The hotel’s chefs have gone to great lengths to research the actor’s favourite food and have come up with a tantalising menu for guests available until Aug 7. .
Sous chef Zaidi Mohammad, junior sous chef Razif Maarof and chef de partie Fathullah Rarjali have included 14 of P. Ramlee’s favourites in addition to Thai, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
“We have 30 live cooking stations featuring over 100 dishes with five rotation menus for the entire month.
“Some of the legend’s favourites featured include Pucuk Paku Masak Lemak Ali Baba and Puyuh Goreng Kunyit and Ikan Keli Berlada,” said Zaidi.
Each P. Ramlee favourite has been named after his famous movies to bring back nostalgic memories.
The Ramadan spread will be served outside Kites, the hotel’s restaurant.
Zaidi who specialises in Middle Eastern cuisine, has brought in regular favourites such as lamb kofta and shish tawook.
“We also have the mussel bergedil, something we invented. Instead of the usual bergedil, the flavours of the mussels are infused in it,” he said.
The kofta is well seasoned and the meat fresh while the shish tawook is made from chicken and tomato puree with paprika. It is then baked for 40 minutes.
At the Thai buffet table, there is the plachorn pad prik khing and taud man goong.
“The first is white fish mixed with a special Thai Red curry sauce. The meat is tender and the curry powder adds a little zing to the sweet fish,” said Fathullah.
The taud man goong is fresh prawns dipped in breadcrumbs and then deep fried.
There are also the puri chat masala and Chicken Uppu Kari.
Apart from that, there will also be the all-time favourite Gear Box Soup, beef and lamb satay, Kambing Mamak and whole Lamb Roast, Arabic style.
For dessert, try P. Ramlee’s favourite, the bubur pulut hitam.
The Ramadan feast is priced at RM98++ for adults and RM65++ for senior citizens and children (age below 12).
On July 26, in conjunction with Nuzul Al Quran, the promotion is priced at RM78++ for adults and RM65++ for senior citizens and children (age below 12) .
