With the holy month of Ramadhan going into full swing, many are looking for nice venues to break fast. One of the latest hotels to open in Petaling Jaya, New World Petaling Jaya Hotel takes dining to a whole new level with a tasteful take on community dining with its lively market-style set-up at Pasar Baru.
Delicious Kampung spread
The hotel’s Executive Chef – Alexander Chong, together with his master chefs have skilfully put together a sumptuous buffet spread which features over 100 mouth-watering dishes of local and traditional Malaysian delicacies, promising an exceptional dining experience for all.
We started off with a selection of freshly imported seafood such as yabbies, bamboo clams and succulent crabs and prawns. Next were traditionally prepared Malay dishes from the main buffet counter, including Pasar Baru’s signature made-to-order beef and chicken satay, freshly grilled seafood and traditional ‘bubur lambuk’ . Those looking for lighter and healthier options can toss up their own ulam-ulam or pick from a variety of ready-made salads on offer.
Pasar Baru’s magnificently roasted lamb is one of the best we’ve had so far, succulent and crispy to the bite and accompanied with home-made sauces. Actually I felt the lamb tasted better without any sauces!
Finally we ended the feast on a high note, with a variety of delicious confections all beautifully plated at the dessert counter. What I liked about this was that the desserts were kept fresh and replenished often. We had sago gula Melaka, blueberry cheese tarts, a selection of home-made Malay kuih and soft-serve ice-cream.
Dates are a must for breaking fast
To add to the merriment of the occasion, guests can get up close and personal with the chefs at the various live-action stations and watch first-hand as they prepare and serve delightful fare, especially the enticing noodles and lok-lok station. Curry Laksa is my absolute favourite here!
The “Medan Kampung” buffet is available from 17 May – 14 June 2018, 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
RM168 nett per adult
RM84 nett per child aged 12 years & senior citizens aged 60 years and above
