caught my attention at the action counter; Oyster Omelet and Lobster Porridge.

 photo IMG_20141108_200653_zpslojr2wzj.jpg

The Oyster Omelet was a wonderful rendition of an otherwise ordinary street food. It was generously served with fresh, succulent oysters and a side of tangy and sweetly spicy sauce.

 photo IMG_20141108_200636_zpshez1eym3.jpg

Lobster Porridge on the other hand, brought the humble porridge up a notch with it’s expensive ingredients. Another one of the item that I think worth trying at the seafood buffet, in my opinion.

There is also a small dimsum corner over here at the buffet.

Fried Sui Kow for those who love some crunch while having dimsums.

And of course, steamed dimsum varieties like siew mai and mini pau is also available.

Apart from the things that I mentioned above, you might want to take a note on this too;

Apart from being entitled to ordering the Seafood Plates of Pleasure, buffet diners are also entitled to a glass of Beauty Booster, a drink concocted from beetroot, dragon fruit and red sourplum.
The drink costs RM18, but Seafood Dinner Buffet diners are entitled to a complimentary glass of the Beauty Booster Drink.

This drink is rich with vitamin C and antioxidants. It is said that the concoction could help lower blood pressure, calms the nerves, helps the body to detox, improves blood circulation and appetite and also helps to improve your eyesight and memory.

I have initially mistook this drink as pomegranate juice so I had a bit of a shocker when I had a sip, but I think the drink is not too shabby. It has a good combination of sweet and sour, and quite a pleasure to drink. Go for this if you are feeling guilty for over-indulging with all the fabulous seafood at the buffet. 😉

However, if you are not the adventurous kind, just head over to the juice bar and customise your own fruit juice with the fresh fruits settled nicely at the juice bar. These are freeflow. 😉

A food marathon is never complete without desserts, so go ahead. They have local Nyonya kuih.

Crepe Suzette, a French dessert consisting of a crêpe with beurre Suzette, a sauce of caramelized sugar and butter, tangerine or orange juice and zests at the ala minute counter.
