The holy month of Ramadhan has just started last weekend and we are now in the first week of the fasting month. Even before the dawning of Ramadhan, many hotels have already launched their special Buka Puasa buffets. The earliest invitation I received was from Empire Hotel Subang to check out their special buffet spread at their Kitchen Art Brasserie.
Diners get to feast on wholesome home-style dishes here. From the array of traditional and kampong-style dishes, there are more than 50 items to choose from. Delicacies from different regions will be featured weekly:
- PERAK (21-30 July 2012)
- KELANTAN (31 July – 8 August 2012)
- NEGERI SEMBILAN (9-18 August 2012)
A must-try item is the Sup Gear Box – you can’t miss that gigantic bone propped up in the soup bowl. A specialty of Chef Hazif Ramli, the soup is boiled for 6 hours to bring out the taste and to soften the meat off that huge chunk of bone. Don’t be shy to use the straw to slurp up the bone marrow together with the rich spice-infused soup!
Apart from the buffet tables in the funky Kitchen Art Brasserie, stalls have been set up on the terrace outside offering delicacies like bubur lambuk, ikan bakar, satay, roti john, pisang goring, chicken & lamb kebabs and grilled whole lamb. While waiting for your food to be cooked at the stalls, feast your eyes on the commanding view across the Federal Highway.
The desserts spread stretches from pastries and cakes to traditional Malay kueh, tapai pulut, pandan sago gula Melaka and cookies kept in old-fashioned glass jars.
To enhance the atmosphere, guests are entertained with a ghazal performance at Kitchen Art Brasserie daily and fashion show by Styleicious Boutique held at the Emperor Ballroom every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8.00pm onwards.
This Seenak Warisan Ibunda buffet dinner is available daily from 21 July to 18 August 2012 from 7.00pm-10.00pm. Price: RM86++ per person (adults) and RM50++ per person (children and senior citizens). There’s also a group discount of buy 8, get 1 free. Drop your namecard upon arrival for their daily lucky draw and all diners receive a complimentary takeaway Chicken Cornish.
