Delicious dishes infused with spices for an unforgettable experience at Impiana Hotel KLCC cafe.
WITH more than 200 dishes, diners will be treated to a sumptuous spread at Tonka Bean Cafe in Impiana Hotel KLCC.
With the theme “Delicious Dining Spread”, diners can expect Indonesian and local favourites such as Tempe Goreng Jawa, Pecal with Peanut Sauce, Ikan Bakar with Bumbu Spices, kepak and cencaru sumbat.
Impiana KLCC Hotel sous and banquet chef Ali Tuwin recommends the nasi briyani gam (chicken, mutton and beef) (top pic), a speciality of his that also has a personal story behind it.
“When I first came to the peninsula almost 20 years ago, I found the food here quite unique because there are so many spices and ingredients in one dish. The cuisine here is very strong and different from what we have at home,” said the Sabahan.
The chef’s other top picks include chicken wings grilled with honey as well as a wonderful mix of various seafood that make up the seafood curry, including crab, stingray, fish, prawns and squid.
To make it extra mouth-watering, he paired it with Beef Nasi Briyani Gam.
There are ample desserts available for those with a sweet tooth, including 18 flavours of Baskin Robbins, a chocolate fountain and a variety of condiments and traditional Malay favourites.
For a refreshing after dinner treat, the chilled beverage area serves different drinks including soya bean, soya corn, sugar cane, orange juice, mango juice and air mata kucing.
Local fruits, including durian, mangosteen, rambutan, banana and jack fruit, are also available.
Diners will be entertained by a seven-piece traditional live band throughout the night to enhance the Raya ambience.
