Got the chance to go to the annual Original Macam-Macam Ada Mega Buffet of Grand Margherita (Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia) to try out their Ramadan buffet. My first time eating here.
Huge buffet! Mega indeed! We were there quite late and couldn’t take much photos as all the food were already “damaged” by the diners hahaha… Too many people to take proper photos too. First step into the poolside area, I was trying to grasp for air, HOT and STUFFY! Goodness… Sweats were practically trickling down from my forehead and neck. The hot weather wasn’t helping. I really pity those who work there, how to work in such heat?
They are collaborating with many sponsors and chefs from other places too.
International and local cuisines. There’s Penang stalls serving Penang laksa, char kueh tiaw, lo bak, and har mee. Also have sushi.
Very true to its claims, macam-macam ada! All sort of things available. The buffet is just too big! Means, you have to walk a lot to get your food. Imagine a hawker centre except you are not served but you have to carry your own food. I spilled some of my Penang Laksa gravy along the way… Oppsss…
Left: Not just outside at the pool where you can get food but also in the restaurant itself. A lot of choices in and out, hard to choose what to eat.
Right: From the Penang stalls. I had the Penang laksa and lo bak. It’s so hot, the laksa was slightly spicy, made me even hotter *LOL*. Lo bak was good.
Left: Satay and some grilled vegetables. The former was great, very tender; the latter was not bad too especially the capsicum… I love capsicum.
Right: Sought after sushi… Poor chef working non-stop, one-man show too.
Left: They have pizza but I didn’t eat any of them, I gave it to my other dining partner. I was a bit stuffed.
Right: More sushi *LOL* However, I didn’t like the sushi, I rather have it in a Japanese restaurant. The quality wasn’t quite there. I guess it was because the chef had to prepare so much to feed so many people. Kind of pity the chef with no help.
Left: The craze of gula apong ice cream, they follow the trend too. Good quality ice cream but not much of the gula apong taste. Couldn’t find crushed peanut or almond flakes, it would be awesome to have them! It was so hot that the ice cream melted so fast!
Right: The dessert… We took this whole plate to share but we couldn’t finish them, just a bit of each. Too sweet -.-” Couldn’t taste much but sweetness only.
Overall experience, it was above average due to the heat and the buffet was too big and spread out. Food was as expected.
The buffet is still on until 16th July. Adult is RM100nett while children is RM50nett. For the price you are paying with such selections, it’s reasonable. Just be sure that you don’t mind the heat. For more information, call 082-532111.
