THE Royale Chulan Damansara is sticking to its popular Warisan Nusantara (Archipelago Heritage) theme for its Ramadan buffet this year, though adding a modern twist to some of its dishes.
“We have retained Warisan Nusantara as this traditional spread is popular among our diners,” said Malay kitchen executive chef Zainal Abidin Said.
“Our Ramadan menu incorporates a mix of different cuisines, including local, Middle Eastern, Western and Chinese.”
The Ramadan buffet served at the hotel’s Royale Coffee House features four rotating menus, each offering more than 100 dishes.
New to the Ramadan line-up this year are Nasi Mandy Kambing, Ayam Golek Seri Siantan and Bebiri Kari Hijau (Lamb Green Curry).
“The Nasi Mandy Kambing is an Arab-inspired dish created using our own blend of spices,” said Zainal Abidin, who has more than 15 years’ experience in the Malay kitchen.
“For traditional dishes given a modern twist, we have chicken shawarma served in a wrap.”
On the restaurant’s signature dishes, Zainal Abidin said the rendang tok, briyani kambing and sambal udang were so popular that some diners even placed orders for takeaway or for their private functions.
“Our Bubur Lambuk Royale is also a must-have. It has beef and our own blend of herbs and spices,” said the 54-year-old chef.
Other main courses in the Ramadan menu include Opor Daging, Ikan Siakap Tiga Rasa, Sotong Sumbat Kuah Percik, Nangka Muda Masak Lemak dengan Perut Lembu, Ikan Merah Masak Lemak Belimbing, Puyuh Goreng, Babat Lemak Cili Padi, Udang Oat, Udang Lepa Susu and Ketam Cili.
Meanwhile, there will be more than 10 live action stalls serving grilled and smoked meats, pasta cooked a la minute, noodles, apam balik with assorted fillings andais kacang.
The dessert section offers both local and Western treats, such as tapai pulut, pulut inti, onde-onde, tepung pelita, coconut tart, mille-feuille, creme caramel and chocolate mousse.
