Crustacean corner

Bubbly and oysters make one of my favourite indulgences and Sunday brunches are when I look forward to a crack at oysters on the half shell and several glasses of sparkling. The Pacific oysters (also known as Coffin Bay oysters) I tucked into at the Sparkalite Sunday Brunch left me wanting more – they were plump, tasty and succulent.


Bubbly and wines are always good…

InterContinental Kuala Lumpur’s Sparkalite Brunch boasts their own ‘4Cs’, where guests get to tuck into a core spread of crustaceans, carvery, chocolate and candy. Brunch comes with an option of sparkling, on top of Australian whites and reds, beer and DIY cocktails like Mimosa, Kir Royale and Bellini.

Prawns, tuna, slipper lobster and white fish for grilling

Crustaceans feature a selection of prawns, tuna, white fish, slipper lobster and oysters, and a live action station to grill your pick. I enjoyed them both – fresh and grilled. The tuna and white fish were thickly cut so they were medium rare at the centre after grilling.


Meats and sausages




Grilled sirloin and lamb chop


Grilled seafood. The white fish and tuna were delicious!

The meats from Carvery range from tandoori, roast lamb, roast beef and roast chicken. During my visit, lamb leg was on the menu with a side of roast vegetables. There is also a live action station where guests can select their choice of meats to be grilled. I found the sirloin and lamb chop slightly tough, and stuck to the grilled fishes and prawns instead.

Another thing to look out for at brunch is the pasta station – select the pasta of your choice, condiments to include and preferred sauce, and the chef will prepare it on the spot.

I made just enough space for dessert – chocolate fudge brownies, tarts and some ice cream. Chocoholics would like the chocolate fountain with a selection of cookies, cakes and fruits to dip in. Candy was stationed at the Kids’ Corner to keep the little ones entertained while you unwind and enjoy brunch.

Hi Bangsar Babe,

Thanks for all your thorough feedback on these buffets. I am trying to decide which is the BEST buffet for Xmas day brunch/lunch this year with my family. Have been to Ritz Carlton twice and enjoyed but wondering if any others better? Others suggest Inter-Continental and Shangri la. We love seafood, good carvery, desserts and if entertainment for adults/kids even better?!

Can I ask what would be your top 3 recommendations? Regardless of price.

Tks a lot,

Hi Alison,

Shangri-la used to be good but these days, not quite so. I like Ritz-Carlton but it’s rather expensive. Intercontinental has a decent range, but not all items were exemplary.

Mosaic at Mandarin Oriental is pretty good, from what I can remember. The oysters are fresh and they have a grill station and roast of the day too.

1) Ritz-Carlton
2) Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental
3) Contango, Majestic KL

Good Evening maam,

I have heard bad stories about China crayfish. This buffet looks extremely delicious but my inner health freak makes me fearful of the crayfish. Do you know whether they serve China crayfish?
