Kitchen Art Brasserie @ Empire Hotel Subang (Subang Jaya, Selangor)

I can count the number of amazing bosses I have worked with. Not many I would say but this current "Mat Salleh" boss, he is such a gem. Humble and simple, he is always smiling yet work is still work. Thus, when he had to return to his origin country once his term expired, instead of extending for another term, he decided to let go and pass the bacon to someone else. So, all of us agreed that he should be honoured with a farewell dinner, including a gift as well. I was not the person who organised the dinner but sure, I didn't mind paying my share and be there at Kitchen Art Brasseries.

While most colleagues decided to go from work, I came back and left during the later part of the evening. Upon walking in, almost everyone had arrived. Then later, arrived the guest of honour and dinner opened up - basically a buffet, pretty much as at other hotels. This one, I thought the selections were sort of limited and the usual - starters, appetizers, soups, salads, cold cuts, bread and cheese, local main dishes like noodles, rice, curries, veggies, fruits, ice cream and soft drinks (see the pictures)


Being a small eater even at buffets and here, I had sop kambing/mutton soup and curry mee to start off. Mutton soup, thick, flavourful and aromatic whereas the curry mee, well, plenty of different types of condiments/toppings, I opted for yellow noodles and some of the veggies. A delicious treat yet I would have preferred the broth to be piping hot and to compare with curry noodles from hawker stalls, not any close.

Colleagues who could eat non-stop, they didn't miss out on the nasi ayam/chicken rice and as said, the mains for plain rice and fried rice. Outside the dining area at the grilling station and pasta/spaghetti station, I picked the grilled fish and the dips. Being a true lover of authentic Malaysian sambal/dips, I enjoyed this dish. 

Then, it was walking to the other section for the desserts - between the local kuih-muih, Western cakes, sweet porridge, ice kacang/ABC and cendol.

Opting for the corn sweet porridge for the sweet coconut milk flavours and little portion of cakes and local kuih for my sugar rush, these fared quite right.

So we ate, we chatted and as dinner came to an end, we realised that coffee and tea are not included and the other disappointment, only two types of soft drinks. For the price we paid, we felt that more choices are offered at other hotels.
