Ying and I headed over to TEMPTations at Renaissance KL Hotel for their “Iftar Indulgence” Ramadan buffet preview where we got to try a wide variety of local and Asian specialties including traditional Malay dishes normally found during the buka puasa.

Some of the recommended items included the Nasi minyak, Nasi tomato and Nasi bukhari to an array of “gulai”, roasted whole lamb with percik sauce, gado-gado, Rojak buah, Pasembor, an assortment of crackers, pickled fruits, bubur lambuk, daging tulang rawan rendang pedas, Daging Palembang, Udang harimau masak lemak cili padi, Otak-otak kuah padang, and Kampung style ikan bakar and accompanied by its hot and spicy sauces.

There were also some ‘live cooking stations’ which prepared on order grilled seafood, chicken and beef satays with its classic peanut sauce, while the noodle station had Laksa Johor, Laksa Penang, Laksa Kelantan and Nyonya Laksa. Local favourites such as  Rendang Minang, Gulai kawah or Rendang tok are available on a rotation basis, while there are also the Western, Chinese and Indian selections available.

For sweet tooths out there, there is a large spread of Nyonya & Malay kuih such as Seri muka, Kuih kasui, Kuih lapis, Pulut panggang, Pulut inti, Kuih lompang, Kuih keria, Kuih angku, Kuih bakar, Tepung gomak, Cucur badak and Wajik. Malay cakes and snacks included – Bahulu, Dodol, Kuih bangkit, Kuih ros, Murukku, Buah rotan, Rempeyek, Kuih kapit, Kek pisang, Kek lapis and Kek kurma.

Every evening, there will be two types of Malay bubur served from an array of Bubur jagung, Bubur pulut hitam, Bubur kacang merah, Pengat keladi, Pengat pisang, Bubur cha cha, Serawa durian, Serawa pulut nangka, Bubur kacang hijau with durian and Bubur gandum.

Now here are five (5) outstanding dishes of the night.

 

Lemang - oddly enough, this was the first Ramadan buffet that I attended that had this!

Petai – part of the kerabu (salad). I prefer my petai cooked in sambal (which they also had in the hot selections section nevertheless I was quite amused to see it here

Poached Seafood - a great option for those who are very health conscious and it actually tasted quite ok especially when eaten with some soya sauce and cili padi!

Laksa Kelantan – you don’t see this variant often and it was quite nice to have it!

Satay - you can't go wrong with freshly prepared satay right off the fire
