Hotel flies chef in from Penang to cook up a storm.

Abdul Mydin’s nasi kandar corner features a variety of mouthwatering delicacies such as Ayam Masak Madu, Kari Kepala Ikan Abdul Istimewa, Lamb Shank Nasi Kandar and Ikan Tenggiri Masak Kari Mamak Berbendi.
Other than nasi kandar, the hotel is also featuring an array of traditional Malay dishes.
Head to the Taste of Kampung section for dishes such as Sambal Udang Harimau Berpetai, Siput Sedut Masak Lemak Pisang Emas Muda, Daging Tetel Masak Asam Pedas Melaka and Ikan Keli Goreng Masa Pindang.
The hotel’s chef de cuisine Hasbullah Sabani said many of this year’s buka puasaspecialities were traditional dishes.
“Last year we featured fusion cuisine but this year we are focusing only on traditional Malay dishes,” he said during the media preview.
Hasbullah added that another must-try was the grilled lamb.
“I use my own marinade of spices, lemongrass, yoghurt and lemon juice,” he said.
As a result, the lamb is so tender and full of flavour that a condiment or sauce is not needed.
