CONNEXION Conference and Event Centre (CCEC) at Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur, is ushering in Ramadan this year with two promotions - a wholesome Ramadan buffet at The Oak Room and a buka puasa banquet package at its function rooms and ballrooms.
“Our goal is to give the people of Bangsar South a fresh new place to break fast and a chance to try out our chefs’ creations, as our food and beverage options have always been one of the selling points of our venue.
“We are used to catering for large crowds while maintaining excellent standards,” said CCEC general manager Brendon Lee.
With its elegant design, tasteful furnishings and an inviting ambience, The Oak Room offers an alternative venue for business events or social gatherings in Kuala Lumpur.
From May 9 to 31, it will be transformed into a traditional village house for guests to enjoy food while soaking up the lively atmosphere.
The buffet will also be spread across three levels – appetisers in the main dining area, hot items and desserts in the al fresco section, and live action stalls on the upper deck.
“This year, the menu uses a lot of fresh traditional spices and local ingredients to ensure authenticity,” said CCEC specialist Malay chef Raja Romzi.
“Some of our must-try traditional Malay dishes are the Daging Bakar Bersos Percik, Paru Goreng Sambal Hijau, Gulai Kurma Kambing and Ayam Betutu.
“The recipes for these dishes are passed down from my grandparents’ generation to me and are usually only prepared during the holy month.”
He said the live action stall would offer Asam Laksa Sup Utara, satay, Bubur Lambuk Ayam, roti arab and grilled fish, among other things. Over at the dessert section there will be sweet treats like tapai pulut, tapai ubi, Bubur Butir Nangka and pistachio baklava.
The Oak Room’s Rasa-Rasa Ramadan buffet dinner is priced at RM98+ per adult and RM40+ per child.
Corporate clients or those with bigger groups of more than 50 persons can plan ahead with CCEC’s buka puasa banquet package, available from today to June 5.
The banquet menu will focus on traditional delicacies from the various states, along with a selection of fusion and international dishes.
It offers more than 60 dishes and six live action stalls.
