[Macau] Urban Kitchen 名廚都匯- Buffet at JW Marriott
A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of spending a night over in Macau at JW Marriott to experience the JW Treatment at the invitation of the hotel. Not only did we get to dine at a few of the F&B outlets at the hotel, we also got some behind the scene insights into what makes JW Marriott unique when it comes to their servicing. The founder of JW Marriott once said "Take care of your employees and they'll take care of your customers" and that philosophy still holds true today. Throughout our stay, there were little touches and attention to details that made us feel warm and welcomed.
We had an amazing view of Galaxy Macau from our room including the Grand Resort Deck which houses the world's longest river ride and largest wave pool - it's definitely a reason to come back in warmer climate!
The personal touches and handwritten notes were heartwarming - they provided a cable tie for my phone charger and a wiping cloth for my camera during the turndown service even though I didn't request them.
The gorgeous view from our room provided a beautiful backdrop for our in-room continental breakfast which included eggs, sides and drinks of your choice.
Wish that my breakfast spread looked like this everyday!
For lunch, we checked out the famous international buffet at Urban Kitchen which is divided into six different food zones including the seafood bar, Macau/Portugal/Tuscany cuisines, Cantonese/Beijing/Sichuan cuisines, Japan/Korea cuisines, desserts, and beverages. The restaurant is opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner with dinner being the most popular apparently because of the large variety of seafood available - check out what I had below at the lunch buffet!
My favorite was probably the Peking duck wraps at the Chinese food station.
One of the Peking ducks came out fresh from the oven!
The prime rib was also divine with lots of sauces to choose from.
The seafood counter included crabs, prawns, mussels, clams, sashimi and sushi.
The salad counter also included cold cuts and cheese.
The noodle station was made to order - just collect what kind of noodles and vegetable you want in a bowl and it will be prepared right in front of you.
All kinds of beverages were available including Hong Kong style milk tea, coffee, freshly squeezed juices and wines.
And of course who can forget the dessert corner! It's always my favorite part of buffets and here you can choose from cakes, pastries, fruits and even soft serve ice cream that we pulled straight from the machines ourselves!
For a hotel buffet, the prices at Urban Kitchen are pretty reasonable for the quality of the food - lunch starts from MOP$298 and dinner starts from MOP$498. Stay tuned for my write up on the Man Ho Chinese Restaurant at JW Marriott Macau!
