Tel: 03-2272 8888
Business hours: 6am to 10.30am, daily.
Working or living in the city can sometimes make us crave for simple kampung food.
This Ramadan, if you are among those who want to break fast with kampung dishes, then head to Ramada Plaza Kuala Lumpur’s La Brasserie restaurant.
Dishes such as rendang tok, opor ayam, Minang–style dishes and various types of kerabu will be the highlight there.
Restaurant executive chef Fadzil Arshad said those who loved kerabu or Malay salad would be excited with his menu.
“Some of the raw ingredients can only be found in areas with Malay community such as Kampung Baru. However, we will serve them at the hotel,” he said.
He added that kerabu was popular in Kelantan and he wanted to bring the kampung feel to the city this year.
There will be about 48 varieties of kerabu, pickles and crackers at the spread (top pic) and 16 types of main dishes on a daily basis.
Among the other more outstanding dishes are mutton curry, pajeri nenas, Spicy Fried Chicken, beef rendang tok, lamb curry, oxtail soup, Ikan Masak Tiga Rasa, Udang Masak Lemak with Rebung, Sotong Cili Kering and Kailan Ikan Masin.
“We will serve opor ayam which is a typical dish from Muar, Johor.
“This dish is sweet and is popular among the locals there.
“Also try the Paru Alang Minang. Here, beef lung is deep-fried and sautéed with dried chilli. It is famous in Negri Sembilan,
“In Malacca, the Ayam Rendang Nangka Muda is famous.
“We will use young jackfruit for the dish,” he said.
Knowing that Malaysians love their comfort fried food, Fadli has incorporated cempedak goreng, pisang goreng and keropok lekor to the spread.
There will be two types of soup on a daily basis, one Western and a local flavour.
The dessert spread will have not less than 50 items and will feature local favourites such as kuih seri ayu and puteri mandi among others.
The Ramadan buffet is priced at RM100 nett for adults, RM50 for children aged between six and 12 years, and RM75 for senior citizens.
