This Ramadan, Parkroyal Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be recreating the taste of authentic street food at its Chatz Brasserie with the Hawker Temptations Ramadan feast.

Prepared by sous chef M. Maniam, who has over 10 years of experience under his belt, diners will get to savour traditional favourites synonymous with the month of Ramadan.

“We have a different theme every year, but we decided to go with ‘Hawker Temptations’ this year so that people can enjoy Malaysian hawker food in a nice setting,” said Maniam.

Some familiar dishes that is sure to bring back memories are bubur lambuk (porridge cooked in herbs and spices) and ayam percik (grilled chicken in spicy sauce), prepared with love and passion, the way our mothers and grandmothers used to prepare it at home.

The chicken is slow roasted in spices until tender and juicy.

“There will be four rotating menus throughout the promotion, featuring various goodies that are sure to bring back sweet memories,” said Maniam.

The delectable spread will also include a selection of ulam and kerabu.

Maniam recommends the Telur Itik Masak Lemak (duck egg cooked in coconut milk) as well as the Buffalo Kurma.

Other main courses to look out for are the Udang Galah Goreng Mamak, fried with Indian spices for an aromatic burst of flavours, and the Ikan Duri Masak Berlada.

Those with a sweet tooth can rejoice as the buffet promises a wide array of sweet indulgence.

“There will be about six to eight different types of traditional Malay kuih every day during the buffet, such as ondeh-ondeh, lepat pisang and kuih talam keladi,” Maniam said.

He recommends the Bubur Kac­ang Hijau Durian with chunks of durian flesh in a grean bean porridge.

Diners who like a little hands-on action can customise their own desserts, such as the ais kacang.

With the new live action stations now available along the brasserie’s buffet line, diners can witness their all-time Malaysian favourites, such as the roti canai, chicken murtabak and capati, being prepared on the spot.

Watch the chefs in action as they whip up orders a-la minute, whether it’s grilled fish and cockles in homemade sauce or char kuey teow.

At the chicken rice stall, choose from steamed or roasted chicken or head on over to the roast lamb counter where diners can pick their favourite cut, which is served with black pepper, mushroom or mint sauce.

The Hawker Temptations Rama­dhan Feast is available from July 10 to August 7 from 7pm to 10.30pm daily.

The buffet is priced at RM98++ per adult and RM49++ per child.

Break fast at the Chatz Brasserie from July 10 to 16 to enjoy 40% off the normal price.

Guests staying at Parkroyal Kuala Lumpur and Parkroyal Serviced Suits Kuala Lumpur are entitled to 20% off the original buffet price.
