Sometime late last year, Mandarin Oriental Hotel KL organised a photography contest for their revamped, all-day dining restaurant called Mosaic. I submitted four photos and were delighted to find out that three had won me some dining vouchers.
We used the vouchers on two separate occassions - the first one we brought my parents and the second occassion a dating dinner for hubs and myself.
The following photos were taken on both occassions.
The new Mosaic was refurbished in a beautiful, dramatic style - lots of bold colours, plush seating, rows and rows of brilliantly lit pendant lighting, and elaborate panelling. It was pretty impressive.
One can choose to seat near the windows, overlooking the lawns...
Or in a cozy, private plush corner...
Or just be practical and sit right next to the food.
The spread was pretty extensive. The good thing is, small portions are presented, so it gets replenished fast with a freshly cooked batch.
There's the cold starter section and the cheese station.
A limited Japanese section and raw selection
|Plenty of the usual suspects - sushi, oysters, sashimi salmon, tuna, butter fish,|
a variety of smoked cuts, marinaded clams etc
|A huge mound of smoke salmon|
The Indian section
The Western hot section, which also includes the grill station
|We enjoyed the food here - hubby had a nice, medium done steak; |
king prawns on skewers, gourmet sausages, lamb racks etc
|and some pretty good satays|
The Italian pasta section
|A gigantic barrel carved out of 100% aged|
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. The staff told me it weighs about
50kg, and is fully shipped in from Italy
|It's not just for decoration. The cheese is actually used in cooking |
the sauces for the pasta.
The Chinese section
And finally the dessert section
|Nice presentation - dainty portions of desserts displayed in glass cabinets|
|From top left : Sugar dusted jellies, baklavas, fresh fruits on skewers for chocolate fondue, fantastic mango sorbet with fresh berry compote, variety of cut fruits|
I also like the fact that they have a list of complimentary hot drinks beyond just normal coffee and tea. You can choose from mocha, hot chocolate, latte, cappucino, teh tarik and a few other varieties of teas.
|I was very happy with a glass of freshly brewed latte|
Weekend dinner buffet prices are RM128++ for adults.
They can get pretty busy at times, so best to call ahead for reservations.
