Italian gelato, cheesecake, apple and marshmellow from the choc fountain

My usual fare from buffets-the meats, and antipasti

I never skip the sashimi and fresh oysters,LOL.  First time I ever encountered shark’s fin(genuine) soup at any buffet. WOW!

Kids wanted to go for a buffet. They like having varieties of food to choose from.  If we eat at home, they have to eat what I cook.  I don’t give them options.  They love going around taking what they like from buffets.   My dh actually dislikes buffets, but we went to one anyway since the kids were requesting it.  I suggested the one at Sheraton Imperial.  I haven’t been there for ages.  Dh and I tried the Italian restaurant-Villa Danielli ages ago.  It was alright.  There are better Italian restaurants in town.  It’s one of the luxury hotels in town and they should have a very good buffet.  The price was not bad-above RM80++ for adults and kids are half priced.  We arrived earlier than our reservation(7:30pm), but there was hardly anyone inside.  There were maybe 3-4 tables.  The host was quite kind and said he would only charge us for one kid.  The restaurant has a  very bright(not gaudy) and eclectic ambience.  It has maybe 6 or 7 stations.  But I wasn’t disappointed, the food was very good.  For me, a good buffet depends on how well the meats are cooked and how fresh the seafood is.  The desserts have to stand out.  When I go to hotel buffets, I rarely eat the local food.  Best local food are eaten outside(hawker or street food).  The grilled beef was great, so was the roasted lamb, though I don’t like my lamb too rare.  The usual antipasto was excellent.  The cheese and bread were a little limited.  Dh and I had our fill of fresh oysters and sashimi(sliced upon request).  The desserts had the usual mousses and cakes.  I was disappointed with the chocolate fountain.  There were not many choices.  I only saw biscuits, marshmellows and pineapples-no strawberries.  The plain cheesecake was prob one of the best I’ve had in KL.  Dh and I loved the gelato flown in from Italy.  Dh wanted to buy some and bring it home to eat.  I choose the cheesy fig and mango w/passion fruit.  That was the highlight of the meal.  This buffet came with only house wines and coffee.
