SIGNATURE food from 13 states in Malaysia will be the highlight of Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s Ramadan buffet.
Helmed by executive chef Chad-Jan Neuman, the culinary team at The Cobalt Room have also prepared Middle Eastern specialities to add to the variety.
The Ramadan buffet kicks off the hotel’s Festive Feast.
Diners can look forward to dishes like Melaka’s Asam Pedas Ikan Tenggiri, Pahang’s Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak, Laksa Kedah, Terengganu’s Nasi Kerabu and Penang Rojak, to name a few.
The dessert counter will feature traditional Malay kuih like kek lapis Sarawak, talam pandan Sabah and cik mek molek from Kelantan, in addition to Western desserts such as chocolate cakes and puddings.
Like any Ramadan feast, the highlight is always the lemang and serunding, although the glutinous rice here was a little dry.
Personally, I prefer to have lemang with rendang, and their Rendang Daging Tok Perak was tasty.
The beef was tender and well marinated with spices.
There is roti canai, too, but I opted for the murtabak ayam which was slightly thinner than the ones you find at a stall.
The skin was not too thick and the filling was packed with chicken and onions, making it a delicious and simple meal.
You can pair the murtabak with either vegetable dalcha or mutton curry with Kentang Penang.
A good thing about this dish is that the meat is not gamey or chewy.
If you like prawn sambal, try the sambal udang petai.
The action counters has, among other things, grilled lamb. It was juicy, without any strong smell or aftertaste.
There is also lamb or chicken shawarma at the Middle Eastern corner.
The Festive Feast will run from tomorrow to June 12 from 6.30pm to 10pm.
It is priced at RM118 nett per adult and RM59 nett per child below 12 years.
All fully paid reservations made from now until April 30 will have a 10% discount.
