Seafood at Curate, Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Cold seafood on ice is what I always start to eat during a buffet dinner. There were slipper lobsters, oysters, prawns, scallops, mussels and soft shell crabs.
There are many types of sauces for the fresh seafood including lemons slices. The sauces available here at Curate are cocktail sauces, American cocktail sauces, honey mustard and shallot mignonette. Do you know that Shallot mignonette is traditionally served with raw oysters?
One of my favourite seafood, the slipper lobsters. Slipper lobsters are quite common in a buffet restaurant and popular among the customers.
Fresh prawns on ice are also available at Curate. This type of prawn is also my favourite buffet item. The prawns here for the Christmas buffet are fresh and sweet.
The fresh prawns are arranged nicely in this circle shape. The prawns look fresh and indeed it is fresh when I tried one.
