It not long ago from my last visit to Equatorial Hotel and I am return here again for Ramadhan Buka Puasa Buffet. Restaurant is very spaces and nice decorated, ample of walking space in between and at the buffet counter. Right in front of the restaurant is a big pool with lot of coconut tree that look like a beach, live band performance during our visit but to enjoy you need to sit outside which is very comfortable as well.
Assorted Keropok and bakery. There is 5 different type of Keropok and all are fresh and crispy. Assorted bread and bun are available as well but seem like not much people eating since it is dinner buffet anyway.
Fresh Fruits Counter with assorted pickle, fresh fruits such as Dragon Fruits, Watermelon, Jambu, Passion Fruits, Orange and Papaya. Fruits served here are quite special especially Dragon Fruits and Passion Fruits which I never see it served on other buffet restaurants.
Acar-Acar is a traditional Malay pickle vegetable that served with chili sauce and peanuts. Vegetable such as carrot, cucumber, onion, shallot and chili are pickle in vinegar, it taste sweet and sour with a little spicy taste.
Assorted Desserts such as Moist Chocolate Cake, Pecan Nut Brownie Cake, Linzer Cake, Black Forest Cake, Raspberry Mousse, Cheese & Carrot Cake, Chocolate Brownies, Bubur Kacang Hijau, Bread and Butter Pudding. Overall dessert taste good but slightly sweet to my liking.
Nasi Lemak Station, according to Chef they grow those herbs in house and use for cooking. It is very fresh and healthy, there is two type of steamed rice served here white color Nasi Lemak (Coconut Milk) and blue color Nasi Kelabu (Butterfly-pea flowers). Those are typical Malaysian breakfast, rice served with ikan bilis, peanuts, salted egg, boiled egg and cucumber with sambal.
Equatorial Chili Crab is so delicious, honestly it is one of the best dishes we eat throughout the buffet line. Fresh is extremely fresh and the most important still the chili sauce which taste sweet and spicy, it is really delicious.
Coffee Machine, every time i saw Coffee Machine i feel excited and never miss to make a cup of Afogato (Expresso + Vanilla Ice Cream) but due to the caffeine reaction i can't sleep till late midnight so i skip this round.
Barbeque Corner served many type of protein such as various sausage, lamb satay, chicken satay, lamb, beef and chicken wings. The lamb and beef are nicely cook to flavor and tender while the satay as well taste very good.
Mongolian BBQ, pan grilled assorted meat with vegetable with Mongolian sauce. There is squid, prawn, chicken, lamb and beef. Customer can choose what they want and the chef will cook it fresh for you.
