While others wrote about breakfast selections and even come up with a list of breakfast hot spots, you can barely see it here. With a full time job during the day, photos editing during the night, and also occasional wedding jobs / florist assistant scope during weekends (and I'm not complaining about all the opportunities) , I just tend to appreciate every possible hour of getting up late. In fact, I consider waking up naturally is the simplest form of blessing one could possibly have.
Still, breakfast is vital for the body and its benefits have been proven in so many ways. I couldn't risk skipping breakfast, perhaps a late one but lunch time might be closer than my stomach can handle.
Brunch, would be the perfect solution.
Thanks to the invitation from Thirty8 that both Agnes and I get to enjoy ourselves at their Sunday Brunch buffet, on 38th floor overlooking the captivating scenery of Kuala Lumpur.
(again, I love reviews that do not require me to buzz the alarm)
Dining at Thirty8 with its 360 degrees unobstructed view of Kuala Lumpur was great, but watching how those chefs in their open kitchen preparing my customized order from fresh ingredients to piping hot dishes was even better. For one moment I felt like I was in the set of Iron Chef but with very friendly chefs. The dishes were then sent to my table without any indication of numbering/area. After all, there were limited tables at Thirty8 and it was all about getting personal.
There were 3 cuisines in general: Western, Chinese and Japanese.
Now, the best thing about being in buffet spread is to sample a bit of everything.
I adore beautiful texture of raw meat especially the balanced layers of fat and flesh. Still, Thirty8 Japanese chefs did not excel as these sashimi pieces were the best I can find from the selection. Keep the best on plate and let presentation do the talking.
A simple photo that shows how well-trained their staffs are: Realizing that the spoons were missing, the waiter brought us 2 spoons and placed in 2 different directions in case we were to share.
Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” sang by this little girl and the live band certainly was the best highlight of the day.
After meal dessert was inevitable. Though their macarons have improved in terms of texture from my previous unfavorable review on Thirty8 afternoon tea, I wish they would consider on lowering the sweetness level too.
