Thailand - Foodie Post 2

On arriving to Kuala Lumpur I checked in to the Madarin Oriental Hotel, this hotel is located in the very centre of KL next door to the Petronas Towers.  Unfortunately, perfect as the hotel was, my room did not overlook the towers.  After two very busy days sight seeing in Singapore it was great to finally relax in this luxary hotel and spend some time by the rooftop pool.  Dinner that even was at one of the Madarin's resturants.  Mosac is a buffet style resturant like no other I have been too.  The choice was amazing and nothing like the buffet style resturnants I have been to in England. 

The resturnant had 8 main areas consisting of Meats, Chinese, Indian, Cheese/Breads, Seafood, Japanese, Italian and Desserts (my fav).  

In the meat area you could help yourself to precook BBQ meats such as chicken and satay style kebabs.  The main section though was the raw meat that they cooked to request.  Fillet steaks, chicken and lamb chops where my favourite here and they cooked it perfectly.  You could also have duck, some seafood and also varous sasusages.  As Mayalsia is mostly muslim in religion they do not serve pork.  This counter also served various accomlements to the meat, corn on the cob, carrots and sauces.  I must have consumed 6 lamb chops, 2 steaks and about 5 satay chickens from the counter alone.

Seafood is not my sort of thing at all.  I think this counter was truly wasted on me as you had your choice of sushi, smoked salmon, fresh oysters and pawns.  I don't think I ate anything from this section. 
The chinese and indian counters where not filled with huge choice but instead a few select dishes that where cooked perfectly.  The thai green curry was just spicy enough and the korma was flaoured perfectly.  

Dessert is my thing and this resturant did not dissapoint at all.  The choice was HUGE!  Two chocolate fountins (milk or white), ice creams, fruits, cakes and chocolates.  All perfect and I found it very difficult not to go back at least 4 times for different things.  The two images below are only some of the things I tired.  I was very impressed with the quality of each item.  I would go back just for the dessert!

Breakfast was also served in Mosacs and equalied the quality I had the night before.  This resturant is amazing, the hotel was amazing.  I am a 'fan' of the Oritental and will be staying at the more often in the future.
