Diners have a selection of 30 dishes to choose from daily.
Diners breaking fast during Ramadan, may want to drop by the Kota Permai Golf and Country Club to experience its new bazaar-style setting, from July 4 to July 25.
Chefs will be serving a variety of main dishes at more than 10 individual stalls throughout the period.
The stalls will dish out Malaysian favourites such as ikan bakar, nasi kandar, yong tau foo and satay.
Diners can also opt for the selection from the pasta station and the barbecue pit.
The spread changes daily, based on seven menus, so returning diners will be spoilt for choice.
Roughly 30 choices will be featured each day, among them are local favourites like Ayam Masak Merah (top pic) and from the international spread, roast lamb.
Executive chef Khairuddin Nordin, an industry veteran who drew from his many years of experience to get the menu and flavours right, is responsible for coming out with the spread, .
“I always focus on simple cooking and to cook with the customer in mind. We want to give them the best value for money,” said the man who is fondly known as chef Din.
For starters, diners will have the choice of different Western salads, or local fruit rojak or even rojak pasembor, where the sauces of both sweet and spicy paste and peanut sauce are just the right dishes to whet the appetite upon breaking fast.
The fish curry is made with fresh tenggiri and milk, making for a mild curry and a healthier dish compared to coconut milk.
Not to be missed is the grilled lamb shoulder with either mint sauce or black pepper, which is not overly spicy. The sambal prawns, a mild and accessible version, goes great with a helping of rice.
Be sure to look out for the gulai kawah — chef Din’s favourite — which is a meat dish that is simmered over slow fire for about an hour, resulting in a delightfully tasty gravy.
The spread also features traditional Malay kuih such as kuih bakar, kuih lapis, seri muka and kuih ubi.
Those who have a sweet tooth will be happy to know that desserts such as sago gula Melaka, ais kacangand fresh fruits will be ready and waiting after their main courses.
The bazaar concept is something different from what Kota Permai has offered the years before but diners will still get to enjoy their meal surrounded by greenery and at the poolside, making it a nice setting for breaking fast as well as for a night out for dinner.
