Jampagne Brunch @ Iketeru, KL Hilton

Buffet to me is synonymous with bad to mediocre food and hoards of people piling up their plates from the buffet table as though food is going out of style. It could not be more different at Iketeru. Instead of self service from a buffet spread, diners are given a menu with a wide array of choices. Place your orders with the waiter and the food will be cooked to order. You can have whatever is on the menu, as many dishes as you want. The only restriction is that maximum of 5 dishes at a time. Almost everything was yummy but the portions were tiny! The waiters were kept busy taking and serving our orders. We were tempted, but politeness stopped us from placing a standing order of 4 portions of everything on the menu.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. And yeah, it tastes even better than it looks. My photo taking skills just does not do it justice.

Choice of sashimi on the menu is fairly extensive. We could not decide what to have, so we tried everything on the menu :P
Prawn, Octopus, Butter Fish Sashimi
Salmon and Tuna Sashimi
Ooh.. lala... Baked Cheese Scallops served on its shell, scrumpmilicious!

Buffet is available only during weekends, from 12pm to 3pm. We arrived promptly and stayed until the very delicious end! The buffet is priced at RM168++ with free flowing champagne or you can eschew the booz and stick to just food for RM98++. Be warned, drinks are not included in the buffet price. Ocha is RM8++ per person. Although the price isn’t exactly wallet friendly, I can say its well worth the quality of food and service.
