Johor Western Food Buffet at La Prosperidad De Restaurant 兴旺发西式自助餐 in Kulai

My friend Mandy invited me to visit her relative Adrian's newly opened La Prosperidad De restaurant in Kulai. Besides it's rather unique tongue twister of a name, LPD's unique selling point is that it serves all you can eat Western food buffet at RM28.90 nett. Yes, you heard it right - RM28.90 nett all you can eat Western buffet. Wait! There is more. Children pay only RM13.90. (Sounding like TV commercial :P )

La Prosperidad De is a simple, small shop lot restaurant. The tacky décor and basic layout of the buffet line reminded me of those cafés at dinghy small budget hotels.

The young kitchen crew is led by Amos (right) who is also a partner at La Prosperidad De. Amos had trained in Kuala Lumpur, worked in Singapore and now a partner in his own start up.

Initially, I was healthily sceptical about what kind of food a customer would get for a RM28:90 nett all you can eat buffet.

There turned out to be a couple of pleasant surprises.

My favourite dish of the evening was La Prosperidad De's chicken chop. It was a well marinated thick, chunky piece of grilled chicken topped with savoury sauce. The chicken was juicy, tender and nicely sweet. I can easily and happily go for two of this chicken chop in one sitting.

La Prosperidad De's fish and chips was another winner in my opinion.

The batter was nicely browned encasing quite thick strips of dory that were still succulent and sweet. This was better than some places that slice their dory too thin and made it too dry. Inexpensive fish and chips are seldom palatable but LPD's version bucks the trend.

La Prosperidad De also serves pretty good lamb chops made with Aussie lamb. Nicely grilled, still tender and juicy with that lovely gamey flavour that lamb lovers enjoy. However, understandably for cost reasons, each customer is limited to only one lamb chop per person.

The spaghetti today was average with the pasta a little limp.

Besides the main courses there are various sides. There is even a clunky small chocolate fondue fountain - a crowd pleaser, especially for the young.

There are also soups, salads, wieners, sausages, French fries and other sides which I didn't explore. Am already stuffed, just tasting the chops.

It was near full house when we were there on a rainy evening - value seekers have already found La Prosperidad De. Not surprisingly, most were families with children.

If you are shopping with family at Johor Premium Outlets and want to explore small town Kulai, a simple dinner at La Prosperidad De may be an option.

  1. The chicken chop and fish and chips tasted good but presentation wise is not very appetizing.

  2. For those going for the buffet, do take note that they have stopped this service. I'd made a trip to the restaurant on 15 February 2014 and was disappointed as only ala carte order is available. Their waitress told me that the boss intend to restart the buffet in March 2014 and only on weekends, but this decision is still not confirmed yet. Also, the price of the buffet may be revised.

  3. Confirmed that buffet not available. When there after returning from a day trip to Melaka, SInce ready there might as well try their ala carte. Not bad.

  4. visited April. The chicken is not so good. Spagetti is average. Strongly believe it just not as good as describe. Only normal western restaurant with average service and pricey food.

  5. Wah... My wife is from Kulai. Check the whole list with her and my in-laws. All cannot make it :( they said older generation version are good. Now new generations one sucks. Especially the fish ball soup.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
