[Food & Beverage]
I really like the puasa month each year because I get to eat Malay food. I’m really happy to live in Malaysia (apart from the political situation of which I think could be a whole lot better) as we get to enjoy Malay, Chinese, Indian and loads more traditional food.
This time round I headed over to the Grand Millennium Hotel in KL which is centrally located along the shopping district of Bukit Bintang and is literally right beside Pavilion KL.
The buka puasa buffet at the Grand Millennium is in it’s coffeehouse The Mill Café and runs from 9 July to 7 August 2013. The buffet features a wide array of delectable dishes from the buffet spread that you can enjoy while being entertained by a live performance by the Ghazal band.
The theme this year is “Rasa Rasa Ala Kampung” and the spread of traditional Malay dishes and desserts is absolutely amazing! Andy and I were still reviewing our Panasonic Lumix cameras thus he was using the newly launched top of the line Lumix G6 while I was using the smaller but still capable Lumix GX1 (you can tell them apart below by looking at the quality of the photos).
Tomcat says – these were my favourite dishes:
- Beef satay – tender and juicy!
- Sambal buns – so cute and I love sambal!
- Fresh oysters and sashimi – always love when they are fresh
- Beef Rendang – I think it’s the Kelantan/ Terengganu Rendang Tok style which I love
- Chicken curry – eat this one with the naan
- Bubur Lambuk
- Pengat Pisang
- Malay desserts – what a huge selection! Even a pasar malam/ pasar Ramadan doesn’t have this many!
The Buka Puasa Buffet Dinner is priced at RM108.00++ per person.
There is also an Early Bird Special if you book and pay by 14 July 2013 for only RM100.00 nett per adult while it’s RM62.64 nett per child (ages 5 to 12 years old).
