(Click on the title links for more details, maps and photos of the food and location)
With views of the iconic Petronas Towers, a reputation for being one of the finest steak houses in the city, and a semi-buffet semi-table service concept, this is one of the best brunch deals in town. It’s priced at RM138++ per person for food or RM198++ per person with free flow Carlsberg beer, wine and Prosecco.
Thirty8 is another location offering stunning views of the twin towers and city centre, this time however with a bird’s eye perspective. From the 38th floor of the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, guests have unobstructed vistas through double storey floor-to-ceiling windows. Add the pleasant environment to a seemingly never-ending spread of fresh seasonal ingredients, live cooking stations and delectable desserts and you have yourself a very agreeable afternoon. Sunday brunch prices begin at RM222 nett per person without alcohol, rising to RM370 nett for the free-flow option that includes prosecco, selected cocktails, and the very drinkable Benchmark 2013 Chardonnay and Shiraz.
With Neroteca, recently adding a new location at Plaza Damansara, and opening up their brunch to both Saturday and Sunday, a leisurely afternoon noshing on the best of Italian cold cuts, cheeses, pastas and porky products is now even more accessible. Nerotecca Plaza Damansara’s buffet bubbly brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3pm at RM88 for food only, and RM188 inclusive of free flow house wine and Prosecco.
|Ante Kitchen and Bar|
The pork specialists in Publika, Ante Kitchen and Bar, prefer to leave the decision making up to the guests. Offering a solid range of porkylicious brunch items, and a range of bubbly from which to select, diners can craft their own sparkling affair.
El Cerdo offeres one of the best value brunches around with a cold cuts buffet, roast pork carving station and selected à la carte orders. El Cerdo’s Sunday brunch is available from 12noon – 2:30pm and priced at RM148 for the porky food line up including free flow cava, Tiger draft beer, red and white house wines, soft drinks and juices.
A light-hearted and whimsical experience awaits you and your friends at Shook!’s Mad Hatter brunch, running every Sunday from 12 noon to 4pm at Feast Village, Starhill Gallery. Champagne drinkers will be set back RM298++ for the pleasure of Moet Chandon, while non-drinkers will pay a more modest RM188++ for a mind-boggling spread of food from Western, Indian, Japanese, Malay and Chinese kitchens. Wouldn’t you say it’s time to bring a little Madness into your week?
|The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur|
Elegant, classy, gracious – all of those things that sum up the brand The Ritz-Carlton are also true of their Sunday Bubbly Roast. With a concise buffet of very high standard, and a free flow of Laurent-Perrier Champagne, all to the sounds of trio of musicians, it’s a stylish way to spend a Sunday. The Sunday roast begins at RM196 for food alone, rises to RM348 for a free flow of wines, and reaches RM465 to also include Champagne.
|Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur|
One of the original Champagne brunches in the city, Prego has stood the test of time with its line up of Italian goodies and endless flow of bubbly, wine, beer and cocktails. Bubbalicious is a fun way to pass a Sunday.
