The Lost Food Project currently rescues an average of 10 tonnes of food per week from going into landfill and redistributes the food to those in need, including 33,000 residents living in low cost flats and other charities. Every cover sold at participating Shangri-La Malaysia restaurants will help The Lost Food Project feed an additional 20 people.

Uncle Chan’s Ice Cream Potong
Ice Cream Potong is one of Chef Chan’s favourite dessert, according to him, he and his mother enjoy dessert very much. He still remember when he was younger, they will visit the night market during the weekends and they will have Ice Cream Potong together. In the olden days, Ice Cream Potong came in large blocks and was cut into small shapes and served in a slice of bread. Chef Chan’s favourite is red bean whilst his mother loves sweet corn.
Aunty Sze Wei’s Homemade Tau Foo Fah
A soft tofu that is submerged into a sweet syrup, this local favourite dessert resonates with many Malaysian childhoods, including Chef Sze Wei who used to help her grandmother to sell her popular Tau Foo Fah at the market. Tender, silky and smooth, Chef Sze Wei adds ginger syrup to enhance the taste of the ordinary palm sugar, making it the perfect treat to cool of your body during the hot weather.
Rojak Buah Pak Amin
Rojak, which means mixture, is commonly a teatime dish that mixes different fruits with a tangy, peanut sauce.

Santapan Warisan at Pasar Baru

The hotel’s Executive Chef – Joshua Er, together with his master chefs have skillfully put together a buffet spread which feature over 100 mouth-watering dishes of local and traditional Malaysian delicacies.
There’s a selection of imported seafood such as yabbies, bamboo clams and crabs and prawns. Then indulge in the 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 their own ulam-ulam (mixed viands) or pick from a variety of ready-made salads on offer.
A must-have is Pasar Baru’s roasted lamb, which is accompanied with a whole variety of sauces. For sweet tooths, there are many desserts including sago gula Melaka, blueberry cheese tarts, a selection of home-made Malay kuih, and you can even make your own sundae with soft-serve from the ice-cream machine.
The various live-action stations will give diners a first-hand view of the preparation as the chefs prepare and serve the fare, from noodles noodle and lok-lok station to roti canai, murtabak, and even crepes at the dessert section.
My personal favourite is the steamed chicken rice which is really tender and juicy. Have it with lots of ginger and the special garlic chili sauce! The curry noodles is pretty decent too and you can load it up with lots of ingredients!
