Sparkalite, Bubbly Brunch at Serena Brasserie, InterContinental Kuala Lumpur
The natural bright setting of Serena Brasserie at InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is the perfect location for an Aussie Malaysian themed sparkling brunch. Running water lines the glass walled air conditioned inside and waterfalls, tropical trees and fish ponds provide natural refreshment out. The great outdoors is often thought of as synonymous with Australia and this fragment of foliage in the city centre is a faultless location for a Down Under inspired bubbly barbecue.

Besides the rows of hot dishes, salads, breads, cheeses and sweets, a bevy of live stations offer plates cooked to order. Head straight to Bruce’s Aussie Barbie for grilled meats, poultry and seafood cooked to your liking. Nearby (although the sign reads 150km away) is the Burger Man, Fish n’ Chips and Egg Buddies stalls where you can request your fancy to be cooked on the spot.

The dessert bar boasts some Aussie (no arguments from you New Zealanders out there) treats not to be missed. Lamingtons (squares of sponge rolled in chocolate and coconut) and Rocky Road (marshmallow, biscuits and cherries bonded with milk chocolate) should be first on your plate. Fresh fruit, cakes, flans, puddings and chocolate inspired creations fill in the surrounds. Sticky Caramel and Banana Pudding and Berry Cheesecake too are justifiable calories.
Not one, but three sparkling wines are ready to fizz up your afternoon. Arthur Metz Cremant D’Alsace Brut from France is a blend of pinot blanc, fresh and fruity going well with seafood and white meat. From Australia the Seppelt Stony Peak Brut NV is a chenin blanc, colombard and semillon blend achieving a young lively wine with a rich fruit character and some yeast complexity. The Val d’Oca Prosecco Superiore DOCG Millesimato provides the third option with an extra dry finish perfect for fish and shellfish. Top up your bubbly with a splash of Blue Curacao, Crème de Cassis or Dry Orange Curacao and fresh berries to create a cocktail of your own devising. Also up for the imbibing is a fruity Lindeman’s Semillon Chardonnay and a Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon. Tiger Beer on the other hand might be just the right accompaniment for your Aussie style barbie. Tea, coffee and freshly squeezed juices are a plenty for those who wish to remain sober.
