I love it when friends of all colors and creed gather around the dinner table for this buka puasa. And Andre Shum of Rama V provided us with such an opportunity recently, when he invited a group of bloggers to try out their ramadan buka puasa buffet. And WHAT a spread there is in RAMA V. Quality over quantity, for starters. There's something to be said for variety, but give me less of it, if it is at the expense of quality. I love the spread at RAMA V, and not just because we were invited to dine, but because, its different from the usual hotel spreads, for starters, and the food is genuinely tasty.
Lovely refreshing salads adorn the starter table.
A wide array of hot foods, such as deep fried calamari, stir fried vegetables, otak otak.
The highlight has to be these plump juicy fresh oysters....
which are accompanied by a special Thai sauce. If you are an oyster lover, this buffet is value for money to the max.
Look at my plate, and I wasn't even fasting.
I liked this version of pad thai. The noodle was a bit al dente which gave it a lovely crunch.
There is an AWESOME sambal belachan to go with the ulams.
Check out the spread of these lovely barnacles.
Their signature blue lotus dumplings, which are still good.
Spring Rolls, which are crisp, and not overly oily, despite their deep fried status.
A lovely night by all...and we were treated to the MESMERIZING voice of Joel Wong, one of the singers in KL YOUNG SINGERS, who sang a solo for THAMBY, ...since August is her birthday month, and like typical royalty, the celebrations seem to drag on forever.
I got this tip from the queen of the dslr herself. If lazy to edit the pictures, just make them black and white. It covers a multitude of sins.
Thanks again to Andre for his usual generosity.
The buffet is priced at RM75++....there is a comprehensive dessert selection too, which I forgot to take pictures off, but do head over to Ciki's post here for stunning pics of the place and food, and also a complete menu.
