The centrepiece for the Ramadan buffet is the Nasi Kambing Sumbat, roasted whole lamb stuffed with Arabic fragrant rice. The meat was tender and well-spiced, simply irresistible. Another highlight of the buffet is Chef Zaki's Slow braised beef shin rendang, which has been slow cooked for over 7 hours and seasoned generously with traditional Asian spices of salt, pepper, cinnamon, and star anise.
Chef Zaki also recommends that diners check out the Masak lemak itik and Pucuk rebung masak lemak (Bamboo shoots cooked in coconut milk) at the buffet line, as he reckons it's pretty rare to find these traditional dishes elsewhere.
The must-have porridge dish during Ramadan - bubur lambuk
Sup ekor (oxtail soup)
Check out the array of curries available such as Crab Curry, Fish Head Curry, Ayam Masak Merah, Gulai Kambing, and Gulai Itik. I love the crab curry while my dining partner just couldn't get enough of the fish head curry.
Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak - patin fish cooked in fermented durian
Don't forget to check out the grill station, for some satay, grilled fish, squid and prawns.
There will also be murtabak, roti canai, nasi lemak, cucur udang, cucur cempedak, keropok udang and pasembur.
Adding variety to the A-List buffet are dishes from the Chinese, Indian and Western kitchen. Diners can indulge in Wok-fried teriyaki char siew chicken, Steamed whole sea bass with ginger sauce, Lamb pot pie, Barbeque wings, Sarawak laksa and more.
