If you miss travelling or the food that you have during your travels, you may now satisfy your culinary journey with Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel’s Internationale Dinner Buffet every weekends on Friday and Saturday nights. Reasonably priced at RM88nett per pax, take a “trip” around the world and locally through your palate.
Highly aware that COVID-19 is still lurking and lingering around, a lovely staff offered my friend and me plastic gloves fresh from the box upon entering Cafe BLD where the buffet is held. We were shown our seats to join another 2 of our friends at the same table. The table arrangement at the dining hall has seen drastic changes in order to follow social distancing rules.
Coming to the food, for appetisers, don’t miss out the fresh seafood that will greet you at the entry point. So we picked up some prawns and mussels, and dipped them in generous Tabasco sauce! There was also seafood cooked in assorted Mediterranean dishes for those who are fond of their seafood served cooked.
We then had Roasted Beef Brisket slices and it was so tender that it melts in your mouth. Drizzled with some black pepper sauce, it takes the dish to another level of oomph. Have it just like that or with Nasi Serai or Nasi Ayam both in separate counters of the large island counters. Don’t forget to have seconds or indulge in Satay grilled live.
As we’re on a culinary journey, try some Italian pastas or naan bread with selections of chicken tikka and dhal curry and leave space for variety of noodles cooked live or soaked in laksa gravy, dim sum and sushi for light munch in between full plates! Remember to explore every corner of the café so you don’t miss out on any mouthwatering flavours.
If you like to go easy on your tummy, indulge in some fresh salad with different dressings and have some bread or crackers with cheese. We took each one of them in small portions as we couldn’t resist them!
Wearing gloves that are provided to us is a must each time we take more food from the counters to our table.
Desserts are served carefully to curb any unwanted bacteria from travelling among customers. Find your favourite fruit cuts in individual cups swimming in a tub of ice. Request a staff to serve you a bowl of Sago Gula Melaka and pick up a Popsicle from the ice chamber. Needless to say, I am pleased with the safety measures that are taken by Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel.
