I got an email invitation from Flavor, Swiss Garden Hotel KL to taste their Ramadan Buffet Spread which offering over 100 mouth-watery delicious dishes and there sure wanting myself to be present. As I arrived that night, I was greeted by a team of chefs headed by Chef Wong Yean Loong and watched them bring out the whole huge Roasted Lamb out from the kitchen. I was informed that it took six hours to prepare the lamb which was marinated with traditional ingredients such as lemon grass, galangal and turmeric. The Roasted Lamb was the main highlight of the night served with black pepper or mint sauce accompanied by Nasi Briyani. I managed to taste the tender juicy lamb, it was lovely and so was the Nasi Briyani.
The recommendations for the night were the Udang Masak Tempoyak, Rendang Tok, Sup Ekor, Bubur Lambuk and there were a lot more to feast such as Kerabu Aneka Laut, Rojak Penang, Bergedil Daging, Ulam-ulam Kampung, Ikan Masin Gelama, Ikan Masin Sepat accompanied by specially prepared Sambal-sambal and Sup Tradisi. The dishes were well recommended as my all time favorite dishes were Rendangs and Tempoyak and the chefs had them done perfectly delicious and so authenticly.
I went through the buffet spread served, as usual me being myself all the time and found Udang Masak Sambal, Ketam Masak Berlada, Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak, Ayam Goreng Serai, Ikan Sembilan Masak, Pucuk Paku Lemak Serai, Daging Masak Padang, Nasi Goreng Nenas with Udang Kering and Ayam Pangnang Perchik. There were also grill food such as Satays, Ikan Bakar and Sotong Bakar accompanied by Bee Hoon, Mee Bakso, Mee Tom Yam, Mee Rebus and Laksa Johor which were totally a local delicious food. I got to confess the Pucuk Paku Lemak was done perfectly hot and so desirable. There were a huge spread of lovely desserts that I adored such as the local kuih muih and nyoya style, gateux, mousses, sago gula melaka and also kurma fruits.
The Ramadan Buffet Dinner will be available from 6.30pm to 10.30pm every night, from the first day of Ramadan until Hari Raya. It is priced at RM80++ per adult and RM40++ per child or senior citizen.
