Bringing this great creation for this Ramadan is none other than Malay sous chef Azhar Alias, who wants Malaysians to taste the goodness of Malay food.
He said there are four types of menus each featuring dishes from at least three to four states.
“Our signature is the Gulai Kawah and dishes with masak lemak, which is very Malay.
“Malay cooking is about sauteeing, which has to be done correctly before you add in your spices to give it the authentic homemade taste.
“The smell and oil have to rise to ensure it is done properly and you can’t just simply ‘cincai’ the cooking because you are making it for people to eat,” he said, adding at Equatorial, they make sure people get the best experience during Ramadan.
Azhar shares some of the favourite this seasons with Ayam Panggang Buluh, Ayam Golek as well as something from the Middle East, roasted lamb.
The buffet is priced at RM99++ per adult and RM49++ per child, available from Aug 1 to 29. For the first week and last three days, enjoy a discounted price of RM89++ per adult.
Aneka Sajian Tradisional is served from 6.30pm until 10.30pm.
Adding fun this Ramadan, patrons can win prizes with the Happy Photo Contest when they submit a family photo that fits either the creative, humorous or traditional categories with a receipt from Aneka Sajian Tradisional.
