All you fans of salmon and all Norwegian crustaceans, there’s an interesting promo coming your way.
From tomorrow onwards till Friday, check out InterContinental Kuala Lumpur’s buffet spread at Serena Brasserie, that will feature Norwegian seafood flown specially for this event. It’s short, a mere 4 days, so don’t say we didn’t tell you.

This will be a good opportunity to meet Norwegian guest chef, Markus Dybwad. If you think he looks familiar, that’s because we met him here, at this Norwegian Seafood Gala dinner before. In fact, all the seafood comes from Frank Naesheim’s company, so we know the food’s got to be good. This humble and young chef has a wealth of experience from Scandinavia as well as Europe including three Michelin star restaurant, The Fat Duck alongside celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal.
Guests will be able to see Norwegian Chef Markus live at the action station preparing a delectable assortment of codfish, salmon, halibut and blue mussels.
We loved this trout, prepared live, by the Chefs, that had a coat of Leek Ash, and Salmon roe – incredibly briny and delicious..
Other mouth-watering creations to savour include traditional Scandinavian specialities such as cold dishes of skagen salad (creamed seafood salad); smoked salmon with scrambled eggs; selection of herrings; smoked mackerel; smoked salmon; cured salmon trout ‘Gravalaks’ style; and hot signatures such as baked salmon fillet; halibut in cream sauce; Atlantic cod with soy butter and red fish with ratatouille.
Permeating local flavours into the delicacy, InterContinental Kuala Lumpur executive chef Sam Kung has come up with a range of variety for guests to have a taste of exotic local spices. The in the know specials will showcase fragrant salmon satay, salmon tandoori and green curry with Atlantic cod.
Giant Octopus hiding behind the tuna, at the sushi bar!
The Larger Oysters are Canadian and the smaller ones from France. I always like the tinier oysters as they are way sweeter!
BBQ station outside of the restaurant… take you pick from mussels, squid, salmon, butterfish etc..
Very smoky outside.. best to take your food and run indoors!
Scallops were a little small and salty – I prefer the hugeass ones.. but none in sight..
A fabulous mee mamak/ mee rebus – since the international counters are also open, there’s a good choice of local hawker favourites, including satay and nasi lemak bungkus.
OMG! Best find here tonight were the ice-creams – World’s most insanely tasty Blueberry icecream and Figs & Honey ice-cream.. Worth adding a few inches to the waist!
