In Season Musang King Durian Buffet – RM49.90 @ Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Dear readers and friends, some of you might already know that I am venturing into the F&B business specializing in fruit related products. In fact, some of you had already ordered durians via In Season’s Facebook page and I even delivered them to you personally.
I am happy to have your support and based on the positive feedbacks so far, I think we are headed the right direction and we will strive to maintain our service and quality. This is a very hands-on project for me and I have been cutting up a lot of fruits recently.
Currently, we are heavily focused on durian because it is a seasonal fruit. But when this season is over, we will come up with many other products such as 100% fruit juices, homemade ice cream, yoghurt and other handmade snacks.

Today, we will be launching our largest promotion to date, which is the Musang King durian buffet @ RM49.90/pax. If you had followed my postings on this blog, you will notice that durian is featured quite frequently – especially those related to buffet. As a consumer myself, I fully understand that honesty and business conduct of the seller whether it’s a huge corporation or a road side hawker stall, both are are equally important.
That’s why we hand-pick only the good quality Musang King durians from our own orchard at Raub to be served in the buffet. Also, we won’t serve a large yet low-quality fruit solely for the purpose of filling you up. If the durian served is not suitable to be consumed, we will dispose of it and replace accordingly – these are our promises.
However, if you find that durian buffet is not your cup of tea, you could still place an order via online or my personal mobile (provided in the In Season Facebook page). Thanks!

RM9 Eat All You Can Durian Buffet @ 6363 Durian Stall, Kepong Baru

6363-Durian-Stall

This is the first time I see an eat-all-you-can durian buffet being promoted in Kepong. So I figured why not give it a try since it is only RM9 per person, which is the same as those in SS2. The stall is called 6363 and it is located at the famous durian street in Kepong Baru.

Durian-Kampung

Durian

Kepong-Durian

For RM9 and eat-all-you-can, you can only expect sweet durian kampung to be served. But the good thing is that water and tissue are provided free of charge and the durians we got were mostly decent.
Nothing was too bad and even if there was one that did not taste good, you could reject it and they will replace it with another fruit. And unlike the PJ stalls where the workers always open one big durian and shove it on your table, 6363′s workers have the courtesy to at least ask first.

RM118 A La Carte Japanese Buffet @ Tatsu, Intercontinental Hotel Kuala Lumpur

This is my first buffet post in almost 2 years and I am going to make it a quick one. Tatsu at Intercontinental Hotel is the place and the Japanese a la carte buffet costs RM118 for an adult. Crazy eh? I think this is the most expensive buffet I have ever had. Price is the only downside here as most of the food that really mattered such as sashimi, cod, unagi and tempura are good while the rest meet expectations.

Salmon-Sashimi

5 types of sashimi (counts as 5 of the 88 dishes) here: butterfish, octopus, salmon, taro and yellowtail.

Salmon-Sushi

7 types of sushi (2pcs for each portion): butterfish, eel, salmon, ika, octopus, tuna and yellowtail.

Teriyaki-Cod

Teriyaki Cod, delicious and a must order here. Best value too if you intend to eat for your money’s worth.

This is my first buffet post in almost 2 years and I am going to make it a quick one. Tatsu at Intercontinental Hotel is...

Munakata Buy Two Free One Ala-Carte Japanese Buffet Dinner is back

Munakata is one of the very few Japanese restaurants in town that serve Cod Fish as part of their ala-carte buffet menu. That alone is a major reason why I would still go back to them. While it is true that their ala-carte buffet menu is not as extensive as the rest, I have been to Japanese buffets many times enough to know that quality matters more than quantity.
After my last visit, Life Centre went under a much-desired renovation and many questions were posed asking if Munakata was still open, as the scaffolding pretty much hid the restaurant from sight hence creating an impression that they were closed during that period. Well, the answer should be pretty obvious now that you are reading this. Truth is, they were never gone and to sweeten that fact, Munakata’s “buy three, pay for two” ala-carte buffet dinner promotion is back again. If you are wondering, this is the same promotion I had when I first went to Munakata a few years back.
But firstly, let me address some of the common complaints I have received about Munakata. Variety wise, I have said this again and again – if you are looking for hundreds of things to order in your buffet, then please head elsewhere like Tenji or Jogoya. Food portion wise, I really can’t comprehend why would anyone even complain about it.
Take the sashimi for example. If you already know that per person’s portion is 3 slices and you were expecting maybe like 30 slices, you can always place another 10 orders. This is just simple maths, no? I really can’t see how this is a valid complaint. It is not like they are placing a restriction on how many orders you can place on each food. And just to be clear, I am not deliberately trying to defend Munakata. But the way I see it, some (read: *SOME*) of you just like to place the blame on others if anything goes wrong, either the restaurant or the blogger.

salmon-sashimi

OK, enough of my long winded rant and let’s get back to business. Since this is my third post about Munakata and the buffet menu remains very much the same, I am just going to highlight on the items that are worthy of ordering. Don’t get me wrong though, I am not saying the rest are bad. But in a buffet I think you gotta be smart and get the good and higher valued stuff, right? Please be a smart consumer.
Salmon is the only choice of sashimi being served here, which is bad news for those who are expecting more like tuna or squid. Well the good thing is they still taste great and personally, that is all that matters to me since salmon is the only sashimi I truly enjoy anyway.
