SARAWAKIANS craving for their signature Sarawak laksa this Ramadan can head over to Nook at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral.
The flavourful multi-herb infused broth with rice vermicelli, prawns, chicken slices and julienned omelette is a staple in the spread and will be served during the fasting month. Lime and spicy sambal is also served on the side for added flavour.
Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral executive chef Steven Seow and his team have designed a menu featuring some of the top Malaysian favourites to be featured in this year’s Ramadan buffet, calling it the “Chef’s A-list Malaysian Feast”.
Executive sous chef Mohd Rozaiman Mohd Sahid said apart from the Sarawak laksa, the chicken rice is also a must-have.
“It took many months of trial and error to get the perfect, authentic taste of the dishes,” he said.
The Sarawak laksa broth was spicy and aromatic. With a dash of lime, it gave a perfect sourish yet comforting feeling with every mouthful.
The steamed rice for the chicken rice dish, complement the tender chicken meat.
There was also the Stuffed Whole Lamb Kuzi served with Briyani Rice. Rozaiman explained that half-cooked rice was stuffed inside the lamb, and infused with the juice of the lamb. The result was a smoky aromatic rice that went well with the tender lamb meat. Vegetable dhal, cucumber and pineapple achar is also served on the side.
For appetisers, there was a choice of Malay salad and fried salted fish with sauces such as sambal belacanand budu. There were also Western salads, including coleslaw and potato salad.
The choice of desserts is also a mix of traditional Malay delicacies and Western favourites. There was Malay kuih (top pic) such as bengkang, onde-onde, ketayap and pengat pisang, as well as, bread pudding, blueberry cheesecake and pavlova.
The A-List Malaysian Feast Buffet is available from June 30 until July 26. It is priced at RM100 nett per person. Early birds who book before June 27 will only be charged RM80 nett per voucher.
