My Garden, KLCC, Food and Men (Part II)
There were three main parts to the buffet, the salads and starters, the main courses and the dessert - overall, the selection of foods looked rather limited. I always loved the salad section of any buffet and that evening was no exception. I loved the dips (tahini, amongst others). The main courses were disappointing to me, though HIM claimed that the Lamb Meatballs were excellent while I found the dish too gamey.
They also served fish and chips. I was pretty stunned at that but I presumed that this very English dish had probably made it into the cuisines of both Lebanon and Iran but I would hardly have considered it as part of the authentic Lebanese or Persian cuisines!! To be fair, though, the fish and chips were tasty - the fish was rather dryer and firmer/harder compared to the moist and flaky fish in a normal fish-n-chip platter while the chips had some spices added to make it more flavourful.
Next, the dessert - again, the choices were rather limited but there were a couple of interesting looking pudding, one of which was the rice and milk with chopped nuts, raisin and a kind of small reddish fruit, much like our Chinese wolfberry fruit (枸 杞).
Frankly speaking, anything with nuts (all nuts!) automatically fall under my category of "Food of Choice" :-) The small reddish dried fruits was pretty sour but it enhances the flavour of the pudding. I must admit that the pudding was very very good and I had seconds!
Finally, of course, Arabic coffee - served in a dainty little cup - and hence the sight that triggered off that section about the plant in my garden!
By then I was rather full and all in all, the meal was pretty scrumptious and good value for the money paid! On the men, there were a couple of very good looking waiters there and one, in particular, a tall fair Chinese guy, was exceptionally attractive :-)
When we finish dinner, we took a walk on the same floor and saw this big sign .....
I had written about ordering "a la carte men" in an earlier article "Mushrooms, Belly Buttons and Men". Maybe, finally, I could get a man baked to order !!! and I was telling HIM that maybe I can asked them to baked me some of his parts in case he wore them out and as a bonus, a clone of the Chinese waiter we saw at Al Marjan :-)
As we got nearer, I was half-fantasizing and half-expecting to see twinks in bakers hat and skimpy aprons doing the baking .......
Oh well, this being Malaysia, one had to make do with fantasy instead.
