He urged patrons to give his favourite dish a go.

“I’m sure beef eaters will love this dish as it is not only my favourite but my specialty as well,” he said.

Apart from beef and turkey, there will be Chicken Breast Stuffed with Broccoli Mousse to be served with Mushroom Stew.

Then there is the Oven-Baked Cod Fish, a signature dish at the Carousel, along with roast lamb and chef Muha-mad’s healthy risotto cooked with onion, butter and vegetables.
