Barbeque promotion offers various meats and seafood in different styles.
IF THE idea of a relaxed poolside barbecue buffet dinner over the weekend appeals to you, then make a date with Spices @ Furama — an all-day dining outlet at Furama Bukit Bintang.
The restaurant’s barbecue buffet dinner promotion features a mix of international and local dishes, with a combination of grill and action stations.
Furama Bukit Bintang executive chef Kenneth Chee said the highlight is, of course, the grill section that offers both Western and local grills.
The Western grill’s menu has marinated chicken, lamb cutlets, beef sirloin, jumbo chicken sausage, tiger prawn and salmon fillet, while the local grill features Malay marinated fish (ikan pari and mackerel) and condiments.
“Each item has its own marination — house marination for the meats, some salt and pepper for salmon, and a mixture of chilli, lime, kaffir lime leaf and belacan for the local fish.
“The Western grilled items go well with baked jacket potatoes and corn-on-cob, while the grilled fish can be consumed with some rice or noodles,” Chee said.
Chee’s personal favourites are grilled ikan pari with cencaluk, grilled beef and salmon fillet.
The action stations are where the carvery, local noodle, teppanyaki and pasta dishes can be found, with the pasta items cooked a la minute upon request.
“We have two menus that we alternate throughout the promotion.
“The buffet will feature Oven Roasted Lamb Leg or Rib Eye (carvery), Prawn Mee Soup or Nyonya Curry Laksa (local noodle), and Chicken Teppanyaki or Seafood Teppanyaki (teppanyaki), depending on the day and menu,” he said.
Meanwhile, the main buffet section is where the appetisers like seafood on ice with oysters, tiger prawns, mussels and bamboo clams, soup of the day, and salad bar are located.
Chee said Friday’s featured soup of the day — Seafood Bisque infused with Lemongrass — has an East meets West where lemongrass was added for a fresh flavour.
For desserts, diners can take their pick from French pastries, tarts, mousse, fruit jellies, bread and butter pudding, ice cream or fresh fruits.
There is also the house specialty dessert — the tiramisu, which Chee said is unique because of its texture and alcohol-free concoction.
“The dinner’s main attraction is that diners can enjoy their meals hot off the grill by the poolside while enjoying the city view,” said Chee, adding that Spices @ Furama has a 250-seating capacity for both indoor and outdoor areas.
The barbecue buffet dinner is available only on Fridays and Saturdays in November, from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
It is priced at RM70++ per adult and RM35++ per child/senior citizens.
Spices @ Furama is also offering a “Pay for One and Get One Free” promotion for the full-paying adult price. Reservations are advised.
