Ramadan Buffet 2012 @ The Mill Cafe, Grand Millennium KL

What is your favorite food/dish at a Ramadan buffet?

For me, it is definitely the roasted lamb! If the lamb is good, then you will see me eating plate after plate of lamb. Which was what I did at the Ramadan Buffet at The Mill in Grand Millennium hotel last week.



Themed "Gemersik Selera", The Mill Cafe ushers in Ramadan with a sumptuous spread of authentic Malay delicacies, barbecue and seafood delights, and their famous roast lamb. You can find regional specialties such as ayam panggang Seksyen 8, nasi ulam, nasi kerabu, kupang sambal Perlis, udang masak kerutup Linggi and many more.  There is also an International spread of Indian Tandoori, Japanese maki and sushi, pizza, pasta and desserts. The buffet is priced at RM98++ per person, available daily from 6pm-11pm.

My favorite section has to be the roasted lamb, one of their signature dishes. Since I was early, the chef kindly carved out a piece of lamb loin for me... it was so tender and delicious! I went back for more - I lost count how many times I loaded my plate full of lamb, accompanied by the mint sauce. And make sure you get some of the crispy skin too, it's oh-so-good.

I love the lemang here too, they were soft and went well with the serunding and Indian lamb kormas. Oh and the cheese naan is so good too!

Tandoori chicken and grilled crabs

Fresh seafood


The dishes are rotated daily, but if you see the glazed oxtail, do try it. Even Hubby who usually doesn't like oxtail loved this so much, he went back for seconds. It was gelatinous and flavourful, with tender meat.

Ahh, and desserts... I love the kuih seri muka, kuih talam, kuih lapis.. just to name a few. And there are also lots of Western desserts to choose from including panna cotta in shooters, profiteroles, cakes and chocolate fountain.

    1. Hehe Mich, wish I could say that I took the 2nd photo but it was actually a photo the hotel provided us with. The rest of the photos only taken by me :(

  3. That's a whole lamb! Not a leg, not a rack! Gosh!!! Huge!!! Kerabu looks good...but it isn't the traditional blue colour. Hmmm...I wouldn't pay RM98++ to eat that...and salted eggs...and the cheap ikan bakar, RM2 at the stalls. Ah!!! I see crabs, prawns, oysters...now that's more like it!

    1. Happily ate a large piece of lamb loin, but I have to say the other cuts were just as good.

    1. I have to agree with you on that... I find buffets incredibly hard to photograph. I really have to try hard to get some decent shots. Thx for yr kind words.

  10. good spread of food there. the lamb and oxtail look amazing. nasi kerabu is usually is blue in color, so that must be nasi ulam which looks yummy.

    1. I like eating oxtail soup but never the oxtail on its own, surprisingly very good since I love gelatinous meat.
