Paying tribute to Malay heritage

Roasted lamb better known as Kambing Panggang among the guest popular will be a highlight at the buffet.

RAMADAN is upon us and Best Western i-City Shah Alam intends to keep it traditional.

Understanding what locals prefer for the breaking of fast, the hotel is serving up a buffet spread of popular local dishes with the theme Citarasa Warisan Malaysia.

With some 30 main dishes set to be part of the spread, the highlights include Ayam Percik Kelantan, Rendang Daging, Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak, Ketam Gulai Nenas and Kari Udang.

Guests can also look forward to six live action stalls serving a host of local favourites, namely sup gearbox, kambing panggang, mee jawa, laksa, mee bandung, mee soup daging, mee kari, mee kuah, kebab ayam berempah and kambing asam pedas.

In considering the current hot weather and the need for thirst quenchers after a day of fasting, the hotel is whipping up kelapa bakar – a drink that originates from Sabah.

To make kelapa bakar, a whole coconut is roasted over charcoal for several hours, after which it is cracked open and the coconut water is extracted.

The coconut water thus has a burnt taste that is both flavourful and refreshing.

During the weekends, guests will be able to enjoy live performances and reflexology services by the visually impaired, thanks to a collaboration with the Malaysian Association for the Blind (MAB).

MAB members will also be selling their handicrafts at the buffet.

The Citarasa Warisan Malaysia buffet is priced at RM119nett per adult and RM55nett per senior citizen/child.

It is available from April 15 to May 11, from 6.30pm to 10pm.

BEST WESTERN i-CITY SHAH ALAM; A-GF-01 Golden Triangle, No. 6, Jalan Multimedia, I-City, Shah Alam, Selangor, (Tel: 03-5521 9000). Business hours: 6.30am to 10.30pm, daily.
