Seven menus offer both traditional and fusion choices.
BREAK fast this Ramadan with authentic Malay and international cuisine at Flavors in Swiss-Garden Hotel and Residences Kuala Lumpur.
From now until July 26, chefs from Flavours will present more than 50 dishes every night as part of the International Ramadan Bazaar Buffet.
“We have put together seven different menus, which will be rotated every night,” said Flavors Malay chef Mohd Firdaus.
Heading the team for the Ramadan buffet, the chef of 12 years wants customers to savour both traditional and fusion flavours.
Among Mohd Firdaus’ specialities are the Salmon Head Curry, Ayam Goreng Serai and Beef Rendang.
“Most of the Malay traditional dishes prepared here are family recipes,” he said, adding that he hoped to create a nostalgic feel for guests.
Also available are appetisers such as the seafood kerabu, rojak buah, keropok ikan, salad couscous,serunding ayam and the popular ulam kampung.
Over at the soup section, guests can expect Flavors’ special Sup Ayam Berempah, Sup Tulang Rawan and Sup Cendawan.
This year, Flavors adds on an Arabic section, which features all-time favourites such as nasi briyani, lambkeema, hummus and pita bread.
To tickle local taste buds, the flying bread, roti canai, will be served.
Guests can also try the chef’s famous roti boom, which looks like a compact roti canai but glazed with caramalised honey.
For those who have not tasted roti boom before, it should not be eaten with curry as this could ruin the bread’s sweet flavour.
Flavors has also set up a live cooking station – be it the carving station or the grill station — where customers will be able to see the chefs at work.
At the carving station, there will be a whole roasted lamb every night and a chef, will be on hand, to carve the meat for guests.
Over at the grill station, chefs will whip up grilled stringray, squid, prawns, ikan cencaru, ikan kembungand otak-otak.
Also served are the all-time favourite – chicken and beef satay.
Other local delights include the pisang goreng and cucur udang.
A meal is never complete without dessert, so check out the Malay kuih and Western sweets available. The favourites include dodol, tapai ubi, kuih bahulu, Blueberry cheesecake, Black Forest cake, pudding, French pastries and ice kacang.
The International Ramadan Bazaar Buffet dinner is priced at RM85++ per adult and RM40++ per child (below 12). Dinner is served from 6.30pm to 11pm, daily.
