Breakfast is in the form of an international buffet with live egg and waffle stations. My first encounter with the stationed chefs was a positive one. Asking for an egg white omelette with mixed vegetables, no butter and very little oil didn’t even raise an eyebrow and was met with no disagreement as to the amount of oil needed to avoid breakfast sticking to the fry pan. Hubby’s request for roti bon (the doubly fatty and thicker version of roti canai) was also carried out with a smile and without question.
Moseying along the buffet I was satisfied with fresh and dried fruit, low fat yoghurt, Bircher muesli and house baked wholegrain breads to kick off the day feeling wholesome. Hubby picked up sausages, beef bacon, dim sum, cheese and croissants to appease his need to clog arteries.
The Roasted Tomato Soup with basil oil is possibly one of the best I’ve had in Malaysia. It might (dare I say it) even be comparable to Chef Tommes of Chalk and Cheese… A basket of warm house baked walnut and raisin bread came on the side but was delicious all on its own. A crunchy oat impressed crust held together fluffy soft slices dispensing a contrast of textures between outer and inner.
The PREMIER Signature Salad consisted of sliced smoked turkey, roasted chicken, boiled egg, cheese, tomatoes and mixed lettuce leaves bathed in thousand island dressing. Ask for the dressing on the side and add to your own liking, as in general, and true to this example, Malaysians are generous with their condiments.

The PREMIER Burger was indeed premier. Cheese slices melted over a succulent free-range chicken breast filling a sesame seed bun dressed with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. An uncomplicated meal, slightly more wholesome than a regular patty based burger. A mini salad bowl filled with mixed greens, shredded carrots, cherry tomato halves, pickled onions and a pesto dressing attempted to tip the scales to the healthy side against the crisp haystack of French fries.
