HAVE a taste of home with The Light Hotel Penang’s Santapan Warisan Melayu & Tabaq Al Maghribi buffet dinner this Ramadan.

The extravagant spread of over 150 local, international and Moroccan delights at Spice Brasserie is carefully curated to evoke fond memories of yesteryear, especially the feeling of warmth, comfort and love of home sweet home.

Savour the whiff of nostalgia with mum’s style home cooking by the talented kitchen team led by executive chef Halim Mohamad every night until May 12.

The hotel’s general manager Raj Kumar said they were delighted to welcome families and friends once again to get together during this blissful season.

“We missed all our diners last year due to the movement control order (MCO) and we believed that they too missed indulging in our specialties.

“We hope that all patrons would adhere to the strict standard operating procedures (SOPs) while enjoying the lovingly prepared smorgasbord, ” he said.

The sumptuous buffet consists of a well-rounded mix of local delicacies of Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisines as well as delicious Moroccan creations.

Must-haves include creamy bubur lambuk, sup gear box Singapore style, ikan bakar and nasi briyani with accompaniments like ayam bawang D’light, kambing hitam manis and gulai kepala ikan.

The Gulai Periuk Besaq Kenduri Mak Ngah corner features tantalising dishes such as gulai tetel pisang and gulai ayam nangka pucuk ubi while the Chinese section serves The Best Ever Uncle H’ng chicken and duck rice and fresh dim sum.

Whet your appetites further with daging harimau menangis, telur lomak cili api belimbing buluh, ayam tagine, signature chicken shawarma, char koay teow and Hokkien mee, among others.

The Moroccan delights include M’qualli (chicken with daghmira), brochettes (meat in skewers), Harira (lentil and chickpea soup), Merguues (spicy lamb sausage), whole baked fish with harissa and Mechoui (Moroccan whole roast lamb).

There is also a tea corner with the tea master brewing up a variety of refreshing tea like masala, ginger and mint as well as Iranian tea.

The Ramadan buffet is priced at RM108 for adults, RM68 for children and RM90 for senior citizens. Reservations are advised due to limited seatings imposed under the SOP.

Rayyan Band will entertain throughout with good rendition of Nasyid, Malay, Arabic and Bollywood songs.
