Now, I like how Hilton Petaling Jaya has labeled their Buka Puasa buffet as “Ramadhan Bazaar”. It is so apt. The whole Paya Serai is like a bustling gourmet bazaar! There is food laid out in every corner… and I do mean every corner and aisle and turning. Well, you can’t blame them for maximizing every square metre because this extravagant spread has more than 100 local as well as international delights. What’s more – the buffet menu is on rotation every day so there is always something new to try!
Paya Serai has always been well-known for its extensive range of delicious local Malay dishes and this is the place to head to if one wants to satisfy any such cravings.
As it is now the holy month of Ramadhan, Paya Serai’s brigade of talented chefs, led by Chef Noor Hisham are spoiling guests with choices from authentic “kampong” delights to quintessential Malay dishes to Indian, Chinese cuisine and hawker food.
The starters and appetizers table holds centre court and on it there are scrumptious western salads and local items like Buah Jeruk, Acar Buah Sri Rampai, Kerabu Sotong Kering, Kerabu Nangka, Tauhu Sumbat, Bubur Lambuk and Sup Soto Ayam.
The main courses cover a few tables… meander your way around and feast on Rendang Daging Tok, Burung Puyuh Goreng Madu, Lobster Slipper Masak Lemak Belimbing, Fish Head Curry, Chicken and Beef Serunding, Udang Tumis, Roast Duck, Sweet Sour Flower Crabs, Gulai Nangka Masak Lada Hitam, Ayam Pongteh, Nasi Bokhari Ayam and loads more! Near the entrance, more stalls have been set up to serve shawamar made from freshly sliced meats roasting on rotating skewers, nasi lemak with a variety of condiments and assam laksa. On the other side, there’s a stall serving tempura – all freshly fried on-the-spot. Don’t miss out the Lok-lok, Roti Canai & Murtabak stalls and the Putu Piring guy will be quite disappointed if you skip his stall too.
Not to be left out is the cold seafood counter where fresh oysters, boiled tiger prawns, flower crabs, mussels and slipper lobsters tempt you with their sweet marine freshness.
Go crazy at the desserts section because the choices are simply lavish. There is wide range of colourful Malay kuih, French pastries, continental cakes, jellies, puddings, ice creams and the all-time favourite: chocolate fountain and fruit skewers.
There’s no way anyone can possibly try everything there. You just have to narrow down your choices and focus on your favourites! Do try their Kerabu Perut – it’s one of my favourites.
Available from 7pm to 10.30pm, the abundant feast is priced at RM129++ per adult. Children below 12 years old enjoy a 50% discount.
