Sundays are lazy days for me. I sleep in a bit and sometimes I go to the wet market and sometimes I head for a massage. Most people would go for a long lazy brunch. It gets even longer when there’s champagne involved. If you fall into this group, then why not head for the Sunday Bubbly Brunch at the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur? After all, it only happens on the last Sunday of the month – so, that’s not too extravagant an indulgence, is it?
Happening at Serena Brasserie, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant from 12.00pm till 3.00pm, there’s plenty of time to pamper oneself on the range of gastronomic delights laid out in the buffet. The pricing is based on several tiers:
Buffet Brunch: RM150 nett per adult; RM76 nett per child (5-11 years old)
Add on: RM30 nett for free-flowing soft drinks & juices
Buffet Brunch + free-flowing wine & beer: RM150 nett
Buffet Brunch + free-flowing champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks & juices: RM250 nett
There’s a dedicated corner “castle” for kids where a spread of children’s favourites are served. Kids will love the super salad, mini sandwiches, fish fingers, chocolate brownies, cookies and candies there. There’s a clown to entertain the little ones when they are not busy decorating cupcakes.
At the Mimosa Bar, guests get to choose from a selection of fresh juices and if champagne is included, try out the refreshing exotic mixtures of Laurent-Perrier champagne with orange or wild berries, lychee, peach and strawberries.
Fresh seafood on ice, crisp salads, sushi, cold cuts and cheeses are great to start the brunch with. There are Fine de Claire oysters, Australian spanner crabs, pacific prawns, slipper lobsters, NZ green lip mussels and Alaskan king crabs to choose from. If fresh raw oysters are not your thing, you can have them baked a la oyster Rockefeller style.
We fell in love with these little pails of bread, fresh from the oven!
We loved the live-grill station where our favourite sausages were barbecued, together with chilled sirloin, Norwegian salmon, slipper lobsters, lamb chops, beef patties and tiger prawns.
Freshly-cooked pasta of your choice!
Favourites which stood out were the Beef Wellington and made-to-order Vietnamese spring rolls. The Asian main courses like “Har Lok” (Cantonese stir-fried prawns), Squids with Cashews, Ayam Goreng Berempah and ever-popular satay are not to be missed.

Save some tummy space for the desserts. Their acclaimed pastry chef, Chan Eng Hua outdid himself with a huge variety of luscious crepe samurai, chocolate raspberry tartlets, pavlova, mille-feuille, mango lassi mousse with hazelnut crumble and more.
