Essence @ Sheraton Imperial Hotel


Sheraton Imperial's current buffet promo of unlimited New Zealand oysters with a free flow of wine at RM128++ per person is a decent deal.


The smallish-looking oysters, ready to be shucked only on order.


Some skillful knife work to prise them out of their shells.


Absolutely addictive; we must have eaten dozens of these. Not at all bland like regular buffet oysters tend to be; these were briny, with a clean but flavorsome finish.


There were cooked versions available, with toppings such as beef bacon & cheese, but the raw ones tasted much, much better.


The wine wasn't top-notch, but it was satisfactory enough.

  1. ROFL. An oyster buffet, no less! Would love to go there one more time before the promo ends. BE says I'm going to get blood contamination. Grin.

  2. Lemongrass: remind him that oysters are an excellent source of zinc, which has numerous health benefits ... boosting the immune system, curbing eczema and increasing testosterone production :D

  7. actually i prefer the small oysters than the big ones. I find them better and less "overwhelming & sickening" compared to its giant counterparts
