Grandma’s recipes are an important link to hotel’s first Ramadan promotion.
PULLMAN Kuala Lumpur’s buka puasa buffet dinner spread serves up different kinds of cuisine with some 150 dishes, in ensuring that every diner will be able to find something that they will like.
Having opened only late last year, this marks the hotel’s first Ramadan and Malay chef Borhan Senin, who joined the hotel in October, has been an important driving force behind developing Malay dishes on the menu.
“The team here are presenting dishes inspired by secret recipes inherited from their opahs (grandmothers) in order to deliver to guests authentic kampung flavours and experience,” he said. While many other places emphasise certain dishes, typically their lamb and briyani, Pullman’s array of dishes is an invitation to diners to select what they fancy.
The shawarma has a creamy texture and is a tad spicy.
The Seafood Pie, topped with an incredibly fragrant layer of puff pastry was a delightful find.
The buffet also offers a wide selection of Malay appetisers such as stuffed tofu, savoury salads and a few types of salted fish, a personal favourite, that can enhance the taste of just about any local dish you wish to have.
For local favourites, head to the outdoor area where stalls have been set up as chefs cook up a selection of fried items including various noodles, street snacks like cempedak and keropok lekor as well assatay.
Taking advantage of the durian season, a stall has also been set up serving the pungent yet creamy fruit and just beside it, another stall offers other kinds of local fruits such as jambu manis, rambutan, starfruit and even mata kucing.
A selection of local fruits are available at the buffet spread.
The spread also features some Chinese dishes, such as steamed chicken and Indian specialities including an interesting mixed vegetable dish that was dry, compared to the curry-laden ones, that was somewhat spicy and tasty.
All these will be available at Link, Pullman Kuala Lumpur’s coffee house which features a modern interior and seats 360 diners comfortably.
The Ramadan buffet is priced at RM125 nett per person. Ghazal performances will also be a highlight at dinner.
