A few Sundays back, the entire lobby of Hilton Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding areas looked like we were still the jewel in Crown of the British Empire. Oh, hangon, wait, we were NEVER the "Jewel" per se, ...I guess. But the Union Jack adorned the area, with the quintessential red phone booth, and the mini cooper.. All for one day of SUPERBRUNCH, featuring arguably the best of British fare.
Whilst actually, real traditional British fare, like Sunday roasts and yorkshire pudding, toad in hole, etc aren't particularly stellar in the culinary spectrum, there's always a homey feel about it, more so than ladida French food, which one is less inclined to try to replicate in one's own kitchen, as opposed to say, a roast.
The wail of bagpipes resounded cacophonously through the hallowed halls of Hilton, (would have been better if it was Hallowed Halls of Hogwarts), played by kids, which begs the question, WHO sends their kids for bagpipe lessons? Is it even on the ABRSM music repertoire? I can imagine some chinky mother proudly declaring, "ooh, my daughter just passed her Grade 8 in bagpipes".
The main area in Vascos had the usual buffet spread in addition to some specifically British items, like a gianormous Wagyu leg roast, accompanied with Yorkshire puddings on steroids. Huge mothers with an assorted accompaniment of roasted vegetables like potatoes, carrots, etc.
To break the monotony of meat, (land based meat), the usual Asian section with sashimi was a welcome break after my meatings.
Unfortunately the Superbrunch isn't a regular feature, although the usual buffet fare at Vasco's is not very different anyway, and is bound to be just as satisfying. Oh, a highly recommended item from the buffet is the Peking Duck, very yummy, crispy skin melt in the mouth ...
