Went for lunch buffet today. I was so thrilled to see the spread at Essence. There were lamb, lamb, chicken, chicken and more chicken dishes. If you are into curries this would be just the place to come to. Practically every dish is spicy. Oh, and one overdone roast lamb. There was chicken satay - the best tasting meat item today. The ketupat was hard though. Same for the meat dishes.
Over at the Japanese section, the rice for the sushi was dry and hard. That's alright - one must adapt to different styles of preparation of food.
The salad bar was passable.
Was wondering how come during this one month where no Malays are having lunch, there wasn't any Chinese fried rice or fried noodles, or chinese style fried veggies, steamed fish? Oh ya, there was no fish today. The steamed green beans were not green - they had morphed into some yellowish stringy looking things....so sad looking. I particularly didn't want to disturb that dish.
There were NOT many lunch guests today but the used plates were not cleared promptly. We just placed them on the empty tables next to our table.
Was I at Sheraton Imperial Hotel? THE Sheraton chain hotel??? Really???
Because this is a Sheraton hotel, I would have to rate our lunch experience as poor.
