Celebrity chef’s signature restaurant offers traditional favourites.
For the past 10 years, local celebrity chef Datuk Ismail Ahmad has been serving up home cooked buka puasa delicacies to his guests at his quaint restaurant in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
“We are all about food here, we do not really put much effort into decorating the place.
“The minute you step into our restaurant, we want you to be treated to the variety of food,” said Ismail who wants to keep his dishes simple but true to the traditional Malay culture.
The Negeri Sembilan-born chef said most of his dishes were not easily found in the city, hence he said those coming to Rebung would not only be treated to a full tummy but home cooked dishes.
Some of the dishes which will be made available are siput sedut masak lemak, pari masak assam pedas, telur itik masak lemak, dried salted fish curry, ikan patin masak tempoyak, ayam kuzi, daging salai masak lemak and ikan kembung sumbat.
Other favourites such as tauhu bakar, ikan goreng berlada, cucur bawang, roti jala, rojak buah, murtabak, assam laksa, popiah basah and rendang tok will also be served.
If you are not keen on making your way through the dinner queue at rebung for its curries, why not start your meal at the dessert table?
“Most of us break fast with something sweet after a whole day of fasting.
“So it is not wrong to start at the dessert table,” said the flamboyant Ismail who made sweet delights such as Pulut Durian, Pengat Pisang, Bubur Kacang, Wajib Durian, Badak Berendam and festive cookies.
While dining at the restaurant, guests will also be treated to local music performed on three different stages placed around the eatery.
Before heading home, Ismail packed us a box of dodol each.
“We make dodol here every night for our guests. They can even join in the fun of stirring this lovely dessert with us,” he said.
The buffet is priced at RM70 nett (adults) and RM48 nett (children aged five to 11 years).
The promotion ends on the last day of Ramadan.
