After a leading city hotel created an unexpected buzz with its crab buffet, more five-star hotels have sailed into similar waters, reeling in KL-lites with lavish buffet laden with seafood of all shapes and sizes. The all-day dining Serena Brasserie at InterContinental KL which has always flaunted a sumptuous seafood spread has upped the ante with an even more diverse selection.

Fresh baits to reel in avid seafood lovers include spanner crabs, spiny lobsters, yabbies, scallops, king crab legs, jumbo prawns and mussels on the half shell. These are poached and served on an elongated bed of carved ice with assorted condiments and dips so diners can help themselves to the oceanic treasures throughout the meal.


Casanova no doubt would have find it hard to resist those freshly shucked oysters but for the squeamish, baked versions of the succulent molluscs are also available. If you like sashimi and sushi, there’s an array of the popular Japanese delights too.
Executive chef Sam Kung also exhorts us to sample the plethora of sizzling seafood and grilled meat prepared à la minute on the open charcoal-fired grill, tempting us with endless dishes of Cajun BBQ jumbo prawns, grilled crayfish and kam heong yabbies.

Besides the seafood fest, keep your eyes peeled on the wide range of hot and cold dishes served in the buffet. Don’t be surprised to find Venezuelan specialities or occasional themed treats popping up – these add to the element of surprise so depending on when you visit. Rest assured there’s always something new and exciting to tickle your fancy.

Get hooked on Serena Brasseries’ sumptuous seafood promotion during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays at RM120++ per adult. For a spirited affair, plump for the W.O.W (Wine of the Week) package at RM180++ per adult inclusive of one bottle of red or white wine.
