‘Bazaar Kesenian’ at JP Teres, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur
JP teres at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur has a buffet dinner promotion entitled ‘Bazaar Kesenian’ from 29 May 2017 to 23 June 2017. The buffet dinner promotion which will be offering authentic Malaysian favourites and a journey of creative inspiration as Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur collaborates with Sireh Pinang Art Colony to showcase a collection of historic Malaysian visual arts curated by local artist, Raja Mohamed Nizam bin Raja Mohamad Ali.
The Sireh Pinang Art Colony is an organisation under the patronage of National Visual Arts Gallery (NVAG) and Ministry of Tourism Malaysia that represents a vast group of artists, both local and international artists in promoting the diverse genres and themes of art culture. Led by founder, patron and also a self-taught artist, Zubair Afandi Omar or also known as Zhi Long Shen, the primary goal of this organisation is to promote Malaysia’s culture, heritage, history and the ethnicity to the world with multiple art genres – from realism to impressionism.
If you’re a budding collector or art lover, or just a visitor who is interested in expanding your collection, you can visit and view the showcase at the hotel as well as make purchases.
JP teres is the hotel’s authentic Malaysian restaurant, and was designed with natural elements in mind. The establishment offers a Malaysian dining experience this Ramadan with a buffet dinner featuring local dishes at the vibrant show kitchens with chefs demonstrating their expertise at live cooking stalls and carving stations.
The buffet’s special line-up will have a variety of colours, textures and flavours, and will feature hot and cold offerings including roast whole lamb percik-style with biryani rice, nasi kandar, otak-otak daun kelapa, chicken shawarma, local-style cooked seafood dishes and much more, plus a grand selection of mouth-watering desserts such as om ali, ais krim batang, bubur pulut hitam, cendol, sago gula Melaka, kuih lopes and ais batu campur.
I liked the open kitchen concept which is similar to that or THIRTY8, where you can watch the chefs in action. Oddly enough, their Chicken Rice is one of the signature and famous dishes at this outlet and as such I had to try it. The meat was tender even though it was the chicken breast so no wonder it’s well-known here. The roast lamb was of a Middle Eastern style combined with some local flavour making a somewhat fusion dish but was nevertheless very tasty.
I also enjoyed the Middle Eastern desserts which includes Ohm Ali and a couple of others such as Baklava while the soft serve ice cream machine was very popular indeed not only with kids but adults alike (yes me too!). If you like dates, there are three (3) different varieties to choose from!
