Essence

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

Alarge atrium closes down into the warm and cosy, al­beit vast set­ting of Essence, where ta­bles and booths lit­ter the two seat­ing lev­els, pro­vid­ing plenty of space for the crowds that throng its af­ter­noon lunch buf­fet.

While the à la carte menu of­fers ev­ery­thing from an in­ter­na­tional break­fast to Euro­pean and Asian mains, Essence finds its essence dur­ing the lunch buf­fet where the spread is a culi­nary trip around the world.

The salad, Asian, West­ern, seafood, noo­dles and dessert sta­tions are clev­erly spread out and pro­vide plenty to try. At the cold sta­tion, salad lovers will de­light in the as­sort­ment of fresh greens, dress­ings and cheese, but the seafood sta­tion is where the crowds swarm for fresh seafood, and de­li­cious sushi and sashimi.

For a more Malaysian fare, the Asian sta­tion serves up ev­ery­thing from cur­ries to sa­tay with a serv­ing of vegetable biryani or naan.

The West­ern sta­tion will sat­isfy your crav­ings for all man­ner of roasted and grilled meat with grilled skirt steak, roasted chicken, pan- grilled fish and a whole rack of lamb on of­fer. The Euro­pean leg is com­pleted with a serv­ing of pasta.

The noo­dle and dim sum sta­tion recre­ates the feel of an old mar­ket in a mod­ern and sleek set­ting. Din­ers as­sem­ble their own bowls from a va­ri­ety of soups, noo­dles, veg­eta­bles, seafood and meat, while pick­ing up a few dim sums along the way. The par­tic­i­pa­tion cer­tainly makes for a fun ex­pe­ri­ence.
