Review: In Colonial Restaurant, Intermark Kuala Lumpur

>> Saturday, June 21, 2014

Overall comment: Top-grade quality food at reasonable prices. It's a great bargain that you shouldn't miss during the month of Ramadan!
Halal: Pork-free; uses halal ingredients (alcohol is served at their bar area)

Just imagine having a 'fine-dining style' Ramadan buffet for the price of your usual Ramadan buffet during the month of Ramadan. How does that sound to you? Your eyes just started to sparkle? :D

Here at In Colonial, you can expect quality dishes at a reasonable price. Located at the strategic & somewhat "luxurious-feeling" Intermark in Kuala Lumpur, this lovely restaurant is tucked at a corner on the ground floor of the building. The restaurant serves Chinese dishes with a Western touch & a classy modern finish.

From 30th June - 27th July, you'll get to enjoy a good variety of dishes for RM88.00++ per adult/RM48.00++ per child. For those who are keen to get a discount, you can also purchase the buffet voucher in advance for just RM70.00 nett!

The kitchen team will be changing the cooking style on their menu each day throughout the buffet period. Some of the styles of dishes that you can expect are as below:

During each buffet spread, you can be sure to have their 8 signature main dishes, their signature fried rice, signature fried noodles, desserts & even beverages.

Here are the variety of dishes that I've tasted :)
Satay Lamb Skewers, Satay Chicken Skewers & Satay Beef Skewers
 I must say that although their satay aren't as charred as the usual satay that you get elsewhere, their satay are interestingly delicious! The meat is tender WITHOUT any pieces of fat in between the meat & the meat were all marinated well that each piece is actually flavorful on its own.

The peanut sauce is decent; not too spicy, not too sweet nor savory. I've no complaints about it. I just enjoyed the tender meat :)

Mango Salad Prawn, Lemongrass Chicken Meatballs & Fried Wantan
These were good appetizers. My favorite was the mango salad prawn, all because there were bits of fresh prawns in the creamy, mango-filled fritter. Sweet, savory, crispy - yums! Their lemongrass chicken meatballs were also very tasty. I didn't find their fried wantan anything special though, but no complaints from me.

Lemongrass Chicken Meatball

Mango Salad Prawn

Crispy Lamb Rack
This was definitely my favorite for the night!
1. It's lamb (and it didn't have the pungent gamey taste nor smell)
2. It's crispy, tender, & juicy *drools*
3. It's well marinated with I think "nam yue" (fermented beancurd) & garlic, so it was REALLY fragrant!

This is something that you MUST NOT MISS!

Scallion Chicken Chop
Tender pieces of chicken thigh marinated with the fragrant scallion sauce. This chicken dish reminded me of my mum's cooking! I think that it's best eaten with fragrant white rice :P I'm SO Asian.

Black Pepper Ribeye
Don't be fooled by the common name nor the color/look. THIS WAS GOOD! Really tender, bursting in flavor & once again, best accompanied by fragrant white rice!

I must say that they prepare their meats pretty well! *applause*
(tasting portion)

Lemon Fish Fillet
This was my least favorite for the night as I felt the sauce was slightly heavy on the savory & sour side. It was too sour & too salty for my liking. I would much prefer the simple white fish to have a light & aromatic lemon sauce that has a tinge of sweetness to it.

Hot & Sour Prawn
 When I saw this, I thought aloud, "This needs deep-fried mantao to soak up all the yummy gravy!"
It's good. The fried prawns had the delicious roe & the gravy is just alike those sweet & sour crabs sauce. I loved it. I need to have my mantao to finish up the delish gravy!

'Golden Fragrance' Hokkien Mee
This took me by surprise! It's "kam heong lala" with hokkien mee!! Oh my goodness...it's actually pretty good :D The fragrant curry leaves, curry powder, dried shrimp, lala, noodles & dark soya sauce sure made perfect music to the mouth :P

We were actually STUFFED by the end of the meal. I probably don't do very well at buffets anymore. Blame it on age & metabolism :P

To our pleasant surprise, the chef came out with yet another dish for us to try. This Alio Scallops aren't part of the buffet spread, but it's a new item on their menu, which will begin its debut next month. It'll come in a serving of 5 large scallops for the price of RM68.00/serving.

 The bits of fried garlic & the slightly sweet + savory, crispy batter coating the juicy (perfectly cooked!) scallops were irresistible!

The best part: Check out the roe!! *drools*

Don't miss your chance to dine at In Colonial during the Ramadan month. It may not have your 80+ dishes to choose from, but you'll surely get top-grade quality dishes & lip-smacking tasting selections at their buffet spread. Do call to make your reservation to avoid disappointment :)
