No Ramadan spread is complete without the ubiquitous roast lamb - at Le Meridien Putrajaya, the lamb is marinated with Arabic spices and is slow roasted for 4 hours. The roast lamb was tender and well-marinated, best savoured with the Mandy rice.

One of the highlights of the spread is the Ayam Ungkep, a traditional family favorite rarely found in restaurants around the city. This dish has its roots in Javanese cooking and is prepared using traditional spices, dressed with local herbs and will be featured on the menu every evening.
There will also be a range of appetizers such as kerabu (Malay salads), ulam-ulaman and seafood on ice such as flower crabs, prawns and oysters.

Seafood on ice
Be sure to check out the gulai kawah and gulai ayam, served out of large woks... this is a specialty dish from the state of Kelantan.
I loved the daging dendeng, a recipe from Chef Nizam's grandmother from Perak. Thinly sliced beef is cooked in a sweet and spicy sauce - simply delectable!

Udang Goreng Cili Api
Belacan Fried Chicken & Cheesy Banana Fritter
There will be five live stations, featuring daily specials such as dim sum, yong tau foo, stir fried radish cake, and grill seafood/meat.
The grilled fish is highly recommended.
Otak-otak and satar
If you are a fan of Japanese cuisine, there will be sushi rolls, salmon and tuna sashimi as well as tempura in the Japanese counter.
For desserts, we recommend the Turkish ice cream - lovely, creamy and lots of fun! There will also be rojak buah, cakes and pastries, cheese, as well as local desserts such as kuih, roti durian, and cendol.
