The Spread @ The Gardens Hotel & Residence, Mid Valley City


Not many people know about this newly opened restaurant located inside The Gardens Hotel & Residence. My friend, Pat, walked pass by one day and was informed by the management that they were having promotion for early lunch. Paying only RM68 nett... we decided to check out on the offers. Otherwise we would have to pay RM80++ for normal price once the promotion is over.

The whole place looked deserted when we arrived, making us felt nervous if the food & drinks were not up to the standard. But everything looked just fine (^_^) - new, cosy, cool, contemporary.

I started taking photos around before we sat down to eat... starting with the fruits section. Yes they were all real and they would cut fresh on the spot for you. What you gotta do is just ask for the fruits that you want. Your wish is their command!!!

One of my favourite sections... always the first section that I took my food (^_^) fresh seafood...

Oysters... well, it was not big but fresh! All I need is lemon and Tabasco sauce... and it's good to go.

Sashimi anyone??

Tuna and abalone slices...

Salmon and seabass...

Butterfish and octopus...

Assortment of breads with 3 different butters... plain, garlic and herbs.

Cold dish... such as salad, pickled fruits, etc.

Assorted canapes...

For cheese lovers...

Local sauces... cencaluk, sambal belacan, sambal kicap, etc...

Local dishes...

Delicacies... yummy! My stomach started to groan...

See the sign??? LOL!!!!

Satays... the peanut sauce was not bad!

Make your own waffles...

One of my favourite Indian food... Chicken Tandoori!

With various types of curries...

Finally, dessert sections... looked promising!

And these too...

The reception counter..
For display only...

Actually I ate a lot of food.. but I don't wanna put too many pictures here... maybe a few!


Jenn wanted pasta... aglio olio style... the cook whipped it out for me...

This was how it looked like but it was plain and we didn't like it!

The ice cream was good... tried the black sesame and kiwi & I love it!

Leo's verdict - The Spread gave me a good first impression due to its overall soft colour for its interior. In fact, the special discount was only given for 4 diners and above. But Jenn wasn't feeling well that day, so there were only 3 of us. Still the manager gave us the discounted price. The food was OK in general... at least for me. For buffet lovers... this place is worth given a try...

c&c - the texture is just like abalone... but since abalone is tasteless, I can't be sure... anyway, my aim is oysters... lol!
