What's for dinner? Breaking fast at Kitchen Art Brasseries @ Empire Hotel

Feast on an array of traditional and special kampung-style dishes from the Northern, Southern and Eastern states at Empire Hotel’s Kitchen Art Brasseries this Ramadan.
The Seenak Warisan Ibunda promo will feature delicacies from different regions every week, namely Perak (July 21 till 30), Kelantan (July 31 till Aug 8) and Negeri Sembilan (August 9 till 18).
There will be more than 50 exciting buffet items to choose from.
One of the highlights is the Sup Gear Box, a specialty of Chef Hazif Ramli and it is available daily during this period. 
This dish is cooked for about six hours to bring out the taste and also to soften the flesh off the huge chunk of bone. Diners can use the straw to slurp up the bone marrow together with the rich soup.
I can't say how it tastes like because I do not eat beef.
There is an assortment of kerabu such as Kerabu Mangga Muda, Som Tam, Kerabu Ikan Keli, and Kerabu Kacang Botol. 
Sadly not all food items were labelled during the review so I did not know what was what.
Apart from the buffet spread, you can find grilled whole lamb, chicken and lamb kebab, bubur lambuk, ikan bakar, and roti John at the stalls. 
For dessert, there is Malay kuih, tapai pulut, pandan sago gula Melaka, pastries and cakes.
My favourite? the Ayam Goreng Berempah, which could be enjoyed on its on or with Nasi Minyak; as well as the ikan bakar that was grilled to how I like it: it was not over-grilled and the natural sweetness of the fish was retained.
Guests will be entertained with a ghazal performance daily and a fashion show by Styleicious Boutique at the Emperor Ballroom every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8pm onwards.

The buffet dinner can be enjoyed daily from July 21 till Aug 18 from 7pm to 10pm. 
It is priced at RM86++ per person (adults) and RM50++ per person (children and senior citizens). 
Buy eight and get one free if you come in a group or purchase the early bird promotion which is buy one, get one voucher, available from June 22 onwards. Drop your name card upon arrival for daily lucky draws and all diners will receive a complimentary takeaway Chicken Cornish.
Located at the hotel’s lobby level, the Kitchen Art Brasserie is divided into indoor and outdoor dining. The indoor dining hall showcases ala minute cooking by chefs alongside the buffet counter whereas, the outdoor dining area provides diners a view of the greenery across the highway.

p/s: We were not pleased to see that diners have made their way to the food before we arrived. Don't get me wrong, I'm ok with people eating before me but I'm not okay with the foods being messed up. All the foods, especially desserts (the cakes were cut up here and there, so not nice for pics) were disfigured before we managed to take photos. I hope other restaurants can let us know ahead of time so we can come before the crowd for a photo-taking session.

ok, fine, here are the photos:

Someone got to em before I took this pic, oh well.

Love the chocolate dessert :)
