THIS Ramadan, visit Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur’s Checkers Cafe as it serves up a sumptuous buffet of traditional Malay cuisine prepared by their very own team of chefs.
Themed “Jom Berbuka Puasa bersama Master Chef Dorsett”, the buffet line-up offers more than 100 dishes prepared by senior sous chef Badrul Hisham Shaari, demi chef Norashikin Hashim, junior sous chef Mohd Faizal Abdul Wahid, chef de partie Sulaiman Abdul Halim and pastry chef Badrol Hisham Mohd Ali with executive chef K.K. Yau at the helm.
The Ramadan promotion is on from now until Aug 10 and is priced at RM80++ per person.
During a recent media preview, the five chefs prepared an amazing array of what guests can expect for Ramadan.
A must-try is chef Norashikin’s Sup Rusa Dorsett Regency.
This flavoursome dish is full of spices and redolent with carrots and potatoes.
Another of chef Norashikin’s signature dish is the Braised Beef cooked Arabic style.
“Although this dish looks like a curry dish, it’s not too spicy. Instead, it has a strong spice taste from the use of cardamom, star anise and cinnamon,” she said.
For fans of shellfish, be sure to try chef Norashikin’s Siput Sedut Masak Lemak Cili Padi.
Chef Mohd Faizal’s Fish Curry with Tenggiri is also flavoursome and aromatic with coconut milk.
It it also not too spicy.
If you like something spicier, his Ikan Keli Asam Pedas is the dish for you.
Using only the freshest of catfish, this dish is spicy but did not mask the flavours of the fish.
Other highlights of the buffet include Pasumbur Padang Kota, Kerabu Perut Bersantan, Percik Burung Puyuh & Ayam Dara, Nasi Kerabu Bunga Talang, Gulai Ikan Talang Masin dengan Terung, Udang Goreng Bersambal, Lidah Goreng Cili Padi, Hati Goreng Sambal, Rendang Kuala Kangsar and many more.
For meat lovers, there is also Whole Roasted Lamb or popularly known as Kambing Panggang “Kuzi” Style throughout the Ramadan buffet.
Diners will be spoilt for choice at Checkers Cafe’s dessert corner as there is an assortment of Malay and Nyonya kuih, pisang goreng, cempedak, labu goreng bermadu, ice kacang and cendol, a variety of ice cream, and home-made cookies.
Beverages include sirap Bandung, sirap selasih, sugar cane, black jelly, teh tarik and coffee.
