Compared to my early arrival for the "Warna-Warni Buffet", I was a little off track with punctuality for this seafood promotion. What else can be a valid reason except to blame it on the rain and the traffic jam that came with it.
I walked into Terraza Brasserie and after being warmly greeted by the staff, I sat at the table with the rest of the invited guest - to sample the buffet worth of fresh seafood, available every Thursday at RM98.00++ from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. This promotion is certainly a seafood lover's paradise with various speciality offers, from the seafood pillah with herbs butter to baked oyster rockefeler, other best catch from the sea and local dishes as well.
For the main course, I couldn't resist the laksa Johor which is and will always remain as my top 10 favourites. The noodles didn't captivate my attention but I still packed my bowl with a tiny bit of it and with the condiments - boiled egg, red chillies, bean sprouts, red onions, long beans and basil leaves, after which the spicy fish flavoured thick broth was poured over.
If you are another typical Malaysian like me, the laksa is a must try for its authentic, creamy and utmost delicious flavours. Again, I couldn't shut my big mouth. I continuously convinced everyone to "Please Try" because I know for a fact that they will regret going back home without tasting it. I was also happy that I sat with a small group of nice people and we were recommending this dish and that dish to each other. When one of them told me to go over to the grilling station outside the dining area, there I was with a plate of cockles,mussels and shrimps.
The cockles were juicy and tender but eating them was a little messy especially in front of people you just met, all the more its important to uphold your table mannerism. However it was smooth sailing with the clams and shrimps because the meat felt apart easily from the shells.
I was definitely in the mood of eating because there were ample desserts available, from the stylish and attractive cakes, tradition Malay favourites, ice cream and a variety of condiments, Western desserts.chocolate fountain and fruits.
I never waste my time with fruits at buffets because I can buy them anywhere and eat any time. But the heavenly desserts like the crepes,chocolate dipped marshmallows, apple crumble, custard in a slim glass, sugar free jelly and floating island - prepared by professional chefs are those I never miss out on.
If I am to rank the desserts I tasted, it will be high distinction for the crepe, crumble and custard. The rest also fared well and so, please do not miss them too when you are at this seafood buffet in Dorsett Grand Subang.
Thanks very much Dorsett for the invitation.
