Native Scottish oysters harvested in the four-century-old Loch Ryan beds; Australian lobsters caught from shallow ocean reefs and crayfish from river burrows; Malaysian and Indonesian crabs fished out of the seas of Borneo and Java - Seafood Sensation 2.0 brings the bounty of the world's waters to Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, served in a new buffet spread that's now available three evenings every week at the hotel's TEMPTationS restaurant.
Seafood Sensation 2.0 also comprises a slew of engaging seafood recipes - the Salad In The Jar, for example, is strikingly stacked, layered with a prawn cocktail that's buoyed with the sweetness of pineapple, plus grilled calamari with a chilli oil dressing that evokes Thai dynamics. We'd happily return to the buffet counter for a second helping of this.
We're impressed further by the buffet's main-course repertoire, which also includes various ingredients prepared a la minute, such as the Lobster a la Plancha Linguine, a persuasive coupling of seafood and pasta, showcasing Aussie lobster that's seared to a pleasurably light smokiness.
The Chilli Crab is a certain crowd-pleaser, with a punchy-spicy sweetness that complements fleshy Sabah crabs without overpowering them, ideal with fried mantou buns to soak up the sauce.
Slow-Baked Pacific Salmon is another highlight, smooth and flaky-moist with lovely crisp skin, rounded out with umami-rich roe and the cheery uplift of cherry tomatoes and a tomato-based Roma Relish sauce, much more satisfyingly ambitious than the average buffet concoction.
The Seafood Sensation 2.0 buffet is available at TEMPTationS, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for dinner, 630pm till 1030pm, at RM138 nett per person.
Many thanks to Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel for this preview.
