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.
Sumptuous Roasted Whole Lamb. I did not manage to try this but it was one of their highlights in the Ramadan buffet.
Nasi Bukhari. Apart from this, there is also other flavoured rice like Nasi Minyak, Nasi Tomato offered to diners.
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.
And yes, Bubur Lambuk is available too if you want something lighter and soothing for the tummy instead.
Assorted keropok. (Traditionally made crisps). My son and husband loves these very much, and I can pretty much say the same for myself.
Fried stuff for those who love fried food.
Assorted Kerabu is available for you go pair with your rice too.
And where there is Kerabu, there is of course, the traditional Ulam-Ulaman.
If you are a fan of ‘Western’ version of ulams, no worries, you can assemble your own salads at the Salad Counter.
One thing that you should take note when you dine here in TEMPTationS is their action counter. They are offering fabulous food prepared ala minute.
The Action Counter
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.
I did not try this but my husband loves these to bits so I guess these are not too shabby either.
Moving on to dessert, there is assorted traditional Malay kuih to indulge in.
Both traditional and modern cakes is also available for those who have sweet tooth.
Last but not least, chocolate fountain for the chocolate lovers. 🙂
