I grew up by the beachside in Penang and as a child, I was quite tomboy-ish. I can still remember those times I got into trouble with my parents for skipping school and whatnot, but I wouldn’t trade these memories for anything. One of my fondest memories is going fishing and digging for little clams after school with some friends and cooking them to enjoy by the beachside as snacks before I go home for dinner. They were the freshest seafood I have ever eaten and when I grew up, I got really fussy when it comes to seafood, as not all seafood that I could find in restaurant tasted as if they were freshly caught from the sea, especially in Kuala Lumpur. And it is even harder to find cooks who could handle cooking seafood in a way that does not ruin the original taste of the seafood.
But lucky me, the team of chefs in TEMPTationS, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur has never disappoint when it comes to creating delicious delicacies, and preparing delicious seafood is part of their expertise.
It so happens that TEMPTationS, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur is currently having a celebration of crustacean and seafood and I decided to pay them a visit and indulge a little bit on all things seafood.
Here’s sharing with you some of the highlights of their Sensational Seafood promo;
Diners can revel in the cold selection of seafood on ice such as green and Chilean black mussels, fresh tiger prawn, slipper lobster, clams, half-shelled scallop, bamboo clams and freshly shucked oysters accompanied with a choice of shallot vinegar, cocktail sauce, lemon wedge, tabasco, horseradish and sriracha sauce.

Another thing that you need to check out is the Live Action Station, where you can select the raw seafood that’s being offered and get the chef on duty to cook them up for you as you like. You may have it BBQ-ed, grilled or even cooked in the sauce of your choice.
This is what I had during my visit, the Slipper Lobster cooked in a special sweet, sour and spicy sauce. Simply put, this is sensational.
Grilled Tiger Prawns are a must have. They’re simply fresh, juicy and flavourful.
Also from the live action counter; the Squid Ink pasta. I was feeling a tad adventurous that day and I wanted to try something exotic. And I had the chef made this for me. Being a pasta lover, I must say that this Squid Ink Pasta in Marinara Sauce surpassed all my expectations.
Some of the piping hot dishes with seafood element in it.
A variety of seafood based rice; Seafood Paella, Chinese Fried Rice and Nasi Goreng Kampung. These are a must try if you are the sort of person who can’t do without rice in your daily meals. They are simply delicious and are worth every single calories, I assure you.
Also spotted at the buffet, fresh Salmon Sashimi.
If you are a fan of sashimis, you definitely would want to get the chef to slice a plateful of this for you.
If you are a fan of Japanese food but raw sashimi is not your cuppa tea, no worries, there’s a selection of sushis for you to pick from as well. These should satiate your cravings for the food that comes from the land of raising sun.
Noodle station features plenty of Laksa and Noodles.
But if you ask me what’s worth your calories, it would be this bowlful of steaming hot Prawn Noodles.
Do remember to make room for desserts as the pastry chef has lined-up an array of colourful and delicious desserts.
A must have from the dessert counter is these freshly made all time Malaysian’s favourite pancakes; Apom Balik. They’re filled with sweetcorns and crushed peanuts and are sweetly addictive on the palate.
And if you have sweet tooth, these wide array cakes and puddings will definitely not disappoint you.
