Sunday Roast at The Ritz-Carlton

“Malaysians love to eat.”

Okay, that’s an understatement. “Malaysians live to eat” sounds more like it. Which explains why many hotels have buffet to cater to the high demand. That said, not all buffets are worth trying as most go for quantity rather than quality.

The Sunday Roast at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur is one of the best buffets I’ve tried recently, quality-wise. Available every Sunday, the spread is a sight to behold and the jazzy tunes from the band fills the ear as you fill your stomach.

The spread is indulgent and comprises aged Black Angus prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, roast leg of lamb, Fine de Claire oyster, lobster, foie gras terrine and assorted cheeses among others. Also available is a sashimi and sushi section, and an antipasti counter with marinated olives, sundried tomatoes, artichoke and feta cheese.

Fine de Claire oysters

I couldn’t get enough of the oysters – they had a sweet-salty flavour and the flesh was firm, yet delicate. The lobster was lovely. Simply boiled, it was sweet and tender, best eaten with a squeeze of lime. Casual, yet elegant. I helped myself to two whole lobsters. 😀

Foie Gras Terrine

The foie gras terrine was divine. I had plenty of these, smeared on crusty sliced bread. Delicious, I tell you! I also liked the seared scallop and smoked salmon gravlax. These warranted a second and third helping.

We tucked into the lovely spread and sipped on champagne – such lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. By the way, champagne is free flow should you opt for the alcoholic brunch. So alcoholics rejoice!

French Onion Soup

Between the two soups that afternoon, I preferred the lobster bisque. The French Onion Soup was a tad sweet for my liking. rif however, liked it. Do try the Black Angus prime rib. It was tender and falling off the bone. I especially liked the fat, which was richly satisfying. Very bad for the waistline though. 😛

Roast leg of lamb

Also good was the roast leg of lamb, with a selection of sauces for extra flavour. The meat was well-seasoned and roasted till juicy perfection. I don’t know about you, but I usually ask for a cut with some fat as it gives more flavour to the meat.

Desserts are also worth keeping stomach space for. From pretty profiteroles to French pastries, fine cakes and chocolate pralines, all were exciting on the eye and even more on the tongue. I was spoilt for choice.

Like the people from The Ritz-Carlton say, “It’s not just a Sunday Roast. This is an experience that will leave you amazed from start to finish.” I can’t help but agree.

The Sunday Roast is served between 12pm and 3pm every Sunday at The Lobby Lounge. It is priced at RM140++ per person and RM350++ per person inclusive of free flow champagne. The champagne package is a bit steep for me, as I can’t drink that much champagne when I’m enjoying such a decadent spread. But if you’re a drinker, go for it!
