THE movement control order (MCO) has marked many firsts for most Malaysians — restricted movement within certain hours, social distancing, stricter hygiene practices and quarantine for those returning from overseas.
My family can now add “enjoying a sumptuous Ramadan takeaway spread at home” to our list — courtesy of The Resort Cafe at Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa, Bandar Sunway, Selangor.
The hotel’s annual Ramadan promotion themed “Jemput Makan” has been turned into a Bazaar-To-Go format.
The takeaway menu offers over 70 traditional and speciality dishes that can be delivered and enjoyed in the comfort of one’s home.
The Selera Kampung set menu offers a choice of four main courses and two vegetables.
It is accompanied with appetisers such as beef and chicken satay, dates, some Malay sweets, a selection of sambal and two types of rice — steamed white and Arabic spiced.
For the main course, diners can choose from ingredients such as beef, lamb, chicken, green mussels, fish, squid and prawn, then have them cooked in styles such as rendang, gulai, asam pedas, buttermilk, lemak cili api, kicap or sambal.
The set menu is priced at RM238 nett and serves three to four people.
The set delivered to my family featured Beef Stir-Fried Dendeng Style, Green Mussels Kam Heong Style, Fish Head Curry, Freshwater Prawns in Chilli Paste, Chinese Braised Mixed Vegetables and Broccoli with Salted Fish.
The beef dish was the unanimous favourite as the meat was tender.
The portions for all dishes were generous. The freshwater prawns came in large sizes, while the other dishes were more than enough to feed my family of four in a single sitting.
The dishes were all packed in aluminium foil containers, so they were easy to unpack, serve and dispose.
The delivery included cutlery and serviettes, though these were not necessary since we were eating at home.
The hotel’s Bazaar-To-Go menu also offers an a la carte section featuring a selection of chef’s signature dishes and festive favourites.
This is ideal for larger families or those who want a bigger variety of dishes.
Options include Grilled Whole Lamb Marinated with Herbs and Spices, a Kuala Pilah speciality called Gulai Itik Salai, Deep-Fried Soft Shell Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk, Red Snapper Fish Head Curry with Assorted Vegetables, Lamb Shank Briyani Rice and Traditional Malay Oxtail Soup.
Prices range from RM43 to RM998 per dish.The Bazaar-To-Go menu is available now until May 21.
Orders must be placed at least four hours in advance for the set menu, 24 hours for the a la carte menu and 48 hours for the whole grilled lamb.
Orders can be placed from 9am to 2pm while pick-up or delivery time is from 3pm to 6pm.
Additional charges apply for delivery service, but it is free for customers within Sunway City.
